Who: Remy Stark and Pepper Potts What: Their conversation when Remy goes to check on her and the baby When: Last night Where: LA Stark mansion Warnings: None
Regardless of what Remy had told Tony about taking the jet, she decided to take the portkey because she just wanted to get this whole thing over with. Ever since she'd decided to tell Tony about the thing with Pepper, she wasn't quite sure if she had done the right thing.
She knew she wasn't going to be able to keep it from him forever, especially with Pepper there. And she and the other Tony were in the news all the time with their... sex escapades. But what was done was done, and now she'd just have to deal with the consequences as best as she could.
After getting to LA, and to the other Stark mansion, she met the other Tony at the door. She thought maybe she should tell him about everything, but figured that telling Pepper should have been first. He took her up to see Pepper, and Remy put on her best happy face and went to check Pepper out.
Everything was fine with her pregnancy, and as far as Remy could tell, both she and the baby were going to be born healthy and happy, but she told Pepper that if she wanted to be looked after, she'd be happy to do it.
That's when she decided to bring up Tony. Carefully she sat down on the bed, looking a bit nervous. “Um.. there's something I have to tell you...” Remy began, not quite sure knowing how to.
“He.. remembers or you told him right? I.. I mean it's Tony..” Pepper began, “Of course he was going to ask questions and I think even if you had.. lied, he would have found out and that would have been worse.”
Remy just kind of stared at her and then slowly nodded her head, “Yeah... you're.. right. Exactly right. I didn't want to lie and I knew it was going to happen sometime. I guess it was better this way.
Except now he wants to see you.. and he all but demanded to come with me. I told him to wait until I had warned you. And of course if you don't want him to come, then that's your business. I just thought you should be warned.”
She paused, “I didn't tell him about .. the baby. I mean I told him you were pregnant but not that you were on bed rest or anything. By the way though I think you're okay, you might want to do some exercises? Just some advice.. because if you haven't been .. active, well you could be more .. the baby will come easier that way..”
Pepper nodded her head a little, “Thank you for warning me. I guess.. he can come if he wants. It's different now. I mean with my Tony.. and the baby.. I guess we all have to deal with it eventually. For the record I'm.. sorry I reacted that way..” she gave a small smile. “Thanks for the advice, I'll try..”
“It's .. okay. I mean, if I were you I would've.. acted the same way. It was bound to happen. I'm just glad that your Tony's here.. I mean he's just like mine.. in.. every way that counts..” Remy rubbed at her arm a little. “Maybe we can all.. get along. I'd like that.. y'know.. if.. the same thing doesn't happen again. Or maybe I just have to get over it.”
“Well.. I don't know what he's going to say or feel or.. whatever..” Pepper began, “But I love him the way I love mine.. and you should know that. I'm sorry if that's bad or wrong, but they're the same man.. it's kind of impossible not to. I seriously bet if you hung out with mine you'd be in love with him too..”
Remy's cheeks turned red a bit and she nodded her head. “Guess you've got a point.. you might be right. Okay. I'm gonna go.. head back over there so he stops freaking out and send him over here. I'll be over at least once a month, but if you need me for anything just call okay?”
Pepper grinned, “Okay.. I'll be waiting. Thank you for everything. Get Tony to walk you back to the portkey so neither of them gets worried about the pregnant women..” she gave a little wave as Remy headed out of the room and back downstairs so that she could go find Tony to take her back to the portkey.
