Note: I have no idea why I'm writing this. I had been contemplating on writing fanfiction for the Amazing Spider-Man after seeing the movie and this is just what I finally came up with. I'm not sure if I will just keep this a one-shot or not. If enough people in the reviews say that they want it to be a series, then it shall be a series! So that means you all should probably review(:
Disclaimer: I, sadly, do not own the Spider-Man comics or the movies. If I did, Gwen never would have died in the comics.
Peter Parker stared at his cell-phone, pondering if it was really a good idea to call Gwen Stacy. He had made a promise to her father that he would keep Gwen out of his dangerous life. It was his dying wish. And that was the only thing about being Spider-Man that really made Peter upset. Spider-Man would always have villains. It was kind of a package deal. And if any one of them ever found out that Peter Parker was Spider-Man, they would immediately go right to Gwen and try to hurt her in order to cause distress to him. Peter knew he couldn't risk that. But there was a part of him that told him to go against Captain Stacy's promise. Peter even hinted at going against it while in class with Gwen. Though after that he never talked to the love of his life again. And it broke his heart.
Slowly Peter grabbed the phone and punched in Gwen's number. Then skeptically he put the phone up to his ear. All he wanted to hear was her sweet, soft voice. And when she answered, surprisingly, Peter lost his breath.
"Hello?" Gwen sounded almost mad. Her voice was cold and harsh. Peter pursed his lips, wondering if he should just hang up. But he knew that Gwen knew it was him. He didn't want to seem like a chicken.
"G-Gwen?" Peter asked slowly. "It's Peter. Peter Parker."
Gwen chuckled over the line, actually. "I'm familiar with you. Why are you calling me, Peter? I thought you promised to my...father that you were going to stay away from me." Peter could hear the hurt in her voice. It made him feel like shit. How could he hurt her like that?
"Well, I'm not actually near you. I'm calling you over a phone. It's been a while since we've talked. And I guess I just needed to hear your voice, Gwen. You do know that I'm just trying to respect your father's wishes, right? I didn't mean to hurt you at all when I said I couldn't talk to you anymore." Peter could have gone on babbling for much longer, but he didn't want to sound like an idiot. So many things went through his mind. He wanted to know how her family was doing with the recent loss of Captain Stacy. Though he could already guess that they were still trying to cope with it. Peter still hadn't forgiven himself for letting him die like that.
Gwen sighed. "I know, Peter. And I forgive you for that. But I love you. I want to be with you. I don't care if I get put into your dangerous life. Maybe I want to be apart of it."
"You can't be apart of it, Gwen. What if you died too? I would never be able to live with myself if that were to happen." Peter didn't want to imagine loosing her like that. It was hard enough knowing Captain Stacy died because of him. Gwen couldn't be apart of any of that. It wasn't where she was supposed to be.
"Don't you love me?"
"Of course I love you, Gwen." Peter now was beginning to choke up on his words. On the other end he could hear Gwen beginning to sob lightly. He hated making her cry. "I don't want you to get hurt. Can't you understand that?"
It took Gwen a few seconds to reply to Peter. "I understand."
"I should get going, Gwen. You know, homework and saving people from evil villlains." He tired his best to laugh, but all that came out was an awkward choke. "Bye." Peter almost hung up the phone, but Gwen quickly spoke to him.
"Are you going to call me again?"
Peter pursed his lips and hung up the phone.
