Something - Steve x Reader
Look I made and cropped this gif. I’m proud okay? Let me be proud.
Requested by anon. (I found your series of asks quite funny. I loved your train of thought. Thank you for requesting.)
“(Y/n), wait.” Steve touched your shoulder gently, diverting your attention from the airport tarmac where you imagined what was going to happen within the next few hours.
“Can I talk to you?” Steve asked.
You nodded and followed him slightly off to the side away from the others.
“How are you felling?” He asked.
You laughed slightly, taken off guard by the question, “I’m ready but I’m worried something will happen. We used to be friends with them and I know we have to do this but I just don’t want anyone to get hurt.”
Steve nodded, chewing his lip slightly.
“I know. I’m sorry I got you into this. I appreciate you being there for me and supporting me but always telling me what you think. I need that.” He smiled at you shaking his head slightly, “And I know this may seem silly but I’m going to do whatever I can to keep Bucky safe, and you and the others. So I don’t know if I’ll survive this-”
“Steve-” You whispered, touching his arm gently.
He shook his head, removing your hand and holding it firmly in his.
“I love you. I want you to be safe. I want you to be happy.” He said, eyes locked on yours.
“I want you alive, Steve. I love you and I need you- Bucky needs you. You can help him get his memory back-”
“Not if Tony gets his way. I can’t help him if he’s locked in a cell or worse.” Steve bowed his head. “I needed to tell you. I love you and I want us to be safe together if you feel the same way but given who we are and what we do, that may not be possible.”
You smiled sadly, leaning up to press your lips to his. Steve took your face in his hands, kissing you gently- heavy with worry and sadness and emotion.
“Be safe.” You whispered, “But do what you have to do.”
