Tony can feel his heart in his throat and his pulse ricocheting through his body in an uneven rhythm. He drums his fingers against the rim of his arc reactor, the tap-tapping jagged and uneven over the thunderous beating of his heart.
He clears his throat. “So,” he begins with forced nonchalance, “you wanna tell me what that was about?”
Steve is turned away from him, looking out the window, arms crossed over his chest. Tony can’t decide if it’s better or worse that he can’t see Steve’s face.
When he gets no response after a long few seconds, Tony clears his throat pointedly.
Heaving a great sigh, Steve slowly turns around to begrudgingly face Tony.
“You drive me crazy, Tony,” Steve says, his brow furrowed and his voice tight and weary all at the same time.
“Yeah, I got that part,” Tony answers, waving his hand. “You tell me that all the time. I’m talking about the part where you randomly said ‘I love you’ in the middle of a debriefing.”
