here to the end of the line
I keep saying, I want Bucky coming back to little itty bitty pre-serum Steve! And Steve would be so concerned and yet STERN, and upright and moral in a way that not even modern Steve can be.
You understand me and my needs
OKAY BUT HOW DARE YOU WHEN I’M NOT HERE
Somehow, he knew this place. He knew this alley.
The Mission is finished. Return to base. But something pulled him towards it, into it. Nostalgia?
But, the Winter Soldier had never been here. Had he?
A sudden pain shot his head, making him bend over in pain. The pain soon subsided, and he stood up. But there was someone standing in front of him. A small young man looked at him and grinned, wiping blood off of his busted lip.
He must’ve gave the man a concerned look, because the man grinned wider and waved his hand.
“It’s just a busted lip; the guy just punched me and ran. Don’t worry about me –—-, he was just a mook.” The pain started again, causing him to stagger a bit and his metal arm felt extremely heavy. “Hey, hey, –——, is something wrong?” He managed to stand up, but his vision was blurry and waves of…emotion he didn’t where from or what for came crashing down around him.
“I-I don’t know. I don’t remember.” He suddenly felt arms around him and a calming voice telling him that everything was going to be okay. He found his head on the man’s shoulder, using his arms against the building to hold himself up against the small man’s frame.
“——, It’s me, –—-. I’m here for you. I’m with you to the end of the-”
“I don’t remember!” He nearly screamed into the man’s shoulder, finding his face wet. In an instant, his mind became clear. The sun was setting in the empty valley, and the Winter Soldier’s eyes felt dry and puffy. Why was he standing in this empty alley? The mission was complete. It was time to get back to base.
