It was another warm sunny day and I was just down at the beach for a swim, as I wanted to cool off. The water was the perfect temperature and it felt wonderful against my skin as I swam around. I had been swimming for a while now and I had been watching these two people on the shore. One was a tall muscled man who was in a thin t-shirt with brown spiked hair and the other was a tall ginger haired woman who was in shorts and a t-shirt.
I had been watching them since they had arrived and I recognised the man slightly, but I couldn't think of his name. I was still watching them as I swam and I wondered who they were and why the man was wearing a t-shirt that had the name Stark on it. I swam further away from the shore as I went with the tide and I went to put my feet down on the sand but I couldn't feel it beneath my feet.
I didn't panic though as I knew how to swim and I knew that I could just swim back to shore. As I decided I would swim back to shore I started swimming but the tide kept pulling me back. I didn't know what to do as I tried to swim to the shore but failed and was pulled further away from the warm golden sand where people were. I was going to shout for help but how pathetic would I look?
I continued to try and swim but this time it wasn't the tide that stopped me; it was the huge wave that came crashing down over me. I instantly began to panic at this point as I struggled to get to the surface as another wave came over my head. My breath was instantly knocked out of me and my eyes were wide as I looked around and tried to get to the surface, but I couldn't tell up from down, from left to right anymore. I was panicking slightly as my heart pounded against my chest at an abnormally high speed. I could feel myself needing air and I looked around at my surroundings wondering where the surface was. At that moment I began kicking my legs forcing myself upwards and just as I broke the surface, I took a breath only to breathe in water as another wave crashed over my head sending me back under.
I could feel the panic inside me increasing rapidly as I tried to cough up the water only to breathe in more of the liquid in a final choking rush. The cold liquid went in to my lungs and I felt my throat burning as the liquid filled my lungs. I always thought drowning would be peaceful but it wasn't it was painful and then the blackness was coming for me.A ringing noise took over my hearing as I saw little grey dots dancing in front of my eyes. My vision was narrowing like a long tunnel, as the sides of my vision went grey and I was trying not to succumb to the blackness that was trying to take over me. Then as I felt the world cease to exist I lost consciousness knowing that no one was coming for me.
Everything was pitch black, I couldn't see anything and I was freezing cold as I felt coldness creeping under my skin. There was a dull pain in my chest and I could see a faint light getting further away from me, I didn't know what to do as it was though I was stuck inside a black hole. I wondered where I was as I felt something soft underneath me and I was trying to think when I distantly heard a voice.
"Breathe! Come on stay with me!"
I felt heavy pressure on my aching chest and I wished it would stop, I felt the need to breathe but that need was blocked, unable to draw in air. As the pressure on my chest ceased, I felt something cold dripping on to my face, I felt something warm but wet on my lips, I felt something tickling my upper lip, I felt pressure on my nose and I felt air being literally forced in to me. I felt the pressure return, but it was more intense than before, like it was persuading me to return. I heard more voices and I wished they would just let me sleep and rest.
"Pepper help me out here,"
"Okay, Tony move over,"
I felt the pressure on my chest stop and then I felt the warm sensation on my lips again. It seemed to linger there longer than before and I felt the need to cough. I couldn't move any part of my body and my eye lids felt so heavy.
"Come on don't do this!"
I felt the pressure on my chest again and I wanted to scream in pain, then the warm sensation was back. I coughed slightly and I felt the warm sensation disappear. I coughed harshly and I felt myself being turned on to my side as a strong large hand patted my back.
"That's it, cough it all up,"
"She's alive Tony and I honestly didn't know that you knew this sort of stuff,"
"I think she's coming to and why would you think that I wouldn't know first aid. How comes you know this stuff?"
"Well with you Tony, I never know when I'm gonna need to save your ass,"
Water spewed past my lips and I gasped in every sweet breath trying to get air in to my hurting lungs. When I had finished coughing, I was turned on to my back and I felt myself regaining consciousness. I groaned as my eye brows knitted together and as I blearily opened my stinging eyes. Every object blurred beyond familiarity, I blinked slowly a few times and the unfocused concerned face of a man filled my vision as he hovered over me.
It was the man from the beach and his brown hair was now soaking wet, his brown eyes were focused on me and he had a little smile on his face. He had a dark brown mustache and beard, and I noted to myself that he was very handsome as I watched drops of water fall from his face, then I sat up slowly with his help and I saw the ginger haired woman kneeling beside me.
"Are you alright?" The man asked.
I looked back at him to see he was completely soaking wet and his hand was on my shoulder as his eyes looked right in to mine. I wondered what had happened and I coughed again, clearing my throat. I recognised him from tv somehow but I still couldn't remember his name.
"I think so. What happened and even though I recognise you, who are you?" I asked, my voice rough and croaky.
"I'm pretty surprised you don't know who I am, after all I am Tony Stark. You're lucky that Pepper was watching the water otherwise you'd have drowned and you're lucky that we know first aid too," Tony replied as he pointed over at the ginger haired woman.
"Tony Stark... So aren't you Iron Man?" I asked.
"Yes I am, and I'm also a genius, a billionaire, a playboy and a philanthropist," Tony smiled.
I coughed up a bit of water as I coughed once again after trying to laugh and the woman Pepper instantly patted my back. It was strange that I had just met them, yet I felt safe with them around me, so I told them my name.
"Thanks," I coughed.
"'s alright," Pepper replied.
"Anyway thanks for saving my life," I said.
"No problem," Tony smiled.
"I guess I should be going," I told them.
"Alright but you be careful," Pepper said.
"I will. One last thing though, are you doing anything later Tony? I mean I just want to thank you by buying you dinner," I asked.
"Um... no I'm free later so I think I might take you up on that offer," Tony smirked.
Thanks for reading guys. I know this is kind of random and not really an Avengers fic but I thought I would write a fic were you could be in the story with Tony Stark and Pepper Potts. I hope you enjoyed this and I wrote this as I am madly in love with Robert Downey Jr. as he is just asdfghjk. Anyway please review as I love knowing what you guys think and the reviews are much appreciated :)
