see your face again

At first, there was the adrenalin pumping through him, with a cold feeling solidifying into a tight ball deep in his gut. All Steve had been able to hear was the sound of his blood rushing through his veins, his heart thundering in his chest, and the sound of his boots hitting the pavement.

Slowly, though, that began to change and the cold changed, turning into daggers of ice that stabbed into his chest as the dread settled in. He hadn't known what he might find.

It was pure chance that Natasha had managed to take out the primary control system of the drones when she did. Even with that, Steve had crushed two against the pavement with his shield before he reached Tony.

The armour was badly dented and almost completely crushed along the right side. That there wasn't any blood was of no relief to Steve; if there was any, the suit had probably contained it. The only thing that was of any comfort to him was the fact that the arc reactor was still glowing a brilliant blue-white.

He collapsed to his knees, pressing a hand to the front of the suit. Nothing.

Prying off the face mask was difficult, but not impossible. It wasn't as easy as Thor made it look, but he managed.

Tony was unconscious with a thin trickle of blood coming from the corner of his mouth. Steve's breath hitched as he spoke into his comm unit, trying to regain even a small amount of equilibrium.

“We're going to need medical ASAP.”
