dude 3 for the prompt thingy :D

3. Things you said too quietly.

Nico had been with Will for a long time.  It had been slow going at first.  After Gaea was defeated, it took them two full years to finally get their act together.  It was Will who bit the bullet and confessed, and it was Nico who shortly after initiated their first kiss.  Nearly two years after that, and it was a norm for everyone at camp to see them together.  They were Will and Nico; inseparable and, though they fought often, happy.

And they were happy.  Nico couldn’t entirely believe his luck.  Somewhere along the way, he’d picked up some irreplaceable friendships and found something like a family.  Hazel, Reyna, Jason, Frank, Will, Piper, Percy, Annabeth - they were all a part of that patchwork family they’d knitted together for themselves. By all accounts, Nico should have no worries.

Only, he could feel said worry gnawing away at him each time Will said those three words that, try as he might, Nico was unable to say back.  Whenever Will would flash those bright blue eyes and declare, unabashed, “I love you,” Nico would feel something in his chest crush at the way Will’s face fell when Nico remained silent.

“Yeah,” was his response.  Or, “Me too.”  Or even more dreaded, “Thanks.”

He knew Will was genuine, and he was certain that his own feelings were the same.  But it still scared him.  Words had power.  A demigod knew that better than anyone.  And the last time Nico had said, “I love you,” had been to Bianca. There was no way he could rebuild himself if he lost another person he loved.  Still, eventually, Will was going to get tired of waiting.  Nico knew it, and it terrified him all the same.

Will was lying in bed beside him, seemingly fast asleep with his hair mussed up and a childish pout on his face.  Nico smoothed his bangs back and watched him for a moment.  Will deserved better.

“I…” he whispered then fell silent.  He felt foolish.  He couldn’t even say it when Will was asleep. “I lo…”  He cleared his throat.  He could do this.  He thought of all the times Will said it to him and never once pressured Nico into saying it back.  He thought of all the nights Will stayed up with him counting sheep.  He thought of the smile that came on Will’s face each time he saw Nico.  “I love you,” he finally rasped and felt immensely light.  He breathed out a laugh.  “I love you, Will,” he repeated.

Mission accomplished, and making a mental note to try to say it for real in the morning, Nico curled into his boyfriend and let his eyes slide shut.

And, just as he started to drift off, Will Solace’s lips twitched upwards.  He wrapped his arms around Nico and pulled him closer before mouthing soundlessly, “I love you, too.”

O erro é que as pessoas lutam pra ter, depois que têm, esquecem de cuidar e, acabam perdendo. Mas não foi assim comigo, eu lutei por você, eu sofri muito até conseguir estar finalmente ao seu lado, mas quem não deu valor foi você, e não venha me dizer que a errada fui eu, porque meu único erro foi te amar demais. Te coloquei em um pedestal e depois reparei no erro que cometi, pois você não é prêmio algum. A prova de que rostinho bonito não vale tanto quanto o que se tem por dentro, e você tem muito pouco por dentro para se aproveitar. Você não sabe dar valor as pessoas, não sabe, na verdade, dar o valor que elas merecem; eu, em um passado recente, iria ao inferno por você, porém isso nada lhe importava, você ignorou todo o sentimento que tive por você. Pensando bem, talvez o erro tenha sido realmente meu, por acreditar que você conseguiria lidar com o tamanho do amor que eu senti por ti quando nem amor próprio você possuía. Eu fui boba, fui burra e acima de tudo fui sua de um jeito que jamais fui de outro alguém. Mas não ficarei me lamentando por uma perda que não foi mim, tenho que agradecer por você ter me deixado livre pra que eu pudesse me afastar o suficiente para que as suas mãos - que já percorreram tantos outros corpos - me toque e o suficiente para que o eco da sua voz não faça minhas pernas tremerem e me bata aquela vontade de ignorar todos os seus desaforos e te desculpar. Tenho que agradecê-lo por ter me deixado ir embora sem nenhuma duvida do que você realmente é comigo ou sente por mim. Sem nenhuma duvida se fiz mal em ir embora, em te deixar vagando de pessoa a pessoa. Quanto mais o tempo passa mais tenho a certeza que o único erro que eu cometi foi ir atrás de você desde o inicio. Mas tudo bem tem coisas que a gente tem que passar pra aprender, e com você eu aprendi que não vale se doar inteiro pra quem não te ouve nem pela metade.
