Bucky sat on the bench where he was meant to be lifting weights with the Avengers Tower. From across the room, he could see you talking to Steve, and smiling at his every word.
Just as he had about to start his morning routine, you walked in and completely distracted him. At first, he hoped it could be an opportunity to talk to you more and spend some time alone with you, but this dream was quickly wrecked as soon as his best friend and resident Good Guy™ walked it behind you. Bucky, of course, had no problem with Steve -or in fact Steve hanging out with you- but lately he seemed to be more on edge whenever you would spend time with the guys of the Avengers.
The soldier sighed.
He knew it was ridiculous to feel this way but he couldn’t help it. That’s just how he felt. Recently, as you began to spend more and more time with him and became increasingly affectionate towards him, Bucky grew attached to you. And, the thought that someone could replace him in your life terrified him.
Instead of staring at you and Cap any longer, he tried to focus and began lifting his weights. He put his headphones in and listened to music (that you had of course recommended) in a vain attempt to forget that you were laughing at Steve’s jokes and enjoying the pleasure of his company. Ur… How could he be so stupid to think that you were being anything more than just being nice? Really, after his past he should’ve known that he could’ve never be loved- let alone by someone was pure and kind as you… You needed someone good and whole in your life- someone like Steve.
At this thought, he snapped. Bucky ripped out his headphones, discarded the task of working out and stormed out of the gym. As soon as he had gotten out of the room, he knew he had overreacted but he didn’t regret it. There was no way he was staying in there and watching Steve dote over you.
“What was all that about?” you asked, turning to look away from Steve and towards the door still swinging back and forth on its hinges.
“I have no idea…”
“I better go check up on him- make sure he doesn’t do anything reckless. See you later, Steve!”
You ran out of the room before he could reply, and made short work of finding Bucky. Carefully, you approached him as he sat on his bed. He was leant over, his hands clasped together with his elbows resting on his knees. His gaze was downcast but you could tell he noticed your presence.
“Bucky? You okay?” you asked, sitting down beside him, “You know you can talk to me.”
“It’s nothing… Just go back to Steve.”
‘Steve?’ you thought, confusion being the only emotion you felt at his statement. Although you were unsure of Bucky’s meaning, you said nothing and didn’t question it. For now.
“Seriously, Y/N, go join Steve. I’m sure you miss him,” Bucky muttered, his jealousy seeping through in his tone.
“Why are you acting like this?” you ask, and paused just as you realised why, “Wait… Wait, Bucky… Are you jealous? Of me and Steve?”
The lack of response said it all.
“Oh my god. You’re jealous!”
“Yes! Fine, I’m jealous!” he cried out, making eye contact with you, “I’m jealous because I love you! OK?!”
“Really?” you asked surprised at his outburst.
“Yeah,” he breathed, calming down as your hand touched his, “I’ve loved you since I first met you. You’re so kind to me and you never once pushed me to talk when I didn’t want to. You’re patient and affectionate, but no when to hold back. And, you’re funny and smart… And…”
Bucky blushed realising that he had been talking for too long now.
“I love you too, James,” you murmured.
“Prove it,” Bucky teased, his confidence renewed when he heard your genuine confession.
You pressed a kiss to his lips and began to lose yourself in the kiss and the feeling you had been wanting to give into for so long. Bucky’s heart was racing but everything felt so right. So damn right.
