    Summary

    She proceeds quickly around the room, ripping pages out of scattered journals, tearing down maps and pictures from where they hang, and destroying any goddamn memorabilia she can get her hands on. She might be screaming as she does it, not caring in the slightest who hears her. Let their neighbors know that her husband has left their son in tatters over a simple drawing; let everyone know her husband is just as fake and cracked as these rich snobs she has had to play good little trophy wife for. She wants to smash everything in this goddamn fictitious world she's been existing in until she can see the ugliness peak from beneath the cracks, because only then will she be certain that anything in these past few years was real.

    But all to soon, the fight in her gradually wanes as she realizes there's too much stuff; on the walls, lining every bookcase, and wedged in nearly every crevice of the office. There are too many countless reminders that her husband has collected of the long gone war hero, who he cherishes more than their own son.

     

    When Tony is 5 years old, his mother grabs him and two packed duffle bags, before fleeing in the middle of night to seek sanctuary in Wakanda.
