“Y/n, Why don’t you just tell us, what happened?” all of your were In a room, And all eyes were on you. everyone was angry, They occasionally raised their voice. Which made you feel guitly
“Natasha, It wasn’t me. I was beating up those guy’s asses not give them classified formation.” You felt like you were trapped. The mission went badly since ‘you’ almost killed three Shield agents by burning them, and gave Hydra Information about the Avengers. “I wouldn’t do that.”
“That woman right there looks exactly like you Y/n. Do you have an evil twin sister we don’t know about?” Tony put a picture in front of you as he talked, And he was right. But so, so wrong.
“m-maybe Hydra is working on another experiment make a clone.. I saw her too..” You weren’t sure if your theory would make them stop blaming it all on you. And their silence made you realize that, that wasn’t going to happen.
“Enough of the excuses Y/n! A lot of people got In trouble just because you can’t control you powers and Can’t keep your mouth shut!” Tony’s words hurt you but you just strayed silent.
“We decided that…Instead of holding you as prisoner here. Maybe we should– You should leave.” You dropped your head, And sighed softly.
“Why won’t you trust me?”
You met Steve on the way out, He tried talking to you but you waved him away. He followed you on your way to your room and that’s when you turned around to look at him. His heart breaking as his eyes bet your teary ones.
“Why didn’t you tell them that It wasn’t me?” Your words came out as a whisper. “Is It Because I came from Hydra? If that’s the reason… Then I think you forgot that I’ve been In this team for Years, and yet I’m still trying to convince everyone that they can trust me.” You gave him a sad smile. “I thought that when you told me that you loved me, I finally found someone who trusts me back.”
“Y/n..” Steve trailed off, But he didn’t know what to say. An apology? An Explanation? He didn’t get to say anything before you shut the door on his face.
It’s been Two years since you were kicked out from the Avengers. You worked In a small diner near a flat that your rented. You always found it funny how someone that was once a 'hero’ Became a simple person in the end.
Your first month without the Avengers was filled with stress, And sadness. You’d find papers with your alias on the front page, Questioning where you were or why you weren’t with them anymore. The news died down on the fifth month. You found a stable Job, A good apartment you even adopted the dog. Sometimes you’d wonder how they’re doing. If they still think you’re the person who can never be trusted.
You’ve been getting a lot of call and texts from the team but you chose to avoid all of it, Wondering how they found your number. Until one day at work.
“Can I order an espresso please?” Your thoughts were cut off by a familiar voice. You looked up and saw Steve In a casual outfit.
“What the fuck are you doing here Rogers?” You always thought that Steve’s name and a curse word wasn’t appropriate to be In one sentence. But here you are.
“You were right, Hydra was working on a cloning device we thought you were dead–”
“Can you wait for me until my shift is over? There’s a long line behind you.” Steve nodded and walked away, He sat on a table nearest to you as possible, distracting you as you took the next person’s order.
“So you destroyed it already?” He nods. “Well That’s good, at least no one’s going to get blamed for it anymore… have a good day Steve.” You kiss his cheek and walked away.
“Y/n, we were thinking of bringing you back.” You were just about to open your door as he said those words, You rolled your eyes and gestured for him to come with you.
Steve looks around, and you took your chance to study his features, His face was still the same, Those beautiful blue eyes that you missed staring at. Your dog ran to Steve and he crouched down to pet him, you watch them In admiration as he checked his dog tag.
“Capsicle?” He laughed and Capsicle barked.
“It was supposed Captain Spangles so I named him Capsicle.” After you finished saying your dog’s name a loud shatter of glass was heard and a bullet hit your shoulder, and your side, you winced in pain and clumsily dropped down to the ground hoping not to be shot again. the glass cut your thighs, You cursed yourself for not thinking of it.
“Did you plan this?” You you yelled at Steve who was on the ground as well.
“Why the hell would I?!” The person kept on shooting at you, Your window was now completely destroyed.
“You showed up and soon there’s strangers shooting at me!” Capsicle ran to you and you shielded him away from the bullets. “Where’s your goddamn shield?”
“I WAS PLANNING TO VISIT YOU AND I CANY JUST CARRY IT AROUND!” You groaned In pain and In frustration. you crawled towards the next room- which was the bedroom and opened the closet door. You picked up your gun and started shooting from the bedroom window. The person ducked and you immediately ran out the room.
“Why the hell Didn’t you bring anything?” You ask the supersoldier beside you as you took the stairs on the way down.
“I was planning on recruiting you again Y/n. and your wound is bleeding a lot we should go to the hospital.”
“Oh so you didn’t plan all this to kill me?” you ignored the offer. You reached the ground floor and police came rushing In, Passing by you not noticing that you’ve been shot.
“Stop saying that, You know I wouldn’t do that. why won’t you trust me?”
“Because you didn’t trust me.”
“Where to now?” He asked after wandering around the streets for about ten minutes. Capsicle was following behind you.
“I don’t know,call your team mates maybe? and come help us because my shoulder is starting to hurt.. And it’s cold out here.” You rubbed your hands together crating a small sparkle. Steve agreed with your suggestion and pulled out his phone.
You put more pressure on your wound, your shirt was black so the blood wasn’t noticable, You looked around and started to get a little dizzy. You blinked a couple of times trying to focus.
“Y/n are you okay? we should’ve stopped somewhere..”
“Shut up.. Let’s just sit down for a moment..” you sat on the floor, but Steve just crouched down beside you with a worried look on his face.
“Get away.. You’ll get embarrassed because of me, I look like a girl who got her period.” You laughed nervously. “Look at my pants!” you heard a car pull over, You didn’t know what Steve was saying but you felt him carry you and placed you at the back of the car. you felt Capsicle licked your face and whine sadly before passing out.
You woke up because of the beeping noise, Thinking it was your alarm clock you reached out to your side and ended up dropping your arm in pain. You recalled what happened and looked around.
Steve was sleeping on the couch and Capsicle was beside him. Bruce walked In and smiled when he saw you awake.
“What’s up Banner? Did you ask Natasha out yet?” He blushed at your questions but nodded anyways.
“Yes actually, thank you for asking. Are you In any kind of pain? Your wounds aren’t hurting?” You just shake your head as a response. Your eyes wandered to Steve again. wondering why he didn’t wake yet. “He’s been here for three days. Waiting for you to wake up he really misses you. It was messed up when you left he wasn’t the same especially when we learned that you were right. and also when we heard a rumour that you were dead. We spent a couple of days looking for you, We didn’t know you changed your last name. You should give him a chance Y/n/n.” He smiled kindly at you before leaving the room.
Steve shifted a bit when the door closed. He opened his eyes and found yours, He stood up accidentally waking up Capsicle as well.
“Are you okay?” He sits on the chair beside you.
“Yep, Are you?” He nods. Silence took over until you talked. “Bruce told me You’ve been here for three days. You didn’t have to do that.”
“It’s fine. We found the man who shot you, He was meant to kill me. We’re still looking for the one who ordered him to do it.”
“Okay then, am I going home?”
“So you’re not staying?” He looks at you with sad eyes and you just smiled at him.
“I think you misunderstood my question Steve. That apartment was never my home.” You take his hand and gripped it tightly. Maybe Bruce was right… You should give him a second chance.
You were transferred to your old room, It was still the same and when you asked Steve why he told you that he didn’t let anyone go In your room when they thought you were dead. He’d sometimes lay down your bed.
The whole team visited you, which consisted of awkward silence, some tears, And apologies.
“Thor It’s okay, I’m not dead.” Thor was one of the people who was devastated about your 'death’, Since he was your best friend and you were his.
“I was just so worried…” It was unusual to see Thor so sad since most of the time he’s the one to make you smile.
“I know I’m sorry for worrying you. What about later we’ll go get some food?” A smile quickly crept up his face.
It’s been a month since you returned to the Tower, everything’s great. Steve made it up to you by taking you out on a date- With Capsicle following of course. He told you about what was happening when you were gone, And how the team regretting kicking you out.
“Steve! let’s go sit here for a minute.” You dragged him towards the park bench, you both sat down which gave you a perfect view of the children playing.
“You wanna go play?” You grinned at him.
“We’re adults we can’t just–” Before he could finish his sentence you grab his hand and walked to the empty swings. You sat down and Steve did the same but slowly, Afraid that he might break it.
“You’re not going to break it Steve. just sit down.”
“I’ll break it!”
“Trust me.” He did what you said and waited, probably waiting him to drop on the ground. But it never happened.
“See?” He rolled his eyes at you. “Scaredy cat.”
“Oh fuck off.”
“Language Captain.” Your conversation went on, Probably the best one you had for a while. The best thing was your trust started to build up knowing that none of you are going to break it.
