Capitol Hill Nursing Center - 15:55 p.m - Peggy’s Room

Steve stopped beside the elderly woman’s bed, sliding down into the chair beside it that he always sat in during his visits over the last several months since discovering that she was still alive and where she was located.

Her room was decorated like the inside of a christmas catalogue with the multi-coloured twinkle lights, decorations and the real christmas tree by the large window that was covered in personal ornaments and lights with a handmade angel on top. Her family obviously loved her and wanted her to be surround by christmas even if she couldn’t be at home with them. It was four days until christmas. This would be the first christmas that he would spend without Bucky. The only family that he had left. Steve knew that he wouldn’t have to spend Christmas alone since Milly had invited him to her house to be with her family. She had informed him that it had been Maria’s idea, but he never asked her about it.

Steve turned his eyes towards the elderly woman in her mid nineties that seemed in a daze. “Hey Peggy,” he smiled at her, masking the sadness he felt. He hoped that she was having a good day.

“Steve, you’re alive,” she voiced, tiredly with tears brimming her eyes. “You came back.”

Steve felt a lump form him his throat. This wasn’t the first time he had heard those words since her memory was deteriorating. “Yeah Peggy,” he managed, thickly. “Well, I couldn’t leave my best girl when she owes me a dance,” he told with a sad smile.

You’re lucky. You’ve fallen in love with your best friend. The person who accepts you at your worst. The person who laughs at your stupid jokes. The person who knows you better than you know yourself. I would kill to spend the rest of my life with that person.
