Tony Howard Stark was, as usual working in his lab while his son was at school. Pete would be home soon and the two would work on a new project together with Morgan. She was so excited to have the chance to be in the lab with the other two.
However, Tony’s plans changed when an older man with white hair and a suit walked into the lab. He had the eyes and face that Tony hated so… so much. Tony dropped the screwdriver that was in his hand.
“Who the hell are you?” Tony asked as he looked at the man. He seemed almost offended and scoffed at Tony. “Who the hell am I, who are you?” Tony rolled his eyes and let go sigh.
“I’m Tony Stark… and you sir, have been thought long dead.” The man seemed to jump at the notion and looked Tony over. “So, what have you done now, Anthony… what kind of trick is this. My degenerate of a son, working in my lab.”
“What year is it.” Howard asked out of the blue. Tony smacked his hand over his head and muttered a few curses. “2019.” Howard nodded and let out a small hum.
“So, where’s Stane?” Tony looked away from Howard and thought for a second.
“Sore subject.” Tony responded, he looked over to where the armor would be if they were out of their protect cases. Howard nodded and then looked around the lab.
“Who’s running the company, it can’t be you.” Tony let out a laugh and nodded.
“Yea, no it isn’t me. However, the company is in better hands than mine. Plus, I’ve got bigger fish to fry.” Tony once again looked around the lab and gestured to it.
“I’m guessing you never amounted to much, the new CEO probably does this out of the kindness. I imagine you still go through women to the same degree as alcohol.” Tony rolled his eyes and let go another long huff of breath.
“Haha… Yea, sure old man. I need to get you home, before the… Never mind.” Tony caught himself but it wasn’t enough because the doors of the elevator dinged right as he said, ‘never mind.’
Pete walked in and looked around, not really caring about Howard he just walked towards the other end of the room and began to work on part of his web shooters. Howard studied the kid and then looked to Tony who couldn’t care less.
“What’s with the kid?” Tony looked from Howard to Pete and a small smile came across his face. However, Tony didn’t answer the question, he didn’t need to as far as he was concerned.
“Hey, Mr. Stark whose he?” Pete pointed to Howard with a screwdriver and Howard gave the kid a rather displeased frown.
“Howard Stark. You know, CEO of Stark industries.” Pete looked to Tony, Tony nodded, and Pete dropped the screwdriver that was in his hand. “How? How is he here.” Tony shrugged and Pete walked over to the group.
“So, who’s the kid. Can’t be yours… wait don’t tell me you.” Tony rolled his eyes and shook his head. “No, I didn’t abandon him or **** some random woman and find out years later that I was a father. He’s my, adopted son, and future Heir to this company.”
Howard raised and eyebrow at Tony and looked Pete over. Pete shifted a bit but didn’t say anything. Then once again the elevator doors opened and the three looked in the direction of its ding.
“Daddy!” Yelled a one little girl who ran over and hung on to her father’s leg. “Hey Morgan!” Tony grabbed Morgan and pulled her up into his arms. Howard looked over Morgan and then to Tony, once again he was going to ask the questions. However, the sound of shoes clicking stopped him.
Pepper walked over and looked at Pete and Tony. Then she looked at Howard and her eyes lit up with fire. “How the hell is he back here?” Tony shrugged and Pepper thought for a second.
“So… who’s this? Trophy wife or?” Now Tony really, really wanted to slap Howard, but he didn’t because Pepper burst out laughing.
“Nope, I’m not that. Pepper Stark, CEO of Stark industries… and it is not a pleasure to meet you again Howard.” Howard looked at Pepper and then to Tony.
“Wait, Pepper as in your assistant? Wait CEO, what the fuck, you gave my fucking company to…” He gestured to Pepper which did in fact land slap to the face. “What the FUCK!” He yelled.
“Can it.” Pepper said, “You do not tell me to shut up bitch!” That was it, Tony broke and so did Peter. Both of them tapped the housing units of their suits and both nodded to one another. Pete and Tony grabbed Howard by both arms and carried him out of the room. He was locked in one of the cells for a prisoner in the Avengers lab.
Tony, Pete and Morgan all spent the night working on a way to time travel… and with the help of Scott Lang, they managed to figure it out.
Welp, No one ever seems to write this with Pepper in it and so I did. This was just a little fun thing, and I hope you all enjoyed! Sorry for not posting today or yesterday, had car trouble, and felt down yesterday. And today I was out shopping.
