Tony looked down at the Infinity Battery stuck in his chest.
He poked it.
Nothing happened; he was a little disappointed. He reached over to the nearest screen, and pulled up a diagnostic check. Everything seemed to be working properly; the shrapnel was staying put and the energy output was normal. Tony breathed a sigh of relief.
He'd have to figure out a way to get the battery out, but that could wait. At least the gems were safe.

Somehow Pepper was straddling him now, and he had to admit that it was a little nice. "You look a little pale, Tony. Let me make you feel better." Oh, OK, Tony thought. That was- no. Pepper wouldn't want this, would she? But this was Pepper, and she clearly
