Y/N = Your Name
Bucky Barnes has never seen this much blood.
His flesh hand presses up against your side, putting as much pressure as he can in attempt to stop the bleeding. You were running out of time, and he knew it. His comrades weren’t close enough to save you. He’s never felt so helpless.
Once upon a time, Bucky would have frozen at the sight of blood. After HYDRA’s experiments, he struggled with PTSD. That was long ago. Although he still feels unease around gore and has flashbacks to gruesome experiments, Bucky Barnes has found the ability to ground himself and lessen the panic. It was thanks to your support that he had the will to learn.
This was a different story.
It wasn’t so much the violence and injury that bothered him. It was who these factors affected.
He couldn’t do enough to save you.
