After letting the receptionist know he was there, but he was early but in no hurry, a man sat down next to Clint. Clint and Tony were in the lab working on new arrows when Tony had been called to his office and Clint had decided to tag along.
Clint watched out of the corner of his eye when the man pulled out a quality but used laptop and started to flip though a collection of photographs that had been scanned from film photographs.
“Are you able to get the internet in here?” Clint said pointing to the guy's computer. The people in the guys photos were familiar and Clint wanted more information.
“I haven't tried. It's my daughter's birthday tomorrow and I'm looking at photos of her. The most recent photo of her is years old and my heart skips a beat when I see it every time. I'm Hank Summers.” Hank said reaching to shake Clint's hand.
“Clint. Why don't you have any more recent photos of her?”
“Two daughters. Out oldest got sick and we both wanted to help her get healthy but we could not agree on treatment and my job was basically transfer or find an different job. When I came home to tell my wife I found an empty house and divorce papers waiting for me. I fought for the girls but I lost custody and all contact with them. I was ordered to pay support for the girls but their mother never took the money so I put it into an account for each of them. I miss them every day.” Hank said turning the computer so Clint could see a photo of Hank and his family.
“Hey. What's going on out here?” Tony asked stepping out of his office.
“Hey Tony. Meet Hank Summers. Dad to Dawn and Buffy Summers.” Clint said pointing to Hank and the computer screen.
“How do you know their names? I never told you their names. How are they? How do you know them?” Hank asked looking between the two men intent on the fact they knew his daughters names. Maybe he finally had a connection to finding his daughters after so many years.
