Things We Don’t Mean
Based on Anonymous Prompt: Reader is Tony’s sister but Avengers have no idea and one day while Tony took Pepper to Paris for a weekend, the reader was on the mission and got hurt. She’s in love with Steve but he was mat at her for taking a stupid risk and says something that Peggy wouldn’t do this and the reader realises that Steve would never love her (but he;s in love with her too) so she doesn’t want to see anyone and doesn’t want to scary her brother, but the next day FRIDAY calls Tony and he and Steve have argument
A/N: Ahhhhh sorry I’m so terrible at writing consistently. I just finished with school for the year though, so that should free up sometime. I’m actually at the airport right now, heading overseas, so I don’t know what type of wifi access I’ll have or what type of time I’ll be able to use to write, but I will definitely write more when I get back (famous last words). Depending on how productive I can be in these next few hours of my layover, I might be able to queue up some fics for upcoming weeks…? Anyway, hope y’all like this one.

The bullet wound doesn’t hurt. Well, that’s not entirely true. When you shift or when you try to breathe or when you’re sitting still, the pain shoots through your chest like splinters of glass.
What hurts more is the pointed silence that hangs in the air between you and Steve.
The captain in question is perched gingerly on the chair next to your stretcher, staring straight ahead. His eyes, normally a soft blue, are hard and flinty. His jaw is locked, his body radiating tension.
Natasha walks into the med bay, her eyes softening when she sees you. She walks over, gingerly peeling back the layers of bandages to replace them.
“You’re losing a lot of blood,” she says quietly.
“I’ll be fine,” you reply. “Nothing I haven’t dealt with before. How much longer?”
