so sirens are a thing apparently and I wouldn’t have known if I hadn’t walked in on one (looking like me) trying to seduce you. I don’t get it. what did it want with you and why the hell did it look like me? you hate me? (feat Bucky Barnes)
“James Buchanan Barnes, what the hell is going on with you?” As soon as you and your flatmate are alone, you turn to glare at him. “You could have cost us the whole mission!”
“Look, I didn’t do it on purpose! How the fuck am I supposed to know a siren, of all things, would seduce me! Before tonight, I didn’t even know what the fuck a siren was,” he rolls his eyes, slowly taking off his mask along with his other accessories.
“So you didn’t know she was a siren when you were kissing her under the stars? You don’t say?!” You take off your gloves and throw it at him, forcing him to turn around and look at you. “And you know that’s not why I’m grilling you.”
“So then why–?”
“I’m grilling you because she was me!” You walk up to Bucky, screaming in his face by this point.
“Y/N, Mr. Stark was wondering–”
“Friday, turn off all communication with the main tower, please. You can turn it back on in the morning,” you command the AI and he does as you request.
“So what?” You turn back to Bucky, giving him an incredulous look.
“So. What? Are you serious, James? Sirens only take on the forms of people you hold dear, of people you can be easily seduced by. Why the hell did that siren knock me out and take on my form?” You poke a finger against Bucky’s chest, demanding answers and all he does is scoff angrily.
“What, you think I’m into you or something, doll?” He chuckles, his chest vibrating with every breath. “Let me save you some time and breath and tell you that I’m not. I don’t like you. I’m not attracted to you. I couldn’t care less about you. Does that answer all your questions? Do you still think I-?”
You cut him off with a slap to the face and leave him stunned. He finally notices the angry, unshed tears in your eyes before you walk away, heart wrenching in his chest as you slam the door to your room and go on to ignore him for the next week.
“Ah, Y/N,” Tony looks you up and down, shrugging before handing you a drink. “At least you came in a costume.”
“What, the others didn’t?” You take the drink and down it all in one go, Tony giving you a questioning look.
“No, they didn’t. I sent them back to change, they should be back soon,” he watches you, handing you another drink and you down that one, too. “Alright, spill it kid. What’s bothering you?”
“It’s nothing alcohol won’t help,” you give him a smile and kiss his cheek. “Now excuse me, I’m gonna head into the crowd of friends you’ve invited and find myself a sugar daddy.”
“Y/N,” Tony rolls his eyes as you grab another drink and head to the crowd, shaking his head as worry sets over him.
Bucky walks in dressed as Batman. His eyes immediately scour the room looking for you, hoping that he’d finally have a chance to at least see you. Tony eyes him and sees you laughing with one of his colleagues. He turns around to tell Bucky off, but the others arrive, all in full costume per Tony’s demands. Once he hands everyone a drink, he tells them to go mingle and turns back around to look for you.
Bucky has the same idea in my mind. Only neither of them can see you. Just as panic begins to set in, you pop up with a slight smirk on your face.
“Looking for something?” You chuckle softly as you approach the two men.
“Yeah, you, actually. Where did you disappear off to?” Tony furrows his brows, sensing something off, as Bucky gawks at you.
“Well I was talking to your friends, but they were kinda boring,” you shrug and grab another drink.
“Are you not drunk yet, Y/N?” Tony questions, but you’ve turned to face Bucky, straw in your mouth as he gulps.
“Are you thirsty, Buck?” You hold your drink out to him, licking your lips as he watches you. “Have some of my drink.”
Behind you, the gears in Tony’s head are spinning. He realizes this isn’t you. He’s just not sure how to relay the message to Bucky without alerting what he believes to be the siren.
Bucky, however, has also found out. While this sired was doing a damn good of distracting Bucky (and everyone else), she was doing a horrible job of being you. So while Tony starts scrambling in the back, Bucky smiles and leads her towards the terrace.
“Terrace, huh? That’s surpri-”
This time, Bucky cuts her off with a punch to the face, and by now, the whole team has gathered outside. Wanda and Vision offer to lock this one up while Bucky and Tony scramble to find you. They look all over the tower and come up empty handed.
“Hell, Stark. Where the hell could she have gone?” Bucky growls out, angry at both himself and at Tony for not keeping an eye on you.
“I’ve got no idea, Barnes, but god do I hope she’s okay. She was tipsy and upset and damn it I knew something was wrong, I just–”
“Guys?” You yawn and rub your eyes, wobbling in from the terrace.
“Y/N,” Bucky breathes out a sigh of relief, running over to you and picking you up bridal style.
“What the hell happened?” You yawn, absentmindedly snuggling against Bucky to warm yourself up.
“You, uh, you–”
“It was another siren,” Tony whispers and you immediately lift your head up, looking at the two men. “Bucky subdued this one and Wanda and Vision have locked her or it or whatever away for further investigation.”
“A, her. Sirens are all women. B, again?” You turn to look at a guilty Bucky. “For fuck’s sake, will you just–?”
“I’m going to take her to our place, she’ll get some proper rest and I’ll be sure to keep you guys updated. If you hear any loud angry noises, it’s probably Y/N protesting any sort of rest,” Bucky nods towards Tony who laughs as you begin protesting already.
Bucky ignores your anger, gritting his teeth every time you send a comment his way. As soon as you two enter your place, however, all of that goes flying out the door.
“Friday, cut all communication to the main tower. Tell Tony I got her here safe, and she’ll be resting,” Bucky puts you on the ground and stares you down. You try to hold your own, but the second he takes a step towards you, you try to take a step back and your knee buckles under you.
“Easy, princess,” Bucky grabs you before you can fall, his arms tightening around you as you gasp, watching the man in front of you in awe. “You wanted answers?”
You nod, unable to trust your voice due to the proximity.
“Here’s something: I lied the other night. I really fucking like you. I am so attracted to you. I care about you.I could watch you all day and I’d still crave more of you. And god damn, Y/N,” Bucky shakes his head as you watch him, unable to look away. “You’re killing me tonight, both because of how you’re dressed but also because Tony told me you were looking for a sugar daddy?”
You laugh softly as Bucky gives you a questioning glance.
“I don’t quite know what that is and to be honest, I’m not sure I want to know. I can already tell that unless I’m your sugar daddy, I won’t like it,” his final words surprise you and you burst out laughing, Bucky still holding you as he awaits an answer to his unasked question.
“James, a sugar daddy is a generally older man who gives a younger woman money for her time and affection,” you chuckle as Bucky’s eyes grow wide and he’s left speechless. “And thank you for that confession. I really like you, too.”
Bucky’s eyes light up, his grin expanding as you smile softly up at him. He looks at you playfully and you raise a brow at him as he starts to speak.
“Well, I could-I mean I could still be your sugar daddy. Technically, I’m pretty fucking old,” he shrugs you nod easily, pretending to be deep in thought.
You wrap your arms around his neck, loving this caring, honest, protective side of Bucky. His arms tighten around your waist and he looks at you with a raised brow as you lean over, a small smirk on your face.
“How about we just start with daddy for now?”
