Natasha stormed to her suite and slammed the door, locking it. She slid down to the floor beside it and curled into a ball. Seconds later, a knock landed on her door.
"Natasha? Nat, you know I didn't mean what I said. I shouldn't have even said it."
"Leave me alone, Steve." she snapped.
"Nat, I would never purposely try to hurt you. Please, just open up."
"Go away! Stay out of my life!" she yelled. On the other side, Steve looked disheartened and nodded.
"Alright. If that's what you want. Ill leave you alone from now on." and with that he left. Natasha immediately negated her decision and flung open the door. "Steve?" he was gone. Her face fell and she shut the door, going to her bed. That night, both soldier and spy cried themselves to sleep.
Steve followed through with what he said and was moved out by the next afternoon. Natasha couldn't stop him as she was out on a mission, but she found out when she went to rekindle with him and found his suite empty.
"Where's Steve?!" she demanded, running into the living room.
"Gone." Bruce replied. "He got taken off the Avengers and now he could be anywhere."
She was heartbroken. Steve thinks she hates him. And over something she realized was a misunderstanding. She had overheard him and Stark talking and they were talking about Natasha's strange liking of potato vodka. "She is Russian." Steve said, and in her mind he was saying that negatively.
She put her hands over her face and sobbed in his empty suite.
They did not see one another again for 3 months. It was an all out battle, one that not only involved the Avengers, but the Fantastic Four, X-Men, Spider-Man, just about every superhero known in the world.
She dove down behind a blown out tank, as the Skrulls fired at her. As she got up to fire again, a beam was shot towards her. Just before it hit her, a familiar shield came from no where and deflected it. She turned to see Steve catch it. He looked pretty battle worn, he was missing his mask and there was a gash noticeable on his chest. Once he reclaimed his shield, he took off. She tried to go after him.
"Steve, wait!" she called, but a Skrull came up from behind her. She turned her attention to it and snapped its neck. Steve was gone. She sighed and rejoined the battle.
It was when the fighting was done hat she got her chance. She walked towards the mass group of heroes congratulating one another. She spotted Steve talking to a hero named Deadpool and she ran to him. He turned towards her as she jumped onto him, wrapping her arms around his back.
"Don't abandon me again. Promise me."
Steve was taken aback as he put his arms around her. "I promise, Nat. Never again."
She looked into his eyes, and he saw tears stinging at hers. "I was an idiot to think you'd ever insult me."
"Nat, I love you too much to do that. You're my best friend."
She smiled and kissed him. Deadpool silently chuckled.
"That's so sweet, I think I developed a cavity." Steve and Natasha drew guns and shot him. He fell to the ground before getting back up seconds later.
"Not cool!" he exclaimed and walked away. Steve and Natasha resumed their PDA
