Spider-Man 545 Universe X
A fanfic I've decided to write changing the events of Amazing Spider-Man 545. This fiction is a dedication to the character that I have loved for many years. It will be the start of an ongoing series I plan to write strictly as a fan fiction.
Pete sat down next to his aunts hospital bed not knowing what to do. He had gone to everyone, tried everything but no one could help. What use were all his powers if he couldn't save her. He thought trying hard to fight back the tears, as he held his aunt's fragile hands.
Then he felt movement in his aunts tiny hands as it squeezed his back giving Peter a sense of hope.
"Peter." May whispered struggling to speak.
"I'm here aunt May. Everything's going to be alright." Peter said tears flowing from his eyes.
"You always were a good liar." May replied trying to adjust her eyes to the dark room.
"No, May I swear your going to be okay."
"I'm afraid this old body has taken all it can." May said coughing trying to ignore her pain.
"Don't talk like that May. I need you. You can't leave me."
"Oh Peter, I'm so sorry for holding you back all these years."
"Don't talk like that. You never held me back from anything."
"I did. You have always been so smart. Even if you hadn't received those fantastic powers you still would have become something special."
"Your fine May, your just tired." Pete said leaning over to his aunt.
"Peter I'ved lived a good life and I know. I raised a good man, but there is so much more you can give to the world than Spiderman. Peter Parker your just as smart as that nice man Tony Stark, maybe smarter, you just dont allow yourself to be. May said tears slidding down her cheeks.
"You have a good wife, Peter. It is you and Mary Janes time to build on that.
"It's all my fault." Peter said wipping the tears from his face. still clinging to Mays hand.
"No, Peter its not and your uncle Bens death is not your fault. I've wanted to tell you that for years. I've always known your scret since the first day you sewed that suit together. It was my sewing kit you borrowed after all, not to mention all the red and blue thread missing from it.
"Why did'nt you ever say anything?" Pete asked surprised.
"I figured you would tell me when you were ready and you did."
"It never bothered you who I was."
"Everyday Peter but I knew why you did it. You did it for him. You did it for Ben, my sweet Ben. May said again coughing as she gasped for air.
May looked at Peter struggling to touch Peter with her other hand.
"Ben has always been with you. Everything you are is because of him. You need to know that Peter. Know that when I am gone that I will always be with you."
"No, aunt May you cant die."
"Not even a deal with the devil can stop that. Be happy Pete. Dont blame yourself and know that this is my chance to be happy, for when I close my eyes to this world and reopen them to the next, Ben will be waiting."
May said loosining her grip on Peters hand. May continued to struggle to breath, tears still flowing from her eyes as the beeps in the ekg monitor grew louder.
"Now give your old aunt May a hug and a kiss." May said trying to extend her weak arms.
Memories of his aunt flashed thru his mind as he held his aunt,especially one in particular. It was the day she told him about his parents. It was one memory he could always turn too. She was the one person he knew he could always rely on and trust to keep him safe. May held Peter for hours as he cried for his parents and never once left his side.
Today in that cold dark hospital room she held him the exact same way as she did when he was a child, till finnally he could feel his Aunt's embrace loosen. May smiled while her last breath left her body, but before it did she whispered in Peter's ear, "I love you."
"I'm sorry I was late Pete." Mj said walking in knowing the look on Peter's face. She had seen that look one other time. That was the day her friend Gwen died and just as she did that day she walked outside and asked the staff to give her and her husband a moment. She walked back into the room just as she did so long ago. Mary Jane closed the door to join the man she loved.
