I snapped my phone shut and hurried away from the lab. Bruce stared after me. “Tony?” he called to me curiously. “Can’t talk now. I need to go,” I waved him off. I was too worried about (Name) to care. I jumped in my car and started driving towards (Name) s’ shed of a home. Yes, it’d be easier to go and get my Ironman suit, but I didn’t want to waste any fragile seconds.
My thoughts where running wild. I couldn’t understand why (Name) would be with someone like Allen. I figured (Name) was just afraid of what Allen would do to her. She could have come to us. The Avengers. She use to work at S.H.E.I.L.D, until she mysteriously quit. I had a suspicion Allen had something to do with it.
As Tony sped to (Name) s’ home, he heard sirens behind him. “Shit,” Tony hissed under his breath. He pulled over. His fingers drummed against the steering wheel. “Well, well, well,” the police officer said mockingly, “I never imagined to see someone like you getting pulled over. Mr. Stark,” I glared at the police officer. I fumbled with some money in my wallet. “I assume it’s for speeding, just take this money and go,” I tossed the dollars at him. “Only a billionaire would carry thousands of dollars,” the officer smirked but took the money never-the-less. I rolled my eyes and sped off again.
I finally pulled up to (Name) s’ house. Raced up to the front door, and used my spare key to get in. I heard (Name) scream. I dashed toward the sound of her scream. The door was locked. I jiggled the knob in frustration. (Name) yelped again. Her cries of fear made me jump. Angrily I kicked in the door open. I grit my teeth and through my whole body on to the door. I repeated the action over and over again, until it finally broke open.
“Tony,” (Name) squeaked. Allen hit (Name) in the head with the butt of his pistol, “Shut it you worthless bitch,” he ordered. I roared with anger. I threw myself at Allen.
I pinned Allen to the ground. “If you ever touch (Name) again, I’ll put a hole through your chest,” Allen glared at me. “What makes you think I’d listen to you?” Allen said tauntingly. “This!” I growled, punching his tan face in. When I finished, got up and walked up to (Name). She was crumpled on the floor. My body started to shake. The (brunette/blonde/etc.) wasn’t moving at all. Franticly I checked her pulse. A small sigh of relief escaped me. She was alive, just unconscious. I scooped her up, holding her limp form to my chest. “Who are you?” Allen asked, he wiped some blood from his nose. “Me?” I turned back to him. “I. Am. Ironman.”
At the hospital I sighed. Allen had done a great job of trying to kill (Name). When (Name) woke up from surgery I’d tell her that charges where being pressed against Allen. J.A.R.V.I.S had found other women Allen had abused. I contacted them and sent the money to press charges against Allen.
“Mr. Stark?” a nurse came over to me, “Miss. (Last Name) is out of surgery. She’s stable, but she hasn’t woken up yet. Seeing you’re the one who brought her here I’ll let you in. Considering what the poor things been through, waking to a friendly face would be a good thing,” I stood, smiling to myself. The nurse led me down to her room. “Let us know it you need anything,” she said. “Thank you,” I said to her. She gave me a crooked smile and walked away.
I opened the door. Her (s/c) was covered with bruises and bandaged. Her eyes were closed. Oh, how I wanted to see her pretty (e/c) eyes. I gulped heavily. I stumbled over to a chair and collapsed in it. I didn’t like the silence. Her scared voice rang in my ears. I kept hearing her call my name. I wanted it to stop. “If only you’d wake up (Name),” I sighed. A sudden rapping at the door startled me.
I looked at the door. It was the other Avengers. I stood and walked to the door slowly. When I pulled the door open, the other five of my team filed into the door. “How you holding up?” Steve asked. “How many beers do you have?” I countered. A drink would do me a great deal right now. “Now Tony,” Natasha started to scold me, “How many time has (Name) taken your drinks when you’d had enough?” “A lot,” I muttered. “Also you should remember that Allen drank a lot,” Natasha reminded. “How did you know?” I furrowed my brows. “We went to avenge Lady (Name),” Thor said. “Thanks guys,” I forced a smile. (Name) groaned slightly and opened her eyes.
Suddenly she had our attention. “W-where am I?” she asked. “You’re in the hospital (Name),” Steve said gently. She looked around confused. “You do know who are don’t you?” Clint asked nervously. She nodded. “Allen didn’t knock me around that bad,” she smiled lightly, but that smile faded quickly. “How do you feel?” Natasha asked. “I feel like I got shot,” (Name) mumbled. “That’s because you did,” Bruce said. (Name)’s frown deepened. “What am I gunna do?” she asked, “I can’t go back to Allen. He’d kill me next time for sure,” “You could stay with me. In Stark Towers I mean,” I offered. She smiled. “Thank you Tony,” she said softly.
As the hours went by. The other Avengers began to leave. I was the last to leave. “I’ll see you tomorrow right Tony?” (Name) said before I left. The (e/c) eyed girl sounded worried. “Why would you think I wouldn’t?” I looked back at her. “It’s just… I don’t want him to come here or anything,” she said. “(Name),” I walked back over to her, “I love you too much to let him-!” I stopped abruptly. (Name) was staring at me. “I… erm… I mean… uh…” I rubbed the back of my next awkwardly. “I love you too, Tony,” she said happily. I blinked at her startled. Before I could blink, (Name) had my face in her hands, and she was kissing me. I kissed her back.
I pulled away for air. She looked like a drowsy love sick puppy. It was adorable. “I’ll be back,” I murmured, brushing a string of her hair from her face. She smiled and wrapped petite hand around mine. “Just rest alright (Name),” I tugged my hand away gently. She nodded sleepily. “I love you Tony,” she whispered, in a sleep voice. “I love you too, (Name).”
