Warnings: Sassy Jubilee, attempt at a fight scene, small awkward moments, Peter Maximoff being cheeky af
Peter Maximoff was stubborn. He knew that you were the one that had taken them, but he couldn’t find any proof. Her friends refused to tell him if she’d done it, and Charles refused to read her mind. And no one was letting him near the security cameras. He was stuck having to assume she’d done it.
So, like the totally mature person he was he decided to investigate. And by investigate he meant going around humming the Batman theme trying to find a way for you to confess. It was harder than it looked. Raven Darkholme, tired of all this, decided to end it all in a training session.
“Today class,” Raven began. “We’re going to work on hand to hand combat. No powers are allowed, and trust me, I will know if you aren’t. Go pick your partners.” You turned to Jubilee, ready to begin. But someone got in the way.
“Hi Y/N,” it was Peter. Of course it was him. He was constantly trying to get you to admit that you’d stolen the box. And obviously, you weren’t going to let him win. “Why don’t we work together? We clearly have issues that we need to iron out!”
“I didn’t take your Twinkies.” you replied, looking for Jubilee. If Jean was reading your mind right now, she would’ve helped. But to no avail, you were on your own.
“Are you sure? Because Jubilee and Jean said it wasn’t them.”
“What if it was Ororo?”
“We both know that she would take it more discreetly.” He was right, and you knew it. You just had to convince him that it wasn’t you, and time was running short.
The whole session didn’t go well. For some reason, the both of you were more sluggish than usual. Raven suggested (more like mildly threatened) that you both stay after, and train more. Since almost no one wanted to get on Raven’s bad side, the both of you agreed. You picked up a punching bag, and prepped yourself for an attack. But before you could do anything like that, you felt a breeze pass by you.
“Whatcha doin’ (L/N)?” Peter asked. You rolled your eyes, and sighed, turning towards him.
“Taking this punching bag,” you gestured towards the bag. “And pretending it’s you.”
“Wouldn’t you actually want to train with me instead?”
“I would, but I have a feeling that you’d use your powers.”
“Me?” Peter scoffed. “Pssssh. I’d never do that.” He was lying.
“Why don’t we make it a game then?” you asked, a coy smile making its way to your face. “If you can win a sparring match without using your powers, then I’ll tell you what happened to your Twinkies.”
“And if you win?”
“Then you have to stop bugging me about what happened to them.” He smirked, and you knew that you had yourself a deal. Peter charged towards you, and you moved to the side. Then, you ran to him, and tried to punch him. He saw it coming, and also dodged. This continued on for several minutes, before you were finally able to flip him over, but not without him taking you down with him.
You landed on top of him, and pushed yourself above him.
“Does this mean I win?” he questioned. You sighed, and knew the jig was up.
“Yeah, you want the truth?” you responded.
“I took the Twinkies. But I didn’t know they were yours!” And he seemed to change expressions, from curiosity to a knowing smile.
“I knew it!” His face was still a smile. And it was only then that you realized how close you two were. Peter’s hands found their way to your waist, and your hands began to cup his face. And you could feel your faces getting closer to one another. Were you two going to kiss? You weren’t sure, but you didn’t want to do it in the Danger Room.
“We should probably leave now. I’ve got homework that I need to do.” you blurted out.
“So you’re telling me that you almost kissed Peter?” Jubilee asked. The two of you were sitting on her bed, and it would’ve been a girls night if Ororo wasn’t on a mission, and if Jean wasn’t on a date with Scott.
“But then you got yourself out of the situation with the excuse of having to do homework, which is definitely not true. You finish your homework before we go to the Danger Room.”
“I know, I know,” you groaned, while pressing your palm to your face. “It was really awkward, and I don’t know why I didn’t kiss him.”
“Well at least you didn’t steal another box of Twinkies from him.”, she replied, while staring at the box of Twinkies. “You did check to see if those were his right?”
“Shit.” you muttered. Picking up the box, you checked each side of the box, and found a message on one of them:
These are Peter’s Twinkies. If found in someone other than his or Kurt Wagner’s possession, then they have probably been stolen. Either by Y/N or Scott.
There was an awkward silence between you and Jubilee.
“Should we hide it?” you asked.
“He’ll probably know it was you.” she replied. You two stared at it awkwardly, not sure what to do.
“How about bringing it back to the pantry.”
“We’re too slow for that.”
“Then what do we do?”
“What do you mean we? I didn’t take the box.”
“Thanks Jube, it’s nice to know that you have my back.” you sarcastically spoke. “I’m going to bring this back to the pantry.”
“Good luck!” Jubilee called out, as you walked out of the room. You knew the way to the kitchen, and hoped that Peter wouldn’t find you. Just as you placed the box back in the pantry, you felt a presence behind you.
“I knew you took it.”, Peter said. You turned around to see him leaning against the doorframe.
“I didn’t mean to,” you replied. “Again.” He sped to the pantry, where you were, and examined the box.
“I don’t know about you, but if I was someone else, I’d assume that you liked me. And that you were stealing these for my attention.” He looked up from the box, and gave you a playful smile. “Which is kind of cute.”
“If I was someone else, I’d assume you were taking this too far.”, you teased. “And that you liked me. Which is also kind of cute.” You weren’t sure if you should tell him about your feelings, but you needed to get it out of the way.
“You know, in the Danger Room, I thought we were going to kiss.”, you stammered, it felt like you were fumbling for words, not sure where this was going to go.
“Did you want that to happen?” he asked. The two of you were close. Very close. You would’ve nodded if your body didn’t decide to freeze up at this very moment. Instead of that, you decided to be as smooth as you could in this situation.
“Uh huh.” You felt his hand on your face before his lips met yours. Immediately, a feeling of warmth went across your entire body. Your arms went around his neck, as his went down to your waist. After what seemed like forever, you had to pull away for air.
And turned to see Jubilee in the doorway, with her mouth wide open.
“You know, I was wondering what was taking you so long.” she said.
