*sitting in the car, looking out the window, he has never actually been anywhere else in New York state, always stuck to the city, too poor to get a train anywhere further than New Jersey, so he's real interested in seeing the houses going by, the glimpses of the Hudson, as they make their way up to the foster home where Tony's daughter - and if that ain't a weird thought - has been living since her mother died*

*can't stop fidgeting, legs jittery, wishes he had had a drink before he left, or at least taken an Ativan, she's going to think he's a lunatic, he is a lunatic, who in their right mind would entrust him with a child* What the hell do I say?

*looks out the window, drumming his fingers on his thigh, silent for a moment before he starts speaking* Carol -- her mother -- Carol and I were together for a few years. Longest relationship I've had, uh, ever, still. She got pregnant, it was an accident, we talked about it, decided we'd be extremely shitty parents and it was better for her to -- to terminate the pregnancy. *swallows, cracks his knuckles* She went with her mom, which was, you know, totally fine, but she was so weird after, and then she disappeared. Ran off upstate, sent me a vague letter about how she couldn't deal with me after what happened, and it was -- difficult, but I -- I respected her wishes and I left her alone and -- *his face twists up and he suddenly slams his fist hard against the door, so angry at the betrayal* She didn't tell me, not fucking ever, as if I don't have a fucking right to know she kept the kid.

...I don't have enough information to answer that yet. *glances at him* I'll let you know in an hour or two.

*huffs a shaky laugh* You didn't know me as a kid. If she's anything like me, she'll be a terror. *eyes him, doesn't know how to express how much he enjoys it when Steve talks about his life before, it's fucking fascinating* Thanks for, um. Telling me all that.

*shakes his head, even though he feels like he's going to be sick, and climbs out, tugs nervously at his t-shirts, glancing down to make sure the light of the arc reactor is somewhat muted, glances at Steve* Don't let me fuck this up, okay? *doesn't wait for a response, just walks up to the door, takes a deep breath, and rings the doorbell*

*opens the door, looking a little flustered but smiling anyway* Hello, Mister Stark. *nervously, offers her hand* I'm Gina Garten, CPS told me you'd be coming by. *looks at the tall, handsome man behind Mr Stark, shakes his hand, too* Come on in. I've got some lemonade, coffee, sodas. Can I get you anything?

*leads them into the house, which is spotless, obviously professionally cleaned, the SECOND CPS called to say that her foster's father, TONY STARK, was going to come and see her*

No, thanks, I'm fine. *smiles nervously, slides his hands in his pockets to hide the fact that they're shaking* Sorry, hah, kinda nervous right now, is she -- Amelia, can I, uh. See her?

Of course! Have a seat, I'll go get her - she's out in the backyard. *scurries off*

*comes in, obviously nervous as well, barefoot and wearing jeans and a Black Widow t-shirt, her hair in a messy ponytail, hovers in the doorway between the kitchen and the living room, regarding the men on the sofa warily* Um, hi. *softly* Gina said to come see you. *swallows* Hi.

*stares at her, she looks -- well, she looks like him, mostly, but there's Carol in her eyes and her nose and he suddenly realizes he doesn't know how Carol died and Jesus, Jesus, this is his daughter* Hi. *manages eventually (and thank god for Steve), stands up slowly and goes over to her, and she's small, about the same size he was at that age, and he crouches down, meets her eyes, hopes against hope he doesn't fuck this up* It's really nice to meet you, Amelia.

*sticks out her hand, because that's how her mom taught her* It's nice to meet you too, Mister Stark. *looks at him* You look like me. Mom said we looked alike. You look a lot better in person, Mister Stark.

*laughs and shakes her hand, his chest tight* We really do look alike, huh. And wow, seriously, please call me Tony. Er, that is -- if you want to. You don't have to. But I -- I'd like you to.

Okay. Mom only called me Amelia when I was in trouble, so I like Amy better. But you can call me Amelia too if you want. *looks at him* Gina said since you're my dad I might go live with you but you have to decide. I don't have to live with you if you don't want me to. Gina said my best friend's mom offered to let me live with her if you said no. *notices a really tall, blond guy behind Tony, but doesn't say anything*

Amy. *and it's not even a choice, is the thing, it's not even something he has to think about* Amy, right -- I'd really, really like you to come live with me. If you want to. *wants to barrage her with questions, wants to know everything about her, but he's also hyperaware that she's just lost her mother, and yeah he was six years older than she is now when his parents died but he gets it, to a certain extent, he does, and tries to be careful*

*surprised, her eyes go big and her mouth opens a little, she'd honestly expected to be allowed to go live with Lily and her mom, had never really thought someone as busy and famous and Tony Stark would want her around, even though her mom had said Tony could be a really nice guy* Really? *a very faint smile, the first one in a week* To your house? Where do you live? I know you got a house in California but I thought I saw online you live here too. 'Cause I don't want to go to California, unless it's just for Disneyland. Have you been to Disneyland? Could we go, maybe? Um. *realises she's babbling and feels like a complete idiot* Sorry. I talk a lot. Mom was always telling me I talk too much at once. Sorry.

*grins, utterly delighted* Yeah, me too, actually, don't worry about it. I live in the city, in a really big building Steve here says is ugly but it's totally not, it's awesome, and yeah, we can definitely go to Disneyland sometime, that's a promise from me to you.

Really? Can we bring Lily? Oh, I know about Stark Tower! I saw it on the news when it blew up. Mom cried a lot because she said it was like 9/11 again. But I like the new sign with just the A. Who is that? *points at Steve* Is that your boyfriend?

*grins* He's also ridiculously modest. Amy, this is Steve. You may have heard of him under his other, fancier name, Captain America.
