Pairing: Bucky Barnes x reader
Word Count: 1248
You avoided Bucky, Sam, and Steve the next few days. Avoiding them was easier than you thought because Tony had asked you to help him with a multitude of tedious tasks. When you would finish with those tasks, you would stick around to see if he needed help with anything else.
Whenever Steve walked into a room you were in, you pretended to be occupied with something. It was so obvious you were and Steve felt bad. He never said anything though. He was just trying to protect you and follow the rules. After Bucky had reminded Steve of himself before the serum, he thought about a lot. If anything, Steve thought you could have a role like Maria. Maria was trained to fight and also helped with missions – she just was not able to contest the enemies unless they came to her. She was not an official avenger, but she worked for them as planetary defense and under intelligence service. Yet after reflecting on it, he still came to terms that it would be best if you just remained an assistant.
Sam finally caught you on your way to Tony’s office. Telling him you were busy, you walked faster.
“Y/n, I’m sorry that it didn’t turn out well,” Sam stood in his place. You stopped in your tracks and turned to face him. You had no valid reason to avoid Sam. Nor did you have a valid reason to avoid Bucky. They didn’t do anything wrong. In reality, they were helping you and putting themselves at risk. They should be avoiding you.
