You had nothing to do, so you decided to convince your boyfriend to do something. Anything. Searching in your bag for his apartments keys, you hear it. A woman’s name and soft moans. With anger and curiosity building up in your stomach, you quickly unlock the door. Your heart stops when you open the door to see a half naked woman laying above your completely naked boyfriend. You shut the door with all your strength, finally making them stop and rush to finds their clothes.
“(Y/N), I can explain…” Michael tries to hide the girl behind his back, awkwardly putting his pants on.
“Don’t even try.” Your voice is furious, like fire burning your throat. “I don’t know why I’ve been trying to love you! You don’t deserve it.” He was acting weird, distant, but you thought that maybe he needed some space. But this? This is unacceptable.
“(Y/N), don’t say these things. You’re breaking my heart.” He helps the girl to get dressed.
You can’t believe it. The only reason you’re dating Michael is because you’ve been friends for years. And because the man you love doesn’t think he deserves to be loved. Now, that’s what you get. Michael always uses to say he loves you more than his own life, just like he was begging you to never leave his side. Lies.
“You know what, Michael? Why don’t you finish what you’ve started with this girl? I never loved you anyway, and it feels good to finally tell you that. I just thought we could get along since we were friends. But no.” Smiling, you open the door again, holding back your tears. “I don’t want to see you again. Never.”
Before he can answer, you close the door and run to the elevator and then to your car. With tears in your eyes, you drive too fast, not giving a damn about the signs.
When you stop the car you take your cell phone. Maybe he isn’t here. Maybe his too far to help you.
“(Y/N), how are you?” Bucky’s voice is familiar, kind, it takes your breath away.
“Bucky… are you in your apartment?”
“What happened?” He’s suddenly worried, the weight on his voice hurting you.
After a few moments of silence, you see him opening the building’s front door. You take your bag and get out the car, running to his arms.
Bucky’s arms are always warm, the best place on earth. He doesn’t say anything, his hand caressing your hair. A loud thunder makes you jump, looking at the dark sky.
Without a word, he guides you through the stairs until his small cold apartment. You throw your bag on the couch, heading to his bedroom.
“I’ll get some sleep.” It’s all you manage to say, your voice still fainting. You don’t want him to know how miserable you feel.
“No, (Y/N). Tell me what happened.” Bucky sits by your side, holding both your hands in his. “You’ve been here for me. Now I want to be able to help you.”
“Michael, he… God, I don’t even love him!” It comes out abruptly, your tears coming back. “I’m an idiot! He was fucking that whore! I don’t give a fuck, but he was with me. It’s humiliating. I know I’m not hot or tall or whatever the fuck but at least I deserve some respect.”
Breathing heavily, you look at your own hands. Bucky’s fingers are caressing yours, and only God knows how much you want him to know how you feel.
“You’re beautiful, (Y/N). You need to know that…”
“Don’t do this, Bucky, please. The last thing I want is you to say things just to make me feel better.”
“Would you stop and listen?” He moves closer, forcing you to look into his eyes. “I never lie to you. You are a beautiful girl and any man would be lucky to have you by his side. I wish I could…” His voice fades, and without thinking too much, you crush your lips on his.
The feelings take the best of you when you feel his hand moving to cup your cheek. Bucky’s lips are soft, warm, inviting you in. But your phone starts ringing and you pull away abruptly. You pick it from your pocket and throw it at the wall, making the stupid music stops suddenly. Bucky smiles at you, pointing at the bed.
“You can stay for the night. I’ll take the couch.”
“No. I mean… Can you please stay with me?” You move, giving him space to lay beside you. And that’s what he does.
“Come here.” He whispers, so you lay down, your head on his chest.
“Promise me you’ll never…”
“I’ll never leave you. I’ll never cheat on you.” That makes you raise your head to look into his eyes.
“How do you know…?”
“We have been in love with each other for too long. It’s time to stop torturing myself.”
Tears roll down your cheeks again, but they are tears of joy. You don’t say anything, you just stay there, enjoying how good it feels to have him so close. Slowly, you drift off to sleep, hearing his heartbeat singing to you.
