Son of Tony Stark and Pepper Potts. "Call me Rat."
"Ratty? You honestly think I care if shoes are ratty?" Dorthea raised a brow before shaking her head and throwing her heels across the room. "Any shoe is better than those ankle breakers, now, where do I find these mystical sounding converse?" She wiggle her eyes brows and pursed her lips trying not to laugh. "I didn’t buy them. My aunt and grandma did. They have a thing with being pretty and wearing proper clothing, and proper manners. And basically I was like a lab rat. Spoiled with things I don’t want."
"uh the store? And those heels are crazy high." He looked at the heels with distaste, making a face at them. "Why would they buy you stuff you hate? Didn’t you tell them that you hated them?" Sky didn’t get why she was forced to do stuff she didn’t want to do. It would be like living in a cage…..and that just absolutely sucks. "You can borrow my shoes if you want, but we would have to stuff it or something so that they fit your feet." This girl needed to go get something she was comfortable with.
Dorothea glimpsed down at the red heels she was wearing and groaned loudly. Heels were something she hated, but she didn’t have any other shoes to wear. “They’re like stilts. If you can run in stills you can enter the Olympics in hells.” Crouching down she undid the belt of them and slipped them off her feet. “You would have an extra pair of sneakers lying around would you? I have yet to replace my closet of heels with shoes I actually like.”
"Well they look uncomfortable. You should try converse." He lifted one leg to show off his shoe. "They’re really comfy and they’re unisex shoes. And they come in a lot of colors. I have one other pair, but they’re pretty ratty. We can go to the store or something and get you a new pair." Heels were from the devil, and without them on Doro looked much shorter. "Why do you have a lot of heels if you don’t like them? Doesn’t that kind of defeat the purpose of buying them?"
Audrey shrugged. “It was just sitting there. No one was eating it, so I decided to. It’s not like you can’t just buy more.” She said, casually leaning on the doorframe and rolling her eyes. “Anyway, haven’t you read the older sibling handbook, Sky? The more you tell me not to, the more likely it is I’ll actually keep doing it just to piss you off. Anyway, your locks are shit. You’re practically inviting me.” She added, taking a bite of the chocolate. As she chewed, her eyes wandered over the chemicals her little brother was using. “Maybe it’s a remanent of Extremis in your DNA, which causes you to ignite with certain applications of different substances, leaving only minimal burns depending on the intensity of the flame…” She wondered, trailing off as her thoughts spiralled. Maybe she could run some tests to see if that theory was correct. “So, whatcha doing with acid in the first place? I’m pretty sure mum wouldn’t be to happy if she found out.”
The theory about Extremis sounded awesome to him! Then he could be a super hero and have all the powers without needing a suit. “Well in the Younger Sibling Handbook it says to hate the older sibling(s) when they snoop.” He stuck his tongue out at her and continued working. “And I doubt that there was enough in mom to allow it to spread to me. Even if it did, would it not also effect you? Or maybe yours was divided due to Hally…. hrm…….” Now his thoughts were trailing off into possibilities and probabilities, when he needed to be focusing. “Because reasons. I wanna break stuff. And mum knows better, and she should know that this would happen. I already have a lot of burns.” To support his theory, he should the back of his hand. “I burned it yesterday making eggs. How do I keep doing that?!”
"Um, I’m not sure I entirely trust some dude I’ve just met well enough to fork over some of my blood…" Her face twisted into a confused expression and she held out her hand to show him her pathetically weakened powers. "This is about all I can do right now," She hated not having her powers, it made her feel weak and vulnerable, not that she was going to admit it to anyone, though.
Sky looked at the plasma coming from her hand, getting as close as he could without touching it. “How hot can it usually get? And psh when you feel like it give me some….no pressure for blood.” He brought a hand up to touch the flame, pulling back once he slightly burned his finger. “It’s hot, but not like AUGH HOT IMA DIEEE. more like match hot. It’s pretty…..useless.” The plasma was pretty cool though….and maybe…..Sky picked up the adamantium and held it our to Lauren. “Can you heat this up with your hand? The properties of the plasma should make for an interesting effect.” He smiled at her sweetly, trying to use all his ‘cute little brother’ charm he had.
"What’s wrong with blind people who can’t build bears?" Dorothea questioned as she raised a brow at Sky. "I don’t really care if you’re a prince or not to be honest," she shrugged, rocking back and forth on her heels. "But I’d love to be your friend. And go shopping with you."
"Nothing at all. And yaas let’s go shopping!" Sky hadn’t actually done something fun in a while. He still wasn’t sure what to make of this girl…but she seemed okay. Maybe he’d ask Audrey to check up on her….huh. "Hey question. How are you rocking in heels?! Aren’t they like hard to balance in?"
Dorothea couldn’t help but laugh at his words. Looking him up and down she laughed once more. “Comic books and Build-A-Bear. You can’t be serious. I’ve never been to Build-A-Bear in my whole entire life. Who said I wanted to go with you of all people when I could have a prince take me, huh?”
"The only fucking prince I’m even aware of is the blind guy. He can’t build a bear. Is it the dirty way I dress or the ripped shoes that tipped you off that I’m not royalty?" While he wasn’t royalty, Sky was probably richer than half of them. "come on, as a pal. Be my friend. or I can ask someone else."
"There is no ‘turn down’. It’s how I was raised. I’m either this geeky girl who knows to much, or this walking flirtatious girl that my relatives want me to be. ‘It’s the only way to marry a prince’," She mocked, shaking her head and rolling her eyes afterwards. "Than how about we do that, Comic Book shopping? It’s probably better than half the stuff girls do around here. Like dress shopping or Build-A-Bear?"
"huh. Suckish way to be raised. Okay what princes actually go to this school even?!" Sky didn’t think that anyone who was really royal here acted like it, well besides the girls at least. "Can we do both? Comic books and build a bear. Sounds like a party to me." He laughed, but honestly it actually sounded cool. He hadn’t been to build a bear since the ‘incident.’ "No thanks on the dresses though, I don’t have the legs for it."
"I should slap you." Dorothea said narrowing his eyes at her, "If I wanted attention I’d be running around showing off my hoochie and trying to hook-up with everything that breathes and moves. But since I’m not, I’m not looking for attention. I’m doing exactly what you said." With a sigh she shook her head, sliding her hands into her back pockets as she turned away. "I’m going to need a Rain Check. I don’t do movies and Comics with people when it’s not a date. Not everyday you find Mr. Perfect."
"Oh you meant you were doing the flirting! It came off as too much. You got to tone it down a bit you know." He nodded as he spoke, easily shaking off the unease he felt. "And comic books are the shit." Maybe she wasn’t as cool as he thought. She seemed to change personalities so much…and it was very disheartening. How odd. Maybe it was just him, or it wasn’t.
"Just fine huh?" She whispered, grabbing the rubber band holding back her hair, she pulled it out. Running her hand through her hair as she moved it back to the original way it was. Dorothea reached out, sticking three fingers in the hem of Sky’s pants, pulling him closer to her with a fake pouty face. "So does that mean I am guaranteed a first date?" She looked up at him through thick lashes and blinked them repeatedly. "I mean I know I can make it worth your wild. We can go comic book shopping, have a Marvel Movie Marathon." She bit down on the corner of her bottom lip, trying not to smile too wide. Looking down she frowned a bit, taking a step back, "Only if you wanted to though."
Oh….oh she was good. Sky may be dumb, but he was the youngest of three and the only boy. He’s seen his sister do this countless of times before, and he knew exactly what Doro was up to. He was way smarter than this. “Awe….little miss pouty face wants some attention does she? I am up for the comic books and the movie marathon, but not as a date missy. I still don’t know you well yet…and from this I know you’re a scheme.” He winked at her and gently removed her fingers from his pants. “I aint that easy….Toots.” He laughed and poked her shoulder.
"My flirty is something someone like you can’t handle especially if you can barely form a coherent sentence after I like you." She said with a sigh as she watch the paper slowly begin to burn. "Plus I don’t flirt until after the first date, but thanks for trying cutie." She offered him a quick smile before reaching over and snatching the equation from him.Trying her best to put out the fire already there. "You can’t have a protection program if you can’t be a girl in a wrestling match." Her eyes shot up and she glared at him for a few seconds, "I am no one’s side kick. We are equals.”
Sky snatched the equation back and tore it to shreds. “no one gets that equation. And I can handle your flirting just fine, just stop touching the paper.” He tore it to as tiny bits as he can, making sure that it was completely ruined. “You don’t have to be my sidekick if you listen to me on this okay? You can- you are my equal.” He smiled sweetly at her and began cleaning up, pushing the scraps into the sink and turning the water on. “Either way, the bulk of the equation was ruined with the burning. so it is pretty useless.”
