A/N: Thank you anon for this request, sorry this is up later than expected. Hope you enjoy it!
Pairing: Pietro x Reader
“Fine By Me”
"It’s not my fault you’re so slow” Pietro spat.
“You better watch what you’re saying”
“and what are you going to do? Tell me”
It was no surprise to the rest of the team that you two were fighting. Lately, it had become a normal occurrene.
“HEY! kids! Can you take your scrap somewhere else? I’m trying to enjoy my breakfast” said a tired Clint
You and Pietro used to be good friends. Note ‘used’. You didn’t understand what had happened, one moment you two were fine then the next he started acting less than kind towards you. This had been going on for over a month now and you were getting sick of it. You didn’t understand what you did for him to act like this, and you were beginning not to care. After how he had been treating you, you had grown to despise him. Still, a small part of you couldn’t ignore the small crush you used to have on him, no matter how much you wish you could.
“Whatever, you’re not worth it. I’m not wasting any more time on you” you spat as you stormed to your room, suddenly you weren’t so hungry.
“Fine by me sweetheart” you heard Pietro call. You slammed your door and slumped on your bed, thoughts filled with Pietro Maximoff.
The Avengers sat quietly and watched Y/N and Pietro go at it yet again. This
was getting old, there was enough fighting outside of the tower, the last thing
anyone needed was more within it.
“Fine by me sweetheart!” Pietro exclaimed as Y/N stormed away.
“Pietro-” Wanda began.
“-don’t sister. I don’t want to hear it” he said; and as quickly as he was there he was gone followed by a streak of blue.
“This is getting old. We can’t have our own teammates fighting” said Steve
“And what do you propose we do about it Cap? The kids practically hate each other” said Clint sarcastically said as he took a sip of his coffee
“I wouldn’t be so sure about that” smirked Wanda.
“What was that Maximoff?” Replied Clint. Suddenly, all of the teams eyes were on her. Wanda stood taller in her chair, smile visibly playing on her lips. “I know my brother, and without even touching his mind I can easily see the he does not hate Y/N. He is however, horrible at expressing his emotions” Wanda disclosed
“What are you implying?” Said Steve skeptically
“Nothing at all. I’m simply stating that maybe there’s more to both of their words than they let on” shrugged Wanda.
“Roadrunner has a school crush Cap” Clint laughed “oh this is gold! Sonic and Y/N. I can say, this I didn’t see coming"
"Are you sure Wanda?” asked Steve
“I know my brother Steve, I am sure”.
Clint smiled, “boy, do I have an idea”
You hadn’t left your room for hours. You didn’t want the chance of running into
Pietro again. Perhaps you cared about this more than you claimed. Still, you
were in the right to be upset with him for a) picking fights with you and b)
completely tarnishing your friendship. You were more hurt than angry if you
were to be honest.
You were curled up watching the Lion King when you heard a knock on your door
“Who is it?” You called
“Y/N open up it’s Clint” you heard him hurriedly say.
You raised your eyebrow. Why was Clint here? Still, you got up and opened the door.
“I need you to come it’s urgent!” He said
“Just come!” He said as he grabbed your wrist and began pulling you down the hall.
After a few minutes of walking you arrived in a part of the tower you hadn’t
seen before, you looked at Clint skeptically. “Where are we?” You
asked. “Just trust me, alright?” he replied. Soon you came to a large
black door. “Clint seriously wh-” before you could finish your
sentience Clint pushed you into the room and shut the door. Quickly you
scrambled to the door and tried to open it, no luck. “CLINT!” You
screamed. Once you got out of there he would not be a happy camper.
“It’s no use I have already tried” you heard a voice say behind you. Quickly you turned to see the very man you were trying to avoid.
“What are you doing here Pietro?” You asked. “Wanda told me she needed to talk to me about something, then of course here I am” he replied.
Just then you heard Steve’s voice on the other side of the door, “hey guys..um.."
"STEVE! Get me out if here NOW! This is NOT funny!” You screamed. Just then, you heard the voice of a familiar billionaire “sorry, no can do kiddo. In the mean time why don’t you two braid each others hair or confess undying love for each other or whatever it is you do. We’ll be back in a few hours. Au revoir"
You heard feet walking away but continued to bang on the door. SOMEBODY had to hear you eventually, you needed to get out of here!
"Stop Y/N! They are not letting is out” Pietro said
You sighed and slumped down on the floor across from Pietro, you could not believe this was happening. What was this? Eighth grade?
“I’m not happy about it either Y/N” Pietro mumbled. You looked up at him in surprise, he chuckled “you know, you really need to watch that, thinking out loud, I can remember a few times already that it’s gotten you in trouble"
"Stop it Pietro” you said
He looked at you with a confused expression “stop what?” He asked.
“You don’t get to act all buddy buddy with me after how you’ve been acting” you spat
“It’s not my fault” he defended
“No? Who’s is it? Mine? I didn’t do anything to you Pietro. It’s not my fault that you started picking fights with me” you said
“Well, you’re not a saint here either! You have instigated just as much as I have. I-I didn’t know how to react!"
"React to what?” You asked
Pietro’s face hardened “nothing, it’s nothing. Stop barraging me!” He said defensively
You raised your eyebrow
“Pietro, if something’s the matter, just tell me. Do you think I want to fight with you all of the time? It’s exhausting” you said
“I know it is. But..I can’t tell you. I refuse” he said
“Oh for God’s sake Pietro!” You cried. “Fine! That’s fine. Keep it to yourself” you said as you shuffled away from him.
You two sat there in silence for what seemed like ages. Surprisingly, he was the one that broke the silence.
“…look Y/N. I’m sorry, I don’t want to fight, so please, just leave it be” he said
You looked up at him “I don’t want to fight either. But I can’t trust you, and I can’t just leave it be. You went from being my friend to hating me in one day. What does that say about you Pietro?” You replied
“I’m an idiot okay? I could never hate you! I just..acted like I did."
"That doesn’t make any sense!” you said
“Look. I like you; and I don’t know what to do about it, so I-I don’t even know was I did. It was stupid, yes; and I’m sorry. I-"
"Wait. What did you just say?” You interrupted
“I like you Y/N. A lot” he said, his gaze never leaving yours
For once, you didn’t know what to say.
“Oh.” Is all you managed.
Pietro sighed. “I didn’t want to make things..what?awkward? I..um…sorry.”
You both sat there for a few moments. Before you knew what you were doing, you burst out laughing.
“What is so funny?” Pietro asked tentatively. “I-” is all you could say before you burst into more laughter. You couldn’t believe this.
Finally, after a few more moment of laughing your head off whilst Pietro looked at you like you were mad, you collected yourself enough to form actual words.
“Sorry, this is just..wow, okay.” Pietro raised his eyebrow at you, clearly asking for a better explanation. “All of this, just because you couldn’t talk about your man feelings?” You laughed “do you know how much of this could have been avoided?”
“I know Y/N I-"
”-No. Do you why this is funny? The feelings mutual Pietro, it’s mutual”
His head shot up.
“I like you as well Pietro. I have for awhile now”
Now he was the one laughing.
Little did you know, you two were not the only ones to share in the laughter. “Wanda! Stop laughing! Tell us what ms going on!” Clint asked. The rest of the Avengers were sitting in the common room listening for updates on how Clint’s self proclaimed ‘genius’ plan was unfolding. Judging by Wanda’s smile things were going better than many had expected
After you and Pietro had collected yourselves, he looked at you in a smile.
“Well, that was a waste of time, wasn’t it?” He said. You smiled and nodded, all of this time and energy and it turns out you were both on the same
“Come here” he said, you shuffled over and snuggled into his shoulder and he put his arm around you. You hadn’t realized how much you wanted this moment until it happened.
“I’m still mad at you” you lightly mumbled. He smiled, “I would still be too, it’s only been an hour. But I hope your anger doesn’t stop me from doing this” he said as he planted a gentle kiss on your forehead. In that moment you were glad that you were nuzzled up against him so he couldn’t see the tiny blush that formed on your cheeks.
“Fine by me” you said with a smile.
