Freya walked down the hospital corridor to where Howard and Maria, his now wife, they had just had a kid. Freya walked in and saw the two looking at their baby, Freya knocked on the door and they looked at her "not interrupting anything, am I? I wanted to come meet the new addition to the Stark family." Freya said as she walked forward, Howard took the baby into his arms and Freya sat down as Howard passed the baby to her "he's called Anthony Edward Stark, but Tony is his nickname." Freya smiled at the baby boy, he was really adorable "he's beautiful, Maria." Freya looked up at the woman who smiled at her "you're going to make a great father, Howard." Freya handed Tony back to them, Howard then handed Tony to Maria as he wanted to talk with Freya outside. They stepped outside and Howard closed the door "I don't know if I'll be a great father, I have inventions to work on, I have all this work and S.H.I.E.L.D. too, will I be a great father?" Freya placed her hands on Howard's forearms "you might be at work alot, but that doesn't mean you don't love Tony. Even if you're not there all the time, it doesn't mean you don't love him." Howard nodded.

He looked at Freya "I do love him, so much. And everything that I do from now on, it's for him and Maria. It's for my family." Freya smiled at him "you've already adapted to being a dad." Howard smirked and nodded "this could've been us, you know?" Freya looked away with a sigh "Howard, I've told you why we couldn't have been together. I didn't want to watch you age and die, it's easier if I'm with someone who's aging lasts as long as mine. I mean I can still die, but it doesn't mean it stopped you aging." Howard nodded placing his hands in his pockets, Freya smiled at him "you know, even though you're older you haven't changed much. You're still the Howard that I fell in love with." Howard smiled at her "and you're still the Freya I fell in love with." Freya nodded before motioning to the hospital room "go be with you family." Freya said before she walked away leaving Howard with his new family.

Freya walked into Howard's Stark Industries Tower where she guessed is where him and his family lived, she followed Jarvis around the place until they got to Howard, Maria and Tony "Freya." Howard said standing up, Maria smiled at her. The little five year old Tony got up, he walked forward and Freya crouched down to his height "hi, I'm Tony Stark." Tony said holding his hand out, Freya smiled "I'm Freya Snow, I'm a friend of your parents." Tony smiled as Freya shook his hand "does that mean I can call you Aunt Freya just like I have my Aunt Peggy?" Freya smiled at the small boy "only if I get a hug." Tony hugged her and she smiled as she hugged him back before ending it and standing up "I know this is a bit of a shock, but I wanted to come and meet Tony and also say goodbye." Howard furrowed his eyebrows "goodbye?" Freya nodded walking forward and handing him a file "Maria, can you take Tony to the other room?" Maria took Tony and left the room "I'm leaving for a mission, I won't be back for a couple of years. Peggy's keeping in contact with me under the false name Anna Marie, I'll be undercover as Skye Martins. The reason I'm here is to get to know Tony before I leave." Freya explained as Howard looked through the file.

He handed it back to her and Freya placed it in the briefcase before Tony came back in while Howard and Maria left, Freya sat with Tony as he started showing her his little project "look, I'm inventing something, someday I want to be a genius. I want to make inventions and be famous for it. I want to change the world." Tony looked at Freya with joy and hope in his eyes, she smiled at him "and you will, someday you'll be changing the world. You'll be changing people's lives." Freya said smiling "Aunt Peggy's told me about you, I want to be like you when I'm older." Freya smiled and kissed his head "you can be whatever you want to be, don't let anyone hold you back from chasing your dreams." Tony smiled and hugged Freya she hugged him back looking over at Jarvis and Peggy now stood next to him. Freya ended the hug with Tony "hey, I have to go, I've got to go and change people's lives." Tony nodded "will you be back, Aunt Freya?" Freya smiled with a small nod "yes, I'll be back one day. Tony, can you do me a favour?" Freya asked the small boy nodded, she placed a metal snowflake with a blue jewel in the middle in his hand "look after this, one day I'll come back for it. Don't let your parents find it. Don't let anyone take it away from you. It'll keep you safe." Tony hugged Freya one last time and she kissed his head before getting up and leaving "it's sweet that you're looking out for Tony." Peggy said Freya looked at her "someone has to protect him from the dangers of this world." Was all that Freya said.
