dating a hero
pairing: peter parker x f!reader (hurt/no comfort)
tw: angst with no happy ending, maybe gaslighting..?
summery: you have been dating peter parker for a while now. you two were neighbors and walked to school together everyday. you guys would do homework together at the library, but lately he’s been really distant...
a/n: I thought of this because none of peter parkers girlfriends lasted XD. we’ll see about MJ when NWH comes out
you sat but yourself at the library again. it was the third time he was late this week (not counting the day he didn't show up). you've tried calling him and it went straight to voice mail. people were giving yo u sympathetic glances but you couldn't care less. not when you were busy worried about him.
Peters been so distant lately and he’s not telling you what's wrong. honestly, you're just tried of feeling neglected, tired of going to bed with tears on your pillow because you never even see him anymore. you wanted your boyfriend back. these day he doesn't even feel like a friend. you decided you've had enough and you were going to end things if he doesn't explain what's going on.
“Hey! I'm so sorry I'm late, I had some things so take care of”
he glanced down at your head on the table. you slowly lifted your head and he could see your tear streaked face. something was up.
“hi peter... care to explain where you were?”
you tried to sound strong, secure. but the raspyness in your voice gave it away.
“y/n, I told you, its complicated, would you quit asking that every time I'm late?”
“well maybe if you weren't late so much I would! Honestly peter, I never see you anymore. are we even dating?”
Peters heart shattered. has it really been that bad? has he really been abandoning you so much you question this relationship? he want to tell you. he really did. but it would put you and other people in danger. he just couldn't live with that
“I TOLD you already! I can’t tell you! relationships are supposed to be build on trust. do you not trust me?”
“I do, of course I trust you! but you're also suppose to trust me! what holding you back from me so much that you cant even tell me what it is?”
“i-its for your own good...”
for your own good. how many times have you heard that one before. your parents, teachers, even some of your friends. you're just so sick and tired of feeling like everyone knows you better than yourself. you're not 6 anymore, you can decide what good for you or not”
“no, you don't get to say that peter! no one decides what good for me except for me!”
“I CANT JUST TELL YOU OK!”
he was conflicted. he was loosing you. he was loosing you the first time he was late because he had Spider-man duties. he was loosing you when he canceled on your second date because Mr. Stark needed up upstate. he was loosing you when he suddenly disappeared on another school field trip and had you worried for hours.
“fine. this is over.”
“NO! NO WAIT PLEASE! I PROMISE ILL BE BETTER! I PROMISE I WONT BE LATE AGAIN. PLEASE DONT LEAVE”
“then tell me where you were.”
the only thing that was heard in the dim lit library was peters soft sobs.
he was going to tell you, he was. he almost told you. but he could only stand there as you walked out with your stuff, to find someone better.
I guess in the end. heroes would always chose saving the would the world over loving you.
