Steve always thought of himself to be a good and quick learner. With almost everything really. Almost. He still didn’t quite grasp the whole idea of social media, and the slang of it yet. You tried so hard to teach him the in and outs but he didn’t really get it. However you had to admit, the questions he asked made you laugh. He was still so innocent at heart.
“Y/N whats a snapchat?” Steve once said too you in a serious tone before you could burst out laughing. He was always asking for you guys to take a selfie, plus while texting he always sent you various emojis that didn’t quite make sense. But you still couldn’t help but giggle when reading them.
One thing you did admire about Steve is that he tried, and that’s what you loved most about him. You had feelings for the tall blonde for a while now, but just never choose to act on them, knowing he might not feel the same.
You and Steve had a late night at the bar hanging out with some of his friends and you had just gotten to the Avengers home.
“Steve, can you please check what time it is?” You asked with a smile, taking off your sneakers. Steve quickly reached your matte black iPhone turning it on.
His eyes went wide when he saw a candid picture of him on your phone’s lock screen. It was the time you guys went to the park, and you had your camera on you. So, you kept snapping photos of him and the one on your lock screen was your favorite out of all of them.
So many questions entered his head at once. Did you have short-term memory loss, that you needed a picture of him to remind you who he was?? Is the robot in your phone messing with him? He remembered that one time when the robot, Siri came on accidentally and he got so scared he threw your phone across the room. But, right now Steve was just so confused.
“Steve?” you called out his name. He was in his own little world. Once he heard your voice, his eyes immediately darted to you.
“Oh, uh, it’s 11:00 PM. I’m going to go to bed, goodnight!” He quickly yelled out before you can say anything leaving your phone on the floor.
Steve reached his room and paced back and forth. He tried going sleep but just didn’t understand why he was on your phone. Did you have bad eyesight?? That’s why you needed a picture of him? So you could see what he looks like up close? He just didn’t get it. He got ready for bed, and soon his overthinking caused him to drift asleep.
Steve woke up early in the morning and headed to the kitchen. He saw Clint sitting on one of the stools, eating breakfast.
“Hey,” Clint called out.
“Hey, can I ask you a question?” Steve hesitated to ask, remembering about last night.
Steve went closer to Clint sitting on the stool next to him.
“So, (Y/N) asked me to check the time on their phone, and I saw they have a picture of me on their lock screen… I think its called?” Steve rambled before continuing,
“Anyway, do they have like bad vision?? That they need a clearer picture of me, I am just so confused, like why am I on their phone?” he spoke using hand gestures before ultimately sighing.
Clint let out a small chuckle before smirking.
“You do realize (Y/N) having you on their lock screen is a compliment right?”
Steve dumbfounded, raised an eyebrow.
“Look, dude, they like your face. And if they like your face, they probably like you. They aren’t secretly hunting you down, and last time I checked (Y/N) has 20/20 vision…”
Steve’s mouth formed an ‘o’ before thanking Clint and going back to his room.
Did (Y/N) really like him back? Steve has always had a thing for you ever since you guys got super close. The feelings really hit once you both started hanging out just together without anyone else. But how could Steve tell you how he felt?
You woke up later in the afternoon, and everyone was up. You groaned brushing your teeth and looking at yourself in the mirror. You tried fixing your hair to look somewhat presentable before stepping out into the world.
Steve quickly barged into your room, with his iPhone in his hand. You smiled leaving the bathroom and sitting on the edge of your bed.
“Whats up?” You asked, slightly biting your lip. Steve smirked, trying to look for your phone.
You raised an eyebrow, as he looked through your desk before finding the matte phone. He turned it on and faced the phone towards you so you could see the lock screen you had.
Your eyes went wide. You forgot to take the picture off but you liked it too much. And it also meant he saw it last night.
“So, you like me?” Steve asked very bluntly as your face heated up.
“Uh..” You said, your eyes trying to avoid him.
Steve handed you his old iPhone, as you took it confusingly.
“(Y/N) what time is it?” He asked. You took the phone in your hands and powered it on.
You smiled once you saw the picture of you on his lock screen. It was the day you guys went out to eat at a diner, and you got ketchup all over your face. Steve adored the picture, while you hated it.
“It took me while to figure out how to get your face onto there, until Sam literally had to show me,” Steve rambled fidgeting with his fingers.
“Is this your way of saying you like me too?” You smirked, as Steve walked towards you leaning over you.
“Who knew technology would be so helpful in getting two people together,” he laughed. As he cupped your cheek and before you know it, he was kissing you.
“Also, you aren’t a hitman, right? Just trying to make sure..” He muttered between kisses, as you chuckled, happy in his arms.
