A flap of wings, "Cookie!!" the bird insists. Bucky's face splits into a grin. He grabs a pack of scones from the shelf and wheels his cart around the corner into the next aisle where Sam's arguing with Red about the goddamn not-cookie.
"I think I know what he wants," He says quietly, not wanting to startle Sam again the way he did in the graveyard that day.

Chapter 15: Ups and Downs
My good day was followed by a bad one. It was a bit like having a crash after a high. I was low and lethargic and even though I knew I needed to get moving, I was struggling to make it happen.
I lay in bed with the twins in the late morning, curled on my side as I fed them. I was wearing a simple sleep gown that was open at the front, and nothing else because I didn’t have the energy to do the full Asgardian dress. Nova had already fallen asleep and Inky was curled into his side, his three tails curled over Nova’s belly. Thour was still feeding, though her eyes were closed. Her fist was bunched into Icy’s blue fur. I worried about them being so close to each other. Babies tend to grip hard and pull hair or scratch and poke eyes without meaning to. They don’t have enough control of their gross motor functions to do anything intentionally let alone genty and I worried that one day they’d hurt the vulparev and whatever Loki had said about them defending themselves would come into play in the worst way possible.
However, Loki had assured us all that they would be fine. They were the twins' guardians and they would die before hurting them. While Loki wasn’t always trustworthy, I knew that with this, I could trust them.
Steve stepped around the outside of the mattress and lifted Nova. Inky made an annoyed chittering sound and got up, arching his back.
“Alright, alright,” Steve said, picking the vulparev up too. “I’m just taking him to his bed.”
I laughed softly and watched as Steve carried Nova and Inky down the steps of the bed. I closed my eyes and took slow deep breaths trying to clear my mind. I felt Bucky approach and the mattress dipped beside me as he lay down opposite me. The cool caress of his metal fingers traveled down my cheek and I opened my eyes. “You falling asleep?” he asked softly.
I shook my head. “No.”
“This one is,” he said, tickling the side of Thour’s cheek. Her mouth fell open and her head fell back. I smiled a little. “Eating in her sleep.”
Steve appeared at the stairs again and looked over at us. “Two down?”
“Mm-hmm…” I hummed.
He came over, this time scooping Thour and Icy up in one go. As he took them both back down the stairs I scooted closer to Bucky, who wrapped me in his arms and pressed his lips to the top of my head.
“Did you wear yourself out yesterday?” Bucky asked.
“Maybe. It felt good though,” I said.
“Yeah. And the sex,” I answered.
Bucky pulled back and looked down at me. “You had sex and didn’t invite me? That’s rude.”
I chuckled and cuddled back into him. “Grow some wings and you can come along next time.”
“I’ll get right on that,” he snarked. He ran his hand up and down my arm. “Are you going to get up?”
“Mmm…” I hummed noncommittally.
“You going to just lay here?” He asked.
“Oh, Elly,” he said, nuzzling into my hair. “Do you want me to pleasure you?” He whispered against my ear.
I bit back a laugh and nuzzled into his neck as I made that same noncommittal sound.
“Do you want me to not pleasure you?” He teased.
“I want you to not call it that,” I said.
Bucky laughed and pulled me closer to him. “No? You don’t like when your darling husband pleasures you?”
“Stop it!” I giggled, pushing him.
Wanda and Steve reappeared at the side of the bed and Wanda slipped off her shoes and crawled up, shoving herself between me and Bucky so that Buck was now holding both of us.
Because of the fact she read minds and struggled with her own mental health, Wanda had been avoiding me lately. Something that both hurt and I understood. The last thing I wanted was to cause her pain, so I was glad she was looking after herself, but I also missed her and wished she was up for taking care of me because she was so good at it. It was nice to feel her against me now.
“What are you three planning?” Steve asked.
“Nothing,” Bucky said. “Seems like Wanda and Elly are in a cuddly mood. I might just cuddle with them until Elly is ready to get up. You wanna join in?”
Steve looked at his watch, which was a little odd given time was measured differently in Asgard. “Thor said he wanted me to attend this afternoon’s council meeting.”
“And what’s your watch telling you Stevie? That it’s still morning in New York?” Bucky teased.
“Okay, smart ass,” Steve snarked, as he slipped off his shoes and got into bed behind me. “I figured out how they measure the day here and how that translates to 12 hours on earth. I just have to calculate the difference. And I still have a few hours, so we can cuddle.” He skimmed his hands over me, running them down my arms and over my stomach.
I hummed softly, closing my eyes and nuzzling into Wanda’s hair. “You sure you’re okay to be here?” I whispered.
“I missed you,” she said softly. “I feel bad.”
“You don’t have to,” I said. “I get it.”
“I know you do, and that’s worse,” she said.
I tilted her chin up to look at me and gazed down into her green eyes. “I love you so much.”
“I love you too, Elly,” she said. I leaned down and kissed her deeply.
As the two of us kissed, Steve's hand ran up to my breasts and squeezed them gently. It was a surprising unsexual move for something that should have been sexual, but it felt more like just an extension of the tender caressing he had been doing since he’d laid down with us.
I pulled back from the kiss and leaned back against Steve. “If you keep doing that, I’ll leak on Wanda.”
Steve stifled a laugh. “Sorry,” he said sheepishly.
“It’s okay,” Wanda said, nosing at my neck. “I’ll change my clothes if I need to, but that doesn’t bother me. You should know that by now.”
Almost as if to prove her point she squeezed my breast and as it started to leak, she leaned down and circled her tongue around it, licking it up. My nipple pebbled and she pulled it into her mouth. As she sucked, the slow draw of liquid pulled down making my breast ache. I moaned and let my head fall back against Steve.
“Jesus, Elly,” Bucky groaned. “What was that sound?”
“Come on now, Buck,” Steve said, reaching over and running his hand down Bucky’s chest. “You know El has a thing about her breasts.” His hand moved down to Bucky’s crotch and began to unfasten the ties on his pants as he brought his lips to my ear. “She also likes to be called a little slut. Don’t you?” He whispered so only I could hear.
“Yes,” I moaned loudly as my cunt flooded. My libido had been so low since the twins had been born and the last two days it felt like going from zero to a hundred.
“I can smell you, my little slut. Already wet for us,” Steve whispered. He lifted his head and looked at Wanda, who was still suckling on my breast as Bucky began to undress her. Her tits were free of her simple gown and Bucky was tugging it down over her hips. “Wanda, sweet girl, start fingering Elly please.” Her hand ran up under my skirts, her finger pushed between my folds and she began rubbing my clit in tight circles. “That’s a good girl,” Steve praised.
I tensed up and rolled my hips against her hand as a buzz built in my cunt and spread up to my aching breasts. Bucky and Steve got up on their knees and began to undress. They leaned over Wanda and me and kissed as they slowly rid themselves of their clothing. When they were naked, Steve grabbed my hair and pulled my head up. He brought his lips to my ear again, whispering low so only I could hear. “Use your mouth to get Bucky nice and hard, Elise. Show me what a good little slut you are.”
“Yes, Steve,” I moaned, his words adding to the pressure coiling inside my core. He pushed me forward a little and I opened my mouth, sticking out my tongue and licking over the head of Bucky’s cock.
Bucky hummed and pushed forward, sinking a little deeper into my mouth. I hollowed my cheeks around his shaft and moaned as I curled my tongue. He looked down at me and caressed my jaw, moaning deeply as his cock hardened in my mouth.
Wanda had released my breast and started sucking Steve’s cock, though her finger continued to work my clit.
When Bucky was fully hard, he started rolling his hips, gently fucking my mouth. I relaxed and opened wide for him, looking up as I started playing with Wanda’s tits. He went deeper and deeper until he was hitting the back of my throat. Bucky groaned louder and his cock leaked. The sound of his moans blended with the rest of ours.
Steve pulled my head back suddenly and I gasped and looked up at him waiting for his next instruction.
“Okay, my sweet girls,” he said, caressing Wanda’s cheek. “Make each other feel good. Let us watch.”
We lay down facing each other again and began to kiss. Our hands roamed over each other and Wanda pushed her thigh between my legs. I ground down on it and she did the same to me, her wet smearing on my skin as my own dripped from me. My breasts ached and I pushed them against her trying to relieve the pressure.
“Wanda,” Bucky said, running his fingers down her neck. “Why don’t you suck on Elly’s tits again?”
Wanda kissed down my neck and along my collarbone. I arched my back and gripped her hip, thrusting my breasts towards her. She leaned down and pulled one into her mouth and began to suck. I mewled at the slow draw through my breast and rutted against Wanda’s thigh.
“Fuck, that’s it,” Bucky groaned and began kneading Wanda’s breasts. “Good girl.”
“Elise,” Steve growled. “I want your fingers in Wanda’s pussy, right now.”
I quickly complied, slipping my fingers between her folds, and thrusting two into her cunt. She gasped and clenched around my digits, moaning into my skin. I curled my fingers inside her and began to stroke them over her walls. Steve lay down behind me, pressing his body close to mine and grinding his cock against my ass. His fingers went to my clit and he slowly started to rub it. “That’s a girl. Now, take them out, and put them inside you,” he growled against my ear.
I whimpered, my whole body tensing, and pulled my fingers from Wanda. I felt close already - like an orgasm was sitting right there ready to crash down on me. I slowly eased my soaking fingers inside myself, trying not to just knock myself right over.
“That’s my girl. Don’t come yet,” Bucky praised.
I moved my fingers slowly in and out, clenching my teeth. “Now, Elise,” Steve said. “Let Bucky suck those dirty fingers clean.”
“Fuck,” I groaned.
Steve’s hand came down on my ass with a crack, and I jerked against Wanda. “Language,” he scolded. “Now do as you’re told.”
I pulled my fingers from my cunt and offered them to Bucky. He pulled them into his mouth and moaned as he sucked them. As he did Steve wrapped his hand around his cock and guided it into my cunt. I cried out and clenched around him, gripping Wanda’s hip hard enough to bruise. She mewled and rocked her hips against my thigh again. Bucky released my fingers and moved up behind Wanda on his knees, he lifted one of Wanda’s legs onto his chest and straddled her thigh, she let go of my breast and looked up at him. “Ready, Wanda?” he asked.
“Yes… please…” she breathed.
He took his cock in his hand and guided himself inside her. She closed her eyes and moaned as he filled her. I pulled her into a passionate kiss. Her lips were sweet and puffy and I nipped at them. She matched my fervor, tangling one hand into my hair. Bucky and Steve thrust into us, slowly at first, but soon their hips were pistoning as they railed into each of us. Steve leaned over me and sucked one of Wanda’s breasts and I rubbed her clit quickly. She groaned into my lips and her body shuddered beside me.
I felt like I was falling apart at the seams. My muscles spasmed and my legs trembled. Steve wrapped a hand around my throat and gently squeezed and that paired with the frantic kiss with Wanda meant I couldn’t breathe. I pulled back with a gasp and all at once, my orgasm hit. I cried out loudly, jerking between them as it crashed through me.
My orgasm seemed to drag Wanda’s over with it. She whimpered and clenched her teeth like she was trying to fight it, but I’d felt it too completely and with a cry, she shuddered around Bucky’s cock.
They both pulled out and for a moment I was confused as to what was happening. Wanda rolled away from me and I looked around a little perplexed as Bucky and Steve changed places. Bucky flipped me onto my stomach and pushed his weight down on me, his arms wrapping around my chest so he could massage my tits as he sunk into my cunt.
I moaned and looked over at Steve with Wanda. She was completely dwarfed by his body, as she wrapped her arms and legs around him and he slowly rolled his hips as he thrust into her. He had his forehead pressed against hers and looked deeply into her eyes.
“They look good, don’t they,” Bucky whispered.
“Mm-hmm,” I hummed, gripping the sheets.
He nipped at my earlobe as he thrust into me harder still. “You feel so good, Elly,” he hummed. “I love you so much, you know?”
“I love you too,” I whimpered. “You’re gonna make me come, Bucky.”
“Isn’t that the plan?” He asked.
I slipped a hand under myself and fingered my clit as I focused on the pleasure coiling through me and running from the threads to Wanda, Bucky, and Steve.
I jerked back against him as a second orgasm hit, my cunt clenching around his cock. He groaned and his hips began to stutter and just as he jerked forward and released inside me, Wanda’s orgasm hit too and she arched up under Steve with a loud moan. Steve continued to thrust, chasing his own release. As Bucky slipped from me and rolled over, Steve thrust hard into Wanda and came.
We lay together in a pile, our limbs all tangled together. Eventually, Steve and Bucky both sat up. “Shall we take a bath together? El, maybe you can go for a fly after.”
I frowned and nodded. “I’m sorry that I’m letting you down.”
“No, Elly,” Steve said, caressing my cheek. “Don’t ever think that. I’m just trying to help.”
I wrapped my arms around his neck and he lifted me. Bucky picked up Wanda and the two men carried us down to the bathroom. I felt light-headed and good but I was scared that it wasn’t going to last long. I wanted to get better for them though. So I would hang onto that feeling as long as I could.
Summary: Steve takes Bucky to the bedroom and sits him down on the edge of the bed. The sheets are rustled from the previous night, thrown aside once the sun entered the windows and warmed them up. It had been such a good morning, peaceful, as they stayed in each other’s arms until their stomachs growled loud enough to make them laugh.
And then Bucky asked the question. Where is she. And the false reality Steve was living in shattered.
