Evelyn cut up some strawberries and placed them into a bowl while Steve and Natasha let Scott into the Compound. When they entered the living room, Estelle emerged from her bedroom with Sammy in her arms and sat on the couch in front of the bowl of strawberries that were placed down for her. Scott stared at the girl with a frown, especially as he watched Evelyn communicate with her and also the baby.
"You guys had kids?" He asked, his mouth still agape.
"Yeah, about five years ago I had Estelle, and Theodore came along a few months ago," Evelyn told him with a small smile before beginning to feed Theodore.
"Who's that?" Estelle asked, pointing a finger at Scott.
"I'm Scott," he replied.
"A friend of mommy and daddy," Evelyn told her.
Her eyes widened. "Is he one of your superhero friends?"
Scott grinned. "Well, y-yeah. Yeah! I'm Ant-Man!"
Estelle frowned at that. "That's a silly name." She went back to eating her strawberries as Evelyn stifled a laugh at Scott's face.
Scott blinked for a few seconds and then looked away and began to mutter under his breath. And after a while of him doing that, he began to pace the room. "Scott. Are you okay?" Steve asked him after him, Evelyn and Natasha shared a look.
"Yeah. I'm fine." He rubbed his hands together and stopped on the spot. "Have you ever studied Quantum Physics?"
"Very briefly," Evelyn said. "I read four maybe five books on it before."
"That's more than I've read about it," Scott said.
Natasha shrugged. "I've only mentioned it to make conversation."
"Alright. So, five years ago, right before....Thanos, I was in a place called the Quantum Realm. The Quantum Realm is like its own microscopic universe. To get in there, you have to be incredibly small," Scott explained. "Hope, she's my...She was my...She was supposed to pull me out. And then Thanos happened, and I got stuck in there."
"I'm sorry. That must've been a very long five years," Natasha said.
"You didn't get stuck in there for five years, did you?" Evelyn asked. Everyone's attention turned towards the female in question, and Scott shook his head to answer her. "For you it would've been, maybe, a few days? Hours? Am I right?"
"Yeah," Scott nodded. "See, the rules of the Quantum Realm aren't like they are up here. Everything is unpredictable. Is that anybody's sandwich? I'm starving."
He quickly hurried towards the coffee table in front of Evelyn and Estelle where Natasha's sandwich resided. He quickly began to eat it. "Scott, what are you talking about?" Steve asked.
