“Bucky, King Kong would definitely kick Harambe’s ass.” You chuckled into the receiver.
“No listen Haramabe is powerful!” Bucky argued back. You rolled your eyes and snorted.
You were about to retort when something caught your eyes in the rearview mirror. You squinted your eyes to get a better look but all you could see was a black jeep driving fast and looked like it was…driving straight to you.
“Bucky,” Your voice sounded shaky.
Said man quickly straightened up, sensing something wrong.
“What is it, Y/N.”
“I…I think I’m in danger.” You breathed out.
“Y/N listen to me. You need to -” But Bucky was cut off by the sound of gun shots and your car screeching until it eventually crashed.
“Y/N? Y/N! Y/N ARE YOU THERE? ARE YOU OK? Y/N!!” But the line was dead.
Like a rocket, Bucky quickly shot out of his to put on his outfit and take his guns with him.
“Bucky, hey!” Steve greeted into the phone.
“Steve. Get the others. Something happened to Y/N.” Bucky commanded and then immediately shutting his phone.
Using his motor-cycle, Bucky reached the scene of the car crash in a short time. Thankfully, you were almost home so you weren’t that far. Just as he was arriving, he saw a couple of Hydra agents ripping your car door open and about to take you out.
Bucky quickly jumped out of his car and ran towards them. He would shoot at them but half of your body was exposed to him and, despite him being a good shooter, there’s still a possibility that he could hurt you. As he was running, he was joined with Natasha. They both began fight the Hydra agents while Steve and Tony tried to get you out the car but your seatbelt is stuck.
“Steve!” Bucky shouting.
The blond understood that Bucky was urging to hurry up and get you to the nearest hospital.
He gripped the seatbelt and began to pull. The leather protection snapped in half.
“Tony, take Y/N to the nearest hospital while help them.”
“Already on it, Steve.” and with that, Tony flew the both of you away.
“How is she? Is she ok? Let me see here!” Bucky bombarded as he stormed into the hospital.
“Woah! Easy there tiger!” Tony raised his hands to stop Bucky.
“Don’t test me.” Bucky seethed.
“James.” Steve rests his hand on his best and childhood best friend, “The doctors are with her now. There’s nothing we can do but wait.” he continued.
Bucky nods his head and slumps on the chair.
An hour later, one of the doctors steps out from the emergency room.
“How is she?” Bucky jumps, worry and concern in his eyes.
The doctor has a look of regret, “I’m sorry to inform you but miss L/N is a coma.”
Bucky lets out a shaky breath, Steve rests his hand on Bucky’s shoulder once more.
“Can I,” He gulps, “Can I see her?”
The doctor nods, “Follow me please.”
Bucky felt his heart stop at the sight of you. IVs were hooked into you arms while it looked like you slept. Your face and arms were covered up in bruises and scratches.
“Thankfully, she only sustained minor injuries. However, the shock of the crash led her into a coma.” The doctor explains, “We…we’re also not sure when she’ll wake up.”
“Thank you, doctor.” Bucky heard Steve whisper.
It’s been days since you’ve been admitted to the hospital but Bucky never left your sight. Steve begged him to go home and rests but he refused. He would hold your hand and talk to you, hoping that that would wake you up. But he didn’t give up hope. He would hum to your favorite song and read a book he found in the room.
At night, he would kiss your forehead before laying his hand on your clasped hand and fall asleep.
On the sixth day of your admission, Bucky looked miserable. There were bags under his eyes and a stubble started to grow.
“You gotta get some rest, Bucky.” Steve says in concern.
He shook his head, “No.” his eyes never left your figure as he says, “I need to stay here. Make sure she’s safe.”
“I understand that, Buck. But you’re tired and you haven’t eaten in three days. Please, Bucky.”
Bucky contemplated his best friend’s words. He was right. He hadn’t drank or eaten anything in days. His neck felt stiff from never sitting up from the chair and he couldn’t feel his thighs from all the siting. He was about to get up when he felt one of your fingers twitching.
“Y/N,” He breathes out.
Your fingers continue to twitch and your eyes clench tightly before slowly opening up. It took you a while to adjust to the bright light but you eventually opened your eyes all the way through.
“Why am I in the hospital?” Was the first thing you said.
“Oh, Y/N thank god!” Bucky says, eyes welling up with tears.
“Y/N. Do you remember what happened?” Steve asks with sternness yet with slight concern.
You wiped a tear drop from from Bucky’s eye before turning your head to face Steve, “I was driving home. I was on the phone with Bucky when I noticed a black Jeep heeding straight at me. After that…I don’t remember anything.”
“They were Hydra agents.” Bucky informed you, “They were after you.” His expressions turned into one of anger, jaw clenched tightly.
“I’ll go tell the others.” Steve quietly excuses himself from the room.
You pat the empty spot next to you and hold onto Bucky. Both of you fell asleep to the sound of the monitor.
“Y/N. Glad to see you awake!” Natasha greeted you hours later.
“Good to be awake.” You joked.
“That’s it. No more driving for you kid.” Tony says as he walks into the room.
“Hey!” You yell playfully.
“I’m sure metal arm here agrees with me.” he continues.
You turn to Bucky with big and round puppy eyes.
“We’ll…We’ll see about that.” Bucky mumbles as he tries to hide his blush away as the room is filled with laughter.
