In the Name of Love
A/N: this is a short blurp lol
You groaned, rubbing the back of your neck while you unlocked the door to your apartment.
After a grueling day at your work, you were ready to pull off the hat and take off the shoes and just relax. Bucky had been gone off some work for a few days, so you knew you were coming home to an empty apartment with all the lights turned off.
A sigh left your lips as darkness engulfed your sight. You haphazardly tossed your purse in what you thought was the general direction of your loveseat, and fumbled to turn on the light.
When you finally found the lightswitch, you flicked it upward and glanced down to take off your shoes.
Underneath your toes was a small pile of pale pink rose petals, some stretching off into the distance while you furrowed your eyebrows. “What the hell?”
Bucky wasn’t supposed to be home for another three days, and you didn’t know anyone else who had access to the apartment.
The shoe closet beside the front door held a large wooden bat inside. As quietly as you could, you opened the door and reached for it, holding it firmly in your grasp as you tiptoed with the path of petals.
Pink roses were your favorite.
It lead to your bedroom door, which was shut. With a deep breath, you swung open the door, prepared to hit anything you saw.
You heard a yell as you swung, making you widen your eyes in panic.
“Ow, what the fuck, (Y/N)?! A man tries to do something nice for his missus and gets hit with a bat?”
You couldn’t help but let out a shout of relief, embracing Bucky as tight as you could.
“You scared me, you aren’t supposed to be home yet.” Your nose was buried in his hair and you felt him wrap his arms around you as well.
He kissed your forehead, “You hit me with a bat.”
You looked at the bat which now had a significant split in it. It was then you realized you had hit his metal arm. “You laid flower petals across the floor and made me panic.”
He couldn’t help but chuckle, “I was never out of town. I set this up so I couldn’t do something romantic.”
Bucky motioned towards the bed and you saw Chinese takeout with candles surrounding on your bedframe.
After the day you had at work, nothing felt better than to know that you could cuddle up with the man you love and eat food.
It was then you noticed that Bucky had completely shaved, and as you were lead to the bed you admired his face as much as you could.
Something about him in the candlelit room made you fall even deeper in love with him. Before you two sat down, you took his stubble free cheeks in your hands and pressed your lips softly to his. “I love you so much right now.”
As you were opening your rice and reaching for your chop sticks, you saw Bucky sitting quietly beside you, picking at his chicken.
“What’s going on baby?”
“Nothing is going on, darlin’. I’m fine.” He gave you a half-assed smile while you chewed on your steamed vegetables.
“No, something is up. What’s up?” Your voice was shaky and you couldn’t help but race possibilities through your head.
Bucky looked at you, “I’m just nervous. You’ll find out why later.”
You gasped, “You can’t just say that shit and thi-”
He picked up a piece of his chicken and shoved it in your mouth, shushing you. He seemed slightly less down and shaky, and now was insistent on you eating.
You dug your chopsticks into your vegetables, picking up a piece of food and noticing something hard as you bit down. Your fingers reached for it in your mouth, pulling out a ring with a gold band and a small diamond in the middle.
Bucky bit his lip, “Do y’know what that means?”
Your mouth was agape, your body frozen with shock while you attempted to grasp the situation in front of you. “Are you proposing?”
Bucky took the ring from your hand and slipped it onto your finger, “Wanna get hitched, doll?”
You grinned, throwing yourself ontop of him and kissing him harshly. Much different to the kiss you two shared his minutes ago.
He held your thighs in his hands and kissed back with just as much force. “Should I take that as a yes?”
“Yes Bucky, you can take that as a yes.” You smiled, pressing your lips against his once again.
