    Summary

    Steve always thought it was silly how easily girls fell for Bucky, even though they must have known he would only break their hearts. Told himself that he would require more than a few sweet words and a cocky grin. But thinking that while watching Bucky charm his way into a girl’s bed for the night is completely different from being on the receiving end of it.

    Bucky teaches Steve how to flirt.

    Summary

    “You should be careful of that one,” Mr. Hendrickson says, with a nod to Bucky outside the window. “It ain’t right. Looking at you all the time as he does. The way he should be looking at girls.”

     

     

    Steve laughs, because damn, but what a ridiculous idea.

     

    Or, five times Steve caught Bucky looking at him, and the one time he looked first.

    Summary

    Stigmatised property is property which may be shunned for reasons other than its physical condition. Reasons like a murder or a belief that it's haunted. Most jurisdictions require mandatory disclosure to a buyer where the property's stigmatised nature could affect its value. There's no such requirement to inform renters.

    Steve should have asked more questions, but a two bedroom apartment with good light in that part of the city? At that price? He couldn't say no. He needed a place to live at a price he could afford and, well, gift horses and mouths, he wasn't going to look too closely.

    There was a reason the apartment was so cheap. There was a reason tenants didn't last. There was always a reason for everything. Steve should have remembered that. He was about to be reminded, because his name might be on the lease, but it wasn't his apartment.

    Something already lived there.
