Battle Scars|B.Barnes|Book 1
"Let me get this straight. You want me to babysit a one hundred year old assassin with amnesia and anger issues, just to possibly try and get him to trust the Avengers?"
"Yup, pretty much."
Lyra Stevens, A.K.A. Argent, is known by many as a hero, a figure to look up to, but she sees herself as anything but.
After spending four long years away from the Avengers and what once was SHIELD, Lyra is back, called in to help with a new...recruit.
The recruit has a similar past to Lyra.
Both manipulated, beaten, broken, and turned into something they're not. That's exactly why the Avengers asked Lyra to come back for this very special task.
Her task is:
Make the new recruit trust worthy and tame.
Simple, right? Nope. Not at all. Not when the recruit is the infamous Winter Solider, A.K.A Bucky Barnes.
At first, Lyra sees him as nothing but and uncontrollable, blood thirsty assassin, but after a while, she sees that Bucky is nothing more than a scared, broken man.
Lyra has had barriers and walls built around her for so long, but will this ex-HYDRA assassin be able to break them down?
"These Battle Scars,
Don't look like they're fading."
