“I don’t see where the bad thing is.If you like him,why don’t you just tell him?” asked Michelle,her eyes fixed on her drawing.
“Because if he doesn’t like me back, it means bye bye friendship! Forever…" She whispered as she took a look at the girl’s “piece of art” as she called it.
“I can’t risk it…”
“You said bye bye to your friendship with Peter the moment you fell in love with him…" Michelle stated,rolling her eyes.
“I thought you were on my side?” Y/N almost shouted. Immediately,she took a look around,making sure that nobody had heard her.It didn’t seem like it.
“I am on your side Y/N! I mean, i’m literally sitting next to you…”
Y/N widened her eyes in shock.
"Wh-what?” MJ let out a small laugh.
“Okay,i’m kidding…Look,i think you should tell Peter everything. Avoiding him isn’t really helping as you can see. And why are you coming to me for advice again?”
“Because we’re supposed to be friends?”
Y/N stayed silent. After a few minutes of nobody talking,she stood up from her desk and grabbed her backpack,ready to leave detention.
“Homecoming is tomorrow night.” Michelle looked up at her and Y/N swore she saw a smirk being created on the corner of her lips.
“So?” Y/N asked,not really getting her friend’s point.
"Ask him to be your date or something. Homecoming is the perfect chance,don’t you think? You have nothing to lose.“
MJ was right. She had to-at least-try. It was indeed the perfect chance. It was then or never. She was so sick of hiding.
“You’re a genius!” Y/N said,giving her friend a quick hug.
“I know…” Michelle snorted and waved at Y/N who exited the class,running.
Positive thoughts flooded her mind.Peter saying yes to her proposal,both dancing for hours the night of homecoming,finally telling him how she felt about him. All that weight she’d been carrying all those years would finally be lifted.
As soon as she got out of school,she saw Liz motioning her to come over. Y/N furrowed her eyebrows in confusion.What did she want?
“Hey Y/N!”She said sweetely. Y/N gave her a fake smile and nodded.
“I was just about to go home.Mind walking with me?” Liz asked.
Y/N didn’t really want to but just the thought of telling Peter about homecoming made her happy. The last thing she wanted was to worry about Liz. Besides,it was just one time. Her and Liz weren’t close.Sure,they had many same classes and they went to the same parties. But they never really hung out.Y/N didn’t know much about her. All she knew was that she was one of the most popular girls at school and that she had a huge crush on spiderman. Enough to not like her.
As they walked down the streets of Queens,Liz kept talking about things Y/N didn’t really care about,for example,how hard the organization of homecoming was. It wasn’t until the girl mentioned a familiar name that she actually listened.
“Did Peter tell you?”
Y/N stopped walking.
“Tell me what?” She dared to ask,impatience taking over her.
“That he’s my homecoming date?We met at the school hall earlier today and he asked me out. Isn’t it great?”
Y/N felt everything start tumbling down. All the happiness,the excitement…All gone. What was she thinking? Peter was in love with Liz,not her. She was just a friend. And that’s all she would be.
“I thought you guys were close?”
How stupid of her to think that he had gotten over Liz.
She felt like she couldn’t breathe.
“Y/N,are you listening?” Liz asked,waving in front of her face.
“Uh…Yeah,yeah…Amazing! You guys are gonna be so cute together…” She said pathetically as she got back to walking,faster than before.
All she wanted at that moment was to get home as soon as possible and cry. Hard.
She was broken.
