Say You Won’t Let Go
Pairing: Bucky Barnes x Reader
Based off of James Arthur’s song “Say You Won’t Let Go”.
A/N: This song gave me huge Bucky feels when I first listened to it. So here you go. Also, this is pretty lengthy, so bear with me.
Warning: mentions of depression
Your best friend, Bucky, well…he was in a dark place. Now that’s not uncommon for college students. Statistics show that it’s very common for young adults ranging from 18 to 25 to fall into a depression. Bucky was one of those young adults.
He felt like he wasn’t good enough. He was struggling to get by, academically and financially. He started to lack motivation in going to classes and getting out of bed. He just wanted to sleep the days away.
But you were having none of it. During some of his darkest days, you were there to light him up. Although it didn’t really make the depression go away, it made him forget the pain with the constant temporary moments of happiness.
You came bursting into his apartment, “Luuuucyyy, I’m hoooome!” You announced. You dropped your bag and keys onto a nearby table and listened for any sign of Bucky. He was probably in his room. So you briskly walked over there and cautiously opened the door. Bucky was sprawled out on his bed staring at the ceiling. You ran over to him and plopped your entire being onto his stomach.
“Oomf! Whyyyy?” Bucky whined.
“Happy birthday, you dork.”
Bucky sighed and mumbled, “Thanks.”
You climbed off him and made your way to his closet looking through his clothes, “Let’s get you dressed. I have plans for you.”
Bucky groaned, “Can’t we just stay here and watch tv or something?”
You scoffed, “Psh. No. We’re going out.” You picked out a white t-shirt, black jeans, and Bucky’s favorite black leather jacket. You threw them at him, “Get ready. We’re leaving in ten.”
