I don’t want no time on the big screen.

I’m okay with me and my ripped jeans and you, and you.

Messy hair, that’s what he likes on me.

I don’t care as long as we’re happy and free

To be just you and me, and free to be just you and me.

I never wanted my name in lights. Never wanted more recognition than I deserved. I was okay with my blue jeans and faded t shirt. Okay with the fact that I couldn’t afford all this fancy clothes and shoes. None of that bothered me very much.

I had the chance to live my life besides Steve - whom I loved -  and honestly…? That’s more than I could ever ask for.

They think it’s a shame

That the world will never know our names,

But I think that’s okay,

‘Cause love gets ruined by money and power and fame,

Everyone kept saying how lucky I was to be dating captain america. But in all honesty I could care less what Steve’s title was. Captain America. A police officer. A school teacher. A businessman. It didn’t matter to me. Steve was just Steve Rogers to me. Captain America didn’t matter when it was just me and him. It was always Steve and Y/N. Nothing else was needed. All that mattered was me and him.  

And we’re just 2 poor kids from a really rich city.

My oh my, what a pity.

'Cause we’ve got a love story unlike the rest,

No fancy suit and no fancy dress.

Just us, just us, just love, just love

Just us, just us, just love, just love

“I hope you like it… I … We wouldn’t be able to afford much more and -”

I leaned upward and kissed Steve lightly before resting my hands on his chest his a smile, “Steve I don’t care what it looks like. It could literally be the inside of cardboard box and I’d still be happy living here with you.”

Steve chuckled lightly and opened the door to the apartment letting me walk ahead of him inside.

I moved into the apartment, silently walking around it before stopping in the center of the living room.

“Well…?” Steve stood in front of me shuffling his feet anxiously waiting for my answer.

I threw my arms around Steve and laughed, ‘I love it!”

Steve chuckled softly spinning me around in his arms before gently setting me down.

“I’m glad doll. I’m so happy that we’re doing this. Finally getting our own little place and settling down.”

I grinned and nodded wrapping my arms around Steve’s neck loosely and smiling, “There’s no one else I’d rather be doing this with.”

Steve smiled and brought his lips down to meet mine muttering, “I love you.”


He picks her up in a Benz but

my lover comes by himself and a dozen roses,

He probably stole 'em.

He’s got a smudge of mud on his eye

Here to make me break into smile,

'cause he drives them mad, oh, he drives

them mad

Steve didn’t have to try very hard to make me smile. Simply being around him made me want to smile. The small things I got to do together with Steve brought me joy. Like right now.

Us just sitting under a tree together was the best part of my day. It didn’t matter how shitty the rest of my day was or what I would have to deal with when I got home. All that mattered right now was that I could have this moment of peace with Steve.

“You okay doll?”  Steve chuckled wrapping his arm around me and pulling me close.

I nodded and smiled up at him, “Yeah why?”

Steve shrugged gently, “You were just so quiet.”

I chuckled and nodded, “I was just thinking…”

“Penny for your thoughts then?”

I grinned slightly, “Thinking about us. Just… how nice it is to have someone like you in my life.”

Steve laughed softly and gave my arm a small squeeze, “I think about that all the time. I will never be sure of how I got you in my life and why you fell in love in me but I will never - not even for a moment - regret it.”

I smiled kissing him softly before pulling back and holding out my hand, “Pay up.”

“What…?” Steve looked at me confused.

I smirked and wiggled my fingers, “Penny for my thoughts. I gave you my thoughts now give me a penny.”

Steve sighed dramatically showing me his empty pockets, “You see… now I would… but I’ve got no money…. Will this do?”

I watched curiously as Steve pulled a small velvet box out of his pocket before widening my eyes in realization.

Steve helped me to my feet before getting down on one knee smiling at me, “Y/N Y/L/N, you make everyday of my life worth living. You make coming home from a rough day easy. You make my whole world the best I could ever ask for. You’re everything I could ever need. And though I know we don’t have much money… I want you to know I will do anything for you. You’re my whole world…

So would you do me the honors of becoming, Mrs. Y/N Rogers, my wife?”

I grinned extending my hand to Steve, “Yes! A million times yes!”

Steve chuckled sliding the ring onto my finger before standing up and pulling me into his arms kissing me, “God I love you.”

I chuckled wrapping my arms around his neck before giving him another soft kiss, “I love you too.”

Dollar signs all around us,

We sneak onto the city bus.

Too blinded by what we have

To notice your mean old laughs.

I pulled Steve under the awning outside one of little shops on the street to shield us from the rain, as we both laughed.

“Guess we picked a bad time to go out then…”

I smacked Steve’s chest playfully, “Shut up smart ass.”

Steve laughed pulling me to his chest and holding me close, “I’m kidding! It really isn’t that bad!”

I scoffed pouting, “Steve this super bad. We’re stuck in the rain! The rain! We’re going to get all wet and just… ugh.”

Steve smiled and pull away extending his hand, “May I?”

I sighed gently and gave Steve my hand allowing him to pull me back into the rain as we started to dance.

“You’re so cliche…”

Steve chuckled spinning me, “You love it. Just as much as you love me.”

I sighed but smiled looking up at Steve, “I do… I love you so much.”

Steve placed his hands on my waist and kissed me, before smiling, “I love you too doll.”

At this moment the people walking by didn’t matter. The cars driving down the other streets weren’t important. It was just me and Steve.

Just us, just us, just love, just love,

Just us, just us, just love, just love, love, love.

I sat on the big chair in the corner just silently taking everything in. Everyone who had ever told us we wouldn’t make it. Everyone who had ever told us we were too poor to make it out alone on our own. All of those people. Where were they now? Where were they now that we had finally proven that no matter how much money we had we could have done it?

“Hey babydoll. I was looking for you… I thought you left me.” Steve chuckled at his own joke coming over and wrapping his arms around my large frame.

I rolled my eyes and looked up at his big blue eyes, “That would be the day. Did you need me for something?”

Steve smiled and kissed the top of my head, “No i just wanted to see how my two favorite girls were doing.”

I smiled as Steve placed his hand on my stomach and started rubbing small circles into it.

“We’re both fine. I’m growing impatient but fine otherwise.”

Steve laughed softly looking at me, “Almost love. Not much longer till we get to hold her in our arms…”

I grinned and nodded, “She’s going to be a little princess.”

“Oh yeah… I still can’t believe this is all happening… it’s all so surreal…”

I kissed Steve lightly and nodded, “I know… But i’m glad we made it.”

Steve rested his forehead gently against mine, “I’m glad we made it together.”
