Author’s Note: Sorry for not posting! I had Prom, my mom’s birthday, and mother’s day two weeks ago. And this last week
(end of the school year yayyy or well two more weeks) I had a bunch of test/projects to do. I didn’t have time to look at requests so I at least wanted to post something! Enjoy the dabble! Also I am working on Masked (it’s coming I promise!)
Waves softly crashed onto the beach as Tony ran his fingers through your hair. The two of you were swinging on a hammock watching the sun set into the horizon. He was grateful that you managed to convince him to take a vacation because he needed it more than ever.
“I told you we needed this,” You hummed in content snuggling into his chest.
“You were right,” Tony responded.
He watched you raised your head up slightly with a smirk on your face. “I’m sorry did you just say I was right? I never thought I see the day.”
“Aren’t you so funny.”
You giggled into his chest happily before letting out a small yawn. Raising an eyebrow, Tony returned to playing with your hair as you sighed with delight. He knew too well how much you loved people playing with your hair. It was almost a weakness in some cases - unless you were too stubborn to give in.
“You know,” Tony began before hearing soft snores coming from you. “Never mind then,” He chuckled quietly not wanting to wake you up.
Putting one foot in the sand, he began rocking the hammock in hopes that you would stay asleep. You needed the sleep anyway, you two just got off of a two-week long mission and the two of you definitely didn’t get the rest you needed. It was only second to last day of the mission when you suggested that both of you should take some time off and he couldn’t agree more.
Tony doesn’t remember the last time he actually had a proper vacation but he definitely knew it’s been a long time. The two of you just got here and already he felt calm. For the first time in forever, he felt an inner peace he lost all those years ago and that was thanks to you. You helped him build himself back up again and make peace with his demons. He barely had panic attacks anymore and he honestly felt like a much happier person.
Keeping the hammock rocking, he kissed the top of your head as you mindlessly buried your head in the crook of his neck. Smirking as you mumbled to yourself before snoring once more, he kissed your forehead. Waiting a few moments until he knew you were fully asleep, Tony grabbed a small box out of his pocket. Flipping the box open, he stared at the ring he had gotten months ago in secret.
At first, he didn’t know when he was going to pop the question, a part of him worried you would say no. After a long mission of close calls, he knew, that he needed to ask you when he had the chance. But he wasn’t going to ask you now, you looked so peaceful in your slumber that he didn’t want to disturb you. So instead, Tony put the ring back in his pocket and listened to your steady breathing. Now all he could do was hope that when you both returned from your little getaway, that you would have that ring sitting on your finger.
And you eventually did.
