A/N: This is part 2 of Sunshine. BTW I haven’t had a tattoo done before so I’m just winging it. I want to get one tho ngl. I hope you enjoy.
Warning: slight angst, fluff
“MOMMY! WAKE UP!” Aiden jumped onto the sleeping woman’s form. She groaned and rolled over to her side, hoping it was just a dream. “Mommy! Come on! Your phone is ringing!” (Y/N) huffed in frustration, realizing that her phone was blaring loudly on her nightstand. She slowly opened her eyes and winced at the brightness that struck her eyes, coming from the open curtained windows. Aiden sat on her side and tilted his head, his blue eyes showed energy getting ready to burst. He smiled widely, showing his little pearly whites, “Mommy, you have to get up! You have your appointment today!” Aiden crawled off of her, sitting on the foot of the bed. (Y/N) covered her head with her bed covers and cuddled into her pillows. There was complete silence surrounding her as her phone missed the call.
She moaned softly at the sudden silence and softness of her bed. She began to drift off into wonderland with a certain beefy brunette on her mind. There he was, standing at the park where they first met with her favorite flowers in his hand. His flannel was tied around his slim waist and his muscles bulged out of his tank top. His hair let loose and free. He was beefy and (Y/N) wanted a taste. She began to drool at the sight of him, hearts for eyes. He approached her and yelled in her son’s voice, “GO GET HER, SUNSHINE!!” She flinched at his sudden outburst, “uh, what?”
Suddenly something body slams the woman awake. She burst her eyes open and began to panic. Her son’s giggles and a certain canine’s playful groaning interrupted her sudden screech. She removed the cover from her head and saw her son laying on his back, laughing while Sunshine cuddled into (Y/N)’s form. Sunshine rolling around while balancing on (Y/N).
(Y/N) groaned while rubbing away the sleep from her face and smiled at her son, sighing, “oh so you think this is funny, young man?” The boy stopped and gasped, “of course not, Mommy!” She began to softly scratch behind Sunshine’s ear, “I spy with my little eye, a little cute liar~.” Aiden’s face turned pink with embarrassment, “u-uh no Mommy. I know I’m cute but I’m not little or a liar!”
(Y/N) gave him a small smirk, “Has Uncle Loki been teaching you how to lie?” Aiden pressed his index fingers together and gave his mother an innocent look, “m-maybe.” (Y/N) bursted out laughing, “I guess I’m going to have a little chat with dear ol’ Uncle Loki about his little habits.”
“No! Don’t let Uncle Loki get in trouble!” He grasped her covered leg and pleaded with his eyes, playfully. (Y/N)’s phone interrupted their conversation. She answered, “hello?”
“FOR FUCKS SAKE WOMAN! FINALLY! Do you know how many times I’ve been trying to reach you?!”
(Y/N) winced at the loud voice coming from her phone, “L-Loki?”
(Y/N) snickered, “Aiden and I were just talking about you.”
“Yeah, I heard you’ve been teaching him how to lie.”
“Now now (Y/N), let’s not get too hasty. I did no such thing!”
(Y/N) tilted her head, “Loki, I can hear you lying through your teeth.”
There was silence on the other end of the line.
“…. I guess you caught me.”
Aiden giggled, hearing his uncle admit defeat.
“Anyway enough about me teaching your son how to lie, very poorly at that. What time is your appointment with the stud?”
(Y/N) scratched Sunshine’s head, earning a satisfied groan from the dog, “at 12, why?”
“Because I want to see this man that has you all hot and both-”
“Hey hey hey! I have a kid here!”
“Awwww but he already knows that you like the stud.”
(Y/N) whispered into the phone while covering the side of her face, away from Aiden’s gaze, “he doesn’t know I like Bucky.”
“You like Mister Bucky?!” Yelled Aiden. She uncovered her face and looked at her son horrified, “u-uh no!” “Mommy is lying! Mommy is lying!”
Loki laughed on the other end, “awwww Mommy got caught lying in front of her son!”
“I’m not! And don’t call me Mommy!”
“Oh I’m just teasing, my dearest!”
“No you’re not!”
“I’m really not,” he chuckled.
She groaned and rubbed her face.
“I’m sure this “Bucky” fellow would absolutely l o v e to hear that in his ear.”
“SHUT UP LOKI! I SWEAR I WILL STAB YOUR FACE!”
Aiden laughed and laid his head on Sunshine’s body, “Mommy is shy! Mommy has a crush on Mister Bucky! Mommy has a crush on Mister Bucky! And he’s gonna be my daddy!” He skipped out of her room and down the hall. His voice echoed.
(Y/N) got silent. Her breath suddenly escaped her lungs. A cold sensation ran through her body.
“(Y/N)…. I know you are terrified right now but you have to snap out of it.”
(Y/N) covered her mouth, her eyes began to water, her words muffled but Loki clearly heard, “He never asked about his father or even mentioned wanting one…. Why all of a sudden?” Sunshine lifts her head and stares at her older owner. Concerned filled her as she can sense (Y/N)’s demeanor changed to distress.
“He likes this ‘Bucky’ character. He can also see that you like him too. I mean he’s basically perfect.”
She lowered her voice, “I don’t even know if Bucky likes me and even if he did, would he even consider fathering my child? Would he judge me for going out and having a child in a non-traditional way?”
Loki sighed, “darling, I know you can sense when I’m lying so please listen to this honest truth. From what you have told me, he seems like a really nice guy. He respected you. He cared about your son finding his perfect furry friend. He even gave you his phone number instead of his work number. I mean what tattoo artist does that?!”
(Y/N) thought long and hard about the facts Loki laid out for her. She thought about the multiple sweet late night conversations she has had with Bucky over the past couple of weeks. He asked about her likes, dislikes, her hobbies, dreams, and listened about her silly adventures as a child. He shared his stories in return, his weaknesses. Stories about war and why he got his sleeve.
Bucky: After my honorable discharge from the military, I knew my arm was a scary thing to look at. My dreams of becoming a family man went down the drain every time I looked at it. The thought of my future family looking at it and fearing me, scared me to death. I mean who would want to be with me with this hanging around? I guess you can say that I was too much of a coward to embrace my survival mark so I decided to cover it. I learned how to tattoo in the military, so I used that to start my scar cover up. It was so fucking painful but I did it. I made something I thought that was ugly, beautiful.
(Y/N): I believe that if someone loves you enough, that they’ll look past your arm and just see you. You’re an amazing person, Buck. Like you said it’s a mark of your survival but whatever makes you happy, then I am here for it :)
Bucky: You make me happy, Dollface. You, Aiden and Sunshine. ;)
Although Bucky did tell her to just walk into his shop, she still called his shop and made an appointment. She didn’t tell him that she was coming later that day but she hoped that he would be happy to see her and Aiden.
“You got silent on me. Let me know that you’re doing okay.”
(Y/N) huffed out a laugh, “I’m fine, Loki. Just thinking about something.”
“Oh? Is it Buuuucccckkkkyyyy~????”
Loki laughed on his end and (Y/N) hung up mid laugh. She groaned and put her hands on her face, “fuck…. I think I love Bucky.” Sunshine silently licked her owner’s hands, catching (Y/N)’s attention. She huffed another laugh and rubbed Sunshine’s belly, “come on, Sunshine. I have to go get ready! And you have a date with a sunbath.” Sunshine gave her owner a satisfied groan and hopped off of the bed, walking out of the room to look for Aiden.
“Aiden! Please get ready, sweetheart!”
From the other side of the house, she heard a faint, “okay Mommy!” He began to grab his backpack and started to pack it up with toys and coloring books.
She smiled to herself and started to get ready for her appointment.
After an hour of getting ready, finishing their food, and putting Sunshine in the backyard to catch some sun, the pair left and decided to walk to Bucky’s tattoo shop. Aiden grasped his mother’s hand and started to lead her to their destination. He had a feeling of excitement running through his body. As for (Y/N), she was terrified that Aiden would say something that would make Bucky run away.
Aiden turned his head to look at his mother from the corner of his eye, “do you think Mister Bucky will remember me?”
(Y/N) smiled at her son, “of course he will remember you, sweetheart! Nobody will ever forget your cute little face!”
Aiden gasped and smiled as wide as he could. They both approached and entered the tattoo shop. It was cozy and felt like home. There were some people looking over some books with some drawings in it while others looked at the walls full of art prints and photos of the employees. They looked like a family.
“May I help you?” A woman with short red hair called out to (Y/N) from behind the counter. “U-Uh yes!” (Y/N) and Aiden approached the counter, “I have an appointment at 12 with Bucky Barnes.”
The woman looked at the computer, “(Y/N) (L/N)?” (Y/N) nodded. The red head smiled, “oh right on time too. He’s in the back, I’ll get him for you.” She was about to walk off but turned back to (Y/N), “by the way, my name is Natasha but you can call me Nat.” She winked then disappeared from sight and the pair decided to look around the shop.
Aiden gasped and pointed at a couple of drawings of traditional designs of roses, skulls, lettering, ships, and animals. “Mommy, do you know what you are going to get?” She nodded in response and put her index finger to her lips, “it’s a secret though.”
“You have to tell me what it is if you want it.” A familiar voice interrupted the pair. They turned around and saw Bucky approaching them. He wore a tank top, his hair tied back, combat boots adore his feet and army pants hugged his thick muscled legs. (Y/N)’s cheeks suddenly began to grow hot and she gulped audibly. He crossed his arms over his chest and tilted his head slightly to the side, “you never told me you were coming.” She laughed nervously in response, “w-well it slipped my mind!”
Aiden let (Y/N)’s hand go and stood next to Bucky, crossing his arms, matching Bucky’s stance, “Mommy is lying like my Uncle Loki.”
(Y/N) gasped, “Am not!”
Bucky laughed, “Are you ready for me, Dollface?”
(Y/N) made eye contact with Bucky, “All the time.”
Bucky smirked and led them both to the back.
After preparing the chair and equipment and having Aiden sit in another stool by a table in the corner of the room, Bucky ushered (Y/N) into the chair and sat next to her in his stool, “alright Dollface, what do ya want?”
(Y/N) bit her lower lip and whispered, “you know I love my son with all of my heart? And Sunshine too?”
Bucky nodded and whispered, “of course I do.”
“Well…. Someday my boy is going to leave me for his future and Sunshine won’t be around all the time…. So I want someth-”
Bucky cut her off, “say no more, Dollface. You’re gonna make me cry.” They both quietly laughed, “let me surprise you with what I can do. No stencil. Just something on the spot. Something simple.” She nodded in agreement and Bucky began the process. Aiden began to play with his toys but eventually stopped and looked at the man creating art on his mother’s skin. Her shoulder was completely exposed to Bucky. They were facing each other and as close as ever. (Y/N) slightly winced a couple of times but not enough to worry Bucky or her son.
She looked over at her son and saw that he was lost in thought, face full of concentration onto what Bucky was doing. She looked down at Bucky’s concentrated face. She began to see the similarities the two held. The blue eyes. The brown hair. The perfectly structured nose. Their carbon copied stance from earlier. There were so many similarities, that it slightly scared her.
“What are you thinking about?” Bucky muttered.
She muttered back, “nothing.”
Bucky stopped his tattooing for a second, dipped his machine into the little cups of ink and looked at her questioningly, “there’s something on your mind. You know you can tell me anything.” he continued his work on her shoulder. She sighed and whispered, “you’re going to think I’m fucking crazy….”
He looked up for a brief moment and slightly smirked, “when it comes to you…. I’m willing to put up with crazy.”
“E-ever since I’ve meant you…. I’ve started to see some similarities in you and Aiden…. I-It’s fucking crazy, I know.”
Bucky stopped his work, looking at her with widened eyes, “S-Sam said that too.”
(Y/N) snickered, “but the odds of that are basically zero though.”
Bucky turned off his machine and put it aside, “you know there may be a small chance but even I doubt that small chance even happening…. It’s just that, you’re such a beautiful woman so I doubt that you would have problems getting with someone to have a kid like him.”
(Y/N) huffed a pathetic laugh, “I-I…. you’re wrong.”
Bucky began to clean up her tattoo, “I mean there is nothing wrong with you…. You are so amazing and thoughtful and loving and all of these things that I want in a woman and so I wonder to myself late at night…. Why hasn’t anyone put a ring on that finger or claimed you as theirs?”
(Y/N) shifted in place, “b-because I’m always the one getting my heart broken…. I have had enough and I wanted something in the end. I wanted a child to love with all of my heart…. Even if it meant not having a man in my life.”
Bucky nodded, “I bet his father would be proud of what kind of kid Aiden is.”
She smiled, “I know if I actually had a relationship with his father that he would be proud of his son but I don’t know if they’ll even meet in this lifetime.’
Bucky grabbed a hand mirror and paused, “what do you mean, Dollface?”
“After my last breakup, I decided to have a baby of my own but I didn’t want to get hurt…. So I decided to go to a sperm bank in Brooklyn. It was the best decision of my life.”
Bucky’s eyes widened, his lip trembled slightly, “B-Brooklyn?”
She nodded, “yes, is there something wrong?”
Bucky shook his head, “n-no um lemme show you your new tattoo.” Bucky gave her the mirror and she saw the talent Bucky possessed. She gasped at the sight of it.
It was gorgeous. It was a simple design. Two hearts next to each other with a single letter in both of them. The letters were in cursive. One said S and the other said A. Sunshine. Aiden.
“I knew you would like something simple for your first so I decided to do some calligraphy with simple heart shapes.”
“I love it,” she put the mirror down and hugged Bucky as tight as she could, “thank you Buck!”
Before Bucky could hug her back, Aiden put on his backpack and ran to the two adults, “Mommy! I wanna see!” (Y/N) removed herself from Bucky and showed her son. He gasped at the little artwork, intrigued and mesmerized on the talent, “It’s so beautiful! Just like you, Mommy!”
(Y/N) snickered and ruffled her son’s hair, “you’re too kind, sweetheart.” She began to collect her things and asked Bucky, “how much?”
Bucky wrapped up her tattoo and began to clean up his work station, “it’s free, Dollface.”
(Y/N) crossed her arms, “no way! I need to pay you for your service!”
Bucky crossed his arms, “and I refuse to take your money, Dollface.”
(Y/N) narrowed her eyes, “I need to pay you. Tip and everything.”
Bucky smirked, “well then, how about a date then?”
(Y/N) froze. “She’d loved to, Mister Bucky!” Aiden responded for her and giggled.
Bucky snickered, “well? Guess you don’t have a choice, Dollface~”
(Y/N) licked her lower lip, “Surprise me, Barnes.”
Bucky’s smirk widened, “you got it.”
Bucky walked them to the front, “ya know, Imma woo you to death so don’t bother backing out.”
(Y/N) rolled her eyes, “I won’t, Barnes.”
“Hey Buck! Are you ready for lunch?” A familiar voice reached (Y/N)’s ears. She froze and began to feel a sense of panic. Aiden’s hand was in hers but she could comprehend her surroundings besides her and the voice she desperately wanted to forget.
Bucky responded, “yeah, just finishing up with my favorite people.” He winked at her but stopped when he noticed her scared face.
“Oh yeah, who’s that?” the voice snickered.
(Y/N) knew she had to face the man she dreaded to run into ever since he cheated on her. She turned and faced him. Steve Rogers. The man that broke her. The man that pushed her over the edge.
Steve made eye contact with her and gasped silently, “(Y-Y/N)?”
(Y/N) audibly gulped. Aiden tugged her hand, “Mommy?”
Steve looked at Aiden, eyes wide, “Buck…. You never told me you fucked my ex and had a kid with her!”
“What the hell are you talking about?”
(Y/N) breath quivered with her lower lip.
Aiden pointed at Steve and looked at his mother, “MOMMY, HE SAID A NO-NO WORD!”
Steve gritted his teeth together, fists tightening, “You little fucking slut! I cheat on you and you decided to go behind my back and fuck my friend?!”
Bucky got in front of (Y/N) and Aiden, “You better shut your filthy mouth before I rip it off your face…. A kid is present.”
Steve bit the inside of his lip and looked between Aiden and Bucky. The similarities were there. The eyes. The hair. The stance. The angry looks on their faces. No question about it that Aiden is Bucky’s kid.
(Y/N) took a deep breath in and picked up her son. She began to take out some money and put it on the counter. She walked past Steve and went home with her son held closely to her form.
Bucky looked at the counter, grabbed the money and realized that even though he didn’t give her a price, she overpaid. He pushed Steve out of the way and ran outside to catch up to her.
When he looked left and right for the pair, he realized they disappeared.
A/N: Also if you really want it, then I’ll make a part 3 because I feel like there is more stuff to be said and done. Let me know! Thank you for reading and stay safe!
