“You said yet, that means there is a possibility that it can still happen right? ‘Sup, Mike. I’m RJ and it’s short for none of your business.”
"I…" Mike cut himself off. He did have a point. It wasn’t something he could entirely rule out. "RJ? That’s a funny way to shortening ‘none of your business’."
The official story as to why Mike has been gone:
SHIELD put him out on his first mission, which was horribly unsuccessful (not because of Mike or anyone on his team but more to circumstances they couldn’t control) which led to an extend stay in Greenland. If Mike ever sees an inch of snow ever again, it will be too soon for his own liking.
“Doesn’t hurt in trying. That, and what’s your name, bro?”
"Yeah, I think I’ll just hold out on making an ass of myself just yet. It’s Mike, to answer your question.”
“I have no idea, entertainment would be nice. Know how to juggle?”
"I could but it isn’t something I’m particularly good at. Have any other requests while you’re at it?"
"Oh, um, hi there? Is there something I can help you with?"
“SHIELD? It sounds familiar, but no I don’t think that I am. Who’re you?”
"Oh! Right! Sorry, that was rude. I’m Mike. Mike Bhatt. It’s nice to meet you, Ms…?"
Well, it’s, uh, kinda nice to be back?
They sent me out on my first mission and things got a little…out of hand.
That’s putting in lightly.
But it’s nice to be home in one piece again, I’ve gotta say.
