Pen Pals: A Forgotten Friend (private)
When Tony Stark was only twelve years old, emotionally neglected from his father and practically forgotten by his overworked mother, he began an online friendship through a pen pal program. His partner turned out to be a ten year old female from London, England. They were constantly communicating, sharing stories and forming a true friendship through the years.
Although Tony never gave away his last name, in fear that his father's legacy would cause problems. These two became extremely close, even beginning to develop a semi-romantic attachment when suddenly Tony stopped all communication on his fifteenth birthday. That's when Tony was enrolled at MIT and thrown into the adult world, forcing him to leave behind his pen pal.
Now twenty-seven year old Tony Stark is interested in re-connecting with his old friend. He asks Pepper to track the emails and seek out any information that can be found. What they discover is quite surprising. Not only has she immigrated to the United States, currently living in New York, but she's also world famous..
