Bucky dropped to his knees, arms curling around his stomach. That was going to hurt for a while. He coughed, the wind got knocked out of him.. Steve had one hell of a throw when he was pissed. He struggled up and dodged out of the way of a fist.
“Uh, hey Stevie! You look really pissed. Can’t we you know talk this out?” Bucky said moving out of the way of fists. Steve let out a growl and grabbed his shield from off the ground. He threw the shield again and Bucky caught it and kept a hold on it. “I guess that’s a no.”
“Pops! Please stop! Don’t hurt Bucky!” Peter yelled from behind Natasha. Nothing would harm him behind Nat. No one had the nerve. Steve’s head swiveled toward Peter.
“Peter, he’s way too old for you! Why can’t you date someone your own age?” Steve yelled. At that moment Tony decided to stroll in with his gauntlets on.
“Are you going to gang up on me with Steve?” Bucky said from behind the shield. Tony rolled his eyes.
“My love, apple of my eye. You got a good hit in, now let’s go talk some, hm? How does that sound.” Steve glared at Tony. Tony held his hands up. “Well, I certainly tried.” Tony walked past Steve and straight to Bucky. Clint was struggling to not laugh at the entire situation. Tony raised his hand and gently put in on Bucky’s shoulder. He squeezed and stared at the brunette. Leaning in, close to his ear he whispered, “Break my sons heart and I will make sure to make your life hell on earth. But, I know you won’t so… Good luck with Steve!” Yelling the last part out. “Come on Peter let’s leave them to talk.” Tony looked at Clint and Natasha expectantly. Clint walked to a vent and climbed up into it. Natasha put her hands on Peter’s shoulder leading him out.
“Wait! I need to stay here! Pops, don’t hurt him!” Peter was struggling against the Widow and Tony was right behind her. Tony turned once and looked at Steve.
“Don’t ruin my tower. Have at it boys.” With that they were gone. Steve was clenching and unclenching his fists.
“Don’t. How could you go after my kid!? He’s seventeen! How long have you been having sex with my child?!” Steve yelled. Bucky flinched. He let out a sigh and threw the shield back at Steve. The blonde caught it and glared at the brunette.
“I love him Stevie… Have you seen his smile? Obviously, he’s been the one to help me through the brainwashing and making me feel sane. When I’m having the bad days, he’s there to make stupid jokes and just listen or sit with me and just hum songs, or talk about his science. We’ve been together for six months. We didn’t have…” A cough. “Until a couple weeks ago…” Bucky looks at Steve. “I won’t say I’m sorry I’m with him. Or break up with him. Because that’s up to him. If he’s happy with me, I will stay with him for as long as he wants me.” Bucky said the last part in a low whisper. But, he knew Steve would hear it. Bucky stared at the ground.
“I’m not going to get tired of you! And I never will, no matter what you think James.” Peter was standing in the door way. Bucky looked up and heat rushed to his face. Peter ran up and wrapped his arms around his Super Soldier. “Pops… I know you don’t approve… But, please reconsider.” Steve stared from Peter his only son. To Bucky his best friend since way back when. Peter was growing up and that scared Steve. Steve knew deep down that Bucky would never do anything to hurt Peter. He walked up, and Peter stood in front of Bucky. Steve grabbed his son in a bone crushing hug. Peter wrapped his arms around his father.
“I love you Peter. I guess it’s just hard to see you grown up…” Steve stared at Bucky and let out a sigh. He let go of Peter and walked to Bucky. Steve wrapped his arms around him and put his for head on Bucky’s. Bucky wrapped his arms around Steve and they looked at each other. “I guess, I should be happy that it’s you and not someone evil.” Steve let out a small smile. He let go of Bucky and patted him on the back. Tony popped his head in.
“So, it looks like Bucky is going to be my son-in-law? Oh, I can’t wait to tell Pepper.” Bucky and Peter blushed.
“Stark!” Tony looked to Bucky and smirked.
“Please, call me father!” Bucky growled and Steve couldn’t help but chuckle. Tony waltz in and before Bucky could cover himself he landed a solid kick straight to the groin. “That’s for sexing up my son.” Bucky had crumpled to the floor holding his jewels, Peter got down and glared at his dad. “What? Steve gets to throw a shield at him and I can’t kick him in the nads? What is this world coming to?” Steve was doubled over laughing. Peter helped Bucky up and he let out a groan.
“Now then, let’s go make dinner and have a talk.” Tony said linking arms with Steve and walked toward the elevators. Bucky leaning heavily on Peter, following them. They rode up the elevator in silence. The door opened to all the avengers sitting around the T.V. Tony smirked and led Steve out.
“What is everyone watching?” Peter set Bucky down on the couch and went to get some ice.
“We are watching Barnes get his dick kicked.” Clint snickered behind his hand.
“Jarvis, play back.” Tony said and the screen showed Tony talking and in a swift movement land a kick to Bucky’s groin. Thor let out a rumbling laugh. Bruce chuckled quietly to himself. Natasha patted Tony on the back and looked as if she was close to bursting. Clint fell to the floor and Sam winced in sympathy.
“Look at that form. The sheer beauty of it!” Tony was extremely proud of himself. Nat nodded, after all she was the one who showed him how to do it. “I had to try it out on someone other than Nat. This was the obvious choice!” Bucky groaned again and Peter let out a sigh and gave Bucky the ice. He quickly stuffed it down his pants and let out a content sigh. Steve came up behind Tony and wrapped his arms around his waist. Peter turned around and glared at them, making a small pout.
“No more hurting Bucky! That means any of you!” Tony looked innocent, Steve just let out a sigh. This was his family and he wouldn’t have it any other way. Looking around the room, he saw Clint and Thor laughing as the video replayed. Sam was patting Bucky on the shoulder. Natasha was sitting with Bruce both had small smiles on their faces. When Steve looked at Peter he was looking at Bucky and the same vice versa, he saw the love in their eyes and he recognized that look. It was the same look he always gave Tony. He planted a small kiss on Tony’s cheek and smiled. Yeah, this was his family.
