    Summary

    Steve is struck by the posture.

    Bucky sprawled on the couch, each and every time, curling into its soft embrace like a lazy cat, snuggling up to Steve whenever he could, rarely letting his feet even touch the ground. James’s spine is ramrod straight, a good few inches away from the back of the couch, and there’s tension thrumming in every line of his body, the sight so familiar that Steve would never have taken notice of it if not for Bucky.

    It almost sends him to his knees, this concrete reality.

    James looks up.

    The eyes are the same, but the face they’re set in is older, harder, deep slashes carved into its handsome lines. Bucky looked like a boy who’d grow into a man with laugh lines, but when James’s brow furrows, it’s with a frown that threatens at every moment to morph into a scowl. He doesn’t look older than thirty, he never will, but he wears every one of his hundred years in his too-old eyes.

    “James,” Steve chokes out.

    It’s a greeting, but it’s also grief.

    “Steve,” James returns evenly. “Good morning.”

    Steve is condemned to be haunted by men who are still alive.
