Time Warp || Steve & James
So in truth, Steve would have still had his own secret lover as a surprise. Yet why wouldn’t he have told James if he was his own son? Maybe he’d eventually find the answers to all this once things actually unraveled for themselves. His eyes were often drifting down towards the floor where the endless thoughts and queries revealed themselves within the deep abyss of his very mind. His lips pursed as he was trying to take this all in. What he’d been trying to convince himself was how the younger male had known all so much about him and why he would have claimed to be his son. This entire event was completely confusion-inducing, it even had its major effects on the super-soldier for he was scarcely aware of what was sensible and what wasn’t.
Imagining what his own self-proclaimed son was depicting, a few images of Stark and himself came to mind. Being a man who was stubborn with things regarding his beliefs, it would have taken a lengthy process in taking in all that’s happening right now. Believing James right away, even with all the information he managed to possess, was just odd. Besides, the Captain even personally knew a Norse God, yet he still only believed in one god. It basically showed how determined Steve was whenever a subject he had faith in was questioned. The silence almost felt longer than it legitimately was; Steve was actually leaning towards believing him. Regardless, why would the youth be lying about being his son? Unless he was that desperate on getting a dad like the Captain.
“So .. I didn’t tell you?” That was the first thing he was getting from all of this — besides the younger male being his own son of the future. Looking back up at the other, there were still many questions he was tempted to ask, although he did also have to think if they were inquiries worth asking.
James could see that Steve was having issues with it all. He couldn’t blame him, because he’d be having issues too. If he were in the year 2031 and somebody came to the future he’d probably laugh at them. At least Steve wasn’t laughing, and seemed to be taking it all seriously. He figured that the man would, for he was always serious about things that weren’t funny.
The teenager looked back up when Steve spoke again, and he shook his head in response. “No. As far as I know, you never told anyone. Doesn’t mean they couldn’t have lied about not knowing, but…”
He had basically harassed Tony for months, trying to get the man to admit to something, or to at least break into the SHIELD database and look for it there. Tony didn’t, of course, either because he respected his friend’s privacy or he already knew.
James stood up from the chair, finding that he wasn’t feeling faint anymore, and walked to the kitchen, right where it always was. He figured that Steve wouldn’t like him having any alcohol, as much as he really needed it at the moment, and so opened the fridge in search of something else he could drink. He found some orange juice and poured it into a glass.
