Crushes. oh those lovely sweet little time periods where you are attracted to someone. those butterflies, stealing glances, all the blushing; becomes too much to bear after a while. perhaps they called it crushes because they literally crushed you.

Bucky was in a turmoil. his crush on you had lasted way longer than he would have wanted and he was getting impatient. he couldn’t stop thinking about you! you were the only thing on his mind, the only thing he would fantasize about.

that day was no different. Bucky occupied the table with Steve in the common room. with his face resting in his hands he was looking around lazily while he waited for Steve to finish reading his newspaper. Steve always read the paper after they both had trained while Bucky would just laze around for a while. Bucky’s eyes suddenly fell on you and the boring room seemed to have gotten more brighter. you were laughing on something with Natasha, as you drank some water.

Bucky groaned internally, or he thought he did. Steve rolled up the newspaper and smacked him in the head with it.

‘ow!’ he rubbed his head. ‘what was that for?’ he furrowed his brows.

‘stop groaning and just go ask her out!’ Steve threw his arms in the air in exaggeration.


‘yeah, it’s getting out of hand. ask her out or I will do it for you.’ he crossed his arms.

‘oh, the hell you wont, punk.’ Bucky pointed a finger at him.

‘you know what?’ he quirked his brows. ‘go ask her right now, I dare you.’

‘the fuck I will.’ he stood up and turned to him again. ‘watch me, bitch.’

he strutted to you, till half way. then it dawned on him, what if you said no? what if you just wanted to be friends? WHAT IF YOU SAW HIM AS A BROTHER FIGURE?!

Steve was both enjoying and pitying the discomfort of his best friend.

‘good morning, sugar cube!’ you greeted Bucky and his stomach flipped. he wasn’t used to such sweet nicknames used for him. he especially loved this one you had invented, it was silly and lovely.

it was too late to back down now, the assassin had to make the move.

‘ good morning, doll.’ he managed to say casually. ‘so, um, how are you?’

‘great, worked out with Nat but still good.’ you said and earned a nudge in the ribs from the redhead. ‘sorry woman, but you tried to kill me there.’ you said and Bucky laughed while Natasha rolled her eyes.

‘whatever.’ she waved it off. ‘you wanted something, Barnes?’ she crossed her arms and leaned on the kitchen counter.

‘um, yeah, (y/n)-’ Bucky struggled with the words while Steve kept chanting ‘do it, do it damn it, say it buck, say it…’ in the background to himself. ‘can you help me with my phone?” he blurted out and Steve banged his hand on the table. you all looked in his direction and he blamed the news for his behaviour.

‘sure, tell me when.’ you smiled and left. Natasha shook her head at Bucky. ‘so close, dumbass.’ she said before following you. Bucky sighed and turned to Steve who gave him a “bitchface”.

Bucky was lying on his bed thinking about you would slip away from his hands like sand if he didn’t take any quick action. but what could he do!? he couldn’t think straight around you, having a full conversation was a thing of some other universe. he sighed and tossed in his bed. he was thinking of the many ways of expressing his feelings until his eyes fell on his notepad. he knew what he had to do.

‘can I tell her?’ Natasha whispered to Steve. all the avengers were enjoying a night off watching a film, more like fighting over what to watch but you can get the idea.

‘no.’ Steve shook his head. ‘Buck wouldn’t like that, he needs to do it on his own.’

‘i’ll tell her.’ she stomped her foot. she was tired of seeing Bucky looking at you like a love sick puppy.

‘do you want him to kill us all?’ he asked with a serious face. she groaned and sat back in his seat.

‘(y/n)!’ Bucky called out as he entered the room. all eyes including yours landed on him.

‘ooh, he’s gonna do it.’ Natasha whispered to Steve excitedly and got a grin in response.

‘Bucky, what are you doing?’ you stood up.

‘is he going crazy?’ tony theatrically whispered to Bruce. He slapped his shoulder in response.

‘don’t be ridiculous.’ Bruce said.

‘that’s it, he’s losing his mind.’ Sam shook his head. Bucky shot him a glare to shut him up. he didn’t want to beat up anyone right now.

‘I-I,’ he cleared his throat and looked in the flash cars he had prepared. everyone was confused as to what the former assassin was doing. he took a deep breath and smiled at you. ‘hey, (y/n) I just wanted to say that I like you. a lot and I cant say it’ he read the cards out loud. ‘so I was wondering if-’ he was fumbling with the cards as they all fell. ‘oh shit.’ he cursed and tried to pick them up. ‘you’re so pretty….’ he said in a meek voice and your heart melted.

‘OH MY GOD.’ you grinned and he looked at you. ‘that was so cute, I could fuck you on spot right now!’ you crossed your arms.

‘I don’t have a card for that…..’ he blinked. you shook your head on his adorableness and ran up to hug him. he melted in your embrace.

‘you’re so cute.’ you kissed his cheek and cupped his face.

‘so you’ll go out with me?’ he asked and you chuckled.

‘of course, sugar.’ you caressed his cheeks.

‘that’s my boy!!’ Steve hollered. ‘sugar cube to sugar, nice!’ he crossed his arms. all the avengers were soon to follow in the teasing game.

‘finally.’ Natasha sighed in relief.

The Things We Want



“What do you want?” I demand as I spun around to confront the figure that had been following me all the way home.
It didn’t say anything for a few seconds, just stood in the shadows before the broad shouldered silhouette stepped into the light.
I recognized him instantly.
“Sehun?” I asked, confused as to why it’d be him. “What are you doing here?”
He looked at me for a moment before speaking.
“I needed to make sure you were okay,” he said and took a step closer.
“Why wouldn’t I be?” I asked and took a step back.
“Because they know who you are now,” he said with a harsher more urgent voice.
“What are you talking about?!” I yelled.
“You don’t understand,” he yelled back. He grabbed my throat and pushed me against the wall. For a second I thought i caught a glimmer of something in his eyes. The moment my back hit the wall he realized what he’d done and released my neck. “I’m sorry. But you don’t understand.”
“What’s wrong?” I asked hesitantly.
Sehun bit his lip, and fell forward, stopping himself by shooting his arms out on either side of me.
I stood froze against the brick wall as he slowly lifted his head. His eyes seemed alight amongst the darkness.
*8 hours earlier*
“Mina,” Teresa yelled as she ran up to me.
“Hey Tess,” I replied.
“What are you going to wear tonight?” She asked with a big smile.
“What the hell are you talking about?” I asked a little confused. She couldn’t be refering to my tutoring Sehun could she?
“The date with Sehun.”
“It’s not a date. I’m just helping him with his essay, that’s all,” I said trying to get through to her.
“Well if you do something for him, maybe he’ll do something for you,” she said with a suggestively immature nod.
“Oh my god. Goodbye Tess.”
“Wait, tell me you’ll at least touch his thigh or something!” She yelled as I walked away for everyone to hear.
I went to the coffee shop that Sehun wanted to meet at a few hours later. It was dark out and a light dusting of snow began to fall. I pulled out my binder and did somemore homework as I waited, not getting any coffee until he arrived.
I heard the door open, and my head shot up expecting Sehun to walk through the door.
A boy about an inch or two taller than me walked in. He had almost white hair that made his skin look very tan. His eyes were big and dark. He didn’t walk towards me, but his eyes lingered on me, making my spine shiver.
I quickly looked away and went back to my work, and the boy disappeared as quickly as he had appeared. It was a about 15 minutes until Sehun finally showed up. He had on a big structured wool jacket, and a big fluffy knitted scarf. His gold blonde hair was falling in his face, but he hastily ran his fingers through it.
He looked around for a moment before spotting me.
“Thanks for coming Mina,” he said and flopped down on the chair.
“No problem. Did you bring your essay?” I asked.
“Yeah,” he said and reached into his posh leather backpack. I took the paper and put it on the table.
“Want to get something to drink first?” I asked and stood up.
“No,” he said disinterested.
I furrowed my brows lightly, but didn’t ask why he didn’t want any.
“Just me than,” i said and walked towards the counter.
I got a black coffee. Then we started on the essay. Sehun had taken off his jacket and scarf, revealing a fited black t-shirt. I noticed most of the girls in the shop glancing in our direct. He did look good, a naturally blessed person in both looks and physicality, Sehun was kind of considered a prize catch for every girl at our school. But he was not a gifted student. I was considered the book worm of our grade, so it didn’t surprise me much when he asked for help on his essay.
After about two hours of working on the paper, and trying to explain his mistakes and how he could express himself better.
“Thank you Mina,” he said with a lovely smile, that made his cheeks all cubby. I thought it was kind of cute.
“You’re welcome,” I said cheerfully and held out my hand.
He glanced at my hand, before completely ignoring it, and taking my in his arms. It wasn’t an intense hug, but it was a little awkward. It definitely wasn’t something you did with someone you barely knew.
Then we left. That’s when it happened. I was walking across the street, the opposite direct of Sehun. The light was green for me, but someone else didn’t seem to notice that. I was half through when it bombed around the corner. With not enough time to think I dropped my things and stood petrified light a deer jn headlights. I waited as the lights came closer.
But then I was on the side walk. Flat on my back. I opened my eyes and saw Sehun’s face looking down on me. We stared at each other for a few moments. Both a little shocked by what had just happened.
Sehun opened his mouth to speak, but it was clear he was trying to find the words. I waited with baited breath. My breath got heavy as I fully realized his position on top of my. I felt a blush rise to my cheeks. I saw it on his face too.
“Watch where you’re going,” was all he said. Then he got up and kept walking. I kept laying a the snow crusted ground, feeling the snowflakes melt beneath me. I got up after a few minutes.
Then car had kept driving, probably a drunk driver too busy to notice all the things that didn’t happen.
I picked up my books, dusting them off, taking a few deep breathes as I picked up each one. My hand were shaking, not from the cold, or the near death experience. When I had gathered myself together. I started walking home.
That’s when I noticed someone following me.
“Everything’s fine, you just need to calm down,” I said putting a hand on his chest, hoping to push him away.
“Don’t tell me to calm down,” he snarled and pushed off the wall. He paced back and forth in front of me. “Why didn’t you just look where you were going, huh?”
“Sehun, what the fuck are you talking about?” I asked, getting frustrated with his lack of his communication.
His back was to me when I said this. He looked over his shoulders, the eerie glow to his eyes.
He turned around and before I could comprehend it, he was up against me. “I’m talking about this,” he said as his eyes lingered on my lips. My heart began to race, my cheeks flushed, my eyes grew. “I’ve known about you for a long time Mina. I’m supposed to. Unfortunately, so does my family.”
“What-” I just got out before his lips came down on mine, the sexual tension too much to resist. He lips were hard as his had slipped up and grasped my cheek. It was an intense kiss, our lips shocking the other with each movement, but it didn’t last long. He ripped himself away, clearly holding something back.
“Go home Mina. Don’t come this way anymore. It’s not safe anymore,” he said and walk off. All this leaving me completely confused.
