Bucky was still reeling from finally getting to hear her name. While the omega explored his apartment, he sank down onto his couch, his head buzzing with thoughts of her and him and his past life with HYDRA and how her name felt so, incredibly, impossibly right.
Amoretta.
It didn鈥檛 sound familiar to him, and he was pretty certain that he had never known it before. That made him feel a little bit better about everything, a little less guilty for almost completely forgetting about his omega. He hated how much less he remembered about her than she remembered about him, even if it wasn鈥檛 his fault that HYDRA scrambled his brain up so much all the time. No matter how many times he told himself that it was okay, that he was already doing his best, he couldn鈥檛 help but feel like he was a bad alpha.
But when she looked up at him with that smile and those eyes, so trusting and happy and comfortable...well, a lot of those negative thoughts flew out the window again.
鈥淪o you live here? Like, for real? Like, all the time?鈥 She asked as she inspected his tv.
鈥淪ure do.鈥 He chuckled, sitting on the couch to watch her. 鈥淲haddya think?鈥
She spun around in a little circle, taking it all. 鈥淚t鈥檚...perfect.鈥
Bucky smiled. 鈥淚鈥檒l have to find some more blankets for you.鈥
Amoretta paused, looking at him curiously. 鈥淔or what? I don鈥檛 think I could ever be cold with you around. You鈥檙e like a furnace.鈥
鈥淲ell...so you can...you know.鈥 He was feeling stupid again. She wasn鈥檛 even thinking of nesting with him around, was she?
鈥淪o I can what?鈥 She seemed puzzled.
鈥淵ou know...make a nest鈥︹ he mumbled. 鈥淚sn鈥檛 that what omegas are s鈥檖osed to do? I鈥檝e heard Bruce makes them鈥︹
Realization dawned on her and her jaw dropped a little. 鈥淥h. I haven鈥檛 gotten to nest in...um...ever?鈥 She laughed. 鈥淗YDRA never let me.鈥
鈥...oh.鈥 Bucky cleared his throat.
鈥淏ut now that I鈥檓 thinking about it, that might be nice.鈥 She glanced around the room, already looking for a good spot. 鈥淢aybe there? Ooh, no, I don鈥檛 want it out in the open, do I? Or maybe I do鈥︹
鈥淗ey, FRIDAY?鈥 Bucky asked.
鈥淵es, Seargent Barnes?鈥 The robot replied, her voice sounding from somewhere in the ceiling.
Amoretta jumped. 鈥淐an she see us right now?鈥
鈥淚 monitor everything in this tower,鈥 Friday said. 鈥淭ony has designed me to run all necessary systems.鈥
鈥淵eah, yeah. Tell someone we need more bedding. Blankets. Lots of 鈥榚m.鈥
鈥淚 will let Miss Potts know right away, Seargent.鈥
鈥淭hanks, FRIDAY.鈥 He said, kicking his shoes off to rest his heels on the coffee table.
鈥淥f course, Seargent Barnes.鈥
鈥淪o...you鈥檙e a Seargent?鈥 Amoretta asked, making her way over to sit on the arm of the couch.
He stretched his arms back behind his head. 鈥淪eargent James Buchanan Barnes. World War II. I was with the 107th.鈥
鈥淚s that how you know Steve?鈥
He smiled, his head. 鈥淣ah. We were always friends. Grew up in Brooklyn together.鈥
She sat up a little straighter. 鈥淏rooklyn?鈥
鈥淏orn 鈥榥 raised, doll.鈥
鈥淚 wanna go!鈥 She bounced down onto the cushion next to him, both hands pressing into his thigh as she suddenly leaned up towards his face. 鈥淧lease?鈥
鈥淯h, sure.鈥 He was a bit taken aback by her sudden movement, but he wasn鈥檛 complaining about how close she was now. 鈥淢ind tellin鈥 me why, though?鈥
鈥淵ou mentioned it once.鈥 She rubbed her nose against his neck, sighing happily as she scent of cloves filled her senses.
鈥...I did?鈥
鈥淢hm.鈥 Amoretta snuggled up against his side, fitting next to him perfectly. 鈥淚 don鈥檛 remember everything from back then, but I remember that.鈥
鈥淲hat鈥檇 I say?鈥 He brought on of his arms down to drape around her shoulders, hugging her closer.
鈥淚 think I asked you what kind of life we鈥檇 have outside of HYDRA.鈥 She rested her cheek on his chest. 鈥淵ou told me we鈥檇 live in Brooklyn, in our own house. And鈥︹ she trailed off, blushing slightly.
鈥淎nd what?鈥 He asked, curious.
鈥淵ou said we鈥檇 have lots of pups.鈥 She chewed her lip, looking away from him in embarrassment. 鈥淚t was probably just your rut talking, though, you know...i-if you don鈥檛 want that now, it makes sense. I mean, you鈥檝e got this whole life now, and鈥︹
She trailed off as she noticed that his chest was rumbling with a loud purr. When she finally brought her eyes back up to his face, she saw that he was watching her, features relaxed into a soft, thoughtful expression.
鈥淒o...you want pups?鈥 She asked, heart leaping hopefully.
鈥淎lways used to want a whole little family.鈥 He pulled her up to straddle his lap. 鈥淒idn鈥檛 think I鈥檇 get the chance to, but now鈥ey, I never sired any for HYDRA, right?鈥
鈥淣ot that I know of.鈥
鈥淕ood.鈥 He sounded relieved. 鈥淭hat鈥檇 be a fuckin鈥 nightmare.鈥
鈥淭hey made sure my heat suppressants kept me infertile.鈥 Amoretta said. 鈥淭hey didn鈥檛 have a program for breeding super soldiers ready yet.鈥
鈥淕ood.鈥 He growled. 鈥淣o pups of mine are ever gonna grow up in a place like that.鈥
She reached up, running her fingers through his hair. 鈥淵ou really want them now?鈥
鈥淐ourse.鈥 He pulled her forward, wrapping his arms around her waist and pressing his face against her scent gland. 鈥淢aybe not, like, now, now, but鈥ith you? I do.鈥
Amoretta鈥檚 eyes widened, a happy little keen leaving her throat. 鈥淚鈥檝e waited so long to hear you say that鈥︹
Bucky tugged her back so he could face her. 鈥淚鈥檓 gonna court you properly. Do it right.鈥
鈥淏ut you don鈥檛 need to鈥斺
鈥淚 don鈥檛 care.鈥 He interrupted. 鈥淚鈥檓 an old fashioned guy. I鈥檓 gonna court you.鈥
She grinned, a hand trailing down the side of his neck. 鈥淗ow old fashioned, exactly?鈥
He raised an eyebrow. 鈥淲hy?鈥
鈥淭oo old fashioned to have a little fun?鈥 Her hand slipped down to press against his chest.
His purr turned into a growl, his hands moving to hold her hips. 鈥淒oll, all you gotta do is ask鈥︹
Amoretta brought her lips to his ear. 鈥淲ill you fuck me, Bucky Barnes?鈥
It only took a moment before his lips were on hers. He was gentle, but he was hungry, devouring her in a kiss that left her breathless and would have made her knees weak had she been standing. With his hands slowly sliding down to her ass, Bucky was perfectly content to take his time; he wanted to feel her, inch by inch, until he had memorized every curve and dip of her body.
Her skin was so soft beneath his callouses. He nudged her sweater up a bit, his hands slipping underneath it to grab at her tits. She couldn鈥檛 help but let out a whine against his lips when he brushed a thumb over her nipple, her nails digging into his shoulders as she held him.
When he broke away from the kiss, he gave her lower lip a sharp bite. 鈥淏ed. Now.鈥
Amoretta practically launched herself towards his bedroom, scrambling onto the bed without a second thought. Bucky followed at a much slower pace, enjoying the view as she shed her clothing.
鈥淗ey, maybe I wanted to do that,鈥 he teased, crawling over her. His lips found her neck, his fangs scraping her skin.
鈥淚-I wanted to make it easier for you,鈥 she gasped, back arching as he gave her scent gland a gentle bite.
鈥淚 wanna take my time with you, sweetheart.鈥 His voice was husky and low, his breath hot against her throat. 鈥淚 wanna enjoy every second鈥︹
She sighed as he nipped and licked at her, her hands slipping under his shirt. Her fingers ran across his abs, feeling the way they flexed beneath her touch as he ground his hips into hers.
鈥淵ou鈥檙e overdressed,鈥 She said, tugging at his hem. 鈥淟et me see you.鈥
Bucky broke away from her neck and grabbed his shirt, shucking it off and tossing it behind him. 鈥淏etter?鈥
鈥淢uch,鈥 She hummed, taking in the sight of his naked torso.
鈥淕ood.鈥 He took hold of her hips, leaving a trail of kisses behind as he made his way down to her pussy. 鈥淕od, you smell fucking amazing鈥︹
Amoretta trilled happily. 鈥淪o do y鈥攐h my god鈥︹
His tongue was already lapping at her. She couldn鈥檛 remember anyone ever eating her out before, but Bucky seemed determined to make up for lost time. He acted like he was starving, sucking and nipping at her clit while he sank a finger inside of her.
Her hips bucked against him, his vibranium hand holding her down while his human hand played with her. She was already soaked, slick running down her thighs, and her scent was driving him wild.
鈥淔uck, I want you鈥︹ he growled, adding a second finger. 鈥淪o wet, so willing鈥nd you smell so delicious鈥.鈥 He inhaled slow and deep, savoring it. 鈥淚 think I鈥檝e missed this鈥︹
鈥淒-do you actually remember all the t-times you rutted with me?鈥 Her voice hitched with little gasps as he stroked her inner walls.
鈥淵es and no.鈥 He admitted, leaning his cheek on her thigh and looking up at her. 鈥淏ut I know this scent鈥︹
鈥淲hat scent鈥攁h!鈥 She bit her lip as he crooked his fingers a few times, warmth mounting in her belly. 鈥淜-keep going, I鈥檓鈥擣UCK!鈥
She shuddered as an orgasm rolled through her, electricity tingling in her limbs.
鈥淭he scent of my omega, all drippin鈥 wet, just for me.鈥 He pulled his fingers away, licking them clean. 鈥淚 wanna fuck you, doll鈥︹
鈥淧lease,鈥 she whimpered, scooting back up toward the pillows as Bucky stood.
Amoretta鈥檚 eyes were glued to his hands as they unbuckled his belt, his movements quick and determined. He was tired of waiting around. He wanted her now.
As he shoved his pants down off of his hips, she bit her lip again, rubbing her thighs together. She could remember how good he felt inside her, and as she thought about the way he always used to snap his hips into hers, she felt another trail of slick running down her legs.
At the sight of his cock, she was practically a waterfall.
Before he could get back to her, Amoretta was flipping over onto her hands and knees, presenting herself for him with her ass up in the air. She peeked back over her shoulder at him, watching as froze and then stiffened, a low, impossibly loud growl rumbling in his chest.
鈥淕ood girl,鈥 he praised her, his cock already rock hard as he crawled across the bed towards her.
Amoretta gave a little wiggle, trying to convince him to hurry up. When his hands grabbed her hips and jerked her back against him, she squealed in surprise, the sound melting into a moan as he rubbed his cock against her.
鈥淧lease,鈥 she whined. 鈥淧lease, please just fuck me, Alpha, I need it鈥︹
鈥淗ow bad?鈥 He leaned over her, nipping at her shoulder.
鈥淪-so bad, please, just鈥斺
She interrupted herself with another moan, her hands clutching at the sheets as Bucky finally gave her what she was craving so badly.
He pressed himself into her slowly at first, waiting to feel some resistance. She was so soft and warm that he almost came then and there, his teeth sinking into her shoulder as he forced his hips to still. Fuck, how could someone feel so good? Her pussy felt perfect around him, gently squeezing his cock as he pulled back out and then thrusted back in, already balls deep inside her. He could tell why he had liked her so much during his ruts, but he had no idea how he could have managed to fuck her for more than thirty seconds during one.
When he started moving again, Amoretta turned into putty. She was absolutely melting, angling her hips so that he could sink in deeper and deeper, slick running down her thighs.
鈥淵ou like my cock, baby?鈥 He asked, voice muffled by her neck as he dragged his lips over her skin. He wanted to be as close to her as possible, and he didn鈥檛 care if that meant both of them being a tangled mess of limbs and sweat. He just wanted her.
鈥淵-yes, Alpha,鈥 she gasped, slowly sliding down until her chest was squished against the bed. He felt even better than she remembered, his cock rubbing against every single perfect spot inside of her. He was stretching her out comfortably, her slick providing more than enough lube to ensure that his size could never hurt her.
Fuck, he was perfect. He was made for her. They were made for each other.
Bucky was pressed against her back, shielding her with his entire body. He didn鈥檛 want anyone else to see his omega. The sight of her there, beneath him, taking his cock so well was for him and him alone, and he was going to make sure it stayed that way.
鈥淲ant me to fill you up?鈥 He asked, licking her scent gland.
鈥淵-yes please,鈥 she moaned, leaning her head back for him.
鈥淲ant me to breed you, over 鈥榥 over, 鈥榯il you鈥檙e full of pups?鈥 He bit at her jaw.
鈥淵es!鈥 She cried, whines and trills all flooding from her throat in a symphony of needy sounds.
鈥淪ay my name,鈥 he panted, his knot already beginning to swell.
鈥淏-Bucky,鈥 she moaned as she felt it catch on her. Fuck, she had forgotten how good it felt to be stretched and feel it filling her.
He let go of her hips, his hand finding hers. 鈥淣o, my real name鈥︹
鈥淛-James,鈥 she gasped, intertwining their fingers together. 鈥淛ames鈥lease knot me...鈥
That was it.
Hearing her gasping and moaning his name sent him over the edge, and before he could stop himself, he was exploding inside of her. He snarled, biting her shoulder again as he held her down, his knot locking him in place as he pressed his hips forward.
Amoretta sighed happily at the feeling, relaxing as Bucky鈥檚 weight fell onto her. He was panting hard, trying to catch his breath.
鈥淔uck,鈥 he sighed, kissing the already-healing bite marks on her shoulder. 鈥淪orry 鈥榖out the bites.鈥
Amoretta grinned at him as he helped her turn onto her side. 鈥淚 like your bites.鈥
鈥淥h yeah?鈥 He pulled her up against his chest, settling in to wait for his knot to go down once more. 鈥淚鈥檒l remember that.鈥
鈥淪uper soldier, remember? Built to withstand you at your roughest.鈥 She snuggled back.
鈥淕uess I鈥檝e got something to thank HYDRA for, after all.鈥 He chuckled, drawing lazy circles on her hip. 鈥淵ou didn鈥檛 cum when I was inside you, did you?鈥
鈥淣o, but that鈥檚 fine.鈥 She shrugged. 鈥淚 did before.鈥
鈥淭hat鈥檚 not enough,鈥 he growled. 鈥淚f my knot wasn鈥檛 so swollen right now, I鈥檇 be fucking you until your legs shake.鈥
鈥淚s that a promise, Sergeant?鈥 She asked, a mischievous glint in her eye.
鈥淚t is.鈥
鈥淲ell, then鈥︹ she held his jaw in her hand, leaning up to whisper in his ear. 鈥淚 can鈥檛 wait for your knot to go down.鈥

Love the bucky fic so far but can you tell me how to pronounce the Omegas name please
Amoretta is pronounced like amo - retta! Or am - o - rett- ah. At least that鈥檚 how I say it in my head. It鈥檚 French! I also named her after Amorette鈥檚 Patisserie in Orlando because I really like their cakes lol

It鈥檚 Been a Long, Long Time | Ch 6
Summary: 聽When HYDRA had their prized asset, the Winter Soldier, they did something no one ever thought was possible: they gave super soldier serum to an omega. With the sole purpose of tending to him during his ruts, she spends decades living in HYDRA facilities, denied her humanity and her life. Now, years later, Bucky Barnes has his mind and his own life back...and the last thing he ever expects is to see a familiar omega again. Bucky/OC, a little angsty but mostly smutty/fluffy/romantic!
Part One | ... | Part Five | Part Six | Part Seven

Bucky refused to leave the omega鈥檚 side while she stayed in the lab. Bruce had to stop him from trying to crawl onto the bed with her, and after about the third time, he convinced the super soldier to just pull up a chair like a civilized person and hold her hand while she drifted off to sleep again. Now that she was with her alpha, she had settled down for another nap, more interested in resting than answering any more questions so long as Bucky stayed and kept an eye on her.聽
Steve had to admit, it was endearing. He had never seen his friend so absolutely enraptured like this. Whenever the omega, or Ten, as Bruce was still calling her, shifted in her sleep, Bucky鈥檚 eyes were snapping over to make sure that she was okay. Whenever she let out a little whimper, he was purring and stroking her hair. Whenever she seemed like she might wake up again, his attention was completely on her.
鈥淪o...sure you don鈥檛 remember her?鈥 Steve asked, pulling up a chair. He had left for a few hours to work out, and after a lack of updates from FRIDAY, he headed back down to check on everything. They were exactly as he had left them, which was a good sign. At least nothing was getting out of hand.聽
Yet.
Bucky shrugged, rubbing the back of the omega鈥檚 hand with his thumb. 鈥淚 dunno. It鈥檚...foggy.鈥
鈥淲ell, it seems to me like you鈥檝e either got a history together, or she鈥檚 mistaking you for someone else.鈥 Steve said. 鈥淨uite frankly, it鈥檚 hard to do the latter.鈥
鈥淚鈥檝e dreamt of her.鈥 Bucky said quietly.聽
鈥...what?鈥
鈥淚t鈥檚 not much, but...I鈥檝e seen her face.鈥 Bucky looked down at her. 鈥淚 think that no matter how many times HYDRA wiped my memory, she鈥檚 always been in there. Kinda like the one constant that was always around, the one thing I could always count on being in the base with me.鈥
鈥淲hy didn鈥檛 you ever tell me?鈥 Steve asked.
鈥淣ever knew if she was real or not.鈥 Bucky sighed. 鈥淚 thought...maybe she was just something my mind made up to fill some of the gaps. But she smells exactly like I remember.鈥
Steve sat back in his chair, his arms crossed over his chest as he watched his friend. Bucky wasn鈥檛 snarling anymore, most of his attention trained on the omega while she slept. Now that he was close to her, he had calmed down significantly, though he still wouldn鈥檛 let Steve within five feet of her bed.聽
鈥淛ust got off the phone with Tony,鈥 Bruce announced, walking in. 鈥淗e and Pepper will be back tonight. Pepper鈥檚 having some clothes and personal items delivered for our new omega friend here. They also asked about renovating a more permanent room for her, but I, uh...told them I wasn鈥檛 exactly sure what the situation would be.鈥
鈥淪he鈥檚 staying with me,鈥 Bucky said immediately.聽
鈥淣ow hang on, hang on,鈥 Steve leaned forward.聽
鈥淪teve,鈥 Bucky growled. 鈥淚 want her with me.鈥
鈥淏uck, you don鈥檛 even know her鈥斺
Bucky interrupted him with a loud snarl, the omega in question whining and squirming in her sleep at the sound of it.聽
He immediately shut up, brushing a thumb over her cheek and shushing her until she was sleeping soundly again. Fuck, he felt so stupid. What was wrong with him? She could have woken up, or been scared, or upset, all because he couldn鈥檛 keep his big mouth shut. She needed her rest, and he needed to stay quiet.聽
Steve almost couldn鈥檛 believe what he was seeing.聽
鈥淥h, Buck,鈥 he shook his head. 鈥淵ou鈥檙e in deep.鈥
Amoretta woke feeling well rested, and it wasn鈥檛 until she tried to stretch and felt the tug of her IV drip that she remembered where she was. Opening her eyes revealed the bright lights of the lab, and as she started to sit up, a few faces came into view.
鈥淲elcome back, Sleeping Beauty,鈥 Bruce said. 鈥淗ow are you feelin鈥?鈥
She licked her lips. 鈥淛uice box. Now.鈥
鈥淲ay ahead of you. Had this one waiting as soon as you started waking up.鈥 He tossed one to her and was pleased when her hand shot up to catch it. 鈥淩eflexes look good. Vitals are all reading normal. I鈥檒l have to run another test to see what鈥檚 going on with those suppressants, but I鈥檓 willing to bet you鈥檙e metabolizing them fairly quickly now. How are you feeling?鈥
She pulled the little straw off the back of the carton and jammed it into the top. 鈥淣auseous. Like usual.鈥
He raised an eyebrow. 鈥淪ide effect of the suppressants?鈥
鈥淎lways has been. Other than that...I feel great, actually.鈥
鈥淲ell, as soon as these wear off, we can figure out something nicer and more modern for you. If you want to use them, I mean.鈥 Bruce shrugged. 鈥淵our choice.鈥
She smiled. 鈥淐hoice. I like that.鈥
鈥淗ey, we鈥檙e all about independence here,鈥 Steve said happily. He was glad to see she was awake, even though Bucky wasn鈥檛.
The other alpha was still at her side, but, as of about half an hour ago, he was napping. Steve made a mental note to never let him forget the way he slept straight through the one moment he had been waiting for all day.聽
鈥淲hat time is it?鈥 She asked. 鈥淭here鈥檚 no windows in this damn place.鈥
鈥淛ust after dinner,鈥 Bruce chuckled. 鈥淵ou slept most of the day. Bucky hasn鈥檛 left your side.鈥
She looked over to her soldier, smiling warmly at the sight of him sleeping. He was even snoring softly. 鈥淚 haven鈥檛 gotten to see this in forty years.鈥
鈥淒id you two, uh鈥︹ Steve cleared his throat. 鈥淪pend a lot of time together?鈥
The omega laughed. 鈥淵ou always this awkward around girls?鈥
鈥淭hat鈥檚 not鈥斺
鈥淩elax, I鈥檓 just giving you a hard time.鈥 She sucked on her straw. 鈥淏ut...yeah, we did.鈥
鈥淪o...you were just kept for his ruts, or鈥︹ Steve was so awkward it was almost endearing. 鈥淚鈥檓 sorry, that came out wrong. I think.鈥
鈥淚t鈥檚 okay. I know my lot in life.鈥 She kept her eyes trained on Bucky as she spoke. 鈥淏ut if I鈥檓 going to answer more questions, I want to get out of this bed. And I want real clothes. Then I鈥檒l talk.鈥
And so, only several minutes later, Bruce was handing her a sweater and some shorts he had grabbed from a little stash of extra clothing, and Bucky was startled awake by Ten stepping past him. She was finally free from all the tubes and cords that had been sticking out of her during her little hospital stay, and she was all too eager now to explore the tower.
She stood on wobbly legs, almost falling onto him when she tried to take a step. Bucky was up in a flash, ready to catch her, and as she fell against his chest, he wrapped his arms around her. Despite just waking up, he felt fully alert, completely ready to tend to his omega鈥檚 every need.聽
His omega...he liked that train of thought.聽
鈥淲e can head up to the common area. It should still be quiet.鈥 Steve said, leading the way out.聽
Bucky kept an arm around his omega鈥檚 waist as they followed, Bruce bringing up the rear. He wanted to be touching her at all times, constantly in contact so that he couldn鈥檛 lose track of her. His instincts were roaring to life, demanding that he do everything in his power to make sure that she was safe and in his line of sight. The elevator ride was tense and full of possessive growling, Bucky constantly shoving Ten behind him to keep her in the corner and as far away from Steve as possible, and everyone breathed a sigh of relief when the doors slid open and they could step out of the cramped space again.聽
The common area was empty, thankfully, FRIDAY informing them that the other Avengers were all either working out or in their private quarters.聽
鈥淕ood,鈥 Steve said, heading towards the couches. 鈥淣o interruptions. Got it, FRIDAY?鈥
鈥淯nderstood, Captain Rogers.鈥
鈥淐鈥檓ere,鈥 Bucky mumbled, pulling his omega down to sit on one of the couches with him. Part of him was feeling a little sheepish and self conscious of his behavior...but the rest of him didn鈥檛 give a shit. The others could stare and shake their heads all they wanted, but he鈥檇 be damned if he let Ten slip through his fingers again.聽
Or whatever her name was.聽
Steve and Bruce sat across from them, making sure that they left as much space as possible between themselves and the new omega. Neither of them had ever seen Bucky behaving quite like this--he was on guard, hyper aware of everything around him. He made sure that she was pressed up against his side, an arm draped possessively over the back of the couch so that it was unmistakable that she was with him.
Christ, what had gotten into him? He couldn鈥檛 remember ever acting this way about an omega before.聽
鈥淪o鈥︹ Steve cleared his throat, sitting with his elbows resting on his knees.
Bucky didn鈥檛 really like the way his posture made him lean forward towards his omega, but he could deal with it for now. 鈥淪o.鈥
鈥淲hat do you wanna know?鈥 Ten asked, plucking at Bucky鈥檚 shirt. She seemed to be even clingier with him than he was with her, perfectly happy to be hanging off him or tucked up against his side. 鈥淵ou met my demands. I guess I鈥檓 an open book now.鈥
鈥淚 don鈥檛 want to overstep my bounds,鈥 Steve said. 鈥淲e just need to know as much as you鈥檙e willing to share.鈥
鈥淭hen ask a question.鈥
鈥...Alright.鈥 he cleared his throat again. 鈥淵ou said HYDRA used you to help with Bucky鈥檚 ruts?鈥
Ten nodded, her expression remaining even and cool.聽
鈥淐ould you tell us more about that?鈥 Steve glanced at Bucky. 鈥淲ere there ever any other omegas, or anyone we should know about?鈥
鈥淭here were omegas before me.鈥 she answered. 鈥淲hen I first got to the compound, there were a lot of us. They kept us all in big cells, so everyone talked. People said things about how HYDRA was grabbing omegas off the street for their super soldiers, and how the one at our base was the biggest and scariest.鈥
Bruce raised an eyebrow at her tone. He wasn鈥檛 exactly sure what he expected her to sound like while she regaled them with her life story, but he definitely thought there would be a tad bit more apprehension in her voice. She seemed proud of herself, and more matter-of-fact than a lot of omegas would be while talking about their alpha鈥檚 previous partners. Or...whatever you called prisoners whose only purpose was to help during ruts.
鈥淎nd I bet he was,鈥 she sighed, leaning her cheek on Bucky鈥檚 chest and looking up at him adoringly.聽
鈥淲ell, I don鈥檛 know about that鈥︹ Bucky said, an almost shy smile on his lips. And...was he actually blushing?
Steve was going to lose his mind.聽
鈥淵ou said the other omegas couldn鈥檛 handle it? That鈥檚 why you were given the serum?鈥 he prompted, trying to keep them on track before he drowned in the sticky sweetness of her happy pheromones.聽
鈥淩ight.鈥 she turned her attention back to Steve and Bucky let out a quiet huff. 鈥淗YDRA didn鈥檛 really like to take care of us. And the soldier--I mean, Bucky--would wear them out. So...HYDRA would just kind of let them go. Or put them down, maybe. I never saw it.鈥
Bucky鈥檚 expression dropped. His blush was gone, and he almost looked like he was going to be sick as he listened to her talk.
鈥淏ut it wasn鈥檛 his fault,鈥 she said quickly, glancing between him and Steve. 鈥淚 don鈥檛 think it was ever on purpose, you were just...demanding.鈥
He gave a groan, leaning his head back against the couch. 鈥淵ou don鈥檛 have to sugarcoat it, doll. I鈥檇 rather know what I did, at this point.鈥
She offered a small shrug. 鈥淚 don鈥檛 really remember it being that bad, but I don鈥檛 think I ever met you before they gave me the serum.鈥
鈥淭hat鈥檚 something, at least.鈥 he mumbled, dragging a hand down his face.聽
鈥淲hy you?鈥 Steve asked. 鈥淒id you have any prior military experience, any ties to something the others didn鈥檛?鈥
鈥淣o.鈥 she laughed. 鈥淚 never even got in fights before HYDRA.鈥
鈥淭hen why鈥檇 they use such an important resource on you, specifically? Not trying to take a dig at you, it鈥檚 just...well, omegas don鈥檛 usually鈥︹
鈥淚 know,鈥 she said. 鈥淥megas aren鈥檛 supposed to be tough, right? That鈥檚 why they only ever let alphas become super soldiers.鈥
鈥淭hat鈥檚 not what I鈥︹ Steve trailed off and then sighed. 鈥淪orry.鈥
鈥淚 told you, they gave me the serum so that I would be strong enough to hold my own. It also ensured I would always be around, no matter how many years passed.鈥 Her fingers found Bucky鈥檚 free hand and she took it, absentmindedly playing with the smooth vibranium knuckles. 鈥淗aving me as a constant meant they could stop spending so much time and effort on always having a new omega around for him. Plus鈥ell, I wasn鈥檛 really there, but I heard something about it once鈥︹
鈥淲hat?鈥 Bucky asked.聽
鈥淭hey let you choose who was going to become your omega.鈥 She said, looking up at him. 鈥淭hey gave you a bunch of scents, and you chose mine. I guess it was the only reason they didn鈥檛, uh...humanely euthanize me.鈥
His eyes were wide. The thought of HYDRA killing his omega brought a low growl to his throat, his chest rumbling with the vibrations of it. 鈥淣o.鈥
鈥淲ell, clearly they didn鈥檛!鈥 She said brightly. 鈥淢y file said I was a kicker.鈥
鈥淪o they gave you, an already aggressive omega, the serum, but never gave you any trigger words or fished around in your brain?鈥 Bruce shook his head. 鈥淪urprisingly sloppy, considering who they are.鈥
鈥淚t鈥檚 not like they ever sent me out into the world. I stayed in my cell all day, unless I was needed for a rut. Then I went and stayed in a different cell.鈥 She sighed. 鈥淎nd if they ever needed to, they could just use the alpha to grab me.鈥
Bucky clearly didn鈥檛 like the thought of that. He made a frustrated sound, leaning his head back again. 鈥淕reat.鈥
鈥淚t was never bad.鈥 She let go of his hand, moving her fingers to cup his jaw. 鈥淵ou never hurt me. You wouldn鈥檛. Sometimes, when I acted up, they would make you go retrieve me, because they knew you were the only one who could do it. If they didn鈥檛 send you, they would just knock me out.鈥
鈥淪o...that was it?鈥 Steve asked. 鈥淩uts, serum, cryo?鈥
鈥淔or thirty years!鈥 She chirped. 鈥淭he last time they froze me, they were freezing him, too. They always tried to keep us in cryo at the same time so that I could be thawed out and ready when he needed me. But...I guess they just...left me there?鈥 She frowned.聽
鈥淪ee, that鈥檚 what I鈥檝e been trying to figure out.鈥 Steve said. 鈥淚 didn鈥檛 see any signs of a struggle at that base. I鈥檇 say they left in an orderly fashion, but the fact that they didn鈥檛 take you along makes me think they were in more of a hurry than they made it seem.鈥
鈥淣atasha might have a better idea,鈥 Bruce suggested. 鈥淲e can talk to her, try to figure out鈥斺
鈥淔RIDAY, open the damn door or so help me God I will rewrite your entire personality.鈥 A voice interrupted from the other side of the door.聽
鈥淚鈥檓 sorry, Tony, but Captain Rogers asked me not to.鈥 The AI said.聽
鈥淲ell, is it an emergency?鈥 The man scoffed.
鈥淣o emergency measures have been executed. No security breaches have been identified.鈥
鈥淭hen I鈥檓 sorry, but Captain Rogers does not outrank me when it comes to my own robots. Open the door, beautiful.鈥
She seemed to sigh. 鈥淰ery well, Mr. Stark.鈥
Ten perked up, leaning forward slightly. She was watching the door curiously, tilting her head a little when she heard it slide open. Bucky rolled his eyes, grumbling to himself quietly and pulling her up against his side as another alpha strode in.聽
鈥淩eally? Having a party without me?鈥 the man asked, a smooth, casual air about him as he walked in and looked at everyone on the couches. When his eyes landed on the omega cuddled up next to Bucky, he stopped. 鈥淎h, is this our new guest?鈥
鈥淕o away, Stark.鈥 Bucky growled. He didn鈥檛 like how long the other man鈥檚 gaze was lingering on his omega, not when there weren鈥檛 any scars on her neck to show who she belonged to.
鈥淎lways such a charmer, Barnes.鈥 Tony said, flopping down next to Steve. 鈥淟ovely to see you, too. Care to introduce me to your friend? 鈥.No, you鈥檇 rather just snarl and forget your words? I knew you were old, but I didn鈥檛 realize you were actually a caveman.鈥
鈥淭ony,鈥 Bruce groaned. 鈥淒on鈥檛 aggravate him. Please.鈥
鈥淲hy not?鈥 Tony leaned back against the cushions, completely at ease and totally happy to be pressing every one of Bucky鈥檚 buttons.聽
鈥淎re you Tony Stark?鈥 Ten asked, wiggling out of Bucky鈥檚 grip to sit on the edge of their couch.聽
Bucky caught her around the waist before she could get very far, though, and dragged her onto his lap. He loomed over her, sneering dangerously at Tony as the other alpha flashed a smile.聽
鈥淏ingo.鈥 he said.聽
鈥淚 never thought I鈥檇 meet a Stark,鈥 she admitted. 鈥淚 always heard about Stark Industries, but I lived too far away from any big cities to ever get to see any of his exhibitions.鈥
鈥淎h. You鈥檙e from my father鈥檚 time. Of course.鈥 Tony shot a pointed glare in Bucky鈥檚 direction. 鈥淪eems like Bruce left out a few teensy weensy important details on the phone today.鈥
鈥淲ell, it鈥檚 been, uh...an ongoing learning experience.鈥 Bruce said sheepishly.聽
鈥淟ots of developments, huh?鈥 Tony raised an eyebrow.聽
鈥淵ou could say that.鈥 Steve said under his breath. 鈥淲e came up here so Ten could be more comfortable while we talk.鈥
鈥淥h yeah? What鈥檙e we talkin鈥 about?鈥 Tony asked.聽
鈥淭hey were asking about my time with HYDRA,鈥 she answered, cutting in before anyone else could. 鈥淎nd with...Bucky.鈥
Saying his name felt odd. Her tongue wasn鈥檛 used to it, and her mind wanted to call him alpha, or Winter Soldier. Bucky just seemed so鈥asual, such a strange thing to call a deadly super soldier. When she heard herself, though, she decided that she definitely didn鈥檛 hate it.聽
Bucky鈥檚 heart gave a little leap at the sound of his name falling from her lips. He wanted her to say it over and over again, in whispers and in screams, for nobody else鈥檚 ears but his.聽
鈥...Buck?鈥 Steve asked, pulling him away from his thoughts. 鈥淵ou, uh, kinda zoned out there.鈥
It wasn鈥檛 until Bucky looked at Steve that he realized his eyes had been trained on the omega in his lap. 鈥淵eah?鈥
鈥...Is this seriously how you鈥檝e spent the past day and a half?鈥 Tony asked. 鈥淪teve, I鈥檓 sorry, and I鈥檓 sure you鈥檙e just trying to be as helpful as you can be, like always, but I think you should let these two get a room.鈥
Steve looked at him incredulously. 鈥淭ony, really? I鈥檓 trying to get to the bottom of why exactly HYDRA would abandon the omega they pumped full of super soldier serum. They can get a room later鈥斺
鈥淵eah, uh, wonder boy? I don鈥檛 think your pal is gonna last much longer before he tries to rip our heads off.鈥 Tony nodded towards a very disgruntled Bucky. 鈥淵ou can resume your interrogation tomorrow, Cap.鈥
Steve looked to Bruce for help, but he only offered a small shrug and stood, heading towards the door. 鈥淗e鈥檚 right, Steve. They deserve some alone time.鈥
鈥淏ut鈥攈ey!鈥 Steve protested as Bucky picked his omega up, striding past the two alphas sitting on the opposite couch.聽
鈥淭hanks for everything, Steve.鈥 Bucky said over his shoulder.聽
Ten squirmed, peeking around Bucky鈥檚 arm as she was carried away. 鈥淏ye, Mr. Stark!鈥
鈥淒on鈥檛 look at him,鈥 Bucky growled as they walked out the door.聽
鈥淒id his father really make hoverboards? I heard once that Howard was promising hoverboards鈥斺
鈥淣o.鈥 He said flatly.聽
鈥...oh.鈥 She huffed, slumping against him. 鈥淲here are we going?鈥
鈥淢y apartment.鈥 Bucky stepped into the elevator, his grip still tight around her.聽
The omega perked up. 鈥淵ou have a whole apartment?鈥
He puffed his chest out a little. 鈥淐ourse I do. Gotta have a nice place for you, don鈥檛 I?鈥
鈥淪o I can stay?鈥 Her eyes were bright and happy. 鈥淚 can stay there, with you, all the time? Not just when you rut?鈥
He felt a sad little pang in his heart. When he spoke again, his voice was low and soft. 鈥淥f course, sweetheart.鈥
Then, his eyes widened as he realized what he was saying. 鈥淚 mean, uh...i-if you want to, that is. I know it鈥檚 fast and all, and maybe...would you rather have your own room? Or I can stay on the couch鈥斺
鈥淏ucky,鈥 she cut him off with a laugh, a soft hand cupping his jaw. 鈥淵ou鈥檝e been my alpha for seventy years. I鈥檇 say we鈥檙e actually moving pretty slow.鈥
His expression relaxed again, lips stretching into a small smile. 鈥淩ight. Yeah. You鈥檙e right.鈥
They spent the rest of the elevator ride in comfortable silence, Bucky rubbing his scent glands all over her hair. He wanted to make sure that the next time they encountered anyone else, she smelled exactly like him.
Like her alpha.
When the elevator came to a gentle stop at Bucky鈥檚 floor, the doors opened, and he stepped out in front of his apartment door. It opened for him, having already scanned his biometrics, revealing a small, but cozy, living room.聽
He set his omega down on her feet, watching anxiously as she stepped into his quarters. Did she like it? Fuck, was it too small? It was too small. She probably hated it. Fuck, fuck, fuck...he had to salvage this somehow.聽
鈥淲ell, uh鈥︹ shit, he sounded too nervous. He wanted her to think he was a strong, capable alpha.聽
He cleared his throat for another start. 鈥淲elcome home, Omega.鈥澛
Wait. That wasn鈥檛 right. Should he be calling her that? No, probably not, it sounded too possessive, too uncaring. He wished he just knew her fucking name, or something.聽
鈥淚 mean鈥en?鈥
Shit, he sounded so stupid. He wanted to impress her, not...do whatever this was.
She just laughed, though, turning and looking at him with those eyes that sparkled like starlight. 鈥淎moretta. My name is Amoretta.鈥

It鈥檚 Been a Long, Long Time | Ch 5
Summary:聽 When HYDRA had their prized asset, the Winter Soldier, they did something no one ever thought was possible: they gave super soldier serum to an omega. With the sole purpose of tending to him during his ruts, she spends decades living in HYDRA facilities, denied her humanity and her life. Now, years later, Bucky Barnes has his mind and his own life back...and the last thing he ever expects is to see a familiar omega again. Bucky/OC, a little angsty but mostly smutty/fluffy/romantic!
Part One | ... | Part 5 | Part 6

鈥淒r. Banner, the omega patient is awake.鈥
鈥淭hanks, FRIDAY,鈥 Bruce called as he rushed down to the lab. 鈥淟et Rogers and Barnes know, will you?鈥
鈥淵es, Dr. Banner.鈥
He hurried out of his apartment, scurrying into the elevator and tapping his foot impatiently. He hadn鈥檛 gotten any alerts overnight, which meant that the omega, or Ten, or whoever she was, hadn鈥檛 had any medical emergencies, and that was a very, very good sign. The last thing he wanted was to suddenly have a touch-and-go situation on his hands. Even though Tony always ensured the labs got the most up to date equipment and it was often way more sophisticated than what normal hospitals had, they were rarely ever dealing with normal people, and an omega super soldier who had just come out of a forty year cryo sleep was bound to have some issues.聽
It seemed that she was doing relatively okay, though, and that made Bruce happy.聽
鈥淐aptain Rogers and Sergeant Barnes would like me to inform you that they鈥檒l meet you at the medical lab, Dr. Banner.鈥 FRIDAY鈥檚 voice sounded over the intercom.聽
鈥淭hanks, FRIDAY.鈥 Bruce said.聽
As soon as the elevator reached his floor, he was practically running down the hall. Steve and Bucky were already waiting outside the door, chests heaving slightly, suggesting that they had decided to forego the elevator and simply sprint down the emergency stairs instead.聽
Alphas. Bruce thought to himself.聽
鈥淕lad to see you got here so quickly.鈥 he said, almost sarcastically.聽
鈥淛ust eager, Banner,鈥 Steve said with a nod. 鈥淔RIDAY said she was awake.鈥
鈥淎pparently.鈥 Bruce stepped towards the door and the two alphas moved to follow him.聽
Well, that wouldn鈥檛 do at all, would it? Ten didn鈥檛 need to be overwhelmed by super soldiers only minutes after waking up.聽
鈥淗ang on, hold your horses,鈥 Bruce said, turning to face them. 鈥淲e should take it slow. She鈥檚 in an unfamiliar place, in an unfamiliar time. I鈥檓 sure you can both appreciate how overwhelming that can be.鈥
They glanced at each other sheepishly.聽
鈥淟et me go talk to her first. I鈥檒l be back in a few minutes.鈥澛
Bucky鈥檚 chest began rumbling with a low growl, but after a sharp elbow from Steve, he gave a reluctant nod. Bruce eyed him warily, but turned and disappeared through the sliding glass doors anyway.聽
Alphas.
鈥淭he omega鈥檚 vitals are all normal, Dr. Banner.鈥 One of his assistants, a beta woman, said as she strode past him.聽
He grabbed his lab coat off its hook, shrugging it on. 鈥淚s she talking?鈥
鈥淎 bit.鈥 The assistant smiled mischievously. 鈥淪he鈥檚 got a list of demands.鈥
鈥淚鈥攚hat?鈥 Bruce asked.
鈥淕o see for yourself.鈥澛
He gave her a bewildered look before heading back towards Ten鈥檚 bed. She was sitting there, the IV still stuck in the back of her hand while she sucked down a little juice box.聽
鈥淗YDRA doesn鈥檛 give us these, you know.鈥 She said when she saw him. Her voice was still tired, but she was significantly more awake than the last time he had seen her.聽
Bruce stood at the foot of her bed, tucking his hands in his pockets. 鈥淲ell, good thing we aren鈥檛 HYDRA. I鈥檝e got a whole crate full of those for you.鈥
She raised an eyebrow weakly. 鈥淛ust for me?鈥
鈥淲ell, right now they are.鈥澛
She seemed to deem that an acceptable answer and returned her lips to the little plastic straw. 鈥淚 want more. And I want real food.鈥
Bruce chuckled. 鈥淎lright, I can arrange for that, as long as your body can handle it.鈥
鈥淚 want a real bed, too.鈥
鈥淥ne step at a time, Ten.鈥
She huffed.聽
鈥淚 was hoping we could talk more today.鈥 Bruce said. 鈥淲ould that be alright?鈥
The omega nodded after a moment of thought, and Bruce continued.聽
鈥淒o you remember where we are?鈥
鈥淣ew York.鈥 She answered. 鈥淏ut not Brooklyn.鈥澛
鈥淩ight. Manhattan. We鈥檙e in Stark Tower.鈥
鈥淗oward Stark?鈥 She asked.聽
鈥淗is son, actually. Tony Stark is head of the company now.鈥 Bruce said. 鈥淒o you remember who I am?鈥
鈥淵ou鈥檙e Dr. Banner.鈥 She answered, giving the air a sniff. 鈥淵ou鈥檙e an omega.鈥
鈥淭hat I am. Do you remember the alphas who rescued you?鈥
She perked up slightly. 鈥淎lpha?鈥
鈥淐aptain Rogers and Agent Romanoff found you and brought you back here. I鈥檝e been keeping an eye on you since then.鈥澛
鈥淗ow long has it been?鈥 She grimaced slightly.聽
鈥淛ust a day. You slept through the night.鈥 He glanced at a nearby screen. 鈥淪eems like you got some much needed rest, too. You鈥檙e recovering even quicker than I expected.鈥
鈥淲hy do I feel so awful?鈥 She tried to sit up more and grunted with the effort.聽
鈥淗ey, careful.鈥 Bruce warned. 鈥淵ou just came out of a forty year freeze. You need some time to warm back up.鈥
鈥淚鈥檝e been in cryo plenty of times,鈥 she grumbled. 鈥淚t鈥檚 never felt this bad.鈥
鈥淎re you aware that you鈥檝e been on heat suppressants?鈥
鈥淥f course.鈥 She scoffed. 鈥淭hey wouldn鈥檛 let me have normal heats. Or heats at all.鈥
鈥淲ell, the dose was so high before you went under that now your body is trying its best to filter them all out. I have a suspicion that you won鈥檛 be feeling too great until your lymphatic system is squeaky clean again.鈥 Bruce did his best to give her a reassuring smile. 鈥淪houldn鈥檛 be too long, considering your condition.鈥
鈥...condition?鈥
鈥淪uper soldier.鈥
鈥淥h. Right.鈥 She sighed. 鈥淭hat.鈥
This was going well. She was more talkative than Bruce thought she would be. Maybe she would do alright with Steve and Bucky coming in, after all.
鈥淗ey, Ten,鈥 he spoke up. 鈥淐aptain Steve Rogers, one of the alphas that found you?鈥
鈥淲hat about him?鈥 She asked.
鈥淗e鈥檚 actually waiting outside, along with Sergeant James Barnes. They were hoping they might be able to come in and say hello.鈥 Bruce said, a hopeful lilt to his voice. 鈥淭hey鈥檙e both alphas, so I thought it would be best if you made that call. Don鈥檛 want to overwhelm you.鈥
She narrowed her eyes. The alpha from the day before was fine, but he wasn鈥檛 hers. 鈥...I suppose.鈥
Bruce started at the cold tone in her voice. She clearly wasn鈥檛 happy with the concept, but she wasn鈥檛 resisting it.聽
鈥淚f it鈥檚 too much, they鈥檒l leave. You just have to say the word.鈥 He said, trying to sound reassuring. 鈥淭hey were just hoping to talk with you so we can get a better idea of what you鈥檝e been through.鈥
The omega鈥檚 sour expression lightened a bit. They were really trying to be helpful, weren鈥檛 they? It wouldn鈥檛 do her any good to sit there and snap and snarl and mope all because an alpha she once thought was interested in her wasn鈥檛 around. In fact, if what Banner said was true, and it really had been forty years since she was last awake, then...well, there was a good chance her alpha wasn鈥檛 even around anymore.聽
Forty years was a long time, and with the kind of dangerous situations he was always in, any number of things could have happened to him while she was out. The thought made her heart hurt, the color draining from her cheeks. No, no, she couldn鈥檛 think about that now. She needed to focus on what was right in front of her, focus on getting better and figuring out what to do next.聽
With a shuddering inhale, she forced a smile onto her face and looked at Bruce. 鈥淚t鈥檚 okay. I want to see them.鈥
He gave her a look of uncertainty, but nodded anyway. 鈥淚鈥檒l go grab them right now, then.鈥
She watched him go, her stomach twisting into knots. At least she had her juice boxes to get her through all of this,聽
Out in the hall, Bucky was pacing.聽
鈥淕onna wear a hole in the floor at this rate,鈥 Steve remarked as he watched.聽
Bucky paused, glancing at his friend before continuing. 鈥淐an鈥檛 help it.鈥
鈥淵ou鈥檙e awful worked up, Buck. Nerves?鈥
Bucky paused again. 鈥淕uess so.鈥
鈥淵ou need to calm down,鈥 Steve growled, stepping into his path to stop him. 鈥淚f you go running in there like this, you鈥檙e going to scare her.鈥
Bucky raised his lip in a snarl, suddenly incredibly irritated that Steve thought it was a good idea to get in his way. 鈥淢ove.鈥
鈥淕et a grip,鈥 Steve snapped. 鈥淲hat鈥檚 with you?鈥
Bucky glared and gave him a shove, continuing his movements. 鈥淣othing is with me, Steve, I鈥檓 just鈥擨 feel perfectly fine. Better than ever, in fact, and I鈥斺 he stopped, realizing that he was, in fact, not perfectly fine or better than ever.聽
Steve gave him a pointed look. 鈥淪ee?鈥
鈥...Okay, fine.鈥 Bucky sighed. 鈥淚 don鈥檛 know what鈥檚 wrong with me. I鈥檓 just...it鈥檚 nothing. No. I鈥檒l be fine. See? Fine.鈥
He had halted himself completely, but now, his hands were clenching into fists and then unclenching again, his metal fingers clinking against each other quietly.聽
鈥...If you say so.鈥 Steve muttered.聽
鈥淛ust wish we could go in and see her.鈥 Bucky said, his jaw tight. He wanted--no, needed--to know if she was the girl from his dreams.聽
He had barely slept the night before, kept awake by thoughts of whoever she was. The scent he had caught in the hallway was back, and it was just as faint as it had been then. It frustrated him to no end, and if it weren鈥檛 for Steve and his own determination to hold himself back, he would probably be barreling through the bulletproof doors to go figure out exactly who it belonged to.聽
Shit, he had to relax. He always tried so hard to be calmer than all those stupid, knotheaded alphas out there, and yet here he was about to totally lose it over an omega he had never even met before. What was with him? His ruts had always been like clockwork, ever since he first started getting them decades ago, and it seemed unlikely that he would suddenly be going into one early. Besides, he couldn鈥檛 smell any changes in his own scent that would indicate that he was getting close, and someone else would have noticed and said something if they caught a whiff of something weird.聽
...Right?
Yeah, no they totally would. They were his friends and teammates now, and none of them, especially not Steve, would let him just suffer alone.聽
鈥淗ey, fellas?鈥澛
The doors slid open and Bucky snapped to attention. Bruce was standing there, wearing his white lab coat, looking at the two alphas from behind his glasses.聽
鈥淐ome on in.鈥 he beckoned them with a nod, stepping back so that they could enter.聽
Steve gave Bucky a harsh look that said you鈥檇 better hold it together or else and then led the way, walking past Bruce. Bucky followed behind, falling into step not far behind Captain America as they made their way past all of Bruce鈥檚 instruments and machines. With every step, the new omega鈥檚 smell was growing stronger, and before he could stop himself, Bucky was growling.
He hung back, standing near the doorway while Steve approached the hospital bed at the end of the room. The omega was watching the captain warily, a little cardboard juice box clutched in her hand. She didn鈥檛 seem to like him very much, despite knowing that he had pulled her out of an abandoned HYDRA base and probably saved her life, and Steve was surprised to see that her lip was raised in an angry little sneer while she looked at him.
Why was everyone so snarly lately?聽
鈥淗ow are you feeling?鈥 He asked, trying to seem as friendly and nonthreatening as possible. He wasn鈥檛 used to omegas getting an attitude with him like that, and he wasn鈥檛 entirely sure what to do about it.聽
鈥淔ine.鈥 She answered.聽
鈥淢y name is Steve Rogers,鈥 he said, bowing his head slightly with the hope that the submissive gesture might make her feel a bit better about his presence. 鈥淚 found you and got you out of cryo yesterday.鈥
鈥淚 remember.鈥澛
Her responses were short and curt, and she sounded completely disinterested in what he had to say. In truth, she was angry and distracted by the familiar scent of motor oil, earth, and cloves gently wafting through the room. She knew it belonged to him, but she couldn鈥檛 see him. Maybe it was sticking to Steve.聽
She didn鈥檛 like that. She didn鈥檛 like that they were hiding him from her. So she bared her teeth, sharp little fangs exposed in a threat. If she had to, she would show these Avengers guys exactly why HYDRA鈥檚 files all said that she was a fighter.聽
It was hard to keep snarling when she was feeling so exhausted, though. Maybe after another nap she would break something and demand to see her soldier.聽
鈥淪topping HYDRA and cleaning up their remaining bases is one of our top priorities here.鈥 He said, trying to convince her that he wasn鈥檛 the bad guy here. 鈥淚鈥檓 just hoping to talk with you, and maybe get a better idea of what you were doing in their lab.鈥
The omega fiddled with her juice box and then sighed, finally deciding to relent and be nice to him. Maybe she was just too tired to maintain her tough front. 鈥淚t鈥檚 all still fuzzy, but I鈥檒l try to remember whatever you want to know.鈥
鈥淕reat,鈥 Steve smiled warmly at her. 鈥淗ow long were you with them?鈥
Her brow creased as she thought. 鈥...I think they took me in...the fifties.鈥
Bruce鈥檚 eyebrows shot up in surprise.聽
鈥淚 can鈥檛 really remember.鈥 She said. 鈥淚t鈥檚 been so long鈥︹
鈥淪o you remember your life before that?鈥 Steve asked. 鈥淭hey didn鈥檛 wipe your memory?鈥
鈥淣o. Never.鈥 She shook her head and then gave a little laugh, though she didn鈥檛 smile. 鈥淣ot like they did with him.鈥
Back near the doorway, Bucky froze. Was she referring to him? Did she actually know who the Winter Soldier was? He didn鈥檛 even want to think about that now. He shrank back, turning his head away but remaining in the room so that he could keep listening.聽
And because he couldn鈥檛 stand the thought of another alpha being alone with her.聽
Steve cast a quick glance in Bucky鈥檚 direction. 鈥淲ho?鈥
鈥淗im.鈥 She sighed sadly, looking forlorn.
Steve decided not to press further on that front yet and shifted the conversation slightly. 鈥淐an you remember where you came from?鈥
She stared past him, eyes losing focus as she thought. 鈥淭he alps. I lived in a little village at the foot of the alps.鈥
Bucky turned slightly, daring to look towards her bed.聽
鈥淭hey rounded a few omegas up. Paid our families.鈥 Her eyes were glassy as she remembered and dared to finally think about her old home. 鈥淭hen they took us all inside, and put us in a cell with the others.鈥
鈥淥thers?鈥 Steve asked.
Her gaze shifted to him. 鈥淥megas.鈥
鈥淲hat did they do with you?鈥 Bruce asked quietly.
鈥淲hatever they wanted.鈥 She gave a small shrug. 鈥淭hey experimented on some, I think.鈥
鈥淚s that what they did with you? Is that why you were given the serum?鈥澛
She barked a laugh. 鈥淭hey gave me the serum to make me strong. That鈥檚 all they did with me, no other experiments. They didn鈥檛 want to risk messing me up, or else he would be mad.鈥
鈥淲ho?鈥 Steve asked.
The omega got a wistful look on her face and she sighed. 鈥淎lpha.鈥
The sound of her voice had Bucky slowly creeping further into the room. He felt like he had heard it before, maybe in one of his dreams, even though he couldn鈥檛 actually remember it. It was sweet and soothing, the prettiest voice he had ever heard, even though she sounded so tired. It made him want to sit and listen to her talk for hours, about everything or nothing at all. He wouldn鈥檛 be picky, as long as he could be close to her.聽
She closed her eyes and sighed again.聽
鈥淵ou had an alpha there?鈥 Steve asked, eyeing the lack of bond mark on her neck. 鈥淒id they force one on you?鈥
鈥淣o, never forced.鈥 She shook her head, opening her eyes again. 鈥淗e liked me. And I liked him. It was my job to be there for his ruts. They gave me the serum so that I could handle them.鈥澛
Steve and Bruce glanced at each other. They were both thinking the same thing鈥攖hat this all had to involve Bucky鈥攂ut Steve, at least, was hoping that somehow it didn鈥檛. Maybe there was a different brainwashed alpha that HYDRA had needed an omega for. They had tons of bases all over the globe, and they had to have more soldiers than just Bucky in their clutches.聽
Right?聽
Maybe not.
鈥淲ell, you鈥檙e safe now,鈥 Steve said. 鈥淣o one can hurt you here.鈥
She could hear in his tone that he didn鈥檛 believe her when she said her alpha was good to her. He thought that she was just some stupid omega, just like the HYDRA doctors always said she was. A dumb, lovesick little girl, who had spent so long hoping the soldier liked her back that she had convinced herself that he did.聽
She was getting sick of being told what to think.聽
鈥淗e never hurt me.鈥 She hissed, eyes narrowed and focused on Steve. 鈥淗e wouldn鈥檛.鈥
鈥淚 wasn鈥檛 saying that--鈥
鈥淗e wouldn鈥檛!鈥 she snapped, sitting up slightly.聽
Steve put his hands up in surrender, going against every instinct he had to subdue this unruly little omega. She was definitely going to be a handful, at least until they could convince her that nobody was going after her. Her scent was quickly changing, the normally pleasant cinnamon becoming burnt and angry. It wasn鈥檛 typical of an omega in distress, and it didn鈥檛 exactly give him the impression that she needed to be comforted. It felt more like she was about to attack, and he didn鈥檛 exactly want to feel how hard those teeth could bite down on his arms.聽聽
Behind him, Steve could hear a quiet growl, and he turned to see that Bucky was standing in the middle of the room. Great. Just what he needed. More tension.
鈥淏ack off, Buck,鈥 he warned, turning to face his friend.聽
Bucky ignored him, of course, stalking forward with his nostrils flared to take in the omega鈥檚 scent. He needed to finally figure out who she was, and why she was having so much of an effect on him. That meant he needed to get Steve out of the way, though.聽
鈥淏uck, I mean it,鈥 Steve warned.聽
鈥淢ove, Rogers.鈥 Bucky snarled, approaching his friend.聽
Buce was quickly backing out of the way, pinching the bridge of his nose in frustration. This wasn鈥檛 how he had hoped things would go at all.
With Bruce and Steve both out of the way, the omega in the hospital bed could finally see the third man in the room. She dropped her little juice box, fully sitting up as she took in the sight of him, her big, grumbly soldier, who smelled so good and had such a tight grip on her heart.聽
As he snarled in Steve鈥檚 face, Bucky heard a sharp intake of breath and finally turned his attention to the omega. She was reaching for him, arms outstretched hopefully, and in a moment he had abandoned Steve to rush towards her. He wasn鈥檛 even fully aware of what he was doing, he just knew he needed to get to her before anyone else could. Steve tried to grab at his arm, but he was too slow, and before anyone could stop him, Bucky was at the omega鈥檚 side, looking down at her with a mix of confusion and wonder on her face.聽
鈥淎lpha,鈥 she sighed happily, reaching for his face.聽
He leaned down for her, and the moment her fingers touched his jaw, a loud purr began rumbling in his chest. 鈥淥mega鈥︹
鈥淚 knew it was you,鈥 she whispered as he crouched at her bedside. 鈥淚 knew it, I knew it鈥︹
Bucky wasn鈥檛 even sure what was going on, but he wasn鈥檛 thinking about the details. He was happy, and as he leaned forward to nudge at her throat with his nose, he could swear he felt little sparks flying around in his chest. She smelled just like she did in his dreams, like pine forests and stargazing and cinnamon desserts, and as he pressed his forehead against hers, he felt completely, unequivocally, happy.
Steve and Bruce looked at each other nervously. This wasn鈥檛 what they had expected at all, and as he watched his friend, Steve couldn鈥檛 help but worry that this would spell trouble for Bucky.聽
