Don’t fight them, Buck, Steve had said in the dream, in the ice, in the void: Steve had begged. If it hurts, if they just dig deeper, if they just try to take more and it doesn’t do any good, you’ve gotta stop.
Don’t let them hollow this out, and Bucky touches his chest just like Steve does in the memory, feels the heart that betrays him: there and not there. His and not his.
“I need him, but they’ll take me, they’ll wipe me out so I have to hide, I have to go deeper, and deeper, else I’ll burn, I’ll drown, and when he comes, he’s going to come—”
Bucky’s lungs forget how air fits inside them, just then, as the worst comes to mind:
“But what if he gave up?”
