Winter Soldier x Frostbite (Reader)
AN: Hi guys sorry I’m trash, and didn’t update in so long! I was going to give up on this fic but recently I got a comment that just reminded me why I enjoyed writing these and I didn’t want to disappoint those who have actually been enjoying and reading these when I post them. This chapter is pretty angst but don’t worry things will begin to get better, no matter what has just happened. Love you guys and please comment and like if you want me to continue the series.
You burst through the doors in anger, ready to fight at any second. Before you even got a chance to look around the warehouse you were hit with great force on the side of your head. The strength of the punch sent you flying to the ground. You came to a rolling stop and groaned at the throbbing pain that now flooded through your head.
When you looked up to see who your attacker was you gasped, the sight of seeing Winter there in front of you squeezed your heart. You didn’t care if he had hit you. Maybe he thought you would be someone else, so you instantly got up to embrace your lover. But once again he punched you straight in the face making you fall down onto the ground again.
You gasped in pain, “Winter, what are yo-.” He cut you off by trying to lay another punch on you. You rolled over avoiding metal to the face again. His aggression towards you was really confusing, but right now you needed to worry about avoiding those hits. The idea of hitting him made you sick so you took a more defensive approach.
You tried to freeze his feet to the ground to make him atleast stand still, but his strength was too much. He instantly broke the ice around his feet by lifting up his leg. He sauntered around you like prey, waiting for the right time to attack instead of pouncing every second he had. His stare was intimidating and cold, he wasn’t the same person you woke up to this morning.
“Winter”, you gasped in a hopeless tone while you dodged his fists. Seeing him like this made your mind go blank, it was like you couldn’t function correctly.
“Ha, look how soft you have gotten, Frostbite”, a mysterious voice echoed off the metal walls. “You can’t even hit him back.”
Your eyes wondered, looking for the mysterious man. “Who are you?”, you shouted back in anger.
“Oh that’s not important. What is important is that the Winter Soldier is back.” The voice was deep and got louder with every second. Suddenly a man with his hands casually in his pants pockets came out of the shadows. “You’ve really lost your touch haven’t you”, he teased you in a sinister tone.
“Fuck off”, you breathed out. You were getting tired quickly, you didn’t have the same stamina as Winter. Your arms were getting sore from blocking his punches, so you swiped his legs from under him. When he fell to the ground you jumped on top of him and froze his hands and legs to the floor one last time. Surprisingly it was working quite well, considering his heavy breathing he was probably tired too.
You leaned down and pressed both of your hands on the side of his face so he could look you in the eyes. Winter’s eyes were searching for everything but you to look at, until you said in a soothing voice, “Bucky.” You could see something in his ice blue eyes change, but he still tried to escape your grasp.
“What did you do to him?!”, you shouted with pure anger at the man.
“What we should have done a long time ago”, he said. Then he went into his jacket and pulled out a red leather notebook with a star on it. Your heart dropped to your stomach when you realized what it was. “Remember this?”, he gave you a malicious smile.
You clenched your jaw, “How did you find that?”
The man walked around you and started flipping through the pages. “Oh, we have been searching for this ever since the fall of Dr.Zola.” He continued going through the book, “You see Zola was smart enough to make two copies of this notebook.” Your eyebrows furrowed in anger at the memory of burning the original book. For the split second that your guard was down, Winter broke free from his restraints and pinned you to the ground. The sound of your body smashing into the concrete ground echoed throughout the building.
The man stopped and bent down so he could get closer to you. “We are lucky Zola, was a step ahead, but I bet he didn’t think you would be the traitor”, his words lingered against your skin making chills run down your body. Your face contorted in disgust and you tried to wiggle free from Winter. The man got up again and paced around you. “Zola was a fool for trusting you, Frostbite. Without him around you thought you could just run away from the past?”
“I didn’t run, everyone left”, you snarled at him.
“Except your precious Winter”, the smile he gave made you uneasy. “Well too bad that’s all going to change once we are done here”, he said with fake empathy.
“I would rather die than work for Hydra again”, you spit at him with pure hatred.
“Well good thing that’s exactly what you’re going to do, my dear.” Winter quickly got off of you but before you could even react the man came over and kicked you in the ribs, making the gasp in pain. “We don’t need you anymore”, he said after another blow to your side. You watched Winter slowly walk out of the building between assaults. “Something went wrong with you, and I’m not going to let you get in Hydra’s way again.” He then quickly grabbed you by the throat and said with disgust and disappointment. “You clearly can’t defend yourself anyway.” With that he threw you by the throat back down to the ground. Your head smashed onto the ground and the impact made you start to slowly fade in and out of consciousness.
“It’s quite sad to see that this is how the famous (Y/N) (L/N) will be going out.” He raised an eyebrow at you, “Bet you haven’t heard that name in a long time, huh?”
“(Y/N)?”, you questioned as your brain started to sift through memories.
“Oh yes I can see it now”, he puts up to hands as if imagining the layout of a newspaper. “The American loved legend (Y/N) (L/N)’s dead body found in a tiny town in Sokovia.”
The memories began to wash over your brain, cleansing all the cover ups and lies that were told to you. Every little memory leading up to this point played in your head in seconds.
The new face of Hydra knew he had you beat. He watched your eyes change as the realization hit you. After bringing you the joy of finally remembering who you were, he wanted to take it all away. As he began to walk away you heard him say, “Alright boys, take this building down.”
You cried out in pain as you rolled on your stomach. The metal walls of the warehouse moaned as the effects of gravity started to make the building cave in on itself. Pieces from the ceiling were falling everywhere and you knew if you didn’t get up soon, you’d be dead. The excruciating pain not only in your body, but also your heart, made it so hard for you to even lift yourself. Tears started to sting your eyes as the aching consumed your body. You really thought you would make it, but before you could even get on your knees, the building collapsed on top of you.
The town people watched as their dock’s warehouse was completely destroyed in seconds. A cloud of dust shot up in the air and as it settled some people began to realize “the hero”, had not come back out of the building. Many ran to look for you through the rubble, even though they knew deep down that it was a hopeless cause.
They bowed their heads in sorrow as the search seemed to come to its end without finding you. But just as they were about to leave you woke up.
You coughed from the picked up dust irritating your lungs. You tried to move but realized you were pinned to the ground. Your head was throbbing and you couldn’t even think straight. It was so dark under the piles of metal, that you thought you had died. Although in matter of seconds you became very aware of the he agonizing pain that washed over your body. That was a harsh reminder that you were, in fact, alive.
Once again you tried to lift yourself, but it was no use. Tears stained your dirt covered face as you cried out for anybody, somebody. You thought you were going to die here, and deep down you were okay with that. You had lost the only thing you had loved, and you knew you weren’t strong enough to get him back.
Your sobs became louder as the idea of escaping became more and more impossible. “Help, please”, you wheezed out.
“Where are you?!”, you heard a distant voice.
“I’m here, I’m here. Please, I can’t do this!”, you cried.
“We can’t find you!” That sentence crushed your heart.
You accepted defeat and relaxed under the tons of rubble, as tears continued to fall. You were about to close your eyes in exhaustion when something shined in your eye. You looked at your hand and realized there was a peak of sunshine that was making your engagement ring sparkle. If sunshine was able to get through, then there must be a weak spot in the pile. You had to do this for Bucky, you couldn’t just let him go through all of this again. You knew you had to do this for Steve too. He would be so disappointed in you, if he knew you were about to give up while Bucky was in danger. Maybe if you got up in time they would still be in town. As long as they didn’t leave you knew you could get him back.
You groaned as you moved your hands, so you could bend your arms. You took a deep breath and whimpered in pain, “You can do this (Y/N), you can do this.”
You screamed as your body slowly was lifting off the ground. When your arms were fully extended out in front of you, you took a few deep breaths before getting onto your feet. A cry echoed out onto the town as you slowly squatted up, lifting all the metal that was on top of you. You could hardly hold the load any longer so you threw it to the side, impressing everyone who was watching. They ran to your side to help you climb out of the metal scraps.
They held you up as you walked, you had pushed your body way over the edge. Off in the distance you could see Babushka running towards you. As you reached the cobbled streets you completely collapsed at Babushka Marina’s feet.
Your head hung in exhaustion, “Where’s Bucky?”
She kneeled down to you level, “I’m sorry child but they’ve been gone for hours.”
Your heart sank and pained cries raked your chest. She put a loving hand on your back, “I know, my love.”
Your heartbroken tears turned into rage. You clenched your fist in anger, and your breathing was picking up. The powers that you have been repressing for years were resurfacing all at once, and you had no intention of holding anything back.
Marina could feel the energy radiating off of you and she knew that no one should be around when you go off. As she warned people to find shelter, your powers were building up.
Your whole body tingled and your mind clouded with fury. You could feel it all in your chest and when it was too much to hold any longer you let go. With a cry that shook the whole town a wave of coldness and ice traveled all around you with great power. It knocked over, and froze everything in it’s path, besides the buildings.
When the people came out, snow was falling to the ice covered ground, and there you were in the middle of all of it.
You let out a few more breaths to calm yourself down, but your body was overworked and that the last thing your body needed. You were fatigued and before your blacked out Babushka ran to your side and caught your limp body before it fell to the ground. Your vision was going blurry and you hearing was fading away. The last thing you heard was her say, “It’s time to take her home.”
