Worth The Pain
Pairing: Steve x Reader
Requested by: @girl-next-door-writes
Hello sweetie, when you have a little time do you think you could write me some fluffy awkward Steve? Something along the lines of Reader and Steve being friends and then one day he realises he actually wants to be more than friends and all of a sudden doesn’t know how to act around them or what to say and Bucky picks up on it and hatches a plan to get them together? Thank you xx
A/n: I hope you like this and that I did your idea justice. I had a bit of trouble writing this one. Please let me know what you think! Requests are open! Also accepting prompts.
You had always been best friends with Steve, you have also always had feelings for him. It was no secret everyone knew about your feelings, even Steve. He never outright mentioned that he knew of your feelings, and you never mentioned them because it was quite obvious that he didn’t feel the same. You tried to get over your feelings for him and you both maintained a great friendship.
That was until you decided to take a chance and accept a date with a shield agent you had happened to meet through Bucky. When you had finished getting ready for your date you walked into the living room of the tower doing a twirl to show off your dress to the boys.
“What do you think?” You grin at the two of them, smoothing your dress down. Both men looked up at you and were sporting equally large grins.
“You goin’ out with Nat and Wanda again?” Steve asked a confused look on his face. He didn’t remember you telling him you were going out.
“Nope I have a date.” You smile slightly. Bucky watched Steve closely seeing how he would take this turn of events. He had always been the biggest supporter of the two of you getting together. He knew Steve didn’t say he returned your feelings but he had this feeling in his gut Steve was hiding his true feelings.
Bucky watched the emotions play on Steve’s face. First there was shock, then confusion, then a bit of jealousy. You of course didn’t notice. You were in the mirror fusing with your hair. You looked at your watch and grabbed your purse, yelling a goodbye to the boys over your shoulder.
When you had left the room Bucky looked over at Steve. He had a feeling he would get this reaction. Steve was staring at the tv clearly lost in thought. “You okay pal?”
Steve responded with a gruff, “fine” and went back to watching his show.
