"I didn't mean to fall in love with her, Steve. It just kinda happened."
What if Cap had come out of the ice a decade earlier? Had a daughter in the process? Carissa hadn't been planned, certainly, and she had been a slight burden on The Captain America. When her mom died, he found himself being her primary caregiver. It scared him, to say the least. He was glad to have Nat and Tony to help with raising her. Now he had Tony to thank whenever she delivered a smart ass comment.
Carissa Rogers didn't mean to fall for her dad's best friend, it just kinda happened. It wasn't long before Bucky starts to show an interest in the young Rogers girl. But the universe has a really colorful way of pulling them apart. Red, purple, blue, yellow green, and orange.
