((MY HEART IS BREAKING AND I HAVEN’t EVEN START TO WRITE. And to make this easier -or more heartbreaking- I’m having it set during the whole Deaf!Clint dealio.))
The deaf woman glanced at the shirtless, sleeping man beside her. She had been sitting in the bed for quite some time now, trying to organize and control her thoughts. But she had no such luck, every inch of her being was conflicted, clashing with the other.
Her heart ached painfully in her chest, the dull thudding seemed to echo in her ears. Ah yes, her ears. She was able to hear now but at a price. It was that price that drove her to sitting here, contemplating her next action.
Clint didn’t deserve this, he didn’t deserve to have his hearing stripped from him. Maya shook her head slightly and brushed the wetness from her eyes. This was all her fault, if only she could’ve been happy with what she had, then she wouldn’t be here.
With a quivering hand and shaking breath, the woman slipped out of the bed and retrieved a knife, similar to a misericorde from the bedside table. It was a small, thin blade- perfect for the deed. The metal felt icy cold against her warm palm as she gripped the blade.
Every inch of her screamed no but she couldn’t stand to see him suffer. Not like this.
Her eyes darted down to Clint’s sleeping form. He was so peaceful when he was asleep. There was no stress, no confusion, no pain written over his face, only bliss.
She felt her breath hitch as she leaned over the sleeping man to give him one last embrace. She could feel him stir slightly beneath her and the slight rumbling as he let out a muffled cry of confusion. Her only response was to hug him tighter and press her lips to his forehead, her free hand slipping the dagger into his side and between the ribs where it found his heart with ease.
She didn’t dare look at his face; she couldn’t bear to see the pain, the expression as the man realized what had happened, the look of hurt from the betrayal.
Maya left the dagger in place as she cradled the man’s slowly stilling form. “I’m so sorry Clint…” It came out as a hoarse whisper.
And then the tears began to fall.
You disgust me, with your delusions of grandeur. You think that mutants are superior to humans?
Not to mention stripping the hearing from my friend? Whether or not if was by your hand that it happened, you still had a role in it.
I would call you the Hitler of our times, but I’m not sure who would be more insulted.
With a stony expression, Maya stared at the man. This was the one, she thought sourly. The one who had stripped Clint of his hearing.
She was trying to work herself up on purpose, after all, she would need all of her strength the kill this man and then some.
Normally Maya wasn’t one prone to violence or senseless killing but this time…This time something had pushed her over the edge. And that’s all that it took, one simple push in the wrong direction.
She knew of this man’s… “ability” and had worked diligently to find clothing that lacked metal. It was much harder for weapons. One could never be too sure after all. A mistake now would cost Maya her life.
The woman had settled on a bow constructed of simple wood as well as sturdy wood arrows. The tips were stone, not metal, giving everything a very archaic look. She nearly laughed at the irony.
For days she had stalked the man from the shadows, watching and waiting for the perfect moment to strike. Alas, a window of opportunity opened.
Strong hands nocked the arrow and carefully drew it back, cold fingertips were hovering by her cheek. Brown eyes watched as it was released, flexing and sailing through the air before finding its home in the man’s chest. To be sure, she set free another arrow.
The world suddenly felt just a little bit colder to her now.
Put "Kill me" In my ask and I'll write a drabble about my character killing yours.

Maya laughed softly before risking a glance around. “Oh, yeah. I’ll be fine. I just wanna make sure that it’s not too serious, you know? Can never be too sure with burns…” She trailed off, studying Cameron and his interesting choice of hair color. The woman found it amusing for some reason.
Cam nodded in understanding. “Yeah, I understand, and that one looks nasty.” He pointed to a tall building down the next block. “That’s it there,” he explained and continued walking.
She gave him a warm smile. “Thanks, I really appreciate it. I’m kind of new around here.” The woman honestly didn’t know if she was lying or not anymore. “So uh…” Maya trailed off slightly, unsure of what to even say.
