Heroes and Civilians Part 1

Part

Pairings: Bucky Barnes X Reader

Summary- Just when Y/N thinks her dreams have come true after landing a dream job at the Avengers tower with Mr Stark she soon learns things wont be as easy as she’d first hoped. Not only is the jobs pressure more than she anticipated, but a certain metal armed man is also determined to make her life a hole lot harder at every turn. Bucky Barnes X reader

Warnings: none

For as long as you could remember you had been fascinated by the Avengers, by superheroes as a hole really. Not because of the whole having abilities malarkey, although then again turning into a big green monster or being induced with super soldier serum is still a pretty interesting topic.No, it was because of what they did for you, for everyone. Saving the world, time after time and asking for nothing in return. They were heroes. So of course, when Tony Stark’s assistant called you back earlier today offering you the job of secretary and file manager based on the same floor as the Avengers, you couldn’t help but feel as though you’d peeked. Yeah, sure you weren’t exactly saving the world but you where saving Tony Stark’s sanity, one disorganised file at a time.

Anyhow, the assistant told you to start first thing tomorrow, 9am sharp, apparently, Mr Stark hated late employers which you supposed was understandable and you anyway certainly weren’t going to be late on your first day, especially for your dream job. So, you agreed, thanked her and then put down the phone, grinning to yourself as you fell back onto your bed and took in the silence of your small apartment.  Life was about to get a whole lot better. You ended up sleeping pretty well that night.

……………………………………………………

You looked up at the tall building, marked with the big letters ‘Stark’ across the side, it was honestly like a dream, as cliché as that sounds you half expected the assistant to call you up again that morning to tell you there had been some kind of mistake, but she never did and here you are.

As you walked into the building, you were met with a giant, spotless reception. Everything was white except for the men and women walking by in black suits and formal attire, you looked down at yourself starting to think that maybe your dark red blouse wasn’t the best idea. Shaking off the thought, you marched up to the reception where a brunette stuck her finger up to you as she picked up the white phone.

“Hello Stark Tower, how may I help?” Her voice was high pitched like the kind of sound you’d pair with an animated cartoon animal.

“Mhmm..do you have an appointment?…I see…2:30?…Excellent…Bye, bye now.” She hung up the phone harshly and glanced up at you with a huge smile, too big to be genuine.

“How may I help you?”

“Ye um hi. I got a job here and I’m just wondering if I could get directions or if I need to meet anyone to you know, show me the ropes?” You smiled out of politeness. The brunette began to type away on her laptop about something definitely not to do with your request.

“I see. The secretary, right? Yes Y/N is it. Mr Sta-” she was cut off by a dark-haired man who you only recognised from the multiple billboards across the city as Tony Stark.

“Y/N. Ah nice of you to be on time unlike some of these other employees” The brunette blushed.

“Walk with me.” Without even looking at you he held out his hand for you take some folders he was carrying which you obviously grabbed without hesitation and proceeded to speed walk beside Mr Stark.

“So, to your right is the café, a favourite of mine, they do great vanilla lattes just a heads up. To your left is, you know probably something boring, you don’t have to worry about that. Anyway, here’s the elevator.’ You both went inside as Mr Stark pushed a button for the 42nd floor, you watched as the doors closed behind you.

“Y/N right?” You nodded.

“Yes Mr Stark.”

“No, please call me Tony. I hate that Mr Stark mumbo jumbo. So, what did Pepper tell you about the job, I can’t suppose she told you much over the phone?” You gathered that Pepper was the name of the woman you talked to yesterday and now you thought about it no she didn’t, recalling it, you remember the extent of her description went something like oh you know, you’ll just be handling files and maybe making the occasionally cup of coffee.

“Oh err she just told me I’ll be looking over files and maybe making people tea and coffee. Just stuff like that” Tony raised an eyebrow at your answer.

“How very vague of her. I suppose that leaves me with the fun part of telling you the specifics-” Just then the elevator door opened with a ping to reveal an apartment like designed floor, but of course it was too huge to be your average apartment especially when looking at your own that was probably the size of their bathroom.

You and Tony stepped out of the elevator and onto the wooden floor where, to the left was a small desk with three large piles of paper placed in the middle. “So, this is where you’ll be working. Lunch is between 12:30-1:30 and your hours will be 9 till 5 but be prepared to work overtime if it’s been a busy day. Remember, if I’m working overtime, so is my coffee habit and that’s your responsibility.” You nodded at his every word, a part of you wanting to take notes.

“Now ur, you can put those down,” you placed the folders you were carrying on the desk “So, other than coffee, your job is very important. See these files here, they’re all what the board considers mission opportunities and its up to you to read through them and separate them into priority concern and not priority concern. You also have to do file reports after every Avengers’ mission and make sure that the right people are contacted if any legal law stuff is needed. Got it?”

“Ur yeah, got it.”

“Good. So, questions?”

“Um just one. Isn’t sorting out priority mission’s kind of a big job for a secretary?” That was a lot of pressure.

“It was the boards idea, they think it’d be refreshing to have a civilian’s point of view and don’t worry, all your decisions will be double checked by higher up.” He smiled and gestured for you to take a seat at the desk so you did.

“Well if that’s all Y/N. Have fun.” And with that he exited back into the elevator, pushed the button and he was gone. And you were alone with a mountain of files all detailing mission prospects. Talk about responsibility.

“Who are you?” A deep voice came from around the corner causing you to jump and spill at least 30 files all over the floor. Shit. Well some first day this was. You looked up to see where the voice came from and leaning against a wall in the kitchen area stood a tall man with dark black hair, arms folded. Although, the most prominent feature about him was probably the rusted silver metal arm that was showing unapologetically in his short-sleeved shirt.

“Y/N. Um I’m the new secretary.” Just as you were speaking, you got to your knees and started to pick up the files off the floor as the man just watched you.

“Hmm. Didn’t realise we needed a secretary. Especially a clumsy one.” He turned away from you and started pouring himself a glass of water. You weren’t used to people being this rude to you, of course you could handle the brunette downstairs but at least she tried to fake being nice whereas this guy was just being a straight up douche. What made it even worse was that you didn’t know how to respond so you just kept your head down, picked up the last of the files and plopped back on your seat.

“Um your Bucky Barnes right? I read about you in a museum once.” You said, god you sounded stupid. The guy didn’t even respond straight away, he sipped his water in one long gulp and then placed the glass in the sink.

“Well, it’s nice to know I have fans. Clean my glass when you’re done with those files would you doll.” Then he strode out of the kitchen and that was it. That was your first interaction with The Winter Soldier.
