A/N: This is set after Avengers: Endgame. Sorry if it's too short.
Christmastime had arrived in San Franscisco. The year had been crazy for Scott Lang. Or at least, it had technically been five years since Scott was trapped in the Quantum Realm. One thing he had to be thankful for was the fact that the Avengers successful reversed Thanos' actions. After how grim things seemed when he got out, everything in his world felt right.
Scott had spent the morning with Hope and Cassie. He was really thankful that his girlfriend and his daughter got along really well. Despite all the months had gone by, it was still strange to grasp how Cassie was suddenly five years older. The family dynamic between the three of them hadn't been diminished.
They had Christmas dinner with Hank and Janet. Paxton and Maggie were invited to as well. Hank liked to tease Scott about what his intentions were for Hope. Hope and Maggie helped Janet prepare the food. Around the table, there was plenty of happy chattering and everyone was in a cheerful mood.
That night, while Cassie was with Paxton and Maggie, Scott and Hope spent quality time at his place. Hope was spending more and more nights with Scott. They just sat comfortably on the couch. Hope laid her head on Scott's shoulder, while their fingers were entwined.
"Today's been a great day", said Scott.
"I can't disagree with you", replied Hope.
"And the best part is that I get to spend it with you", said Scott with a huge smile on his face. Hope giggled as she felt the same way. "Hank with never stop teasing me."
"Don't worry about him. He really is happy that I'm with someone who truly cares for me." She leaned up to kiss him. "Now, enough about my dad. Are you ready for your real gift, Mr. Lang?"
"Real gift? The watch you gave me wasn't it?"
"This is something special for a boy who's been very,very good", she said seductively. "I'll be waiting for you in your room." Hope laughed hard as Scott quickly ran after her.
