Ironwinter "You need to go." or "I don't want you." because I could use some angst please.
Is this angsty enough for you, nonnie? Because I aim to please ;D
Of all the terrible things Bucky had done, this might actually be the worst. Tony was staring at him in confusion, coffee cup halfway to his lips. Perhaps Bucky should have picked a better time for this, but he wanted to get it over with as soon as possible.
“I’m sorry, what?” Tony asked, but his words lacked their usual confidence.
“I said, we should break up.” Bucky managed to maintain eye contact, but it took everything he had.
Tony blinked, his coffee cup lowering. Bucky could see the walls beginning to slam shut — Tony always hid behind them when he felt insecure or hurt.
“Okay. I admit that was sudden.” Tony sounded indifferent, but Bucky knew better. It was the carefree kind of nonchalance that Tony used whenever he felt like he’d lost control of the situation. Unsurprisingly, his boyfriend of six months suddenly dumping him without warning qualified as one of those times.
With effort, Bucky kept going, reminding himself that he had to do this. There was no other way. “Yeah, I know,” he said. “We gave it a try, but I don’t think it’s gonna work.”
Bucky hated himself.
