Natasha was now on her way to see each of them to let them both know that they were no longer confined to quarters, but they would each have deck duty for the next week. In Natasha's opinion, Nick was going easy on them. They should be cleaning the latrines for what they did.
The books in her arms were for Steve. He was a man out of time and needed reading materials to catch up. Natasha knew history, but she couldn't be around all the time to answer any questions.

There was a small bounce in her step if anyone stopped long enough to notice.
