She knew why she had returned. It was a place that Heimdall couldn’t see, she had made sure of that a thousand years before, and now it was tainted...

She had a feeling he had followed her. He hadn’t really left her alone since they had run into each other in the small town This side of the Canadian American border. Stepping up to the door she touched it lightly closing her eyes hacking the security systems. The doors opened and she stepped inside, working through the wreckage, past the labs where most the work was done. Finding her way to the control room of the facility she froze, her eyes on the door, but her feet wouldn’t move. She knew what she’d find in there... After all it was where she had been kept, forced to feed them information that they wanted for a decade if not more.

She needed to destroy the data banks if anyone could hack into them...

“My job,” She still didn’t move closer, her head hurt...

She knew she had to get in there, but the thought of it was making her have a panic attack. Valkarie weren’t supposed to panic!

Bucky had followed her. How could he not? The facility looked all to familiar to him. There's no way it could be the same place but some memories starting to flash back. Bucky had to force them to the back his mind for the time being. It's the most he could do at this point in time.

"Thought you'd do with without me?" His voice was a little muffled from under his mask but he was there. Ignoring her and heading straight for the sealed front doors.

"You go, I go." Bucky ignored her and reached for door. It had been sealed shut for long even the dirt looked like it was sealing this door shut. Still it was no match for his enhanced strength.

Pulling the door with all his strength it creaked and managed to open just enough for the two of them to slip inside. "How many years has this place been closed?"

Maybe it was a cover up and in the inside was as active as one of the Hydra or SHIELD bases.

He bit his tongue after hearing the little mutter about Steve. Bucky knew she wasn't anything like him but he was only trying to help. Shame he was quick to temper these days. Thankfully it powered him to nearly rip the door off and split it open further.

"Then what are you waiting for?" Not waiting for a response but simply walking into the facility. Barnes felt he should have reconized it. There was something all to familiar but he couldn't place it. Not with his memories being the way they are. Everything was still filtering back slowly, piece by piece.

Inside the lights automatically powered up as soon as a presence was detected. Simply spot lights like an old world war base came on one by one above them complete with the sound of an old fashion generator kicking into gear. There was always something eerie about a base being completely empty. If Barnes could remember a sense of fear his instincts would have told him to not go any further. Unfortunately that was kicked out of him over eighty years ago.

"Do you sense anything?"

Bucky noticed the cameras following them but ignored them. Whatever it was couldn't be that bad or they wouldn't have gone in to start with. That being said there was a loud slam behind them and the entrance was slammed shit.

They weren't alone alright.

"Keep talking..." Over the course of a few weeks Barnes had had this repeated dream from 1943. It was something he didn't share but it was on his mind so he told her about it, continuing to keep the noise and help her calm herself.
Barnes didn't need to be a rocket scientist to see she didn't want to be here.

"I remember, I'd just been sent home. Had two weeks to myself. To see Steve, friends, family. What family I had left. All the guys were home from the war and looking to dance with the most beautiful dame they could find. Luck for me New York was full of them and I never had a trouble getting dates. I even had a few double dates set up for Steve and I."

Barnes kept going. Each time he thought of it the memory was becoming clearer and clearer. At it was conformation it wasn't some crazy dream. "But out of all the dames back then there was only one I wanted. Her name was Peggy. You'd look at her and those eyes would stop you dead in your tracks. What was better was she was an officer and helped train us all when we got to the camp. Every guy wanted to know her."

"I saved up every cent I had just to ask her for a dance. There was a bar favoured by the soldiers back then. Women would come down looking for dates or to be wed off."

His eyes still watching the facility as they walked. "I wanted to marry her but I never got her to dance with me. I found out she had eyes for Steve."

Pushing him back wasn't going to work. Barnes pushed himself head of her and looked around. "What is it? What do you sense?"

Automatically his hand went for that custom gun of his that was always strapped to his side. In the past she had always told him not to kill but perhaps this time there could be an exception.

Barnes had never seen technology like this before but then again he was kept away from half the stuff Hydra was capable of.

When the coil wrapped around her he tried to keep hold but the force was too strong. It dragged away and he was left with no choice but to blast out the computers. The gun shots echoed down the rooms and corridors of the creepy old base. It almost felt like the walls and computers were alive and in a world of their own.

The bullets tore through the machine enough for him to grab her and rip her out that chair. "What was that? Explain what's happening?" Suddenly Barnes started to recognize little bits of machinery here and there.

Barnes didn't like this one it. He struggled to be able to accept anything coming at her let alone hurting her.

Moving over to the machinery he touched the lifeless cords that had grabbed her and pulled her in. Like vines they twisted around his fingers and twitched with the remainder of life they had left.

It was once thing they went after her but it seemed with the only option of Private Barnes left, what better way to get old of her than sending him to get her. "What's happening?"

They twisted around his arm. Crawling up like a plant twisting up and through to his skin. No cables were a match for his arm but as soon as they reached the skin they dug their way into his flesh and dragged him over to the console.

He would have shouted for her had he had of been able to speak but as soon as his mouth was open several spare bits of what appeared to be lifeless cable shot down his throat in an attempt to shut him up.

Between the mix of blood that was now dripping on the floor and a lifeless Bucky now strapped beyond removal in the chair. It wouldn't surprise him she thought he was dead.

As if the computer was alive with a mind of it's own, it buried electrical chips all through his skin.

"Why have you returned?" Barnes voice was barely like his own. He couldn't even move.

The computer, plant, vines of cables, didn't answer. Instead Bucky got up out the chair like he was learning to walk for the first time. Some of the cables fell swag leaving the blood and marks in the skin. Whatever it was happening he fought against it so much that he almost winced in pain.

"Run." Was the only thing he managed to say before ripping a chunk off the side of a nearby terminal and throwing it towards her.

Like a rat caught in a maze, Barnes followed her unable to control his actions. He ripped apart doors and dented walls, searching for any place he thought she was hiding. With every corridor he walked down the lights came on of their own accord like he was the thing bringing the electricity to the building. Of course Barnes wasn’t. It was the computer which was no doubt hiding technology that the world wasn’t ready for at present.

He stood in front of a large well built metal door and started to punch his way into it. The dents echoed through the corridor to the point whatever was on the otherside was starting to rattle. Banes was convinced she was trapped in there. In the end it didn’t matter. There or not the EMP wave shot so strongly through him that Bucky collapsed on the floor and twitched with electrical pain.

“Glitch!” He shouted, letting her know he was able to break through this computers hold on him. Whatever she had done was worth it. The computer had shut down to the point the cables fell out of his skin along with several computer chips. “Glitch are you there?”

"You know I can't and won't leave you but we are done here." Barnes fought off the amount of pain the cables had left him with. He staggered a little but braced himself when she came to his side.

Whatever this place was or whatever happened here Barnes knew it wasn't worth it. "I'm getting us out of here before anything else happens Glitch."

"Glitch you are more trouble than you're worth but no I'm not leaving you so if we do this we do it together." It was bad that she got under his skin so much. No one had to the point he'd actively seek out to protect them. It simply was a connection he could not break but honored at the same time.

If Barnes was honest with himself it was his care for her that made him still feel a part human. Glitch held him together and made him forget all the bad he'd done over the last eighty years of ice.

"The power cables to this place are up the top of the walls. I recognize this set up from a long time ago. It's your basic operation. If we follow them it should take us to the main core."

He stood all the time by her side with his senses tuned in to anything that looks as if it would move. Anything with electrics in it looked like an enemy to him at this point.

"If you show me what you need taken care of I will destroy it for you and save you using your magic." Barnes still didn't understand her magic or anything where she was from but he went with it. She had proven her self to him more than enough times.

As they continued to walk he noticed one of the monitors was flicking. On the screen were blue prints showing the various sub levels and zones of the facility. "Can you find the room you need on here?"

There was something about this situation that Bucky didn't like. It reminded him of something, something familiar but something so far out of his memory he didn't think it was possible to ever remember it.

Sometimes Barnes would suffer with headaches. They were brought on from the mind wipe and the intense pressure that followed finding out who he was. There's nothing worse than being told your life without knowing or remembering one second of it. This was something talking to Glitch, she could only understand.

"There is nothing about me that is conventional." He flexed and looked down at the metal arm that glinted between the torn bits of jacket he owned. Sometimes he was proud of his abilities but other times he was ashamed of what happened. It was a fifty fifty flip on emotions, much like everything else.

When Glitch had finished using the computer Barnes stayed close to her side and walked her though the old part of the facility and towards the new. It was eerie at first. The rooms were covered in dust and left in a way you had thought someone was still living there. Research seemed to have halted half way through it's operations and mugs were left on the desks.

It was a ghost town. A familiar but changed world that gave you shivers down your spine.

"I don't like it here. Something isn't right." And that wasn't coming from the fact a computer tried to attack him and Barnes was still bleeding from the holes the cables had dug into his flesh.

"As soon as you have finished we are getting out straight away."

No sooner had those words been spoken when a shadow moved down the end of one of the corridors. It seemingly was moving in the direction they were heading. Possibly leading or possibly warning.

Perhaps Barnes was finally seeing things.
