"Sir, there appears to be something at the door," JARVIS stated in his robotic voice. Tony furrowed his eyebrows.

"Well, what is it?" Tony asked the AI.

"I don't know, sir. But it doesn't seem to be a threat."

Tony stood up, cautiously making his way over to the door. Upon opening it, he could feel the cool night air. He peered around his front yard. Nothing seemed to be there. He glanced down and saw a small bundle. A small, chubby face stared up at him with brown eyes. A note was pinned to the thin blanket that surrounded the small child. Crouching down, Tony looked over the child and stared at the note. It was folded multiple times, and then pinned with a safety pin. Tony unpinned the note.

Take good care of her.

It was handwritten, and didn't have a signature of any kind. It also seemed rushed. He looked back down at the child. It… no, she seemed somewhat uncomfortable, wriggling around in the tight confines of the blanket. He reached down and loosened the blanket, and she freed a hand, reaching upwards, but looking past Tony. Tony looked up and saw only the dark sky, lit by the stars. There was no moon.

He looked back down at the girl. "You like the sky huh?"

The baby gurgled in delight.

"Well, uh, let's get you inside then," Tony said, picking up the child awkwardly. He walked inside with the child in his arms, closing the door with his foot.

He sat back down on the couch, the baby gurgling in delight in his arms. He read over the short message again.

"Where did you come from?" Tony, asked the child, rubbing his face with a hand. "Hey, JARVIS? Can you scan her?"

"Of course, sir." A pause. "She appears to be a direct child of yours, sir."

Tony sighed deeply. "Unbelievable."

The child became silent, and Tony looked down at her. "I guess if I'm going to keep you, I should name you."

He thought about how she reached for the sky before. The child looked directly into his eyes.

"JARVIS, what names have sky in them?" Tony asked the AI, looking up.

"There are not many names with 'sky'. Skylee, Skyler, Skylar, and Skye seem popular of the few out there," JARVIS responded.

Tony looked back at the child, going over the three names in his head. He rubbed his thumb along her forehead.

"Skylar Maria Stark."
