Part 1 | Part 2 | Part 3 | Part 4 | Part 5


Sam stood between the two of you looking very confused. “Wait…Bucky, you two know each other?”

You turned your head to Sam furrowing your brows, “What, you know him?” you asked, pointing to the brunette as he asked the same.

“You know her?” He spoke up, looking between you and Sam. “You’ve been holding out on me, Wilson.” He muttered eyeing you, earning glare.

Sam put his hands up trying to explain. “Yes, Y/N. Buck is a boxer here.”

Buck? Oh, that’s a rich nickname for your nickname. What is he a fucking deer?

You bite your tongue to hold back a laugh, knowing full well he could probably break you with his pinky. Bucky quirks a brow at you and your attention turned back to Sam.

“And this is Y/N, a close friend of mine.” He cleared up. “Now, how do you guys know each other?”

Clearing your throat, you arched your brow up at Bucky. “Well Sam, Buck here is the ass that stole my cab this morning.” You give a sarcastic smile, making the boxer snort.

“Oh, but you gave it up, sweetheart.” Bucky defended with ease, his eyes smirking at you. His words seemed to flow like caramel off his tongue. Warm and slow, thick as he spoke. 

“Really, guys?” Sam chimed in between your small dispute but neither of you heard him.

You scoffed, ready to fire back at him when Sam stepped in stopping you before it went any further. “Okay, kiddo. I got the papers, now let’s go.” He rushed his words and rolled his eyes at the child like behavior of the two of you before pulling you away.  

Leaving the building you fought hard not to turn, but failed, seeing an oh so charming wink from Bucky. The walk home was interesting as Sam explained who Bucky was to him and that a lot of his army buddies were almost always around the gym. You couldn’t deny, it was nice to hear more about him, but boy did that man get a rise out of you. 

Once back at Sam’s apartment you plop on the couch with a sigh. The sun was setting, the golden beams lowering onto the buildings of the city and flooded in the living room through the curtains. Something about the man you’d met intrigued you. You didn’t know why, he seemed like a cocky little shit. But you found that your mind drifted to him.

“Hey you want take out? It’s on me.” Sam asked pulling you from your thoughts.

“Hmm?” You looked up at him realizing what he said. “Ooh, yes!” Grabbing the remote, you searched for a good movie to watch while Sam ordered the food. “How about….Pirates of the Caribbean?”

Sam laugh, flipping through a take out menu. “Depends on which one.”

“Um, the original?” You offered.

“Works for me.” 

When the food finally arrived you both relaxed on the couch talking as you watched the pirates fight for both the ship and the girl. About halfway through, Sam spoke, breaking the silence.

“Hey, so me and a couple of people from the gym are going to the Ace on Friday and I was wondering if you’d like to join?”

You thought of a moment, “You mean the place on 5th?”

“Yeah, you wanna go? It’ll be fun!” You could tell he wanted you to. “I’d like for you to meet them.”

“Sure, what’s the harm.” Your smiled softly and shrugged your shoulders. “Just text me the time you all decide on going.”

Going back to the film, you curled onto the couch more tossing a blanket over you. Your eyes started to lower a little, just when you phone let out a small ring and the screen lit up next to you. 

Tony: Where are you youve been out all day??!

You groaned, seeing it was your uncle. Tony wasn’t much of a father figure. Sure, he had his few words of wisdom every once and awhile and you knew he loved you, but he was always with some woman or down in his lab tinkering away and burying himself in work. Never really there. You picked up your phone replying.

You: I’m with Sam. I’ll be back soon.

“Tony?” Sam asked, already knowing.

You sighed, nodding, “Yeah, I should get going. Thanks for dinner” You smiled and rose from the sofa which had claimed you as it’s own from the deep plush of the cushion. After helping clean up the leftover food you grabbed your bag, heading to the door.

“I’ll see you Friday?”

“Next Friday.” You agreed, smiling back.

“Alright, drive safe, Y/N. Text me once you get home.”

Rolling your eyes playfully you hugged him, “I will. I will. Goodnight, Sam.”

Spring is here in southern NY! Duncan built this plant stand on our deck one day while I was at work. It’s a model for a group of them that we’ll be putting in our community garden this year –we’ll be switching to buckets. It has clear acrylic panels and an automatic solar-powered watering system. We have lots of microgreens going and brought them out into this beautiful 70 degree day to get some sun- happiness! From the top: arugula and mustard greens, bronze arrowhead and purple lettuces, dill, fennel, red winter kale, and deer tongue lettuce.

deer sticking out their tongues are my favorite thing like nothing makes me happier than their cute lil tongues h elp
