WHO: Steve Rogers (MCU) & Bucky Barnes (MCU) WHAT: Steve tells Bucky the BIG PLAN WHERE: The gym WHEN: After his talk with lil T RATING: Low
Bucky was always up for going to spend some time with Steve. He was his best friend, after all. So when Steve had asked him to come meet him at his makeshift gym, Bucky of course agreed. It'd been a little bittersweet after the whole age-shift situation had passed. Being so young, those feelings he and Steve had shared for each other even as very young teens had come back a bit, even though they'd both still held onto their connections with Clint and Tony, despite not necessarily understanding the depth of them or what they meant. When they suddenly found themselves grown again, it brought with it a bit of nostalgia and while it didn't change anything at all, they'd been reminded of what had once been. Bucky didn't dwell on it, and he doubted Steve did either. It actually kind of.. reaffirmed that even though they'd kind of fucked up with each other they'd still wound up finding true love that they both were utterly head over heels for and learned to love each other as best friends again. It was good. Things were good.
He'd gotten a little caught up at home so he was running a little bit later than he'd intended. Tony the Goat had lost his glasses and fuck all if he hadn't been screaming at Bucky non-stop until he found them. Even the Bucky tried to plead with him that he'd look when he returned later or that he'd give him some extra leftover pizza if he could just go, the damn goat screamed even louder. It'd turned out that the Pokemon in the house were playing a joke and had hidden them in Bette Davis' electric wool. But that crisis was averted (after some serious static electricity shocks on Bucky's end) and the goat and his sunglasses were reunited. Fuck.
Bucky entered into the gym, having run over. It didn't leave him winded but his hair was a bit messed up from the jog. "Steve?" He called out, looking around for his best friend.
