“Don’t forget me, alright?.” Bucky Barnes x fem! reader
Prompt: After being fatally stabbed, Bucky holds you in his arms and you say your last goodbyes before dying in his arms.
“I love you so much James Buchanan Barnes.
Don’t forget me, alright?”
Warnings: Sadness, blood, death.
You chased after Karli Morgenthau, the leader of the flag smashers. She gained speed but you’re just as fast, so you sped up hoping to stop her.
Finally, you had managed to corner her. With no where to go, you held your gun towards her, “Karli, there’s no where to go, just give up.”. Karli’s eyes dart around the room, hoping to find some form of escape. You keep your hand gripped on the gun, knowing she would give up. “Please Karli.”.
She looks at you as she’s trying to form words. “I…”. Her eyes move from you, to behind you but you’re confused. “Karli-.”. A sharp pain in your back makes you drop the gun in surprise. You have no idea what just happened until you hear “Shouldn’t have messed with me.”, but when you turned to look who it was they were just gone.
You feel tears prick at the corners of your eyes, as you stare at Karli. She looks like she’s going to help, but ends up running off past you. “G-great.”. Then you fall to the ground with a *thud.”. You shakily move your hand to touch your back, and when you pull your hand back to look your eyes widen at the amount of blood. “D-damnit.”. You lay on the ground, your hand moving to your comms as you communicate through to the first person you think to. “B-bucky, it’s (y/n), I’ve just been stabbed and am bleeding out really badly. I’m at (location)”. Then you drop the device as you continue to lay there in agonising pain.
Bucky is fighting a flag-smasher when he hears your voice come through. “B-bucky, it’s (y/n). I’ve just been stabbed and am bleeding out really badly. I’m at (location).”
Bucky feels his heart stop. He quickly knocks out the flag-smasher before running off to where you are. His heart races fast as his feet hit the ground, hard. He rounds the corner and then approaches your location, his feet now hitting cement ground. “(Y/N)?!”. He continues running until he finally gets to you, but when he sees you laying on the ground, hand covered in blood he feels tears well in his blue eyes. “(y/n), oh my god!”.
You look at Bucky who’s now kneeling in front of you. “What happened?”. “I don’t know Buck, I d-didn’t have enough time to see who stabbed me.”. “W-where did you get stabbed?”. “My back.”. Bucky puts his hand on your back gently, pulling his hand back but when he sees how much you’re bleeding out, he panics even more. “Okay everything…everything will be alright doll, I promise you.”. He wraps an arm around you and goes to lift you but you scream in pain, body slumping back down to your original position.
“B-bucky, it hurts so much. I-I don’t…I don’t think you can move me.”. Bucky shakes his head in disagreement, wanting to get you the hell out of there and to help. “Please Bucky…”. He looks into your eyes, tears rushing down his cheeks. “I need help- Wait, i’ll call Sam, he can come.”. He grabs his comms and communicates through to Sam, knowing that he’d be able to help. He has to.
“See? Everything’s alright.”. You…you know everything isn’t. That even when Sam does arrive, you still can’t be moved, that it’s too late.. “James”. You take his hands in yours, “I-it’s too late-.”. “No! No (y/n), it’s not. Sam will be able to help, he’ll-.”. “Sweetheart.”. You cut him off, squeezing his hands while tears rush down your cheeks as well. It hurts so much but you have to stay strong. “Y-you’re right, it’s alright…it’s alright because you’re here with me.”.
He’s already lost so much so you’ve wanted to try and stay alive, for him. Though in reality you should have realised this might have happened. “I-i’m fading James, so I don’t have much time but…”. You bring his hands up to your lips, placing a kiss on them. “I love you so much. You’re my per-person, my first love, and you mean more than anything to me. I’m glad you’re the person I chose to spend my life with b-before this happened because y-you..”. You start to cough, blood being coughed up. “You’re my everything, and I mean that.”. He blinks away tears, his expression a mix of heart-break/sadness. “T-this can’t be happening, I can’t- god I can’t lose you (y/n), I’ve already l-lost so much already.”.
Sam finally arrives “Bucky-” but when he sees you dying in Bucky’s arms his hand flies to his mouth, eyes widening and he feels tears prick at his eyes. He doesn’t say anything however…he doesn’t know what to say.
“I know.”. you reply, squeezing his hands again. “But you’re strong- the…the strongest person I know, and I know you’ll get through this.”. Bucky leans forward and presses a kiss to your lips…the last kiss you’ll ever share. “I love you so damn much (y/n), before we met I was lost but I found you…I found my home- you’re my home, and I love you more than anything. You’ve made me complete and made me realise that i’m not a monster, and that’s why you’re the best thing that has ever come into my life”.
You know you’re close to dying, so you let out a chuckle, blinking away tears. “I f-feel the same, god I…”. You smile. ”I love you so much James Buchanan Barnes. Don’t forget me, alright?” He nods, “I won’t ever forgot you (y/n) (l/n). I love you.”.
Those are the last words you hear because you take your last breath, and then darkness takes over, eyes closing. Your hold on his hands loosen, and then one falls to the ground. Bucky realising that you’re…gone, begins to sob. He holds onto you tightly, his sobs shaking his body.
He lets out a cry which has so much pain and heartbreak in it, but he doesn’t care who hears, still not realising Sam is standing there despite having wanted him to come and help. He’s too focused on you. He continues holding your body, not wanting to let you go- He can’t let you go.
Not even when Sam approaches him, putting a hand on his shoulder, and telling him he needs to give your body to the paramedics when they arrive. Not even when the paramedics do show up and try taking you off him.
He had just lost the person that made him feel human.
This hurt to write, gah my heart!!
