I do not own Marvel or Twilight. Please read and then leave your review! 😦 totally got ringed out for this chapter chillax peeps. It’s a Peter/Bella pairing for a reason… just hold on. Man… wipes sweat off brow. I know what I’m doing… just breathe!
Peter starts to roll over. Bella stops him as she braces her hands upon his shoulders.
“Lay back down. I just got those set.”
He looks down to see he was; only in a pair of boxers. Bella had his ribs taped. Peter was also back in his room. He also took notice that Bella was all in black. Her pants, shoes, even had on a black hoodie. She leaned back in his computer chair. Her hair was a mess and her eyes were sunken in.
Peter narrowed his eyes.
“Are you alright?”
Bella looks upon him oddly.
“You’re the one with the broken ribs. Even though, when I checked a couple hours ago; it already looked somewhat better. That’s not to say you won’t be sore. It’s crazy. It’s gotta be whatever’s taken over our bodies. You shouldn’t be healing that fast.”
“Look, I gotta go Charlie’s going to freak as it is. I didn’t come home for supper last night.” She sighs.
“I didn’t come home, at all.”
They both look to the time. It was three am.
“Truth of the matter was I forgot. I ate with Mike and lost track of time; after everything that took place.”
“And what about that guy?”
Peter knew he was being an idiot, but he couldn’t help himself. He was writhing with jealousy. The Human Torch aka Johnny Storm wanted HIS girl and in a bad way. Spiderman might be cool enough to go up against the Human Torch even with his ego. Spiderman at the moment was more popular and wider known. However, how does nerd boy Peter Parker stand against freaking Johnny Storm. The guy was the ultimate fantasy for most women. He highly doubted, that Bella didn’t see what they saw. He was known for being the bad boy. It was also no secret, he could damn near have any woman he wanted. That’s what had Peter on edge. Johnny wanted BELLA! These thoughts came rushing through so naturally, dick side of Peter Parker shined through yet again. When will he ever LEARN?!
“I think we know damn well what guy, Bella. Don’t even pretend that with me.”
She looks to him as if to say well fuck you. I should have left your sorry ass; in the middle of the road!
“Oh you mean him…” She says as if all dreamy eyed. Just to piss him off and it was working.
He rolls his eyes.
“So what exactly, were you saying about us Bella?”
She shakes her head.
“I was talking to Mike, Peter… just getting a few things off my chest.”
“So, you just go around talking about our personal issues? You don’t come to me about it. You go to Mike or some hot guy you’ve seen on TV?!”
“Oh my God! You truly are something else!”
“I’m not the one voicing our private issues to the world.”
“I wasn’t aware that Mike Newton was the world! And you haven’t any room to talk PARKER!”
Peter grits his teeth; as the pain was coursing through him.
Bella sighs taking notice.
“I better go…” She whispers.
She starts to crawl out the window.
“Just… try and take care of yourself… Will you?”
He nods, but noticed how she wouldn’t even look at him. She kept her head down, her voice soft. Bella leaps out of the window.
Peter shut his eyes for a moment. He wasn’t sure how to fix any of this. He scooted back in the bed. He couldn’t believe that even after all this. Bella was still taking care of him.
“Freeze…” She winces at the sound of his voice.
Charlie cuts on the lamp in the living room. Bella takes in a breath as he looks upon her.
“Jesus kid, you look as though you’ve been through the ringer.”
Her body hurt from head to toe. Whatever that creature was that attacked them; got some pretty good hits in. Charlie comes to his feet and tiredly rubs his face.
“You didn’t call. You didn’t come home for supper. I actually cooked for once and on the grill. I waited for two damn hours! Now I want to know what the hell is going on and I want to know NOW!”
“Dad please, I’m sorry. I guess time just got away from me.”
“You got school in less than four hours. You got to be up in three! This has got to stop Bells! You’re just a kid. You’ve no business being out this late! NONE WHATSOEVER!”
“Dad I’m 17!”
“DON’T YOU EVEN DARE THROUGH THAT IN MY DAMN FACE! YOU LIVE UNDER MY ROOF! THEREFORE, IT’S MY RULES! IF YOU DON’T LIKE IT WELL TOO DAMN BAD! NOW IT TAKES A LOT TO PISS ME OFF AND YOU KNOW IT! YOU’VE CROSSED A LINE! YOU’VE BEEN DISRESPECTFUL, YOU’VE HAD A FOUL MOUTH AS OF LATE, AND YOU’RE COMING IN AT WEE HOURS OF THE MORNING. YOU ARE STILL JUST A KID BELLS! YOU STILL HAVE ONE MORE YEAR, BEFORE YOU EVEN GRADUATE! ONE MORE YEAR IN THIS HOUSE UNDER MY SUPERVISION! UNDER MY ROOF! SO YEAH LIKE IT OR NOT KID YOU WILL DO AS YOU’RE TOLD WHEN YOU’RE TOLD! I LOVE YOU, BUT YOU’RE NOT GOING TO KEEP THIS UP. I DEFENDED YOU AT SCHOOL. I’VE HAD YOUR BACK, THROUGH EVERYTHING WE’VE FACED. I KNOW YOU’VE BEEN THROUGH A GREAT DEAL SWEETHEART AND FOR THAT I’M SORRY! I TRULY AM! I’M SORRY ABOUT YOUR MOTHER AND PHIL! I’M SORRY ABOUT THE CULLENS AND HOW YOU WERE DONE! I’M TRYING BELLS I REALLY AM! I KNOW I SUCK, AT THIS WHOLE FATHER THING! BUT I’M SICK AND TIRED OF WORRYING ABOUT YOU EVERY FUCKING NIGHT! I NEVER KNOW IF YOU’RE DEAD OR ALIVE! I HAVEN’T A CLUE WHERE YOU ARE! DAMMIT KIDDO, YOU’RE KILLING ME!”
Bella jumps as he punches through the wall. He bowls over for a moment. He pinches his eyes shut.
“You’re grounded until further notice. You will be home Sunday through Thursday by 9 pm! Friday and Saturday no later than Midnight. But for now… NOTHING no dates with that Parker kid either. I wouldn’t doubt if he’s the reason!”
Bella flinches at this, but remains quiet. Charlie takes notice and he takes in a breath.
“I can’t even imagine kid. I can’t even begin…”
She looks to him oddly. Charlie makes his way over. He wraps his arms around her.
“I know you feel as though; the weight of the world is on your shoulders. But it doesn’t have to be. Bells, don’t throw away your childhood just yet. There’s plenty of time for that responsibility later. Just be a damn kid. I’m still fighting in your corner kiddo. Never forget that.”
Bella breaks down in big sobs. Charlie swallows back.
“I got ya kid. I got ya.”
His hold gets tighter. Charlie kisses the top of his daughter’s head. He wipes a few stray tears of his own. He doesn’t let go. Bella cries herself to sleep and Charlie carries her to bed. He tucks her in and turns out the lights. Charlie pulls her door too. He makes his way back downstairs. He pulls out a beer from the fridge. He heads outside and drinks it from the porch.
Peter and Bella kept quiet most of the day. Mike had stayed home sick with the flu. Bella kept it in mind, to bring him some soup or something later. Bella knew his dad would be working and Mike could probably use the company. Bella and Peter sat beside one another at lunch. Still, hardly anything was said. Bella’s clothing remained dreary and dark. Her eyes were blood shot. Peter hated himself. He knew this was all because of him. He’d done this to her.
Once school was over. Peter was determined to somehow make amends. To do anything something to win her back. He couldn’t stand this. He clears his throat as they come out of the building for the end of the day.
“Could I at least, take you for a hotdog or something?”
Bella sighs and looks to her cellphone for the time.
“I don’t know about that Peter…”
He shuts his eyes.
“Bella, please… just…”
“I’m grounded Peter…”
“I just keep screwing up don’t I?” He utters in misery.
“It’s not your fault Peter… Look, I got to get something for Mike and Charlie, for Christmas. If you wanna come, that’s fine. But I have to head home directly.”
“Do you want me to go?”
She takes his hand.
“Don’t be a dumb ass Peter.”
He half smiles. They head on into town. They ate a hotdog and drank a soda. Peter even managed to wrap his arm around her; without getting slapped. He snuck in a kiss upon her forehead. He was thankful to notice; Bella snuggling up against him a couple times. Nevertheless, their time was limited. She looked to her cellphone and sighed.
“I better get that shopping done and head back. I’m actually not supposed to be going on dates.”
Peter nods realizing, just how badly he screwed up. Not just with his girlfriend, but Charlie as well. He never meant to get Bella in trouble and placed on lockdown. He’s thinking about these things; as he opens the door for her to one of the shops. Bella froze and looked downright ill. Her skin even went solid white. Peter turned to see what she was looking at. He literally flinched and reared back in a stumbling fashion. He felt as though he just got socked in the gut repeatedly. It just kept happening over and over. Nonstop, this was NEVER ENDING THIS NIGHTMARE OF LIVING HELL!
“Bella…” He pleaded reaching out to her.
She shut her eyes for a moment. This was the same store that was known for all the Spiderman merchandise. The same one where he first bought her the doll. Only now… it was Blackcat and Spiderman. Figurines, T-shirts, even posters were all over the place. It was of that particular kiss. The women’s shirts had little hearts all around it. Some of them even said Spiderman’s first love. Some others had some messages as well. Bella’s hand went to her heart. She took a few steps back out of the shop. She stepped outside. A full anxiety attack hit.
“Bella…” He tried again even more desperate.
“No one even knows who Arachnia is yet… But everyone knows Spiderman’s new love interest.” He hears her mutter; as she continues to stumble back against the wall.
“Bella please… you know that’s not true.”
She sucks back a breath. Her cheeks had a nice red hue to them. The rest of her body still pale complected. He reached out to her again. She shook her head. Tears were streaming down her face.
“That should have been us… Some other woman, not only stole my kiss. She stole everything Arachnia and Spiderman were about. That should be them Peter!” Peter’s eyes widened as her clothing suddenly got even darker. Her brunette hair went pitch black.
“Bella… I think something’s wrong…”
“You’re god damn right it is!” Her entire body shook.
“I was there for you. Both of you! The hell with you both! I’m done. There is only so much I can take. You’re a free man now. “
Peter’s heart sank. Bella took off into an alley she shot off her web. Peter felt ill as her other persona came out. Only the suit was red and black. She looked like a black widow spider! Damn sure ready to take his HEAD! He thought miserably.
Bella continued about the city. She felt as though she’d be sick. Her heart was going ninety to nothing. She ducked into a shadow of a building. She crouched down bringing her knees to her chest. Bella rocked back in forth in tears. The image all over again haunted her mind.
“Hey you alright?”
Bella quickly wipes her face and looks around.
“What are you doing up here?”
He shrugs and puts his hands upon his waist.
“Just passing by and saw you. Thought you could use some company.”
“I’m fine, thanks.” She says half sarcastically.
She comes to her feet.
“Wasn’t your suit red and yellow?” He questions with a cocked brow.
She narrows her eyes and looks down to see the yellow parts were now black. She sighs with irritation.
“It seems to have a mind of it’s own.” She mumbles.
He looks to her confused.
“Look, I was about to grab me a bite to eat. Would you like to join me?”
He warmly smiles and offers a hand.
“Come on now. No strings attached. Just dinner…”
“I already ate. And I’m actually about to head home.”
He sighs with disappointment.
“Perhaps, some other time?”
She fires off a web.
“Can I have a real name now?”
She looks back to Johnny.
He smiles genuinely.
“Wow, you gave me your real name…”
She looks to him puzzled.
He grins again.
“Truth was I already knew. I heard your friend Mike… refer to you as this.”
She narrows her eyes upon Johnny.
“Were you listening to our entire conversation?!’
“Only the interesting parts…” He says with shrug.
“Ugh… that was private Johnny.”
“Then next time don’t announce it; as though it were bulletin news!”
Her jaw drops.
“I so did NOT!”
He chuckles. She half growls and takes off. He wiggles his brows as he watches her zip around the city.
“Damn she’s hot.” He sighs.
“Lucky bastard…” He mutters thinking of Spiderman.
However, once Johnny gets into town. He too happens to take notice of the new Spiderman merchandise as well. He starts to piece it altogether. He remembered her saying how she felt cheated. He raised his brows and picked up of the shirts.
“That girl’s hot alright, but that’s certainly not Arachnia. Now are you?”
He looks around the shop shaking his head.
“This guy’s an idiot!”
He starts laughing and rubbing the back of his neck.
“Hell, he might as well of handed her right over to me! This’ll be a piece of cake now! You don’t want her buddy, I’ll sure as hell take her. You just keep sucking face. I’ll take over from here.” He does that guy fist pump thing and heads out of the shop, with a huge grin planted on his face.
“Are you alright Peter dear?”
Peter nods as Aunt May places the food on the table. He clears his throat.
“I believe our plans with the Swan’s have been canceled for Saturday.”
She looks to Peter in wonder.
“Oh? And why’s that?”
He lowers his head; shaking it.
“We just broke up.”
Aunt May’s jaw drops and she quickly covers her mouth in utter surprise.
He nods looking broken.
“But you two can’t break up. You’re entirely too cute together. You’re meant to be!”
Peter looks upon his aunt with raised brows.
“You’re not going to do any better than that Swan girl. She’s a peach and a half! Those are hard to come by Peter!”
“She dumped me…” He made clear.
His aunt even looked more confused. It were as though she had expected it to be the other way around for some reason.
“Well now why would she do that?”
Because, Spiderman’s an asshole, Blackcat’s a slut, and life just sucks in general? He found himself thinking bitterly.
“Because I deserved it. End of story, it’s over!”
“Now you listen to me Peter!” He noticed how his aunt actually looked pissed.
“You’re not giving up. Not that easily. You had best start coming up with something to get her back! I like her and you two are perfect for each other. She treats you right Peter! She’s one of the good ones. She’s worth fighting for.”
“It’s not that easy.”
“No one ever said it was. But if you keep up with defeated attitude! You’ve already lost!”
It was never like his aunt to act like this. He was beginning to realize he wasn’t the only one drawn to Bella. She just had a way about her. What’s not to like? Yet, he still managed to somehow screw it all up.
Peter led the prayer, before they ate. He had to force the food, within his mouth. Everything tasted like cardboard. Only it had nothing to do with his aunt’s cooking. She was the best there was. No it had to do with the fact; that his life was spiraling down and rapidly. Peter wasn’t sure if he could even catch himself, before he slammed head first into the bare bottom of nothingness. He kept seeing Bella’s sunken and bloodshot eyes. Knowing he was the cause. He was the reason for her falling apart. The girl had gone damn near gothic.
“Supper was good Bells.”
She forces a smile. Before she’d fixed supper she’d taken Mike some soup. She also had set out some Gatorade and medicine for easy access. The poor guy was sicker than a dog.
“Glad you liked it.”
He wipes his face with a napkin. Bella gathers the dishes and starts to wash them. Charlie’s phone rings. Bella answers it. It was the office asking for Charlie. Bella handed her dad the phone.
“On my way.” He hangs up and grabs his gun and badge.
“Sorry Bells, I’ve been called in. There’s some sort of issue down town. Stay home and lock the doors.”
Bella nodded, but wondered what was going on. Charlie kissed her forehead and rushed out the door. Bella tried to do as Charlie told her. She went to her room and tried to focus on her homework. She forced herself not to look towards a certain room. In fact she had kept her curtain closed. Her window was locked. She shut her eyes for a moment and went back to her homework. Only when she looked upon her hand; she realized she was in Arachnia persona. She shook her head. Her cellphone rang. She answered it as she came to her feet.
She sighed with irritation.
She heard her father and Mike in the background. Her heart sank. The familiar laugh came over the phone.
“Didn’t I say you would die first?”
Bella shut her eyes the room was spinning on her.
“You have 10 minutes or daddy and your bff will DIE!”
The line went dead. Arachnia didn’t waste another second.
Aunt May turned on the news after supper. Peter was helping with the dishes. Peter froze and the white plate he had in his hand fell. It shattered amongst the ground. Aunt May turned to him.
“Isn’t that Bella’s father and your friend from school?”
He nodded looking bleak. Aunt May gasped back as the creature appeared on the screen. They were calling him Carnage. The very one Spiderman, Arachnia, and Human Torch were fighting.
“No…” Peter whispered in pure panic; as Arachnia came into view now. She was facing Carnage on her own! She was taking each hit it gave towards her father and Mike!
“I have to go!”
His aunt turned to argue this. Only to see he was nowhere in sight. She only heard the slamming of the front door.
Arachnia ground her teeth together. She was doing everything in her power, to protect her Charlie and Mike. They were in an abandoned building; that used to be a bank. He had Charlie and Mike inside a vault. They were side by side pinned to the wall, with metal stakes of some sort. They were being held up by the shoulder sleeves of their jackets and shirts. Both looked to have taken a beating.
“Leave them alone! You said you wanted me! SO TAKE ME!” She growls.
“I thought you’d never ask.” He says in a curt demented tone.
She gasps out as a tendril wraps around her. He takes off with her in his clutch.
Spiderman arrives only to see Charlie and Mike. There was no sign of Carnage or Arachnia. He quickly released the both of them. He thoroughly checked them over. Mike had taken the worst of the beating. He also had an even higher temp now. He passed out in Spiderman’s hold. Spiderman handed him off to Charlie. He placed his hand on Charlie’s shoulder.
“Take him to the county hospital. Stick together!”
Charlie looked to Spiderman.
“You about ready to get your head out of your ass, son?”
Spiderman looked to Charlie oddly. He hadn’t time to think on what he’d just said. He merely sighed and scampered off to find Arachnia.
“Not so fast!”
Carnage turns towards Human Torch.
“That just so happens to be MY Spidergirl!” Human Torch says with complete certainty.
Carnage snarls back. Arachnia uses her webbing to slingshot herself out of his hold. She turns back to Human Torch.
He smiles and nods.
“JOHNNY!” She yells, as a tendril comes crashing down on him.
He starts to plummet to the ground. He was knocked out of his fiery blaze. She quickly scoops him up and swings them both onto another building. She’s got him cradled in her arms, like you would a baby. He blinks a few times. He then rubs his head up against her breast.
“Hmm, my hero.”
“UGH!” She drops him where they stand. She heads back to Carnage.
Arachnia fires around Carnage’s throat. She begins to loop around and dodges his attacks. He continued to make sharp or blunt objects; in which to hit her with. She was determined. Arachnia went as quick as possible. She flung out her other wrists sending a web onto a nearby sky scrapper. She stretched out her body between the building and Carnage himself. She used the building to help her maneuver and yank the webbing around his neck. She began to choke him. She ground her teeth together, using everything she had.
Spiderman finally found them and saw what was taking place from a distance. He could see Carnage and Arachnia. He could see what she was attempting to achieve and thought it a wise decision. He was impressed. Even more so that it seemed to be working. Carnage reached to his throat. Only Spiderman freaked as he ripped the webbing off his neck. He swiftly made a set of claws with one of his bloody show of tendrils and they ran right across Arachnia’s chest, before he could even make it there. She came crashing down. He dived after her only to take notice of someone else standing directly beneath her. It was Johnny. He caught her and brought her to his chest. Spiderman landed beside them. He winced at the bloody show. This thing was strong enough to even damage whatever they had protecting them. Johnny applied pressure to her wounds.
“You can hand her off to me now.” Spiderman said holding out his arms.
“Nah, I got this!”
“Hand her off this once! I mean it Matchstick. You do not wish to test me!L
“Cute, stupid, but cute I suppose. You had your chance you screwed up buddy. Now it’s my turn. The only difference is I’m not a cheating jerkoff!”
“I NEVER CHEATED DAMMIT! STAY OUT OF OUR BUSINESS!”
“SHE IS MY BUSINESS NOW!”
“THE HELL SHE IS! SHE’S NOT YOURS!” Spiderman goes to take Arachnia from his hold.
“I’M NO ONE’S SO BOTH OF YOU FUCK OFF!” She snaps.
He and Spiderman however, get grabbed and flung about as if they were merely pesky insects. Arachnia’s grabbed and lifted back into the air.
“Do you remember me?” Carnage bellowed.
He laughed and took his long pointed tongue. He licked her entire body with it. He had her dangling now by one leg. He brought her up to his mouth.
“So sweet… I could eat you alive! I think I will!” He thunders in his hair crawling monstrous voice.
Arachnia fired off with both wrists. She broke out of his hold as she sent herself spiraling into the sky. Human Torch and Spiderman joined in attacking Carnage. As Arachnia came back down she landed on Carnage’s back. She jammed her fist into the base of his neck. She was hoping for some sort of attempt; to break into whatever this was and hit some flesh. Only, whatever it was started to stick to her gradually, it was swallowing her inside. She gasped out with wide eyes. It was Eddie Brock. She was pressed up against his chest now; suffocating as the entity began to cover the both of them whole. Eddie smiled.
“Welcome to my hell!” He rumbles sadistically.
He dug his nails into her neck as he began to choke her.
The boys heard Arachnia scream out, but neither could find her. Spiderman tilted his head and listened closer.
“STOP!” Spiderman yelled at Human Torch. He wrapped a web around him and snatched him back as he was sailing full throttle for Carnage.
“She’s inside there! If you attack now; you could kill her Matchstick!”
Arachnia twirled her body about inside. She began to try and claw her way out. There was only so much she could do. She was only able to break through enough to catch a breath. Then she was sucked right back in.
“All of this, because I just wasn’t that into you?! You were the one harassing ME remember?! She finally snaps.
She twirls back around and punches Eddie in the face.
“You son of a bitch! You came after my friend and father. All because, you were fucking jealous and pathetic? How sick can you be?!” She forces out gasping for air.
Eddie narrowed his eyes. He squeezed even tighter around her throat.
“Want to find out?! I can show you! I was going to merely end your very existence and get it over with. I’ve changed my mind! I want you to suffer, the way you made me suffer! I shall take out all of Brooklyn! Then I’m going after your precious Spiderman and your new little boyfriend NEXT! THEN I WILL COME AFTER YOUR FATHER AND FRIEND. AFTER YOU’VE WATCHED EVERYONE DIE AT MY HANDS. I WILL TAKE YOU AND RIP YOU APART LIKE THE FUCKING LITTLE RAGGEDY ANN BITCH YOU ARE. YOU’RE NOTHING! IT’S TIME YOU’VE COME INTO TERMS WITH THAT. YOU ARE EXPENDABLE! YOUNEED TO BE TAUGHT SOME MANNERS! YOU DON’T PLAY WITH A MAN AND HIS FEELINGS! THERE ARE CONSEQUENCES. BECAUSE OF YOU NOW ALL OF BROOKLYN AND THE REST OF NEW YORK WILL DIE! YOU WILL HAVE THIS ON YOUR CONSCIENCE. MANY WILL DIE BECAUSE OF YOUR CRUELTY IN SOMETHING YOU DEEMED TO BE FUNNY. WELL WHO’S LAUGHING NOW BITCH?!”
Eddie himself now sucks back a breath. He drops his hold on her neck. He pulls at his hair and shrieks out on top of his lungs. Right in Arachnia’s face. The suit begins to take them both back over. She begins to panic once she realizes what its doing. It begins to squeeze her and Eddie together. Arachnia claws through yet again, only punching a single hand through. She takes advantage of the situation and fires off a web praying it hits something she can use. She couldn’t see. She grabs onto it for dear life. As she’s finally pulled away from the entity; that has taken over Eddie Brock.
Arachnia finds herself still choking for a breath. Her eyes watered. She wheezed. Her eyes were batting as she tried to stay awake. She slung out another shot of web. Her vision however, went blurry. She couldn’t even see where she was going. She came tumbling onto a cab. The driver slammed on his brakes. She rolled off the car onto the pavement. A crowd began to surround New York’s newest addition.
“Well don’t just stand there help her!” A woman cried from afar.
A man nodded and went to scoop her up
Spiderman’s takes notice and his heart drops.
“No Bella…” He whispered in agony.
Human Torch looked over as well. Carnage had taken off. Spiderman started towards her only to feel a hand upon his shoulder.
“Well, well what do we have here.”
He growls at the familiar voice. Human Torch cuts him a snide grin. He pats him on the shoulder.
“Not to worry, I got this. You just go have yourself a good time!”
He says and takes off. Spiderman shrugs out of Blackcat’s hold. He sends out his web. Only to find himself yanked back and slammed down.
“KNOCK IT OFF CAT!”
He takes off and makes his way over. He grimaces seeing Bella’s arms wrapped around Johnny’s neck. He and the driver were loading her into the cab.
He shook his head with gritted teeth. He viciously turns around. He points a finger directly upon Blackcat. He jabs her finger right into her sternum. “Get the HELL away from me! You’ve ruined everything I had going for me!” He continues to jab into her. She nearly falls off the roof.
He irritably webs her back towards him.
“Stay on your feet! But away from me!”
“I was going to offer you my services, but you can just forget that! I hadn’t any idea you were this moody. And to think I have my entire room decked out with The Amazing Spiderman! You sure do some false advertising!”
“I caught the tail end of whatever that thing was. I thought you and your friends could use some help. Not normally my cup of tea. But at the moment, it’s heading for the bridge. That’s what I came here for! You don’t have to be such a jerk!”
“Me a jerk? Last time I checked, I wasn’t the one trying to rape you!”
“Oh sweetie it’s not rape. You want me just as bad, trust me you’ve made it more than obvious…” She hints looking to his package. “But for now, can’t we put that aside? People’s lives are at stake.”
“And since when do you give a damn? I thought you were all about pretty things and crime!”
“A girl’s got to have some morals somewhere. Now you coming with me Webslinger or not?”
Spiderman sighs he looks back towards the cab. It was gone though. He knew he had a responsibility. He needed to help the people on the bridge. He found himself torn, because he knew Bella needed him as well. Even if he hated it. She had Johnny looking out for her. Granted, the guy was a dick and a half. He knew deep down he’d take care of her. He wanted it to be him. Peter wanted to be in his place right now. He swallowed back that painful knot that was forming heavily in his throat. He was losing her and he knew it. He was losing the one person besides his Aunt May he loved and cared most about. He felt as though this hole was building within him. He shut his eyes and turned back to Blackcat.
Bella groans out as she rolls over.
She looked up, to see Johnny crouched over her. He was putting something on her chest.
Her eyes widen and she scooted back. She went to cover herself. He cocks a curious brow as her outfit returned and was whole now. Almost like she was healing, but slowly.
“I’ve seen them before you know.” He says with a shrug.
He grabs a towel and starts to wipe off the antiseptic cream from his hands.
“Not mine you haven’t!”
He grins, but refrains from saying anything else on it. Truth of the matter was, he didn’t actually pay that much attention. He did have some respect. He was simply doctoring her up. He folds his arms about his chest.
“Where am I?” She questions looking around.
“You live in Brooklyn?”
“Try Glenville, Long Island.”
She looks upon Johnny with widened eyes.
“I can’t be here I gotta go.” She comes to her feet and stumbles around.
He quickly catches her.
“You need to rest. You took quite a beating.”
