“You're Not Even Blinking.” Peter Parker X Reader
Part two of “Just Kiss Me” where Ned is wondering why Peter is staring at the reader waaay more than usual during class. I just really wanted to do a thing where Peter gushed over and over about the kiss and he just seems so excited and happy about it and Ned’s all like OMG DUDE. Again, I really do hope you guys enjoy this even though it’s kinda short.
Spanish class was going faster than normal.
Peter assumed it was because of the view that had already been great previous, but was now 10x better thanks to last night.
He just couldn’t stop staring at how gorgeous Y/N was.
He couldn’t see her face from the back of the class, but he thought any side of her was pretty to look at, especially when she turned her head briefly to look at him, and realized he was watching her for who knows how long.
He looked away and blushed immediately, and Y/N did the same soon after.
They probably looked so sappy and stupid, but neither really cared.
Peter was so caught up, he didn’t even notice Ned saw the whole exchange.
Confused, Ned wrote a note down and passed it to Peter that said, “Dude, you’re not even blinking. What is up with you?” Peter held back a laugh and replied on the back,
“I’ll explain at lunch, just not right now.” Ned nodded to his friend and crumbled the note.
Then at lunch, Peter and Ned sat down, separated from everyone else, as usual, and Ned popped the question as soon as they sat down,
“So, what’s going on?”
Peter rubbed his hands together and maybe got a little bit too excited about sharing the news.
“Alright, so I’m just gonna tell you the whole story ok?” “Shoot.”
“So, I was out about last night, you know, and there was that storm and the power went out. I couldn’t see anything, and Y/N’s house was nearby, so…”
And Peter explained everything that happened, enthusiasm growing with each sentence he spoke till he reached he very end.
“And then I was like, ‘I’m not thinking about that stuff now’ and she’s like, ‘Then what are you thinking about’ and I said with zero thought, 'How badly I wanna kiss you right now’”
Ned’s eyes widened.
“DUDE!” “I know it seemed so stupid at the tim-”
“-No that’s awesome. Keep going.” Peter laughed and continued quickly.
“Okay, then she was like, 'What?’ and we kept on going on just saying, 'What’ until I started stuttering and freaking out, thinking like 'Oh crap, what do I do?’. Then Y/N turned the light off and I was like 'woah it’s dark’ and then…”
Peter’s long smile grew into a laugh.
He couldn’t finish.
“Then what! Cmon man!”
Ned nearly yelled at him.
After another couple seconds of giggling like a schoolgirl, Peter said, “Finally she’s like, 'Just kiss me’”
“YES!” Ned did yell that time, and some of the other tables looked at him funny, but he didn’t care.
He and Peter high-fived. “I’m guessing you did kiss her, right?”
“Well, first I was in shock just like, 'Are you sure’, just to make sure I was hearing her right, which I was was cause then she said 'Yeah’
“You did it?”
“I did it.”
Then Peter and Ned had to do their awesome totally-not-too-long secret handshake.
Peter felt a lot of pride in this moment, until Ned announced to himself, “Now Spider-Man’s had his first kiss.”
Peter looked at him weird.
“Who told you that was my first kiss?”
“Uh…You did. It was last year you said you’d never kissed anyone before.”
Peter was now embarrassed. “Oh.” “But still! I’m proud of you!” “Proud of what?”
another voice suddenly chimed in.
It was Y/N.
Ned did too.
Neither of them knew what to do.
Y/N looked at the two boys, waiting for an answer.
“What is Ned proud of you for?”
Peter had to come up with an excuse in 2.27 seconds or else this was gonna be way too awkward, but just as he was about to speak, Ned did it for him. “Making out for the first time.”
Peter snapped at him, standing up. “What…I wasn’t gonna lie like you would’ve.”
Meanwhile, Y/N was very, very perplexed.
“Tell me about your makeout session, yes.”
Peter was about ready to slap this person.
Y/N was laughing now and Peter just stood in place, unsure of whether he should leave or… nah, he’s just gonna leave.
Before he could however, to his surprise, Y/N said,
“You’re so cute,” before giving him a long and sweet kiss on his cheek.
“I’ll see you guys later.” she told Peter and Ned before leaving them alone again, and Peter sat back down, slightly mad and slightly flattered.
“What is wrong with you!” “Like I said, I was gonna tell the truth before you lied.”
“But now she probably thinks I’m some weird…nerd or something.”
Ned looked at him like, really? “Dude…you are a weird nerd. I am a weird nerd. WE HAVE ALWAYS BEEN WEIRD NERDS.” Peter sighed,
“But-” “This won’t change a thing. You worry so much. I mean, she obviously still thinks you’re cute so…”
Peter gave up because Ned was probably right.
He was already a nerd, yet Y/N still fell for him.
Though Peter came to this conclusion, the thought of that embarrassing situation still bothered him for the rest of the day, and when he went to bed that night.
He wasn’t going to admit that though.
