After Tony’s B.A.R.F presentation at the MIT Alumni event,you watch as he simply stares at the final words on the teleprompter he was suppose to say to the audience.”Now I would like to introduce the head of the foundation: Pepper Potts.”
Tony and Pepper had recently hit a pretty rough spot in their relationship.Because of this,Pepper hadn’t showed to the event.Tony new about this and was fine until those words came up.It made him realize just had big of a part she had in all of it,and how much he had missed her.
You immediately beat yourself up about the incident even though it was out of your hands.Because Pepper had canceled last minute,they didn’t have time to change it before Tony went on.You tried to tell him this as he walked off stage to which he replied: “It’s…fine.I’ll be right back.”He then made his way to the restroom,leaving you feeling guilty about not just the incident,but about Pepper not showing up as well.
After a while,you went looking for Tony to make sure he was okay.Finding him staring down the hallway at a retreating woman,you approached him cautiously and asked if he was okay.After a moment,he placed a hand on your arm.”Yeah,” he said “let’s get out of here.”
After Tony rounded up Steve and Sam.
Steve looks at the wall of various monitors,focusing on the one that shows his closest companion locked up in a metal box.
“Hey,you wanna see something cool?” Tony says,bringing Steve’s attention to him.Tony holds up a slinder,black box.”I pulled it from Dad’s archives.Felt timely.” He puts his coat down as Steve takes a seat at the table.
Tony puts the box on the table,opening it then turning it towards Steve.”FDR signed the Lend-Lease bill with these in 1941.Provided support to the Allies when they needed it most.”Steve studied the black box with a shake of his head.”Some would say it brought our country closer to war.”
Tony stops and chooses his words wisely before saying with a teasing smirk “See?If not for these,you wouldn’t be here.I’m trying to…what do you call it?”He sits down with a grunt as he tries to think of the right term.”That’s an olive branch.Is that what you call it?” Tony rubs his hand over his mouth,a signal of stress and discomfort.He doesn’t know where this conversation is going,but he wants it to end with Steve signing those papers.Realizing that was possibly Tony’s angle,Steve decides to change the subject.
“Sam tells me his sister,Alana,is your new assistant.How’d that come to be?”he asks.Tony remembers it like it was yesterday.
“Some how knowing he visited me there,she came to my office looking for him.Instead of just telling her where he was,I sat her at my desk where my business phone was constantly ringing and told her to take care of it while I handle some things.I wasn’t thinking and I expected to come back to a catastrophe,but she handled like a pro.”He recalled with a fond smile. “Now she’s here somewhere,doing what she does.” He waves his hand aimlessly then puts it back under his chin.
Steve smiles at the story,not knowing what he expected but definitely knowing it wasn’t that.
After Baron’s evaluation with Bucky.
After a very long and stressful day,Tony was eventually able to make his way back home.He coops himself up in his lab,as he always does,and tries to wrap his head around everything that has happened in the last few days.You eventually disturb his peace,approaching him and smiling when he looks up.
“It’s late,Lay.” He says tiredly,but with no real heat behind it.If anything,he was glad you were still there.You couldn’t help but chuckle at the irony. “Says the one who’s cooped up in his lab at 1:00 am.”As you’re able to really get a good look at him,you become more serious.”Looking like he’s balancing the weight of the world on his shoulders.And I’m sure this feud between you and Pepper isn’t helping.”He sighs and rubs his hands over his face.
“Yeah,’feud’ is one way to put it.”
“I know it’s not my place as an assistant,but as a friend-” you start but as he finally turns to you fully at the mention of the word that didn’t fully describe what you were to them,you became a bit timid.”I’m worried.About both of you.”
He takes your hands in his,bringing one up to his lips and kissing it tenderly. “There’s nothing you need to worry your pretty little head about,Alana.”
“I-“ you start,but huff when you realized you didn’t know how to respond.He started talking again before you could think of something anyway. “And with that being said,I want you to get out of these clothes.” he begins,making you look at him in shock.Noticing your face,he chuckles.”And I want you to get some rest.You’re going to see Pepper in the morning,and you’ll be with her until further notice.” He finished.
You gawked at him. “You’re under enough stress as it is,Tony,I don’t think sending the help away is the right way to go.”
“Don’t call yourself that.You know you’re so much more to us than that.”He said,making you shy all over again. “I just want her to have someone right now.” He says quietly,as if he’s scared to admit the fact that she’s probably hurting just as much as him.You get it,you really do.But like you said,you were worried about him.
“And what about you?” You asked.He smiled a pained smile.
“I’ll be alright.”
You didn’t believe him,obviously.Instead of pressing the matter though,you pulled him up by his hands - putting his arms around your waist then putting yours around his neck in a warm embrace.
