“Armie, I’ve had many scenes with him and he’s such a nice guy, he’s lovely. And he makes me laugh everyday, he’s really funny. I think he knows if we’ve been out in the cold, you know, we’ve done some tough scenes in the past couple of weeks now but he kind of keeps the mood up, he brings out his guitar…”- Alicia Vikander
— You and Bucky are roommates and you ask for him to
teach you to be better at sex so you can please another guy —
“Y/N!” You heard your
roommate shout from across the apartment. “Have you seen my shirt?!”
“Why of course, I know
exactly what you do with all your shirts. What type, what color, what brand are
you looking for? Wait, let me just look into my Bucky Barnes archives…” You
shouted back with way too much sass.
A shirtless Bucky poked
his head around the door of your bedroom. “Hardy har har.” He returned before
coming fully into the room. “You’re overly sassy for no apparent reason. What’s
going on?” He strutted over to the bed and took the book from your hands as he
sat down. “Chaucer?” he questioned. “You only subject yourself to Chaucer when
you’re in a bad mood.”
“Yea, well I had a change
of heart.” You retort as you try to snag your book back. He pulled it further
from your reach. “Buck, give me my book back.”
“No, not until you tell
me why you’re in full sass mode today.”
“Well, then I’ll never
get it back.” You sighed as you crossed your arms in front of your chest and
leaned back against the headboard.
“C’mon Y/N. I’m your best
friend. You can tell me anything.” He spoke as he smiled one of his killer
‘your panties just melted’ smiles. Except, you knew when he smiled like that to
you, it was merely platonic. Which sucked.
“Ok fine” you huffed out.
“The truth is…” you began as you sat up. “Steve is my best friend.”
Bucky let out a
frustrated groan and threw your book back in your general direction. “As if.
You know you like me better.” He stood in front of you and stared down; His
eyes traveling up and down your body. “If you don’t tell me then I’ll just tickle
you until you do.”
You made a face at that.
“Don’t do that.”
Bucky started to walk
towards the side of the bed where you sat. “You’ve left me with no choice,
Doll.” He got closer and grabbed your arm as you tried to scramble away.
“OK, OK!! Don’t do it.
I’ll tell you, I’ll tell you!” Bucky released you from his grip.
“There. Was that so hard?
Now spill, Doll. Whats going on?”
You sat up once again and
brushed your fingers through your hair. “Fine, but stand over there.” Bucky’s
eyes travelled to where you pointed.
“You want me to stand in
the corner?” His ‘you-cant-be-serious’ look took over his face. “You cant be
You sighed as you began
to explain. “I need you to be as far away from me as possible when I tell you
this. Its embarrassing.”
Bucky crossed his arms
and began to retreat to the corner. “Fine. Makes total sense, Weirdo.”
You ignored his comment
and pulled your knees up under your chin. “Ok. There is no easy way to say this
so im just gonna do it.” You sucked in a deep breath. “I don’t know how to have
sex. Not well anyway. I have this date with this guy on Friday and its going to
be the third date. Everyone knows the third date rule! I don’t want to suck.”
You finished with a deep breath, recovering your oxygen levels from your intense
“You’re still going out
with that guy?” Bucky demanded as he began to near you again.
You pointed your finger
back at him. “Stay! And yes I am.”
“Why the fuck–?” he
started but caught himself before he revealed too much. “Y/N, look, sex is sex.
Its, uh, its not that big of a deal. Im sure youll be great.” He said as he
rubbed the back of his neck.
“It’s a huge deal, Buck!
HUGE! Its sex!”
“You’ve had, uh, sex
“Twice.” He repeated.
“Yes, twice. I’m going to
suck. I know it.”
“Youre not going to suck.
It’s not possible”
“How would you know,
Buck? Its not like we’ve had sex.” Bucky couldn’t argue with that, they hadn’t,
despite how much he wanted to. “Which is why I’m asking you to help me.” You
said, snapping Bucky out of his thoughts. “I want you to make me better at
Buckys head shot up from
the direction of his feet, eyes wide. “WHAT?!”
“Please Buck, you said it
yourself: sex is sex. Whats the harm if you teach me the ins and outs of it. No
pun intended.” You smirked to yourself.
“You’re my best friend!”
he spoke in an attempt to find an excuse.
“Friends have sex all the
time. You’d just be helping a friend out.”
Bucky thought of another
excuse. “What makes you think I can teach you anything?”
You chuckled “I think the
plethora of random girls that scream their heads off in pleasure and beg for
more is enough for me to know how good you are.”
Bucky blushed. “You hear
“They’re like banshees,
“Are not.” He huffed
“Are too” You returned.
Bucky crossed and uncrossed his arms before shifting his weight to his left
foot. “Bucky, please. We are always there for each other when the other needs
Bucky let out a sharp
laugh. “Yea, but usually its when you want me to pick up your prescriptions
from the pharmacy or fix the plumbing.”
“Buck, I need you. I know
this is slightly different, but whats the harm?”
“I don’t know.” Bucky
pulled his phone from his back pocket to check the time. “I have to go meet
Steve. Just let me think about it.” He pocketed his phone again and turned to
leave the room.
“Don’t forget a shirt!”
You called after him.
Bucky opened the door to
the café and scanned the room for his friend. When he saw the over compensating
build and light hair he started towards one of the window tables. “Steve.”
Steve looked up from his
view of the city and smiled as he saw his oldest friend. “Bucky, its good to
Bucky took a seat
opposite of Steve ordered a coffee when the waitress came around. “Hows
“Great.” Steve began.
“Sharon is great. We got a cat.”
Bucky chuckled. “A cat?
Since when are you a cat person?”
“Since Sharon is a cat
person.” He smirked. “But, whats going on with you? Hows Y/N?”
“Funny that you bring her
up.” Bucky said before he smiled and thanked the waitress for his coffee.
“Oh yea?” Steve smiled.
“Finally tell her how you feel, did you?
“Yea right. Cause that
would go over soooo well.”
“Oh c’mon man, you’ve
liked her since she moved in.”
“Doesn’t matter, she
doesn’t feel the same. She, uh, asked me this morning to help her become a pro
Steve choked on his
coffee and reached for a napkin to clean the drops from his chin. “What!?”
“Yea.” Bucky signed and
sipped his drink
“What exactly does that
“She wants us to have
sex.” Bucky replied nonchalantly. “She wants us to have sex until shes good at
“Shes got this date on
Friday. Says it’s the third date so they HAVE to have sex for some stupid
reason.” He huffed.
“Well,” Steve started
“Think of the Bright side: Youll get to have sex with the girl you love.”
“Smooth attempt at making
me feel better, pal, but there is no bright side. She wants me for the wrong
reason. Its not like she loves me back.”
“All the more reason to
tell her. Maybe she just hasn’t thought of you in that way yet and telling her
may open her eyes.”
“I don’t know, man. Shes
pretty determined. I think if she liked me she’d know.”
“Just think about it,
“Its all I think about.
Which makes me think I cant go through with this.”
you definitely cannot go through with this.”
reentered his apartment after a long and thoughtful conversation with Steve. He
had a very valid point: there was no way Bucky could go through with this, but
the more he thought about it, the more he didn’t want to disappoint Y/N. She felt insecure and that was the last thing
Bucky wanted. So he could do this just once, right?
Y/N called, stepping out of her bedroom. “Are you alright? You seem a little
dazed.” She continued once she saw his facial expression.
well what do you expect?” Bucky mumbled to himself as Y/N entered the kitchen
to put on a pot of coffee.
you say something?”
No.” He hurriedly spit out. Y/N returned her attention to the coffee maker.
“So, I was thinking…” she met his eyes as he continued. “We could try what you
proposed. Just once. I’ll tell you what you want to know from that one time,
but no more. Deal?”
squealed in appreciation. “Oh Bucky, you have no idea what this means to me.
Thank you so much.”
jumped into his arms and wrapped her own around his neck. “Yea. I mean what are
friends for right?”
she smiled. She was so beautiful that he almost kissed her right then and
there, but he quickly stepped away.
uh, how do you want to go about this?” Bucky questioned as he rubbed the back
of his neck.
say we just jump into it. I mean, this is practically for science. No need to
beat around the bush.”
felt his heart crumble just a bit. Hearing her say those words was the last
thing he wanted. If anything, he wanted this to mean something to her in the
slightest. But clearly it didn’t. “Alright.” He spoke clearly frustrated. He
reached for the hem of his shirt and aimed to pull it over his head, but was
stopped by Y/Ns soft hand on top of his.
me.” She lifted his shirt off for him and Bucky thought he had never been more
turned on. Y/N pulled hers off and slipped out of her sleep shorts then turned
and strutted off into her bedroom.
Bucky mumbled as he followed after her.
he stepped through the door, she was standing there waiting for him in just her
underwear. He eased himself closer to her and she reached for the belt around
his hips. ‘This is so bad’ he thought as he grabbed her shoulders and pulled
her up to him. She looked into his eyes and down to his lips. Slowly, she
reached up and pressed her lips to his in the softest of motions. Bucky fell
completely into it and Y/N placed her hand on the back of his neck in an
attempt to pull him closer, but Bucky pulled away. He couldn’t do this. It just
she whispered as she placed her hands on either sides of his face. “Whats the
gripped her hands in his own and removed them from his face. “I cant do this.”
He spoke so quietly; it was practically to himself.
Her face twisted in concern.
cant do this.” Bucky said a little louder so she could hear him, but this time
it was laced with a bit of frustration.
took a few steps away from her. “I just cant.” He grabbed for his shirt, but
Y/N stepped up into his space and grabbed it from him before he could put it
on. “Y/N, give me my shirt back.”
Buck. Not until you tell me whats going on.”
keep it.” He huffed as he headed for the door.
Y/N yelled after him. “Bucky, wait!”
chased him out the door and into their tiny living room. She grabbed his arm to
keep him from getting further away from her. “Y/N, Stop!” Bucky yelled as he
tried to break free from her grasp. She was deceptively strong.
please just tell me whats going on.” He could hear the sadness in her voice. It
almost broke his heart. “Please.” She whispered. Bucky turned to face her with
a cold expression on his face. He figured it was better than showing her his
true emotions in this moment. ‘Did I do something wrong?” He met her eyes in
shock. That was the last possible problem. “Do you not want me?” Slowly, tears
began to fall down her cheeks.
sighed. “That is not possible.” He whispered
You didn’t do anything wrong and its definitely not because I don’t want you,
OK?” He reached up and brushed the tears from her cheeks.
what is it?”
lying.” She was starting to get angry.
Im n-“ he started, but was interrupted.
you are!” Y/N was a full on mix of pissed and distressed. “Tell me!” she
ME!” She screamed again.
LOVE YOU!” Bucky yelled in her face before he’d even realized what he was
doing. He breathed heavily, eyes looking directly at her before he stepped back
and looked to his feet. “I love you.” He spoke again, much quieter.
just don’t.” Bucky rushed past her back to her room and put his shirt back on. When
he got back to the living room, Y/N was still standing there in shock. “I have
to go.” He grabbed his keys of the hook and slammed the door, knocking Y/N out
of her shock.
opened the door to her and her boyfriends apartment to find Bucky standing in
the doorway, his head hung low, soaked to the bone. It must’ve been pouring
outside. “Bucky, come in.” When he didn’t make a move to enter the apartment,
she grabbed him by his arm and slowly pulled him inside. “Steve!?” she yelled
“Can you come here?”
walked out from their bedroom. “Yea, babe- Bucky?”
just showed up. Im going to go get some towels and an extra shirt.” She said
ask she walked Bucky over to the couch and helped him sit down before walking
to the bathroom. Steve inched closer to his friend and sat down across from
he spoke, but got no response. “Bucky?” he tried again. “What happened?”
looked up from his hands, but refused to meet Steve’s eyes. “I told her.”
that’s good isn’t it?” Steve questioned.
Steve, its not. We were about to have sex?”
were going to do it!?”
once. She was doubting herself and you know how I get when she does that. I was
only going to do it once and help her. I thought I could suppress my feelings
for one time.”
kissed her once and I couldn’t do it. Before I knew it, I was yelling that I
love her and now im here.”
placed a hand on his friends shoulder as his girlfriend returned with the shirt
and towels. She placed them next to Bucky to use as he needed.
did she say?” Steve asked.
Bucky sighed. “She just stood there. So I left. Well, actually I started to
leave the second after I told her.”
didn’t give her a chance to say anything?”
couldn’t, Steve. I just had to get out of there.”
Buck.” Steve started “Just stay here tonight, ok?” he sighed. “But tomorrow you
have to talk to her.”
eyes widened. “No, Steve. I cant.”
can. And you will. She is the only girl you’ve ever given a fuck about, never
mind the fact that she and Sharon get along great. You’ve made yourself a nice
little mess and you’re going to fix it so we can all still be friends. Im too
used to our little foursome now to have it fall apart at the seams.”
you the one who told me to tell her how I felt?”
stood from his chair. “Yea. I was thinking more of a sweet scenario where you
buy her flowers and don’t bolt after you tell her.”
grumbled and wrapped a bright, pink towel around his shoulders. “Well you
figured it was implied, Buck” Steve began to turn towards is bedroom. “Couch is
all yours for tonight. Enjoy, stretch out, think of ways to get your girl. But
im gonna turn in. My lady is waiting.”
made a face. “Steve, I swear if you guys have sex 20 feet away from me…”
Buck, Sharon and I are hardcore cuddlers.”
please, Buck if you had Y/N you’d cuddle nonstop.”
remind me that I don’t have her.” Bucky returned as he stretched out onto the
Bucky.” Steve sighed and retreated to his bedroom where is girlfriend waited
for him. Lucky bastard Bucky thought.
jolted awake at the sound of 3 sharp knocks. He could have sworn he imagined it
and was getting ready to settle back into sleep when he heard it again. He
grabbed his phone from his pant pocket which had long been discarded onto the
floor halfway through the night. It was 3:30 am. What the hell. Bucky groaned
as he sat up and walked his shirtless, underwear clad body into Steve and
Sharon’s room. Sharon was nestled up against Steves side and their cat sat on
his chest, rising and falling in rhythm with Steves breathing. Bucky shuffled
forward to Steves side and nudged his shoulder until he woke up.
eyes slowly opened and looked into those of his best friend. “Bucky, what the
early for cursing don’t you think, Cap?”
sighed and laid his head back on his pillow. “What do you want, Buck?” He
whispered in an effort not to stir his girlfriend.
a knock on your door” Bucky spoke nonchalantly as he pointed in its general
a knock-“ Bucky started but what interrupted by the knock itself. “See?”
sat up slightly, causing the cat to jump of his chest and Sharon to slowly
shift in her sleep. “And you woke me because…?”
don’t know. Its 3:30 am. Its dark. Im vulnerable. It could be a psycho killer
and im not in the mood.”
pushed the sheets of his legs and sat up. “Are you kidding me, Buck? Youre the
fucking winter soldier.”
began to walk towards the door as the knocking continued with Bucky hot on his
heels. “Yea, well you’re Captain America. We are equally as capable of opening
the door, but this is your apartment so I figured id let you. Just in case it
is a psycho killer, youd be able to say you defended your own domicile.”
thanks.” Steve huffed as he reached for the doorknob. The door opened to reveal
a slightly disheveled Y/N in none other than her pajamas. Bucky and Steve
stared at her for a moment before Steve turned to Bucky. “Well, it’s for you.
Totally get why you were scared though. She looks like a murderous demon.”
Steve sighed sarcastically. “Im going back to bed. Lovely to see you though
Y/N. Sharon misses you like crazy. I mean it’s been like what, 3 weeks since
we’ve seen you. Crazy how time flies, we should really-“ Steve continued before
behind interrupted by Bucky.
go to bed.” Bucky spoke without taking his eyes off Y/N.
geez, fine. Goodnight Y/N”
Steve. “Y/N returned with a feeble smile.
Steve was definitely in his room, Bucky turned back to face Y/N. “What are you
we need to talk.”
Y/N if this is about earlier then theres no need. I-“
love you, Bucky.” Y/N interrupted.
was Buckys turn to stand there in shock.
snapped back to his senses and was less than pleased. “Is this some kind of
sick joke to you? That’s really low Y/N. I spill my guts and you have the
audacity to make fun of me for it.” Bucky turned back into the apartment but
Y/n followed him in, shutting the door behind her.
im not lying.”
are too. You are supposed to go out on a date this weekend. You don’t love me.
If you did, you wouldn’t date that idiot.”
you said you love me and you had sex 3 days ago. Not with me, I might add.” Y/N
replied laced with a little frustration.
I had to get my frustrations out somehow. I’m not the one who suggested we have
casual buddy sex.”
I was just really confused ok? I really thought that if we had sex once that
I’d get over you. I don’t even have a date this weekend. I broke up with Mike
after he slapped our waitress’ ass as she walked by on our last date.”
Bucky mumbled. “So you tricked me into sex?”
is such a harsh word.”
an accurate one” Bucky finished.
didn’t even have sex Bucky. I didn’t even think id be able to go through with
it. I just wanted to propose the idea to see how youd react. To see if you
wanted me too. I almost died when you pulled away from me.”
looked up into her eyes. “Yea, well you got what you wanted didn’t you?”
detected a hint of anger in his words. “Are you actually mad at me? Bucky, we
love each other. Or at least we did a couple hours ago.”Bucky refused to speak.
It lasted so long that Y/N turned to leave. “Fine, Bucky. Ill just go” Y/N was
stopped by a firm grip on her wrist. She looked up and Bucky pulled her to him,
kissing her like his life depended on it. Y/N kissed back with as much ferocity
as she could. It was passionate and sexy and melting. Y/N had wanted this for
so long and it was amazing. They pulled apart only to breathe and Bucky brushed
his fingers through her hair.
love each other?” He spoke as he rested his forehead on hers.
cant believe it.” Bucky chuckled. “I’ve been in love with you since you moved
years, Four months, and eighteen days.” Y/N whispered.
Buckys head snapped up in shock.
how long we’ve lived together.”
Bucky stepped back from her embrace and rubbed the back of his neck with his hand.
know because that’s how long ive loved you too.”
loved me that long too? You had a boyfriend when you moved in.”
know, which is weird now that I think about it because he let me move in with
another man. He said he wasn’t worried, but he should have been.”
the reason you dumped that guy a month after you moved in?” Bucky questioned.
Y/N only nodded in response. “I cant believe it.” Bucky sighed. “I hated that
giggled and moved to cup his face with both hands. “That’s what he told me.”
yea right. How would he know?”
don’t know. I didn’t see it either, but he insisted that you liked me and
wanted to kill him with your metal arm.”
chuckled and crossed is arms over his chest. “Well, the guy wasn’t as big of an
idiot as I thought.”
ridiculous.” Y/N laughed.
grabbed Y/Ns hand and walked her over to the couch. He laid down and pulled her
on top of him.
what are you doing?”
getting ready to sleep with the girl I love.” He replied as he readjusted his
shouldn’t we go home? You know, since you aren’t mad at me anymore?”
please, doll. I was never mad at you. More just mad at myself. Also, Sharon and
Steve miss you didn’t you hear? And all I want to do is take you home and stay
in bed with you for days, but I figure I owe them a favor for letting me stay
and whine. So, tomorrow we can all go out and they’ll stop complaining about
never seeing you, THEN we will stay in bed for days.”
great plan, Barnes.”
I thought so.” He smiled his cheeky grin. “But for now we will sleep together
and actually sleep.”
