Chapter Twenty-one: Hulk saves the day


Cat's P.O.V.

My step-dad was dragging me out of the tower, and I could see some of my step-dad's friends dragging Josh and Poppy behind us.

"Oh, come on his legs hurt he can't walk," I exclaimed, as I tried to pull out of my step-dads grip.

Suddenly I felt the ground shake and I turned to see the hulk standing in front of us. My step-dad stopped walking, and I could hear someone drop to the ground.

"Ow what the hell man," Josh shouted.

I turned to see that the guys had dropped Josh. I pulled out of my step-dad's grip and ran over to Josh. I pulled Poppy out of the grip of the man who was holding her, and pulled her into my side.

"Are you okay?" I asked.

Josh and Poppy both nodded their heads. I turned back to look at the Hulk. He looked at me then Josh, then my step-dad, then back at me. I nodded my head.

"Yup that's my step-dad," I stated.

I could see Thor, and Iron man, who was holding onto Steve's arm, land on the ground behind Hulk. Hulk roared, and grabbed my step-dad.

"Hulk smash puny man," Hulk growled, slamming my step-dad into the ground.

Suddenly I heard gun fire, and I could see bullets bouncing off the Hulk. I turned to see some of my step-dad's friends firing at the Hulk. The Hulk roared again, and Steve, Iron man, and Thor all charged at the men firing on the Hulk, and after a couple of seconds they had taken all of them out. Tony raced over to Poppy and pulled her into a hug.

"Hulk I need my dad, he can help Josh," I exclaimed, looking up at the Hulk.

The Hulk grunted, and then he was shrinking back into my dad. After a couple of seconds my dad was running over to me.

"Are you okay?" He asked, holding up what was left of his pants up. I nodded my head.

"Yeah but Josh needs some help," I replied.

"I'm fine," Josh muttered.

"Yeah sure you are," I grumbled.

"All right Thor help Cat get Josh back into the tower. I'm going to go change, and then I'll take a look at your leg," Dad stated. Thor picked Josh up, and we walked back into the tower…


One hour later

I sat back on the couch and looked at the small cast around Josh's leg. Dad had just finished putting the cast on Josh, and he was now putting the first aid kit away, and Natasha and Clint had returned from taking that guy and my step-dad to S.H.I.E.L.D headquarters.

"Well aren't we a pair, what with me and my bad arm, and you with your bad leg," I exclaimed. He smiled.

"Oh yeah I've been meaning to take a look at your arm for some time now," Dad muttered walking over to me. He helped me out of my sling, and he pulled my shirt back slightly to look at the cut on my shoulder.

"It's healing nicely, you should be out of your sling in a couple of days," Dad stated, helping me put the sling back on.

"Yay," I shouted, pumping my good arm in the air. Dad laughed.

"So, what should we do now?" Tony asked. I thought for a second.

"Why don't we all watch a movie," I suggested.

"Did you have a movie in mind?" Dad asked. I nodded my head.

"I was thinking we could watch 'the Wizard of Oz'," I replied.

"Yeah sure why not," Tony muttered.

"I'll go get the movie," I exclaimed, running into my room.

I grabbed the movie and ran back out into the living room. Dad was getting the popcorn and everyone else was sitting on the couch waiting for me and dad. I popped the movie in, and sat down on the couch next Josh. Dad walked in with a bowl of popcorn and sat down next to me in the only open spot left on the couch. The movie started and everyone stopped talking. I love this, sitting here with my dad, and my boyfriend, and the rest of the team who'd become my family. I just wish that mom was still alive to be here with us. I rested my head on Josh's shoulder, and grabbed some popcorn…
