Sad Beautiful Tragic
“God’s righteous man. Pretending you could live without a war.”
Ultron’s words haunt Steve long after the battle is over. He knows that the machine was right. The Captain had been living with you, so caught up in your entire relationship that he thought, if he could just ignore all of the fighting, it would leave him. But it was all a lie. He was still a Captain, and you were still a woman with a soldier on the front lines of war.
Sad, beautiful, tragic.
It’s a love story that has been written on too many pages. It crosses his mind all too often. He can hardly focus on anything else. Steve knows that he can’t leave you behind. He can’t allow you to face that kind of heartbreak. He knows all too well what it feels like to lose someone close to him. And he can’t put that kind of hurt on your heart.
