Surprises || Jan and Hank

"I don’t know… they could be trying to get something free. But the question is, what? I mean… There are so many other dimensions it could be anything." She shook her head. She was glad they had hidden it in a pym pocket. And was glad that Hank hadn’t insisted on looking at it. She’d rather he didn’t anyway. That research had killed her father, and she didn’t want Hank to end up the same way.

She smiled at his enthusiasm. “Damn right it is. And my staff seems to like how I run things. So it’s all good.” She turned her head and kissed him, stroking his cheek lightly. She pulled back and looked at the TV. “Oh, we missed the movie…” She giggled a little. Oh, well. She liked her conversations with Hank.

"You’re right…  it could be anything."  Hank frowned for a second.  "Not to mention very hazardous, even for Hydra.  How could they expect to control whatever they’d set free?"  

He turned his attention back to Jan and smiled reassuringly.  ”We may never know.  I sure hope so, at least.”   He chuckled at her comment.  ”Of course they like you…  you’re plain adorable!”  He pinched her cheek playfully before turning his attention to the tv, where the end credits for the movie were rolling.  ”Hm.  Seemed that we got caught up in another conversation yet again!”  It was funny how much they used to have trouble communicating before, and now it just seemed so easy, so natural.  It was something Hank had always wished for them, but used to have a hard time doing, in fear of worrying Jan, or hurting her feelings, even boring her.  But now that they had sworn to be honest with each other, he felt like he could tell her just about anything.

"Maybe… I mean… I told them I didn’t know, and then Clint swooped in and interrupted them before they could do much else." She said. She hoped so. She wasn’t a scientist by any means… but Hank was. And since the media had basically announced their rekindled relationship, that might mean Hydra would go after Hank. She frowned at that thought.

"Yes. I like it to be a certain way and if it’s not, I get frustrated. I think I have a little bit of OCD." She said with a laugh. She was trying to push away the thoughts of Hydra going after Hank. Even if they did, Hank could take care of himself.

Hank thought about it for a second.  ”I still wonder what exactly do they expect to gain from your father’s notes…  opening a portal to another dimension to release some formic acid-based creature?  I mean, that’s a lousy plan…”  

There had to be something else, but what exactly?  The fact that Hydra could very well try to go after him since their little ambush didn’t work on Jan didn’t even cross his mind.  He didn’t really know anything about Dr. Van Dyne’s research, and although he was really curious about it he preferred not to even take a peek at his notes before hiding them into a Pym pocket.  Still, Hydra didn’t know that…

He shook his head, not wanting to dig further into that for the time being.  He slid his hands around Jan’s waist and smiled.  ”You have every right to want it done your way.  As I said, it is your company after all, and your name that’s on it.  And I’m sure you’ll have a great success, as usual.”  He planted a big kiss on her cheek and smiled at her.

"About a week ago now I think," She replied, "I did have an apartment but I got kicked out… Superheroes aren’t great tenants apparently. I did get a new place but it’s a bit lonely. You don’t think anyone would mind if I moved in?"

Hank smiled again.  ”I’m sure no one would mind.  As I told you, the place is pretty empty already, besides Bruce, and Jarvis of course.  I’m not really sure you’ll get any less lonely though, but I think other Avengers drop in from time to time.  Like Clint, or Cap.  But it’s as much your home as it is to the rest of us.”

Jan nodded at his question. “Yeah. She said they’ve got everything for the summer line planned out an are working on setting up a time and date for the show.” She loved her staff. They were so amazingly awesome.

"But I do want to be back to actually plan the show out, you know, if it’s safe. I have to have things in a particular order and if they’re not, it just makes everything look bad to me." She said, chuckling. She’d always thought it silly to be showing off jeans or pants after dresses.

Hank smiled.  ”Still, I’m sure they couldn’t go on for long without your guidance.  This is still your company, after all.”    He rubbed Jan’s shoulder tenderly.  ”I’m sure it’s going to be safe…  I mean, they must have realized you didn’t know what they were talking about.”

It might have been more wishful thinking than anything else, though.  On the other hand, it would be logical for Hydra to come to the conclusion that Jan really didn’t know anything.  She wasn’t at all in the same business as her father used to be after all.

He frowned a bit, remembering that Jan had told him Hydra had somehow scrambled her Avengers communication card, That was something he’d have to address very soon.  Maybe switch frequencies, set up rotating ones, or better yet, come up with a way to communicate on a frequency that couldn’t be scrambled.  And he just happened to have that exact technology up and running already.

He smiled to himself, thinking he should start working on that first thing next morning, and turned his attention back to Jan.  ”Well, you put your personal stamp on things.  One thing that sets you apart from the rest is the unique way you order and plan your shows.”  He was actually pretty impressed and proud about her career as a designer, and really wanted her to feel that she had his complete support.

"Thanks."  Hank nodded at Carol’s comment.  "You’re right about that.  You’ll always have your place here.  And you’ve always been a great Avenger."

"No problem," She grinned. "That means a lot to me. I really do feel I belong here. Nowhere else feels like home, all my true family are here."

"When exactly did you get back?"  Hank frowned.  "Do you have a place to stay?  Because there’s actually plenty of room at the mansion.  I mean, besides Bruce who has pretty much locked himself down in one of the labs, I don’t think anyone is actually living there at the moment."

thewasp-janetvandyne:

"I know~ but it makes for a good joke." She said smiling up at him. She turned her head and kissed him lightly. She was so glad that they both had gotten things sorted out and were working together on things. It made their relationship feel much more secure and equal.

"Of course! running away from something doesn’t help. You gotta face things head on… even if it’s scary. ‘Cause you’ll be a better person for it in the end." She stated, smiling up at him again.

Hank returned the kiss tenderly and smiled at Jan.  Her take on life was so refreshing to him.  Everything seemed so much easier, so much simpler with her, or maybe it was his own take on life that has changed, thanks to Jan.  In any case, he wouldn’t trade it for the world, and would try each day to make her life better and happier.  She deserved as much, especially on his part.

"So…  did Crystal tell you they’d manage for another day without you?  Because I do like having you here with me…"  He smiled against her cheek.  He could think of half a dozen things he could be working on from home, but the last thing he’d want was for Jan to feel trapped.  Although they didn’t know yet if it was safe for her to go back in town…  he’d prefer having her bored for a short while, but safe with him at home, than to risk her life, and Oliver’s.

"Don’t worry about that.  I really don’t want to mess this up.  We’ve got too much of a good thing going."  Hank smiled.  "But what about you?  Are you here to stay this time?"

"I’m so glad to hear that and truly, I am happy for you two," She said returning the smile. "I plan on it, I don’t really want to leave. My place is with the Avengers."

"Thanks."  Hank nodded at Carol’s comment.  "You’re right about that.  You’ll always have your place here.  And you’ve always been a great Avenger."

Jan giggled at that. “And you know I love any excuse to hang onto you.” She said, snuggling against him. 

This was a good way to end the day. It got her mind off of all the other stuff that had happened yesterday. And she really didn’t want to think about it. Living in the moment with Hank and watching a movie from her childhood made her extremely happy. “See, I’d be scared too if a crazy safari hunter was after me!” She said, referring to the movie.

"I already told you.  You don’t need any excuse.  I quite like it too, you know."  Hank chuckled and held on to Jan, gently stroking her back.  

He was happy to have found a healthy balance between his work in his lab, whether it be at the mansion or here, and his personal time with Jan.  She had a busy job also, so it was easier for the both of them.  They’d work at the same time, and get off of it roughly at the same time, and being on the same schedule was working wonders with their personal life.  Not to mention it would also work well once Oliver arrives.  Hank did have to reason with himself from time to time not to get too carried away and work on something around the clock, but he was still a lot better than he used to be.

"You, scared?  Pfft.  You’re not scared of anything!"  He chuckled again.  "Or maybe it would be more accurate to say that you’re not scared of facing anything."  Scared was a natural, healthy reaction to danger.  But facing what scared you was the real test for a true hero, at least in Hank’s mind.

"It’s funny to me now… but back then it was really scary." She said, laughing. She was fairly sure a good majority of people around her age were traumatized by the movie. 

She smiled up at him. “Oh, I can pretend to be scared… as long as you don’t mind me hanging onto you.” She said, chuckling. 

"I couldn’t say, since I didn’t see it as a kid…  and I’m not sure I really remember the parts that are supposed to be scary."  Hank smiled.  "But I have no problem whatsoever with you hanging on to me, scared or not."

He pulled her to him and sighed happily.  This was the perfect ending for a thoroughly perfect day.  And considering what had happened the day before, the chase with Hydra and all, Jan really needed some time to take her mind off things.  He just hoped that Hydra will realize that Jan didn’t know anything about what they were looking for, and that they’ll leave her alone.

Jan snuggled against him and took the remote. “Hmm… I dunno. I’ll just flip through the movie channels I guess…” She said, as she turned on the TV and began doing just that. 

She flipped through the channels and stopped every once in a while to see what movie was on. She flipped another channel and heard a familiar rhyme. ‘In the jungle you must wait…’. “Oh! Jumanji! I love this movie! Though it absolutely terrified me as a child.” She said, giggling.

Hank set himself more comfortably, cuddling against Jan.  He had gotten used to Jan flipping through channels, and just waited patiently for her to find something she’d like to watch.  

When she stopped zapping, he smiled.  ”I vaguely remember watching this once…  but it’s got Robin Williams, so it ought to be funny.  It’s fine by me.”

He planted a kiss to her cheek.  ”And if you get too scared, well…  I’m right here.”  He chuckled lightly and rubbed his cheek against hers.
