Bucky needs to get away for a while, so Steve books them a cabin in the woods, and they pack their bags and skip town - for a week, maybe two, or however long they can stay. They get away from the busy city, the bright lights and the constant noise. They find comfort in the sweet song of birds first thing in the morning, the warm evening breeze, the cool water of the lake nearby, where they spend hours swimming, sometimes challenging each other to a race. Other times, though, Steve finds a shallow end and pulls Bucky close to him. They wrap themselves around one another, and make love like that, slowly, tenderly, enjoying the warmth of each others’ bodies in the cold water. It’s a perfect getaway, a safe haven for them, somewhere they can be alone and forget about their worries - and they don’t ever want to leave.
