You knocked on Peter’s apartment door and Aunt May answered. She smiled widely and hugged you. “Come in! I’ll tell Peter that you’re here! It’s so nice to see you!”

Peter appeared behind his aunt. “You don’t need to tell me, Aunt May. I’m right here.”

He grabbed your hand and pulled you into his arms after you let go of his aunt. His embrace was tight and you smiled. This boy made you very happy. But today was not a going out kind of date day, so you let go.

“Ready to study?” you asked.

“Yeah. You?”


As he pulled you toward his room by your hand, Aunt May called after the two of you, “Leave the door open!”

“Aunt May,” Peter wined.

“Don’t ‘Aunt May’ me, mister. I’d rather not become a great aunt for a few more years!”

“Aunt May!” Peter cried out, his cheeks flushing with embarrassment.

She merely winked and went back to the kitchen.

Peter hurried you out of the living room and into his room for school studies. As soon as Aunt May couldn’t see the two of you, Peter kissed your temple.

“You know, maybe we should study at your place. At least there, we don’t have anyone assuming that we’re meeting up to have sex.” Peter muttered.

“Well, I think the way that you get flustered is cute.”

“Cute? That’s all that I am?”

“For now,” you replied smugly.

He grinned and looked down at your hand still in his.

“You know, I’m really glad to have you. With all of the craziness….” He squeezed your hand.

“I’m glad, too.” You kissed his cheek. “Now are you ready to do homework?”

“With you, I’m ready for anything.”

A half-hour later, both you and he were studying chemistry. You didn’t say anything to him, but you were struggling with the redox reactions. Big time. A heavy sigh escaped your mouth and he noticed.

“How’s it going over there?” he asked tentatively from the head of the twin bed, study materials separating the two of you.

“It’s going fine,” you replied, your frustration seeping into your tone. Just as you were able to figure out when he was involved in Spider-Man stuff, he was able to pick out how you were feeling.

“Y/N, what’s the matter?”

“I still don’t understand redox reactions! I’m so frustrated! No matter what I do, I can’t get any of them right, or understand how to do them with the model that we’ve been given.” You didn’t look at him.

He moved the study materials out of the way and sat next to you again. His hands pulled your study materials out of your hands and replaced them with his hands. “You know you could ask me.”

You replied softly, “I know, but I don’t want you to think that I’m stupid.”

He let go of one of your hands and tilted your chin up to him. “Why would I think that you’re stupid? You’re really smart.”

“I don’t feel very smart.”

“Well, I think that you are, and there is nothing wrong with asking for help. Don’t feel stupid asking me for help, okay? I love you. I’m always willing to help you.”

You nodded and he leaned down to kiss you as you said, “I love you, too.” Unfortunately, it was almost as if Aunt May was waiting for that moment. “Lemonade, anyone?”

Peter groaned and leaned back onto his bed. You bit your lower lip, turning red.

“Thanks, but we’re fine,” Peter said, his voice sounding strangled as he tried to stay calm.

Aunt May left and Peter sat back up, pulling you quickly into his arms and kissing you before his aunt could pop in again. You were slightly taken by surprise, but fell into it and kissed him back.

“Don’t think that you’re stupid,” he pulled back, slightly breathless, “because I don’t.”
