moonriver + 18. “things you said when you were scared”
Moon the Undaunted, scared. What a laugh. What could Mewni’s dauntless queen ever be afraid of? How ironic it was that Mewni’s bravest queen had many fears— more than she could count on both hands. Most of them were petty fears, of mice and heights and things the common citizen didn’t quite care for either. But she always believed there was a very prominent difference between instinctive fear and genuine fright.
And now, she was scared.
So scared she felt as if she was about to fall over and faint.
I have to start by thanking you all for your patience, I know I’ve been really slow in updating this one and writing a lot of other stuff in between. My muse is fickle and doesn’t always go where I need her to go. But I am determined to finish this story so if you stick with me we’ll get there, eventually ;)
Now, where were we?
Story: After finding each other again Bucky and Jess spend the night together but things don’t really go as planned. When Bucky shuts down Jess has no choice but to call in Steve to help her.
No warning, just a lot of angst and feels and some fluff.
Jess woke up gasping for air, heart racing and hands shaking, sweat all over her forehead. For a moment she had no idea where she was, nothing about this small dark room felt familiar but then it all came back.
He was sitting on the floor next to the mattress with his back against the wall. Jess kneeled down beside him. His entire body was shaking and he was staring out in front of him with a look of sheer horror on his face.
‘Bucky,’ her sigh was heavy and filled with compassion. She reached out to touch his face but he pushed her hand away.
‘Don’t touch me!’ he snapped.
He wrapped his arms around his knees and started shaking even harder. He turned his face away from her, avoiding her eyes so she wouldn’t see his tears.
‘Bucky, it’s okay,’ she whispered.
‘Okay?! I could have killed you!’ he shook his head in protest.
‘But you didn’t, I’m fine, see?’ she insisted.
He didn’t say another word, nor did he look at her.
Jess stayed beside him and they both sat in silence for a while, Bucky was still shaking and showing no signs of calming down. His forehead was covered in cold sweat and his lip was trembling. She wanted to wrap her arms around him and convince him she was fine and he hadn’t hurt her, but she was afraid to touch him again.
She couldn’t think of another way to calm him down and she didn’t want to leave him alone here so she did the only thing left to do. She reached for her phone and searched for the number.
‘Steve? I’m sorry to call you this late, I don’t know what else to do.’
