Notes – I had originally planned to take this fic one way, but the more I write, the more I’m led in a different direction. There are so many possibilities and I’m having fun trying to explore them all! As always, I appreciate all of your feedback and questions!!!
“I may not remember much, but I know that I remember Steve. The only way I can remember him all skinny and sickly is if I am Bucky Barnes. I can’t explain how I survived that fall, or how I still look 28 after all of these years, but Steve believes I’m Bucky, and I believe in Steve.”
You were about to say something, but the words died on your lips as the power suddenly came back on. “Bucky” jumped up from his stool and grabbed a knife from the block on the island as the sound of the refrigerator turning back on startled him. Before you knew what was happening, he had yanked you off of the stool and was standing in front of you with the knife outstreched. Last night he’d threatened you, but today it seemed as though he was trying to protect you. Maybe he really was Bucky Barnes. Maybe he wasn’t the bad guy after all.
“It’s just the refrigerator turning back on,” you explained as calmly as you could. You could feel him draw in a deep breath in front of you as he seemed to try to regain control of himself.
