Scarlet Savior pt.4
Pairing: Bucky x Reader
Summary: Some of them said you were born gifted; you were able to magnify every single perception, from luck, to your own feelings. Others, that you were damned since the very beginning; you could also bring the worst from every single thing, every single person, even about you. However, you saw your powers as a part of yourself, a part that, like a silent virus, was infecting your own sanity. Cheating!Bucky,
A/N: Reader has the ability of detecting emotions and magnifying everything she wants, yet she can’t control her own feelings. I don’t even know how did I manage to finish this, I started writing the chapter from the end. My writing quality is getting worse. I’m so fucking sorry, for real. Just one more chapter to go, hope you guys enjoyed this.
His constantly hot skin wasn’t planned to be pressed against yours. He wasn’t even supposed to be there lying next to you but on the bone breaking couch across the room. Yet, Bucky was sleeping by your side like a little kitten, finally finding peace and fullness while having you between his arms. He got you back. He got to feel you again. A soft smile was decorating his features, making him look 10 years younger. Making him look like the day he realised he didn’t have to hide from nobody anymore. Making him look like the cheeky man who sat opposite you the day he took you out just to declare his attraction to you, figuring out it was reciprocated afterwards.
Yet, you felt nothing. Of course there was this numbing after sex sensation that calmed your muscles and freed your mind, but that was all. You felt satisfied, but you didn’t feel the need of his presence anymore. You just wanted that king size bed for yourself and take a long nap before waking up and kick life’s ass. But we can’t have everything, can we? So you buried your face on his chest and nestled your body towards him like a teddy bear. It was so natural, so meant to be done when you both were together. For him, you were the little kid that made the soldier feel loved, and he was the brave man who had the duty of making you feel safe.
