“Okay,” you reply distractedly, not bothering to look up from your laptop. The bright screen contrasts with the darkness of the room, illuminating the look of concentration on your face.
“I’ll be back soon.”
Your expression doesn’t waver when you reply with an, “Okay.“
Bucky stands in the doorway for a few extra seconds even though he’s already running late. He knows he should leave, but he can’t will himself to move. It takes a full minute for him to figure out why he has a nagging feeling that something’s off. He finally puts two and two together and he’s almost knocked off of his feet by the revelation.
We used to never go to bed angry But it’s all we ever do lately You’re turning away like you hate me Do you hate me, do you hate me? Oh
His shoulders were rigid as his back faced you. What had the fight that lead you here been about this time? Your loyalty to the pack? His constant need to control you? Or had it been something even more foolish like the dishes in the sink that had yet to be washed.
“Peter,” your voice sounds like a prayer as it breaks the silence that was tense with the anger that lasted hours after the end of the fight, “Peter?”
He shifts under the covers beside you, turning to give you a curious look, but there’s still that bite in his voice when he asks, “What?”
“I don’t want to leave it like this,” you say, sitting up to cross your legs as you face him, darkness of the bedroom hiding your face just enough to not feel the scrutiny of his eyes, “We can’t keep doing this.”
“Are you saying you want to end it?”
“I’m saying I want to know what you want.”
You can take this heart Heal it or break it all apart No, this isn’t fair Love me or leave me here Love me or leave me here Love me or leave me here
Request: Can you do a story with Ashton inspired by Little Mix’s Love Me or Leave Me? And can it be with a happy ending?
You used to tell me that you loved me once What happened, what happened? Where is all of this coming from? What happened, what happened?
A loud bang from the front door caused you to wake up. You sat up and checked the time and it was 3 am, as usual. You stood up and went downstairs to check up on him, knowing he was probably drunk again after partying with the boys.
As you reached your living room, you could see him struggling to untie his shoes. You walked neared him and untied it as he huffed in annoyance but let you anyways. As you removed his shoes you helped him stand up “Let’s go to sleep Ash.” he pulled away from you and walked to the room by himself. You sighed when you went to the room and found him already sleeping.
The next morning you woke up with Ash throwing up on your bathroom. You quickly grabbed some painkillers and a glass of water and handed it to him. He took it and drank it and gave the glass back to you. “You’ve been doing this for three straight nights Ash. It’s becoming unhealthy. You know I don’t mind you going out with the boys bu-” he glared at you as he cut you off. “It’s early in the morning Y/N. I don’’t need you nagging me! You’re just adding pain to my head.”
“Where is all of this coming from Ash? You’ve been so distant to me nowadays! When was the last time you said I love you to me? I just don’t get it! Why won’t you talk to me? What’s wrong?” he groaned “What do you want me to do Y/N? I love you! There I said it ! Are you happy now? Just leave me the fuck alone.” he scoffed as he walked away from you.
You say I’m crazy and there’s nothing wrong You’re lying and you know I know Baby what have we become? What happened?
The whole day passed and Ashton said sorry when he came home. You were both watching TV when you cuddled on his side and he stiffened. You looked up at him “Ash please… Can you tell me what’s wrong? We’re supposed to be in this together. I have no idea what’s going just please talk to me.”
“There’s nothing wrong Y/N. It’s all in your head. Just go back watching the show.” you pulled away from him “Ashton how can you tell me that this is all in my head when you barely touched me, you barely talked to me. This is far from what we used to be. I’m trying to save out relationship. What’s happening?”
He stood up and looked at you “Why can’t you just believe me that nothing’s wrong Y/N?” your lips trembled as you stood up to face him “Because I can see it on your eyes. Don’t you love me anymore?” he stared at you, his eyes wide, but never saying anything. You waited for him to answer but all you got was a long sigh.
We used to never go to bed angry But it’s all we ever do lately And you’re turning away like you hate me Do you hate me, do you hate me? Oh
After that night, all you ever do with Ashton was fight. He’s been more distant with you lately and sometimes he was even sleeping with the one of the boys instead of going home. Every night since then, all you ever did was cry yourself to sleep.
You didn’t have any idea what went wrong but the both of you knew it wouldn’t be fixed if you just ignored each other like you don’t exist. You tried talking to him, you really did but it pains you every time he walks away instead. You tried saving the only relationship with him left but he wasn’t even fighting for it and you were tired.
You were tired of sleeping with tear stains on your cheeks. You were tired of waiting for him wondering if he will even come home back to your arms. You were tired of missing him the boyfriend you loved all these years. You were tired fighting with him… for him. You grabbed your suitcases, knowing that this will be your last chance.
You can take this heart Heal it or break it all apart No, this isn’t fair Love me or leave me here
“W-what… Y/N? What are you doing?” you turned around and you saw your boyfriend standing on the doorway of your room. You kept quiet as you continued packing. He walked over to you and grabbed the clothes from your suitcases throwing it across the room.
“Ashton can you stop!” he hugged you tightly “Please don’t leave me please.” you pushed him away from his grip. “Ashton what do you want me to do? I’ve been trying to fix whatever we have left and you’re not even fighting for us. I don’t know where I stand in your life anymore! I don’t know if you still want me here. I’ve been trying to talk to you, asking you what’s wrong but all you ever do is just ignore me.”
You were now both crying as he held your face and wiped your tears. “Please baby I’m sorry. I love you and I know I’ve been a jerk these past few days but please trust me when I say I still love you.” you sighed as you held his hand that was holding your face.
“I just want us to get better Ash. I love you so much and I don’t want to leave either but I’m tired. I just want you to talk to me, that’s what we do right? We always talk to each other. I just don’t get what changed. This isn’t us.” he kissed your forehead as he whispered “I know baby I’m sorry please give me a chance.”
“I don’t know Ash…” he looked at you, his eyes pleading. “Please I know my words don’t mean to you anymore but if you don’t trust me anymore at least trust our love for each other. Please I’ll be more open now to you I promise.” you nodded “I’m not gonna leave you anymore Ash, but I need some time alone.”
Love me baby please cause I could still be the only one you need The only one close enough to feel you breathe Yeah I could still be that place where you run Instead of the one that you’re running from, ooh
He slept at the guest room after that. He gave you a long kiss on your forehead and whispered you goodnight. He thinks you didn’t notice when he sneakily grabbed your car keys and kept it in his pocket the whole time, scared that you’re gonna leave after he falls asleep.
The next morning, you woke up and walked to the kitchen with Ash cooking some breakfast. He smiled at you as he gave you a plate of the pancakes he made and bottle of your favorite syrup. He sat beside you after giving you a kiss on your forehead.
During the afternoon, the both of you watched reruns of your favorite TV show when slowly he reached for you hands and interlaced them with each other. You glanced at him “Is this alright?” you nodded and smiled at him. You could see him smiling and it was enough for you to be happy.
He left a few hours later to go to a meeting. You reassured him that you wouldn’t be leaving anytime soon as he kissed you goodbye. At night, you prepared some dinner for the both of you. After you set the table up, you heard the front door slam and suddenly you felt a pair of arms wrap you and lifted you up.
“I love you so so so much baby I am so sorry I just really love you so much.” you turned around to face him. “Ashton what’s wrong? Is everything okay?” he nodded. “Yes baby it’s just that I got problems with the management with our relationship. They didn’t allow me to date you anymore or come with me on tour and it’s been bothering me for weeks. I’m just so scared with everything that you’ll leave me and all and I kinda took it out on you but everything’s fixed now.”
You smiled at him. “I’m glad that whatever you had to deal with is fixed now Ash but please the next time you get problems please talk to me? I don’t want you to deal with this on your own. Okay?” he nodded enthusiastically. “Yes baby I promise. I love you so much please don’t ever leave me.” you kissed him on his lips “I would never again.”
