warnings: a little bit of angst
10 years. That’s a decade and also the amount of time you and Bucky have known each other. It has also been 10 years since the battle against Thanos was fought. You lost Natasha, your best friend, and Steve, your boyfriend back then. You were heartbroken. You’d lock yourself in your room for weeks in a row. You had no one to talk to. Tony was a father figure to you but he decided to retire after the whole thing went down. He wanted to be with Pepper and Morgan which is understandable. You were thinking about retiring yourself. Leaving this mess behind. You were inconsolable, beyond saving you thought to yourself. Until Bucky came along.
There’s a knock on the door “Doll? Can I come in?” Shit. Shit. Shit. “Uhm, yeah, just a minute!” You yelled, flushing the toilet. You were holding a positive pregnancy test in your hand. Fuck. “Y/n are you okay?” Bucky started to get a little bit worried “I’m fine, I’m fine.” You quickly threw away the test in a trash can nearby before opening the door. “See? Was just getting ready. I’m okay, love.” You smiled nervously, hoping he wouldn’t notice. “Mhm, okay. Well, I just wanted to say goodbye. Sam and I are off to Berlin. There’s still some stuff we need to take care of over there.” You pouted, giving him your best set of puppy dog eyes. “You really have to go? Can’t Sam take care of those things?” He chuckled, picking you up bridal style as he made his way to your shared bed. “Now what kind of a man would I be if I’d let a 10-year old travel all by himself?” Bucky gently puts you down on the bed, crawling over you. You sighed, wrapping your arms around his neck. “I’ll miss you. I hate it when you have to leave.” Bucky pressed a kiss onto your temple, before showering your entire face with tiny kisses. “I know, baby girl. I’ll be back before you know it. I promise.” He pressed one last kiss onto your lips. “I love you, y/n.” And then he was gone..
One week passed and Bucky failed to show up. Bruce and the others thought nothing of it. There have been numerous times when the team thought they’d only been gone for a week but were gone for months. So you brushed it off. Until you were 4 months along and started showing. You’d wear the baggiest of clothes just so no one would notice. Except for Bruce. You decided to keep the baby although you were scared for Bucky’s reaction. Bruce had become one of your closest friends. Thank God, for Bruce. He knew a thing or two about pregnancies and even helped deliver a few when he was still in hiding. He decided to also help you during your pregnancy. Your first ultrasound session was scheduled for today and you were nervous. “It’s a girl, y/n.” Bruce said. And that’s when you couldn’t hold back any longer. You had been strong for so long. You cried happy and sad tears altogether. A girl. You’ve always wanted a girl. “Uhm, wait. Hold on, y/n.” Bruce took a closer look. His eyes growing wider. “What is it, Bruce?” You asked. “Twins.” He blurted out. “You’re having twins.” Holy shit. “It’s a girl.. and a boy.” Bruce turned his head to face you, smiling. “Congratulations.” He placed a hand on top of your shoulder, squeezing it. “Thank you, Bruce.” You smiled, but deep down inside you were dying. You had no idea how you were going to raise twins without the love of your life by your side..
