Kings Stucky AU part 1
James Buchanan Barnes, known as Bucky by family and close friends, is crown prince of America (???). While behind enemy lines the 107th is ambushed and taken hostage. The only soldier who seems willing to go that far behind enemy lines to save the captured soldiers is, fresh to the front line, Captain Steven Rogers. Being that Steve was the only person willing to go that far to not only save the Prince, but also all of the other captured soldiers, he becomes an American hero and is invited to the capital for a personal meeting with the king and a banquet/ball in his honour.
While there Steve and the prince start to become very close. Steve can see so much rage, and fear pent up inside of Bucky, and all he really wants to do is help him. Bucky on the other hand feels as though he owes Captain Rogers his life, and anything that goes with that, but there is also a layer of jealous there. Bucky was always the best soldier and now all eyes are on Steve.
After cornering Steve at the ball and demanding to know what it is that he really wants, Bucky and Steve end up in one of the service closets, getting a lot closers than either of them had ever really planned. But Steve is shocked when, after it’s all over, Bucky pushes him off and tells him (against his own real desires) it can never happen again.
