(Events after Tony and Bruce rode off together in Tony's car)
The moment Tony arrived back to Stark Enterprise, a tear streak face Pepper Potts immediately ran straight into his arms. Tony wordless closed his arms around her and listen to her soft cries of relief while Bruce just watch the exchange and wasn't sure if he should. Tony gently broke the embrace and pointed to Bruce.
"Pepper meet Bruce. Bruce meet Pepper. That man screamed the life back into me" Tony winked at Bruce. Pepper smiled thankfully at Bruce. "And before that, he climbed and destroyed his way to catch me when I was falling" Tony recalled what Captain America explained to him what had happen when he "died". Thor added Hulk had also assisted him in fighting against the Chitauri and assisted him in going through walls at Grand Central station.
"Thank you" Pepper mouthed at him and went to hug Bruce. "Thank you for bringing him back to me" Pepper said quietly. Bruce wasn't really sure how to respond but just hug back. The reality the other him went through all that trouble to save Tony still silently shocked Bruce.
"The other him saved you" A flash back of Tony telling him that the Hulk was out looking after him. Maybe the Hulk heard and his own way repaid back Tony for his kind words. Tony in fact was the only person to ever say Hulk wasn't something to be destroyed, but a force that was useful and can be used for good.
More like thank you Tony Bruce thought to himself as the embrace ended and Pepper wiped away her tears and shot her hand to him.
"Pepper Potts, is nice to meet you Dr Banner" She said professionally. "I heard so much about you" Pepper looked at Tony and turn back to Bruce. "He gushed over your work like how the fan girls gush over him" Bruce laughed and Tony stalked over.
"Not true! I did not "fangirl" over Bruce." Tony denied. "I simply admired him" Pepper laughed and hugged Tony again.
"In fact, I admired him over here to help with the clean energy project" Tony added. "With two genius working on this, instead of just powering up Stark enterprise, we can power up Manhattan!"
While on the car ride over, Tony propose that Bruce be part of his company. He needed someone that was as just as smart as him and someone trust worthy to help him out. Bruce, still not sure about it was reassured by Tony that he would be working in a stress free environment (as in free no one but just them) and that if he wanted, whatever he earn can go to any charity Bruce desires.
"I'll give it a shot" Bruce conceded, the science part of him was dying to see Tony's equipment and the idea of being part of a project that only required his brain sounded wonderful.
"Oh Miss Pepper" Tony said. "Is that new intern in? Last I heard he was out sick, again"
"You mean Peter?" Pepper asked. "He said he might be back next week, something about a killer flu" Pepper rolled her eyes.
"Peter Parker is one our best interns here." Tony filled in Bruce as they walked into the building together. "The only problem, he's either late or out a lot due to sickness, death in family, his aunt May. Though I gotta hand it to the kid, his excuses gets more and more creative." As Tony kept going on and on about the genius intern, Bruce couldn't help but worry. Was his decision to stay a good idea?
(This will be a work in progress and I wanted to introduce Peter here but I want to see the new movie first in 3D no less. And I'm really happy my fics were well received and even one reader like Hulk more because my writing. That alone gave me a warm fuzzy feelings. So please any feed back are welcome and if anyone would like to be my beta reader, pm me :D)
