“how long we here for?” sam asked, settling down into the sand on the edge of the water. he brought the bottle of rum he was carrying to his lips and downed one long, smooth gulp that stirred something within bucky he didn’t want to question. “buck?”
“three days,” bucky replied, easing into the spot next to sam. "give or take."
the moon hung heavy in the sky, casting a pale glow against everything beneath it, somehow making sam appear even more beautiful, even more enticing, and therefore even more difficult for bucky to take his eyes off of.
“well, we can’t stay here,” sam said, oblivious to bucky's eyes on him. “i don’t think i can go another day without a hot shower and some real food. that so-called safe house needs to be restocked.”
“what?” bucky asked, smirking. “canned meat not to your liking?” he stole another glance at sam splayed out in the sand, his head tilted back and bathed in white light. this time, sam caught him staring and bucky quickly averted his gaze, eyes fixed on his own hands as sam chuckled.

"when do you need me to help?"
sam stopped cleaning his shirt and frowned. "‘help’? what—"
"you need me to help you move, right?” bucky took a forced sip from his mug, his mouth pressed into a tight line as he brought it to his lips. when he lowered it, his eyes were distant and glassy and the realization hit sam just as bucky shifted his attention to somewhere else in the room. “when are you moving?"
"buck, i want us to get a place. you know, together."
"oh. oh," he said again, this time much softer, looking down at his hands on the table. "when you say 'get a place' you mean..."
"a place of our own. a house."
"a house. you want to get a house. together. right." bucky nodded and gulped down the rest of his coffee. "okay.”

"the best portion of your life will be the small, nameless moments you spend smiling with someone who matters to you.”
a place for me to put all of my sambucky writings that are too short to post on their own!
excerpt from latest entry:
falling in love with sam was easy.
it only took a smile, a hug, and a simple, "hey. how's it going, buck?" prior to their first mission together for bucky to confirm what he'd felt the moment they were introduced.
it was all the stuff that came with it—the lingering stares, the yearning to touch and kiss and hold—that bucky struggled with, unable to shake the fluttering in his stomach whenever sam did so much as glance in his direction.
and as the days turned into weeks and then eventually years, those feelings only grew—unruly and deeply rooted feelings that overran bucky's heart until he could no longer keep them to himself.

“you can have the shower,” sam said, exiting the bathroom and tightening the towel around his waist.
“is there any hot water left or did you leave it all on the floor?”
“look.” sam stepped into the boxers he’d just retrieved from his dresser drawer. “just because you like to take five-minute showers doesn’t mean i can’t enjoy long ones. and you know, you could always—”
“yeah, i prefer to shower solo, but,” bucky pointed the book he’d been reading in sam’s direction, “thanks for the invite.”
“the offer’s always there. whenever you’re ready.”
he glanced back at bucky and found him smirking from the bed, his eyes still on him even after he got up to leave. sam lowered his head with a smirk of his own, passing over different shirts to allow himself more time to soak in the welcomed attention.
“like what you see?” sam asked.
bucky placed a hand on his hip and whispered, “always,” pressing a parting kiss to his cheek and disappearing into the bathroom, leaving sam with his face hot and prickling just from his touch.

sam crossed his arms and inspected the lobby. they were indeed the only people there, not including the few staff members seated at a table near a magenta-tinted arcade area with their noses buried in their phones.
"i think i can help with that," a voice said from behind sam.
sam turned and found himself face to face with the clerk they'd bought their tickets from earlier, the scruffy-looking man that seemed a little out of place amongst the younger staff. sam gave him a quick scan, his eyes catching the name plastered to his chest via a paper name tag, scribbled by hand using a marker.
"and what exactly can you do for us...bucky?" sam frowned. what kind of name was ‘bucky’?
"i can be your extra," he said, removing a hairband from his wrist and swiftly tying up his hair into a tidy bun. with more of him now visible, sam could get a better view of his face, all hard lines and soft eyes. "and it's a nickname," bucky added, smirking and moving past a puzzled sam towards the game room. "c'mon, let's suit up."
