Rooftop Season (Peter Parker x Reader) Part 4
Distracted doing homework with you, Peter ends up running late for an outing with Aunt May and things take a turn for the worse.
(Longish) A/N: I haven’t abandoned Rooftop Season guys!! Two things happened: first, I was struck with a massive, nasty case of writer’s block. I didn’t know how to develop the plot (sometimes I plan things when I write, other times I let it flow. For RS I let the direction of the story surprise me). And when I finally overcame that, I was overwhelmed with uni work. Still kind of am, but I found some time to sneak in a new part. I hope I haven’t kept you waiting THAT long, I do apologise, and hope you have still fun reading. Thank you thank you for keeping up with the story so far, I love youuuu
It was 4.30 pm.
The library was empty as usual, save for you and Peter, both busy slaving away at your respective assignments.
It wasn’t the first time you found yourself alone in his company. In fact, these ‘after school hangouts’ had become the norm between you and Peter.
Ever since he danced to Rihanna and invited you to sit with him for lunch, your friendship with him had deepened.
It hadn’t been easy to get to this stage of easy intimacy. Initially sitting with him and Ned had been nothing short of awkward. The two of them didn’t really know how to make conversation with you, having been so used to entertaining one another. And being shy, you didn’t know how to approach them either.
So more often than not, the three of you would sit staring awkwardly at your plates or phones and make small talk.
Eventually, the tension melted away. Rather than glance at plates for lack of confidence for eye contact, you held staring contests all the times. Phones were no longer on the table except if you were texting each other in the group chat. Superficial jokes turned to inside jokes. Video games at Ned’s house on the weekends were scheduled all the time.
Whereas one time Peter and Ned were solely friendly faces in the hallway, they were now your closest friends. Especially Peter.
