If I dont respond to your insult it means what i wanted to say was too mean and I decided to let you live
the first few nights after steve finds him he tries to tough it out alone, shivering fitfully no matter how many blankets he piles on top of himself. he knows steve went through so much to track him down, and he’s been endlessly patient and understanding when bucky struggles to speak or flinches back from even the gentlest of unexpected touches; he doesn’t want to make any more trouble.
he’s trying so hard not to think about the hunk of icy metal that’s a part of him, sending not-entirely-temperature-related chills through his bones, that he doesn’t notice steve come in. it takes a cautious hand on his (warmer, flesh and bone) shoulder, a soft “bucky?”, before he starts and meets steve’s eyes.
as always, they match the warmth seeping into bucky where steve’s hand still rests. the contrast is near-painful, and he can’t stop his shiver.
"are you okay?" steve drops to one knee at the side of the bed, hand sliding to cradle the back of bucky’s neck.
"cold," is all bucky can manage, closing his eyes and curling deeper into his pathetically inadequate nest of blankets.
there’s a pause, only their breathing - bucky’s a fitful counterpart to steve’s deep, even breaths - breaking the silence. “would you -” steve finally says, and swallows. “i mean, would you be okay with me joining you?”
bucky’s tired enough that the words take a long moment to sink in. the sense of relief once they do is profound. “please,” he says, fervent.
it’s the work of a minute for bucky to move over, for steve to push a few of the extra blankets to the end of the bed. he slides into the bed behind bucky, a long, solid line of blessed warmth down his back, soft breaths on the back of his neck. steve’s arms curl around him, pulling him in tight, and bucky sighs out a long breath of relief.
au where everything is the same except bucky has a ‘you tried’ star on his shoulder
