Pietro Maximoff One Shot / Blurb
Prompts: 29 “now, don’t tell me you’ve fallen in love with me already” and 39 “someone once told me that we fall in love with beauty”.
To put it lightly, you thought Pietro Maximoff was a dick.
Most people would find his egotistical and teasing personality endearing but it made you want to have nothing to do with him.
You did your best to avoid him – the best that you could as he was constantly zipping around the Avengers facility, and you had made it your life mission to never get partnered with him on assignments. Every time Steve had gone to make a decision where he thought that you and Pietro would work well together, you’d give him your angriest stare which would make him decide to put you with someone like Sam or Natasha instead. You didn’t hate Pietro, which you made clear, you just couldn’t tolerate him at times.
This didn’t sit well with Pietro.
Despite Wanda’s constant ‘talks’ to him to try to cool it with his overbearing personality, which he only really put on to show around people he didn’t know that well, Pietro just couldn’t stop himself from finding you intriguing. Whenever Wanda caught him staring at you from across the room, thinking of ways to make you like him better, she’d always nudge him in the ribs and say “don’t you dare”. But he did dare and that often led to him getting his ass kicked after he’d sneak up on you using his super speed.
Finally, Pietro had enough of you avoiding him and did his best to convince Steve to pair the two of you up on a mission. Steve was obviously hesitant – you didn’t even have powers like Pietro did but you scared him more than any other team member so going against you could have some terrible consequences. But Pietro reasoned with him because if it did go well then there’d no longer be a strain in the team and you’d be able to get paired more often in missions when Steve actually wanted you to be partners. If things did go wrong though, Pietro promised Steve he’d do his laundry for 3 months and stop drawing on his shield when he got bored.
Steve refused to look you in the eye when he announced what the teams were. He didn’t want to see the look of betrayal on your face but he could feel your eyes burning in the back of his head. You didn’t argue with him because you knew that he’d have to have a good reason for putting the two of you together, not noticing Pietro grinning on the other side of the room.
