summary: steve leaves and you struggle to cope
warnings swearing, major character death, grief, unhealthy coping mechanisms
A lump rises in your throat as you take in the sight before you. Steve - your Steve - has abandoned you for the woman he knew back in the 40s. Your eyes fill with tears but you refuse to let them fall; you won’t let him see you cry over him. That’s the last thing he deserves. After everything you’ve done for him; you went to hell and back, you stayed for him, you died for him, and at the end of the day, your efforts were fruitless. Because even the gentlest, kindest, most pure love in the world wasn’t enough for him. And at the first opportunity he got, he went running back to his past. So it was never really you, was it? It was always her.
