Imagine being the only one Peter shows his vulnerable side to.

“Peter, hey,” you stop his frantic movements, keeping him from putting on his jacket as you try to grab his attention, “What’s got you like this? What’s wrong?”

“Oh, nothing,” he snaps, but you know the anger is not directed at you, but rather at whatever was troubling him, “Just that the one person who burnt down my entire family and has tried to kill me twice is back from the dead, a legion of Berserkers in her wake.”

“Kate,” you sigh in realization, pulling Peter a little closer as you smooth your hands down his arms in an effort to calm him, “That’s what’s bothering you?”

“In so many words,” Peter nods as he takes a breath, reaching up to run a hand down his face.

You take his hand, giving a small smile as you soothe, “That’s understandable after all she’s done. How about we sit down, and you can talk to me about it, if you want?”
