A/N: So I’ve had this idea in my head for a while now, and idk I just felt the need to let it free, so please enjoy
Warnings: Cursing, disability?
It had been a few weeks since the battle of Ultron, and much to the relief of everyone in the tower things had been rather quiet on the super villain front. Of course it was still Avengers Tower and with 12 superheroes under one roof things were bound to get loud.
However, Y/N could handle loud noises. In fact she welcomed them. Since she lost her vision at a young age she relied on sound rather than sight to clue her in on the world around her. But there was one particular sound that was beginning to get on her last nerve.
“What? You didn’t see that coming?” She heard her boyfriend tease her best friend from a few rooms over.
That. That phrase was starting to become the bane of Y/N’s existence. And while she respected that it was Pietro’s “catchphrase” of sorts- it still left an ache in her chest every time she heard it.
Clint was a different story, he just laughed it off and said something along the lines of, “One day I will see it coming and when I do you’ll be in a world of hurt.”
Y/N had a special connection with Clint. Not only did he convince S.H.I.E.L.D. to give her a shot despite her physical limitations, but he also trained her himself. They had gone on almost every mission together and were almost as close as Clint was with Natasha. They would joke that he was her eyes while she was his ears. So when Y/N wasn’t there to protect Clint in the battle against Ultron she was forever indebted to one Pietro Maximoff for saving her best friend and seeing eye companion. Though Pietro swears the debt was repaid the second she agreed to their first date. And every date after that was him being indebted to her.
Which is why she never said anything about that damn phrase. It made Pietro happy. While she could never actually see the smile on his face Y/N could hear the happy smirk in his voice whenever he got to say it. So she suffered in silence as day-in and day-out her Sokovian boyfriend sassed the rest of the Avengers on their “poor eyesight”.
Y/N was shocked out of her thoughts as a pair of lips pressed softly to her cheek. She had let out a small squeal of surprise which caused a booming laugh to erupt from her two favorite guys in the whole world. The longer they laughed the more upset Y/N got. It wasn’t her fault they came in when she was zoned out and it’s not like she had Clint to tell her who came in!
“Printsessa?” Pietro managed to get out between chuckles, “You did not see that coming?” The room became silent immediately as Pietro realized what he had said. “Wait! Y/N I did not-”
“Why no, I didn’t see that coming.” Honestly it wouldn’t have been so bad had it not been for the fact that he had tried to apologize. Sure he thought he was doing the right thing, but Y/N wanted to feel like everyone else. She was sick of being handled with kid gloves. “You know why Pietro?! Because I’m fucking blind! I’m so damn sick of your fucking catchphrase! And honestly I’m mostly sick because you never say it to me! Yeah it wouldn’t be totally PC but damn am I so freakishly different that you have to censor yourself around me?”
Her rant over, Y/N stormed from the room hoping she didn’t run into anything. Thankfully she got to her and Pietro’s shared bedroom without incident and flopped onto the bed sobbing. Ok so maybe she was overreacting, but damn she was an Avenger and being the only one left out of an inside joke kind of hurt.
A soft knock came on the door a few minutes later. Y/N had since stopped crying and was simply laying on the bed trying to keep her breaths steady.
“Printsessa?” Pietro’s soft voice sounded guilty and heartbroken.
“May I come in?”
“Well yeah,” Y/N answered a small smile tugging at her lips. Man her boyfriend was such a dork sometimes.
In a flash Pietro was sitting beside Y/N, his hang ghosting up and down her back in soothing patterns. “I am truly sorry printsessa. I never meant to make you feel left out and I would understand if you wanted to call things off and-”
“Pietro you goofball,” Y/N snorted, sitting up to face the speedster. “I would never want to end things with you. And I accept your apology. Just stop trying to act different around me ok? I love you for all that you are, stupid catchphrase and all.”
Y/N reached out and wrapped her arms around Pietro’s shoulders as he sat there stiff. “Did you-? Wait. You-? You love me?”
Y/N pulled back with a giggle. “What? You didn’t see that coming?”
Wow that was bad haha! I’ll also take requests if anyone wants something?
