Warning: CUTE STUFF
A/N: Here’s my Steve writing!! I hope you guys enjoy it!
Steve was sitting on the couch in the living room while the rest of the avengers all scattered around, trying to get their children all together for trick or treat. They all have gathered the children to get pictures and last minute touches on their costumes before Steve was to take them out for trick or treating. The parents all wanted to finally have a night out and since Steve didn’t have a kid, or even a girlfriend for that matter, they pretty much voluntold him that he was to be walking them all around this year. Which he didn’t completely mind. It was just that he thought he was gonna be out partying along side his friends.
Steve stands up and makes his way to the mirror. He takes one last look at himself in his costume. Being a vampire was all Natasha’s idea and he didn’t actually hate it.
“You look great Uncle Steve!” Luci says as she comes and stands next to him. Luci was oldest of the three kids Steve was to be taking out tonight. She was about 9 now and the other two were 6 and 4. Perfect ages to be taking out for trick or treat.
“Thank you sweet heart,” Steve smiles as he looks down at her. “You look great as well Luci! Love your Pirate princess costume.” They both smile at each other before they hug and then return to the group.
“Okay, we will be back pretty late Steve, Thank you once again for this!!” Natasha says as she hugs him quickly, then hugs her son and takes Banner’s hand and leads him to the elevator.
“Seriously, thank you Steven,” Wanda also thanks him before kissing and hugging her daughter. Vision takes her hand and is soon following behind Natasha and Banner. Bucky and Caitlin, his wife, are following close behind. Joining alongside of them is Tony and Pepper. Clint was back at home with his wife and kids, so they unfortunately were to not be joining the group this time around.
“This means a lot man! We will see you later spidey child!” Peter says, smiling then hugging Luci and soon grabbing Kathryn’s hand, his wife, and joining the group in the elevator. Steve and the little ones all wave before the group disappears behind the doors.
“Uncle Steve, are we the next elevator?” Sophia, the youngest of the group asks, tugging at his cape.
“Yes we are!” Steve answers, sending her a warm smile. “Now, does everyone have their buckets?” They all nod and hold up their buckets. “Does everyone have their jackets?”
“Are you going to be holding them for us?” Chris asks, pulling at his sleeves.
“I can for now, but you must put them on the moment the sun goes down, okay?” Steve asks, pressing the button for the elevator. They all nod once again before the door opens, allowing them all to enter. Luci presses the first level button and all soon make their way down to the first floor. “When we get out of the tower, please hold my hand or onto my cape.”
“Okay!” They all say just as the door opens, allowing them all to exit and head towards the door.
Sophia and Chris wrap their little hands in Steve’s hand while Luci grabs a hold of his cape. They soon make their way towards the houses that are passing out the candy. They reach the first house and soon take off up the stairs. Steve stands back, watching them as they share smiles and please and thank yous. They soon are making their way back to Steve and to the next house, repeating the same words each time.
They are soon making up the second street. The little ones start to make up the stairs as your daughter runs up right behind them. You and Steve stand silently as you guys watch the little kids all gather around the bowl of candy.
“So, which one is yours?” Steve finally asks, looking back at you. You smile as your eyes follow your daughter in her little black widow costume.
“Samantha, she’s the one dressed like Black Widow! What about yours?” You ask Steve. He smiles as he looks up at his nieces and nephew.
“They are my nieces and nephews. Sophia is the little Belle, Chris is the Little Ninja, and Luci is the one dressed like the pirate princess.” Steve explains, looking back at you once again. “I like your vampire costume.”
“I like yours as well,” You smirk as you look him up and down. “So where all are you guys headed?”
“Well, we are going to head up this road but if you want to join us, i know i would like the company,” Steve explains as the little ones soon come back to you guys.
“Lucky for you, we are also heading up this road,” You say as you place your hands on your daughters shoulders.
“Good,” Steve says as his little ones come up to him. “I’m Steve by the way, i don’t think i said that yet..”
“Y/N, It’s nice to meet you Steve. And this is Samantha,” You say, causing your daughter to smile as she nods her head at the group.
“It’s nice to meet you Samantha, These three are Luci, Chris, and Sophia.” Steve explains, causing the group to also smile at the girl.
“Shall we keep moving?” You ask, moving out of the way for the little ones. They all yell excitedly as the take off to the next house. Steve lets you lead him as you two trail closely behind the children.
“So.. I do not want to sound rude or to peer into your life. Especially since we just met and all. But i um… notice dad is nowhere in sight..?” Steve stumbles over his sentence. You just smile and shrug.
“Dad got me pregnant just after i graduated college. I thought we were gonna get married but the moment i told him i was having her, he skipped town and has not been seen since. I don’t mind you asking about it. I honestly don’t care what anyone thinks. I have raised Samantha perfectly without a man by our side…” You explain as the kids come running down the steps of another house and compare their candy. They soon take off once again.
“I respect that.. Not everyone needs someone to be by their sides at all times.” Steve answers, grabbing at his neck nervously. You pick up on his nervous tick quickly and are soon trying to correct it.
“It’s not that i don’t want someone by my side. It’s just people are always questioning and trying to advise that i need someone by my side. And no offence, but we just met and i don’t really need a stranger telling me how to live my life. Now, if you were to ask me for coffee and we got to know each other and you became the man of the house, then i would take your advice.” You explain once again.
“Look, i don’t mean to come off as someone who is trying to tell you how to live your life. Samantha is a beautiful individual, a mirror of her mother might i add. I just was curious. I would love to take you out to coffee and get to know you.” Steve answers once again, sending you a nervous smile.
“I would love that as well.” You smile back at him, you two continuing behind the kids. A good hour passes before the little ones are soon zipped up in their coats and getting tired of walking around. The group stops to get some hot cider from one of the families that you know and take a quick break. Steve walks away from the group to get a hold of one of the mothers but soon returns with an angry look.
“Everything alright?” You ask, getting a tad worried.
“None of the parents are answering. I can’t talk them home to an empty tower because they will just be running around, eating candy…” He trails off, looking down at the group of children.
“Why don’t you come to my place? Samantha and i usually get home, dump her candy on the coffee table and sort it out. I then pop popcorn, put in It’s the great pumpkin charlie brown, and we snuggle while snacking. What’s adding three more kids and another adult to the mix?” You ask. Steve looks back at the group of giggling children. He stands silently before whipping his phone out again. You guys stand there as he types away on his keyboard.
“Okay, i am down. I just texted Natasha.” Steve says, smiles spreading across both of your faces. “Guys, we are gonna go with Y/N and Samantha. Sound good to you?” You guys earn excited yes’s as they all get up and grab their buckets of candy. Steve gathers the cups quickly and throws them away.
“Follow me!” You exclaim as Samantha grabs your cape. She then grabs Sophia’s hand who grabs chris’s hand who grabs Luci’s. Steve walks closely behind the group as you all make your way to your apartment.
Once you guys reach the apartment and are inside, Steve helps the little ones get their jackets off and headed towards the living room.
“You’ve got a great place here!” He calls out as you make your into the kitchen to pop the popcorn.
“Thanks!” You call back, grabbing the popcorn box from the cabinet. You unwrap two bags and place one in the microwave. You hit the popcorn button then go searching for your big bowl. You pull out the bowl and set it on the counter. The microwave soon signals that the first bag is done. You pull it out and put the second one in. Once the popcorn has started, you open the first bag and the steam comes streaming out. You smile at the smell and soon pour the light puffs of deliciousness into the bowl. The microwave beeps once again and you soon grab the second bag out. You pour it’s contents into the bowl and make your way to the living room. You reach the doorway but soon stop in your tracks. The scene that has taken place in the living room just melts your heart. Samantha has made her way onto Steve’s lap with Sophia while Chris and Luci stand super close so they can all sort out and trade their candy.
“Hey!” Steve says, causing you to drift from your quick happy moment. You place the bowl of popcorn in the middle of the coffee table.
“So it seems we all have made ourselves comfortable…” You trail off, giving Samantha a look.
“It’s perfectly okay! Living with these little ones has taught me that i will always have someone in my face.” Steve says, causing the group of the kids to all smile at you. You smile back as you move to the TV. You go searching through your movies before you find the usual Charlie Brown disk. You open it up and and take the disk out. You turn the DVD player on, place the disk in the tray. You close the player and return back to the couch with the remote. Steve picks Samantha and Sophia up, making his way to the couch. He sits down next to you. Sophia sits down in your lap and Samantha stays in Steve’s. Chris and Luci gather around on the floor between the couch and coffee table. You press play and settle into Steve’s side with Sophia settling into your lap.
It was about half through the disk and the children are all asleep. You and Steve sit silently, his arm wrapped around your shoulders. Your head lays against his chest, loving the feeling of it moving up and down. His scent of warm amber invaded your nostrils causing your senses to slowly fall asleep. Steve smiles as he lays his head on top of yours, sighing contently. This for sure was worth missing some Halloween parties.
