Peter Quill is a senior history student who works at
the local coffee shop so he can get by. Thanks to his charming and care-free
personality, he attracts a lot of clients. One day, as Peter is bringing the
client their order, he bumps into a man. Of course, odds are against him
because he also spills coffee on that exact man. Quill immediately starts
apologizing and trying to get a stain of the man’s shirt. However, the said man
isn’t angry or yelling at Peter for his clumsiness. After such an awkward
encounter, Peter suggests paying for a dry cleaner, however, the man says that
getting a free coffee will be better. After hearing a stranger’s voice, chills
are running down Peter’s spine. He blames this wave of arousal on not getting
laid for almost 2 months.
After bringing man his free coffee, he asks Peter to
join him. In his mind, Peter is thanking whatever God there exists that his
shift just ended. The man introduces himself as Thor Odinson. Their
conversation mostly consists of Peter’s apologies and Thor’s nodding. When
Odinson finishes his coffee, he asks Peter out. The answer to the question of
why is simple- Thor just wants to know the man who ruined his shirt better.
Quill can’t believe that he just scored a date with a handsome stranger. Well,
not a stranger anymore since he knows his name now.
‘Peter is smart, he is funny, he
is the most beautiful person I have ever seen.' Those are the thoughts
that are running through Thor’s mind when he is near the man that ruined his
almost three hundred dollars shirt. However, Thor doesn’t mind that the shirt
is ruined now. The moment he saw Peter’s eyes, Thor knew that this college
student stole his heart. It’s their third date and Thor couldn’t be happier.
With Peter, he finally can open up, be himself again. Even though Odinson was
fun and all smiles outside, he was emotionally closed off. Thor swore that he
would never open up to anyone since his last relationship. Which ended up not
on a good note. However, Peter makes Thor reconsider this decision.
During their dates, their conversations mostly consist
of Peter’s stories. Quill tries to learn more about Thor, but Odinson only
tells him bits of his life. The only information Peter got out of Thor is that
he is 10 years older than Quill, is the CEO of Odinson Int. and doesn’t keep up
with his family. It doesn’t bother Peter, but since he is falling in love with
Thor, he wants to know him better.
One day, Peter gets called into the dean’s office. He
informs Quill, that they can’t wait anymore for Peter to pay off his previous
and current term of college. After some pleading, the dean gives Peter one more
week. If he doesn’t pay off his loan, he will be kicked out of college. Later
that day, when Peter meets up with Thor, the older man immediately senses
Quill’s bad mood. After some convincing from Thor, Peter tells Odinson
everything that happened at the dean’s office. When Thor heard Quill’s story,
he comes up with a little plan but doesn’t say anything to Peter. The next day,
Thor goes to Peter’s college and pays off his loan. For a moment, the Dean
doesn’t want a stranger to pay for a loan and not Peter. However, after some
convincing and a bit of threatening, he allows Thor to pay.
During the same week, Peter goes to the Dean to tell
that he won’t be able to pay off his loan, but he is hit with shocking
information. He learns that Thor paid everything off and that fuels a fire
inside of Peter. Yes, maybe the coffee shop doesn’t pay much, but that doesn’t
mean Peter needs Thor’s money. He calls Odinson and asks to meet up.
When they meet, there are no hugs or kisses on the
cheek like always, only Peter’s confrontation and anger. At some point, Quill
is yelling at Thor and explaining that he is not some charity case that Odinson
can invest in. Even though Peter loves Thor, he can’t look at him right now and
decides to leave. However, he stops in his tracks, when he hears Thor’s
confession. For the first time, finally one of them says “I love
you”. Odinson begs Peter to stay and forgive him since without him, Thor
will become a shell of himself again. Peter brings better in him, allows him to
be his old self again. Odinson acknowledges that he should have told Peter
about his plan.
Even though Peter is still angry at Thor, the love
confession struck him like thunder. Yes, Thor should have had a talk with Peter
about paying off his loan, but Peter understands that maybe Thor did it not
because he is rich and can just throw his money away. He did it because he
loves Peter and wants what better for him. Thor is still rambling when Peter
walks over to him and kisses him. It is enough to shut Odinson up. At this
moment, Peter is happy that he spilled that coffee on Thor. Although, he has to
come up with how Thor can make up for his mistake. However, Odinson already
knows how he is going to make up to Peter.
