The Bonds Made

Chapter Text

It was late, but Steve couldn’t sleep. Tomorrow was the big day. They were getting married. He sat alone in the master bedroom. Tony was out on his bachelor party. It would be a few more hours till the alpha returned. He trusted Rhodes to get the alpha back in time for the wedding. Rhodes was well aware of the risks if he failed to do so.

Resting by the side of his bed was his shield. When his alpha was gone he wanted it near. He knew it didn’t need, but it was a security. Steve looked up from his book when he heard someone enter the mansion. He went for his shield.

"Easy,"

"Tony?"

Steve relaxed when Tony entered the room.

Tony got into bed with him, resting his head on his stomach. The alpha purred, causing him to as well. Steve put down the baby book, marking the page. He ran his fingers through Tony's hair.

“Didn’t expect you home so soon,”

“Wanted to be here,”

"You wanted to be with your pregnant fiancé instead of your bachelor party,”

“Much rather,”

Steve smiled.

“Won’t they notice if you’re gone?”

“No,”

“It’s nice to have you there,”

“I’m turning into an old man,” he said.

Steve laughed.

“Says the forty-two year to the ninety-four-year-old,"

Tony moved his hand to Steve’s stomach. The omega finally started showing. (July 28. 98 days). Steve's core muscles softened and a small bump could be seen.

"How big is it now?” asked Tony.

“About the size of a lemon,” said Steve.

“Have you felt anything yet?”

“It will be a little while longer,” he said.

Tony kissed Steve's stomach before getting out of bed. He threw on a pair of pajama pants and a band t-shirt.

“I thought you’d be asleep,” said Tony.

“Can’t,”

“Morning sickness?”

“No, excited for tomorrow,”

Steve yawned feeling more relaxed now that his mate was home. Tony pulled him close. The alpha spooned him.

“You better be here when I wake up,”

“Where else would I go?”

Tony nuzzled his neck easing him into sleep. Steve groan when his alarm forced him from his sleep. His face was plastered to the pillows. He slowly raised his head. Tony was working on a project.

“Morning,”

The smell of coffee woke him up slightly. Tony handed him a mug. It took a sip, taking a moment to savor it. Even though caffeine in such low doses did nothing for him the smell still had the effect. (July 29, 99 days)

“Today is the big day,”

Steve smiled.

“We’re getting married,”

“We are,”

Tony kissed him. He glanced at the clock. It’s already eight. Steve shot from the bed. Outside staff was already were getting the yard ready for the wedding.

“I set my alarm for six,”

“And I reset it to eight,”

“Why?”

“Wanted you to be well rested,” said Tony.

“And what about you?”

“I’d be more worried about Rhodey than me,” said Tony.

“He better be here in his dress uniform at noon,” said Steve.

“I’m sure he’ll be here,” said Tony.

Steve showered quickly toweling dry his hair. He stopped in front of the mirror. He ran his fingers over the small bump. It wouldn’t be much longer until they knew the gender. After their honeymoon, Bruce would reveal what he learned from the samples they sent. Tony hugged him from behind. The alpha had been all over him since he started showing. Tony started licking his neck.

“I’m not in the mood, Tony,”

The last time he pushed Steve a little too far when he wasn't in the mood he was literally thrown out of the room.

"I just hope what Banner has to say doesn't bring an end the joy of this moment," said Steve.

“He has nothing bad to say,” said Tony.

“How do you know?” asked Steve asked.

“He would have told us earlier if he found something concerning,” he said.

“Any word on if he’s coming?”

“None yet,”

“Sir Rhodes is here,” said Jarvis.

Rhodes walked into a room filled with presents. Steve and Tony were at the center of the room.

“What is all this stuff?” asked Rhodes.

“Wedding gifts. They’ve been coming all week. Don't know what we're going to do with all of it,” said Steve.

Rhodes picked up a random gift.

“This one is from Queen of England,”

"I think we got a present from almost every national leader," said Steve.

“How many thank you letters do you have?”

“Jarvis what’s the count so far,”

“Over a thousand. Even senator Stern sent you gift despite not being invited, but it’s addressed to Steve,”

“We’ll throw that one away,” said Tony.

“You’ve got to get on better terms with him,” said Rhodes.

“Why? He won’t win reelection,” said Tony.

“You said that last time,” he said.

“He rigged the thing,” said Tony.

“Do you have any proof?” said Rhodes.

“Not yet,” he said.

There was a boom of thunder. The clouds started to gray.

"I thought it was supposed to be sunny," said Rhodes.

“It was,” said Steve.

His nerves quickly calmed when he saw figure soaring down from the sky.

“It’s only, Thor,”

The demigod burst into the room without hesitation.

“Congratulations my friends. You are glowing, Steve with parenthood,” said Thor.

"Thanks, Thor,"

Steve grew uncomfortable at Thor’s focus on his stomach. Tony was quick to move in front of him.

“What are you staring at, Fabio?”

“You have a little warrior in the making. Do wish me to tell you the gender?” asked Thor.

“How would you know that?” asked Tony.

“I’m also the god of fertility. Blessed several a maiden with child in my youth,” said Thor proudly.

Tony rolled his eyes.

"So there's someone walking around with latent Asgardian DNA,” said Tony.

“It’s diluted though,”

“So what are we having?” asked Steve.

“It’s a-

“No,”

“Why not?” asked Steve.

“There a fifty percent chance that he’ll get right. What the point?”

“I’ve never been wrong. Do you wish it to be a surprise?” asked Thor.

“I rather trust in something more reliable than magic,” said Tony.

“You mean your science,” said Thor.

“Exactly,” said Tony.

"On my world, they're one in the same," said Thor.

Tony rolled his eyes.

"We'll wait and find out," said Steve.

"I brought a gift to celebrate your union and one for the child since I may not be there to celebrate its birth," said Thor.

Thor handed Steve a deep red blanket rolled neatly with a black ribbon. Steve untied it. Woven into the center of the blanket was a large golden symbol.

“It’s a shield knot in the colors of your alpha's armor. It's a symbol of protection in my culture," said Thor.

“This is beautiful. Thank you, Thor,”

“And this is for the pup,” he said.

Thor took out a small box from his bag. From it, he took a silver sphere. He pressed a button on the top. The sphere fell apart and floated into the air. The pieces took on the shape of a tree. Little birds flew around as it slowly twirled. As it moved a lullaby started playing.

“What is this?” asked Steve.

“It a child’s carcel. Hopefully, it proves soothing to the pup,” said Thor.

Thor hit a button on the bottom and the gift took on its original shape. Steve returned it to the box. He knew Tony was itching to take it apart. Steve carefully folded the blanket, setting on the counter. He ran his hand over the soft fabric. Steve was fighting the urge the immediately take it to his nesting chair. He tapped his fingers to the counter. Steve snatched it off the counter leaving to put it in his nesting chair.

“Where he going?” asked Rhodes.

“To add it to his nest,” said Tony.

Thor smiled.

“I’m glad it met his approval,” he said.

The demigod finally took notice of Rhodes.

“I’m Thor,”

“Yeah, I got that. James Rhodes,” he said.

“Nice to meet you,” said Thor.

Soon there was only an hour left till the wedding. Guests were wondering around the ceremony area. Tony and others were dressed and ready. Natasha and Clint arrived at the same time. She wore a deep blue dress that matched the theme of the wedding. Steve asked her and Clint to be groomsmen. Neither held the title of best woman or man. That honor belonged to Bucky.

“Thor, Jane is waiting for you,” said Clint.

Thor left to greet his date. He hadn’t seen her in so long.

“Where’s Steve?” asked Natasha.

“Bedroom,” said Tony.

Natasha let herself into the room. Steve was in his dress uniform. The jacket laid next to him. He sat at the end of the bed polishing his shoes.

“How are you feeling?” she asked.

“I’m happy, but the moment is bittersweet,” he said.

“If you’re having cold feet I can plan an escape route,” said Natasha.

"No, cold feet. I only wish there were some people still here to see this," said Steve.

She went to the window. Part of her was tempted to say those he lost were watching down on him, but that would be a lie. She'd never believed in such things. Below she two flower girls sitting excitedly by the entrance. Neither of the girls had hair and looked rather sickly.

“Who are your flower girls?” she asked.

“Olivia and Isabella. The Make A Wish Foundation sent me their wishes. They wanted to be flowers girls. I couldn’t say no. This means so much to them. That makes this day all the more special, knowing Tony and I could do this for them and their families,” said Steve.

He checked himself in the mirror. His pants snug around his waist.

“No one will notice,”

She handed him his jacket. The medals on it chimed. From the bedroom, he saw everyone had been seated.

“This is your last chance to escape,” said Natasha.

“Not interested,” he said.

Steve watched as the flower girls trotted down the aisle, dropping petals. Natasha walked gracefully down after them. Clint was waiting for him at the entrance.

“What are you doing here?” asked Steve.

“Someone has to walk you down the aisle,” he said.

Steve hadn’t thought of that. The idea of walking down it alone with all those eyes on him was uncomfortable. Most of them were strangers to him.

“Ready to go?” asked Clint.

Steve nodded. They walked down the aisle military members stood attention saluting him. There were six two from each branch. All the eyes were focused on him faded from his attention. When he saw his mate at the other end aisle.

Tony smiled. It was like seeing him all over again for the first time. Nothing could make the omega more perfect to him.

“Who gives this omega away?”

“Clinton Francis Barton,”

Tony took Steve’s hands in his.

“You may be seated,” said the priest.

The audience took their seats. There was one empty seat in the front row dedicated to Bucky.

“Tony Stark and Steve Rogers have you come here to enter into marriage without coercion, freely and wholeheartedly?”

“I have,”

“I have,”

“Are you prepared, as you follow the path of marriage, to love and honor each other for as long as you both shall live?”

“I am,”

“I am,”

“May the Lord in his kindness strengthen the consent you have declared before the Church and graciously bring to fulfillment his blessings within you. What God has joined, let no one put asunder. Let us bless the Lord,”

“Thanks be to God,” said the audience.

“May I have the rings?”

Rhodes took them from his pocket, handing them to the priest.

“May the Lord bless these rings, which you shall give to each other as the sign of your and fidelity,”

They took the rings.

“Repeat after me,”

“With this ring I, Anthony Edward Stark, take you, Steven Grant Rogers, for my lawful husband, to have and to hold from this day forward, for better, for worse, for richer, for poorer, in sickness and in health, until death do us part. I will love and honor you all the days of my life,”

He slid the ring on Steve’s hand. Steve forced back the tears welling in his eyes.

"With this ring I, Steven Grant Rogers, take you Anthony Edward Stark, for my lawful husband to have and to hold from this day forward, for better, for worse, for richer, for poorer, in sickness and in health, until death do us part. I will love and honor you all the days of my life,"

“I declared you husband and husband. You may kiss,”

Tony wrapped his arm around Steve’s waist bringing him into a deep kiss. The crowd went into a cheer. They went down the archway of swords. The new couple took shelter inside the mansion. They didn't get much peace. While their guests were enjoying the cocktail hour they were doing wedding photos with the rest of the wedding party. When the photos were done they had a few minutes left before they had to go back out.

“How are you feeling?” asked Tony.

“Happy Tony very undeniably happy,”

“And the baby,”

“Good,”

They made their grand entrance the guests went into a cheer. Tony and Steve went to the dance floor. At Last started playing. The two started swaying together. Everything one else faded away as they danced. At the moment no one else mattered.

“I love you, Steve,”

“Love you too,”

They pulled away from each other once the song ended. Tony and Steve took their seats at the head table. Lunch was served. Rhodes stood up clinking his glasses. Tony sent him a warning glare.

“I’ve known Tony since we were pups. Today, I’m honored to be your best man today on this special day. And I honestly never thought I’d never see this day. I could tell you all the stories, but I am not. Congratulations, you couldn’t have married a nicer guy,” he said.

It was short and sweet, which was perfect. Steve took a small sip of the champagne, not wanting to risk suspicion. Once the meal was done. Steve got up went to Peggy.

“Do you want to dance?”

“I’ve waited seventy years for you to ask me that,” she said.

He lead her out on the dance floor. Steve was careful of his movements, not wishing to hurt her by treading on her toes.

“Steve, look at me,”

He looked into those gentle chocolate eyes. They were still as sharp as they were the first time he met her.

“I don’t want to step on your feet,” he said.

"I'm not made of glass and I'm leading," she said.

The song ended too soon. They were slow to pull away.

"And you said you were a bad dancer," said Peggy.

“Only because I had a good partner,” said Steve.

“Can I have the next dance?” asked Tony.

“I’d be honored to, Anthony,” she said.

Steve's next dance was with Rhodes.

"Thanks for keeping your best man speech civil," he said.

"I didn't want risk getting on your bad side. And I truly am happy for the two of you," said Rhodes.

The music was faster paced, but Steve managed to keep along. Everyone wanted to dance with him. He danced with several previous presidents. President Obama wasn’t able to attend, but his wife and daughters were. Tony managed to pull away from the crowd and get to him.

“I’m fine,”

Steve’s attention was broken from Tony, when he saw Pepper and Agent Hill dancing together, smiling. Pepper was blushing.

“Steve, Tony,”

“Banner,”

“I’m sorry I’m late,” he said.

"We're just glad you could make it," said Steve.

“When would be a good time to talk?” asked Banner.

“Could it wait till after the honeymoon?” asked Tony.

“I would like to run over my results in an actual lab,”

“You’ll have Avengers Tower all to yourself,” said Tony.

Tony was pulled away again. Steve laughed when Natasha dragged Bruce onto the dancefloor. Banner was the only person who looked visibly more uncomfortable dancing than he did. Thor came to greet him.

"How does earth wedding compare to one of Asgard?” asked Steve.

“Very different from the last Midgardian wedding I witnessed. But at that time such events were more similar to weddings of Asgard,” said Thor.

“What are they in Asgard?” asked Steve.

“Our weddings last a week on average. A celebration of new bonds, love, family, and drinking. My parents' wedding lasted two the whole kingdom was invited,” said Thor.

“Sounds fun,”

“There’s nothing like an Asgardian wedding,”

“Maybe one day I’ll see one,” said Steve.

“I don’t think Lady Jane would appreciate such an event. Why are you celebrating the new union and not-

Steve dragged Thor onto the dance floor, shutting him up for the moment.

“Will your mate won’t mind me dancing with you?” asked Thor.

"I can decide who I wish to dance without his permission," said Steve.

“I apologize I did not mean to insult your independence it's a feature I find attractive in omegas. It's a tradition in Asgard for an alpha of any standing to ask for the honor of dancing with the alpha’s mate. Why wouldn’t you want to share such wondrous news?” said Thor.

“We aren’t ready for others to know just yet,” said Steve.

“The attention this world shows into other’s lives is odd. I don’t understand why reality TV is so popular,” said Thor.

“Neither do I,” he said.

The dance ended. Steve watched the motions of his wedding. It was a calm relaxed atmosphere it was exactly what he wanted. After the high tension and action of the recent months, this was perfect. Everyone one seemed to be enjoying themselves. From his seat he watched seat he watched the guests dance.

“Captain Rogers?”

“Yes,”

“I’m Prince Charles,” he said the alpha shaking his hand.

“It’s an honor to meet you,” said Steve.

He didn’t know the proper etiquette for meeting royalty. The only other person of royal descent of he'd met was Thor.

“The honor is all mine,”

The prince pulled a velvet box from his dress uniform.

“My mother Queen Elizabeth wanted to make sure you received this. She didn’t believe you would want the ceremony of a knighthood. And she sends her apologies for not being in attendance wedding. She truly wished to be here,” said Charles.

“Thank her for her consideration. This is a very thoughtful gesture. And I hope to one day thank her for it in person,” said Steve.

“I’m sure she’d be happy to host you,” said Charles.

“I look forward to it,” said Steve.

They talked for a few more minutes before moving on. Steve retreated to his seat again his feet were killing him. Thor took a seat beside him.

“I’m sorry for stepping on your toes,” said Thor.

“I didn’t do much better,” said Steve.

“You were very light on your feet,” said Thor.

Steve laughed.

“One day I will teach you the dance of Asgard,” said Thor.

“I think that’s better saved for Jane. She’ll enjoy it more,” said Steve.

His flower girls came running toward them.

“And what are your names little one?” asked Thor.

“I’m Isabella,”

“And I’m Oliva. We wonder if you two would dance with us,”

“I’d be honored,” said Thor, leading Isabella onto the dance floor.

“May I have this dance, Oliva?” asked Steve.

“Yes!”

Steve walked the little girl onto the dance floor. He let her stand on his toes as they danced.

“Steve,”

“Am I interrupting?”

“No, we’re done,” said Olivia.

“Tony,”

“Time to cut the cake,”

 

"It's a lemon cake,"

"What kind of cake is?" asked Olivia.
He followed after his mate. Thankfully, Tony made the smart decision of not smashing cake in his face. Tony licked the frosting from his fingers. Steve blushed turning away. Well-wishers followed them to the car. Tony sped out of the driveway.

“Was it what you wanted?” asked Tony.

“It was perfect, Tony,”

“Was it what you wanted?”

“We could get married in the parking lot of a McDonalds and it would be perfect because I would be marrying you,” he said.

Steve smiled.

"That has to be one of the cheesiest things you've ever said,"

“It’s true,”

Steve leaned over, kissing the alpha on the cheek. They were relieved when they got to the hotel. The hotel had gotten them a bottle of champagne. Their bags and clothes were already there. Among bag was Tony's Mark-6 suit. They’d only be staying here the day than leaving for their honeymoon tomorrow. Steve kicked off his shoes and unbuttoned his pants.

“That’s better,”

Tony chuckled.

“Let me help you get out those,”

"I've been on my feet all day the last thing on my mind is sex. Save it for the honeymoon,"

He paced the room, looking for danger. Paranoia and maternal instinct made it impossible not to follow. When he was sure it was safe he took a seat at the end of the bed. He took off his dress uniform. Tony hung it up for him and tossed him a pair of gym shorts. Steve pulled them on and fell back into the bed.

Tony went tossed off his clothes and changed into something more comfortable. He smiled when he saw his pregnant, six-foot, super soldier husband spread eagle on the bed. It was a beautiful image. He took a seat beside his mate.

“My face is sore from smiling,”

“None of the smiles I saw were fake,”

“There was no reason for them to be,”

He reached up and kissed his mate. His stomach growled. He’d hardly gotten anything to eat during the wedding. Everyone kept pulling him conversation after conversation.

“Hungry?”

Steve nodded.

"Two cheeseburgers with extra pickles, large fries, and two strawberry milkshakes,"

“That’s the most normal food request you’ve made in weeks,”

Tony called room service, placing the order. He joined Steve in bed. His curled up against his chest. He purred when Steve gently ran his fingers over the arc reactor. There was a knock on the door.

“Leave it outside,”

“Alright, sir,"

Tony got out of bed and wheeled in the cart. The smell of food woke Steve up. It didn’t take long for him to finish off the order. Once done, he settled down by his mate.
After that heavy meal, Steve would be out the rest of day. He hoped that morning sickness wouldn’t ruin the day. Tony ran his hand over Steve’s stomach. The touch instantly drew purr from the sleeping being.

“I can’t believe you’re mine,”

While his mate slept he worked on designs for future projects. He nearly broke out laughing when Steve let one rip. Tony failed to hold back his laughter, waking up his mate.

“Tony?”

His was laughing hysterically beside him.

“What are you laughing at?”

“Nothing, sweetheart,”

Steve was too tired to care. He burrowed under the blankets. Steve groaned when the phone rang. Before he could destroy the bothersome device Tony reached over him and hung it up.

“No reason to destroy hotel property,” said Tony.

"I wasn't going to throw it,"

“Really,”

Steve shoved his husband out of the bed. His husband. He started crying.

“Why are you crying?”

“You’re my husband,”

“So happy tears?”

Steve nodded.

“Almost had me worried,”

“I have no regrets about marrying you,”

“What do you want for breakfast?”

"Blueberry pancakes,"

“You shower and I’ll get that ordered,”

"Thank you, honey,"

Steve got into the shower. He quickly bathed and went out to rejoin his mate only wearing a towel lowly around his waist.

“Will you tell me where we’re going for our honeymoon?”

“It’s a surprise,”

“You know how a feel about those,”

“Trust me you’ll enjoy this,”

“How long is the flight?”

Tony tensed. The flight wouldn't be enjoyable for a pregnant omega no matter how long or short.

“Twenty hours,”

“You’re serious,”

Tony nodded.

"Will, that be a problem? I could always go with plan B or C,"

“Which are?”

“Paris or Amsterdam, but we wouldn’t be left alone there. I found a nice secluded place,”

But it also had Wi-Fi for him.

“Alright,”

Once breakfast was finished it was to the airstrip. For the first two hours, Steve was cranky and unable to get comfortable but eventually managed to fall asleep. Hopefully, his mate slept for the rest of the flight and he did. Steve gave him a death glare when he found he had to go on a boat.

It was night when they got there. Steve found there nearest bed and fell into it. He woke up early late the next morning. Outside he heard waves lapping gently against the shore. Tony had taken him to the beach.

He walked out into the living area. A large breakfast arrange had been put out. The fruit smelled amazing. Some fruits set out he’d never seen before. Tony handed him a bowl of fruit salad. He took a seat next to Tony finally taking a moment to admire the beach view in front of him. The sand was and the water was crystal clear.

“Where are we?” asked Steve.

“The Maldives,” said Tony.

“It’s beautiful,”

"Worth the twenty-hour flight?"

Steve nodded.

“How long are we here?”

“Five days,”

“Perfect,”

Steve settled beside him. Tony was drawn from his work. Steve’s purring was incessant. He took the bowl from Steve. The omega’s growl was soothed with a kiss. The taste of mango lingered on his lips. He ran his hands down Steve’s body. They fell back onto the couch.

His hands went to the omega hair, tilting his head back, deepening their kiss. He rocked his hips against Steve’s causing moan. Tony groped his mate’s rear causing him to gasp. The scent of their combined arousal flooded their senses. Tony broke the kiss. Those lust hazed blue eyes fluttered open. He slid his hand under Steve’s shorts. Slick leaked over his fingers.

“Bedroom,” gasped Steve.

Tony lead him to the privacy of their room. As the moved they stripped each other their clothes. He pushed his mate back into bed. The omega bared his neck in submission. Tony licked his lips. No one else has the right to see this. There sheer angelic beauty of his mate awaiting the pleasure only he could give. Steve spread his legs and whined.

“Alpha,”

He pushed a finger in. A tight wet heat surrounded the digit. Slowly he stretched Steve open. He watched the lustful expressions cross Steve’s face. Steve’s started making short mewling sounds. The omega flexed around his fingers trying to take them deeper. Each one more beautiful than the other as Steve grew more wanting.

“Want more?”

Steve snarled. He grabbed the alpha’s biceps and flipped them over, straddling his waist. In one hand he caught the alpha’s wrists. He sunk onto the alpha’s length into him.

“Fuck!”

His back arched finally being filled. He bit back a scream of pleasure.

"It isn't nice to tease, honey,"

He rocked his hips against the alpha, taking him at his own pace. Steve moaned as Tony pressed against his sweet spot. He tried to quicken the pace. Tony’s grip on his hips tightened. He yelped when Tony's teeth grazed against his skin.

“Alpha please,”

Tony flipped them, pinning his omega underneath him. He gave into his instinct claim, setting a brutal place, only slowly when the felt his omega contracting around him. He sunk his teeth into Steve’s neck right as they reached the release. Tony collapsed onto Steve. He slowly came out of the haze.

“Fuck, Steve are you alright?”

“Perfect,”

“You’re pregnant,”

“And?”

“Was I too rough?

“Like, I said Tony it was perfect,"

“But the baby,”

“It’s fine. I’m pregnant not made of glass,”

Steve got up. Tony groaned when he saw seed dripping down from between Steve’s legs. His mate had grown far more confident in bed. Mm, what fun they could have? He followed Steve open-air bathroom. High wall grantee no one would see his omega. He joined Steve under the spray.

“Are you sure it’s all right?” said Tony running his fingers over Steve’s stomach.

“Yes, Tony,”

The rest of their honeymoon passed peacefully with moments of intense passion. Steve spent most his on beach drawing beside Tony in a chair. It came to end all too soon, but he was ready to home, get his den order for the pup. (August 3, 104).

The flight home was hellish. Steve locked himself away in the bathroom. Tony didn’t dare disturb him. That bathroom now belonged to Steve. He took out his phone and pulled up the most recent stories. All the gossip magazines and several newspapers had his and Steve's wedding photos on the cover or front page. Steve came out of the bathroom.

Steve came out of the bathroom. Tony showed him his phone. It earned him a tired smile.

“We’re getting an album made,”

“Already in the making,”

They were both exhausted by the time they got to their California home. Everything was back in place. Banner was sitting in their kitchen. Steve gave him a small wave before curling up in his nesting couch.

Bruce returned to his guest bedroom. The appointment could wait until tomorrow. He did not want to test Steve in a potentially moody state.

The next day they had their appointment. Steve was still a bit jet lagged, but the excitement being able to know their baby’s gender and see it again woke him up. Edith, Bruce, Steve, and Tony stood in the small homemade medical office. Tony stood next to Steve, holding his hand.

“What did you find in the sample?” he asked.

"It was fascinating before we get to the pup. We should with what I discovered about Steve," said Bruce.

“Me?”

“You’re not just the end result of Project Rebirth, but you are it,” said Bruce.

“What does that mean?”

"I expected the child's DNA to reflect a hybrid of human and super soldier, but instead it's a full super soldier. It's your body's way of protecting and granting the survival of your pup. If the pup was only half I believe there would be a high chance miscarriage,” said Bruce.

Steve relaxed. This entire his body was working with him to protect his baby. It was probably the reason the pup survived the Battle of New York.

“Its DNA is also extremely adaptable. If it were reintroduced to serum the pup would absorb it strengthen itself. Steve, what you were shot with cause your birth control malfunction. I’m concern those responsible knew of this information,” said Bruce.

Steve tensed. Tony tried to sooth the distress leaking off him. He nosed against Tony’s neck, taking comfort in his scent.

“How would they know?”

“I don’t have that answer. If they did Steve they won't only be after the pup but you. To get best the effect they will catch while pregnant reintroduce. I don’t say this to scare, but to warn you of the threat,” said Bruce.

Steve regained control himself. Distress would do nothing but agitated his pup and trigger his morning sickness. They would have to prepare. Steve was worried about his husband.

“Why don’t we calm down and get a look at your baby?” said Edith.

Steve nodded.

“We’ll be able to get a 3-D image of your baby,”

Steve took off his shirt, laying back. He flinched as the cool gel was squirted onto his stomach. Edith turned the image. Unlike the ultrasound, Steve could see the developing face of his child.

“It's sucking its thumb,” said Edith.

“What are we having?” asked Steve.

“You’re having a little girl,”

“Shit,”

Steve snarled.

“Could you two give us a moment?” he said.

Edith and Bruce were quick to scatter.

“Shit, wasn’t the response I was hoping for when we discovered the gender of our pup," said Steve.

“It just slipped out,” said Tony.

“Would be the same be the same if I were having a boy?”

Tony took a seat with his head in his hands. The last thing he wanted to do was argue with his mate.

“I’m terrified,”

The fear seeped through their bond. Steve’s expression softened.

“You aren’t the only one. I’ll have to be constantly on guard,” he said.

“No, Steve it’s not only those threats. I’m worried for her. There’s a high chance of her being omega. Female omegas are the lowest on the societal food chain. How will the world respond to her having such strength? And she has the burden of having me as a father,” said Tony.

“I think you’ll be better at than you think,” said Steve.

“What makes you think that?” he asked.

“You already thinking of all this,” said Steve.

“That does mean I’ll be what she needs,” said Tony.

Steve took Tony’s hand in his.

“We’ll figure this out together,” said Steve.

They kissed softly.

“We could name her Sarah,” said Tony.

“I want to her to her own first name let her make something out of it,” said Steve.

Bruce sat in the kitchen with Edith. He’d expected more raised voice from Steve and Tony, but they seemed to have figured it out peaceful manner.

"You should have noticed that in the sample," said Bruce.
