(Bucky x Reader)
Thank you anonymous requester!
Reader has been secretly drawing Bucky for a long time, but can never seem to get his eyes just right. In frustration, one day she storms over to him and demands that he sit still so she can finally get his eyes right.
As an artist, you loved observing the diverse people who passed through, and lived in the Avengers tower. Ever since you joined the team about 3 months ago, you have had a keen interest in your team members eyes. They all held so much, and although you were able to read their thoughts, you felt you could learn so much more from simply looking into their eyes.
“Why can’t I just get them right?” You groaned to yourself as you rubbed your eraser aggressively against the paper of your sketch book.
You’re a talented artist, this shouldn’t have been difficult, but you could not draw Bucky’s eyes for the life of you. You tried day after day, but were unable to get them perfect, making you ever so frustrated. You scanned the room to see if he was nearby, but you couldn’t hear his thoughts. You hopped up off the couch and made your way to the place where Bucky could almost always be found, the gym. You opened the glass doors and he immediately caught your eye. You watched as he performed multiple different exercises, but couldn’t get a good view of those piercing blue eyes. You had had enough, you were going to get this right.
“Hey-” Before he could finish his sentence you interrupted him.
“Could you please sit still, for just like one minute, please.” You demanded.
“Uh, yeah forsure.” He sat up and grabbed his water bottle, enjoying his break.
All your teammates loved it when you drew them, it made them feel special.
“Thank you, y’know I just can’t get your eyes right and it drives me crazy. I hope this isn’t weird, I just-” You babbled, scribbling down on your paper.
“No, I love it.” He chuckled showing that beautiful smile you had drawn so many times before.
“Okay I think I finally got them!” You exclaimed in pure joy.
“Well let me see.” He inquired impatiently with his arms outstretched.
You passed him your sketch book and watched his eyes light up as he flipped through the pages.
“Wow Y/n, this is amazing!”
“You really think so?” He asked shyly.
“Absolutely! The amount of detail. Just fantastic.” He seemed to be in awe.
You were so pleased with yourself, until you remembered that you had whole page of drawings of you and Bucky together. You had a little crush on him ever since you joined the team, and you really expressed it through your drawings.
“Hey could I have that back I just remembered i have to prep for a mission?” You questioned frantically, if he ever saw those drawings you’d hate yourself.
“Oh my… Wow!” He stumbled on his words, you knew it was too late.
You remained silent as he examined the sketches intently. He ran his fingers over the lines you had drawn and a smile emerged on his face. You tried not to listen to his thoughts, but you couldn’t help but hear his happiness, not disgust to your surprise.
“I know you know what I’m thinking already, but I’m going to say it anyway. I am so relieved you have feelings for me, because you have no idea how long I’ve wanted to do this.”
Before you had the chance to react, his lips were against yours. He wrapped an arm around your waist and pulled away slowly, staring deeply into your eyes.
“That wasn’t too much was it?” He questioned nervously.
You could tell this was going to be the start of something good.
