Tony Stark Imagine (5)
~hint of #ironstrange
A couple of weeks had passed since you and Tony spoke. Everything seemed fine between you two, and both of you spoke to each other as if nothing had happened. However, there are times where Tony would give you a fake smile just to act like he has moved on from you, even though deep down he knows he will never be able to.
Even if Tony has promise you to keep the drinking at minimum pace, he still can’t help to take a few sips here and there. He hasn’t had any blackouts from drinking since the day you spoke to him and make him promise, but he has had a few nights where he was pretty drunk and Rhodey had to take him back to his room. Or Stephen would only portal him on his bed whenever he wouldn’t cooperate with him. Sometimes Stephen would send in his cloak to help with him by wrapping itself around the mechanic and forcing him out of the garage and into his room. Tony knew he was breaking your promise, but he couldn’t stand being your friend and he couldn’t stand not calling you his own.
Luckily for him, Stephen made him sit down with him one day at the Sanctum when the billionaire visited him and made him speak. At first Tony just sat there with grumpy pout and his arms crossed in front of him, but with a slap to the head by the Cloak made start talking. Once he opened his mouth, he couldn’t make it stop, but Tony wasn’t going to lie when he mentally thanked the Sorcerer for making him talk. That’s why he always trusted him with everything and why he liked him because Stephen never let him be alone in his own thoughts or demons.
“Are you sure you weren’t a psychologist before?” Tony asks while sipping on his coffee and smirking against the foam cup when he sees the taller man chuckle,
“Never saw myself as one,”—
Tony snickers, “That I definitely don’t believe,”
Stephen smiles at him before getting serious with him and leans more into his chair, “You can’t keep doing this to yourself, you know that right?” Tony was staring into those piercing eyes but then drops them down to his cup and starts to let his finger circle the rim of the cup.
