Just a Misunderstanding
Hi I was wondering if your still taking requests, could I request a one shot where Bucky and reader have been together for ages, and the reader has been coping with buckys nightmares and talking down the soldier when he turns into him, but she becomes exhausted doing that and working, and Bucky and Steve think it’s a good idea to hire someone else to deal with buckys nightmares, not realising that it will hurt readers feelings and makes her think Bucky doesn’t want her anymore,
She try’s to leave him and tells him she will help train the new person to deal with the soldier, and she packs her bags when Sam finds her In her room, and then goes to tell bucky and it ends all fluffy please if that made any sense 😊
Pairing: Bucky x Reader
Bucky and I have been dating for a long time now, we met back when Tony and Steve had a fall out, and I was on team Cap. I don’t know why but I had a strong desire to protect this man, and he seemed to return the feelings. Ever since then we’ve been inseparable. I’m not going to lie, it has been difficult dealing with Bucky’s nightmares and when he reverts back into the soldier. It’s been wonderful though, he’s the greatest thing that’s ever happened to me. It also helps that when the soldier gets awoken, it’s like I’m the only person he sees. He protects me, he doesn’t try to kill me. I’m the only one too. It is weird, but hell, I’m not complaining.
I find that I’m awake most the night now, waiting for him to have a nightmare, so I can catch it and pull him out of it quickly before the soldier has a chance to take over. It is this exact situation that’s gotten me in the predicament today. I’ve been slacking in my job lately, I’ve found myself forgetting things, or getting hurt on missions and it’s just not like me. I don’t know what I’m doing anymore it seems, the lack of sleep has really taken a tole on me. But I’d do it again, and again, and again, for him. There isn’t anything I wouldn’t do for him.
“(Y/N). Bucky and I have talked, and we think we should hire someone to take over this job for you.” My eyes shoot open. The want to find a replacement? They want to replace me? So I’m not good enough…
“O-Oh…but why?” I try to conceal the sound of my heart breaking, but I don’t think it’s working.
“(Y/N), doll. You can’t keep doing this, your performance on the field has dramatically decreased and…well…I don’t mean to be mean but we can’t be babysitting you all the time. We worry about you.” That slap in the face went right through my heart. So that’s all I am? I’m just in the way. I should have known. I look at Bucky, tears threatening to fall from my eyes.
His shoulders slump, and he looks torn.
“Doll, why are you crying? I thought you’d be happy…you can take a break..” I just stand up, turning away and heading to my room.
“I’ll help to train the new girl, I guess.”
I don’t know what they were thinking, was I just a game all along? Just some pillow for Bucky to sleep on, and fuck occasionally? I honestly thought he loved me.
I make it back to my room, and start packing my bag. I didn’t have much but I guess that just makes the leaving process even easier. I hear a knock on my door, turning to see Sam at my door, leaning against it.
“I saw you power walking up to your room, looking upset. What’s wrong?” I drop everything and run into his arms. Sam has always been like a brother to me, and he’s always looking for reasons to kick Buck’s ass. Maybe this’ll be a good one.
“Bucky doesn’t want me anymore…” I manage to speak through the unattractive, uncontrollable sobbing.
“W-What? What do you mean he doesn’t want you?”
“They’re gonna hire someone to take my place because I’m just not good enough any more…” I wipe my eyes on the sleeve of my shirt and pull away, continuing to pack my things.
“So, you’re just going to leave? Just like that?”
“What choice do I have Samuel?” He sighs.
“I don’t think that…nevermind. I’ll be right back.”
“You better hurry then, because I won’t be here much longer.” When I turn around, he’s gone.
Sam rushes down to the training room, where he assumed Bucky and Steve would be, and he’s correct. They’re both practising hand to hand combat. When they notice his presence, they turn to look in his direction.
“Oh hey, Sam! You come to help us train?” Steve stands with his legs spread, Bucky with his arms crossed.
“No, I came to let this dumb ass know his woman thinks he doesn’t want her anymore, and she’s packing her bags. She’s leaving.” Sam looks to Bucky, his gaze would almost be enough to scold a man. Bucky stands up straight.
“She’s leaving, man. She doesn’t think you love her anymore.” Before Sam can finish his sentence, Bucky rushes past him, no doubt to (Y/N) and his room.
“S-She’s leaving? Oh God, this isn’t what we meant by hiring someone, we just wanted to make (Y/N)’s job easier.” Steve sits on the mat and Sam sighs.
“You don’t always think before you speak, Cap. That, and you’ve never been good with women.”
I’m about to the elevators, lost in my own thought when I’m lifted off the ground and into someone’s chest.
“What the?!” It’s Bucky…I know the feeling of his well sculpted chest anywhere.
“I’m so sorry, I’m so sorry, doll. Please don’t go…” I look up at him, clearly confused. He must be as well.
“I-I didn’t mean I didn’t want you, God no! No, I-I just meant I want you to be able to sleep well, and be more alert on missions, I feel like I’m draining you and I just wanted to hire someone to help you, that’s all. I don’t want you to leave, please don’t leave me…please…I love you…” He looks into my eyes, fear has consumed his, and I realize that I just overreacted…
“S-So, you don’t want me gone?”
“No! Oh my God no, doll…no..I love you and I need you…” He lifts me, and presses his lips to mine in a desperate kiss, one that I am eager to respond to.
“I’m so sorry I made you feel that way…” I chuckle, kissing his nose.
“You’re almost as bad at speaking to women as Cap is. Don’t listen to him when it comes to us anymore, alright?” I laugh, and he chuckles with me.
“Alright doll, I love you.”
“I love you more, Sarge.”
