    Summary

    “What’s your name by the way?”

    “Peter,” he says, and for the first time, MJ notices the way his eyes crinkle, and how the baby blue painted evening sky seeps through her shop’s windows. 

    “MJ.”

    “I know. Um—I saw your Instagram. Good work,” he says. “Maybe I’ll get one from you.”

    Or, five times Peter tells MJ he wants a tattoo, and the one time she gives him one.

    Summary

    “You’re right,” Peter says lightly, his cheeks flushing-- from the blood rush to the head Michelle reasons, “You always are.”

    “Glad we got that settled.”

    “Yep.”

    There’s a weird nervous energy in the room now, something that’s been happening more with a consistency that Michelle’s still hasn’t gotten used to. It always happens like this, when they seem to realize that they’re alone and with this kind of tension that just makes things… not uncomfortable but clear that they’re avoiding a conversation.

    Which, Michelle won’t even lie, they’re avoiding a conversation.

    Summary

    “What’s your name again?” she asks, not because she doesn’t know (she does) but because she needs another moment to puzzle out what sort of response this kid is looking for from her.

    “Peter Parker,” he tells her with a smile.

    “You’re kinda morbid, Peter Parker,” she deadpans.

    His face immediately falls, and Michelle doesn’t need to be good at reading people in order to see the obvious guilt in his eyes. It takes her aback a little bit.

    “I’m so sorry, I was just-- I didn’t mean to--”

    “It’s refreshing,” she cuts him off before thinking it through, just so he’ll stop spiraling towards a conversation that she’s pretty sure neither one of them want to have. A pity party for grief-stricken children on the floor of a dance studio.

    Summary

    “It’s time,” she spooks him, and he rolls his eyes.

    Peter seems more than prepared for meeting her family, especially because she’d promised that they’re normal. Just like her. And once she tells them that they're not dating, they’ll treat him just like family immediately.

    No judgment, or intimidation tactics. That’s how the Jones family works.

    MJ offers Peter a free ride from Cambridge to Queens, but they have to make a stop at her cousin's graduation party first on the Fourth of July.

    Summary

    Peter is not nervous. This is their sixth annual boating trip together – well sixth when they’ve been allowed to go alone. Nothing unsavoury has ever happened because they’re best friends.

    Michelle is his best friend.

    So he’s not nervous.
