For the past five years, Stark tower had been the host of Tony’s infamous Hallowe’en parties. People came from all over the country to attend, and it had become one of the most exclusive events of the year. Being Pepper’s personal assistant meant that she somehow, had managed to get an invite, and not just as an employee.
“Does this mean I have to dress up?” She asked her boss, re-reading the invitation on her phone.
“Yes, Y/N.” Pepper laughed. Her back was turned to her, handing her a file. “If it makes you feel better, this is what Tony’s making me wear.” She opened the file to reveal a frilly Alice in Wonderland dress that was so not Pepper it made her laugh. “He’s dressing as the White Rabbit.” Pepper dead panned, making her laugh even harder, until Pepper joined in and both of them were bent over the desk, tears falling from their eyes from laughing so hard.
“I hope I’m not interrupting,” Tony stood in the doorway, and the imaging of him in white ears and a fluffy tail had you giggling as Pepper snapped the folder shut and put it back in the desk, trying to keep her face straight.
“No we were just discussing the party.” Pepper said innocently and Tony beamed at her.
“Everyone’s coming Pep, it’s gonna be the party of the year- New York Times even said it’s gonna be bigger than the MET!” Tony waited for the girls to show the same enthusiasm but they simply carried on with their work. “Y/N, please tell me you’re coming?”
“I wouldn’t miss it, Mr Stark, although I’m afraid I don’t have a costume yet.” She replied, smiling kindly at him.
“Well if you need anything, drop me a text- you’ve got my number right? I’m sure I can get something ordered.”
She nodded and smiled as Pepper and Tony left together for dinner, leaving her alone in the office. Once she was sure that they were gone, she collapsed on the sofa that sat against the wall and closed her eyes, allowing herself to feel the exhaustion that had been creeping up on her all day. She loved her job, but it took its toll on her; she had few friends and her love life was non-existent because she ended up going home most nights and without much energy to do anything other than lie in front of the TV with takeout and Star Wars.
Maybe she could go as Princess Leia to the party? She shrugged the thought away, trying to imagine herself cinnamon roll buns. She had a 70’s hippie costume that she’d bought for a party her mom had held the year before, she could just use that.
