Daredevil awoke abruptly at the laundromat. The smoke and ash of the neighbourhood had ruined his sense of day and he felt disoriented. Once he left Elektra back in Midtown, he headed straight here to find the place near empty with a note left for him by Spider-Man telling him (if he returned) where the others had gone:
Jessica, Danny, and Luke all went out to get a status update on the territories and Peter himself went to Horizon Labs with the Porcupine. Fury, Cap, and Hawkeye had already gone into the sewers along with Quake to find Elektra's bomb. He heard Linda snoring like a chainsaw in a cot not far away and he could not sense Time Knight anywhere. Looks like a lot happened in both his absence and his nap.
He reached for his special pop watch and began to feel the face. It was quarter after ten in the evening. Eighteen hours!? Yikes. Well, that explains the stiffness, he thought and with a heave, rolled himself onto the floor. He felt new stitches in the places Bullseye left his mark. It wasn't the only place that monster left a mark. He began to stretch as gingerly as he could so that the stitches (though not really serious and would likely not re-open too too badly if he needed to fight again, which he knew he would soon enough,) didn't pop prematurely. Linda already wasn't going to forgive him for taking another beating if she came to as it was from him grunting and moving.
He suddenly realized she also removed most of his costume (probably to look him over when he was passed out...) except for his mask. Sure Linda's got professional courtesy but they were sharing base space with otherwise complete strangers! He found his costume, a fresh classic red number rather than the armored costume he wore earlier (which given its battle damage was probably for the best,) folded neatly next to another cowl for him to slip over. He pulled it on with delicacy and then sat for a moment to centre himself. A long night had passed, and after he found the others, another long night was coming.
