I am a male who lives in relatively nice neighborhood
It’s your average small town run of the mill suburbs area with not a lot of people.
I am a college kid who’s home on break while my parents have gone away which doesn’t help at all.
I have a two story house
I do not have gun nor do I have any real weapons other than kitchen knives
I am not on any medication and I have no record of schizophrenia or any other mental illnesses
I barely have any relationships with my neighbors most of whom are elderly and the rest I have minimal contact with
I do not have any people in my neighborhood (that I know of) who have reasons to attack or harm me
Now, let’s get into what has been happening. About two nights ago I
woke up very late in the night and I went to the bathroom to go take a
shit. Now, my second story bathroom has a window that can see the
entirety of my backyard. Directly behind it is a cul de sac which you
can see directly into. There is a group of trees and pile of rocks and
mulch that divides it. Usually I can see everything in my backroom
without turning on my because lights from my neighbor’s house dimly
lights the room.
(A/N: This is loosely based around the headcanon I had about Tony loving to dance and Pepper using it as a way to calm him down.)
was gentle, soft as she called out his name from the doorway of his cluttered
workshop. Tony paused his tinkering on the arm of a new and improved Iron Man
suit, glancing up in surprise to find the CEO of Stark Industries watching him
from across the room. “What do you need, Pep,” he inquired, his tone still
slightly distracted as he let the screwdriver he was working with fall with a
loud clatter to the counter. Without thinking, he then wiped his now free hand
across his damp forehead, leaving a trail of black oil in its wake, although he
certainly didn’t notice.
Pepper smiled at
Tony in the sweet way that she seemed to have reserved just for him. “Nothing,
really,” she began, hugging her iconic clip board to her chest. “It’s just… It’s
getting late, Tony.”
“Is it?” he
asked, genuine surprise coating his voice. He squeezed his eyes shut tightly,
feeling the extensive weariness that dwelled there. Tony opened one only to
peek over at his lovely girlfriend. “I’m sorry.”
Again, with that
damning smile. “Hey, it’s alright.” Pepper paused, tilting her head to the side
in silent consideration before hesitantly walking over to him. “I’m just a
little worried. About you,” she confessed, carefully setting her clipboard down
on Tony’s disorderly counter.
He opened his
other eye, grimacing slightly as her worried expression came into full view.
Immediately he began to remove the robotic limb from his arm if only so he
wouldn’t have to look at her. “I know, I know. I’m sorry, Pep.” Tony stretched
out arm, relieved to no longer have the bulk of the metal weighing it down. He
then glanced down at his hands only to find them stained a greasy black from
the oil he had also been working with. Quickly he wiped them off on his already
worn and filthy jeans in an almost ashamed manner. “Sorry.”
quivered slightly as she cautiously raised a pristinely clean, white clad arm
and rested her hand on the side of Tony’s face. She brushed a gentle thumb
along his cheekbone and that gorgeous smile returned in full swing albeit a bit
sadder than before. “It’s fine, Tony. I don’t mind.” He knew she wasn’t just
talking about the oil. That was a mess that could be cleaned.
Pepper wound her
other arm along the back of his neck, her fingers just grazing his jaw line. “You
want to tell me what this is about Tony?” she questioned, the inquiry simple
and innocent with no underlying maliciousness.
“Would you believe
me if I said I don’t really know?” Tony asked, his tone honest and
uncharacteristically vulnerable. Without him meaning them to, his fingers
twitched, desperate to get closer to Pepper but scared that they would taint
her, stain her beauty. A surprising metaphor that perfectly summed up his current
feeling towards her.
always, his favourite CEO noticed the small, distressed tremble of his fingers
and immediately removed her hand from his face so she could intertwine those
said fingers with her own. “Tony,” Pepper murmured, rubbing her thumb, instead,
along the back of his hand. “You know I don’t mind a little dirt.” To prove
that last statement to him, she pulled Tony closer towards her, silently urging
him to wrap his arm around her waist. When he did, she beamed at him, the
expression gentle and adoring.
“I’m going to
ruin your clothes, Pep,” he grumbled, irritated by the griminess of his hands.
“And I said I don’t care, Tony,” she
responded, her tone determined yet still undeniably soft. “Anyways, I believe
we have more important matters at hand.”
raced, hundreds of meanings attaching themselves to Pepper’s last remark. Good
and bad, lovely and irksome. Although the fear quickly eased itself into his
head, staining the positive thoughts like the oil stained his hands or Pepper’s
white jacket. She simply had more work
for him to complete and she’s upset
with him and just biding her time until she can confront him were the most
common qualms that plagued his mind. “And what would those important matters
be, Ms. Potts?” Tony inquired, feigning his usual coy mannerism that he had
been missing these last few weeks.
“If I’m not
mistaken,” Pepper began, noticing the doubts and insecurities that lay behind
the false coat of bravado in his tired, brown eyes. “You owe me a dance, Mr.
There was no
mistaking the relief that washed over his features in that moment. Tony gaze
flickered downwards to where their hands were intertwined and then back to
Pepper’s lovey blue eyes. Suddenly, for what felt like the first time in
forever, he broke out in a wide grin, uncaring and genuine. “It would be my
pleasure Ms. Potts,” he conceded, dipping his chin slightly in what he wanted
to appear as elegant acknowledgement but probably looked more like goofy bashfulness.
The two spun in a
slow circle, swaying gracefully in time to the beat of a non-existent song. “By
the way,” Tony added, letting go of her hand to wind his arm around her waist
to join his other. “I find it rather disconcerting for you to use my deepest,
darkest secrets against me.”
Pepper snorted snaking her arm around his
neck. “And what secret would that be, Mr. Stark?” she inquired, teasing him as
amusement shined in her wide eyes.
He rolled his
eyes, the action exaggerated and comical enough to make her smile brighten and
the sadness creep away from her eyes, even If it was only just a little. “Don’t
make me say it out loud, Pep,” Tony stage whispered, as he led her in an
“Say what out
loud?” Pepper responded, her tone innocent and mildly curious.
remarked casually shaking his head disappointedly at her. “Has anyone ever
mentioned how cruel you are Ms. Potts?”
“I have no idea
what you’re talking about Mr. Stark.”
“You know exactly
what I’m talking about.” Tony drew her a bit closer to him, his hands pressing gently
into the small of her back. He dipped his head slightly so that his lips were
almost directly next to Pepper’s ear as he murmured, “You know most people
would consider it rude for you to extort my love for dance in this way.”
exclaimed, pulling back a little so she could look into his eyes. “And how, may
I ask, would I be extorting you Mr. Stark?”
respond with his usual wit, Tony simply gazed at Pepper, trying his best not to
smile at her like a lovesick fool. “You do realize I’m called a genius for a
reason,” he remarked, leading her into a quick, breathtaking dip.
“Are you now?
Because, to be honest, I haven’t really noticed.”
funny, Pep,” Tony said drily yet completely fondly. He lifted her back up and
they resumed their rhythmic swaying. “But I’m serious. It’s very kind of you
but you know you don’t have to dance with me every time you notice that I’m
feeling a bit down.”
quickly faded from Pepper’s face leaving in its place a wistful sadness. “Oh
Tony,” she whispered, pulling him in close and resting her chin on his
shoulder. “Of course I have to.”
tone became distant and tinged with a familiar bitterness. He tried to pull
away from her but she kept him there, close to her.
I have to,” Pepper interrupted, unwillingly to let Tony fade away from her
again. “You give so much to everyone else you deserve a little peace of your
own from time to time. And if dancing gives you that, Mr. Stark-“ She drew away
from him for a moment only so she could make him do a small spin under her arm-
“Then it is my honour to dance with you.”
If Tony had been
a more emotional man, he would’ve wept at the knowledge that he had someone as
good and pure as Pepper in his life. At the moment, though, he simply sent her
an awestruck smile and pulled her in close, once again. “What did I ever do to
deserve someone as perfect as you, Ms. Potts?” he inquired, pressing his face
into shoulder, breathing in her clean, fresh scent. The smell of Pepper- his Pepper. For she was his. And he was
“I’m not too
sure, Mr. Stark. But you have me, and that’s all that matters.”
