Our Eyes Ch. 3 (Steve Rogers x reader)
Good evening lovelies! I hope you’re all doing well. Tonight I’m at my school’s spring musical, which is really good, by the way. I’m feeling better today, I got to catch up with one of my friends who I haven’t seen in a while which was nice. Anyways, here’s chapter three of Our Eyes. Enjoy! xoxo
Description: You’re a quiet girl who hangs around coffee shops, capturing what you see onto paper. You’ve always minded your own business, never getting involved with anyone in any relationship for reasons you’d rather not say out loud. He’s a super soldier who keeps to himself, never one to really talk to anybody that he doesn’t have to. He’s been through a lot, but never talked about it, always shoving it into the back of his mind. A chance encounter makes some sort of connection between you two and suddenly everything changes. Your eyes tell a story, as well as his, but will either of you find the courage to say it?
You had been rummaging through your closet for hours now, trying to find the perfect outfit for this date you were going on with Steve. Ugh, this is too fancy. Now, this is too casual. I look stupid in this. What if I just showed up in sweatpants? All these thoughts were running through your head as you tried on outfit after outfit. Your room was cluttered with all of your discarded clothes with shoes on the bed and dresses draped over chairs. You placed your hands on your hips and huffed out a breath, blowing a stray piece of hair out of your face. An idea came to mind and you dashed away back to your closet. Sifting through the little clothes that were left hanging, you found a F/C dress that you had bought a while ago that you just never got around to wear.
You stripped yourself of your old t-shirt and sweatpants and slipped it on. It was sleeveless, simple, black dress. It was perfect. Not knowing what you would be doing on this date, you decided to wear a pair of flats with it and finished off the look with your favorite necklace. Your hair fell effortlessly around your shoulders, framing your face nicely. The light makeup you wore brought out your eyes and highlighted your cheekbones. You usually never put this much effort into how you looked, but you thought you should probably dress yourself up a bit since you were going on a date with the hottest guy you’ve ever met.
Just as you had slipped your shoes on, the door bell rang. You took one last glance at yourself in the mirror and took a deep breath. You placed your hand on the door knob and turned it. As you opened the door, you were met with a smiling Steve.
“Hi.” You were so captivated by how well he had cleaned up, that was all you could say.
“Hey. Wow, you look… stunning.” He met your eyes and smiled. You averted your eyes away from him, your face slightly tinting pink. “Are you ready to go?” He offered his arm to you and you nodded, wrapping yours around his toned bicep.
The two of you strolled down the sidewalk, asking each other about work, hometowns, and even stupid, but funny questions. He led you down streets, turning corner after corner. You could tell that he knew this place like the back of his hand. The two of you cracked jokes and laughed at each other, almost as if you two had known each other for all your lives. You just felt so comfortable around him, being with him was so effortless.
You turned left down a street, leading you onto a small, cobblestone one that featured small shops, an artisan bakery, and a hidden restaurant at the end of the street. You led you to it and opened the door for you, being the gentleman he was. You took the elevator up to the rooftop where a balcony overlooked the city. There were only a few other couples there and you realized that this place was kind of like a little secret. He pulled out your chair for you, and took a seat across from you at the table. He smiled, the nervousness evident in it and his voice.
“Do you like it?” He crinkled his eyes, raising his eyebrows.
“Do I like it?” You were admiring the view of the night skyline of New York City. “Steve, it’s amazing. I love it.” You turned to him and gave him a genuine grin. A weight was lifted off of his shoulder and he suddenly felt so much more relieved. The food was amazing, the view was beautiful. You told him about when you moved to New York, and his eyes lit up as he told you about his childhood memories. His childhood seemed kind of outdated, he mentioned radios and old telephones, but you brushed it aside. Maybe his parents liked that kind of stuff. After dinner, you decided it was getting late, and you had work tomorrow, so you told him it would be best if you went home. He told you he was going to walk you home, that someone as gorgeous as you shouldn’t be walking by themselves. You gladly accepted, one for the fact that you got to spend more time with him, and two, you got to hold his bicep.
“You haven’t said much about yourself besides your childhood… tell me more about yourself?” Your curiosity was peeking through your little smile and bright eyes.
“Hmm, well-you see-”
“You know what? It’s okay, you can tell me when you’re ready.” You gave him a kind smile and pecked his cheek. His face turned slightly red. You tilted your head into his shoulder as he walked you down your street. He walked you up the steps and held your hand.
“I had a really nice time, F/N. I really want to see you again. Would you let me?” His eyes softened, and he stepped up a couple more steps, so that his face hovered close to yours.
“Yeah. I’d really like that. I really want to do this again.” You gazed up into his ocean blue eyes, and flitted your eyelids down to his lips. He did the same. And then the gap closed, the feeling of his warm and soft lips against yours. Fireworks went off in your head, butterflies formed in your stomach. Your head seemed to spin and you simply forgot everything that happened next as you faded into complete bliss…
I hope you all liked it! I think I’ll post three new pieces tomorrow to make up for this kind of crappy chapter. I’m so sorry about this lol. Have a wonderful evening, xoxo
