Gone - Part 3
@ mayfeather27 here’s part 3!!
You are now six months pregnant, and are currently living in Tony’s mansion in Ireland. You and Natasha were preparing for the rest of the Avengers to visit. New York was quiet and Tony had gotten the Fantastic Four to agree to watch over the city while they were away.
“Y/N! What are you doing? Let me get that” Tasha called out
You chuckle and squat down anyway, picking up your phone from where you dropped it. “I’m pregnant, not an invalid, Tasha”
The spy stopped beside you, “You could hurt yourself if you fall, and Thor isn’t here to bring you to the hospital”
“I’m not going to fall, and even if I did, I’m a Super Soldier, I’m pretty sure this body could take a fall. Just give it another month or so and you’ll get tires of having to pick everything up for me”
“I’ll never get tired of preserving your help, Сестра”
Sir and the rest of the Avengers have just arrived
Out of habit you look up to the ceiling, “Thanks, JARVIS”
You are quite welcome, Ms. Y/N. May I inquire on the state of your child?
“Now, I know that you have systems that monitor me all day, so you already know how the baby’s doing”
While that is true, I cannot gauge the activity of the child, or how you are feeling
“The baby’s really active today, and I’m fine, a little tired, but fine”
Thank you, Ms. Y/N. I will inform the doctor of your condition
Before either you or Natasha can move, the door bursts open and Tony walks in. when he catches sight of you he runs forward, intending to scoop you into a hug, but Tasha steps in his way
“No, Tony. You cannot be too rough with her. I will not stand for any of you to injur Y/N or the baby”
“Well it’s good to know that some things never change” Clint calls out, tossing his duffle bag onto the hallway floor
“You may be my best friend, Clint, but if you hurt her, I’ll hurt you”
“Tasha” you snap, she immediately stiffens and glances back at you, “Stop threatening them, they are on vacation. You and Thor are going to have to get used to other people touching me and my stomach.”
Tony steps around Natasha and gives you a gentle hug. “I missed you, Y/N, I haven’t had anyone to watch cheesy horror movies with”
“Well, if you’re staying until the end of the pregnancy then we’ll have plenty of time to catch up”
You pull away from Tony and walk toward Bruce, “Hello, Bruce”
Bruce blushes, “Hi, Y/N.”
Bruce’s eyes flash green, “He missed you, too. There hasn’t been a code green since you left. I was wondering if we could go outside and he could …”
Ever since you had joined the Avengers you had made it your goal to bring Bruce and Hulk closer. You had wanted them to understand each other. Eventually Hulk had calmed, would only come out if Bruce wanted him to, or if he was needed. There were practically no more unwanted transformations, and Bruce was a hell of a lot happier than he had been before.
“I’d love to see Hulk, maybe after dinner?”
“Yeah, I’d really like that”
Captain Rogers and Thor are requesting assistance at the quinjet
“Never mind, JARVIS, we got it” Steve called
“Steve!” You quickly waddle over and hug the other Super Soldier, “I missed you!”
“I missed you too, Y/N” Steve gently holds you at arm’s length, “Wow, I think you’ve gotten even bigger since the last time we video chatted”
You chuckle, “Yeah, the baby just keeps on growing!”
Steve’s face suddenly falls, “I’m so sorry, Y/N”
You look up at him, confused, “Why are you sorry? You just got here”
Steve sighs softly, squaring his shoulders, “I told Bucky about the pregnancy”
You choke, your eyes widening in horror, “Steve …”
“I didn’t tell him where you were, or where we were going, but he saw one of the pictures that you sent us. He was furious, calling you names for going and getting you knocked up right after your breakup. I just got so angry, we ended up in a huge fight. I shouted at him that the baby was his” Steve locks eyes with you, “I’m so sorry”
You lift a trembling hand up to your mouth, “I think I need to sit down” You whisper.
Immediately Tasha takes you by the elbow and leads you to the living room, gently sitting you down on the couch. “James has been looking for you for about a month and he hasn’t found us yet. Please calm down, worrying isn’t good for the baby”
“Of course I knew. Steve called me as soon as Bucky stormed out of the Tower. JARVIS has been keeping track of which Houses he’s been to already”
“I didn’t want Bucky to know about the baby” You look up at Tasha, frantically grabbing her arm, “I don’t want him to take my baby away! You guys can’t let him take my baby”
Steve sits down beside you, “If he even tries to get to you, he’ll have to go through all of us”
You nod quietly and look up at everyone in the room. All of them were nodding along with what Steve had said, “Thank you guys. I think I want to take a nap, I hope you guys don’t mind”
“Go ahead, we’ll start making dinner, and get settled in”
“Thanks, I’ll be up in a little while”
Steve gently pressed a kiss to your forehead, “Let JARVIS know if you need anyone, we’ll all be right here”
Another month has passed and you are rapidly approaching your eighth month of pregnancy. It was getting increasingly difficult to walk around without someone hovering over you. Currently Bruce and Thor were out grocery shopping, Tony and Steve were talking to Phil and getting an update on New York, and Natasha and Clint were playing Mario Kart in the living room. This left you as the only one to answer the door when someone knocks.
“Gimme a minute! I’m moving as fast as I can!” You call out
Ms. Y/N, Ms. Natasha has been alerted to the knock. She has asked me to tell you not to open the door
You chuckle and take a step away from the door “Alright, not need to get nervous, JARVIS. I just wanted to see who it was”
Natasha walks up behind you and grabs the door handle. She pulls the door open about two inches and glances at the person on the other side. As soon as she sees the visitor, Tasha slams the door shut again.
“Go up to your room, Y/N” Tasha growls, pulling out one of her knives. It’s so rare for her to look anxious that is immediately puts you on edge.
“Who was it?” You whisper, dread beginning to fill you
“Сестра, please …”
You step forward and grab the door handle, “Move, Tasha”
Surprisingly she obeys, stepping away from the door, her shoulders hunching slightly in defeat. You throw the door open and freeze when you make eye contact with the person on the other side of the door.
James Buchanan Barnes stood there, his eyes sweeping up and down your body, zeroing in on your protruding stomach.
“Bucky …” His name nothing more than a breath.
He raises his eyes to yours, “Steve wasn’t lying, you really are pregnant”
You nod quietly, “Yeah, I am”
Bucky gently nudged you back inside and steps into the mansion, “Do you know how hard it was to find you? No one would tell me anything, and then they all just left. Eventually I just started going out to all of the properties that Tony owns. I’m sorry it took so long to find you, but JARVIS refused to be any help”
You could feel the shock wear off, and anger rise up to take its place. “That’s what you’re sorry for?!? For taking too long to find me!? Did you ever think that I didn’t want to be found? You left me! I didn’t want you to know about the baby! I didn’t want to force you to stay with me! Our child deserves more than that!” By the end of your rant you can feel tears flowing down your face. Tasha steps forward and hands you a tissue.
“The stress is not good for the baby, Y/N, you need to calm down” While Tasha was extremely gently with you, she rained down all her anger onto Bucky. “How dare you show your face here, Barnes! You think you can just show up and everything will be alright?!”
“I’m so sorry, Y/N” Tears were filling Bucky’s eyes, “I had to leave you, I didn’t have a choice. That day at the café Rumlow called me, he demanded that I end our relationship. He threatened to kill you, to take you back to HYDRA. He had a gun trained on you, and I couldn’t disobey. If I had you might have been killed.”
“If you think that excuse is enough, then you are wrong” Tasha growls
Bucky wasn’t listening to her though; he was only looking at you. “By the time I tracked him down and destroyed the facility, you were gone. I went back to the Tower to get some help. That was where I saw the picture of you pregnant. I just got so angry that I started calling you names and then Steve told me that the baby was mine. That was when I realized why HYDRA wanted you so badly.” Bucky let out a soft sob, “He wouldn’t tell me where you were. And then when I went back a week later everyone was gone and JARVIS wouldn’t tell me where they went. I managed to track then here, to you.” Bucky drops down onto his knees and grabs your hands, “Do you – do you think you could ever forgive me?”
You sigh quietly, “I don’t know, Bucky. I hurt when you left, it felt like you didn’t even care, like I meant nothing to you”
“I know, and I’ll do anything to make up for that! Just – please give me a second chance. I’d never have left you if I had the choice, I just didn’t see any way out of it”
“One chance, Bucky, only one, that’s all you get”
Bucky peppers kisses all over your hand, “Thank you, thank you, thank you …”
“You have to get everyone else to forgive you too, Bucky” you tell him, Bucky nods frantically, “One mistake Buck, one, and you’re gone”
“I promise, Y/N. I promise I’ll do anything to make it up to you”
“I’ve already accepted your apology, it’s the others that you have to worry about”
Does anyone have a name suggestion?
