You were standing at your locker, grabbing your books when suddenly you were engulfed into a hug from behind.
“Happy birthday!” Peter said.
“Hi, Peter,” you smiled, turning around so you could give him a proper hug.
“Thanks for actually remembering this year,” you said, pulling away.
“Ouch, how could I forget my favourite girl’s/guy’s/person’s birthday?”
(WOw I could have totally worded that differently but I like the idea of being someones favourite something)
Your heart flipped when Peter said that. He was your best friend but you had been hiding your feelings towards him for years.
“I mean, I vaguely remember you forgetting it last year,”
“I don’t know what you mean,” Peter lied.
“You can still come over after school right? We have lots of birthday celebrations planned,” Peter asked.
“Well, me, Ned, Michelle, and Aunt May,”
“WOw! I hope you guys didn’t go all out for little old me,”
“Oh please, yes you do,”
“Okay, only a little bit,”
“More like a lot,”
“I feel like you should be more excited for your birthday, I mean, you have been waiting for this day all year,” Peter added.
You rolled your eyes, “C’mon Parker, we have class,”
“Or we could skip class and go and celebrate?”
“Peter, my parents would kill me,”
“Please,Y/N,” Peter begged, pulling out his puppy dog eyes, something he knew you couldn’t resist.
You sighed, “Fine! Fine! Yes, okay,”
You and Peter shoved your backpacks into your locker.
“You’re not going to regret this,” Peter said, grabbing your hand and leading you out of the school.
Peter led you through the streets of Queens, clearly heading in a certain direction.
“Peter where are you taking me?”
Peter tightened his grip on your hand and continued pulling you towards your destination.
“Be patient, Y/N,”
“Peeetteerrrr, you know I hate surprises,”
“Yeah, but I think, I certainly hope, you’ll love this one,”
“Seriously Parker, where are we going,”
“Patience is key, darling,”
You huffed and continued walking down the street holding Peter’s hand.
“And here we are,”
Peter stopped you in front of a little bakery type thing (wow I am the best at describing things).
“Where are we?”
“Okay, so, I found this place one day while I was out being Spiderman and blah blah blah they have the best treats in all of Queens. And since I know you love sweet things, which is why you love me so much, obviously, I figured we could get a bunch of stuff and just pig out,”
“Peter you’re really sweet,”
“I know,” he winked, and led you inside.
You and Peter spent what felt like forever picking out different desserts to bring with you, wherever it was you were going next.
You walked out of the shop, thanking the owner, carrying doughnuts, cookies, cupcakes, muffins, cinnamon rolls, and more.
“Where to now Parker?”
“Now you need to hold on tight,”
“Just hold on to the treats, wrap your arms around me,”
“Peter, if you wanted to get this close, you could have asked much sooner,”
Peter laughed, “Just hold on, Y/N,”
You wrapped your arms around Peter’s neck, and held on to the bags of treats. Suddenly you weren’t on the ground anymore.
You tightened your grip on Peter and squeezed your eyes shut as you were swinging through the air.
“Almost there, darling,”
When you landed, you took a minute to adjust and held your grip on Peter. Peter’s hand traveled down your back.
“Open your eyes, Y/N,” Peter said, leaning in to whisper in your ear.
You let your arms drop from around Peter, and you looked around to where you were.
You were standing on the top go a building close to the water.
“We flew all the way over to Brooklyn?”
“It’s not that far,” Peter shrugged.
You walked over to the edge of the building where there was a edge that you and Peter could sit on.
“I can’t believe you brought me all the way out here,”
“I know how much you love the water, I figured this was one of the better views,”
You smiled, and climbed up to the edge. Peter sat down next to you and took the bags of treats from your hand and pulled out a doughnut, handing you back the bag.
“Admit it, Y/N, this is a much better way to be spending your day,”
“I dunno, Parker, if this is your way to make up for the fact that you forgot my birthday last year…”
Peter rolled his eyes, “Fine, I will admit that I maybe kind of forgot your birthday last year, but in my defence it wasn’t long after I had gotten my powers and everything was kind of fuzzy. Especially time,”
“Nuh-uh, don’t think using Spiderman as an excuse will get you forgiven. I’ll never let you live that down. Even when we’re 40 and have little spider kids running around everywhere,”
You paused, realizing what you had said.
“You see, Peter, every once and a while I do this thing where I say more than I should and I end up with my head up my ass,”
Peter smiled, “No no, go back to what you said about spider kids,”
“I mean I’d assume by the time you’re 40, you’d probably have kids,” you said, taking a bite into your cupcake.
“Are you asking me to have kids with you?”
“No,” you said, mouth full of cupcake.
“I mean, if you wanted to get started early and spend your birthday that way, we totally could,”
“For fucks sake Parker, that’s not what I meant. I’m not opposed to it, but not what I meant,”
“Then what did you mean?” Peter asked.
“I meant that, I dunno, I always figured there would be a chance we’d get together in the future. I always thought you’d be the Jim to my Pam,”
“You want me to come swooping in and tell you that you’re stupid for dating the wrong guy, and then start dating someone else, and then break up with them because i’m still madly in love with you?”
“Essentially, yes,” you said, taking another bite of cupcake.
“Well, for one, you have icing on your face,” he started, wiping the icing off with his thumb, “and two, Y/N, I think you’re so stupid for dating each of your past boyfriends and girlfriends, except for maybe that thing you and Ned did, sweet guy but, ah you know what I mean. REGARDLESS, I haven’t gone out to date the wrong person but I think I really want to skip that step because i’m madly in love with you,”
You laughed, “Peter, I know it’s my birthday, but you really don’t have to humour me,”
“What if I told you I wasn’t humouring you?”
“Then I’d ask why you haven’t kissed me yet,”
“Then i’d tell you i’m waiting for later,”
You rolled your eyes at Peter, and continued eating your sweets. You and Peter spent most of the rest of the school day up on the roof of the building, slowly making your way through the bag of treats.
“C’mon Y/N, more birthday surprises await,”
“Oh really? Am I finally going to get that kiss?”
“Patience is key, darling,”
“Keep calling me darling like that and I might actually collapse from how hard my heart beats when I hear you say it,”
Peter smiled, “Whatever you say, darling. Now hold on tight, we have places to get to,”
You wrapped your arms around Peter once again, and you were off.
You landed on the ground outside Peter’s apartment building, luckily no one was around.
“I know we were joking about it earlier, but you really didn’t bring me home for the reason I think you did,”
“If you think that MJ, Ned, and Aunt May are waiting upstairs for you, then yes, that’s exactly it,”
When you walked in the door of Peter’s apartment the three people yelled “Surprise!”
“I think Peter kinda ruined the surprise when he told me about this earlier this morning,” you said
“Peter!” May said, “I told you not to tell Y/N,“
“Sorry Aunt May, I forgot,”
“Yeah right, more like you are just madly in love with them,” Ned muttered
“Ned shut up!” Peter said.
“Presents?” Michelle said, interrupting.
“Please,” Peter said, grabbing your hand and bringing you over to where there were four presents sitting on the coffee table.
You squished on to the couch between Ned and May and began opening them.
The first you opened was a present from Ned. It was a lego death star.
“Oh my god, I can’t believe you got me this,” you laughed, wrapping your arms around Ned for a quick hug.
“Well, I remember how jealous when Peter and I finished before you could help, I figured sometime you and I could put it together,”
“It’s perfect Ned, thank you,”
After you opened May and Michelle’s gifts there was one left on the table.
“I really hope you like it, Y/N. Open the card first,”
“It’s from you, of course i’ll like it,”
You reached into the bag and pulled out the card and opened it.
You have been my best friend for almost my entire life. I honestly can’t remember a time before you. I know nothing I do or say could ever make up for me forgetting your birthday last year, but truthfully I kinda think you forgave me a long time ago and you just enjoy teasing me. Regardless, I know it can’t be easy (your best friend being Spiderman and all) but I hope this gift shows you how much you really mean to me.
Love you, darling.
You reached into the bag and pulled out a photo album. In the front slip there was a photo of you and Peter from when you were 5, sitting on a picnic blanket together.
You opened the book and began flipping through the pages. It was filled with photos of you and Peter as kids, some even with the two of you and his uncle Ben.
You closed the book and clutched it against your chest.
You walked over to where Peter was sitting on the floor and dropped down beside him. You placed the book on your lap and placed a light kiss against Peter’s cheek. Peter wrapped you in a hug,
“I love you, Parker,” you said quietly.
“Happy birthday, darling,” Peter whispered.
“Alright! I don’t know about any of you, but I could definitely use some cake!” May said, standing up, and calling you to the table.
Before you got up, you placed another light kiss against Peter’s lips.
“Thank you Peter, I really love my present,”
“C’mon darling, let’s go eat some more sweets,” Peter said, standing up and offering you his hand.
You gladly took it, and let him lead you towards the table where you spent the rest of the evening surrounded by some of your favourite people.
Apparently Peter was right, sometimes patience is key. But sometimes Patience is a pain in the ass because he still hadn’t given you that kiss yet.
