Sirius, ready to storm out of Grimmauld Place with a broken nose and unshed tears in his eyes.
His fathers locked himself in his office and he doesn’t know where his mothers gone but the house is horribly silent in the wake of the screeching, hour long argument that just took place.
Regulus is pale and wide eyed in the doorway to his bedroom as Sirius slams his trunk closed.
Sirius says ‘leave with me’ at the same time as Regulus says 'stay’.
They haven’t been honest with each other or gotten along well since Regulus was sorted to Slytherin and they stand and stare at each other and both think the other looks frightened.
They say 'I can’t’ at the same time.
On his way out Sirius almost passes Regulus before he stops and grabs him roughly. He kisses the top of his head because Regulus has always been shorter than him and says 'I love you Reg’ thickly into his brothers hair before he lets go, barely seconds having passed.
Sirius is half way towards the stairs when he hears Regulus say 'you too, Siri’.
“When was the last time we went on a date?” Bucky asked.
You and him were sitting on couch in the entertainment room watching a rerun of The Walking Dead when you looked his way, your eyebrows furrowing in confusion as he shrugged, popping another piece of candy in his mouth.
“What? I’m just wondering,” he stated simply, causing you to become even more baffled by his question.
“You’re asking when was the last time we went on a date?” you questioned in disbelief, seeking for some clarification.
Bucky gave you an incredulous look. “Uh…yeah, that’s what I was asking.” You blinked at him a few times before turning away from him, still confused. “Geez (Y/N), why are you acting so weird about my question? I’m just curious.” When you didn’t say anything, Bucky returned his attention to the television screen as he sighed deeply. “I mean…we can go out for dinner tonight, if you want. I guess it has been a while since I took you out anywhere. I’m sorry about that,” he said with utmost sincerity. “Please don’t get mad.”
A smile tugged on your lips as you mumbled something under your breath to him, Bucky looking over to you.
“Wait…what did you say?” he asked as you spoke up once more, trying to control the laughter erupting inside of you.
“When did we start dating?”
His eyes widening, Bucky suddenly realized that he never officially asked you out on a date. He forgot to ask you first. “Oh…” was all he could say, resting his back on the couch as his face started to flame up in embarrassment. “I…wow…this is…” Unable to finish his thoughts, Bucky laughed to himself and covered his face, wishing he could teleport himself out of this situation.
Letting out a chuckle, you scooted closer to Bucky and draped your arm around his shoulder. “We can fix this, you know?”
Bucky gazed at you and raised a brow. “How can we fix this?”
Sliding your arm off of him, you took both of his hands and smiled. “Do you want to go out on a date with me?”
Grinning from ear-to-ear, Bucky nodded his head and sighed in content. “Yes…I would love to go out on a date with you…officially,” he added, winking at you.
Filled with happiness, you kissed his cheek and wrapped your arms around him.
