A/N: So this was so much fun to write oh myyyyyy, the ending is my favorite hahha, I am willing to write a part two if people really want it. But yeah, enjoy :)))
Lately, you’d noticed your best friend Peter had become a bit distant, you’d see how tired he’d look when he came to school, how on edge he was all the time, even a few marks on his face from time to time.
You were concerned for your friend, but at the same time you were confused as to why he was shutting you out.
You’d noticed Ned had started becoming distant too, becoming closer with Peter and excluding you more.
Michelle had noticed this happening too, she too didn’t understand what was going on, but at the same time she didn’t really care, it didn’t involve her.
You walked over to your table at lunch, carrying the brown bag in your hand, as Michelle sat a few seats away like usual, her face in a book, however, you noticed Peter and Ned having an intense conversation, but the second they saw you, they stopped.
“Hey guys.” You smiled, but they didn’t return the smile, nor the friendly gesture.
You felt your heart break, what had you done that made them suddenly hate you so much?
“Is every thing okay?” You questioned hesitantly, looking between the two of them.
Ned and Peter glanced at you for a split second before looking at each other, letting out a sigh.
“Yeah, every thing is fine Y/N, just a rough day, that’s all.” Ned answered vaguely, as you nodded, clearly not convinced.
You couldn’t help but observe Peter, he looked tired, worn out, overall just miserable.
“Peter are you sure you’re alright?” You asked again, you didn’t believe that they were just fine you knew there was more than what they were letting on.
“Y/N, just let him be.” Ned pressed on, making you roll your eyes, a flash of anger going through them, making Ned shut up quickly.
“I don’t give a damn, I want to know what the hell is going on? Is that so bad?” You spoke angrily, watching as Ned shrunk in his seat as Peter just glared at the table, his anger finally peaking.
“You know what Y/N? You need to mind your own damn business, maybe if you did that more often you’d actually have friends! Maybe then we’d actually like to hangout with you more if you weren’t constantly trying to pry into our lives and figure us out all the time! It’s like you have no consideration for anyone but yourself!” Peter shouted, surprising not only himself, but Ned, Michelle and especially you.
Peter had never yelled at you before, especially not in front of everyone.
You sat there, wide eyed, unable to speak, your heart broken into a million pieces.
He did hate you.
You nodded slowly, tears brimming your eyes as you started packing up your lunch, no longer hungry and definitely no longer wanting to be around him.
“Sorry to have been such a burden to you.” You spat out, tears streaming down your cheeks as you stormed out of the cafeteria, throwing your lunch away as you left.
Peter sat there watching you leave, his heart breaking as you did, he knew he messed up, really bad.
“Dude what the actual hell was that!” Ned shouted, hitting Peter on the arm, making him wince.
“I don’t know! Ugh, I really don’t know.” Peter muttered, frustration clear in his voice.
Michelle on the other hand was watching every thing, although she never interfered with any of her table members, she felt this was a good time to break that.
“What you did was really fucked up Parker, she really cared for you, I hope you remember that.” Michelle commented, before grabbing her book and her apple, and exiting the table, leaving both of them in shock.
“Dude you’re so fucked.” Ned groaned, as Peter hit his head on the table, groaning out in frustration.
“I know, I don’t even know why I said what I did! It just came out without warning.” Peter sighed, rubbing his face with his hands.
“Honestly Peter, I don’t know if you can fix this one, I don’t think Spider-Man himself can fix this.” Ned whispered the last part, making Peter sigh sadly, he knew Ned was right, you were never going to forgive him.
He didn’t know what had gotten into him the past few weeks, his job as Spider-Man had become a bit more stressful, therefore adding extra stress into his regular life, and then on top of that there was school, where he was pressured into doing well all the time, and he just couldn’t balance it out recently.
He’d been loosing hours of sleep fighting off criminals as Spider-Man, therefore making him more tired in class, unable to focus on the lessons.
Sometimes he’d come to school with a new cut or bruise from his mission the previous night, causing Ned to panic when he’d see him at his locker.
And then there was you, the sweetest person he knew, his best friend, the one person who wouldn’t even hurt a fly, the one person who genuinely cared about him, and now he pushed you away by going too far.
He thought pushing you away at first was the best to protect you from what he actually did, but as time went on it just got worse, he knew how bad he was hurting you, and it hurt him too, but he kept telling himself it was for the best.
But then Ned started to avoid you too, which made Peter angry, he wasn’t supposed to ditch you too, but Ned was also his best friend too, which made it even more difficult.
Peter and Ned had avoided you the best they could for two weeks, slowly getting out of your life, to keep you safe of course.
But you, you found it the total opposite.
And now your assumptions were proven correct, and you couldn’t feel any worse than you already did.
This time it was your turn to avoid both Peter and Ned, you did for weeks, refusing to talk to them, look at them, sit with them, basically anything that involved them, you find a way out of it.
If you were such a burden to their lives why be in it at all? Wasn’t that what they wanted anyways?
Peter did say you always tried to pry into their lives and figure everything out, and that you had no consideration for anyone but yourself, so you decided maybe he was right.
That’s why you decided to change, you weren’t going to be that person anymore.
Weeks turned to months, and you were still ignoring them, they did their best to try and talk to you, but it was no use.
You on the other hand became best friends with Michelle and Liz, who also helped give you a complete makeover.
You decided to become a better version of yourself, you dressed nicer, did your hair and even put on makeup, something you never once used to do.
This surprised everyone the day you walked into school with Liz and Michelle, nobody had ever seen you like this before, and you weren’t going to lie, you loved how much attention you were getting.
You noticed Peter and Ned, watching you with wide eyes, which made you smirk slightly, you got what you had wanted.
Peter and Ned on the other hand, got the exact opposite, they changed you, for the worst.
“Dude what the hell!” Ned whisper shouted, looking at his best friend with wide eyes.
“I don’t know Ned, I guess I really hurt her, and now she’s getting us back by becoming something she isn’t.” Peter sighed, leaning his head in his locker, groaning as Ned just stood there still stunned.
“She did look good though, you have to admit that.” Ned nudged Peter who’s head shot up quickly, hitting his head on the locker shelf.
“Ow,” He muttered, rubbing his head before slamming his locker shut, “And alright yeah, she does look good, I hadn’t seen her like that before.” Peter shrugged, adjusting his backpack straps.
The bell rang, and everyone started going to their classes, sadly for you, your first class was with Peter and Ned.
“Alright, good morning everyone!” Your teacher Mr. Scott smiled, as you all gave blank stares.
“I see everyone is tired, but this is chemistry and it’s going to blow your mind and wake you all up! So, to do that, I’m assigning you all in groups to work on a project.” Mr. Scott picked up his paper, scrolling down the list, while reading off names.
“Y/N, Peter, and Ned, you’re all one group.” Mr. Scott announced, making your eyes widen as you glanced over at the two of them, who were equally as stunned.
He then dismissed everyone to get to work, you slowly walked over to their table, throwing your stuff on the desk.
Peter and Ned watched you anxiously, unsure of what to say, or even what to do.
“So, uhm, what do you think we should make?” Ned broke the awkward silence, you gave a shrug in response, not looking at them as Peter kept his stare on you, his heart beating faster.
“Y/N, do you have any ideas?” Peter pressed on, making you roll your eyes before looking up at him, his eyes widening, this was the first time in months you both made eye contact.
“I think you should go to hell.” You smiled, grabbing your pencil before writing down chemical formulas.
Peter’s mouth dropped open, that was the last thing he’d expected to hear you say, he felt his heart break more, but there was also a bit where anger was slipping in.
“You know after months, I thought you would of cooled off already.” Peter muttered, making your head snap up, your eyes narrowing at the brunette boy in front of you.
“I’m sorry, let me see, last I checked my ex best friend was super nice, but then he suddenly abandoned me, and then his other friend, who was also my friend, abandoned me, and then I was told I wasn’t a considerate person, because all I care about is myself, which is ridiculous because I distinctively remember trying to care about you and see what was wrong.” You shook your head, laughing at how in denial he was. “God you’re such an asshole.” You spat, your blood boiling as you grabbed your backpack, storming out of the classroom, despite your teacher yelling at you.
“Dude what is wrong with you? Are you trying to make her hate you even more than she already does?” Ned scolded, shaking his head at his friend as he sat there stunned.
What was wrong with him? Why couldn’t he just apologize for what he had done, now he just made it worse.
But that seemed to be the only thing he was good at doing lately.
Days passed since the incident in the classroom, you had told Liz and Michelle what had happened, they both were surprised Peter had the nerve to say that to you, but they were proud when you finally found the courage to stand up for yourself.
A few more days passed, you were at Liz’s house, having a movie night with her and Michelle, you started doing this so you would get over the other two who shall not be named.
“So Y/N, are you going to homecoming with anyone?” Liz questioned, popping a piece of popcorn in her mouth, Michelle also curious.
“I don’t know, I don’t really know that many people.” You admitted, shrugging your shoulders.
“Oh come on Y/N, basically the entire football team wants to take you!” Liz laughed, throwing popcorn at you as Michelle grinned.
“Oh hush.” You laughed, eating a piece of the popcorn that was thrown at you.
You felt your phone buzz in your pocket, you let out a groan, causing Liz and Michelle to look over at you.
“It’s my mom, I gotta go.” You sighed, giving a sad smile to your friends who begged you to stay, but eventually let you leave.
You started walking home, it was late, the sky was dark, sometimes you were nervous walking alone, but for some reason this time you weren’t.
That is until you felt some sticky substance connect to your shirt, and before you knew it you were flying across Queens.
“What the hell! Put me down!” You screeched, and thankfully the “kidnapper” put you down on a building rooftop.
“Oh great it’s you, Spider dude.” You muttered, trying to remove the web attached to you.
“That’ll dissolve in two hours.” Spider-Man spoke, making you roll your eyes.
“That’s just great!” You sighed, running your fingers through your hair annoyed.
“Any reason you decided to kidnap me?” You looked at the masked hero, who shifted awkwardly.
“Actually yes.” He sighed, slowly pulling the mask off his head, revealing the last person you ever expected.
“Peter?” You whispered, your eyes wide as Peter watched you nervously.
“I-I wanted to tell you Y/N, but my job, it’s just so dangerous, and I couldn’t afford to have anything to happen to you.” Peter rushed out, his hands shaking anxiously.
“Y-You lied to me! You made me feel like the shittiest person ever Peter!” You yelled, making him cringe at your words.
“You made me feel like you hated me.” You whispered the last part out, tears sliding down your cheeks.
“I thought that maybe if I made you hate me, it’d keep you safer.” Peter tried to explain, reaching out to you, but you backed away.
“You don’t get to touch me, you lied to me, you broke me.” You choked out, your body visibly shaking.
“I’m so so sorry Y/N.” Peter apologized, but you just laughed, making his blood turn cold.
“Did Ned know?” You questioned, watching him avoid your gaze, you nodded slowly, running your tongue over your lip, “Wow, so you trusted him, but not me.” You sniffed, anger taking over your emotions.
“I didn’t intend to tell him! He found out by accident!” Peter defended, making your shrug.
“Does it matter? He still knew Peter! Makes sense why he decided to leave me too.” You laughed bitterly, shaking your head at all the information you were receiving.
“Please Y/N, I’m sorry, please forgive me.” Peter pleaded, but you just shook your head.
“No Peter, I’m not going to forgive you, you put me through hell for months, and now you think it’s okay to just apologize and assume every thing will be back to normal.” You looked at him, tears stained on your cheeks as Peter looked at you desperately.
“It’s your turn to feel what I felt.” You looked around, noticing there was no way off the building.
“Get me down from here please.” You sighed, as Peter nodded sadly, wrapping his arm around you for what was probably the last time, as he swung you home.
He set you down on your fire escape, but before you could turn and go inside, he pulled you in for a tight hug.
You didn’t want to, but you slowly hugged him back, deep down you missed the brunette nerd, but at the moment you despised him with a burning passion.
“I will win you back.” He mumbled into your hair, pressing a kiss to your forehead, before swinging off.
It had been weeks since you had last seen Peter, or as you should say “Spider-Man” which wasn’t a bad thing.
He was off doing who knows what, fighting whoever, while you were planning on who to go with for homecoming.
“So how’s project Y/N coming along?” Ned asked, spinning around in Peter’s chair.
“It’s not, it’s more how is she making me feel, and I feel like shit. She told me she was going to make me feel how she felt, and well, it’s working.” Peter groaned, tugging on his hair frustrated.
They both were silent for a moment before Peter’s head snapped up, something was wrong, his Spidey senses were tingling.
“I gotta go, be back soon!” Peter shouted, before going out his window to where he was being directed.
When he arrived to the scene, he was shocked, there was a group of people being held hostage by some random person in a costume.
“Hey, sorry to interrupt this,” He motioned to the hostages, “But you have to let them go.” He added, as the villain laughed.
“And why should I do that?” They fired back, the voice making his eyes widen a bit.
“Because, it’s me you want.” He shot back, his heart beating quicker, as the villain nodded slowly, releasing the hostages.
“Alright fine, have it your way.” The villain shrugged, catching Spider-Man off guard as they hit him in the stomach and face.
Spider-Man groaned, before getting back up, he knew that voice, but how did he know it?
“Who are you?” He asked, as the masked villain laughed, grinning through the mask.
“Your worst nightmare.” They responded, before hitting him again, making him groan in pain.
Then it all clicked, it was you, you were the new villain he had been fighting for the past few weeks, and he just now realized it.
“Karma is a bitch Peter.” You laughed, before disappearing into the darkness, Peter standing there stunned.
He quickly swung home, scaring Ned as Peter flung his mask off, pacing around the room.
“Dude calm down, what happened?” Ned questioned, watching his best friend pace back and forth.
“You know the new villain I was telling you about?” Peter rushed out quickly as Ned nodded in response.
“I just found out who it is.” Peter breathed out, his face flushed as Ned waited anxiously.
