I heard a loud crash and gaze locked down the streets of downtown Queens. There were screams and people began to yell running away from the explosion. I stopped, avoiding the people who ran and tried to see what had happened.
It was Saturday, and I had just gotten off work which was a relief. For some reason Saturday mornings were really popular and it always stressed me greatly. There was another sound from a few houses down and fear stuck me. I heard a gasps around me as I made my way to the explosion. Suddenly, a hand gripped my wrist pulling me back.
“So I thought I told you not to get into trouble.” Spiderman said looking down at me.
“Oh hey Spidey.” I grinned.
“Y/N.” he warned.
“I wanna know what’s happening.” I told him.
“I’ll tell you when it’s finished.” He said. “Now go. I don’t want you getting hurt.”
“Oh come on.” I groaned. “I’ll just peak in—”
“No.” He interrupted.
“What if I—”
“No.” Another explosion sounded and his gaze ripped from mine. “Y/N go now.” He said.
“Wait.” I said grabbing his wrist. He looked back at me.
“Be careful.” I mumbled. “Please.” Spiderman nodded shooting his webs to the building next to me.
“I’ll be fine Y/N.” He said. “Now go.” I let his wrist go watching him propel into the sky to the explosion. I waited for a little bit before shaking my head continuing to walk toward the explosion. He wouldn’t see me, it didn’t matter. And I would be fine, I just had to be careful. I climbed into the wreckage as a small bomb blew up a few feet from me. Shit. I thought. This may not have been a good idea. I walked quickly toward only standing building peering through one of the window. Woah Ironman! I thought. He fought against a tall man and I watched as the man slowly lost. I snorted. What did he expect? He was fighting Ironman. I felt someone grab my wrist again and force me against the wall of the crumbling building.
“You have got to be fucking kidding me.” Spiderman growled. “Do you ever listen?”
“I wanted to see—” I started before there was another explosion.
“Shit.” Spiderman whispered. He grabbed me pulling me closer to him. His web shot up to attach to the building next to us. “Hold on.” He mumbled before I attached myself to him and we went soaring up. We landed abruptly and I let go of him looking down at the wreckage. “You know, Y/N I have enough shit to deal with. And then you—”
“Don’t worry about me.”
“Yeah well that’s hard to do when you go exactly where I told you not to go.” He said. “Honestly Y/N do I need to web you to something?”
“I’m fine.” I shrugged. “Are you working with Ironman?” I asked.
“His suit is so cool.” I smiled.
“What?” I asked.
“Stay here.” He said. “I mean it.” I nodded slowly.
“Okay I promise now go the save the world.” He stared at me for a moment before shooting himself away. I ran to the edge of the building to look over at the fight. I cursed frowning as it disappeared from my view. I stared out before I sat down sighing. “Stupid Spiderman.” I mumbled.
It felt like a couple hours that I was sitting there, the explosions had not gone off in a long time. I slowly stood up hearing sirens. I quickly made my way down the stairs tripping a little bit at the rubble that surrounded me. Was he okay? I thought. I made my way carefully through the rocks into the main building. I swallowed when I saw no one there. Where was he? I thought. I made my way around for about ten minutes continuing tripping. Why was I so clumsy? I thought. I rubbed my elbow that I had hit pretty harshly against a rock until I heard voices from an alley near me. I walked quickly toward the voices. I saw Ironman and I smiled watching how his mask disappeared from his face. My gaze found my webbed friend as they stood next to each other the guy who I assumed was the villain was knocked out cold and webbed lying on the ground.
“Nice job kid.” Tony Stark grinned down at Spiderman.
“Thanks Mr. Stark.” Spiderman said. “He wasn’t much of a threat.” I breathed a sigh of relief as I looked at him, both of them still oblivious to me, standing a couple of feet away. Spiderman reached toward his head slowly pulling off his mask. I froze. His hair was messy and he continued to grin at Tony Stark, not noticing me. Tears filled my eyes as I looked at Spiderman—no not spiderman Peter, Peter Parker. I swallowed as a tear rolled down my cheek. I couldn’t speak, I couldn’t move. It felt as if my world was crashing down on me. How could I have been so stupid?
“Whoops sorry nothing to see here.” Tony grinned looking at me. Peter, who hadn’t seen me yet smiled at his mentor before looking over at me his smile falling from his face.
“Y/N.” I heard him whisper.
“You know her?” Tony asked. “Great, now we don’t have to erase her memory.” I assumed he was joking but that was the last thing on my mind. More tears fell from my eyes as I slowly backed away.
“Shit—Y/N.” He said taking a step toward me. I shook my head letting out a sob before turning and running out of the alley. I heard him follow me as I ran. I tripped suddenly falling on the ground sobs ripping through me. “Y/N.” I felt his hand on my back. I stood up ignoring the pain that swept through me.
“Don’t touch me.” I whispered before I started to run again tripping again but quickly recovering.
“Y/N!” I heard him yell at me. I stopped suddenly feeling webs on my the wrist of my right arm. I tugged trying to get away, the tears in my eyes blinding my sight. “Y/N please listen to me.” He said as I felt his hand grip my wrist.
“Leave me alone.” I tugged turning around.
“Y/N.” He said grabbing my other arm turning me to face him.
“Are you happy now?” I asked.
“You are a real hero Peter.” I sobbed. “I trusted you—”
“Y/N please—” I shook my head thinking about all the times I had talked to to Spiderman, all the things I said to him.
“‘I bet Peters a really nice—I’m sure he likes you.’” I sobbed. “You are a real piece of work you know that?”
“Y/N I’m so sorry.” He started.
“Let me go.” I tugged at the webs.
“Please just listen to me—”
“Let me go!” I yelled at him. He swallowed helping me out of the webs. I turned before his hand wrapped around my wrist turning me to face him.
“Y/N please, just let me explain.” He begged.
“I wish you’d never saved me.” I sobbed trying to tug my wrist out of his grip.
“Did you enjoy leading me on?” I asked. “It’s amazing—I told myself I would never let anyone break my heart but congratulations Peter—or Spiderman, you won that prize.”
“I didn’t mean—”
“Sure you didn’t.” I sobbed.
“Please Y/N just listen to me.”
“I hate you.” I glared at him.
“Stay away from me Peter—I mean it.” I ripped my hand from his grip walking away quickly.
