Author’s Note: This is my submission for @whotheeffisbucky AU Writing Challenge! I picked the artist!AU because I have no self control. It went in a little bit of a different direction than I had planned, but here it is!
You had met Bucky a year ago, just before graduation. You guys had one of those really casual friendships where you could hang out and talk for hours, but…you weren’t sure what exactly Bucky’s job was, just that he worked with his best friend. Now that you were thinking about it, did he know anything about your job beside the fact that your boss’s name is Tony?
It wasn’t that you didn’t care about what he did for work, but there was so much other stuff to talk about. And to be honest, after a long week, the last thing you wanted to talk about was your job at Stark Art Gallery. It seemed like Bucky was of the same opinion, because he never brought up work either.You thought about all of this as you got ready for another day on the job. The ringing of your phone brought you back to reality.
“Hey, doll.” You felt an easy smile grow on your face at the sound of his voice.
“What’s up, Bucky?”
“Want to meet up at the coffee shop when you get off work?”
“Alright, see you then, doll.” You could hear the smile in his voice.
The call ended, but a text came through almost immediately. It was from Miss Potts, Tony’s fiancée. She had been on a small business trip for Tony, visiting a young new artist to be featured in the gallery. Apparently, he was on board and would be bringing his portfolio for Tony to view – today.
You flew into action, getting the rest of your belongings you would need for the day and hurrying out the door. You loved your job and Tony was a great boss, but you would need to be on top of everything today if Tony was going to be discussing business with this artist. To be a Stark Artist was a big deal. And Tony was kind of intense. So not only would you be taking care of the rest of the gallery, but you also had the task of censoring Tony so he didn’t scare the kid away.
