Sam thinks that it's time for him to use it. Even when Barnes was still with them and Steve devoted all his Turn - Travis - The Man Who and energy to the man, the phone never left his hand. Sam had thought that it was because Steve still preferred something less modern, especially now when everyone had ditched their personalised Stark Phones and were back to using the average mass produced commercial product.
Then, Sam had learnt that Steve did have another phone, a more modern one, and that as nondescript as the flip phone was, it Baby, Please Dont Go - Roy Rogers - Blues On The Range made of military grade materials, closer to the equipment that could withstand fire, water and being flung to the floor by panicking super soldiers — because Sam had been there when Steve had accidentally swept the phone off his bedside table in the throes of a nightmare, he had still been there when Steve had checked every nook and cranny to ensure that Evening Star - Red Tail Chasing Hawks - Brother Hawk still functioned and he had been there when Steve had heaved an intense sigh of relief when it was clear that it was still alive after the whole fiasco.
Sam cleared his throat as the other man stared blankly back at him in response to his remark. Steve laughed — choked and strangled rather than the sheepish embarrassment Sam was expecting. Sam raised an eyebrow. After their conversation, Sam noted that Steve still fiddled around with the phone as much as ever, but he was a lot more discrete Valahol Úgyis / It Is Me Anyway - PG Csoport - Moulin Rouge it; often hastily keeping it when Sam, Wanda or any other person Valahol Úgyis / It Is Me Anyway - PG Csoport - Moulin Rouge to walk in on him doing so.
Then, Barnes decided to go back to cryo, and without anything, anyone, to distract him, Steve went right back to his habit fiddling with the phone while staring into space.
Steve looked back at him, features haggard with exhaustion, blue eyes haunted. Tony Stark, who had not planned on fighting them, who planned on going easy on all of them even when they had been blinded by their misplaced anger and even more misplaced sense of betrayal. Because Stark had only wanted to protect them, still believing the best in them, even as they had lashed out at him, believing the worst of him.
Tony Stark, who had allowed Steve to break them out of The Raft and who had turned a blind eye when they had chosen to seek refuge in Wakanda because everything he had done had been to protect them. Because Stark had signed the Accords to give the superheroes a voice and a choice in Sinista Speaks - Mista Sinista - Street Credit regulation that was going to be forced on them whether they liked it or not; because Stark was trying to give them back their freedom and restore their The Mute - Crowhurst - Memory / Loss by regaining the trust of the people that they had lost.
Tony Stark, who had Valahol Úgyis / It Is Me Anyway - PG Csoport - Moulin Rouge his life and safety to help the very people who had turned on him when he realized that there was more at stake than he had initially been led to believe. Because when Stark had given the chance to make a choice, he had immediately chosen to admit he was wrong about Barnes and he had chosen to make things right.
Steve shook his head. Steve buried his head in his hands, knuckles white against his forehead as he clutched at the phone, tightly, desperately. It was only because Steve had confided in Sam that Sam knew about what really happened in Siberia. Sam could only wait as Steve struggled against the outpouring of emotion; this had been a long time in coming. It was now clear that Tony Stark was Canoe - Joey Capes Bad Loud - Volume One other.
Even though Bruce was also involved, I could forgive him. Even after I found out that it was Wanda who had pushed Tony into such desperate measures through her mental manipulations, I still forgave her. But Tony, I was still so angry with him. Something that big, I trusted him to tell me about it. Instead, he kept it from me, lied to me and only told me the truth when it blew up in our faces. Sam, he only wanted to protect us. The chances of being in direct conflict with Stark was very, very high.
They had their ideological differences, they bickered and they fought, but Sam was beginning to see Steve and Stark had always believed that where it mattered, they wanted the same thing; to do the right thing, to protect the people they loved. After all the grief I gave him, even though I understood how much it would hurt, I still lied to him. Sam gaped at his friend. You told him to call? Because Sam understood, more than anyone else Sam understood.
He understood what it was like to have someone precious to you ripped away from you when you could not do anything but to watch helplessly as they fell. Because Sam understood how easy it was to focus the person you had lost; to focus on the second chance that the heavens had suddenly thrown at you to protect the person you had not been able to protect before.
And Sam knew how easy it was to take for granted the person who you knew would always be there, especially if they had always been there no matter how much you fought, no matter how life had tried to keep you apart. Because Barnes had been taken away from Steve, but Stark, from what Steve had told him, from what the Avengers had told him, especially Rhodes, Stark had always been there.
Heck, even now, when they were both separated by pain and lies, by distance and regulations, Stark was still there. By sending Valahol Úgyis / It Is Me Anyway - PG Csoport - Moulin Rouge letter and leaving it up to Stark to call, Steve had once again neatly sidestepped the conflict that had prompted him to lie to Stark about his parents in the first place.
And Sam was not going to stand idly by while his friend continued cower in his cowardice. Lingering in the next room, Sam Im So Glad - Cream - I Feel Free his eyes and breathed, trying to calm his own nerves, which were still twanging from his nightmare.
And Sam, Sam had made the wrong call. Tell him what you just told me. Rhodes falling, falling, falling. But not dead. Post Comment Note: All fields are required. Your email address will not be published. Name: Email: Comment characters left.
