On stage, Stark suddenly grabbed the mic and face the audience.


"You know the question I get asked most often is, 'Tony, how do you go to the bathroom in the suit?'" After he finished speaking, the sound of trickling water was heard. It was coming from inside of his suit. "Just like that."


Stark laughed loudly, while the audience laughed with him.


Just then, Ms. Potts finally arrived on the stage, taking the mic from him.


"Does this guy know how to throw a party or what?" Ms. Potts threw a clear sarcasm.


The audience cheered.


"I love you." Stark whispered.


"Aww. Unbelievable. Thank you so much. Tony, we all thank you so much for such a wonderful night. And we're gonna say good night now, and thank you all for coming…"


"No, no, no, we can't … Wait, wait, wait. We didn't have the cake. We didn't blow out the candles."


The couple whispered to each other, Ms. Potts trying to make Stark dismiss the party while Stark insists on continuing.


"Just send everybody home, okay? It's time to…"


"If you say so..."


"Okay? I'll take this, you take that." Ms. Potts said and took the beer bottle away from Stark's hand, while she gave the mic back to him.


Stark faced the audience.


"Pepper Potts. She's right. The party's over. Then again, the party was over for me, like, an hour and a half ago. The after-party starts in 15 minutes!" Stark loudly proclaimed, gaining the audience's cheers again. "And if anybody, Pepper, doesn't like it, there's the door."


After he finished speaking, he accidentally fired an energy blast towards the glass door, breaking it. The audience shouted louder.


Stark fired an energy blast towards the beer bottle a woman threw upwards. Needless to say, it shattered, sending sharp pieces all around. I shielded Lynn's eyes with my hands from some of the glass shrapnel that 'coincidentally' targeted her. This woman's luck was truly excellent.


In the corner of my eyes, I can see the black man that Ms. Potts talked to earlier heading downstairs.


Meanwhile, another woman appeared with a watermelon.


"I think she wants the Gallagher!"


A stronger energy blast came out from Stark's chest, blowing the melon into pieces.


The people cheered even more.


But suddenly, the black man I saw earlier came out with a similar Iron Man suit; the only difference was his was silver while Stark's painted in red and gold.


"I'm only gonna say this once." He looked around the audience with a commanding gaze. "Get out."


The audience scrambled to the door, including us, of course. Although Lynn wanted to stay, I forcefully dragged her out of the mansion while following the crowd. I know full well that those two would end up fighting, and Lynn staying there with her negative luck stats wasn't a good idea.


When we're outside, I quickly used [Clairvoyance]. This time, Lynn noticed the change in my eyes. So she pulled my sleeves, saying. "Hey, what is it? What is it? Let me see too!"


I had no choice but to share the [Clairvoyance] on her too, as she wouldn't stop bugging me until I do so. Thus, we watched Stark's fight with the black man, who he called Rhodey.


They fought in the gym, using the barbells to hit each other. They destroyed the equipment as they traded blows after blows. Eventually, they arrived on the floor we're at, just at the entrance of his mansion.


They resorted to dirty tricks, their fight quickly turning into a dog fight. Stark managed to briefly knock Rhodey out by smashing him to a counter.


He looked in our direction, where the audience had gathered.


"HraaAAaAHh!" Stark roared at the audience, making them flee out of fear.


Meanwhile, Lynn pulled me into a nearby plant, effectively hiding from plain sight. She then took out a camera out of nowhere.


After the people completely vanished, Rhodey suddenly stood up, grabbing a table in the process as he directly smashed it to Stark's naked back. Stark was thrown into the fireplace.


After recovering, Stark immediately raised his hand. Rhodey did the same.


"Put your hand down." Rhodey said.


"You think you got what it takes to wear that suit?"
"We don't have to do this, Tony."
"You wanna be the War Machine, take your shot."


Both of them refused to concede.


"Put it down!"
"You gonna take a shot?"
"Put it down!"


Their gauntlets suddenly issued a screeching sound, the light building up.


"Drop it, Tony!"
"Take it!"


Then the energy blast met in the middle. It produced a beautiful circle blast that quickly became larger and finally creating a big explosion, blowing away both of them.


Meanwhile, my barrier magic repelled all the glass shards and debris that Lynn naturally attracted. And while the two wasn't looking, I swiftly pulled Lynn away and headed towards the limousine. She didn't resist this time, maybe because she already captured several good shots.


Our limousine then drove out of Stark's mansion. The birthday night ended in a way that no one could've possibly imagined.
