“Once more. I think I figured out the issue,” Thor spoke from across the training room.
Bucky nodded, out of breath. “Yeah, sure just give me a second. My body is still shaking,”
The pair had been working together all day, perfecting a move that they had been working on. In theory Buck would use their arm to send out an EMP pulse that Mjolnir would carry and deal additional damage to electronics as well as people nearby.
The issue that they had been struggling with was getting the pulse to travel with the hammer and get carried along with it. Whenever Bucky shot out the pulse it bounced off Mjolnir instead, sending it back toward them, the last shot hitting Bucky and causing them to blackout.
Thor had to get Dr. Cho and Tony to come down and help, thinking Tony would have a fix to their problem and Cho to help with Bucky. Two hours later Bucky was back on their feet and smiled recovering on the bench while Thor and Tony had a chat.
Bucky shook their head, “I’ll be fine. I just need to stop shaking. Maybe eat something, I don’t know.”
Thor nodded, suddenly picking up Bucky. “I can’t let you be alone, something could happen. I’ll take you to the living quarters and find you nourishment.”
Bucky wanted to protest, but Thor did make a good point, “Can you at least just carry me differently? I’m not a bride.”
Thor stopped and moved Bucky until they were safely on his back. Thor proceeded to carry Bucky to the living quarters of the tower.
“Where do you wish to sit?” Thor asked. “On the couch? Outside in the sun? Do you like the floor?”
“The couch is fine,” Bucky told him.
Even with Thor being as gentle as he could, Bucky slid onto the couch with a groan. Their body was sore and tense. Muscles were knotted up and spasmed. Bucky groaned as their body was hit with wave after wave of pain. Sweat was beading on their forehead and they started to close to throwing up.
“Take this,” Thor said as he came around with some kind of crushed herb. “It’s an Asgardian remedy. It will help.”
Bucky opened their mouth and Thor helped by putting the herb in. Bucky started to chew and the pain in his body vanished. Their body relaxed so much so that they almost slid off the couch.
“I can’t…what’s wrong with my body now?” Bucky asked. Their body was starting to feel like melted butter.
“I must have given too much, my measurements were off. Good news, there’s no pain for twelve hours,” Thor said, trying to not sound panicked but failing spectacularly.
“Twelve hours?!” Bucky slurred, his eyes struggled to open, he was feeling a wave of exhaustion.
“You will be asleep for ten of those hours, it will be alright,” Thor said, he came to sit on the couch, letting Bucky’s head rest on his lap. “It can be the two of us here. Not to worry friend I will not leave your side.”
A beep came from the kitchen. Thor stood up, readjusting Bucky before heading to the kitchen.
He returned a few minutes later and placed a bowl of soup at the coffee table, with slices of grilled cheese. He returned again and he had pillows and a blanket from his room.
Thor found himself caring for Bucky, letting their head rest on his lap over a pillow. He helped feed Bucky and covered them with a blanket. Bucky was beginning to yarn, his body warming up from the soup and the blanket.
“Maybe we can continue tomorrow,” Bucky spoke tiredly, managing to still take a bite from the sandwich and swallow.
“That will be best. I will be here, help the recovery. No more training today.” Thor assured.
Bucky responded with a grunt. “You will get bored,”
“There are those movies I heard so well about,”
“What if you get tired?”
“This couch is comfy enough. I brought an extra pillow,”
“I sleep in the wild half the time. It will not bother me more than silence does,”
“Thor really —“
“Bucky, I will not leave your side until you are well. I will never leave one of my own. You are one of my own. I claim it.”
Bucky let out a breath, managed to move just enough to get comfortable on the couch. Thor let his hand come to comb through Bucky’s hair.
“Rest now, we will continue later Bucky.”
Slowly, Bucky closed their eyes and with their body relaxed and belly full they fell asleep.
