Fanfiction: Field Trip Peter Parker Was Banned From
Summary: Peter was banned from a field trip, so Tony decided to let him stay at the tower and drag him on a meeting. Then Harley decided to make an appearance
Relationship: Peter Parker x Harley Keener, Tony Stark & Peter Parker (Iron Dad & Spider Son)
Peter has mentally recreated the whole periodic table in his head in both original and alphabetical order at least four times for each during the last fifteen minutes. That was telling enough about how much the current meeting, with the CEO of the company Peter has already forgotten the name of, was boring. The teen wasn’t trying to be rude or ungrateful, but the man was telling the complete nonsense, and Peter would be more willing to spend this time with his mentor in the lab, working on the latest upgrade, than be here. Judging by the way Tony was struggling to keep his eyes open and once in a while nod at something, he and Peter shared the same idea.
“Where is an alien invasion, when you need one,” Tony muttered under his breath.
Peter would miss that if not for his enhanced hearing, he snorted and tried to cover it with a cough. To be more believable he even reaches for his glass of water to take a sip. Tony clapped him on the back playing along with his act.
The two of them were stuck in this meeting for an hour now. This morning Peter hasn’t gone to school since there was a field trip to some advanced company which Peter was banned from. Apparently, ‘lying’ about your internship makes the school look bad. They didn’t give the name of the corporation, not that Peter cared. When he told Tony about it, the man suggested Peter stay at the Stark Tower so they could spend the next day together in the lab. Needless to say, Peter was on cloud nine. The whole evening, night, and part of the morning the two of them were working on the upgrade on Mark 89, taking small breaks only to refresh their coffees and use the bathroom. Harley joined them in the evening but called it a night somewhere around 3 a.m. telling them that he has a tour group to lead at nine in the morning. So, after Peter received a goodnight kiss from his handsome boyfriend and promise that he would join Harley in a while, Peter continued working on Mark 89 with Tony.
Doctor Strange probably did something with time-stone because there was no way that the morning came so fast. Neither Peter nor Tony acknowledged that it was morning already until the very much disappointed voice of FRIDAY didn’t inform them that Tony has a meeting in seven minutes. There was also a message from Pepper attached, so after hearing it, they knew that there was no chance that Tony could miss that meeting. Peter thought that he would just stay at the lab, but Tony nearly begged for Peter to come with him, so he would have at least someone he could tolerate in the room whole of arrogant assholes.
That is how sleep-deprived Peter Parker found himself on this boring meeting with the even more sleepy Tony Stark on his left, both running only on coffee, listening as some man trying to explain to them how beneficial it would be if Stark Industries and whatever-this-company-was-called merged. It wouldn’t be. Even Peter could see that. But the man just couldn’t get the memo.
“Let’s take a ten minutes break,” Tony’s voice was like a blessing from above and the man was on his feet before he even finished speaking. “I would like to discuss some aspects of this deal with Mr Parker.”
Tony left the room before someone could object, Peter was quick to follow.
“Thank God! I tough I gonna fall asleep there,” Peter confessed yawning.
“Trust me, kid, you wouldn’t be the only one,” Tony muttered bitterly with a deep sigh. “Ugh, I would kill for a coffee, right now,” he admitted and put an arm around the teen’s shoulder. “Let’s go get some before this Hell continues.” Not three steps later Tony’s phone rang, cursing he fished it out and after he saw the caller he groaned. “Shit, I really should answer that.”
“Don’t worry, I will go get us some coffee, you answer,” Peter assured the man and Tony sighed already answering the call.
“You are a lifesaver, Pete.”
Peter made his way to the common break room, where he knew the coffee machine was. He was acting more on autopilot now as his energy level was extremely. He was drumming his fingers on the table waiting for the coffee to be done. The monotones sound of the working apparat was lulling him to sleep and Peter decided to close his eyes for a second to let them rest a little.
“Rough morning, darling?” Peter’s eyes flew open as he heard Harley’s voice. He turned around to see his boyfriend with a carefree smirk. His sleepy brain absolutely ignored the tour group, which was standing right next to his boyfriend, and for some reason gaping at him. The machine biped and Peter took his coffee and started to make Tony’s. “Oh, maybe someone should have gone to the bed, as he promised?” the boy teased making his way to Peter who groaned.
“I’m so sorry, Harls,” Peter apologized taking a large gulp of his coffee ignoring that it was burning hot. “I was meaning to go to bed, but then Tony suggested another test on upgrade and we carried away,” he explained dropping his head on Harley’s shoulder.
“Do you and the old man at least figure out what wasn’t working?” Harley asked running his hand through Peter’s curly brown hair. Peter shook his head hiding in the croak of his boyfriend’s neck mumbling something. “What was that, darling?”
Peter stepped a little away to take another sip of coffee and responded.
“No, we didn’t,” he admitted. “We didn’t even know it was morning until FRIDAY informed us. And now Tony and I are stuck on this ass boring meeting, which we still need to continue, with a dude who thinks he is the smartest man in the room, but what he is saying is complete bullshit,” Peter complained drinking more coffee, Harley snorted looking at his grumpy boyfriend, he was adorable. “Can you believe this guy? He thinks that Stark Industries is in deep need of merging with their company. Like they are not on the edge of bankruptcy! Like they are not working for Osborn,” Peter scoffed finishing his coffee and turning to make himself another one when someone shouted.
“Parker, what was that?!” Peter was really glad that he already put down his cup because otherwise, he would drop it.
“Flash, what are you doing here?” Peter asked confused, only then did he notice that the tour group he was ignoring before was in fact his classmates. “Ned?”
“It’s our field trip,” Ned explained smiling guiltily. “I forgot to text you.”
“Harley!” Peter turned to his boyfriend who was silently dying with laughter. Peter shot him a look full of betrayal.
“Sorry, darling,” he said leaving a kiss on his boyfriend’s temple. “I was going to say, but you were so adorable while ranting about this man,” he shrugged and Peter went for a reply when he was interrupted.
“Parker, how much did you pay this guy to lie for you?” Flash asked and his friend laughed. “Or you-,”
Before another word could leave the bully’s mouth Peter stopped him with a motion of his hand.
“Nah, zip it,” to everyone’s surprise Peter responded. “I’m too sleep-deprived to care about what you wanna say, so save it,” Peter then tiredly pinched the bridge of his nose sighing. “I have a meeting to return to,” with that he grabbed two cups of steaming hot coffee and with a quick kiss from Harley made his way toward the meetings room ignoring all the curious glances he was receiving.
“You better join me in bed tonight!” Harley shouted because he loved the way Peter blush. He clapped his hands earning the attention of the tour group. “Anyway, let’s continue, shall we?”
Let me know what you think!
