I do not own Marvel or Twilight. Read and Review please thank you.
Professor Sterns lifted his eyes towards Bella, as she was stifling a giggle.
“Sorry.” She said once she took notice and cleared her throat.
“Something amuses you?”
She pressed her lips together and shook her head. Bella tapped on the paper pointing out the error to her lab partner. His eyes widened and he quickly erased it and shook his head.
“I can’t believe I put that.” He admitted as Professor Sterns went around picking the students lab results.
“You could say that.” He uttered in return with a shrug.
“So what is Electro and what was with that odd formula?”
He takes in a breath and shrugs.
“You know? I have no idea!” He says with a sort of high pitched tone to his voice.
“Huh… Well maybe if you didn’t fall asleep in class, Peter.”
“I did? Again?”
“It’s cool. I don’t even think he noticed this time.”
They both lift their eyes towards the professor.
“I’m crediting this assignment to your partner. Considering how you slept throughout most of my class.”
Bella grimaced on Peter’s behalf and Peter pinched his eyes shut.
“…dammit…” Peter groaned.
“He did help with most of the assignment, Professor Sterns.” Bella defends.
“Don’t, it’s cool…” Peter whispers.
“But you did help.”
Peter yawns and tiredly stretches his arms about. As he did this, he noticed the way Professor Stern was staring Bella down. Bella was oblivious. She was too busy jotting down today’s homework in her planner. This was something that Peter had taken notice, since the beginning of the year. He swore up and down that the professor had a crush on Bella. It was also obvious he was jealous of damn near any guy Bella talked to. Once the professor took notice of Peter eyeing him in return, he looked away. With a look of annoyance about his face. Peter chuckled to himself. He found it amusing, considering everyone knew she was engaged and to freaking Bruce Banner aka The Hulk. Everyone had seen his transformation on the news. In fact her fiancé usually picked her up from school every day.
“What’s so funny sleeping beauty?”
“Wait, you really think I’m beautiful?”
Bella softly giggles. Once again, Peter noticed how the professor was looking her way. He had a pen in his hand, as if he were jotting something down. But he was eyeing her. Once class was over, Professor Stern asked her to stay behind. Peter shrugged on this and grabbed his messenger bag and books on the way out.
As soon as they were alone Professor Stern rose from his seat and adjusted his tie. He leaned against his desk and folded his arms about his chest.
“You know Mr. Parker will never learn to take responsibility for his own actions, if you keep covering for him.”
“I don’t know, he seems pretty responsible to me!”
The Professor licks his teeth, looking to be in thought.
“Perhaps you need a more legit lab partner? One that isn’t so much of a slacker?”
“I’m just fine…”
“Hmmm. Well your lab partner isn’t exactly what I needed to discuss with you.
Bella looks to him in wonder.
“It seems you’re the only student of mine ready for clinicals. Or at least the only one in need of the hours. Meaning I have no choice, but to make this an after school event. I’ve already cleared things out with the hospital I used to work for. So there are no concerns there.”
“And how many hours and times a week are we talking?”
“Three at the most, I won’t push you any further than that. I know you have other classes to concern yourself with. I assume you’re eager to get your hours over with nevertheless. We’ll have plenty of time for that. For now, it’s mostly observation and taking notes on whatever you deem noteworthy.”
“So it’s just me and you?”
“I was sure I’d have more but they don’t have the credits needed quite yet. And my other students aren’t going into the medical field. They merely need this course for other purposes. I do apologize.”
“Um, no need. That’s fine.”
He nods again.
“Good deal. If you would like we’ll start next week perhaps Mondays, Tuesdays, and Thursdays. That gives you Wednesdays and Fridays to catch a break. I thought it best if we go directly after school. You might as well ride up there with me. I can take you on home from there.”
“You don’t have to do that. Bruce can pick me up.”
“I insist. I’m sure he’d appreciate the break. It’s on the way home anyhow.”
“Um ok. Sounds good then I suppose!’
“You’re doing exceptionally well so far!”
“Thank you, sir.”
He takes his seat again and waves her off. Bella grabs her things and heads on out.
“PETER!” She shouted as he leaped out from nowhere it seemed and frightened her. He died in laughter as she reached to her heart.
“You scared the shit out of me!”
He continues to chuckle as she chucks a book at him.
“Hey, that actually hurts!”
Bruce nodded towards them as he pulled up. Peter picked up Bella’s book and was handing it over. Bruce was in a black Ford f-100 Year 1980.
“Isn’t your fiancé a doctor?” Peter mutters.
“Yes…” She answers wondering where this was going.
“You’d think he’d pick something a bit more…”
Peter chuckles at the defensive tone to her voice.
“Well you know… doctor like.”
“And what exactly would that be?”
“Like something more flashy? Sporty even!”
“I picked it out you dick!”
“You picked it out?”
Peter presses his lips together and looks back to her then the truck.
“Cause it’s like my old Chevy from back home.”
“But it’s a Ford!”
“You think I don’t know that?!
“Well you are a girl…”
Bruce raises his brows.
“It was the closest thing they had!”
“Still it’s not a Chevy… like there’s a big difference. He should be teaching you these things.”
“OH shit!” Peter rushes over and beats her to the truck.
He gets inside and locks the door.
“Drive doc! Go back to 1958!”
Bruce looks to him oddly.
“Oh come on.”
Bella was trying to get into the truck.
“Let’s go doc! Haven’t you ever seen Back to The Future?!”
“No actually, I haven’t.”
Bella and Peter freeze at Bruce’s words.
“Wait, you haven’t seen Back To The Future?” They chorus.
“Oh no… Where has she been keeping you? What kind of a…”
“PETER BENJAMIN PARKER, GET YOUR ASS OUT OF OUR TRUCK!”
“Wait, how’d you know my middle name?! And why did you middle name me?!”
“Go on, Parker.” Bruce says behind a smirk.
“Dude, you think I’m going out there?! LOOK AT HER! HER EYES ARE GLOWING! AND I WAS WORRIED ABOUT MAKING YOU ANGRY!”
Peter does a double take.
“Holy shit, they really are!”
Bruce’s eyes widen. He hurriedly hops out of the truck and rushes over.
“Bella…” He hints.
He clears his throat.
“Eyes…” He whispers.
“What? But I’m not even mad… I mean not really…”
Bruce narrows his eyes on this. Bella quickly puts on her shades. Bruce takes her by the hand and walks her around. Bruce grabs Peter by the collar of his jacket and drags him out of the truck.
“So that’s a no to getting a ride home?”
Bruce says nothing as he gets Bella inside. Bruce damn near peels out of the parking lot. Bella looks upon him oddly.
“It’s ok, Bruce.”
He shakes his head.
“You need to keep your emotions in check.”
“I wasn’t even mad. I was just slightly irritated.”
Bruce doesn’t comment and looked to be in thought.
“We just have to be careful that’s all.”
“So what does that mean exactly?! I mean I am human, Bruce!”
Bruce cuts her a look of guilt. That this is all my fault look.
“Don’t… I mean it Bruce. I know that look!”
He remains pensive looking the rest of the way back to their apartment. Once they get inside, Bella sets down her mag and books. She took off her shades and slid them into her purse and set it on the table. Bruce places his keys on the table and takes off her jacket. He hangs it up along with his.
They’d picked out a one bedroom studio apartment. Bella had been going to school for about three almost four months now. They moved into the apartment and got the truck a couple months ago.
Bruce’s cell goes off and he looks to see it was Tony… again.
“You can’t avoid him for forever.”
Bruce shrugs and silences his phone.
“He’ll just end up at the door eventually.”
Tony had been calling nearly everyday for the past few months. He couldn’t help himself. He’d become eager to learn more about Bella. He’d even made hints about how maybe she too could he an Avenger. Bruce hadn’t let on to Bella anything about this. Bruce felt she had enough to worry about. It was bad enough he’d passed some of his radiation onto her. But dragging her into anything of the sort of life he had? No… He wouldn’t stand for it.
Bruce wrapped his arms around her.
“How was your day?”
“Not too bad… Yours?”
He shrugged. Bruce had been picking up a few hours at the hospital while she was at school. The rest of the time he spent working on projects for the Avengers.
“About the same.”
Bella kissed him and his hands traveled down along her ass.
“Did you behave today?”
She grinned at his sexual tenor, but didn’t answer. Bruce popped her on the rear and slightly lifted her skirt.
She shrugs and goes to “walk away”. Bruce flipped her over his shoulder, smacking her on the rear once more. He then placed her on the dining table. His lips returned to hers as he unbuttoned her blouse. He slipped it off her shoulders along with the straps to her bra. She bit down on her lower lip as he kissed along her shoulders.
“I really missed you.” He says a certain way and she softly giggles.
“Did you now?” He nods and unclasps her bra.
Bruce tosses her shirt and bra across the room. Bella arches back as Bruce sucks on her breasts. She cooed out in pleasure feeling the warmth of his tongue against her nipples. Bella ran her fingers through his hair as he continued. Bruce had pressed himself against her in longing. He moaned out feeling her hand working its way against his crotch. She teasingly fondled him through his slacks.
“Hmmm.” He hummed against her tongue and scooped her up.
They continuously kissed as he carried her to the bedroom. Bruce slid her panties out from under her skirt. Just the sight alone had him taking his tongue her pussy. Because of work, college, side stuff with the Avenger’s headquarters, and homework. They didn’t have as much time together. It’d been nearly a week, since they’d even had sex and Bruce was in suffering. Bella’s hips gyrated about as he licked her clit.
“Bruce…” She cried out and that only egged him on more.
“FUCK!” She shouted as he got more into it. Bruce chuckled to himself, but didn’t break stride.
Bruce unfastened his pants and freed himself during his eating out session. He kissed along her tummy and breasts as he made his way up. Bella ripped his shirt open and they heard the sound of buttons scattering about the floor.
“Oops…” She said behind a giggle.
Bruce cocked a brow, but had a smirk on his face.
“I liked that shirt.” He commented with a grunt. But instantly had her gasping out, as he drove his entire length in.
Bella ran her hands along his bare chest.
“I can buy you a new shirt.” She uttered, behind a moan.
Bruce felt her lips traveling along his neck and chest. That only ignited his drive. He thrust even harder now. Bella wrapped her arms and legs around him. He felt the signs of her release all over his cock.
“Hmmm, good girl…” He grunted out.
“You haven’t any idea just how crazy you drive me.” He whispered in her ear.
Her tongue teased the crevice of his neck and Bruce moaned out in a finish. They feverishly kissed as Bruce gave a few more strokes. Bruce rolled over with her still in his hold. He had her draped along his body, as he lay on his back.
“I love you.”
Bruce smiled and his fingers ran along her body.
“I love you too, baby.”
He narrows his eyes on this.
“Are you really questioning this?” He asks in a playful gist.
He chuckles and shakes his head.
“What are you up to?”
She fake gasps and rises.
“Why does that mean I have to be up to something?”
“Since when do you question how much I love you?”
She shrugs, trying to keep from laughing
“Since I have like 2 hours of homework.”
He cocks a brow, with confusion at first.
“It’s really hard.” She says in a whiny like expression.
Bruce dies in laughter.
“Now that I find hard to believe…”
“You could do my homework… While I shower and cook supper.”
“You’re going to do those two things at once?”
She rolls her eyes, with a bit of a smirk.
“No… I was going to shower, and then cook supper.”
“What are we having?”
“Pizza…” She murmurs.
He raises his brows and rolls her over on the bed, eyeing her.
“You’re making pizza?” He questions in a disbelieving tone.
“You laid out chicken.”
She shrugs and rolls out from under him. He watches as she heads to the bathroom.
“I’m not doing your homework.” He calls out.
“Not if I already know all the answers.”
“Then you shouldn’t have any issues.”
“I could get carpal tunnel syndrome, which may be bad for you!” She cruelly hints, as he pulls the bathroom door shut.
Bruce chuckles to himself and shakes his head.
“Bruce…” Bella said with a hint of guilt.
Seeing as how, he was cooking supper. He stuffs a piece of grilled chicken in her mouth. Bruce then pecks her on the lips and returns to cooking.
“Wow, that’s like really good. You really didn’t have to cook though.”
“I haven’t cooked in sometime actually. In fact the last time I cooked, was for you…” He says with this rather look of melancholy about him.
Neither liked thinking about that year apart. He had fried rice going as well. Bella’s tummy rumbled as she took in a whiff. She then sat down and started her homework. Before long, supper was ready. Bruce sat it on the table and they ate as she finished her homework. Just as Bella got to her very last question, her cellphone sounded. She looked to it oddly, seeing as how it was her mother.
She cleared her throat, before answering.
Bruce heard the awkwardness to Bella’s voice. He kept quiet though and cleared off the table.
“Mom?” Bruce heard Bella say in more panicked like mien.
Renee was sobbing on the other end.
“Are you alright?”
“No… no, I’m not.” Her mother cried.
Bella took in a breath.
“He… he left me!”
Bella swallowed back as she paced the living room.
“What do you mean, he left you mom?” Bella inquired as soothingly as possible.
“I mean he left! He was seeing someone else and just up and left me! She’s pregnant with his child and…”
Bella took in a breath, and held the phone from her ear, for a moment. The first thing that hit was guilt. That guilt was only brought on by the fact that Bella kept thinking… karma’s a bitch mom.
“I mean can you believe that?! Why would he do this to me?! How could he?! We’re not even divorced yet.”
“I’m sorry to hear that…” Bella forced out.
“What am I supposed to do now?!”
“I don’t know what to tell you mom, I’m sorry.”
“Why don’t you come stay with me for a while? Please? It’ll be like old times again.”
“Mom, I can’t do that. I’m sorry, but I…”
“What do you mean you can’t?! I’m your mother! Of course you can! I’d do the same for you!”
Bella half laughs and Renee caught this.
“Isabella Marie Swan!”
Bella rolled her eyes. She gritted her teeth, doing her best to remain civil.
“It’s not that I don’t want to. It’s just I’m entering my second semester of college and…”
“They can give you a few days off can’t they? Or better yet… Why don’t I call them sweetheart and have all your transcripts moved over. I’m back in Phoenix! Why don’t you move back home?! We could start over.”
Bella’s jaw dropped and she looked to the phone in amazement. Bruce saw her mouthing the words, what the fuck. Bruce tilted his head about seeing as how Bella’s eyes were now vibrantly glowing.
“Old times? You’d do the same for me? You honestly expect me to drop everything, run back home, because that’s what you want?!”
“Please Bella, I need you.”
“You need me? Dad and I needed you? Where were you?”
“I’ve always been there for you sweetheart, you know that?!”
“You must be mistaken me for someone else mom.”
“What in the world Isabella?!”
Bruce swallowed back as Bella’s entire face was flushed over, with anger. Tears ran down her cheeks.
“I haven’t seen you in damn near five years! The only time you ever give me, is a few brief moments on the phone! Then you let me know that you’re not coming to the wedding.”
“Now listen, Bella! I can come to the wedding now and…”
“Don’t even bother.” Bella crushes the phone with her bare hands.
Bruce looked to the remains of the phone, in surprise. Bella headed out the sliding door, leading to the small patio, they had. He took in a breath, wishing he knew what to say. He thought back to his father and shook his head. Bruce glanced out the door and saw Bella sitting at the patio table, in literal sobs. She quickly wiped her eyes as she heard Bruce sliding the door open. He made his way over and put a hand along her shoulder. This look of embarrassment came about her. Bruce took her hand and had her rising from the chair. Nothing knowing what else to do, he merely wrapped his arms around her. He swallowed back rather hard. Bella lost it. He held her even tighter as she was crying against his shoulder.
He narrowed his eyes in wonder.
“There’s nothing to be sorry about.”
“I just don’t get it. I truly don’t. She truly acted as all was right in the world between us! I didn’t become bitter about being dropped off at my father’s, until a year or so passed. And I began to realize that was pretty much it. My mother was done with me. It’s like she’d already done her part. She barely had time to even talk on the phone. It was always Phil this and that. We gotta run! I don’t have time! I’m in a hurry! At times I felt as though she were merely calling to see if I was alive. Once she heard my voice. That was all the indication she needed. I became nothing more than an afterthought.”
Bruce kissed the top of her head, and soothingly ran his hands, along her back. He cleared his throat.
“So… I see it’s time to shop for a new phone!”
She sighs but softly giggles against his chest. He lifted her chin with his fingers and wiped the remains of tears off her cheeks.
“It’s never easy. To this day, I still find it hard to overcome the things my father did. In some ways… you never truly do. You just learn to ride the tide so to speak.”
“One hell of a tide, doctor.”
“It sure is.” He says nodding in agreement.
Bruce sighs as Peter tapped on the window. He made a shoeing away motion, as he was kissing Bella. Peter chuckled and tapped on the window again.
“She’s going to be late, doc!”
Bella and Bruce were sighing now.
“I don’t suppose there’s any way you’ll let the “other guy” handle your new buddy?”
“Now Bruce it wouldn’t be a fair fight.”
“Hmmm…” He kisses her again and Peter opens the door.
Bruce cuts him a look of hell. Peter’s eyes widen.
“Um, hey doc!”
“Peter what’s your deal?”
“Just wanna talk, you know! Before class!” He says with eagerness.
Peter grabs her by the arm and starts to drag her out of the truck.
“Love you!” Peter calls over his shoulder back to Bruce.
“PETER! And to think you started off so shy!” She remarks.
When she first met Peter he rather kept to himself. He hardly even smiled or so it seemed. Now he wouldn’t shut up. Bella turns back and Bruce was shaking his head, waving her off. She blew Bruce a kiss and Peter continued to drag her away.
“So…” He said once they came to a stop.
He shrugs and looks around.
“What’s with you?”
Peter reached over and took off her shades.
“Hmmm…” He says glaring into her green eyes.
Bella grits her teeth.
“Can you give them back now?”
Peter shakes his head looking puzzled.
“Weren’t your eyes a nice shade of neon green yesterday?!”
“Peter…” Bella uttered looking around uncomfortably.
“So what was that exactly?”
“We’re going to be late.” She retorts and starts towards the building, just as the bell rings.
Peter sighs but tags along behind her. It wasn’t his intention to upset her or make her uncomfortable. Truth of the matter was he too had his secrets. He knew what it was like and just wanted Bella to feel as though she could confide in him, if she needed. What he wouldn’t give to have that! Sure Iron Man and Hulk’s secrets were out. Then again Dr. Banner didn’t have much choice. It just sort of happened. Tony Stark however just threw it out there. Peter wasn’t quite sure what to think of that. But there was no way he was willing to take that risk. He had his Aunt May and M.J to worry about. He wouldn’t take that kind of risk. It’d be different if he didn’t have loved ones to consider.
As of late however, Peter felt M.J was becoming more distant. She spent most of her time at the theater. She was the one constantly canceling their dates now. There were times he was beginning to second guess himself when it came to her. She seemed to be in another world in entirely. They both held things in different regards. Like Bruce and Bella they too were engaged. Only M.J put off the wedding for another year. He wasn’t sure why. But didn’t argue it. He was surprised she even said yes.
Once again Bella walks into class. Professor Stern straightens his tie like usual and nods directly upon her. Peter wondered if she even took notice, that Professor Stern only did that with her. Everyone else he pretty much shrugged off. Like usual they take their seats, spilt into partners and begin another day.
Bruce adjusted his glasses and grabbed the next patient’s chart. He was flipping through it as he knocked on the door. He read the name Anthony Edward Stark but it didn’t quite catch until he heard the familiar voice. Bruce rolled his eyes as he was flirting with one of the nurses. The moment he saw Bruce though he started this phony hacking and coughing bit.
“Please excuse us…” Bruce asked the nurse eyeing Tony down.
Tony waved and kicked his feet about. Once the nurse left the room, Bruce pulled the door shut.
“What do you want, Tony?” Bruce utters with a sigh and places the clipboard down.
Tony gets this wounded expression about his face.
“Is this how you greet all your patients, Dr. Banner?”
Bruce nods and takes off his glasses. He pinches the bridge of his nose as if he’s getting a migraine already.
“By the way white?! Who’d have thought it’s a great color on you!”
Bruce rolls his eyes.
“Um thanks. Now why are you really here?”
“Aren’t you going to check my vitals and ask what’s ails me?”
“I could always check your temp. Judging by the way you keep hacking though. Maybe we should go for a rectal reading rather than oral.”
“I thought you checked by ear now.”
Tony raises his brows on this and straightens his tie.
“Are you coming on to me, Dr. Banner?”
“Yes that’s a valid question. I’m starting to feel somewhat uncomfortable here. Maybe we should bring that nurse back in.”
“Tony, I really haven’t the time for this.”
Bruce grabs his clip board.
“You’re not even going to do a checkup?”
“There’s nothing wrong with you, other than you’re OCD, and a hypochondriac. Not a whole lot we can do for that. I say you’re well enough to go home, Mr. Stark!”
“What kind of a doctor are you?!” He mocks as if appalled.
“The kind that’s off the clock in 15 minutes, and will be picking up his fiancé. So you see Mr. Stark you’re wasting my time.”
Tony smirks at this.
“That’s right! You do have an incredibly hot college student waiting for you. How’s that going by the way?”
Bruce nods without another word. He grabs the chart and heads on out the door. Tony hurriedly hops off the hospital bed. He wrinkles his nose and uses some hand sanitizer on the way out.
Everyone around them turned to face them.
“Just let me see what she can do.”
Bruce sighs with sheer annoyance.
“Good day, Tony!” He calls out and heads on to the break room.
Tony shrugs and looks around to see everyone was staring at him. He presses lips together and nods to himself.
“You’d think he’d be all for a donation to the hospital! But noooo…” Tony throws his hands in the air.
He starts to storm out as if truly insulted. They all look to him puzzled.
“What’s with you?” Bella questions as she and Peter head out.
He shrugs with a disappointed look to his face. He was stuffing his cell phone back into his pocket.
“Did she cancel on you again?”
Peter groans to himself.
“She has to stay behind for rehearsals.”
Bella nodded wishing she knew what to say. Personally, she thought Mary Jane was a real piece of work. She’d met Aunt May and M.J. She thought the world of Aunt May. But couldn’t stand Mary Jane. She was a REAL drama queen in every which way. She never truly saw what Peter saw in her.
“You want a ride home?”
He sighs and lifts his eyes towards the truck. Bruce was already parked and waiting like usual.
“Actually do you think the doc would mind dropping me off at the theater?”
“I’m sure that can be arranged.”
“If nothing else I can at least be there to support her during rehearsals.”
“Better than nothing I suppose.”
Once they get into the truck, Bella pecks Bruce on the lips. Bruce noticed how Peter wasn’t acting like his usual annoying self.
“Everything alright?” Bruce inquired.
“Um yeah. Do you mind if we drop Peter off at the theater?”
“Not at all. I thought we could go out tonight for dinner anyhow.”
“Thanks doc.” Peter calls out rather softly as he gets situated in the back.
Bella takes in a breath. She felt horrible for Peter. The three of them sat in silence however on the way to the theater. Bruce parked out front.
“Thanks guys!” Peter called out and he grabbed his bags.
“Just a phone call away, Peter.” Bella reminds once he steps out of the truck.
He forces a smile.
“Thanks! You guys go out! Have fun! Later doc, thanks for the ride!”
Bruce nods. As soon as he’s inside, Bruce turns to Bella.
“So what was that about?”
“Well Bruce to be frank, his fiancé’s a bitch.”
“Ah…” He knew for Bella to say something like that. It had to be true. She was never one to really speak ill of anyone.
Bruce had only met MJ a handful of times if that. He’d helped Peter’s aunt with her water heater about a month ago. He and Bella ate with them that night and a few times since. He too thought a lot of Aunt May. And though he wouldn’t admit it, he saw a lot of himself in Peter. Especially, when he was Peter’s age. They both shared that knack for science and all things related. Which was what most of his and Peter’s conversations consisted of.
“By the way you should know I start clinicals Monday. So there’s no since in picking me up.”
“I’ll be riding up there with Professor Stern and he’s offered to give me a ride home after.”
Bruce narrowed his eyes on this.
“I could pick you up if you’d like.”
“He says it’s on the way home.” She says with a shrug.
Bruce nods, but something didn’t quite feel right about all this. Then again he didn’t want to sound like the asshole “green eyed” fiancé. Even if he truly was… Naturally, he didn’t like the idea of them spending so much time together. That only made him feel more like a jerk. Bruce swallowed it back deciding not to comment. That it might be best to let it go. Just as he’s about to put the truck back into drive.
“What the…” He hears Bella say.
The sound of her seatbelt flying back and her door opening, had Bruce cranking her direction.
He reared back at the sight. Bella was jogging up to Peter. His head was down and his hands were stuffed into his pockets. He was walking at a quickened pace himself. The doors to the theater flew open and out ran a familiar red headed girl. She was in tears. Behind her was some other guy. He was a lot bigger than Peter. More athletic looking and more attractive. He was adjusting his pants and zipping them up. Bruce grimaced on Peter’s behalf. The man wasn’t the only one adjusting…
“PETER!” MJ shouted.
Peter kept walking.
“What are you doing MJ?!” The other guy called out.
Bella gritted her teeth and looked at MJ in full on disbelief.
“PETER PLEASE! JUST TALK TO ME!” She screamed out.
“Really?!” The other guy scoffed bitterly.
Peter froze and shut his eyes for a moment.
“I have nothing to say to you.” He says with a broken heart.
Bruce inches his way over, seeing the look in the other man’s eyes. He was ready to start some trouble.
“You’re hardly being fair about this!”
She calls out. Bella half laughs in marvel of the nerve of this woman.
“You were never there! You were always running off!”
Peter nods and slowly turns.
“I’ve tried to be there! As of late you keep pushing me away! You told me for rehearsals! But you’re screwing Minute Man over there?! Just how long has this been going on? Were these so called rehearsals even real?!”
“COME ON PARKER! LOOK AT YOURSELF! THEN LOOK AT ME! YOU HONESTLY THINK YOU HAVE WHAT IT TAKES! IF YOU HAD BEEN KEEPING HER SATISFIED, SHE WOULDN’T HAVE COME TO ME. NOW WOULD SHE?!”
Bruce automatically stops him by roughly putting a hand up against his sternum. His eyes were glowing as he locked eyes with the man.
“I wouldn’t do that.”
He looked as though he were about to shit himself. Even Flash Thompson knew who the Hulk was. Bella shocks them all as she grabs MJ by the straps of her pretty aqua marine dress.
“He’s worth ten of him and you know it. That’s the sick part about all this. You don’t even deserve Peter.”
Bruce nods in agreement. Peter’s eyebrows were raised on this and he rubbed the back of his neck. He couldn’t believe that they were both defending him like this. No one had ever truly done that for him. He swallowed back rather hard.
Bella drops her hold and she looks back to Peter.
He nods as if afraid to even talk. Both Bruce and Bella’s eyes had that hue to them.
“Peter please. I… I’m sorry.”
“Oh shut it. By the way Broadway called. Their slut position’s already been filled. You just ran off the best thing you had going for you. Peter’s got a bright future ahead of him. You’ll probably end up working for some lousy night club!” Bella snaps.
Bruce choked back. Peter just remained there like a gargoyle, in shock. Bruce came up behind him and patted him on the back.
“Let’s go.” Bruce softly stated.
Dinner however couldn’t have been more awkward. Bella nor Bruce knew what to say exactly. Peter felt like the third wheel. He knew he was ruining their date night. But they insisted he tag along. They all rather nitpicked at their food. When it came time to drop Peter off his Aunt May waved them off. Bruce was taken back on the ride home. Bella curled up next to his shoulder.
“I love you.” She said softly, yet with a hint of sadness to her voice.
“I love you too, Bella baby.”
He narrowed his eyes on this and kissed the top of her head. He stopped at a red light. That’s when he took notice of Bella shedding a few tears of her own now. He took in a breath on this. He felt horrible for the situation as well, but he too hadn’t a clue what to say, or how to even act.
Once they arrived, they both sat in the truck for a moment, looking lost. Bruce finally cleared his throat after too long. He opened the door and took Bella’s hand, as she crawled on out on his side. After he shut the door, he pressed her up against the truck. He wiped any remaining tears.
Bella grabbed him by the collar of his shirt and heatedly kissed him. Her arms wrapped around him and he slightly lifted her off the ground. He had her in his hold and they continued their kissing session all the way back to their apartment. They were so into it in fact. That Bruce merely unlocked the door to the apartment. Once he shut it and locked it up, he eagerly lifted her up against the door. He was hiking her dress up and rubbing himself against her.
They froze however as they heard the clearing of a throat.
“Tony?!” Bella called out in surprise, as he was kicked back on their couch.
