The Boost near the apartment that I am staying at didn’t have enough regular milk so they substituted the regular milk with soy milk and my Banana Buzz tasted interesting (I’ve never tried soy milk before) but it was alright! Anyways, that aside, I am a little bit unsatisfied with the ending but I hope this is alright!
PS: I have been thinking about this for a while. Do you think I should make a separate blog for my non-DC posts (aka a side-blog)? Or should I just continue posting them here? (need your thoughts on this one!)
When Peter told you to wait for him while he quickly makes a run to the store, you thought nothing of it. “Okay, I’ll be waiting right here.” You smiled at your boyfriend. Peter looked at you before kissing your temple briefly and running back towards the direction of the store.
You took out your phone and begin scrolling through Instagram, liking photo updates from your families, cousins and friends. One even managed to get a giggle out of you.
“That’s a nice laugh you got, babe.”
You jump slightly, startled by the unfamiliar voice and you glance at the man that is standing not far from you. Suddenly you feel very scared and you keep your eyes low, looking at the store, hoping Peter can sense your distress signal.
“What’s a pretty little thing like you doing out here alone?” The man steps closer and you inch back the slightest bit, which in hindsight had been a really bad idea on your part because now you are trapped between the man and the pole.
You glance at the store again before keeping your eyes on the ground. At times like this, you wish you had insisted on following Peter to the store. There was just something about this man that really rubbed you the wrong way and the fact that he was still staring at you definitely made you feel more uncomfortable too.
“Waiting for my boyfriend.” You finally answer, hoping the man would just stop advancing towards you but your hope is crushed when that prompted the man to step even closer. So close, he is now standing a few centimeters away from you and you can feel his presence. It makes your stomach churn and your heart starts to race.
The man lets out a scoff. “Boyfriend, really? I’ve heard of that multiple times.” The man leans in so close, every single time he breathes out, you can feel it on your face and you flinch. He lets out a dark chuckle. “You have quite the look on you.” He eyes you and just as you are about to make a run, the man grabs on to your arm, slamming it on the pole behind you causing you to let out yet another startled yelp. “I think I’m going to have some fun with you.”
You struggle to pull your arm and right at this point in time, you forgot all self-defense classes you have taken and tried your hardest to pull your arm away from him. The man chuckles once more, pressing his nose to your cheek. You move your head away from him but he uses his free hand to grab on to your chin so that you are staring at him instead.
“I like it when they struggle.” He licks his lips and just as he is about to press his lips against yours, something pulls him off of you and he is pulled back by an unknown force. You immediately drop to the floor, on your knees, shaking and tears are streaming down your face. Everything that happened after that became a blur – you did not even hear the man screaming for help – you are consumed with fear.
“If I see you anywhere near this area again, I will be using more than just my fists.” Peter all but threatens before shooting his web towards the man, keeping him placed against the wall. He immediately tells Karen to lodge a police report.
Peter rushes over to you and immediately gathers you in his arms. You flinch and let out a gasp when Peter brings you into his embrace. “Hey, hey, it’s me. It’s Peter, Peter Parker.” He whispers to you and the moment you hear Peter’s voice and feel his safe arms around you, you start to sob, wounding your arms around his waist, crying against his chest. “It’s alright, I’m here, it’ll be alright now.” Peter rubs your back soothingly, kissing your temple and making sure you know that he will never leave you alone ever again.
It takes a while for you to stop crying but once you did, you finally pull away from Peter. He is looking at you with concern and love. He wipes the remaining tears away from your cheeks and presses his forehead against you.
“Are you alright now, Y/N?” Peter asks and you nod your head slowly. Thankful for whoever came to save you. “I’m glad you are safe.” Peter pulls back to stroke your cheek softly. “I am so, so sorry, Y/N.”
You shake your head, taking his hand in to yours. “Can we forget this ever happened?” You ask him instead. “Our entire day had gone really well too. I just, can we go home now?” You plead and Peter nods his head. He helps you up and wraps his arm around you, pulling you close to him.
“Yeah, yeah, of course, let’s get you back home.” Peter replies as he carefully guides you back home. Right at that moment, Peter feels very guilty even if he had managed to reach you in time. That had been the only one to comfort him – the fact that he had managed to reach you in time and save you from that man.
Just the thought of that man left his blood boiling but knowing that he is now probably going to end up in the custody of the police, it makes Peter less angry. When the two of you reaches your apartment building, Peter looks at you.
You immediately hold on to him, not yet ready to let Peter go just yet. “Can you come up with me?” You ask him tiredly. You really aren’t ready to part with your boyfriend just yet. Peter has this calming effect on you and not only that, he makes you feel safer than the four walls of your apartment.
Peter nods his head, grabbing on to your hand. He laces your fingers together with his and walks with you all the way to your apartment. You, unfortunately, live alone most of the times – this being the reason why you didn’t want to be alone just yet – and by most of the times, occasionally one of your parents would drop by to see how you are doing though tonight is not the night.
“Do you want anything? I can make some tea or coffee or make something simple?” Peter rambles. He has been over often enough to know where everything is.
“Can I ask for a hug instead?” You open your arms and Peter smiles at you before nodding his head. He pulls you towards him and you wrap your arms around his body. You slowly start to feel better as Peter hold you tenderly in his arms. He is where you feel safe and right at that moment, Peter is home to you.
Peter buries his nose in your hair, inhaling and loving your scent and having your warmth pressed against him. He holds you close, savoring the feeling of having you in his arms. You don’t feel as tense now and Peter hopes you won’t be having any nightmares tonight.
“Thank you, Peter.” You pull away to look at him and Peter gives you that wonderful, adorable smile that still manages to make your heart race. “I know I don’t say this as much but I really do love you.” You tell him sincerely and the smile on Peter’s face widens and he crushes you in to his embrace, causing you to laugh in to his shoulders.
“I love you too, Y/N.” Peter presses a kiss to your temple. “I love you too.”
