AN: I do not own Twilight or the Avengers. The only thing I own is this story plot right here.
Chapter One: Collision
“Don’t slip.” I thought as I gritted my teeth and continued to run, “Today is not the day to be clumsy.”
I was running in the slick streets of New York between the masses of people crowded in the very heart of the city. I kept looking back and to see flashes of bronze hair coming closer. I turned and pushed myself to go faster while avoiding bumping into the many people in my way.
“The irony, a month ago I was running toward that bronze hair Adonis and now I’m running away.” I chuckled darkly to myself thinking how the situation was eerily similar.
Why am I running away from the vampire that I supposedly love? Well glad you asked because you see the day we returned from the disastrous event in Italy he asked me to marry him. A girls dream come true right? Well that would be wrong, since Edward being the fuckward he is decided he called the shots. I later found out that he wasn’t really planning to change me. All I was to him and his so-called “family” was a walking and talking blood bag. Yeah, that wasn’t going to happen.
So I hightailed out of Forks leaving everything I knew and took a plane ticket to anywhere. I was avoiding having decisions when I boarded the plane to the Big Apple so the psycho Alice couldn’t see me. I thought it would be the best place to hide since there are millions of people living here, but I supposed I was wrong since now I’m being chased by my hell bent ex vampire boyfriend.
“ISABELLA!” He yelled exasperated causing many heads to turn toward him. Good make a scene you douche so I have better chances of escaping while you keep your vampire identity a secret.
“It’s Bella you fucktard!” I yelled back without looking back. I grinned at my use at crude language. It sent a thrill to be able to talk in such a way to the Victorian prude. I guess I never did before because I was blindly following him. I gave in to his archaic mannerisms and become a shell of myself letting him control me.
“Well not anymore” I thought with delight.
I looked up noticing I was gaining some ground getting nearer to the big screens in the middle of Times Square. That meant that the already crowded streets grew bigger in size giving me more of an advantage of blending in and losing him.
I veered right into the street not having a care in the world if a car hit me or not. That’s when I ran into something hard and fell backwards painfully. I slammed into the grimy concrete and felt stabs of pain go up my back.
“Well shit,” I thought sourly as I lay sprawled on the ground temporary stunned, “I did get hit by a car. May I die peacefully then, I guess.”
A hand shot out and grabbed me pulling me into his chest. I stumbled into something hard once again and realized that it was random strangers firm muscles that I ran into and not a car. I blushed fiercely before looking up to apologize. I stopped short when I heard tires screeching as black SUV’s stopped all around us and my eyes widened as man with an eye patch stepped out of one of the cars. I was pulled behind the mystery man protectively and out of reach of the several-armed men that exited the cars.
“At ease soldier!” The man commanded while walking toward us, and the man tensed up considerably in front of me. “Look I’m sorry about that little show back there, but we thought it would be best if we break it to you slowly.”
“What show?” I thought as I looked up to the man’s face for the first time. He looked confused as well and what did they mean by breaking it to him slowly?
The man must of thought the same thing as he looked even more puzzled as he asked, “Break what?”
There was a small pause before he replied, “You have been asleep Cap, for almost seventy years.”
I was astonished looking up to the man up with shock. I studied his face closely looking for any signs of age and coming up blank. He had bright blue eyes, blonde hair, a muscled build, and appeared not that much older than me. I also guessed that by the way the eye patch said Cap that he was a captain in the army. He certainly was attractive for a human man,
Why does this sound so familiar? It’s like I heard this story before when it struck me. This was THE Captain America standing before me protecting me while many scary looking men surrounded us with guns pointing at us. I looked around frantically looking for Edward before finding him behind the growing spectators who have gathered before the incident. He was hiding for now, but who knew for how much longer.
My frantic movements however caught the attention of the very serious looking man. All this time standing here and he hasn’t noticed me until now? Well, I was hiding behind a very large and fine specimen of a man. His body was three times bigger full of muscle than my diminutive physique. He narrowed his one eye at me before addressing me.
“Now I don’t think you were supposed to hear all that,” He said in a stern voice, “I must ask you to forget this ever happened and leave, or something will happen that you might regret.”
Panic washed over me and I grabbed on the Captains arms tightly making him wince at the sudden contact. Hysteria started to bubble up in me as I cried out a resounding, “NO!”
The man quirked his eyebrow at me, “Oh? Please tell me to why I should allow you to stay.”
I gulped as I said quietly, “ I’m being chased.”
“That is not my problem. Call the NYPD.” He said before turning away.
No, I couldn’t let them go at all. If I had a chance of getting away from the grips of Edward and his family, I needed Captain America to save me. Without them I could become dead, or worse a blood bag. I didn’t want either of those things so I had to tell the truth, Volturi be damned.
“Not by humans!” I yelled desperately. That got his attention as he turned back to me. The Captain suddenly whipped his head around and looked into my panicked eyes.
“If not humans, then what is chasing you?” eye patch questioned.
I drew in a breath before answering, “Vampires.”
I held onto that breath as the man contemplated what I said. My whole body tense and ready to spring into action if need be as I silently prayed that this man believed me. Suddenly he broke out into a small smile.
“Well Miss,” He said as he stared me down, “I’m Nick Fury and I need to ask you to come with me.”
Before I could say anything else he turned around swiftly and called to his men to escort the Captain and me back to Shield. I let out the breath I was holding. I looked to where Edward was last standing not seeing his bronze hair or enraged face as I climbed into the SUV. I was safe as I took the seat next to the Captain and relaxed slightly.
For now at least.
Everything has been a blur and confusing since I have woken up. I acted upon my instinct and ran from the building I was held captive in and found myself in a strange new city. No, the bones were the same just that the appearance has changed drastically. In my confusion, I collided with a woman effectively making her fall backwards into the ground. Still having my manners I quickly helped up before quickly shielding her with my body when several cars with armed men had showed. I had no time to get her to safely so I kept her hidden.
Her ragged breaths told me she was in some state of distress and in the corner of my eye I saw her frantically look around like she was in sort of danger. I had little time to ponder as a man with an eye patch told me I have been asleep for seventy years. I felt dread as realization came over me. I promised a date with Peggy and now I’ve woken up seventy years later with no clue if she was alive and well.
The man stopped taking notice of me when he finally saw the girl behind me. I apparently hid her small frame well if he now was just seeing her. As he told her to leave she clenched onto my arms suddenly surprising me and causing me to wince.
Suddenly the small girl protested loudly that she was being followed. When she abruptly said it was not by humans, but by vampires when he ignored her pleas that’s when I spun my head around to look at her fully.
She was telling the truth because I looked into her eyes all I saw was fear and edginess to them. She was currently in fight or flight mode, her posture coiled to spring if she had the chance to run. She is risking herself by asking for this mans help, hoping that we will protect her. Even though her eyes shone true, I questioned if there was such a thing as vampires. Weren’t they just a myth?
The man in front of me accepted what she had to say and told her that she was coming also. I looked at the man closely and saw that he looked troubled as we climbed into the car. The girl was looking to where she ran from and easing after a short second. Who ever followed her must have been close and ran off when he saw what she was in the middle of.
I studied her closely as she looked out of the window as we travelled. She was petite, had brown hair and eyes, was unnaturally skinny, and had bags under her eyes like she hasn’t slept well in a long time. She looked lost and almost completely given up on the outside, but in her eyes there was a fire that was determined to win.
“So,” I started awkwardly, “may I ask you what your name is?”
She turned her head and gave me a soft smile, “It’s Isabella Swan, but I prefer Bella.”
“It’s nice to meet you Bella. I’m Steve Rogers.” I gave her hand to shake. She chuckled and took it.
“Oh, I know who you are Mr. Rogers,” She blushed bashfully, “It’s an honor to meet you. Also thanks for saving me back there.”
I was shocked to hear her talk like she knew of me. I coughed as a blush also rose and said, “It was no problem. Also just call me Steve, Bella.”
“Nonetheless, you saved me from running even further Steve,” She joked, “I’m not much of a runner and I was trying to escape for what seemed like an eternity when I bumped into you. Now I’m grateful for my clumsiness.”
I laughed, “Glad to be of service then.”
“No offense though, but I thought I got hit by a car at first. Those muscles of your seem very firm.” As soon as the words came out she blushed again. I stared as she quickly hid her face in her hair in embarrassment. I was about to say something else when Fury interrupted me.
“Well if you two are done flirting, we just arrived at Shield and need to debrief.” He smirked as he climbed out of the car. I followed suit, thoroughly embarrassed myself.
Well that’s the first chapter of Star Spangled Bella. Hopefully I can continue this one and if you like it just leave a review! Thanks for reading!
