I’m a Survivor (Part 5)
Bucky x Reader
Summary – The reader is more of a scholar/lab rat (highly intelligent, knows something about everything and maybe a bit of a know-it-all). She prefers the shelter Stark Tower offers her rather than joining in on the action whenever there’s a new mission. Fury knows she once got beaten up pretty bad, even ended up in the hospital, and gives her a pass each and every time (the others don’t mind but are a bit disappointed). She has been on guard ever since, ashamed of her scarred body and counting her blessings ‘cause she’s still alive. But when she finds herself all alone in the tower yet again, she decides that something needs to be done and asks Bucky for some lessons in self-defense.

Notes – Here’s some angst, just ‘cause I like to torture you! I still have a few more parts in store for this fic, so don’t think that this is the end!! As always, feedback is always appreciated. Feel free to drop me ask letting me know what you think!
With the team gone, you were still lonely, but it wasn’t as bad as before. You had a sense of purpose now. You spent a few hours a day working out in the gym, building up your strength in preparation for Bucky’s next lesson.
The biggest accomplishment came on an average Thursday morning. You pulled your hoodie over your head and pushed open the ornate glass door in front of you. The streets of New York were bustling with people heading to work. You quietly slipped into the throng, breathing in the distinct scents of New York in the fall. You had no destination in mind. For right now, the journey was enough.

“You’re still dropping your guard on the jabs,” Bucky pointed out as the two of you were sparring in the training room. “Here let me show you.”
Bucky walked behind you and took your hands in his. He held your left hand up and close to your chin while his right hand guided yours in the jab. The forward motion of the jab brought him flush against your back causing heat to shoot straight down through you.
