Once you and Nat
have left all the suitcases on the rooms, she tells you that it’s
time to go to the supermarket. You both get into the car and drive to
the nearest store, which is about twenty minutes away.
Entering the big
supermarket, Nat grabs a small piece of paper from her right pocket
where she has written everything that you need to buy.
“Let’s see… We
should go and grab some duck.”
laughs at the disgusted face you give her and starts walking down the
“Yes, duck. They
also want caviar.”
“Of course they
want that.” You try not to roll your eyes at every item of food
that Nat picks.
Posh people are
always so extra, even with their food. It makes you sick.
After what feels
like three hours, Nat and you finally leave the supermarket and go
back to the car. When you arrive home, she instructs you to go put
all of the food on the kitchen and wait for her to start making
“Okay, I’m gonna
start with the duck, prepare the table.”
You grab a
beautiful, light purple tablecloth and walk to the living room. Bucky
is sitting on the sofa with his phone on his hands. He is wearing a
black sweater with some jeans. His beanie is gone, showing his
smooth, black hair. At first, he doesn’t notice you, so you don’t
say anything and do your job quietly. You are ready to go back to the
kitchen again when he turns his head slightly, seeing you.
“Hey!” He gets
up from the sofa and walks to you. “What’s for dinner?”
“Nat is making
duck.” His beautiful smile turns into a disgusted expression. “You
don’t like it? I can tell her to do something else?”
“No, no! It’s
okay. Nat knows that I hate it, but my mom has probably told her to
make it for dinner. It’s tradition to eat duck the first night we
“Yep.” He nods
his head and you grin at him.
“Well, I’m not
eating duck, either.”
“You don’t like
tasted it, but I don’t want to. I’ll probably drive to the
nearest McDonald’s and buy me something.”
Actually… Can you buy me something? Whatever you want.” Bucky
grabs some bills from his pocket and offers them to you.
“Done.” You take
the money and he winks at you, making your limbs tingle.
You go to the
kitchen again with the biggest smile on your face. Nat is putting the
duck in the oven when you enter.
“What took you so
“Bucky asked me to
go to McDonald’s and pick up some food for him.” You casually
shrug your shoulders at her, trying not to smile.
“Yeah, he hates
duck.” Nat closes the oven and looks at you. “Finish the table,
I’ll make the salad.”
After dinner is over
Nat and you start clearing the table. Soon, every member of the
family starts to go to their rooms. You grab the last dishes and go
to the kitchen. You are putting them in the dishwasher when you feel
a firm hand on your waist. Turning around quickly, your eyes lock
is still up, right?” Your lips open slightly and you feel
speechless for some seconds.
“Ye-yeah. Sure. I
was just about to go.”
“Cool.” His hand
gives your waist a little squeeze and then he is gone.
You rub your eyes
with your hands and turn around, meeting with Nat’s smirk.

warning you.” She sighs. “Look, Bucky has bring a different girl
here every single year. But this is the second year that Dot has come
here and that’s a record. What I mean is that don’t get attached
to him. Bucky likes to play around, to flirt. But I’m sure his
mother is pressuring him to put a ring on Dot’s finger.”
“A ring?!” You
look astonished at her. “Nat, if this is the second year that she
has come here, it means that they’ve been dating for two years,
three years top. How is he going to marry her?!”
“If it was for him
he probably wouldn’t do it! Look, if he gets engaged with her, it
will be because of Winifred.”
Nat shrugs her
shoulders at your words and keeps cleaning the kitchen.

Do you want something?”
“No, I’m good
with the duck.” She smiles at you. “Just, don’t take too long,
you’re coming with me tomorrow, I want you to meet some of my
“Okay.” You wave
at her and go to the car.
After twenty long
minutes, you finally arrive back home. You grab the big bag with your
left hand and with the other you open the door to the house trying to
be as quiet as possible.
“Let me help you
with that.” You hear a voice and look over the bag to see Bucky
smiling at you.
He grabs the bag
from your hand and signals you to go to the kitchen. You close the
door and follow him. Once you are there, he takes all the food out,
giving you a burger and your fries. You grab two beers and handle him
Sitting on the
chairs, you watch him as he attacks his burger. The curiosity is
eating you out, so you decide to ask him.
“So… How long
have you and Dot been going out?” He looks at you and you can see
the surprise on his beautiful eyes. “I’m sorry, I shouldn’t
have asked you that.”
“No, no, it’s
okay. I just thought you were the quiet type.” He grabs his beer
and drinks some. “We’ve been dating for two years.”
“Oh, nice.” You
eat some of your fries. “You seem happy with her.”

you furrow your brows. “Everyone is sure that she is the one for
“And are you
sure?” Bucky and you lock eyes for a couple of seconds. You can
feel your heart beating quickly against your chest as he looks down
and a little smirk appears on his face.
“I don’t know,
honestly. But my mom has been telling me to ask her to marry me.”
“Do you want to
“Then tell your
“I don’t think
that’s how things work.”
“It is how they
work in the real world. What’s the worst thing that could happen?”
“You are a bit
nosy, you knew that?” He smiles playfully at you and you return the
“I’m sorry, I
shouldn’t have gone that far with the questions.” You pick up the
papers on the table and throw everything in the trash. Bucky is still
eating some of his fries. “Good night, Bucky.”
Wake up!” Nat shakes you and you groan at her.
“What time is it?”
“Are you nuts?!”
You open one eye to look at her.
“We have to
prepare breakfast, remember? Now go to the shower and put your
uniform on, I’ll see you in the kitchen.”
You groan again and
finally get up. Looking through the window, you see the big mountains
being illuminated by the sun rays. You try to smile and be positive
and you head to the shower.
When you enter the
kitchen, half of the breakfast is already done.

grab the plate full of eggs.
You are carrying the
orange juice to the table, but when you arrive there everyone is

but he turns to Dot when she whispers something on his ear. He laughs
and pecks her lips and you quickly look away, pouring some juice on
Winifred’s glass. Nat enters the living room with the coffee and
“Nat, you already
know that all the skiing gear is in the garage. Take what you need.”
“(Y/N), darling, I
suppose you ski?” Winifred looks at you with a beautiful smile that

tables and boots, take what you want.” George smiles happily at you
and you thank him.

everything you need, we are leaving in ten minutes.”
You look around and
finally pick up some white boots, a blue table and white gear and put
it on as quickly as you can. Grabbing some orange glasses and a
really cute, blue beanie, you get out of the chalet to see Nat
already waiting for you.
Since the house is
next to the mountains, you go walking until you are in front of the
chairlift. Nat looks around until she waves at someone. You look
towards the direction she is looking and see a girl and a boy. When
they are closer, you can see that the girl has two long, brown braids
and she is wearing a sweatshirt that indicates that she is a monitor.
The boy carries his skis in one hand and on the other he has his
beanie. You can see his blonde hair shining in the sun and you smile
at them when they are in front of you.
“Nat!” The girls
exclaims and hugs her tightly, then turns to you. “Hi, I’m Wanda,
“Oh! Hello, I’m
(Y/N).” You smile at her and she kisses you on the cheek.
“Hey, Nat.” The
boy leans to hug Nat and then he kisses your cheek. “I’m Steve.”
“Nice to meet you,
After making some
small talk with the both of them, Wanda has to leave to go to one of

find Buck, girls. Nat, I’ll see you later! You too, (Y/N)!” You
both wave at him and go to the chairlift.

friends since childhood. Steve comes to the chalet a lot, Winifred
and George consider him his son.”
“Does he has a
girlfriend, too?” Nat looks at you and you can see how she tenses
up at the question.
“No, he doesn’t.”
raise a brow at her. “Do you like him?” She looks at you with her
eyes wide open.
“Of course not!
And anyway, if I liked him it’s not like he is going to be with a
girl like me.”
“Never say never.”
She glares at you and you chuckle at her expression.
After a long day of
snowboarding, you finally arrive back home. You carry Nat’s skis
and your table to the garage. When you arrive there, you see Bucky
placing a set of skis in one of the shelves.
“Hey.” You greet
him with a smile.
“Hi, how was your

words and he approaches you.

“You don’t even

“I’m sure you
are.” He bits his bottom lip and you realize just how close you are
It feels like hours
until he decides to smirk at you and leave the room. When he is out
of your sight, you groan heavily and shake your arms at your sides.
You don’t know this man, yet he makes you feel a thousand things.
Every time you are near him you feel as if you can’t breath, your
palms start to sweat and your heart beats faster. You groan again,
but this time loudly.
wrong with you?” Nat enters the room with her gear.
“Is it Bucky?”
You glare at her but she ignores you. “Jesus, you fell for him
faster than I thought.”
“I didn’t fell
for him, Nat! And I am not doing it!”
(Y/N), he is a player, okay? He doesn’t know how to have a
relationship. It’s a miracle that Dot is still with him. I’m just
saying, he’ll probably try to flirt with you, to get in your pants.
It’s everything that he cares about.”
You throw a
suspicious look at her.
“Have you been
with Bucky before?”
“What?! Of course
not! Gross!” She leaves her gear on the table and turns around to
look at you. “But I’ve seen many chalet girls leaving this house
with a broken heart because of him.”
“He has hooked up
with the chalet girls?”
“Chalet girls, ski
monitors, tourists… It doesn’t matter to him. He is fine with
everything. So think about it twice before he charms you.”
You roll your eyes
at her and go upstairs to your room. You are definitely not going to
fall for Bucky Barnes.
These cool and innovative electric roller skates propel a wearer at up to 12 mph!
