"Sssssssh," Darcy hisses, placing her finger against Steve’s lips. "You’re going to wake up the whole tower if you keep talking."
Steve raises an eyebrow at her. “I am not the one making unnecessary noise right now.”
"That’s what she said. Ha! Oh God, I’m drunk. This is a terrible idea. Why are you letting me do this?"
"I…. am not as responsible as you were led to believe."
"That’s so fucking hot."
Steve laughs. “Thanks, I think.”
"Anyway. This is a top secret mission, Rogers. Close your trap."
Steve rolls his eyes. “Of course.”
They make it two steps into the kitchen before the lights come on and JARVIS starts to greet them. “We’ve been found out!” Darcy shouts. “Run for the hills, Captain!”
She takes Steve’s hand, and they race through the tower back to his apartment and collapse in giggles and honestly it’s the most juvenile thing he’s done in a while, but it’s the most fun, and when Darcy kisses him, she tastes like rum and sugar cookies.
"Hey," he says, "come away with me."
"I’ve got all this… back pay laying around. And I’ve got a best friend to find and a lot of leave coming my way. Come with me."
"And do… what?"
Steve shrugs. “I don’t know. I just know…. it’s more fun when you’re around. What do you say?”
Darcy looks at him, bleary-eyed. “I think I know why all of those men followed you into the depths of hell, Rogers. I’m in.”
