Warnings: fight, one swearing word but a little bit a fluff at the end,
Notes: I’m back home now! Sorry I didn’t post anything this weekend but I’m back!
Being Tony Stark’s girlfriend wasn’t like everyone thought it was. People
used to believe that everything was about parties and glam but it wasn’t like
that. Well…yes, it was but there was much more behind that not so many people knew.
You had to deal with the press every time you went to a public place,
especially if you went with him. Those long hours at every party seeing girls
flirting with him. He turned all of them down but still, as his girlfriend, it wasn’t
pleasant to see. Not at all.
And of course, the fact that he was Iron Man wasn’t helpful at all. You loved
that he was, you loved the fact that he saved so many lives. But having a
relationship with him put you in a dangerous place. And not only that, you didn’t
know when he would come back home from a mission or the state he would be in
when he came back, or if he would even come back.
He knew all your worries and he tried to make it up to you the best he
could. But sometimes he just got it all wrong. Most times, all you needed was
cuddle up with him at the end of the day, going to have a walk around Central
Park or just a kiss and some reassurance, and most time what you received were
strange and over expensive gifts you didn’t even need. Things like dresses, all
kind of technology, jewellery and so on. Everything he gave you was beautiful
and you knew he meant it well, but you hated when he spent so much money on you
when you didn’t need it. One week it had been an especially tough one for you. You were stressed
about your work, Tony had been away for two missions in four days and your mum
was always on the phone trying to manipulate your life as always. But what sent
you over the edge was getting home and Tony saying he had a surprise for you.
“What is it?” You asked taking off your shoes. Usually his surprises
were something extravagant but you really hoped he would surprise you today. Indeed
“You know all the times you’ve complained about that old phone you carry
around right?” He asked taking a box from the table and walking over you.
“Yeah…” You frowned taking the box from his hands slowly.
“Well, you don’t have to worry anymore”, he said smiling. With a sigh
you opened the box revealing an iPhone. But you didn’t recognise the type so
you looked at him. “It’s not even out yet! Apple won’t release it until September
but I managed to get one for you. I also made some changes so you can have a
holographic screen like mine”, he explained happily.
You really wish you liked it. You knew it was a good phone, the best one
in the world and it wasn’t even for sale yet. You didn’t even want to know the
prize of it. But seeing the device only angered you. Not saying anything since
you didn’t want to hurt his feelings you smiled at him and kissed his cheek
softly before walking to the room. Definitely, the best thing you could do was
taking a shower to relax.
“Honey?” Tony’s voice followed you through the mansion. “Are you ok? What
happened? Is it the colour?” He asked.
“No Tony is not the damn colour!” You finally exclaimed turning to look
at him. “It’s everything! All you do is buying me expensive shit I don’t even
need and for what? To make up for all the times you’re away? For all those
missions? Why?” You said looking at him. He looked at you speechless, it was
obvious that he didn’t expect that outburst but being honest, neither did you. “Don’t
get me wrong, I do appreciate everything but can’t you just stop? I don’t need
a Dior dress when you come back after a mission. I don’t need any Chanel shit
after seeing a bunch of stupid girls flirting with you just in front of me! I don’t
need a fucking iPhone 7 that’s not even for sale, Tony!” You stopped and took a
deep breath, waiting for him to say something but since he didn’t, you just
kept on talking. “What I need is you. That’s everything I need when I come home
after a shitty day. I need you to kiss me, to hug me and to make me feel better.
Because this won’t do it, that I can assure you”, you said putting the box with
the phone in it on the living room table.
“I…” He looked down at the box and then at you. “I’m sorry babe, I didn’t
know you felt that way about…this. I know I’m not around as much as I should
because of my work and I…”, he frowned. “I just want to give you everything”,
he added looking at you.
“And you give me everything just by being with me, don’t you understand?
There’s no need for all these over expensive gifts”, you said walking towards
him to hold his hands in yours. “If you want to buy me something, then buy me a
box of chocolates and that will do it. But please…stop with the Diors, Channels…and
everything. I don’t need that”, you said squeezing his hands.
He looked at you and pulled you closer for a tight hug, he wrapped his
arms around you and snuggled his face in your neck as you kissed it softly with
a sigh. He was such a good man and you didn’t deserve him. Not at all.
