Contest Winner!!! Bucky Barnes Imagine- Tale As Old As Time Part 1
Tony had told me numerous times to stay out of the lab when he wasn’t in there. It wasn’t that he didn’t trust me, he just knew that I was extremely curious about his gadgets in the lab. I tried my best but sometimes it was just too much. Today was one of those days.
I was extremely bored and was wandering around the tower when I came across the door to Tony’s lab. I looked over both shoulders to make sure nobody was coming before going inside. My eyes immediately went over to the giant thing covered up with a massive tarp. Grabbing the tarp, I uncovered the machine and looked at it with disappointment.
It was a large metal circle that was sitting up right with the help of a base and a stand. All it had were some dinky looking lights around it. I was disappointed to say the least but still wanted to know what the contraption did. There was a small remote laying next to it so I grabbed it and started pressing buttons.
Nothing seemed to be happening and I was about to leave when I tripped over my own two feet and fell head first into the opening of the machine. I saw a bright flash and then it was over. A second later I was nose to nose with the asphalt.
After I got up and dusted myself off, I took in my surroundings. I was in an alley somewhere. My eyes grew wide as I realized that I wasn’t in the tower anymore. I jogged to where the alley met the street and stepped out into the sunshine. This couldn’t be happening.
The civilians were dressed completely different. There wasn’t a single person wearing casual clothes. All of the men wore suits and the women dresses or skirts. I heard swing music playing in the background and I gasped. I quickly tapped a man on the shoulder.
“Excuse me, I bumped my head. Do you think you could tell me the year?” I asked politely.
“Sure thing miss. It is 1941,” the man told me. “You okay?” He looked at me strangely and I noticed that it was because of my clothes. Women didn’t wear pants and t-shirts in this time.
“I’m doing swell. I have to go, excuse me please.”
I walked quickly away as I started to have a freaking panic attack. Tony had built a damn time machine! I really wish I would have listened to him now because I was stuck in 1941 with no way to get home. I started to run until I came to an empty bench in some park. Once I sat down I started to hyperventilate as I realized I was really all alone.
A hand came down on my shoulder and I jumped.
“Hey, calm down doll. Breathe with me here and it will be okay,” the guy said. That voice sounded familiar. I looked up and saw familiar blue eyes.
It was Bucky Barnes.
