author’s notes: for @spideywhiteys 1k writing challenge (see chapter 1 notes for more information).
To say things were uncomfortable after the incident with you, Bucky, and Emily was an understatement. As promised, Bucky had apologized to your sister, and the rest of your family who had heard about what happened from her. He didn’t really understand why she felt the need to tell them about it when she hadn’t known exactly what had happened, but he wasn’t about to say that. They were unimpressed enough as it was. Being so protective of you, your family was hesitant to just let it slide, but with reassuring words from you they were willing to try their best.
The tension that lingered ate away at you more than it should have. As your family danced around Bucky awkwardly (and vice versa), you were left wondering once again if bringing a fake boyfriend along on your family’s Christmas vacation might be the worst idea you’d ever had. Despite a couple of rough patches, Bucky really was great, but there were just so many emotions being brought up by the situation that you had never expected to confront. Especially not in the presence of your family or a total stranger.
