A/N: So I originally intended for this to be the last part of Skyline, but because things needed to be explained so much, the story is getting a bit longer than I anticipated. For that reason, there will be a Skyline pt. 6!! I almost wish there wasn’t, because I love the evenness and finality of five parts, but what can you do. Special thanks to Zoe and Jen for helping me brainstorm ideas, and for giving me feedback!! Also, just a reminder, I do not have a tags list!! I really hope you guys enjoy pt. 5!!!
You really had no idea how Spider-Man did it. How could he walk around in his civilian life, bursting at the seams with the secret of his powers, and not tell anybody? How could he stay up half the night roaming the streets of Queens and keeping them safe? How did he balance his hero responsibilities with those of a typical teenager? You were sure that, if the radioactive spider had bitten you, you would not have been able to handle it like Spider-Man did.
You felt the change immediately when you woke up the morning after your night with Spider-Man. After crossing all those lines that the two of you had so carefully left uncrossed for months, you had stayed up almost all night, just talking (and also kissing a little bit? But really, could anyone blame you? He was a super hero). Once Spider-Man had left around four am, you had had less than two hours of sleep once your alarm rang at six. And by the time you made it to school, you had felt like death warmed over. That day had been a groggy fog of trying to stay awake and coherent until school was over, and you were tucked away in your cozy bed.
