You opened the door to your room to find Peter sobbing in the bed. His head was buried into the pillow but you could still the ragged sounds that escaped from his body. You walked slowly over to the bed and sat down by his side. When you touched his shoulder he jerked up to see it was you. The expression on his face broke your heart. His face was shiny from tears and red, his silver hair sticking out in random directions. His beautiful brown eyes red rimmed and full of tears. You pulled him close to you, wrapping one arm around his waist while the other one went up around his neck, tangling your fingers in his hair.
“Peter, what’s wrong?” You whispered.
It took him a second to catch his breath. You could feel the shudders that racked his body.
“I’m n-not good enough. I-I won’t make a g-good en-enough h-husband or f-f-father or even s-son. Ev-everyong I love leaves a-at some point. I’m j-j-just not g-good enough.” Peter hiccupped into your shoulder.
“Peter Maximoff, you are good enough.”
“L-look at m-me, Y/N! I’m p-pathetic, I c-can’t even tell E-e-erik that I’m his s-son. I’m a f-failure. I c-can’t even s-stop crying.”
You pulled Peter in even tighter and stroked his hair slowly. As you let him cry you just rocked back and forth.
“Peter, you are good enough for me. You may not be ready to be a husband or a dad but I’m not ready to be a wife or mom. And when it comes to Erik, it will come in time. We both have time to grow. And I’m not going anywhere. I love you, Peter. That’s not going to change. Not now, not ever,” you whispered into his ear.
Peter pushed his face up to lean his forehead against yours. He let out one last shaky breath. When he opened his eyes you started to tear up.
“Thank you,” he whispered, brushing his lips against yours.
The two of you lay down on the bed together, nose to nose. When Jean came to get you for training, she found you two sleeping in that same position. It was so adorable she left you like that… Well she may have tried for ten minutes to wake you up and failed. And she may have heard the two of you giggling as she walked away. Just maybe.
