some people can say being a teenager is difficult, and it sure is. But being a teenager with super powers, growing up with no parents and with some mental issues, that’s just some other level shit. Tony Stark did save your life, both literally and figuratively. he pulled you out of jail when you got cought stealing some food but only because he was the only one who saw how you did that, he brought you to the tower and trained you then he decided you were ready to become an Avanger.
“i have some bad news, Y/N.” Bruce’s face was so sad, you could tell he really didn’t want to be the one to tell you that. “it seems your powers are the ones cousing your mental sickness, the more you use them… the worst.”
no one really know if they will kill you some day, guess one day you’ll figure it out, but for now you have live with it. Tony thought it would be a good idea if you took pills and that’s pretty much how you’re handling this for now.
“so, how are things with Peter?” Wanda asks playing innocent. “who?” both of you just finished training and it seems like she wants to gossip now. “oh please, save it. Cap told me you apologized the other night.” Traitor. “no, i did not.” you look at her a little offended, not knowing exactly why. “yeah, whatever. i’m gonna take a shower then we talk.” she doesn’t wait for you to answer, she enters into the elevator and disappears. Great.
you haven’t talked to Peter since the night he arrived, you manage to ignore everytime he tries to talk or approach to you. he even sent you a note, inviting you to train with him, one day, the poor boy regretted when he saw the shattered paper outside his door.
you didn’t hate Peter, at all. it’s just, he is new, he doesn’t know the right way to treat you so if he doesn’t things will just get out of control, just how happened with the glass, and he doesn’t deserves that or any of your shit.
a couple of hours later, you find yourself alone in the tower, the others are either doing their own stuff or in some mission, Wanda’s case. you’re regularly alone here, Tony picks your missions very carefully that means you don’t go out there frequently.
since it’s getting so late, you start to prepare dinner for everyone. they love your food and you love making it so everybody wins. Friday plays some music, you hum and dance a little, feeling very relax. the oven notifies you food is ready, but it can’t be taken out, you sense a presence you don’t recognize. in seconds, you turn around, knife in hand and stop whoever is trying to come near you. red and black suit standing in the kitchen door, totally patalized.
“what the f- Peter?” you walk towards him, allowing him to move again. “are you okay? is everyone okay?” you assume he was in a mission since he has his suit on. “god, that’s your power? i still don’t know what your powers are.” he ignores your questions completely. “Friday, report, please. an why wasn’t Mr. Parker announced?” you sit on the kitchen table, grabing one of computers the others always leave there and putting the knife away.
“Mission report: Captain, Wanda, Sgt. Barnes and Vision are all in perfect conditions. Natasha has a contusion and some bruises but is going to be okay. They are all resting now. Mission has been complete succesfuly. Mr. Parker was not part of this mission and his suit had been updated for me not to sense it but not anymore.” you look at Peter who’s rolling his eyes at what Friday just said.
“Peter, explain. now.” you stand up from the chair and take the food out of the oven. thank god Friday turned it off and dinner is in perfect form.
“i went out to visit my aunt and then decided to try out the updates. guess one doesn’t work anymore.” he takes his masks off and fixes his beautiful hair. “sorry i scared you.” he sits.
“don’t do it again.” calm down, Y/N. you say to yourself. “you hungry?” he nods and you prepare his dish and hand it to him with some juice. “good night.” you try to get out of the kitchen fast but he doesn’t let you. “Y/N, wait. please.” some seconds pass before you turn around. “what do you need?” he stands up and gets close to you.
“i just… i feel like i need to apologize for the other day… and you’ve be- been avoiding me since then and- it’s just- i would like us to be friends.” you would like that too and that thought suprises you. It just can’t happen.
“apology accepted, i apologize too, actually.” he smiles. “but we can’t be friends, Peter Parker. sorry.” his cute smile disappears slowly. you would love to explain things to him, it seems he would understand. but you’re just not the ones who share. “good night.” and with that, you retire.
Peter stands there, again, really hurt by your words. this has to stop happening, he thinks. you two have spoken twice and still manage to hurt each other, unwittingly.
“Friday, please tell me when Mr. Stark arrives and tell him i need to talk.” Peter won’t give up on you so easily.
Part 3 soon!!!
