Characters: reader, Steve, Sam, Natasha (mentioned), Maria Hill
Summary: Falling for a good man, who happened to be her training partner, was unavoidable. What if you can’t stay away, even after heartbreak? Is it possible to be friends with some one you’ve fallen for? Life rarely unfolds the way we hope it would. (Events take place after CATWS)
Warnings: lil fluff, lotta angst. Heartbreak. I’m sorry.
A/N: This one hurt. Once again, I drew from my own personal experiences, so it took a lot out of me to write. I hope you enjoy it? I’m considering an epilogue, so let me know if that is of interest! Please let me know your thoughts! Special thanks to @buckyywiththegoodhair for helping edit. Bless you!
The next morning after a maximum of 3 hours sleep, you dabbed on some concealer to hide bags under your eyes and got dressed. Hopefully you could blame your ‘illness’ on not looking your best. Once you arrived, it seemed you didn’t have to worry. Apparently Nat was a little too good at telling the story that you’d been sick. When you walked into work, everyone was shocked that you were “up and around” so soon. It was like you had the plague or something.
Assuring everyone you were fine, the office was back to business as usual. However, partway through your first day back, a mission report update arrived from Steve. Upon seeing the email, your breath quickened with a twist of your still-tender heart. You sought refuge in the bathroom until the pain in your chest subsided and tears dried.
The rest of your week passed without incident, the only unusual being your lack of visiting the gym. Even without Steve there, too many memories lingered. You kept yourself distracted by catching up on work and spending time with the other Avengers. That weekend, you actually made an effort to go out with friends and socialize. The pain in your chest still lingered, but less sharply than before.
Request: Not sure if you’re accepting requests but could you do a Bellamyxreader in which the reader is struggling because she feels useless and feels pressured by Bellamy because he keeps assigning her to tasks she can’t do. Thanks love and have a good year
A/N: this turned out wayyy more emotional than i planned, happy new year xox
gif not mine
Another day, another chore. Lately, it seemed like all you were doing is taking orders and failing. No matter how hard you tried you struggled with every task Bellamy had intrusted you with. You didn’t know how to tell him you were just too useless to complete them and it had all taken a toll on you. The pressure placed onto you kept growing and growing - it only took a sentence for you to break underneath it.
“The point is for you to build a fire, not let everyone freeze to death.” Bellamy mutters to you, his voice laced with annoyance as he stands next to you. You pause, closing your eyes for a few seconds before throwing the wood on the ground angrily. You storm off to the loud sound of it thudding to the ground.
