Beautiful (Peter Parker x Reader)
Request: Okay so I ahve this cute request/rant about Tom and realising how he is in love with Y/N. Imagine them doing some usual stuff, hanging out and so on and Y/N would be just complaining/ranting/joking about how she hasn’t felt beautiful in a very long time and then it would hit Tom how beautiful she really is and he would realise his feelings and he’d be like OMG WHAT THE HELL.

Following her through the store, Tom couldn’t stop laughing at her jokes. He loved going shopping with her and listening to her joke about different dresses and shoes, trying to make the experience as enjoyable as possible.
‘’It’s going to be so much fun’’ she told him. ‘’I’m so thankful that you invited me.’’
Tom smiled as he thought about the moment when he invited her to the Brits Awards and she started jump around. He had no date, so he thought inviting his best friend was a good idea.
‘’I can’t believe I’m going to meet all those amazing people,’’ she continued, ‘’it’s going to be so discouraging to see so many beautiful women standing beside me.’’
Tom suddenly stopped smiling and looked at her furrowing his brows, not understanding what she meant.
‘’Discouraging?’’ he asked. ‘’Why?’’
She shook her head and smiled softly, trying not to care too much.
‘’You know, they are all going to be so beautiful and I…’’ she paused for a second, trying to find the right words, ‘’I’m gonna be me, I guess.’’
‘’And what’s wrong with that?’’ Tom asked.
‘’I’m not beautiful. I mean, I’m not an ogre, I know that, but I’m nothing out of the ordinary. I’m simple, basic, whatever you want to call it. Nobody looks at me and thinks ‘’wow, she is beautiful.’’’’
She kept rummaging through the dresses and tried not to give it much thought, but Tom couldn’t stop thinking about it.
He couldn’t stop thinking about the way her eyes shone when she spoke about something she enjoyed, or the way she would fidget with her hands when she was nervous. He also thought about the way she would always run a hand through her hair when she wanted to look cool, and the way she would always scrunch her nose when she was mad and trying not to laugh.
Tom then started to think about the way she would always be there for him no matter the situation and the way she would always pick up the phone even if it were 3am. He thought about the way she would always laugh at his silly jokes and how she would always defend him when somebody criticized him.
It was in that moment that Tom realized the hard, cold truth -he was deeply in love with her and he didn’t even know when it had started to happen.
He looked at her once again and tried to form a coherent sentence, although he didn’t even know what he wanted to express.
‘’Hey, [Y/N],’’ he started. She looked at him and smiled, nodding for him to continue, ‘’you are beautiful, just so you know.’’
She blushed and smiled, directing her glance back to the dresses and leaving Tom wondering about how he was going to confess now that he knew nothing would be the same.
