Sting - Part 2
A/N - Thank you Taw @supersoldierslover. You are the absolute best .
WARNINGS - None, maybe some angst idk .
(second time using this gif, cause I couldn’t find any)
You wanted to let it go . Well at least you tried to . But you couldn’t . How could you when every morning you were blessed with the sight of the new couple together at the cafe. You stopped going there. You just couldn’t .How you wanted to walk over to him and tell the truth. It wouldn’t be that hard , maybe he would believe you. But then again , you now knew how manipulative your friend was and you were sure she would cook up some story .
It hurt you . For the past 6 months you were hurting under the impression that Bucky cheated on you . That he was with another person while he was with you . He craved pleasure in someone who wasn’t you . The thought of him touching another person , kissing another person and having sex with them increased your hatred towards him . But to now know that it was all a lie hurt even more. You lost a man that made you oh so very happy.
But it wasn’t really your fault , was it? She fed you with lies for over a week . She told you about how she had her suspicions about Bucky’s character .Until that day she called you and told you that he cheated. You felt that she was your true friend .She looked out for you . You were glad that you decided to befriend her 4 years ago at the office party.
You called her that night to inform her that you were going to your brothers , and that you were going to stay there for a while. But she didn’t lift the phone.
She called you a few times and the conversations only lasted a few minutes and then she stopped calling all together . But you had your brother so you didn’t think much of it. You even called her to inform that you got a job near the old one and that you will be coming back , but she didn’t lift her phone .
Now you could see it all so clearly .How she betrayed you with her lies . Why would you ever think that your bestfriend would ever do such a thing.
It wasn’t easy passing her occasionally and not just slap her for doing this to you . As the days increased the guilt on her face became evident. You could see that she knew exactly how bad she fucked up . But you didn’t know if it was real guilt or she was just acting so that you wouldn’t tell any of this to Bucky .
But you knew he deserved to know the truth . If he chose to stay with Sabrina even after knowing the truth then there isn’t much you could do. So you decided to tell him. He worked in the firm right next to yours , and so did Sabrina . You walked through the hallways searching for the that had his name on it. But before you could , you were being dragged around the corner by you ‘best friend’.
“Fucking touch me again , and I will break your hand.” You scolded pulling your elbow from her hand
“What are you doing here?”, she asked sternly.
“I came to meet Bucky.” You replied.
“For what huh? You are going to tell him the truth?”
She laughs bitterly at this .
“Do you really think he is going to believe you?”
“I don’t know. But I can try to make him see how pathetic you are.”
“Oh honey . Don’t you see how happy he is with me . I love him more than you ever could. He deserves much better than you . And that’s why he has me .”
The words stung your heart, but you couldn’t show it to her. You knew that even if a hint of belief crossed your face she wouldn’t use it against you.
She pushed past her with tears stinging your eyes and made way to your office. You couldn’t look at her anymore or Bucky . Maybe he was happier now . Maybe she was better him .
With a clean face and tissues in your hand you sat back in your office and got back to work , hoping that it would be a distraction from the current situation .But however hard you tried you couldn’t remove the image of Bucky from your mind. You were reminiscing .
You remembered your first date. The ever confident and flirtatious Bucky Barnes looked so cute when he was shy and nervous about asking you out . And when you accepted the smile that grew on his face was blinding . It was nothing fancy . He took you out to a nice restaurant and then to your favourite ice-cream parlour . It was a day you could never forget because it was the first time you had a taste of his lips.
You hand rose to your lips as you rubbed it thinking about how tender and gentle the kiss was. You let the tears flow down your cheek staining your shirt when you heard your door opening .
In front of you stood Bucky with Sabrina by his side.
You got up from your seat and looked at both of them .
“Bucky , she’s not worth it . She left you!!!” Sabrina said trying to pull Bucky out of the door.
You could feel the anger boiling inside you . How the fuck could she even say that?? I left him???
“I know. But I want to know why?” he said looking at you . He looked hurt , he looked the way you looked when she lied to you about Bucky indecency .
“But why? I mean , why does it matter now.” She knew that there was no way out of this situation , she looked worried about the cat getting out of the bag.
“I just need to know.” He walked towards you , standing in front of your desk , his eyes boring into yours. “Tell me .”
You knew if you told him the truth he wouldn’t be with Sabrina. But what if she was right? What if he was happier with her than he was with you?
“Y/N Please.”. he begged. He looked hurt and angry he deserved to know the truth .
“I thought you cheated on me.”, the words barely audible.
“What?”, Bucky was taken aback by your words.
“Wha…What did I ever do to make you think that? I neve…I never cheated on you.”
“I know that now.” You say with your head down , sounding guilty. You knew it wasn’t your fault but you did hurt Bucky .
“Why did you think that?” He asked a little more sternly.
“I…Because..”, you wanted to tell him, but you still weren’t sure for some reason .
“Y/N , just tell me.”
You could see from behind Bucky that Sabrina was already standing with her head down , looking guilty as fuck.
“Sabrina told me.” , you blurted out . You couldn’t hold it back. He needed to know.
“What?? “ he asked turning to face her .
As the words came out of your mouth she instantly looked up to you , anger behind her gaze .And now that Bucky turned towards her , her expression completely changed.
“Is it true?” You expected him to be more angry and furious , expected him to scream at her . But he didn’t . He felt the same thing you felt when you found the truth. Betrayal . He couldn’t believe that someone was capable of doing this .
“Yes . But Bucky I did it because I love you.” She pleaded taking his hands in hers. He pulled away instantly.
“Well thats a weird way of showing it. You took away someone I loved the most . And you want me to believe that you love me?”
“Get out.” Was all that he said . She was crying . You didn’t know what to feel . Were you angry yes. But you were a little sad too .You knew the feeling . You knew how you felt when you thought Bucky didn’t love you .
You watched her walk away . out of your office. Wiping her tears . You looked at Bucky who still had his back towards you .
“I am sorry.” You didn’t know what you were sorry for exactly but you said it anyways .
He slowly turned towards you as you continued speaking, looking down at your desk.
“I know that things ended badly ,and you love or loved Sabrina , and I don’t know where we stand but….” you squeaked in surprise as you felt him press his lips against yours.
After a moment of surprise you melt into the kiss and wrap your fingers around his neck. The kiss was urgent and full of need.
For someone reason tears rolled down your eyes as Bucky hugged you , close to his chest .
“Hey , it’s okay .”
“I thought I lost you now. I thought you loved her.”
“I love you . Always did.” His words soothed your heart and your lips curled into a smile.
“I love you.” He pulled you closer to his body , hoping he doesn’t have to lose you again .
A week passed before your path crossed with Sabrina’s. You saw her enter the cafe. You couldn’t to sip on your tea when she came and sat in front of you .
A few minutes of silence passed before she spoke up .
“I am sorry . I was selfish . I should have never hurt you . I know you can’t forgive me . And I know you can never trust me . But I just wanted you to know that I ashamed of what I did . And I am sorry.”
You didn’t know if you could believe her or not. But you knew that forgiving her will give a fresh start to the both of you.
“As you said I don’t know if I can ever trust you , but I do accept your apology.” You say smiling .
She smiled back softly.
Thank you for reading. I love to hear from you guys .
