Life with Captain America
Stage 1: First Meeting
You tried to hide your nervousness as you walked through the long hallways and large rooms of Avengers Tower. Tony Stark had hired you very recently as a general secretary, although hinted at the possibility of it being very unusual secretarial work, and told you to start getting acquainted with your new work building.
…He’d failed to mention that you would more than likely lose your way within the first few minutes.
So now you were trying, and failing, to make your way back to the main lobby that you’d first come into upon arriving at the tower. You turned corner after corner, unable to find any sort of familiar area that could give you a clue as to where you were.
Another corner turned and all of a sudden you were confronted with a plaid patterned wall.
“…Well this is new,” you muttered, as you held a stare down with this new obstacle before a light cough interrupted your thoughts.
“Excuse me, ma’am? Are you alright?”
You blinked and looked up at the person who spoke, face turning bright red as you realized that you had run into and stared at a very good looking man’s chest. And of course, you had to add to your own embarrassment.
“Any normal woman would be after walking into a chest like that.”
Stage 2: Second Meeting
Today was your second day at Avengers Tower and you sincerely hoped that it didn’t end up going in the same direction as your first day in regards to embarrassment. You didn’t really think the guy you’d run into yesterday would forget that incident so soon, but you could always hope the building was too big and he would never find you.
But these thoughts were pushed into the back of your mind when Tony, who insisted you call him that, told you he wanted you to meet someone. A friend of his, he’d said.
“Although he’s a bit behind the times,” he chuckled as the two of you waited for this person in Tony’s office. The door to the room opened before you could ask what he meant and your face turned red as you recognized the man from the day before. The blush on his face left no doubt in your mind that he remembered your encounter as well.
“About time you showed up, Cap,” Tony said, waving him over. “I thought it wasn’t in your style to leave nice young ladies waiting.”
Tony’s phone went off before this “Cap” could say anything in return.
“Right well. (Name), this is Steve Rogers aka Captain America. Cap, this is (Full Name). Now make nice until I get done with this call.” And with that he left, leaving you with an awkward silence.
“I, um, I’m sorry about yesterday,” you said, refusing to look at the man who you now knew to be one of the Avengers. “I was nervous because I was basically lost and just sort of blurted that out without thinking.”
“That’s uh, that’s alright, ma’am.”
“You can call me (Name),” you said, actually looking at him now which earned you a small, shy smile.
“Alright. (Name). You can just call me Steve.”
