Smitten Kitten (Chapter Four)
Welcome back! Hope you guys enjoy this chapter!
So it became this thing, then.
Every few days Tony would ask both Bucky and Steve to come downstairs, and they would cuddle up on the couch until Tony was happy and purring, turning in circles between the two of them, head butting against their palms, his tail wrapping around which ever wrist was closer.
Then he would shift back into human form in his bathroom, and spend several minutes hugging both of them before going back to work.
It was helping, and the team noticed.
Tony’s cheeks were always lit with a pretty flush, his smile a little softer. He was more openly affectionate with the team members instead of being caring but sarcastic from a distance. In fact, he had gone so far as to let Wanda in Constrictor form loop herself around him when she needed to be held and Vision was gone from the compound.
Tony had happily sat on the couch and let her slither and slide until she was comfortable, smiling the entire time. Natasha had partial shifted as she watched, her own protective instincts kicking in seeing Tony wrapped in all those coils.
Tony had simply rolled his eyes and motioned her to come sit next to him, waving away the smoke as she huffed uneasily.
And Bucky and Steve watched with fond smiles on their face, holding hands beneath the table, lost in their own thoughts about their cat shifter.
