When I first started out doing pixel art I couldn’t find a good tutorial on how to make trees. So now that I’m a bit better, I’ve decided to make my own!
For this tutorial, you’ll need some sort of digital art program. You probably shouldn’t be looking at digital art tutorials if you don’t have a digital art program. I use Pro Motion, but I’m pretty sure that Gimp and Photoshop work too.
For space-saving reasons, I’ll put the rest beneath the read more
The mission was a simple one. Infiltrate the charity banquet, find the plans for the weapon that Hydra was building and then haul ass out.
The charity banquet was being thrown by Xander Scott, elected politician in the area. He was suspected to be in cahoots with Hydra. Just what you needed, more corrupt government officials. Like there weren’t enough of them already.
You and Sam were dancing in the middle of the large ballroom. Xander Scott owned the hotel, so it was safe to assume that he had an office there. The two of you were dressed to the nines to fit in with all of the ridiculously rich people around you. Steve, Natasha and Wanda were at another location close by just in case things got out of hand. It would’ve been too suspicious for you all to be there.
You looked over Sam’s shoulder and saw Bucky standing at the bar. He gave you a small nod and then disappeared.
“I’m going to run to the ladies room, sweetheart.” You said to Sam playing along with the charade that the two of you were a couple.
“I’ll be waiting.” He winked before you went in the same direction that Bucky had gone.
“Okay guys. Let’s get in and out without a fuss.” Steve said in your earpiece.
“It’s the two knuckleheads and (Y/n). I’m praying there will be minimum fuss.” Natasha joked.
“To their defense, the knuckleheads have managed to act civilized 90% of the time.” You added as you walked right past the woman’s restrooms. Making sure that no one was watching you, you took a left and walked down a hallway that you were sure you weren’t supposed to be in. The heels you were wearing wasn’t making it easier for you to be stealthy.
“Bucky, are you in position?” Steve questioned.
“I’m here. Waiting for (Y/n).”
You walked towards the door that you knew was Xander’s office. Bucky was there waiting for you inside. You closed the door behind you.
“I didn’t get followed but that doesn’t mean we have all day.” You said to him as you started to search the office alongside him.
“I’ve looked in the obvious places. There’s nothing here.”
You quickly tried to get into the mindset of the crook. Scanning along the walls, you tried to find something that was out of the ordinary. There was a giant bookshelf that was on the opposite wall of the door.
“Something about these books seem a little…” you tried to move one of the books and saw that they were fake. All of them on the middle shelf were connected together making a long row. You pulled them down and the bookshelf opened right in the middle leading down a dark hallway.
“I’m getting some major Batman vibes right now.”
You froze and turned to look at Bucky, “What?”
“What’s Batman?” He repeated, “Is that like a friend of yours or something? I don’t know who that is.”
“What do you mean you don’t know who Batman is?”
“Guys!” Steve shouted in your earpieces, “are you seriously having this conversation right now?”
“Sorry.” You and Bucky said at the same time. You grabbed the gun that you had in your thigh holster and went down the hallway first. Bucky walked closely behind you.
The hallway lead to a small room. There weren’t any windows or anything hanging on the walls. There was barely any light. The only table in the room was stacked with papers.
You and Bucky dug around until you found the blueprints. Bucky stuck them on the inside of his coat pocket before the two of you left the creepy room.
“You guys are in the clear. Just get out of there safely.” Natasha said to you as you walked back into the office.
The two of you pushed the bookshelf back together before making sure you didn’t leave anything out of place. Bucky walked out of the office first and you closed the door behind you.
Just as the two of you were going to round the corner of the hallway that lead back to the party, you heard footsteps. The sound stopped you in your tracks.
“You’ve got company headed your way.” Steve warned you and Bucky.
You knew that you only had a short amount of time to do something.
“Kiss me.” You said to Bucky.
Shocked at what you ordered him to do, he froze in place. “What?”
“Public displays of affection make people uncomfortable. Kiss me now!”
Bucky faltered for a split second before grabbing you by your waist and pulling you closer to him. His lips were on yours before you could tell him to kiss you.
Maybe the thought of you kissing Bucky crossed your mind a time or two. You would admit that it had. Bucky was the most attractive man that you had ever laid eyes on.
It was easy to get a little lost in the heat of the moment. Bucky completely forgot that he was in the middle of a mission the moment his lips touched yours. He had been wanting to kiss you for quite some time and now seemed like the perfect moment.
The two of you came up for air and saw someone standing nearby. He looked like he was one of Xander’s guys. You braced yourself for a fight.
“No guests are allowed back here.”
Bucky chuckled a little, keeping his hold on you for show, “Sorry, I just needed a moment alone with my beautiful wife.”
“He hasn’t been able to keep his hands off of me all night.” You joked.
The man smiled dryly, “Let me escort you back to the party.”
You both followed the guy back to the ballroom were everyone was dancing. Discretely checking behind your shoulder, you saw that the guy left once he made sure you and Bucky were where you were supposed of be.
“Sam is waiting outside for you guys.” Steve said in your ear.
Bucky grabbed your hand and lead you outside. Once made it out safely, you felt a weight lifted off your shoulders. You and the knuckleheads actually did it without a ruckus.
“What are you doing holding hands with my wife?” Sam joked when you and Bucky approached him.
“After that kiss, I think that she prefers my company. Don’t you, baby?” Bucky winked at you making your heart skip a beat.
You decided to mess with him a little. “Bucky, don’t flatter yourself. I would’ve kissed Vision if he were there instead of you.”
“Damn! She told you.” Sam joked as the three of you got into the car that was waiting for you.
Bucky hit Sam before sliding in after you. He was quiet for most of the trip back to the Tower. Sam, who was sitting in the passenger seat, was too busy on his phone and talking to the driver to notice.
You decided to be a little bold and move closer to Bucky. He looked at you when he noticed that you moved towards him.
“Just so you know, I wouldn’t have kissed just anyone back there. You’re special, Barnes.” You whispered in his ear.
He smirked, “So, what you’re saying is that you like me better than everyone else.”
You smiled, “I guess that’s what I’m saying.”
Bucky leaned even closer and kissed your cheek softly. “I like you more than anyone else too.”
Kai Parker x Reader word count: 4 561 warning : smut summary : Reader feels insecure because of all the supernatural girls throwing themselves at Kai and she doesn’t feel like she is good enough. * not my gif keep reading after the cut😈 ______________________
Almost a year since Y/N and Kai had started dating and every day felt like the first. They loved , supported and cared for each other more than any of them would care to admit. Their life together was perfect , well as perfect as life in Mystic Falls could be with all the supernaturals. There hadn’t been any threats lately , so from that side things were calm but from the other - word had spread about Kai being the all powerful leader of the Gemini coven (even tho most of them were dead) vampire witch hybrid. A lot of vampires and witches even werewolfs rolled into town to meet him and every single girl of them threw herself onto him. They’d giggle around him , laugh at his jokes even when they weren’t funny , feeling his musles , buying him drinks… Y/N knew he loved her and she had seen multiple times how he turns the girls down because of her , but the more that happened the more Y/N felt like she wasn’t good enough for him. Like she was holding him back from the life that he could have with a supernatural girlfriend. Being human felt amazing but the past few months it felt more like a burden. They had talked about her turning into a vampire but he kept insisting on her staying human , at least for the time being. Y/N knew it wasn’t because he didn’t want her to be one , he just wanted her to have a full human life , for as long as possible before their eternity together begins. Only until that happened , there was a lot of time and he could change his mind about being with her… and that only fueled her insecurity about not being enough.
Y/N sat with Elena at the sofa at the Salvatore’s , the music muffling most of her words. It was a party for Stefan’s birthday and of course over the years , he had made a lot of vampire acquaintances all of which were at the party. The guys were fine , the girls … they were too busy hitting on Kai the entire night , not even remotely frazzled by the fact he had a girlfriend who was sitting right there. Her eyes followed Kai across the room as he went to get them drinks. Every girl on his way turned after him , looking at him with desire. Every one of them threw themselves on him but he kept rejecting them. Kai only had eyes for his girl.
Y/N could see Kai through the crowd talking to some girl near the keg. She kept batting her eyelashes at him and feeling his musles. Y/N could see it all across the room - she was a vampire , not the first one to hit on Kai the past few hours either. Y/N couldn’t blame them. Kai was absolutely irresistable , with his perfect chizzled jaw , those sexy blue eyes …
“He loves you Y/N.” said Elena snapping her back from her thoughts. “I never thought I’d be defending him of all people… but that much I know. It’s in his eyes every time he is around you and even when he is not. He wouldn’t cheat on you.”
“I know… its just …” she sighed. “I’m human. He is a vampire.”
“Trust me , I get it.” said Elena. “I’ve been where you are… ”
Y/N dropped her head in her hands.
“I don’t think you do. I feel like I am holding him back.”
“You are not holding him back.” said Elena , rubbing her back. “If anything , you are doing the opposite. He was a completely different person before meeting you.”
“But I am holding him back Elena!” she raised her voice a little. “He can’t be himself with me , not completely anyways. I can’t give him what they can. I’m not .. I’m not good enough for him. Arhh , being a human sucks…”
Elena started to say something but quickly stopped herself noticing Kai coming over. He was vampire now and probably had already heard their conversation but she didn’t want to risk her friend getting into an awkward situation right in the middle of the party. Kai reached them in a few steps , swiftly avoiding all the people dancing and ignoring every single girl who tried to pull him towards her. Elena glanced at him then at Y/N and a moment later got pulled away by Damon.
“Here you go ..” he said passing Y/N a red plastic cup. He sat next to her and putting his arm over her shoulder.
“Thanks.” mumbled Y/N taking a sip. Her eyes drifted across the room noticing how pretty much all girl’s eyes were on him. There it was again - that feeling.
“I love you.” whispered Kai in her ear , snaking his hands around her waist and pulling her onto his lap until she was sitting sideways on it. Kai rested his head on the crook of her neck , placing gentle kisses on it. One of his hands slid up her hip towards her stomach , making her cheeks flush when he stopped at her lower stomach. He smiled at her , noticing the sudden change in her heart beat. “Do you want to go home ?”
“Mhmm…” she hummed , starting to lose focus thinking how close his hands are too close to her core. Y/N got up reaching her hand for Kai. He intertwined their fingers together and both of them walked outside. His eyes were on her the entire time , seeing only her and no one else. They walked to his car , only Kai didn’t open the doors. Instead he pinned her against the car door , drowning her in a deep passionate kiss.
“I want to show you something.” he whispered.
“How much wine did YOU just had?”
“Let’s dance, right now.”
Celebrations in Kattegat were not uncommon, but this certain celebration seemed to be more lively than the others. Ale and wine were continuously passed around; laughter and sounds of dancing filled the room as I searched for my soon to be husband. Seeing a familiar face I drunkenly stumbled over.
“Ubbe!” I giggled, “Where is Hvitserk?”
“How much wine have you had, (Y/N)” Ubbe chuckled.
“How much wine did YOU just had?” I raised my eyebrows.
A pair of strong arms wrapped around my middle,“I surely hope I just heard that right,” Hvitserk chuckled in my ear.
“HUSBAND!” I yelled turning and throwing my arms around him in an embrace. He chuckled and slightly lifted me off my feet.
My eyes lit up as I took his hands in mine, “Let’s go dance, right now.”
“If you wish to my love,” he smiled. I grabbed his hands and rushed to the dance floor. He spun me and we twirled until we were one of the few people left in the hall. My drunken high had began to ware off and my feet had began to ache.
Hvitserk pulled me to his chest,“Let’s go home, min skjønnhet.”
(I hope everyone liked it! Feed back is always welcome and request are open!)
Kai Parker x Reader word count : 5 959 warning : smut summary : based on the song ‘24/7′ by David Correy | Kai is staying at Reader’s grandparents’ house for the summer, along with her cousins.

2.17AM - 3 Days After Kai’s Arrival
Y/N sat on the window in the small bedroom she and her cousin got to share for the summer. Moonlight seeped through the window along with a cooler night breeze as she opened her diary, tucked away safely a picture of her and Kai between the pages and began writing. Writing everything always helped her clear her head, though this time – it seemed quite impossible.
Summer is only beginning and I have no idea how I will make it through the next two months with the guy I am in love with sleeping down the hall and my cousin, who is also in love with him, sleeping five steps away from me. Every time I close my eyes I am back in that hot August day last year, laying on the old tree stump with Kai by my side. I remember it as if it was yesterday, how he cupped my face with one hand and leaned in towards me. How our lips met for the first time and butterflies flapped their wings in my stomach.How his soft lips touched mine lightly at first and then he had put his arms around me holding me towards him. I remember his blue eyes piercing into mine and everything had felt perfect, but then he had to leave and none of us ever spoke about it. However I know he rememberes. It’s in his eyes every time we look at each other. I kept my distance today and saw it hurt him but what else was I supposed to do when Amy rushed out of the house to welcome him, jumping into his arms like I wanted to. And now I am losing sleep because I can’t stop thinking about him. How his eyes lit up when he saw me, the way he smiled from ear to ear and those dimples. How every time he says my name butterflies flap their wings in my stomach , how my skin turns on fire at his slightest touch. He uses every chance he gets to wrap his hands around me and even though Amy pays so much attention to him, it appears he just wants to spend his time only with me. Which is only making it harder to keep my distance because that’s what I want too. To be with him 24/7, 365 days a year. Whenever I fall asleep, that’s exactly where my dreams lead me. To his arms. Right where I want to be but I guess the Universe decided it would be more entertaining to make both me and my cousin fall in love with the same guy. Probably a way to punish me for being what I am.
Y/N tapped the page with the pen and scratched the second half of the sentence to a complete blank so no one could read it and she continued writing.
I just wish he’d tell me if he feels something about me. If he does maybe I won’t feel guilty about wanting what I want.
* * *
Kai laid awake in bed thinking … about her. He wanted to see her, to wrap his arms around her and never let her go. There weren’t many people he connected with or cared about or even felt something towards but with his Y/N, things were different. They had this almost instant connection and he knew what they had is special, he knew that much and wasn’t willing to let go of it. Even if it seemed like she doesn’t want to see him anymore and acts all shy around him all of the sudden. A sigh left his lips and he got up, quietly making his way out of his bedroom and two doors down to her room. He’d definitely get in trouble for sneaking into the girls’ room in the middle of the night if he gets caught, but he didn’t care. Every fiber in his body was pulling him towards her and he needed to see her, maybe wake her up and confront her because he knew for some reason she is acting like she doesn’t like him anymore. And he knew that wasn’t true. His hand hovered over the doorknob for a few long moments before he heard movements from the inside and he quickly disappeared into the shadows. A moment later the door opened and Y/N walked outside, in her PJs and barefoot as usual. She ran her fingers through her hair and closed the door quietly before heading down the stairs. Kai didn’t even have to think twice about following her to the living room and into the kitchen. He watched her open the fridge, slightly bending over to get the lemonade from one of the lower shelves and then grab a glass from the cupboard. “Can’t sleep?” said Kai, almost making her jump up. “It’s understandable. I know you don’t like sleeping alone in your bed. You are welcome to share mine , I won’t mind.” “So full of yourself.” she said trying to walk past him but each time he blocked her way. “You are avoiding me.” he stated. “Why ?” “Not avoiding you, just want to go back to sleep.” “You are such a bad liar.” he said, a smile tugging a the corners of his mouth. “You weren’t sleeping. Your eyes are wide open and you have never been more awake in your entire life. Why are you avoiding me? Have I done something to get you upset with me ?” “Kai –” “Don’t Kai me.” he slowly backed her against the kitchen counter, placing both his hands on either side of her to keep her from running away. “Why do you act so weird around me? All shy as if you don’t want to see me. Last year when I got here you could barely wait for my father’s car to disappear from view to jump into my arms. This year you barely even looked at me.” Y/N left her glass behind her while trying not to think how his body pressed so firmly against hers and she could feel his heart racing. She refused to meet his eyes for more than a second while trying to figure out something to say and her mind went on a full overload when he placed his hands on her waist lightly brushing his fingers against her bare skin, the feeling coursing trough her body like an electric shock wave. “Come on Y/N. I know you like me.” he said resting his forehead on hers. “And I know you remember – last summer when we were at the tree stump in the woods and I leaned in –” his lips almost touching hers as he spoke. “– and kissed you.” “I don’t know what you are talking about.” she replied, her eyes darting between his eyes and his lips. “You are lying.” he smirked seeing her nose crinkle again, just like every time she lied. “I can prove it.” He gazed into her eyes and his lips crashed against hers, sending a dozen butterflies in her stomach. The feeling spread through her body like a tsunami and he pulled her so close to him she could feel their hearts beating as one. For a moment she let go and tangled her fingers in his hair then pushed him away, placing her hand on his chest holding him an arms length away. “Y-you can’t do that.” she pushed him off her and almost ran upstairs, trying to calm her breathing and heart rate. A smile tugged at the corners of her mouth still feeling the lingering feeling of his lips on hers. He had kissed her. What did that mean ? She made her way to the second floor when Kai grabbed her wrist, spun her around and his lips crashed against hers again. He backed her against the wall pressing his body firmly onto hers and pinned her hands over her head so she couldn’t push him off again. ”Stop lying to me and stop lying to yourself. There is something between us and you know it.” he said breathing a little heavily, resting his forehead on hers while snaking his hand around her waist pulling her towards him. “Don’t deny it. Your kiss already gave you away.” “I told y-you – I don’t like you this way.” she wiggled her hands free and pushed him off her, taking a step down the hall. Barely a second later he grabbed her wrist again, spin her around and smashed his lips against hers pulling her towards him. For a moment Y/N pulled him close too and then pushed him off again but he wouldn’t give up and pulled her back for another kiss leaving her completely breathless. “Sure you don’t. That’s why your heart is trying to leap out of your chest and your cheeks are flushed. That’s why you returned the kiss all four times and that’s why you are looking at me with those googly eyes right now. Makes total sense.” Y/N opened and closed her mouth trying to find any words to say to him, scrambling for any will power to push him off. Instead, she allowed him to shove her against the wall again, leaning in to whisper in her ear. “I want you and I know you want me.” he whispered, pushing his crotch against hers. “You know what else I want? I want to rip your clothes right in the middle of this hallway and have my way with you until the sun comes up.” Y/N opened a closed her mouth feeling her skin turn on fire at his words, Kai’s hot breath hitting her face intoxicated her and clouded her mind completely. He pinned her hands over her head and brushed his fingertips against her hip all the way up her body without taking his eyes off her for a second. Her eyes fluttered closed for a second and her back arched off the wall towards him and he pushed his crotch against hers again. “Kai , l …Let me g-go.” she stuttered not willing to look him in the eyes knowing the second she does she wouldn’t be able to push him off again. “Please –” Why did things have to be so complicated, why couldn’t she just – let go and be with him like she wanted? He wanted her just as much as she wanted him and if there was no one in the house, they probably would’ve ripped each other’s clothes by now. But if couldn’t happen, not with her cousin sleeping a door away and her grandparents being down the hall. “Only because you said ‘please.” he brushed his nose against hers for a second and took a step away from her. Y/N studied his face for a moment and quickly made her way to her bedroom. Her shaky hand hovered over the doorknob for a few long moments before she felt Kai’s breath on her neck, whispering in her ear. “I wish I could take you with me in my room –” he brushed his fingers against her inner thighs all the way up to her heat. “ – and spend the rest of night and every night after that with you.”

A/N: I know I’ve been gone for a while and I apologize. I’ve had some personal things that I had to deal with and now I’m back, hoping writing will help put me a bit more at ease. Hope you’re all doing well. My writing is a bit rusty so bear with me. 😚
Neither Y/N or Peter remember falling asleep during their Thundercats marathon but they did. Peter didn’t even remember the shift of positions on the couch that had him sprawled out, one leg laid across the length of the couch and the other propped up on the small coffee table that sat in front of the couch. His head was nestled comfortably on a decorative pillow that was propped up on the arm of the couch.
He only remembered waking up to the soft blue glow of the TV and tiny Groot looking him right in the eye. Seeing Groot so suddenly made him give a slight jolt in shock and surprise. “Come on, man! I hate it when you do that.” Peter scolded Groot in a soft voice but only earned a soft smack on the cheek from Groot who then placed a finger over Peter’s lips in an attempt to shush him.
“I am Groot.” Groot returned the scolding in a small whisper before pointing down beside Peter.
Peter arched a brow and that’s when he felt it, a slight stirring at his side. His eyes shot down to see Y/N laid up against him, snugly wedged between himself and the couch. Her head was resting on his chest right over his heart and her fingers were curled up lightly into the fabric of his shirt. He watched as she snuggled herself down deeper into his side, one of her legs moving up to drape over his as her cheek nuzzled into his chest. Her actions making his arm wrap lightly around her chilled shoulders. Knowing she had to be cold, Peter pulled his jacket from the back of the couch and very carefully placed it over her exposed shoulders.
“Well, I’ll be damned.” Peter snorted very softly so he didn’t risk waking her as he took another good glance at her sleeping form. He turned his attention back to Groot as he climbed over Peter’s leg and scurried over to Y/N, snuggling himself into her, resting comfortably in the exposed crook of her neck. “Careful, don’t wake her, buddy.” Peter whispered with a yawn, his fingers absentmindedly stroking through her hair.
“I am Groot?” Groot asked looking up at Peter with tired eyes.
“No buddy, we’re not leaving any time soon so get some sleep.” Peter yawned with a shake of his head before relaxing back on the couch. Normally Peter wasn’t fond on “snuggling” like this, he was mostly a love ‘em and get 'em out kinda guy but right now…. He surprised himself on how much he was enjoying have a warm body pressed against his that wasn’t in a sexual way.
Peter smiled slightly before closing his eyes, his fingers still trailing through Y/N’s hair, earning a soft sigh of contentment from the sleeping woman.
The next morning, Y/N yawned deeply, a hand coming up to rub the sleep from her eyes. She couldn’t remember the last time she had such a restful sleep. Normally she would toss and turn all night but last night she slept like a rock.
She squinted at the small rays of sunshine that were pouring in from her window. She went to stretch out her body but she felt what she thought was her couch move under her. Her body jolting up with a fright the moment she heard a deep groggy voice mutter a “Good morning”.
Y/N squeaked and sat up quickly, looking down with wide eyes to see Peter laying under her. “Oh god, I’m sorry. I didn’t mean to fall asleep on you.” She covered her mouth, her cheeks red with embarrassment as she watched a sleepy Peter Quill stretch his arms up over his head and let out a deep yawn.
“Don’t be sorry, I enjoyed being your body pillow.” He spoke through the yawn, his fingers running through his hair, giving him that perfect bed head look.
“I honestly don’t remember falling asleep.” She laughed softly, her hand rubbing the back of her neck. “Thanks for not throwing me in the floor.”
Peter chuckled and sat up, his hands rubbing his eyes. “I’d never toss you in the floor, you’re too damn warm and plus you make these cute chipmunk sounds when you sleep.”
Y/N laughed and picked up the pillow at her end of the couch, tossing it at him playfully. “I do not!” She blushed brighter.
Catching the pillow, Peter tossed it back at her before nudging her playfully with his elbow. “You do too. Sounded like you were having a full on Alvin and the Chipmunk conversation going on in your sleep.” He teased with a chuckle.
Rolling her eyes, Y/N gave him a slight shove. “Yeah? Well you snore worse than the Hulk.” She smirked before pulling Peter’s jacket off of her shoulders and tossing it gently across the back of the couch. She glanced to the coffee table and saw Groot sitting on the table, eating from a bag of chips that she and Peter had opened last night. “Groot, honey that’s not a good breakfast. Let me get changed and I’ll make you something.”
“Actually Groot and I should probably get going before your man comes home and catches us all snuggled up on the couch.” Peter spoke up as he stood up slowly. “That’d be a little awkward.
"I don’t have a man.” Y/N scoffed as she leaned back on the couch with a casual shrug. “Only an ex that pesters the ever living fuck outta me.” Peter watched as an annoyed look flashed across her face.
“Oh?” He asked with an arched brow. “Judging by that look, I’m guessing you broke up with him and he still hasn’t gotten the hint yet?”
Nodding her head, Y/N chuckled and looked up at the space outlaw. “He comes here every day asking for me to give him another chance but I caught him in bed with a rookie SHIELD agent’s legs wrapped around his shoulders. I ended it and he won’t accept it. He works here and he’s a good worker so even when Tony threatened to fire him I told him it wasn’t worth it.” Y/N explained while getting up to her feet. “Still every day he comes back and begs for mercy.”
Peter frowned at the thought of this guy, a spark of jealousy lighting inside of him. Why jealousy? He wasn’t sure, but the guy was obviously a creep and Peter didn’t like the situation and it seemed kinda stalkerish to him. Peter has had his fair share of overly clingy lovers and now he prided himself on being an expert to get rid of them. “So lover boy comes around everyday? About what time?” Peter inquires with a sly smirk coming to his lips.
Y/N arched a brow at Peter’s sudden interest in her ex but leaned over to snatch her phone up off the coffee table to check the time. “It’s about six thirty now, normally he comes around seven or seven-fifteen. Why?”
Shrugging quickly, Peter nonchalantly glanced around her living quarters. “No reason, just curious.” he replied quickly before turning his mischievous eyes back to hers. “Hey, mind if I get cleaned up here? If I don’t at least look like I’ve showered, on top of wearing last night’s clothes before heading back to the ship–Rocket will have his spread all over this place that we hooked up. I can probably get away with telling him I was just too lazy to find clean clothes.”
“Charming,” Y/N giggled while nodding, beckoning Peter to follow her. “Forget Rocket, if Richard sees you leaving my room today he’ll lose his damn mind and spread it faster than wildfire.”
“Oh his name is Richard? Good to know. I was gonna refer to him as the 'cheating dick’ if I ever got the good fortune to meet him, but knowing his name is Richard makes that even better. He actually is a cheating Dick.” Peter laughed as he followed Y/N into her bedroom. He paused long enough to take a nice look around at the large comfy looking bed that was clad in black and purple sheets. “Are those silk sheets? You have purple silk sheets on your bed?”
Y/N blushed as an amuses look came over Peter. “Y-yeah, I got them once I was single.” She nodded and watched as Peter walked over to her bed and jumped right in the middle of it. Causing the sheets to puff up and become unmade. “Really?”
“You bought these for the sex didn’t you? You planned on having a string of lovers break in your sexy silk sheets, that’s the only reasons chicks get these.” Peter taunted Y/N as he folded his arms behind his head giving her a suggestive look.
Y/N felt herself get flustered and knew this was Peter’s aim, hell two could play this game. “No, no lovers, I normally sleep naked and those sheets feel so good against your skin. You should try it some time.” She smirked watching a light red tint rise up form Peter’s neck to his ears. Clearly he wasn’t ready for a comeback of any kind after a comment like that he let his eyes go over her body, taking in every curve and every bit of exposed skin. Y/N could feel the tension beginning to form. After a night of actually talking to him and exchanging stories, it definitely didn’t take long to grow a fondness for him. Drax had to be wrong, this kind of tension didn’t form if someone found the other person repulsive, right? Why did she care? And HOW THE HELL DID HE MAKE HER BLUSH SO EASILY? She lived with Tony Stark, that man had a silver tongue but he never made her blush this much.
“Well fuck, we should’ve slept in here last night.” He finally shot back as he crawled off the bed and followed her into her nice sized bathroom.
“Why? So you could tell every one I sleep naked?” Y/N snickered as she went to the closet and pulled out a clean towel and wash rag for Peter, sitting them neatly on the marble counter.
“Listen, sweetheart, I’m not one to keep someone from their normal level of comfort. If you normally sleep in the buff then by all means, don’t stop just because I’m there.” He smirked waiting for her to turn her back before giving her a swift, playful nudge. “Ya know, we could probably save water if you joined me?” Peter threw how the cheesiest line he could come up with, in truth he wanted to see her blush again and laugh. He had already come to love the sound of her laugh. Maybe that was because she laughed at his jokes unlike Gamora who just would glare at him.
Y/N smirked and turned to face him, closing the gap between them so her body was merely inches away from pressing up against his. “Yeah? I would definitely love to join you, handsome,” She teased, mocking an innocent look, “but first you gotta tell me what in the seven hells is an A'askvarian?”
Peter instantly rolled his eyes and pushed her away playfully. “Shut the door on your way out.”
Unable to stop giggling, Y/N walked past Peter and pulled the door shut behind her. “Don’t waste all my hot water, Star-Lord.”
Unable to control his smile, Peter watched Y/N with a fond gaze as she walked out of the bathroom, shutting the door behind her. He enjoyed her playful nature and the fact that she could joke along with him and not he weirded out by his natural ability to flirt. Natasha was right when she told Peter that Y/N was easy to get along with, however just being around her only fueled his desire for her. He knew he wanted her before but now, after a short time of getting to know the person she was and that the two or them shared so many common interests, it was going to be hard as hell for him to contain himself and not make a move. He was constantly reminding himself that he wouldn’t be there forever and not to get attached. He just hoped he could control himself once her ex showed up, Peter did not do well with competition, especially when a female was involved.
