Chapter 8: The P Word

Needless to say something screwed up the rescue. It was Odin. He knocked Steve out and chained him to a wall. On the other side of the room from where my cage was. He said something like 'He may be my adopted but he's still important...' and then I stopped listening.

Loki had woken when I was asleep apparently. When I woke up he wasn't where Steve had left him.

I still hadn't figured out a way to tell Steve that I was pregnant. And Tony didn't help at all.

Steve stirred, "Shelby, why didn't you wake me up? I want coffee."

Wow, he must be REALLY out of it if he thinks he's at home right now.

"Steve, I'm on the other side of the room. And you're chained to a freaking wall, why would you think you're at home?"

"No reason..." Steve mumbled. He was still groggy. Like MAJORLY groggy. "My head hurts."

"I wonder why..." I mumbled

The wall blasted open. Where the blast was, was a man in full metal suit. Tony.

"Tony, why can't you ever take the door?" Steve asked

"Cause it's more fun blowing stuff up." I couldn't see Tony's face but I'm pretty sure that he was smirking. They do not get along very well.

He walked up to me, the mask peeled off his face, "Are you okay?"

"Yeah. I'm fine."

"Are you BOTH okay?" Tony whispered, motioning to my stomach

"Oh, yup. We're good."

"Okay, well, I'm gonna go help Steve. And then we'll be back." He said. He whispered the next part, "Best keep you sitting until you actually HAVE to get up."

I nodded. "Okay."

Tony walked over to Steve. He started un-cuffing Steve. Steve was luckier then that wall, in a sense that Tony didn't have to blast his hands off to take the cuffs off.

The two walked over to me. Tony lifted his arm up, Steve grabbed it. "You are not blowing my wife up."

"Better than knocking your wife up." Tony mumbled

"What?" Steve asked

Tony looked at me. I shook my head. 'don't tell' I mouthed.

"Oh... Nothing." Tony said

Steve gave him a look but Tony just smiled innocently.

"So are you guys going to get me out of here? Or are you just going to argue some more?"

They both looked at me. Tony blasted the lock off. Steve was worried about nothing. Tony wasn't going to hurt me... on purpose.

I jumped out of the cage, a wave of dizziness came over me. I grabbed onto Steve's shoulder for balance. I looked at Tony. 'It's all normal' he mouthed. This is not going to be a good nine months. For me, and everyone around me.


We are home now. While we were getting back from Asgard I threw up, almost passed out from fatigue, and felt like the place was spinning because of the dizziness. All because of the bun in the oven. I swear everything seems to be getting harder! Especially putting pants on. Everything's bloating, swelling and expanding everywhere.

So neither Tony nor I has told Steve about the kid. I still don't know how to tell him. I'm thinking that I'll just get Tony to tell him, cause I'm a chicken.
