Summary: Steve shows you he loves your body even if you don’t.
You close your eyes and pause a moment before opening them a crack peeking at the scale under your feet. Welp, Happy Holidays to you. That is a number you never thought you’d see. Chancing a glance into your room you see your boyfriend still sleeping peacefully. You step off the scale and put your sweats on, taking care to cover your arms and stomach. Steve had seen it all before, your “scary bits” as you called them. But now you had a number. A big number that suddenly defined them as not scary but terrifying.
You quietly make your way to the kitchen. You had a crazy busy day ahead of you. Pulling the skillet from it place on the shelf you start cooking the best breakfast you could. You were nearly finished with breakfast when Steve woke and quietly made his way into the kitchen, wrapping his arms around your wide hips, placing his stubbled chin on your shoulder.
“Mmm morning. That smells amazing doll” Steve nuzzles into you and kisses your cheek, before grabbing one of the filled plates and heading to sit at the table with his newspaper, disappearing behind it. Looking down at your plate, you bite the inside of your cheek. Pushing your plate away, you collect the pans and start the dishes.
“I’m so sorry I’m late!! I brought an extra-fluffy blanket, two pairs of different socks, some chicken soup for… Your soul? Those books aren’t very accurate recipe books at all… Anyway! And a few fantasy movies I found in the back of some weird store! I’m gonna stick around until you get healed up, alright?”
