    Summary

    When the Statue of Liberty slides into view, the whole ship roars. It’s deafening. Bucky throws his fist in the air and yells along with everyone else. His heart is in his throat. The Statue of goddamn Liberty. Bucky wants to climb up her robe and kiss her sour green face.

    The cheers rise up again as they go by her, and then die back down; most of the guys are just happy to sit and smile and watch the city float lazily into focus. They know they’ve got days more of barracks and bunks and cheap train seats before they’ll get to see their families in Pittsburgh, or Columbus, or Chicago. But Bucky’s home, he can see Brooklyn, and he laughs and shades his eyes from the sun and feels crazy with happiness, and this has to be the slowest fucking boat in the world, but at least he has a good view while he dies of impatience.

    ------

    In 1945, Bucky comes home from the war.

    Summary

    “You want lunch now or later?” Steve asks. He rustles the bags illustratively as he toes off his shoes.

    “I read you this story,” Bucky says, instead of answering. “Sholem Aleichem. Tevye and his daughters. Do you remember?”
