Peter had passed out.
Halfway through their journey home, Peter had simply shut his eyes and his head had lolled to the side, causing Nicole to brake in the middle of the air as she tried to wake him up. But nothing seemed to be working, and so here she was, standing on a rooftop in Queens, with Spider-Man on her shoulders, trying to figure out what to do.
Peter's head was on her shoulder as his left arm flopped aimlessly. Nicole looked around into the night, uncertain, unsure of what to do.
"What am I supposed to do now? Okay, think Nicole, think," She mumbled under her breath, while trying to think of a plan. "Grant, what should I do? I don't know, I can't think of anything."
"Miss Stacy's apartment is only a block away from here," Grant told her, his voice as robotic as always. "I would advise you to go there."
"Oh, Gwen!" Nicole said with a burst of energy. "Yeah, she can help us. Right?"
She had almost turned to Peter when she remembered that he was still passed out. Thankfully, he was still breathing so half her worry was eliminated. But she was still scared for him, remembering how bad Electro's attacks were.
"Peter? Spidey? You gonna wake up?" Nicole whispered. No reply. He was definitely passed out like a rock. "Okay, okay, so I need to go to Gwen's. Phew, cool."
She took in a deep breath before she released it, preparing herself to take flight with a passed out Peter in her arms. She let out a soft giggle at the alliteration. Passed out Peter. It sounded hilarious to her, but it was also a way for her to be distracted from the stress she was feeling. In the blink of an eye, she was airborne, Spider-Man in her arms, as she flew in the direction of Gwen's home, hoping that her best friend was awake.
Buildings passed by them in the blur as the faint glow from the moon provided Nicole with enough light to navigate. Streets seemed to get familiar every passing second. In a few minutes, she saw Gwen's building in front of her.
'Please be up. Please be up.' Nicole silently wished. She continued flying in the direction of Gwen's apartment, careful to keep herself hidden (to a certain extent). She flew right up to the building till she was hovering next to Gwen's window, arm around Peter's waist, basically hugging the boy.
"Okay, here goes nothing," Nicole flew a little bit closer, rapping the window. The curtains were drawn, but through the slits between them, she could see that the light was coming. Again, please be up, Gwen.
The curtains were swiftly drawn apart and Gwen's face appeared in the window. Her eyes widened considerably and her mouth fell open, presumably to let out a shriek. Nicole quickly waved her free hand, slicing it through the air and motioning for her to be quiet and to open the window. Gwen didn't delay for a second as she threw the window open.
