Paring: Peter Quill x Reader
You woke up in your bed to find that Peter wasn’t there. This wasn’t a shock to you. Honestly, it was more of a shock he spent the night in your room than anything else.
You two had this thing. You were friends, you were partners.. you were the freaking Guardians of the Galaxy. But there was this thing. This unspoken thing.
One night on the ship, you both were stressed. So much was going on, and you both started drinking. The next thing you know, you were kissing. Then, the next thing you know, you were in Peter’s bed.
Afterwards, you immediately freaked out thinking it would be so awkward and weird between you two now. But it wasn’t. It was literally like nothing had happened. And you were so thankful. You thought that would be it. But then, it happened again. And again. And again… Now it was just this thing that happened that you didn’t talk about. And you tried your best not to think about. But most of the time, you did.
Last night was a little different. Peter was being very generous to you in many ways. He had been nicer to you lately. He was never mean, but you felt he was complimenting you more. You noticed that night when he came to your room, he wasn’t focused on his needs. He made it clear he wanted you to feel good. You laid down afterwards and you were so tired. You just shut your eyes, ready for sleep. But you never heard Peter get up. Instead, he moved closer to you which made you open your eyes.
He was staring right at you. “Can I…” he said, trailing off. You looked at him, urging him to go on. “Can I stay tonight?”
You nodded, closing your eyes again. “It’s fine, Peter. I don’t care if you stay.” You say nonchalantly.
You assumed he was just comfortable and that he didn’t want to leave. Plus, it wasn’t that late, so maybe he was worried one of the team would see him leaving your room. But he wrapped his arms around your waist and pulled you into his chest.
Is Peter Quill cuddling right now? You have to be dreaming.
You just sat there with your eyes open and you knew your heart must be racing. You eventually fell asleep, very confused. But you decided to just go with it.
But now, here you are, in your bed alone and still bare from the night before. You get up and find Peter’s shirt from the night before on the floor. You stare at it a moment before deciding to throw it on. You grab some panties and head out in search of breakfast.
You stop by and press play on Peter’s awesome mix as you head to the kitchen.
The all so familiar beat sounded through the speaker, making you smile. This one was your favorite.
You nodded along and kind of danced your way to the kitchen. The beginning was slow, but the beat had picked up now. “Hell.. hell..” you sang, smiling. “What’s the matter with your mind and your sign and a ohhh..”
You began making some bacon and the song went on finally coming to your favorite part. “Cause you’re fine and you’re mine and you look so divine… come and get your love… come and get your loveee…”
You were really just enjoying this song and really jamming out. You go to check on your bacon, then someone slips their arms around your waist from behind your back, making you instinctively push them off and slam them into the fridge putting your spatula up to their neck. Your eyes soften as you realize who it is.
“Peter?” You ask.
He just starts laughing at you. You shove him and got back to your bacon. He’s still laughing. “What?!” You finally yell.
“What? Nothing,” he says, throwing his hands up in defense. “I was just wondering how you kill someone with a spatula. You gonna flip me with that thing?”
You roll your eyes, but then you realize something. You slam the spatula down and look over to him. “How long were you standing there watching me?”
He smirked. “Long enough. You’re a great dancer.”
You blush and get your bacon out of the skillet, putting it on a plate. You try to focus on the food in front of you instead of looking at Peter.
He comes over behind you and wraps his arms around your waist like before. He sways with you to the music. He leans down and whispers in your ear, “is that my shirt?”
You blush again, knowing he must think that you’re obsessed with him. Or crazy. He’s never going to want to…
Your thoughts were cut off by him turning you the face him. He tips your chin up to make you look at him. “You look beautiful.” He says, barely above a whisper. “Much better in it than I do.”
The song changed. It was now Strange Magic. He put his hands on your waist and pulled you away from the counter. You put one hand on his shoulder and grabbed his other hand. The two of you danced around and he just looked into your eyes. He pulled your hand up and spun you around and pulled you back into him. You literally felt like the breath was kicked out of you as you looked at him.
“And you say you’re not a dancer.” He whispered.
“If you tell anyone, I’ll kill you, Quill.”
He smirked down at you. “With your spatula?” He said.
You pushed him, making him laugh more. You rolled your eyes and pulled out of his arms entirely. You go over and grab your plate of food and go sit at the table. You grab some orange juice and start eating. Peter comes over and sits down next to you. He’s looking on his tablet at the news you assumed.
You finished your breakfast and leaned back in your chair, looking over at Peter. You wondered where he went that morning. You wanted to ask, but you didn’t want to pry. You didn’t want to come off as “that girl”. You know… the clingy ones. The two of you weren’t even a couple. You were just friends… that danced in the kitchen while you have no pants on… that admire each other.. that have sex…
“Where did you run off to this morning?” You blurt out suddenly, surprising yourself and Peter.
He looked a little dumbfounded. Like he wasn’t expecting you to ask. “I just had some things to do around the ship. I got up when I usually do.” He said, simply.
You knew that was true. He was always busy at work.
“So, when are we going to talk about the fact that we’re more than friends?” You ask, wondering to yourself where this is coming from. You never reached out on such a limb before.
He literally spit out his coffee and dropped his tablet on the table, looking over at you. “Are we doing this? Talking about this?”
“Okay… here we go,” he says. “The night that I kissed you… we both were so stressed out because of the whole Ego situation. It just kind of happened and it was a blur.”
You nod to him, urging him to continue.
“I just wasn’t expecting it to be anything more than two friends who got a little drunk and made a mistake. I wasn’t expecting it to happen again… and again… and ag-”
You reach over and punch his arm. He smirked at you. “You just kept begging for more.” You said.
“Oh, me? I was begging? What about you?” He says. “Oh, Peter! Please, I need you inside of me!” He continued in a high pitch moany voice.
You deadpanned him. “The night in the cockpit.” You said, simply.
He stopped smiling, and just looked over at you. “That’s cold.” He said.
“Y/N, I need you. I need to not think for a few minutes. All I want to think about is us for a few minutes.” You say in a deep voice.
He just looked down and you wondered if you said something that offended him.
“I used you.” He said.
“What?” You say, furrowing your eyebrows.
“I was selfish and used you not to think about my problems.”
“I used you too.” You said. He looked up at you. “I didn’t want to think about my issues either. I loved how I could just lose myself in you.”
You each just stare at each other for a moment. Peter finally gets up and pulls you out of your chair. He looks down at you in an adoring way. You tried to keep your breathing steady. He began to lean in and your heart set on fire. You had kissed plenty of times. But suddenly it felt so different.
His lips brushed against yours and you almost let out a gasp. You reached up and destroyed the small gap between your lips. The kiss was soft, and slow. It wasn’t sexual at all. It was sweet.
He pulled away and let his head rest on your forehead. “This is more than friendship.” He said.
“Yes.” You said.
“This is also… more than just sex.” He said.
This was not something you had imagined hearing. You smiled up at him. “Yes… it is.”
“Someone stop those two kids! They’ve done unspeakable things….”
OK this started off as a fun doodle but now I sorta want to tie this in with the mercenary!Toffee au. Moon would be his tag along, they would’ve ‘teamed up’ in thier late teens, maybe? Toffee finding a despicable child born with wielding a powerful magic wand?
Given dark magic who’s history has progressed since Eclipsa’s reign? HELL YEAH!
So I’m adding Moon into the mix.
