Request: Hi! I really love your stories! Could you please do a fic where reader is partially deaf so she can read peoples lips to help her understand people, then she accidentally reads Peters lips and he’s talking about her?
A/N: Wow i’m sorry I’m such a slow writer, jeez. Sorry for being slow at this. I also hope this is what you were looking for. I’m sorry I was too lazy to do research on being partially deaf.

Warnings: Extreme mentions of abs?
You were Michelle’s best friend, or only friend, as she called you. You were good friends with Peter and Ned as well. You were in marching band with Peter, well, before he quit. But you were also on the Decathlon team with them.
You didn’t find yourself seeing Peter and Ned outside of school very often anymore. Not since Peter got his internship with Tony Stark.
You had been partially deaf since you were younger. This had always been an extreme struggle for you because of how much you love music. You could still hear some things. You could hear the chatter in the cafeteria at lunch, but you couldn’t really make out anything anyone was saying. In band you could still feel the beat, which really helped.
Although, over the years, you’ve somewhat mastered reading people’s lips. It was how you would take notes in class, understand what your friends were saying, and essentially everything else.
Most of the time you would sit at a lunch table with Michelle, at the table next to Peter and Ned. It was hard for you to pay attention to an entire conversation. Everyone was always nice about it, especially Peter.
When you sat down for lunch with Peter, Michelle, and Ned, they were already deep in conversation.
“Hey Y/N,” Peter smiled.
“Hi Peter,” you said
You smiled at Ned and Michelle too.
Michelle had her head stuck in a book, so you tried to pay attention to what Peter and Ned were talking about.
“Are you going to tell her?” Ned asked Peter
“Tell who what?” You asked, inserting yourself into the conversation
“Oh it’s nothing,” you read off Peter’s lips.
“Please, Parker. I know you well enough to know when you’re lying,”
“I think you should tell Y/N,” Ned said
“I also think you should tell Y/N” you said
Peter turned his head to the side and whispered something to Ned.
“Come on Peter, that’s not fair at all,”
Ned shrugged and continued to listen to Peter speak. Eventually Peter turned around to face you once again.
“Sorry, Y/N. That was on a need to know basis,”
“Not fair at all, Peter,”
After lunch you headed to your chemistry class with Peter and Ned. You sat a few benches in front of them. Every once and a while you would turn around and see the two talking.
You attempted to read their lips to see what they were talking about. You were still curious as to what Peter wouldn’t tell you at lunch.
You stared at Ned and Peter for a while, but you were only able to make out a few words here or there. For a moment you thought you saw Peter say your name, but he turned to look at you so you immediately looked away.
You were sure that they were probably talking about lunch. What else would they be talking about?
When class was over, you tried to catch up with Peter to walk with him to your next class,
“So are you ever going to tell me this secret of yours?” You asked Peter
You turned to him to read his response
“Which secret?” He teased
“The one you and Ned were talking about at lunch, and last period. I saw you say my name, Peter. I know something’s up,”
“Don’t worry about it, Y/N,” Peter said as you walked into your physics classroom.
It was now really bugging you why Peter wouldn’t tell you what was going on. But you really had no way to talk to Peter in this class, he sat too far away.
You pulled out your phone and sent him a message
Y/N: Do you not trust me or something?
Peter: Of course I trust you!
Y/N: then what’s going on with you
Peter: Well my “secret” is something I want to tell you but I’m just not ready to.
Y/N: it can’t be that bad
Peter: No, but i’m kinda worried about how you will react
Y/N: What if I promised I would react in an appropriate fashion
Peter: I dunno
Y/N: Please, Peter. Its not like you’re Spiderman or anything right?
Y/N: Cause if you were I’d have to kick your ass, you know that right
Peter: I don’t even know what to say to that
Y/N: Oh my god. Are you Spiderman?
Y/N: I mean that would explain your abs and oh damn
Peter: When have you seen me shirtless…
Y/N: Me? WHo? I dont know what you’re talking about.
Y/N: Fine, so you’re not Spiderman but that still doesn’t explain the secret you’re keeping from me or your abs
Peter: I’m still so curious why you know I have abs
Y/N: Don’t ignore my question
Peter: You’re never going to let this go are you
Y/N: Of course not. You may as well just tell me.
Peter: Fine, i’ll telll you after school today in person.
Y/N: Looovveeee you Parker
Peter: Yeah, yeah
You smiled and put your phone back in your pocket. You were excited to know what Peter didn’t want you to know.
After school, you met Peter at his locker.
“So are you finally going to tell me?” You asked
Peter turned to you, “Let’s go somewhere where there are less people,”
You nodded and followed Peter into the empty music room.
“THis better be a juicy secret, Parker. I’m missing band for this,”
Peter took in a deep breath “LookY/N-ireallylikeyouandwanttodateyou” he said quickly
“Peter, I think you’re forgetting that I can’t exactly completely hear you, and when you talk like that I can’t read your lips either,”
Peter stared at you for a second before you spoke again, “Enunciate, for the love of god,”
Before Peter could speak you interrupted him again “You are Spiderman, aren’t you. I just don’t understand how you could get those abs unless you were Spiderman. Sure you do sit ups in gym, but that does not explain it,”
“Y/N? Are you done?” Peter asked
“You’re right. You couldn’t be Spiderman,”
“I could so be Spiderman,” Peter got defensive
“Eh,” you shrugged
“Look, that’s not what I wanted to tell you,”
Peter Licked his lips, “Y/N, I really like you,”
“Well, I like you too Parker, but I don’t under-OH”
“Yeah. I like you as more than a friend,”
“Oh. Well then I guess I should probably tell you that I like you are more that a friend too,”
“Yeah, and your abs aren’t even the reason why. I mean, they’re part of the reason, but only a little part,” you teased
“Jeez, Y/N, what is it with you and abs?”
You shrugged and look a few steps closer to Peter.
“So, if I like you, and you like me, and you were to ask me on a date sometime, and we went on more than one date, would that mean that sometime, eventually, I’d get to see those lovely abs of yours?”
Peter laughed, “Y/N, would you like to go on a date with me?”
“Yes,” you smiled.
Peter stepped forward and placed a hand on your face, and another on your hips. He slowly leaned down and pressed his lips on yours.
You leaned forwards and pressed your chest against his, slowly moving your hands under his shirt.
Peter laughed into your kiss.
“Sorry Parker, I couldn’t help myself. You’re just really pretty,”
“You’re really pretty too, Y/N,”
“So wait, that was your secret? That you have a crush on me?”
“Yes, that was my secret,”
“I think a better secret would have been if you were Spiderman,”
