Summary: Told in reverse-chronological order, Enouement is the story of love and loss, telling the journey that led you to your ultimate destination: a life full of happiness and regret, mistakes and laughter- and the man who gave you it all. Bucky x Reader
Bucky paced back and forth, the wooden floors creaking under his weight. He resolved himself of his fidgeting hands by swiping up a bottle of Heineken from the mini-fridge in the corner, barely noticing as Steve slid through door and closed it carefully behind him.
“Hey,” Steve breathed, brows furrowed. Bucky’s jacket was still unbuttoned, tie around his neck undone and hair disheveled from running his hand through it too many times. “You doin’ okay?”
“I can’t stand still,” Bucky admitted, staring at his reflection in the full length mirror. “Can you help me with this thing?” He gestured lazily to his tie and Steve chuckled, moving toward him to help. He took the beer from Bucky’s hands, setting it to the side as he grabbed either end of the tie, carefully knotting it as Bucky buttoned up his jacket.
