1K 50 90

"How does this look?" You were wearing a red and white striped long-sleeved baggy sweater partially tucked into the waist of your black jeans. You didn't know why you cared or why you were so nervous, but you couldn't help it.

"You look great, I don't get fuss." Wanda sat on the edge of your bed and shrugged.

"I don't know either." You slumped.

"Is it Patrick?"

"No, I don't care that he's coming." You looked down.

"It's Peter then." She nodded.

"It's stupid, but I haven't seen him all week and I feel guilty." You admitted, sitting next to her.

"What are you talking about? You've hung out with him all week!" She laughed.

"What? No, I haven't." You looked at her confused.

"Oh, that's right..." She widened her eyes and then thought quickly, "Why guilt?"

"I feel like we've really drifted this week."

Before she could answer your phone buzzed and she handed it to you.

"Thanks, sorry." You told her and checked the message.

Tony: Your people are arriving

"Shoot, I gotta go Wanda, thanks for the help!" You waved to her, leaving.

"Anytime, Y/n/n!" She smiled.

You rushed downstairs and greeted Peter and Ned with a wave.

"Hey, guys!"

"Hey!" Ned smiled, barely looking at you, being too entranced by his surrounds. Peter on the other hand, couldn't stop looking at you.

"Hey, Y/n, y-you look nice." He smiled.

"Thanks, so do you! Wanna head up?" You asked them.

"Shouldn't we wait for Patrick?" Ned reminded you.

"Oh! Right. Yeah. I don't know why I keep forgetting." You shook your head and when you looked at Peter he smiled.

"Hey, everybody!" Patrick suddenly called behind them Ned and Peter. Peter rolled his eyes and sighed as you waved to Damon to let him through. Damon flipped you the bird but let him in anyways.

"Patrick, hey!" You smiled, waving him over.

"Thanks for inviting me. I almost didn't make it because my dad's car wouldn't start, but it turned out to be something in the gas tank. Saw all of this sticky white stuff shoved in it." He cringed, "But he got it out and got me here." He shrugged with a smile.

"That's really weird." You laughed. Ned nudged Peter without you noticing and he gave him a look, "Should we head up?"

"Yeah, let's go." Ned nodded, excited.

Patrick started walking next to you and Peter was walking with Ned a few feet back.

"So, you live here now?" Patrick asked you, as you all walked to the living room.

"Yeah, Tony and Pepper kind of took me in."

"That's really cool of them." He smiled and then asked, "You're like really smart, right?"

"Some would say prodigy, but I like to take a humbler route and say genius." You joked, making everyone but Patrick laugh, "Why do you ask?"

"It'd be cool to have a smart girlfriend, plus you're like super hot." He smirked.

"Oh, uh, thanks." You forced a smile, but you didn't see all of the looks and whispers that were passing between Peter and Ned.

You finally got to the living room and gestured to the TV area.
