You sat patiently as the others stood outside and decided your partner. It was somewhat peaceful, to be honest. You hadn't had much time to think freely lately, so getting to was a nice change of pace.
However, all things tend to come crashing down. You jumped slightly as the door knob jostled across the room.
What? You were in your own world for a while there. Who wouldn't jump?
Contemplations of these thoughts were interrupted as you took in the person before you -red face and all.
"Hey Steve." You smiled. "That's a good color for you."
"I'd like if you'd not tease me right now, [Name]." Steve sighed, rubbing his neck.
"Oh come on. It's just ME, Steve. I don't bite
..well, at least not much." You grinned.
"You're spending too much time with Tony." Steve deadpanned, blush gone.
"That I am, Cap. That I am." You chuckled.
"Well, so long as you know
" The super soldier shook his head as he sat next to you.
"Tony will be Tony. There's not much we can do to change him or his corruptive ways." You shook your head as well with a smile.
Steve chuckled at that lightly. You turned to say something else when you noticed a distance of about 3 feet between the two of you.
"Uh, any particular reason for the excess space Cap?" You raised an eyebrow.
"No, not at all." Steve answered robotically, visibly stiffening.
Steve? You ok?" You asked moving to slide closer. Steve stood quickly and stepped out of your reach.
"I'm fine. Why do you ask?" He replied in a soldierly way.
"Ok. NOW you're worrying me." You stood. "What is it? You can trust me you know."
"Nothing's wrong." Steve tensed as you came closer. "I don't know what you're talking about."
"Steve, you're overly tense." You sighed.
"Am not." Steve replied indignantly.
"Are too." You rolled your eyes.
"Will you quit acting like a child!?" You snapped.
"Wasn't my intention." Steve replied as a soldier.
"Steve, seriously." You crossed your arms. "What's wrong. I can't help if I don't know."
"It's really nothing
"He answered, standing ram-rod straight.
" You placed both hands on him arm, causing him to jump slightly. "Please
You weren't usually one to beg, but he had you worried sick by now. What happened to the captain of sun and smiles you knew? He was always so welcoming and comforting to you, since the day you met. He was you shoulder to cry on, the one you went to with good news first, the best friend you never had
..or at least a close second to the only one you had known.
Steve was the only one who understood that pain best; because the two of you could have saved the friends you lost. You could have done it, but both of you failed to do so. It was a wound you both tried to heal for the other. And so far, it worked.
Though, it had a greater effect on you than you'd anticipated. The super soldier had worked his way into your heart almost immediately, but it had been undetectable to you. Now you couldn't imagine life without him. It scared you when you first realized the attraction- yes attraction- but now it made you feel closer to him. So his rejection of your advances hurt.
Steve seemed to recognize that hurt from the look in your eyes, because he himself got a pained look in his own eyes.
" Steve mumbled pathetically.
you can tell me
" You cooed, stroking him arm lightly.
I don't think I'm comfortable touching you
." Steve blushed furiously.
wat?" You blinked uncomprehending.
.I have to touch you THERE right? It's a rule
" Steve replied burying his face in hands.
"What? Who told you that?" You furrowed your brow.
" Steve mumbled behind his hand shield.
"Tony." You repeated as Steve nodded. "Do me a favor."
"What?" Steve raised his head curiously.
"Remind me to kill Tony when this is all over." You glared at the door.
"Ok, but why?" Steve asked with furrowed eyebrows of confusion.
"Because he lied to you about the rules, Steve." You looked him dead in the eye. "You DON'T have to touch me there."
For several moments, the two of you stared at each other. Neither of you blinked as Steve processed the information you had given him. As quickly as it started, silence ended.
"You're going to kill him later, right?" Steve asked calmly.
"Yup." You replied in a similar tone.
"When you go, take me with you." Steve hissed, evil aura emanating from him.
"Deal." You smirked, glancing toward the door.
-Meanwhile, Tony doubled over with a sneeze outside.-
"So, since we've settled that, what now?" Steve asked scratching his head.
"Well, I'm pretty sure we're being monitored; so I guess we play the game?" You shrug.
"WHAT!?" Steve jumped. "HOW!?"
"Oh my god, relax would you?" You groan. "I wasn't finished."
.Sorry." Steve blushed.
"Anyway, we'll have to play. I don't think Tony will let us out otherwise." You sigh. "So, my thinking is that I touch YOU."
"Will that work?" Steve cocked his head to the side. "I thought I had to touch you."
"The game goes either way, Steve." You laugh. "It doesn't matter who goes first."
"Oh." Steve nodded. "Ok. Lay it on me."
You had to bite your lip to keep from making a 'that's-what-she-said' joke while walking over to him. That did nothing to hide your smile though. Steve noticed, bu dismissed it as you put one hand on his shoulder.
"Are you nervous?" You asked.
"No." Steve smiled at you.
You placed your hand on his elbow.
You lowered your hand to touch his.
"What about now?" You teased. "Do my lewd actions make you nervous?"
"As lewd as they are, no nervousness at all." Steve laughed.
You continued to touch him like that all over- his head, face, knees (You made him sit when you got to the legs), feet, toes, etc. But there was a limit to innocent places to touch. You had thought of every body part that wouldn't seem weird, but still ran out. Now all that was left were his
intimate areas. Hesitantly, you reached out and rested a hand on Steve's collar bone. He jumped.
"Are you nervous?" You whispered, looking at the floor.
"No." He breathed.
You shifted you hand to his chiseled chest.
"Nervous?" You glanced at him with a red face in order to gauge his reaction.
"Nope." Steve smiled at you slightly.
Your hand rested on his abs next. (Sweet Mary mother of god, that serum did wonders.)
"N-Nervous?" You looked him in the eye, blush growing redder.
"Not in the least." Steve whispered to you.
You felt your hand land on Steve's thigh.
"Are you nervous?" You flushed brightly.
"No." Steve smirked.
Looking down, you realized there was only one place left to touch. And it was
Oh hell no.
"Steve?" You stated.
"Are you SURE you're not nervous?"
.I am." You deadpanned. "I am NOT touching you there."
You retracted your hand and started to pull away
only to have Steve grab your wrist. You looked up at him curiously.
Steve smiled down at you and placed a hand on the side of your face. Slowly, he pulled you to sit on his lap and looked into your eyes.
"There was one place you didn't touch." The super soldier murmured, leaning closer slowly.
"Oh really?" You breathed.
"Yep." Steve whispered. "You missed right here."
The small gap between you was closed instantly. At first, you expected to fight back; but that was pushed from your thoughts as you kissed Steve just as fervently as he kissed you. It felt so right, like nothing could go wrong. And it made you know the exact reason why you loved him.
Yes, love. That old idea that everyone dreams of, but not all find. You were just one of the lucky ones.
The moment ended too soon for your tastes, but you smiled nonetheless.
" Steve chuckled. "I love you. I love you a lot
if that wasn't obvious."
Your smile widened and you hugged him tightly.
"I love you too."
Maybe this game wasn't so bad after all.
"So, would touching there count as fondue or something else?" Steve asked innocently.
"Oh Steve." You sighed. "Whatever will I do with you?"
And so began your quest to save Steve from naivety.
Extended Ending 2
"What do you think is happening in there?" Peter asked looking at his watch. It wasn't supposed to take this long, was it?
"Cap probably lulled her to sleep with his prudish ways." Wade smirked.
"Or maybe he lulled her to sleep from something ELSE." Tony wiggled his eyebrows suggestively.
"Do tell." Clint leaned forward. "I'm curious about what you whispered to Steve before pushing him in the room."
"Oh, nothing much." Tony smirked. "Just that one of the rules was to pleasure her down there."
"Oh, you bad man." Clint smirked himself. "How could you lie to him so?"
"That's exactly what we're wondering." Your voice sounded behind them.
Tony turned around slowly to be greeted by a glare from Steve and your 'business' face. Oh. This won't end well.
"Should I start running?" Tony asked.
"It would be a wise move, yes." You replied.
"Then wise I shall be." Tony nodded before bolting away.
The two of you were quick to follow.
