“50 dollars they’re going to confess their feelings in a week.” Steve turned to the woman next to him. She was sipping on her martini, her red lips curved into a smirk.
“Betting on your friends are not nice, Alex.” Steve chided before adding, “100 bucks they’ll kiss tonight.”
“Oh-ho! You’re on, Steve.” She shook his hand, feeling the little spark she always felt whenever she came in contact with him.
“Do you think they’re a good couple?” Alex asked him. She was feeling a little tipsy, the alcohol finally affecting her body.
“I do. They deserve to be happy and both have been through hell.” Steve watched them wistfully. His eyes darted towards Alex a few times, wondering if they could be happy as well. She caught his eyes and smiled back.
“It must’ve been hard for you as well, Steve.” Alex has been there when Steve met Peggy for the first time after he woke up from his 70 years nap. It was the most romantic sight and it was also the moment she knew Steve will never love her.
“Not anymore. It’s… more bearable now.” Steve smiled at her. He did have his future envisioned, the white picket fence, a dog, two children and a lovely wife. When he came out of the ice, he realized those dreams are long gone and he didn’t know if he can still have it. He shook off his thoughts and hummed to the familiar tune of the song. Some guests were already starting to dance together so Steve gathered his courage and offered her his hand.
“Dance with me?” He shyly asked. She has the most beautiful smile, he thought as he led them to the dance floor. He put his hand on her waist and guided her as they dance. It was a slow song, which gave him the chance to not step on her feet.
“I thought you don’t dance.” She teased.
“I didn’t. I had to learn it so I can ask you to dance with me.” He admitted.
“Really?” She looked so surprised by that sudden confession.
“I didn’t know how else am I supposed to ask you out. I’ve been trying to come up with something.” He told her while they slow danced.
“Because I really like you? I’m in love with you?” Steve looked so confused by her reaction.
“No. You love Peggy.” Oh. So that’s why she sounded so surprised.
“I did. But she had a good life, and I should too. I didn’t know I can have a good life until I met you.” He softly said, tipping her chin with his finger.
“I—I thought..” She stammered, tears glazing her bright eyes.
“I should’ve been more forward. I’m sorry. I really thought you don’t like me and I just—I don’t know. I guess Thor’s alcohol made me more reckless and open.” He smiled when he heard her soft laughter.
“I’m in love with you too, Steve.” She tiptoed and planted her lips on his.
“Pay up, Tony, Rhodes.” Clint smirked from the other side of the room. The three of them have been watching Steve and Alex dancing and kissing for a while. Tony groaned and pull out his wallet to handed Clint a stack of a hundred dollars bill. Rhodes gave Clint two hundreds and gawked at Tony’s money.
“How much did you bet?!”
“One grand. He thinks Steve will never confess to Alex. What a dumb guy.” Clint snickered while happily gathered his bet money. This is a great party.
“We should do this again, sometimes.” Clint told them and pointed his finger at a couple.
“Who wants to bet they’re going to break up tonight?” Clint watched Tony slowly smirked.
“1000 bucks they won’t.” Tony declared, earning a frustrated groan from Rhodes.
“Peppers’ gonna kill you, Tony.”
