Don’t Turn Around (Part 2/2) (Steve Rogers x reader)
Request: Hi! I really love your stories, they’re amazing and very suspenseful. I was wondering, can you do a one shot where the reader is a mutant taken in by the Avengers after a freak accident. She has feelings for Steve, but she’s scared of her powers and thinks that he’ll never love her? It’s okay if you can’t get to it, but have a good day!
In the next month that followed after your rescue and return to the compound, you kept a low profile and had yet to return to duty with the team. It wasn’t purely by your choice alone, as Steve wouldn’t allow it even if you had wanted to. You had been effective at clearing the memories from his mind that had left him riddled with guilt before your rescue, but the man knew you too well; despite your best efforts to act as normally as you could when he was nearby, he couldn’t shake the feeling that something more was going on with you and he was keeping you grounded until he could figure it out.
