    Summary

    “I know you think the world revolves around you and whatever it is you want to do, but some of us have other things to do than wait around for a pretty boy who can’t tie his shoelaces,” she replies, still flicking through stacks of paper and God she’s the most beautiful thing he’s ever seen but also fuck her. 

    “Well, you clearly didn’t have anywhere to be, seeing as you’re still sitting here waiting for me to show up,” he replies, with a small smirk. “Is it because you think I’m pretty?” he asks, eyebrow raised. She takes a quick breath and he takes the time to be annoyed that someone with a side profile as perfect as hers didn’t like him before he even entered the room.

    Summary

    Pain, Peter’s learned, is relative.

    Subjective. Fleeting. Impossible to measure.

    He knew from his biology classes that pain was less a feeling but more of a chemical— neurons traveling together and communicating. Brain synapses signaling to each other what is, what was, what will be.

    Pain is intangible, objectively speaking.

    Right up until the moment it isn’t.

    Summary

    “No,” she says between gasps of air, kicking him with her socked feet. But he pulls back to look at her and watches as her cheeks flush as she tries to level out her breathing and her eyes find him. “I’m just saying… we’re probably soul mates.”

    His face splits in half with his smile and he darts forwards to kiss her quickly. “I hope so; I’ve never been in love like I am with you.”

    The door clicks open and, “I don’t think you wanna be soul mates.”

    Ugh. Peter drops his forehead onto Gwen’s shoulder as her roommate walks in. She’s not rude per se, and she seems to never want to be around him and Gwen but there’s something about her that gets under his skin.

    “And why’s that Michelle?” he asks, moving to a sitting position on the couch as opposed to lying over his girlfriend.

    Summary

    Peter Parker comes back into Michelle’s life like this:

    She receives a phone call at two in the morning from his number. She has received early morning drunk calls from ex-boyfriends before, and her first instinct is to ignore the call and go back to sleep. But a faint whisper of unease in the back of her mind stops her, because this is Peter and there is a good chance—a very, very good chance—that he’s calling because he’s bleeding to death in an alley somewhere.

    She answers the call. “Peter?”

    It is not Peter. It’s a girl who replies, screaming into Michelle’s ear, hysterical.

    Summary

    It's not like she's never seen the skyline before. But it's never been like this, all quiet and still and majestic.

    She finally understands landscapes. Because for a moment the city isn't just a collection of buildings. It's a living, breathing thing, pulsing with energy, radiating confidence and power and so much more.

    She glances over at him but he's looking at her, smiling with this energy, this excited joy. She finally understands what tonight is about. It's not really a painting, it's him and what it means to be friends with Peter Parker. She feels like she understands something more about him, another piece to his ever-evolving puzzle.
