;hey guys long time no update huh? and Im almost out of school! as always I own nothing but the plot and OC's;

Winter time in Central Park was the best time of the year.

No teenagers randomly laying out on the open fields, not as many street venders due to the cold weather, and no annoying dogs to leave messes for you to step in.

Nope. Just more space for kids to run around in.

Kat fell back-first into the snow and started making a snow angel. When she was done, she carefully stood back up and hopped out of the dent she made in the snow.

"Looks good, kiddo." Jack said ruffling her bright red hair.

Kat smiled proudly. "Can we make a snow man next?" She asked. "Of course." He said setting down his staff and helping her roll out the large snowballs.

Kat heaved to get the torso on top of the base. Jack walked up behind her and sniggered. "Want some help?" he asked as she almost fell over. "No I got it." Kat huffed lifting the large snowball above her head.

Jack stood behind the 6 year old and pushed the snowball onto the base without her noticing. "See! I told you I could do it!" Katherine said proudly while looking up at Jack. He grinned and ruffled her hair again. "Of course you could. I never doubted you."

Kat picked up the head. "But you need help with this one." Jack said picking her up from under her arm pits. The six year old squeaked in surprise then giggled as Jack lifted her up so she could place the head on.

Kat picked up two grey rocks and jogged back over to Jack who was compacting the snowman together. "These will be the eyes." She said holding them up for Jack to see.

"Great choice." He said grinning. "I take you want to put them on?" Kat nodded. He shook his head smirking and picked her up again.

After a few minutes, Katherine and Jack finished the snowman. They had found two random sticks for hands and found more rocks for his mouth. They stood a good distance away looking at it proudly.

"Good job, kiddo." He said ruffling her hair. She giggled.

"Hey, how about we go have a snowball fight with those kids over there?" Jack asked pointing his staff at the large group of boys that where a little older than Kat.

The six year old suddenly looked uncomfortable and hugged Jack's leg while shaking her head.

The winter spirit looked down at her surprised. Kat hasn't ever been shy before.

"What's wrong, kiddo?" He asked squatting down to her level. Kat looked at the kids uncomfortably. "I don't wanna play with them." She mumbled.

"Why not?" He asked. "They'll make fun of me." She replied. "What?" Jack asked taken back. "Why would they make fun of you?"

"Their the boys in my class that make fun of me because I don't have a mommy and daddy." She mumbled looking away from the kids. "I don't wanna play with them."

Jack looked at the group of kids then back at Kat. Her moss green eyes where practically begging him not to make her go over there.

He smiled a little and ruffled her hair. "Alright. You won't play have to play with them." He said standing up. "Can we go home now? I'm cold." Kat said giving him a puppy dog pout and rubbing her arms.

"Yeah, let's go find your Uncle." Jack said taking Kat's hand and leading her to the groups of adults eating lunch.

XXXXXXThe Next dayXXXXXXXXX

Jack flew up to Stark towers window. He had spent the night making fresh snow all over the city and was ready for another snow day with Kat.

"No! No! No! No!" He heard Kat's high pitched voice scream.

The six year old sprinted into the kitchen in her pajamas followed by Pepper who was carrying a small bottle and a spoon.

"Katherine Maria Peterson! Get back here now!" She yelled. "No!" Kat yelled running into the kitchen. "Katherine you have a 101 degree temperature! You have to take your medicine!" Pepper yelled running around the kitchen counter after her.

"No! No! No! No!" Kat yelled sprinting into the living room. Pepper stopped running and sighed with annoyance.

"Tony!" Pepper yelled angrily. When he didn't reply she sighed with annoyance. "JARVIS! Tell Tony to come up from his lab!" Pepper said.

"No! Don't get him JARVIS!" Katherine yelled jumping out of Pepper's sight and running away.

Jack flew after Katherine outside the window. He finally caught up to her and knocked on the on the glass to get her attention. Kat skidded to a stop and threw the window open.

"Jack! Hide me!" The 6 year old panicked grabbing his hand. "Pepper is making me take medicine!" She suddenly sneezed into her elbow.

Jack raised his eyebrow and smirked a little. "Do you have a temperature?" He asked squatting down to Kat's level. She chewed her lip nervously. "No..." She lied giving him sad puppy dog eyes.

"Really?" Jack smirked. "That isn't what Pepper said a few minutes ago, Miss.101 degrees."

"I don't want to take Medicine!" Kat whined. "It tastes gross and its icky!" Jack smiled and shook his head. Typical kids.

"I'll make you a deal." he said scratching his chin. "If you take your medicine and listen to Pepper I'll tell you another story."

Kat didn't look amused. She crossed her arms and pouted. "I don't wanna." She said shaking her head.

"We can build another fort." He added raising his eyebrows.

Kat's jaw twitched but she continued to pout. Jack rubbed his hands together. "Hard one to convince, huh?" He said grinning. "Alright... What if I took you to see the Sandman at work?"

Kat gave up trying to keep her pout and looked at him wide-eyed.

"You can do that?" She asked. He nodded. "But only if you take your medicine." Jack replied wagging a finger.

Kat chewed her lip. "Fine..." She moaned walking back into the kitchen.

XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX

"Kat... Kat... Come on." Jack said lightly shaking the 6 year old.

She groaned before she was actually awake. "W-what?" Kat asked. "Come on, the Sandman remember?" He said leading the way out of the fort. She crawled out and yawned.

Kat hopped onto Jack's back and he flew her to the top of Stark tower. "What? I thought we were going to see the Sandman!" Kat exclaimed when Jack put her down. "I said see him at work." He replied pointing at the sky.

Katherine looked up and felt her jaw drop.

Large golden streams of sand quietly flew down to New York and into random windows of the homes. One stream branched off the went just near the top of Stark tower. Kat ran just below it and stuck her hand through the sand.

It instantly swirled down her hand and formed a dolphin. It spun around her and did several flips while she laughed.

"If only dream sand worked on you." Jack thought walking up behind Kat.

"Definitely worth taking medicine, am I right?" He asked as they watched the dream sand go to work.

Kat nodded and her eyelids started to grow heavy. She leaned against Jack tiredly and yawned.

"C'mon, kiddo." He said while scooping Kat up in his arms and heading back down. "It's 4 hours past your bedtime."
