@avengerstories - you are my forever righthand (wo)man and I’ll love you forever because of it.
The lights are off. You’re tucked under your covers, having achieved the perfect combination of warmth and comfort that has become a rarity since the radiator decided that it only liked working every once in awhile. The sky outside your window faded to black hours ago and you’re exhausted. All of this should add up to one thing - a good night’s sleep.
It should add up to this. But it doesn’t. It can’t. Not when Bucky has once again found a way to invade your thoughts.
You groan as you roll onto your side, willing your mind to silence itself. To give you a reprieve from your thoughts. From him. But it doesn’t. It hasn’t been able to since the night, that night, when your whole world was thrown off its axis by the mere touch of his lips on yours.
