The first time Steve tried to talk to him about Bucky, Tony just stared at him over the rim of his coffee cup until he got the picture and walked away. But later, when Tony was dragging himself up the stairs after forty straight hours in the lab, he saw Bucky curled up on the couch, all but hidden in baggy clothes and staring into the darkness.
“JARVIS, see if he wants to watch something on TV,” Tony said as he fell into bed, fully dressed.
“Yes, sir. Any suggestions?”
“I don’t know.” What would a traumatized amnesic supersoldier want to watch? Documentaries? Cooking shows? “Put on that show with the rescue dogs and the inmates,” Tony said finally, and passed out without hearing JARVIS answer.
Six hours later a breakthrough idea for the lab had him rolling out of bed and heading back down the stairs. Passing by the living room, he paused when he saw that Bucky was still watching television in almost exactly the same spot. He came around the couch and saw that it was also the same show.
“Was the dog show your idea?” Bucky rumbled from the hidden depths of his hoodie.
“Do you like it? Ready for a dog now?” Tony tested the temperature of the pot of coffee in the kitchen and put it in the microwave.
“Alright, you don’t stab anyone and one of these days I’ll find you the ugliest mutt in New York. Deal?”
Tony felt a smile pulling at his lips when he heard the surprised laugh coming from the direction of the couch. “Deal.”
