“Can i request? Bucky and reader doesn’t get along and in a movie night the girls decide to watch magic mike II with the rest of the team and Bucky and Steve judging the whole movie because “they’re dancing like they’re having sex” and Bucky and reader starts to throw some sassy comments on each other something like that please”
“Good thing you have a super metal arm huh?”
Bucky took a deep breath through his nose and looked at you, trying to ignore the urge to throw something at that stupid smirk of you. He was trying to open a jar of jelly and for some stupid reason, the lid wouldn’t even move. Of course he could try with his metal arm, which would be much easier but it would also end up in him breaking the jar.
But you didn’t get that, right? All you did was teasing him and throw sarcastic comments at him every single time you had a chance. Of course, it wasn’t all you. He wouldn’t shut up either. It hadn’t always been like this. When you two met, you had really got along perfectly. Up until Steve’s birthday party. No one really knew what happened then between you two but thing had never been the same and you never explained anything. So it was a completely mystery for everyone.
“Can’t you just keep your mouth shut for two minutes straight?” He snapped at you.
“Sure I can” you shrugged walking in the kitchen and heading to the fridge. “But where would be the fun?” You asked.
He took another deep breath and focused back on the jar. You smirked as you saw him fighting the object as you drank some water. When you put the bottle back into the fridge, you walked over him and stretched out the hand. Bucky looked at you frowning and, with a sigh, he gave to you.
Smirking, you took the jar, smashed the border of it against the counter as you turned it and flipped the lid open. With a huge smile you gave it to him.
“Welcome to the XXI century, Sargent Barnes” you said as he took the jar back from you. “Let me know if you have any problem opening a door. They can get tricky”
With that, you exited the kitchen knowing you had won this time.
“She’s so annoying!” Bucky exclaimed. He was at the conferences room with Steve while the Captain finished some mission report. “I don’t know how you put up with her and her attitude” he added crossing his arms.
“She’s not bad” Steve said for the hundredth time. “What happened between you two? When you met her it even looked like you liked her” he shrugged.
“I didn’t know her. That was the problem” Bucky replied. “Luckily I did it on time” he sighed.
Steve looked at Bucky for a moment before shaking his head. He had been giving the same answers for months now and he just didn’t believe them. He knew something had happened, something they didn’t want to talk about. But asking was useless so he just tried to be patience and hope that thing went back to how they used to be at the beginning.
When Steve finished his report, he put everything in order before heading towards the living room with Bucky, planning on watching a movie or a game. Just looking forward some distraction. To their surprise, the living room and the TV were already taken: Natasha, María, Wanda and you were sitting on the couches with popcorns all around and a movie playing on the TV.
“Hey there” Steve said placing his hands on the back of one of the sofas, where María and Natasha were sitting. “What are you watching?” He asked looking at the screen.
“Magic Mike” Wanda answered, not taking her eyes off the TV.
“Never heard of it” Bucky commented.
“I would be surprised if you had” Natasha chuckled.
“Why?” He frowned.
“Too new for you, grandpa” you said looking at him.
He gave you a death glare but you had turned your attention back to the TV with a small smile.
“Don’t start” María sighed.
“It wasn’t me” Bucky mumbled.
This time you decided to be silent since you didn’t want to ruin girls night because of him. Instead, you grabbed some popcorns and ate them from your hand. Steve and Bucky looked at each other before shrugging and sitting with you. Steve sat with Wanda and you and Bucky with Natasha and María, taking some popcorns from the bowl.
None of them really understood what the movie was about but when the first dancing scene came up, their jaws fell down and their eyes stuck out from their orbits. What was that? That wasn’t dancing! That was naughty!
“What kind of movie is this? Porn?” Steve frowned looking at all of you, making you laugh.
“I would really watch a porn movie if Matt Bomer was in it” you smirked.
“Amen to that” Wanda laughed by your side.
“But what the fuck?” Bucky exclaimed. “They’re dancing like they were having sex!” He added.
“You’re a virgin, right?” You said laughing. He narrowed his eyes looking at you.
“I’m not” he said.
“Then if you think that’s sex I’m sorry for the girls you had in your bed” you told him with a smirk.
“You wish you were one of them” he snapped. You raised an eyebrow at the statement.
“Sorry, I’m not into old people, darling” you said. “Cardiac arrest is not exactly a turn on for me” you added.
“How can you be such a bitch?” He said, louder now. Natasha sighed and paused the movie, knowing this wasn’t going to be over soon.
“How can you be such an egocentric asshole?” You snapped back.
“Guys…” Steve said trying to stop you before a real fight started.
“C’mon! You’re crazy for me just admit it!” He exclaimed.
“How you dare!?” You almost screamed, getting up from the couch. He mirrored your action and walked over you.
“I do dare! Just fucking admit it” he said in your face now.
“What for? So you can go and mess with my best friend all over again?” You yelled.
“What the fuck are you talking about?” He asked. “You’re the one who messed with another one! I saw you!”
“You’re blind if you think you saw anything!” You said pushing him with both of your hands.
“What the hell are you guys talking about?” Natasha asked.
You looked at him, breathing fast but trying to calm down. It was the first time that night came up and you definitely weren’t ready to have a conversation about it. Let alone, a fight.
“During Steve’s birthday she left with Parker” he stated.
“I what? Are you out of your mind?” You exclaimed opening your eyes widely.
“I saw you going upstairs with him and you can deny that!” He exclaimed back.
“You’re sick. You’re completely sick” you said in a normal tone now. “He was about to pass out drunk. I took him to his room, came downstairs and saw you with Maggie” you explained. “Peter is 15, Bucky, what the fuck?”
Bucky frowned as he looked down at you and gulped. Actually, that made much more sense than what he had imagined. And he had been an asshole and had started flirting with your best friend as soon as you disappeared upstairs with the Parker kid. He gulped and looked around, not knowing what to say or do. All the eyes were on him, including yours, looking at him hurt and confused, waiting for an answer.
“I gotta go” he mumbled, turned around and walked towards the elevator.
You stood there, looking at him walk away and disappearing into the elevator. You weren’t even sure about what had just happened. All you knew was that you were so confused and didn’t know what to think.
You didn’t even finish the movie. When Bucky left, you excused yourself and went to your room, trying to digest what just happened. So everything had been a misunderstanding. A huge one, leading to Bucky and you hating each other, or trying to, when you would have ended up together. Everything would have been so easy if you had talked to him. But no, you had to assume the worst.
Dinner wasn’t in your plans that night so you just laid in your bed for hours, trying to fall asleep and failing miserably. You just couldn’t take it out of your head. What would have happened if you had talked to him that night?
“Miss (Y/L/N), Mr Barnes is at your door. Should I let him in?” You frowned when you heard F.R.I.D.A.Y.
Sitting up, you quickly considered your options. Of course, you could just say no and spend the whole night awake, overthinking everything. But what would be the point? You knew you had to have this conversation and the sooner you had it, the sooner you could move on. You told the AI to let him in.
“Hey” he said as soon as he was in and he had closed the door.
“Hi” you said, feeling a bit uncomfortable and nervous.
“I guess we have to talk” he said, with his hands in his pockets. You gulped and nodded, palming the bed beside you so he took a seat.
A bit insecure about it, he looked at you for a moment and then sat down next to you but keeping his distance, not knowing what this was going to work out.
“I think this is the first time we’re alone in a room since…you know” you commented.
“Have you already forgotten the elevator incident?” He asked looking down at his boots.
“Oh…of course” you chuckled a little. “That was interesting” you sighed. He nodded and looked at you at the same time you looked at him. “What happened that night?” You finally asked. He bit his lip and looked down again.
“I…” he frowned and sighed, as he remembered the night. “I had been watching you the whole night, you know? I remember you looking at me every now and then, smiling at me, even dancing with him. And suddenly I saw you with Peter. He had his arm around your shoulder and you had yours around his waist. You were coming upstairs” he gulped. “It looked… I got jealous. More than ever before. I thought you and I had something and I saw that and I snapped, I was hurt so I…looked for your friend” he admitted. “You saw the rest”
“It was first Peter’s party with us. His first time drinking alcohol” you explained. “He got too drunk too fast, what was I supposed to do? Leave him there?” You asked looking at him. He shook his head but still didn’t look at you. “Why didn’t you just talk to me?”
“I don’t know” he admitted. “It was stupid, I know and you have no idea how sorry I am” he added finally looking at you.
Immediately you looked away, not being ready to face those piercing blue eyes. You bite your lip as you considered what to do next. Everything had been a confusion but still, he had made out with your friend in your face and, according to his own words, he had done it just to hurt you. But he was hurt. For something that hadn’t happened but still, he was hurt. What would have you done if you were in his shoes? Probably the same. With a sigh, you looked at him to find him still looking at you.
“Why did you leave earlier?” You asked. He chuckled and sat up properly since he was leaned forward.
“Same reason I didn’t talk to you that night” he shrugged. “I was afraid of facing the truth. I didn’t want to face the fact that I had lost you for no reason at all” you nodded at his confession and looked at your hands. “I really am sorry. For…what I did with your friend and how I’ve been treating you ever since”, you laughed and looked at him.
“It’s not like I have make it easy for you” you shrugged.
“You had your reasons” he smiled a little and took some hair out of your face.
“Maybe but I should have talked to you sooner as well” you admitted. “I’m an idiot” you sighed.
“We’re both idiots” he smiled at you.
“But you were right about something” you said turning your body so you were facing him completely. He frowned a bit. “First, you and I had something” you said taking his hand in yours. He gulped looking down at it and then up to your eyes. “And second, I am crazy about you” you admitted.
He smiled widely at your words and moved a bit closer to you, still not really sure about this. He guessed you wanted it too but still, he didn’t want to screw up again. Not now, not ever. You bite your lip and straddled him, showing it was completely alright. You wanted him too. His hands moved to your hips to steady you as your arms wrapped around his neck, pulling him closer.
You had never been this close to him, you had never even kissed him. The chance had never been there. But there you were, inches away and somehow still hesitating. You looked into his eyes and then down at his lips. They were parted, letting his warm breath crash against your own mouth. You licked your lips leaning in a bit more but when he bite his bottom lip, you were done for. Immediately, you closed the tiny gap between you two and kissed him deeply. Putting into this kiss all the frustration you had gathered through the last few months, your hands pulled his hair lightly, earning a moan from him that made you smirk but didn’t pull away.
Bucky’s hands moved up and down your back, slipping under your t-shirt and caressing your skin, giving you goosebumps when his metal hand touched your skin. He moved it away for a moment but you took it and put it back against your skin. It was a part of him and you loved it. Eventually, you two pulled away, breathing fast as you pressed your forehead against his.
“We never got to kiss” you whispered. He chuckled a little and pecked your lips.
“We have time enough to make up for it” he replied opening his eyes to find you smiling.
“Then we should start with it” you smirked.
“What about that old people thing?” He teased. You laughed and pushed him so he was laying on the bed, with you on his top.
“Shut up and kiss me, Barnes” you commanded.
“As you wish” he whispered. With a hand on your neck, he pulled you down to his lips and kissed you again, not pulling away this time and rolling over so he was on your top as you took away his t-shirt.
