Chapter 1: Baby Sitting
Baby sitting, Tony couldn't believe that he'd got stuck babysitting. When Osborne had called him and told him to fly to NY right away that they needed to discuss urgent matters Tony somehow didn't think that he was going to be stuck babysitting. But in the interest of achieving a future partnership with Oscorp he had to comply with all of Normans demands no matter how old they were. What was this kid four years old looking up at him with his head cocked to the side as though asking him 'What do we do now'.
Tony had no idea what to do next and he couldn't even hand the kid over to Pepper she had taken a personal day to attend to some family crisis or whatever Tony wasn't really listening to her when she told him. He sighed softly to himself before finally addressing the boy standing in front of him. "So what's your name kid?" he asked
"My names Peter, Peter Parker" he said before his face twisted to an indignant expression "And I'm not a kid I'm going to be nine in two months" he stated matter o factly.
"Whatever, look" Tony said in an uninterested tone "I'm going to take you back to my house for a few hours until Osborne comes to pick you up and take you back to your uncle" he informed the young boy as he ushered him onto his private jet.
The plane ride was silent as Peter conked out within the first thirty seconds of boarding the flight, he was woken up not much later by Tony softly tapping him on the shoulder and telling him they had arrived. The first thing Peter realized was that he was no longer in the plane but rather he found himself in a car in front of a large house on the beach.
Peters mouth dropped open his eyes wide as saucers as he looked at the mansion before him, he always thought that Harry's house was huge but the Osborne's mansion had nothing on Tony. As soon as the door was open Peter immediately ran into the house exploring all of the expensive things he'd never had a real chance to be exposed to before. He touched anything he could get his hands save for the few things that Tony had told him were very expensive and priceless so he was not allowed to touch them.
It didn't take long for Peter's excitement to die down which much to Toni's horror had only happened within the first fifteen minutes of his entering his home. Then Peter looked up at him with that same expression he had before only this time he voiced his opinion. "I'm bored what do I do now?" he asked.
"I don't know I've never been in charge of a kid before" Tony stated bluntly, Peter merely rolled his eyes and continued looking at him with that same expression on his face except this time his blue eyes were tinted with annoyance.
Tony could tell that Peter was losing his patience fast, but what was he supposed to do he had no games or anything. He looked around the room for something to occupy the boy's obviously short attention span. Until he spotted a dry erase board and a marker. He walked over to them a handed them to Peter with a simple "Here kid go nuts"
Peter took the board and marker over to the glass table in front of him and began writing what Tony could only assume was some kid gibberish seeing as how the second Peters back was turn he immediately went down to his lab to continuing working on another project. It didn't take Tony long to realize just how wrong it was to leave an eight year old upstairs alone in his house at the many different hazardous things around up there, in his defense he hadn't designed the house for entertain kids. So with a sheet of paper containing many different equations and what not in his hands he made his way back upstairs.
He sat down next to Peter not even sparing the boy a passing glance and immediately when to work on the long string of complicated equations that was set out before him. He worked the problems again and again and again but couldn't figure out what was wrong with it; he knew something was wrong for sure he just couldn't figure out what. "This doesn't make any sense" he cried out in frustrations startling Peter causing the small boy jumped out of his chair, Tony had completely forgotten he was still there.
Peter set down his marker and looked at the different sheets of paper set out before him before turning to tony and simply saying "That's because your math is wrong".
"I know that it's wrong but I don't know what is wrong" he snapped annoyed that the little boy before him decided to mock him by saying things that he already knew. "I've reworked these numbers a hundred different times but it just keeps coming out wrong"
Peter looked down at the math for a good thirty seconds before saying in an apathetic tone "The 65th digit of pi isn't seven its nine" Tony stared at him for a while before turning back to the long string of numbers he had substituted into the equation and realized that Peter was right. "Oh the answers sixteen" he heard the smaller boy muse softly causing him to turn his attention to the white board he'd given the boy moments ago.
There was a string of complicated equations random mathematical symbols things he hadn't seen until at least his freshman year in college stuff that a mere eight year old little boy solved seconds ago, an eight year old little boy that also managed to corrected his math. He continued to stare for a moment as Peter erased the board and set another problem up smiling and humming a tuneless song as though what had just transpired was completely normal thing that average eight year olds do.
"How did you know the 65th digit of pi, how are you solving those math problems" Tony finally choked out after he recovering from most his initial shock.
Peter merely shrugged his shoulders as though it wasn't a big deal "I don't know, math has always been easy for me I guess I can understand certain information faster than others" was the only explanation that he offered Tony. Who continued to stare at the boy in shock at the simple explanation he had offered him it couldn't have been that simple sure he'd heard of many people being geniuses hell he was one himself but this was just ridiculous.
He tore the board and marker out of Peters hands earning a small hey in protest and began jotting down one of the hardest equations he could think of before handing it back to Peter "Here solve this" he instructed before getting up to go the counter and retrieve a scientific calculator. But upon his return Peter offered him the solved equation looking up at him expectantly asking for another. The rest of the day was spent much of the same until Tony was forced to take Peter back to NY but not before making arrangements for another visit from Peter.
A/N: I personally have no idea whether or not I will be updating this story I really only wrote this because there aren't enough Tony/Peter fics out there so if you like this fic please tell me before I officially attach a discontinued sign on here.
