Harmony & Peter Parker (Spiderman) Challenge:
#45: Come As You Aren't Disclaimer:
Just a bit of mucking about in other people’s sandboxes.Word count:
Fame isn’t all it’s cracked up to be, as Peter finds out courtesy of Harmony.
Peter loved Halloween. It was the one night a year he could walk around as Spiderman and no one even looked twice.
He strolled past the long line of costumed folk outside a trendy club and noticed a blonde woman staring at him. Okay, usually no one looked twice.
She studied him, confused. “What are you supposed to be?”
“Oh.” She frowned and cocked her head to one side. “You don’t really look much like him. I mean, maybe if you were taller and a little more muscular, you know?”
Looking at her barely-there dress and strappy stiletto heels, he couldn’t resist asking. “What are YOU supposed to be dressed as?”
She smiled and tossed her hair. “It’s it great? I look just like a normal girl!”O-kay. Clearly not the brightest bulb in the box.
She rubbed her arms and danced from foot to foot. “What’s taking so long? It’s cold out here and I’m starving!”
He considered pointing out that she was outside a club, not a restaurant, but decided why bother. “Well, good luck with that-”
“Harmony,” she offered.
“Well, good luck, Harmony.” Yep, he had quite the knack for finding the crazies.
