Peter Parker had been wandering around his small apartment in Queens for more than an hour. He sighed and sat down to the nearest chair in his kitchen and shut his eyes. He felt like he was barely breathing. He was surely aggravated; there were two reasons why he was acting so acrid recently: the lack of sleep he got and her girlfriend’s lack of presence in their house. The things between them were so bitter for months now. Peter always came back to home with heavy wounds and he had been feeling extremely blue out of the stress caused him being Spider-man. Y/N on the other hand, all she wanted to do was to help her lover. She kept trying and trying until one day Peter showed her how livid he was. After that day, nothing was the same. Y/N was almost never at home, ignoring Peter’s calls. At first, Peter was just feeling down about the situation, he left her voicemails, begging for Y/N to come back in between his sobs. However, as the time passed, Peter lost his patience, the sadness grew to be anger. And tonight, Peter lost the last piece of patience he had when Y/N stepped into the house at 1 a.m. in the morning.

Keys crashing in the hall broke the dead silence in the small apartment. Peter got up from his seat outraged. He marched to the dark hall. When he arrived, the lights were on. Y/N was trying too hard to get her shoes off while Peter was staring at her impatiently, waiting for her to say something before he would break her heart without noticing. However, Y/N didn’t open her mouth; in fact she was visibly drunk, judging by her clumsy moves. When her shoes were finally off, she sighed and tripped towards to the living room without even looking at Peter’s face.

It was over. Peter couldn’t keep himself from yelling: “It’s midnight! Where the hell were you?!”

Y/N stopped in the middle of her way and turned around slowly. She smirked bitterly at him and didn’t say a word. Peter was someone else now. He was seeing red; he clenched his jaw and fist. Y/N was the opposite, she was annoyingly calm. Her (Y/H/C) hair was messy, her black tights were ripped by god knows who and there were small hickeys on her neck. Besides that, she looked miserable too. The dark circles under her eyes were showing how much sleep she got, her lips were chapped and her mascara was ruined by the tears that were falling down her face.

“You were with someone again, weren’t you?” His voice was shaking not out of anger out of heartbreak he felt.

Peter shook his head, with every minute passing Y/N not answering him, he got more frustrated. He furiously kicked the counter next to him causing the little angel objects Y/N got for their new house on the last Christmas to fall down and break. This action caused Y/N to jump; she was not waiting for that. “Answer me! I just asked you a simple question Y/N, where the hell were you!” Peter whisper-shouted, clenching his teeth, his eyes were dark. Y/N stared at the wall blankly, still not opening her mouth. “I’m done. I’m done trying so hard only for you to never even look in my direction,” Peter shouted.“

“Why do you even care now? Why don’t you just ignore me like you always do and leave the house?” Y/N yelled finally.

“Are you fucking serious?! I have been begging you to come back to our home Y/N! Why do you keep acting like this, do you enjoy torturing me or something?!” Peter was yelling uncontrollably, but this time his anger was long gone, he felt his heart aching more than ever. Tears were all over his face and he was running out of breath. He put his head between his arms, kicking random things.

“Stop,” Y/N mumbled, Peter obviously didn’t hear. “I said stop it Peter! I hate you! I’m sorry it took me so damn long to realize that.” Y/N yelled this time, Peter calmed down but still sobbing. Y/N shook her head, looking down at her feet. “I’m leaving,” she mumbled, quickly running towards to their bedroom.

Peter didn’t know what to do, he was speechless. He felt like he lost everything, he wasn’t feeling anything, he wasn’t hearing anything, he couldn’t even see anything. He blankly stared to the floor, breathing heavily. Few minutes later Y/N was back with two bags on her arms, she didn’t have a single tear on her face, even her make up was off, leaving her face purer than ever. “Y/N, please, I regret it all. I really do, I swear. Please, please- let’s fix this, please,” Peter whispered desperately, grabbing her hand firmly. Y/N shook his hand off and kept walking towards to the door. When she reached to the door, she looked at her apartment one last time, remembering the memories they had, the promises they made together. She shut her eyes, sniffed and opened the door slowly. She turned around and murmured: “Maybe- maybe it would have been better if we never met.”

When the door was shut, Peter felt like someone shot him in the head. He shut his eyes and sat down to the floor, leaning to the white wall behind him. He wasn’t crying, he wasn’t screaming, he couldn’t find the strength to move. The only thing he was feeling in that moment was the ache on his heart, like someone was trying to pull it off from his chest.

a brief timeline of mattie jensen’s hypothetical career:

  • 2000: nancy departs new york city. light of our love is riding high and mattie is the queen of the new york soap scene circa the turn of the millennium, such as it is.
  • 2001: rick arlen dumps mattie and has a brief fling with ashley judd, one of many such one-offs to litter his future. the tabloid media increasingly depicts mattie as desperate and jealous. think jennifer aniston with a cgi head clumsily photoshopped onto her body. mattie is gunshy about hiring an agent to fix her image problem (because… you know) so she’s never truly able to get past her public perception.
  • 2002: rick finally makes good on his threats and leaves light of our love for a film career that goes nowhere. a tone-deaf william pappas hires a new rory danner – an actor in his early 20s –feeding into the perception that mattie is a past-her-prime predator. ratings tank.
  • 2003: in a brief ebb in her fortunes, mattie wins a daytime emmy. it is generally agreed she did not deserve it.
  • 2004: mattie begins a high-profile relationship with brady armstrong. the couple is plagued with gay rumours and breaks up within eight months.
  • 2005: tabloid coverage of mattie’s messy romantic life is interrupted by tabloid coverage of her yo-yoing weight. by the end of the year, mattie is thin but unhappy.
  • 2006: light of our love is cancelled. mattie begins appearing at industry events acting erratically.
  • 2007: rehab.
  • 2008: in an effort to relaunch her career, mattie does a series of self-deprecating talk show appearances and hosts an episode of saturday night live. it’s not bad but it could have been much worse, so the whole endeavour is considered a lukewarm success.
  • 2009: dwayne’s newest piece of fuckery in the bahamas comes to light. mattie is called upon by various media outlets to comment. this is probably the most successful and respected she’s been in years. there are rumours of a co-host spot on the view but nothing ever materializes. instead, mattie parlays her minor resurgence into a series of mom roles in groanworthy tv movies about cyberbullying.
  • 2010: mattie does the reality tv circuit: celebrity big brother uk (universally considered uninteresting and voted out fourth to a tepid audience reaction), dancing with the stars (forced to recuse herself in week two after fracturing her ankle rehearsing the cha cha), and, most devastatingly, a poorly received series of Friend of the Housewives cameos on RHONY.
  • 2012: images surface of an allegedly clean mattie doing cocaine in a nightclub bathroom.
  • 2013: mattie is embroiled in a scandal when she drunkenly commits a high-profile act of public indecency while touring a play in the uk. mattie is forced to undergo a treatment program, perform 100 hours of community service, and donate her time promoting the scottish tourism industry.
  • 2014: photos of mattie looking unrecognizable at a charity event do the rounds on social media. it later emerges that she has undergone, among other procedures, three eyelifts in one day.
  • 2015: who can say what the future will bring but given that a previously apolitical mattie has been using the tail end of 2014 to espouse increasingly extreme right-wing political views, probably nothing good.
