Steve had an early morning to work out before breakfast. It was a lazy day for him since it was his day off. He’d put in a load of laundry and had lunch. Now he had settled in for the afternoon with his book perfectly content to stay in the Tower, minding his own business.
He looked up from “Around the World in 80 Days” to see Toni come up to him. He blinked a second and put his bookmark in place, “Do I own a suit… yes for press events… why?” He asked suspiciously.
Toni sat beside him, offering him an overly sweet smile as if that would convince him to take her offer. At Steve’s suspicious tone, though, she let out a mildly offended huff and leaned back. “I got this… Thing.”
She stared at him and pursed her lips. “There’s a fundraiser tonight. Pepper’s not around and if I go alone I’ll end up so bored I’ll probably stick an ice picker in my eye. So… I was thinking you could be my dashing date tonight?”
Steve chuckled when she said she had a thing, knowing exactly where it was going. “You want me to be your dashing date?” He paused and pretended to contemplate the idea and acted like he was about to say no before shrugging, “Sure why not… I haven’t really been out in awhile though… You sure I won’t cramp your style?”
