I Said I Love You
Ship: Peter Parker x Reader
Warnings: Mentions of Food, Swearing, Kissing
A/N: This was taken from my old blog that I wrote Marvel on, and I thought I’d post it as a little ‘Happy Thanksgiving’ gift to you all since I haven’t had time to write an actual fic!!
“So,” you said loudly from the kitchen. “What’s up with May and Tony?”
A loud clatter sounded from the living room and you snorted under your breath. Peter came stumbling into the kitchen with a wild expression on his face, a small glob of peanut butter smudged on his cheek.
“What do you mean? May and Mr. Stark?” You snorted again. You still couldn’t believe how much Peter idolized Tony.
“Yes, May and Tony. He was practically all over her at that charity event we went to the other night.”
“No, no, he wasn- was he? Wait, what?” His voice rose a pitch at the end of his sentence, making you glance up at him from the sandwich you were making.
“Peter, come on,” you shook your head dramatically, smirking up at him. Your best friend was always so oblivious. (You’d always loved him for that, though.) “How can you not see it?”
“He- no, no,” he shook his head vigorously. “That’s not-” he looked at you as if you were crazy. “He loves someone else.”
“Yeah, your aunt,” you chuckled at the expression Peter gave you and went back to making your sandwich.
You shrugged one shoulder. “Debatable.” A piece of bread hit you in the face, and you closed your eyes at the soft impact. You looked up at Peter after a few seconds and saw a small smile on his face, one eyebrow quirked and peanut butter still smudged on his cheek. He couldn’t have looked anymore perfect.
“God, I love you,” you sighed, not quite realizing what you said until you took in Peter’s shocked expression. His eyes were wide and his mouth was open and shit. That’s not how it was supposed to happen.
“Wh-” he stuttered for a few more seconds before speaking a coherent thought. Your grip tightened on the knife in your hand. “Wh-what did you just say?”
And that was your Peter. The oblivious one who never really noticed how your gaze lingered on him, like your touches. The confident one who you only ever really saw when you were alone or when he was in his Spiderman suit, or when he was smirking just moments ago. Or even the unsure one who made so little appearances, and it made you shocked that he was standing right in front of you.
You took a deep breath, bracing yourself. “I said I love you.”
Your heart beat loudly in your ears during the long seconds that Peter ceased to reply in. He closed his mouth and his eyes shrunk from their big appearance slightly, but he still didn’t speak. After a full minute of silence, he opened his mouth and you again took in a quick breath.
You almost let the knife clatter to the floor so you could run out of the apartment in humiliation, but he spoke once more.
“Want to go on a date with me this Friday?”
The knife almost fell to the floor for a completely different reason.
“Yeah. Yeah, okay,” you smiled, breathing out in relief.
“Okay,” he smiled wide, too, and the both of you just stood in the kitchen, grinning at each other. “Make me another sandwich?”
You were still grinning when you replied, “Sure.”
He started to turn around and you grinned down at your abandoned sandwich, half cut and half made, when Peter turned back to you.
He leant towards you quickly, leaving a small kiss on your cheek. “Love you, too.” He sped back to the living room, not giving you time to look at him before you heard him plop down on the couch.
You laughed giddily, still looking down at the sandwich in front of you, and you thought you heard him laugh happily, too.
Happy Thanksgiving to all of my followers who celebrate it!! Here’s a little fic I wrote a while back on my old blog, and I figured I’d post it on here too as a little update. I promise I’ll be back with new content soon :)
