It's little things, mostly, that give people away: the makeup, the fit of the men's uniforms, even people's posture. The women aren't wearing girdles under their dresses, most of them, so they don't hold their shoulders back and their spines straight the way they ought to.

Just like Bucky used to do, Steve thinks, and the old ache that will never really go away flares once more in his chest. This time, at least, it's not sharp and cold. It's more like pressing on a bruise than breaking a bone.

[Some nights, Steve still has trouble breathing.][overuse of "old man", otherwise very sweet and wonderful.]
