You stood at the side of the bed, a bowl of Frosted
Flakes in one hand, a spoon in the other. You were slowly taking bites, taking
your time chewing, savoring the crunch of the cereal. You tilted your head to
one side, then rolled your eyes, loudly clearing your throat.
The blonde in the bed blinked open mascara-smeared
eyes, pulling the covers up around her naked body, but not before you got a
shot of her clearly surgically-enhanced chest.
She closed one eye, squinting the other, then lifted
the hand not currently holding the blanket to rub at that eye. She shook her
head, then spoke, voice raspy and hoarse.
“Who are you?”
You smiled around the bite you had in your mouth,
chewing and swallowing before you spoke.
“Bucky’s wife. Who are you?”
Her eyes widened, shock evident in her features. She
sat bolt upright in the bed, clutching the blanket in both hands. She started
shaking her head, eyes still wide and scared, and you couldn’t hold back
anymore. You snorted, letting the spoon fall back into the bowl. After laughing
to yourself, you shook your head, meeting her eyes.
“I’m just kidding. But you should totally see your
face right now.”
