Pairing:18-year old! Steve Rogers x fem!reader
Summary: Steven Rogers is searching for Bucky’s new apartment and ends up knocking the wrong door.
A/N: AU obviously…And I’m sorry…
Y/N woke up because someone was knocking on her door. Rubbing her eyes,she glanced at the clock on the nightstand; midnight. She usually went to bed after one o'clock but that specific night,she was too tired from work to stay up late.
The bangs on the door didn’t seem to stop. For one moment,she caught herself thinking that behind her apartment’s door was a kidnapper or something. However,she got up and trying not to make any noise,she walked all the way to the door.
“Who is it?” She asked,one hand on the doorknob,the other on the key.
“Um…It’s Steve…” She heard a man say. Steve? She didn’t know any Steve. Something about his voice though made her unlock the door within seconds. When her half open eyes fell on the man in front of her,they widened;damn he was handsome. He seemed too awkward for a kidnapper.
“How can i help you…Steve?” She asked and yawned loudly,putting her hand on her mouth.
Steve wanted to disappear at that very moment. Bucky had given him the wrong apartment number. He had knocked the wrong freakin’ door.
“I’m so sorry…” He paused,waiting for the beautiful girl to give him her name.
“Y/N.” She finished the sentence for him and Steve nodded,giving her a small smile.
“Y/N,right!Um…My best friend got a new apartment and he told me it was number 35 but i think i must have misheard…” He said, giving her a false smile,his hand rubbing the back of his neck.
The girl snorted and shook her head.
“Barnes…” She said between her teeth but Steve heard.
“That’s his name,yes!” He almost shouted and Y/N nodded again,this time getting what was up.
“He’s right next door.” She pointed at the apartment with the number 36 on it.
“This asshole must have intentionally given you the wrong number. He’s the condo’s prankster,you see…”
“He is?” Steve asked, surprised. He was definitely having a conversation with Bucky about it later.
“Yeah! And he’s only been here for a week! We’ve a long way to go Steve…”
They both laughed,their voices being heard through the hall. After a few minutes, they died down and Y/N looked at Steve’s blue eyes in question.
“Why are you visiting Barnes now? Something you remembered and you couldn’t say through a simple phone call?”
Steve opened and closed his mouth several times,nothing coming out. He didn’t know what to tell her. That he was on a mission and came to inform Bucky about the progress he had made? No,defintely not an option.
Y/N noticed how uneasy he seemed and chuckled softly.
“Relax,you don’t have to tell me…”
Steve let out a shaky breath but nodded.
“Anyway,it was a pleasure meeting you Y/N. I’m so sorry for waking you up!” Steve said after a while,realizing that he had been staring at her looks for way too long. But it was okay. She had been doing the same thing.
“The pleasure is all mine Steve. And don’t worry about it,it was worth it. I finally got to meet Bucky’s crazy best friend.” She said,shaking the hand he had extended to her.
“How do you know i’m crazy?” Steve asked,laughing a little. He had been talking with her for almost fifteen minutes and he swore it was the best fifteen minutes of his life. She was so interesting,her voice drawing him more and more as she spoke.
“Well,only a madman would hang out with Bucky Barnes…” She smirked,her hand still touching his. She slowly pulled away,not feeling really comfortable all of a sudden.
Steve started laughing and Y/N joined him once again.
“I’m obviously kidding. Bucky is a really nice guy and so are you. And don’t ask me why,i just know.”
Steve wanted to tell her that she could always go out with him and figure him out. Get to know him better. In order to confirm that he was a good guy. But he didn’t manage to speak his mind because Bucky’s head peered out of his apartment’s door.
“Are you coming or what?” He asked,a smirk almost recognizable on the corner of his lips.
“Uh,yeah,sure.” He mumbled,confused.
“Hi Bucky fucky little ducky!” Y/N shouted-not really caring about the rest of the people living in the condo sleeping- and waved at her neighbor. Bucky waved back at her.
“Long time no see,chicken!” He laughed as he motioned Steve to come over.
Y/N shook her head,not wanting to answer her new friend,not wanting to start a fight with him.
“Goodnight Steve!” She said to the guy who was walking away. Steve turned around and gave her a smile so beautiful that made her heart stop beating for a few moments.
“G'night Y/N…” Was all she heard him say before getting back to her apartment,not really sure she would go back to sleep. Damn you Barnes… Damn you and your handsome oh so hot best friend…
“Were you eavesdropping the whole time?” Steve asked as he made his way to Bucky’s living room.
“Maybe. Maybe not.”
“Did you tell me to knock on her door on purpose?”
“Maybe. Maybe not.”
Steve crossed his arms on his chest,looking intently at Bucky.
“Okay,okay! I did!” He finally spilled,throwing his hands in the air.
“Well…She seems really nice.”
As soon as he spoke,Bucky put an arm around Captain America’s shoulder,squeezing him.
“That’s what i thought…”
