Peter Parker Imagine #3
“What are you waiting for?” Ned asked, nudging Peter forward with his arm.”Go and talk to them.”
“Are you kidding me? No.” Peter whispered back harshly.
“What’s the worst that can happen?”
“They hear me talk.” Peter asnwered, making Ned roll his eyes dramatically.
Ignoring his friends’ worries, Ned calls out to the one person who had caught Peter’s attention all night. “Hey (Y/N)!”
Seeing them respond to Ned’s call with a grand smile and a wave made Peter’s heart flutter and palms go clammy.
“Play it cool Peter, play it cool.” He repeated under his breath like a small mantra as he saw them approach him.
“Hey guys.” They spoke a bit loudly over the loud music playing in the background. “Enjoying the party?”
“I like octopedes.” Peter blurted out, effectively silencing both members in their little circle. He closed his eyes and exhaled when he saw them look over to Ned as if seeking for an explanation.
“Umm… oh, look, someone is calling me! I should probably go.” They excused themselves, giving a tight smile to Ned and a wary look to Peter before attending a group of people who had in fact not called anyone.
“Dude.” Ned spoke in disbelief. “You had one job.”
“I know.” Peter groaned, leaning his head back against the pillar. “It’s just so hard when they’re around. It’s like I can’t think.”
“Clearly.” Ned said, raising his brows high before taking a sip from his drink.
Peter looked over in their direction, watching them laugh and chat with everyone else so seamlessly and wondered how long it will take before he could do the same.
