(Before the wedding)
It was the day before Easter at Avengers mansion and everybody was getting ready for the big holiday. Lucy had everybody while she planned out a surprise Easter egg hunt.
She giggled to herself as she floated around the mansion checking on the progress her friend's were making. As she passed the Assembly Hall Thor turned to Panther who was leaning on the newly decorated table.
"T'Challa what is this Easter? And why do mortals celebrate it?" He inquired as Cap and Tony entered the room.
"To be honest with you Thor, I do not know myself. Let us ask our dear friends the Captain and Stark. Maybe they can shed some light on the subject." The two men turned to the two who had just entered.
They shared a look and Tony spoke," I don't know if this is just me but I think they're asking us why Easter is celebrated," When Cap followed after Lucy he sighed and began rubbing the back of his neck. He looked to the heavens for help then looked at his two friends and sighed," Easter is a time to rejoice. You see there was this guy named Jesus Christ who sacrificed his life to save people from their wrong doings by dying so our life would be restored. Then he rose from the dead on the third day, which is Easter Sunday."
The two men shared a look and Thor spoke," Truly he has not saved any mortal from their wrong doings."
Tony sighed," Well apparently he did." As he turned to walk away the two shared a grin and Panther spoke bold words.
"And how exactly do you know this?" His face turned into a grin as Tony turned around and Lacey entered the room.
"Because when we were old enough Melissa, Lucy and I used to drag him to church Sunday after Sunday. We still do in fact," She grinned as Lucy entered the room followed closely behind by Cap," We're all set upstairs. Everything is ready for tomorrow's egg hunt."
Lucy nodded as they followed the boys up the elevator," Great. Jarvis is already preparing tomorrow night's dinner and I called Pepper, Rodey and Jane Foster so everything is set. All we need to happen is tomorrow."
As the elevator door opened the girls were the first to exit," Sounds good to me. Hey wanna play some skee ball? I heard Tony's got a brand new machine up and running."
"Cool let's go." And with that the girls skipped down the hallway together. The boys shared a look and Tony shrugged.
"Not my problem."
"Yes but aren't they related to you?" Panther grinned as he, Tony and Cap went down one hallway while Thor took the one the girls had gone down.
He sighed," Don't remind me."
Hank had just finished cleaning up his lab when a knock came to his door. He looked up from his work only to find Jan leaning the doorway casually.
He sighed and stood up. He took off his goggles so he could see her," What do you want Jan?"
She smiled," Lucy wants to know if you'll host the Easter egg hunt that's happening tomorrow after breakfast." He sighed and grit his teeth.
"I'll do it but only because you asked me." She grinned, raced towards him, pecked him on the cheek then stopped in the doorway.
"Thanks, Hank!" And with that she left the room leaving a dazed Pym to wonder what he had just signed up for. He shrugged and continued to work new designs for Ultron.
The next morning
As soon as Alison Andre woke up she leapt up her sister's ladder and just was she was about to bounce on her she noticed that she wasn't there. She jumped off the bunk and was about to open the closet door when it opened, revealing Isabella.
She grinned looking at her sister," I figured you'd try to do that. Let's hurry up and have breakfast. Tony says after that we're going on the egg hunt with Carrie, Edmond and Clara around the mansion."
"Sounds like fun." She chimed skipping down the hallway after her sister as they exited their room.
Outside of Edmond/Carrie's room
The two were walking side by side, holding/swinging hands. They were laughing as they walked towards the cafeteria.
"So Edmond I hear there's this Easter egg hunt after breakfast. Would you like to go?" She asked as they entered the cafeteria. Their hands disconnected as they got their plates and filled them with food.
"Actually that does sound interesting. Yes I would like to go. Do you know if they're real eggs?" He said as they sat down and she giggled.
"No. They're plastic, like the TV screen or something." She continued to giggle as they ate.
Clara's high chair
The two year old sorceress was feeding herself in her high chair, which was next to Lucy. She looked around the room at the people smiling and couldn't help but smile too.
Today was the day Lucy had said the egg hunt was and that sounded nothing but fun.
As she finished her meal, which was puke like baby food, she tried to be patient as Lucy unstrapped her and allowed her to explore.
As everyone finished up breakfast Lucy lead them to the mansion gates carrying a holo keyboard. As things quieted down she cleared her throat and began.
"So I know everyone's exited about the Easter egg hunt happening today so I thought I'd explain a few rules before we began," She began typing on the holo keyboard and a blue holo map appeared with red dots," Ok does everyone see those red dots?" Everyone nodded," Those are places that are off limits or they don't have eggs so don't go looking for them there. This is not a competition so don't feel like you have to find a whole bunch of eggs because this is just an experiment. And lastly, absolutely no powers for anyone. I don't care if you saw an egg first and someone else took it. This is just for fun and anyone can participate," Thor and Panther shared a look," As for the younger ones your baskets are in the Foyer which is where the hunt starts. You may begin."
And with that the younger teammates, even Carrie and Edmond, raced into the mansion with determination on their faces. Lucy turned to grin at Hank who was standing next to Jan.
"And you didn't even have to do a thing." He rolled his eyes; most of the guys did, as Cap joined her side.
"And what do you propose we do while they're searching?" Thor inquired and she grinned.
"I figure we'll get ready for our guests." And with that the couple led the rest of the team back into the mansion.
A couple hours later
After everyone had found all the eggs, the guests had arrived and the team had dinner the kids got to pig out while the adults tried to watch and stomach it at the same time.
"I don't see how they can stuff their faces so much." Jane Foster commented sipping her coffee. Lucy nodded staring at Clara then towards her.
"I know what you mean. I remember my first Easter with my dad and step mom I could eat at least a pound of chocolate and now I can barely fit in ten medium sized pieces without feeling sick." Jane nodded and Pepper joined their table.
Jane left noticing Thor and Pepper turned to Lucy with a grim look on her face," You planned this behind Tony's back didn't you?" She nodded and Pepper rolled her eyes," What are we going to do with you?"
"Hey girls just wanna have fun," She looked down at the floor then at Pepper," Besides I want to have at least one more laugh before I'm a married woman. I want to go out with a bang not whimper."
Pepper rolled her eyes again," Sometimes I think you have too much fun in the irony of things."
"How could you tell?"
"Lucky guess." Pepper nodded and the kids continued to pig out at the table behind them.
Me: Well I know that was kind of short but I meant it was one-shot so I hope you liked it for all my fans! I also apologize for not posting for so long but because my mom "owns" the comp with the internet I can't update/post stories except maybe at school.
I hope you all had a great Easter and I apologize for throwing religion in your face if you don't believe what I believe but that is what Easter's about for me at least.
Anyways, I won't say anymore so you can review!
