6 a.m., day after Christmas. I throw some clothes on in the dark, the smell of cold. Car seat is freezing. The world is sleeping. I am numb
Up the stairs to the apartment, she is balled up on the couch. Her mom and dad went down to Charlotte. They’re not home to find us out. And we drive. Now that I have found someone, I’m feeling more alone than I ever have before.

Author’s Note: I made the mistake of listening to “Brick” by Ben Folds Five for the first time in a while, and this is the result. I’m honestly not even sure where this came from, tbh. Read at your own discretion, please. Also you will probably maybe cry. Or at least tear up.
Six a.m. Day after Christmas. Bucky hadn’t slept, although the alarm on his bedside table was beeping. He didn’t move, staring at the darkness beyond his window. It was cold, the blankets on his floor and the window cracked. A gentle breeze caused goosebumps to crawl over his skin and he let out a breath, watching as gentle mist appeared in front of his lips. He couldn’t see anything aside from the space right in front of his eyes, the light from a streetlamp below flickering like a fallen star.
