AS EVERYONE MADE their way out of the theater, Crystal and Rose pushed their way backstage trying not to get caught.
"We're some slick bitches, aren't we?" Rose said and Crystal chuckled.
"Be careful, Steve will hear you and he will end you with his 'watch your language' stuff." Crystal joked and a small laughter escaped her lips. Her emerald green eyes caught Steve talking to some man.
Once the man left without hesitation Crystal attacked Steve into a hug. Steve was confused at who was hugging him but once he recognized the sweet smell of vanilla and strawberries he knew it had to be his brunette friend.
"Crystal?" He asked for confirmation but his voice was wrapped in confusion, Crystal nodded answering his question not leaving their hug, Steve finally wrapped his arms around the now shorter girl. He was a bit uptight at first but soon warmed up to the hug.
"How did you find me?" Steve questioned once they pulled away from their hug.
"I had a bit of help." Crystal replied with a small smirk playing on her lips while pointing back at Bucky's sister from behind him.
"Rose?" Steve questioned and she nodded giving him a smile. "I didn't know you two knew each other."
"Well we didn't until like two days ago." Rose said and Crystal chuckled.
"Yeah, the Barnes really do have a thing for scaring me on the streets." Crystal joked about that time when Bucky had startled her on an empty street in Brooklyn.
"Steve, what happened to you that you became Captain America?" Rose asked the million dollar question.
Steve started becoming more nervous. "I- I um, I got injected with something by Doctor Abraham Erskine—"
"And boom you became super hot." Rose said and Crystal shot her a playful glare.
"I guess so." Steve said shyly and Crystal smiled at him.
"So this is what you're doing right now? Going on tour, entertaining people?" Crystal questioned and Steve nodded. "You don't like it. I can see it in your eyes."
Steve sighed. "I don't." He admitted and the brunette send him a sympathetic look.
"I'm coming on tour with you." Crystal stated and Steve furrowed his brows. "I anyways don't have anything better to do, plus I wanna be there to encourage my best friend. Even, Rose can come if she wants."
"I will pass on this one." Rose said and Crystal frowned. "Somebody's gotta take care of the little ones." She spoke of the rest of her siblings.
Crystal nodded understanding her situation, if she had siblings she would've put them before anyone else.
Rose sighed. "Well I better get going. Gotta go check with the other two."
Crystal nodded and went over to give her new best friend a hug. "I'll miss you."
"I will miss you too and we will see each other again, and that's a promise." Rose said and Crystal hugged her tighter.
"If he comes back—" Crystal started but Rose cut her off.
"I will write you to inform you if he comes back." Rose said and Crystal sighed but still thanked the girl.
"Goodbye, Ro." Crystal said sweetly and Rose scrunched her nose.
"I don't like saying goodbye, so this is a see you later." Rose said and Crystal chuckled and with that the raven haired girl left leaving Steve and Crystal together.
"So, when are we—" Crystal started but an intense pain in her head stopped her, she winced in painful . The pain was worse than anything she had ever felt before.
Steve immediately started to worry about his best friend and he tried calling her name but it seemed like she was in some kind of a trance.
Crystal could feel like somebody was trying to whisper something to her, it was like someone was calling out to her.
"The first kill will start the curse." The voices in Crystal's head said and she opened her eyes. Her breathing was heavy, and she had started to sweat.
"Are you okay?" Steve asked, worry was swimming in his blue eyes and in this moment he had felt the most helpless in his whole life. Seeing his best friend in pain was something he wanted to help her with but he couldn't stop it. Saying he was feeling guilty about it would be an understatement.
"Yeah, I'm fine." Crystal lied and Steve knew that but made the decision of not pressuring her into talking when she doesn't want to, she will tell him when the time comes he thought.
"Steve," Crystal tried to gain the boy's attention.
"Yeah?" Steve quickly replied but looked at the girl who had tears burning up in her eyes.
"I miss him." Crystal said but it came out more as a whisper like it was a huge secret.
"I know. I miss him too." Steve said and he wrapped the arms around his childhood best friend, comforting her.
Crystal didn't know what was happening to her, she didn't know what the whispers said, she thought she was going crazy, but she was happy she had Steve by her side to help her out.
But the pain of missing Bucky was worse than the huge headache she had earlier, she felt as if she was going underwater and she was drowning with no escape.
