Sir, Colonel Rhodes is on his way. Shouldn't you be preparing for his arrival?
"In a minute, Jarvis. Just have to finish one...small....detail--there. All done," he said as he dropped the very fine tipped paintbrush onto the desk. Tony normally would have had Jarvis render the Mark II in an array of colors just to make fun of Rhodey's weekend wedding to a guy, but he figured a small rainbow delicately painted inside of the helmet where only he could see it would be substantial enough. Until he decided to take it off.
He'd already been down there for hours running scans, diagnostics and what have you on the Mark II, so he was thoroughly grimey and he wasn't sure just when Rhodey would get there. But anyone who looked at Tony could tell he was happy he was on his way. He'd really missed having his best friend around. Then a baby cooed which distracted Tony from his decision to finally go and shower. He smiled and walked over to Remy, who was holding the baby in her arms, bouncing him lightly to entertain him. He was definitely a Stark with the jet black hair and the curiosity for mechanical things since Edward currently had his gaze on Butterfingers, who was pinching motions at Edward as if he might go for the cheeks.
"Hey, if you pinch him and leave a mark, I'm using you for spare parts on his future tricycle," he said as he wagged a finger at Butterfingers. The robot drooped as he was chastised and retreated off to go and do something else. "I'm going to go get cleaned up before he gets here. Might as well look like a family man and not a bum," he said, kissing her first then kissing Edward on the top of his head.
