“Steve!” you called out as you ran after him. After a cacophony of ‘excuse me’ and 'sorry’, you stepped out of the sea of people, and ran out the door, the loud music dulling once you stepped outside. You spotted Steve hunched over, holding onto a streetlight as he breathed in and out heavily. “Hey, Cap! Are you okay?”
He looked up at you, and you spotted beads of sweat running down his face. Forcing a smile, he nodded at you. “Yeah, ____. I’m fine. Go back in and enjoy the party.”
He had been acting unusual ever since he got back from a mission a few weeks ago. You always tried to coax him into talking about it, but he’d never open up to you, choosing to carry his problems, despite painting a brave front for the rest of the team. Seeing him in very evident torment was the final straw, and you were determined to find out what was wrong.
You slowed to halt as you came to stand beside him, reaching up to touch his forehead. “You’re burning up. Can you get sick?” You frowned. “Is that even possible?”
He gently took your hand in his much larger one, and lowered it away from his face. “It was hot in there, and I just need fresh air. That’s all.” He squeezed your hand. “Now how about we go back inside before Tony comes out to get us?”
You scoffed. “Do you really think that’s going to work on me?”
He chuckled softly. “No, you’re too smart for that.”
You stared up at him expectantly. “So, will you finally tell me what’s going on with you? Please.”
He sighed and looked around at the empty sidewalk. “Walk with me?”
