Authors note: Okay so I've gotten a couple reviews about how Zina needs help with her powers, but I was basing her ability off of the time traveling ability that Henry DeTamble {played by Eric Bana} had in the movie 'The Time Travelers Wife', except she doesn't lose her clothes when she travels through time. So basically she won't be able to control her ability seeing as how Henry couldn't control his ability in the movie. Just thought I should let everyone know, hope you like the chapter.


Three weeks later

"Finally, girl's day," I shouted, getting into the car with Pepper, Nat, and Mikenna. Pepper chuckled, and Nat smirked.

"Yeah gives you a chance to get out of the house without your shadow," Nat stated. I scowled, and flopped my head back on the seat.

"Ugh I swear I think Thor's trying to turn me into his brothers personal… I don't know… guardian angel or something," I grumbled. I could hear Mikenna snicker next to me, and I heard a chuckle come from the front seat. For the past three weeks any time I left the tower Thor would corner me and ask me to take his brother with him. I didn't really mind helping the two of them out, but I haven't been able to leave the tower by myself for three weeks. I was starting to go nuts!

"Well a day at the spa should help you relax a bit," Pepper exclaimed. I smiled.

"I hope so, it's not bad enough that I travel through time with no control over where the heck I'm going, but I also have to deal with a couple of people who can barely be in the same room without killing each other, how do you two stand it?" I asked, looking towards Nat and Pepper. They both just shrugged their shoulders.

"Oh yeah that helps thanks, thanks, so much for your help," I mumbled. Mikenna was looking out the window trying to see if she could spot the spa.

"You excited to go to the spa?" I asked. She nodded her head, and smiled at me, then turned back to look out the window. A minute later we pulled up outside the spa, and we all walked in. Pepper walked over to the counter, and the lady at the counter smiled at her. They talk for a minute, then Pepper walked back over to us with the lady.

"Come with me and I'll show you to the private room you've reserved," The lady said, giving us a big smile. Mikenna grabbed my hand, and I followed behind Nat and Pepper…

Two hours later

"That was great we should do this every week," I exclaimed, sitting down on the couch. Everyone nodded their heads, and Mikenna sat down on the couch next to me.

"So I'm guessing you guys had a great girl's day," Stark stated, walking into the room with a drink in his hand.

"You'd be correct," I replied.

"I'm gonna go find Dawson," Mikenna exclaimed, jumping off the couch.

"Oh he's in the lab with Bruce," Stark shouted after her. I looked over at him.

"Stark please tell me they're not working on anything that could possible explode?" I asked.

"No Bruce is too responsible for that, now if it where me then we would defiantly be working on something that could explode," He replied.

"All right then you are never allowed to work on anything in the lab with my little brother, ever," I stated, getting up and walking into the kitchen.

"Oh no you can't tell me what to do," Stark shouted, following me into the kitchen. I turned and glared at him.

"I swear if you blow up my brother accident or not I will throw you off the top of this tower," I said, giving him my best death glare.

"Okay, okay fine I won't blow your brother up," He grumbled, raising his hands in defeat. I smiled, and grabbed an apple out of the fridge. Just then Thor, Dawson, and Mikenna came running into the room, with Loki walking behind them. Dawson and Mikenna dashed into the living room with Thor chasing after them. Loki just stood in the doorway of the kitchen and rolled his eyes.

"I thought they were in the lab with Bruce," I exclaimed.

"They were, but Thor went to the lab and asked them if they wished to play 'tag' with him," Loki explained, walking towards the living room. I followed after him, and found that Thor had grabbed both Dawson and Mikenna, and had them lifted up in the air.

"Oh please don't drop them," I mumbled, resting my head in my hand. I looked up when Mikenna squealed, and I saw Thor gently toss Mikenna and Dawson onto the couch.

"Again!" Mikenna squealed, pumping her fists in the air. I couldn't help but smile. She's never been like this before, she's always been so shy around new people but then again it has been three weeks since we moved here. I watched as Thor spun the two of them around, then plopped them down onto the couch. I smiled, and I couldn't help but think of me and my dad, and how dad used to do the same thing when I was Mikenna and Dawson's age. I turned and walked down the hall, heading for mine, Dawson, and Mikenna's room. I opened the door, and walked into the room. I plopped down on the bed, and closed my eyes. For the first time in years I wasn't worried about having to protect Dawson and Mikenna, or whether or not they'd have something to eat tonight. For once I could just sit down and relax and know that they'd be okay. I smiled, and curled up into a ball, and fell asleep…


"Mommieee!" I screamed, running into the house. Mom was just pulling out a pan of snowman shaped cookies out of the stove.

"Yeah Zina?" She replied, setting the tray down on the counter.

"When is dad gonna be home I wanna make a snowman with him?" I asked.

"He'll be home in a couple minutes," She answered, walking back over to the stove to get the other tray of cookies. I stood on the tips of my toes and tried to grab one of the cookies, but I was too short and mom smacked my hand away from the tray.

"Hey those just came out of the oven they're still hot," She scolded. I rubbed my hand.

"And besides those are for Santa remember," she added. I thought for a second then shrugged my shoulders. Suddenly the door opened, and dad walked in with a big bag in his hands.

"Daddy!" I shouted, running over and giving him a hug.

"Hey sweetie, how are you?" He asked, hugging me back. He passed the giant bag over to mom, who took a quick look in the bag, then looked over at dad, giving him a glare.

"What you didn't tell me she'd be in the kitchen," He grumbled.

"Why what's in the bag?" I asked, trying to look in the bag. Mom held the bag up away from me.

"Nothing it's just something your dad got me," She replied, walking into the living room. I shrugged my shoulders and turned back to dad.

"Wanna help me make a snowman?" I asked, looking up at him hopefully.

"You bet," He replied, picking me up…

I sat up, and looked around me. I was still lying on the bed in my room, and the sun was still up so I guess I wasn't asleep for too long. I sighed, and plopped back down on the bed. Suddenly I felt all tingly and everything looked blue. Ugh why me?! Then suddenly I was no longer lying on the bed, but I was lying on the soft ground in some field, and it was no longer day time. I groaned, and stood up. I looked around me, and off in the distance I could see what looked like a tornado. Oh crap, seriously why do I travel back or forward in time to dangerous places?! I could see a car driving around in the distance near the tornado, and I saw something fly out of the tornado.

Just as I was about to run towards the car I started to feel tingly, then a couple seconds later I was once again lying on the bed in my room. I groaned, and glared at the ceiling. I wish I could control this stupid ability.

"Zina Mr. Stark wants me to tell you that dinner is ready," Jarvis announced. I sighed.

"All right thanks I'll be out in a minute," I replied, standing up. I looked over at the clock which read 6:00 pm. I sighed again, and walked out of my room and down the hall to the kitchen. Everyone was in the kitchen grabbing a plate of spaghetti. I walked over to the counter and grabbed a plate, and put some spaghetti on it…
