“Language!”

Staying in the operating room would only put Tony in further danger, would serve only to distract Justin and Shuri.

That didn’t mean he was leaving. Not really. Steve waited until he couldn’t wait anymore. Until things were ready to get started, and then he looked squarely at Justin, blue eyes filled with quiet desperation, ”You can do this.” the words were spoken with the sort of confidence that Steve used almost exclusively as Captain America, but here in this room, in this situation, he was simply Steve Rogers, telling someone he had met less than a year ago that he believed in him. He turned to give Shuri a nod, and then moved out of the room, taking up residence in the hallway, back straight, a hair’s breadth of space between him and the wall, shoulders squared, jaw set, and those blue eyes focused beyond the door, on the man laying in there, waiting to be made well again.

Steve might not insist on waiting inside the operating room, but he’d be damned if he was going to leave Tony.

“That’s not going away anytime soon.”

Bucky had made his way over with expediency at the messages from Steve. Add in the fact that he had heard about the tower being on fire- and he was more than a little concerned for his best friend. He froze for a moment as he registered the full scene in the hallway. There, on the one side stood Steve, awkwardly trying not to be in the way, but not truly there. On the other side, was a very familiar face. After a beat, Bucky raised a hand in idle greeting that the other him returned. He had thought for a moment that his alter would choose to ignore him- but Bucky supposed it was easier to face himself from a different world than it was to face a person who he had wronged from a different world.

He did wonder what the hell this new version was here for.

It was hardly important however, what was important was the fact that his Best Friend looked like he was about to crumble. Returning to his walk with purpose, Bucky grabbed the back of Steve's head and pulled him into a hug. "Hey." He offered quietly. "I'm here. You know I'll never make you wait alone." Letting go enough for Steve to straighten back up and meet his eyes, Bucky squeezed the blonde's shoulder. "If I bring you a chair, will you sit down?" He asked seriously. "And when was the last time you had anything to eat or drink?"

“Language!”

To say that Steve had been through quite a bit over the last few days would be a massive understatement. He knew it, intellectually; he was aware that he wasn’t coping, that he wasn’t dealing with anything, but right now, he had no ability to start. Not with Tony in that operating room, undergoing heart surgery that had become an emergency operation because his faithful AI had seen ripping out his reactor to be his only option at getting out from the influence of the Soul stone. He didn’t lean against the wall, he was too stiff, too tense for that. Instead he stood directly across from the door, eyes pinned on the small window that showed far too little of what happened in the room beyond to satisfy the super soldier.

So distracted was he that Steve didn’t even realize that he wasn’t alone. He hadn’t noticed the other Bucky’s presence, and even when his own approached him, Steve didn’t budge, his eyes never moving away from the door.

For a moment, just a split second when Bucky grabbed Steve into a hug the blonde didn’t move, tension holding him rigid. But only for a second. When Steve relaxed into his friend’s hold, it was sudden and all at once, reaching to hug Bucky back, forehead dropping against Bucky’s flesh and blood shoulder. Steve didn’t sob, he didn’t let so much as a single tear out, but he took the comfort being offered, too close to falling apart to manage more strength than that in the face of his best friend.

When Bucky pulled back a little, Steve straightened, blue eyes bright but determined. He wasn’t going to cry over what amounted to be a damn dream. And he wasn’t going to cry over Tony, because that felt like giving up on him. And damn it, Tony was going to come out of this. He was going to be fine. ”I know you won’t, Buck. Doesn’t make the waiting easy, though.” For the first time since he’d arrived at the makeshift operating room, Steve tore his eyes off of Tony, away from the door behind which Justin was performing heart surgery on someone Steve loved. He looked at Bucky, his best friend, and offered a small, only half forced smile, ”I’ll try.”

Bucky’s question earned a frown, Steve’s eyebrows furrowing as he considered, ”I… Don’t know. How long ago did I go to the tower to see Tony? It was before that…” As if on cue, Steve’s stomach rumbled gently. Super soldier appetites weren’t meant to go hours and hours without food, but Steve frowned to his friend, ”I’m not going to leave him, Bucky.” Tony deserved to wake up and see that he hadn’t been abandoned. That he wouldn’t be ever again.

“That’s not going away anytime soon.”

Bucky wasn't surprised by the sudden weight of his friend as he relaxed- it was something that he had known about Steve for as long as he could remember. Steve did everything he could to say resolute in the face of pain. His mouth almost quirked when he remembered the last time he really saw this. When Sarah died. The words he had said that Steve had used to give Bucky back his life.

But then he remembered that there were almost certainly more that Bucky didn't remember. Because he wasn't there for Steve when he needed it. Still didn't stop him from patting his friend on the back and speaking softly. "Yeah. I know. But I'm here, and with you til the end of the line. No matter what."

He gave Steve the look when Steve said he'd try. "No you're gonna damn well sit, even if I have to sit on you to keep you down." Bucky offered easily, smacking his friend's shoulder. He turned to go find a chair when Steve reiterated what was patently obvious to anyone who had met the man for more than five seconds.

Bucky rubbed his forehead with a laugh and groan. "I've been you friend long enough to know a losing battle when I see one. I'm not trying to get you to leave. Just trying to stop you from needing medical care when this is over." Patting Steve's shoulder quickly, he wandered off for a moment, returning with three chairs, though the other Bucky waved the offered furniture.

Putting a chair as close as he could to opposite the door without blocking anything, Bucky more or less pushed Steve down into it. He followed that up by swinging off the bag he was carrying, presenting a few sandwiches, a thermos of soup, a few bottles of water, and like. Eighty percent of an apple pie. "Eat." Bucky ordered, staring down his friend even as he casually tossed a pb and j at his alter who caught it with a nod of thanks.

Bucky had been idly watching the not him and not his Steve having their emotional reunion. He'd be lying if he said it didn't make him a little sad knowing he would never have that again. He didn't care too much though, or at least he told himself he didn't. Taking a few deep breaths, he didn't even notice that the other him had left for a moment until he was being offered a chair. Which was lovely, but Shuri was mobile unlike Tony and Bucky needed to be able to get up and protect her in need be. He did catch the sandwich with ease and a nod of thanks.

Running into a burning building made him hungry as hell.

Taking a bite before swallowing It, he signed and spoke up. "For what it's worth, I've seen Shuri take apart a man's spine and put it back together. There's no one alive I trust more."

“Language!”

Of course Bucky wasn’t surprised when Steve all but fell apart into the hug, into the comfort that Bucky was offering him. Tony wasn’t dead, wasn’t (wasn’t wasn’t wasn’t!) dying. The tears that shone in Steve’s eyes weren’t for the loss of the man in the operating room, but instead for the loss of a dream, of a life that he could remember even now, that he wanted. The tension in him, though, that almost frantic energy that bottled up inside his still frame, that was all for Tony Stark, lying in the room across from them undergoing surgery to save his life.

Till the end of the line. ”I know you are, Buck. Thank you.” The other Bucky, the one from Tony’s world if Steve had it right, was nice to have around, sure, but the man wasn’t his Bucky, wasn’t the Bucky who had fought at his side for years, who had dragged him out of fights he was never going to win… No matter that he still found himself unbelievably fond of him or that the man’s presence was calming. Most of the time. In the face of his own version of Bucky Barnes, Steve knew that he was more comfortable with the one he knew than the one from Tony’s world. The Look. Normally, Steve would have flashed Bucky a cheeky smile at seeing that particular expression on his friend’s face, or at least had the decency to flush just a little bit, but today, Steve just gave a little shrug, his eyes a depth of tension that had no release. That was why yes, he would try to sit, but he wasn’t sure how long he’d be able to stay down. Steve wanted to move, he wanted to hit something as hard as he could… But he couldn’t do that. This wasn’t the tower, and he wasn’t going to leave to go find a gym. ”I’ll be fine, Bucky.” The serum would see him through any hunger pains he suffered, he was sure.

When Bucky came back with the chairs, Steve let him be pushed into one, no arguing. And surprisingly, when Bucky told him to eat, Steve did. Not as much as he might have under other circumstances, but he took the thermos of soup and half of what was left of the pie as well as the water. He tucked away a sandwich for later, knowing that while he really didn’t understand what, exactly, was happening, all of the intricacies of the surgery Justin and Shuri were performing, he did have enough knowledge to know that such an operation would take quite a while. And Steve would be here when they opened the doors to leave the room. He would be waiting for Tony to wake up. He wasn’t leaving, and evidently Bucky wasn’t going to try to make him.

The words from the other Bucky, standing across the hall next to the door, had Steve’s head snapping up, blue eyes finding Barnes’. Steve didn’t exactly smile, a shudder even travelled down his spine, but he appreciated the sentiment. Giving the other man a nod, Steve spoke quietly, ”That’s good to know. From what I’ve been able to learn, Justin is a very competent doctor. I have faith in him, too.” Tony was in good hands. He’d be okay.

He had to be.

“That’s not going away anytime soon.”
