imagine bucky finding new clothes to cover up his metal arm so people will stop looking at him like he’s a freak and trying to scratch the red star off with his knife because hydra doesn’t fucking own him anymore and then he finds some money (nothing much, just a crumpled twenty he picked up off the sidewalk) and he uses it to buy some paint (just a bit, just three little tubes) and he paints a shield over the scratched off red star

Imagine a little girl walking up to him while he’s sitting on a park bench and handing him a flower and when he takes it she laughs and skips away waving at him and that is so important to him because someone acknowledged him.
