A New Beginning
Warnings: fighting, angst, more of Reader telling Stark off
“Can I talk to you for a second, Steve?” You cleared your throat, hanging back with Steve as the team dispersed.
“Yeah, what’s up?” He studied you, narrowing his eyes when you avoided eye contact.
“I’m scared.” You let out a shaky breath.
“You’re scared? I don’t think I’ve ever heard you say that before.” He rested his hands on your shoulders.
“It’s not that…I…I’m just tired. The fight at the compound took a lot out of me and I’m scared I’m going to let you guys down.” You pulled your hair up into a high pony and sighed.
“You could never let us down, (Y/N).” He smiled and pulled you into a hug. “Are you ready?” He rubbed your back and you nodded.
“As ready as I’ll ever be.” You pulled away and continued nodding your head, desperate to convince yourself more than Steve.
