“Okay. Start at the beginning.” Reyna started in a surprisingly steady voice as her, Nico, and Jason walked to their next classes, which were all near each other and a bit far away so they had time to talk about Nico’s confession.
The Italian had his eyes glued to the floor, his ears, neck, and face were completely red, and he was pouting. He looked like an angry tomato. At least Jason thought so. “It was at lunch…..and uh,….well we…..I gave him the cookies I made for him…….and well……I confessed…or he confessed…..honestly it’s all a blur right now……..and then we kissed…….there was some talking after that…..and uh….more…..k-kissing…definitely some cuddling….” Nico mumbled, and if possible his blush darkened significantly with each word he stammered out.
Reyna’s eyes widened as well as Jason’s, but then her eyes narrowed in suspicion. “What did you talk about Nico?”
And Jason knew for sure him and Reyna both caught the gulp and how Nico seemed to tense.
“That’s…..can we talk about that after school?” The dark haired teen declared. Now looking more serious, his blush even died down.
“Was it something bad?” Jason asked cautiously as he placed a comforting albeit protective hand on the smaller teen’s shoulder. It felt so small and thin beneath his hand.
Reyna crossed her arms in that intimidating way but Jason and Nico both knew it was her protective stance, specifically when it came to Nico.
Nico didn’t even flinch under their gazes, didn’t shrink away like most would, but it’s not like either of them expected him to. Nico di Angelo could out stubborn a bull if he ever wanted to. “I’m not going to lie….at first I thought it was but, I… I’m certain it’s not now…just that it might complicate things….important things that we will discuss at my house after school. Persephone is going to make that weird organic macaroni again so..uh be prepared and bring extra spices? But yeah we’ll talk about it then.” Nico concluded as he walked away from the shivering Juniors he called friends and walked into his class.
The two stood there absorbing what he said, mainly about what he wanted to talk about but also when he mentioned Persephone cooking. That made them shudder.
“I’ll bring garlic salt like last time if you bring the cayane pepper again.” Jason suggested to Reyna who merely nodded as her response and they both went to their classes.
“Okay I want details and I want them now!” Lou declared as her and Will waved goodbye to Cecil who also demanded to know the gossip after school.
Will snapped the bracelet he was wearing over and over again. He almost always had to do something with his hands, whether he be nervous or just bored. This was out of nervousness.
“Like I said. We kissed, and we’re dating. Well gonna date. I wanna take him out a couple of times before we make it official.”
Lou rolled her eyes and snorted. “What, are you gonna ask his dad for permission to date him?”
When she received no reply, Lou turned to look at her blond friend who was an impressive shade of red and quit messing with his bracelet.
“Oh.” She breathed out. “You’re really gonna do that?”
Will gulped and laughed sheepishly as he nodded. “Too cheesy? I wanted to do it because Nico said his dad is pretty old fashioned about stuff, like technology mainly, like sure he has a Mac and an IPhone and stuff and he can work them, but he is cruddy at using social media. Like seriously any kind of social media. He called Tumblr, “Tumble,” and Twitter, “Twattar.” Oh God and Facebook became BookFace or Book of Faces. When Nico was helping him make a Facebook along with his sisters, Hades asked him, no joke, “What would I do with a book full of faces? Do I know the faces? What if I don’t know the faces Nico?” I’m not kidding. And I just thought that he would appreciate me asking for Nico’s hand…….not like MARRIAGE!!! We’re too young. Oh goodness we are sooooo too young for that I mean in dating. Hand in dating. Yeeaaahhhhhhhhh.“
Will rambled on and on. Seriously, it was like the boy suffered from word vomit when he over thought or was nervous. It was kinda cute, like now. Lou couldn’t help but laugh, which made Will stop rambling and pout.
“Are you laughing at me Ms. Ellen?”
“Of course not Mr. Solace, I was laughing at….well yeah you but not because of what you were saying. Because you are just too darn cute!” She replied while she pinched Will’s cheeks and cooed.
The blond swatted her hands away and pouted once more as he rubbed his cheeks. That hurt!
“Soooo….it is a good idea?”
“I think he would appreciate it, I think Nico would as well. He’s kinda old fashioned too. Somewhat. I mean he has an old record player, isn’t that crazy? And he doesn’t have an iPod! He has one of those CD players that you clip to your jeans, also a Walkman like who has those anymore?”
“I think it’s cute. He also has an original game boy, game boy color- a pink one, a dreamcast, a GameCube, a Nintendo 64 and all kinds of old gaming systems it’s wild.”
“So what you’re saying is his house is a retro gold mine.”
Will chuckled and nodded. “Basically.”
“Oh hey! Are you going to go to the Stolls party this weekend? I heard it’s going to top the last one.” Lou excitedly explained.
“I heard that one was really crazy, but I don’t know. I’m not really the partying type, Lou, you know that. Also does Reyna know? I’m sure she would be pissed if she knew.”
Lou waved her hand in a dismissive manner. “Don’t worry, she has no idea. Apparently she is hanging out at Nico’s. I guess it’s like their monthly movie night or something.”
Or something. Will thought. It probably was to help out with the whole Ghost King thing, which honestly Will was still not over. Or perhaps it really was a movie night. He really didn’t know.
“Dude you should totally come to the party. I heard they hired Leo’s cousin who is a professional fire-breathing. It’s going to be lit!”
Will groaned. “Please never say that again.”
Lou smirked devilishly. “What lit? It’s going to be so lit! Like I don’t think anything could be as lit and this lit party!” She mocked with wild hand gestures.
Will continuely made faces and groans as she kept talking until he dissolved into giggles. “I’ll consider it if you stop saying lit.”
“That doesn’t mean I’m going to go!”
“It practically does, Solace.”
“Awww I love you too!”
Why did Will get the feeling that the party was a bad idea?
It was finally after school and Will was pretty excited to get home, do his homework, and then watch the new episode of Ghost King. As always, the school was incredibly hyped about it. Will was sure he was more excited since he would be watching his sorta-boyfriend on TV! Like, how cool was that?
After he had had dinner and had done his homework, Lee, Michael and him all sat down in the living just in time for Ghost King to start. Will was giggling through the new intro since the producers and editing department tweaked Lou’s video a bit, and had Nico talking about what he did.
It was cool but a little dorky now that Will knew that behind the voice modifier and the sweater was Nico.
All around though the intro was interesting and pretty damn cool. It started off with a grainy image of Nico, well Ghost King in his first episode when he had his back to the camera and was looking to his right at a chair that had fallen over during the episode. And the sound of a heartbeat, a steady heartbeat continued to play as images of his old episodes were flashing over the screen. Then Will heard him speak. “ I am the Ghost King. ” ,now it started to show small snippets from his old episodes, “ for as long as I can remember, I’ve been able to communicate and see the dead,” The heartbeat started to get louder as the images stopped on a new one, it was Ghost King standing in the old cemetery on Poe Drive. The heartbeat started to get faster and eerie music began to play softly as the camera zoomed in slowly on Ghost King. “At first, it was enough that only I knew about the existence of spirits, but as time went on, I felt the need to show others the proof as well. To show them that there are indeed spirits among us. Many of you watching might already be fans, or maybe you’re simply watching it because you were curious. Well whatever your reasoning, just know that what you see is real. I take many precautions in order to show you the truth. So without further ado, you are watching Ghost King.” The camera is now straight on Ghost Kings, skeletal looking head. Then the heartbeat and eerie music stopped in favor of a woman screaming and a spirit seemingly swallowing the image of Ghost King till the screen went black and all the introductions were gone. Then there was Lou being interviewed and some of the staff as well, before they headed into the building.
Throughout the whole episode the three brothers would jump, maybe occasionally scream, and laugh at the combined snark of Ghost King and Lou Ellen. The episode was great. But Will felt his heart drop when he saw Nico get injured by those scissors that were thrown at him by the poltergeist. He knew he gasped as his brothers winced. It was like he was more aware of everything Ghost King did, he thought he was already before finding out the identity of Ghost King, but oh how wrong he was. Every episode was replaying itself in his head, which one’s Nico got hurt in and how bad, and just exactly how he had lied about how he got his injuries.
It was….it was a bit overwhelming, and very worrying. Will was more aware of just how dangerous Nico’s job was. And it scared him. It scared him more than the ghosts themselves.
He gulped as he continued to watch the episode clutching the couch’s pillow to his chest.
“So he knows.” Reyna stated more than questioned.
Nico nodded as he plopped back on his bed and sighed. “Yup.” He responded making the ‘p’ pop. Jason sat beside him and patted his head.
“Well at least you know you don’t have to keep secrets from one another.” Jason supplied as he laid beside Nico and smiled at him.
Nico returned the smile and nodded before he sighed. “I almost ruined it though…”
Reyna now laid on the other side of Nico and raised one perfect brow at him. “What do you mean?” She asked as she started to play with his unruly mane.
“I….when he told me he knew…I…I almost shut down…I was really close to doing it. I just. I don’t know. I felt betrayed in a way. Like….like maybe he only liked me because he knew, you know?”
The other two nodded.
The dark haired teen inhaled slowly and exhaled a shaky breath.
“I could have ruined it so fast. But Will, he, he managed to calm me down and he managed to convince me that he really liked me….like me, me. If that makes sense.”
“It does.” Reyna reassured.
Their peaceful moment was ruined when Nico’s phone began to buzz continually on the night stand. Jason grabbed it for him and smirked teasingly.
“Well speak of the devil.”
“Seriously?” Nico asked as he scrambled to sit up and snatched his phone from Jason. Once he saw Will’s contact picture, it was him about to be attacked by a goose and screaming. He took it when they went to the zoo, for some odd reason they had geese running around. Anyways, once he saw the picture he immediately blushed.
He continued to stare until Reyna nudged him and laughed. “Well answer it.”
He nodded, still blushing and hurried to answer the phone. “Yes? I mean hello! Hey. Hi.”
Jason snickered at him which he and Reyna retaliated by hitting him with pillows.
Nico could hear Will laugh on the other end softly. “Well hey there. Whatcha up to, Angel?”
Now Nico was strong, in a lot of senses, but he was finding out he was absolutely weak to pet names.
He squeaked but regained his composure rather fast. “Uh, not much just hanging out at my house with Reyna and Jason.”
“Oh nice. I just finished watching Ghost King.” Nico could practically feel Will’s tension. He was obviously in front of others, that or he didn’t like the episode.
“Oh. Yeah? How’d….how’d you like it?” It felt weird to ask how someone liked his show since he knew they knew who he was. He chewed on his bottom lip as Reyna and Jason scooted closer to listen in.
“It was great! Very suspenseful. Worrying though.”
“Yeah. Since you know, Ghost King was sliced by, probably rusty scissors and could have gotten tetanus. And didn’t get medical attention right away.”
Oh. He was getting lectured. He was getting lectured by his boyfriend? Kinda-boyfriend? Yeah kinda-boyfriend. Nico rolled his eyes and smiled.
“I can practically hear you rolling your eyes at me.” Will remarked. Which made Nico laugh.
“Maybe because I was. I’m fine Will. Really.”
“Mmm probably. Hey is it okay if I come over?”
Nico felt a breath get caught in his throat and felt himself blush again. “Uh, sure.” He mumbled.
“Cool I’ll be there in 10 minutes. See ya then.”
After that Nico hung up and just sat there before he laughed. Reyna and Jason watched him, both clearly amused at his behavior.
“He just lectured me.”
“He what?” Jason asked with a small chuckle.
“He lectured me about getting hurt during the episode, practically. Oh, he’s also coming over.”
Reyna shook her head and chuckled softly. “Good. You need to be more careful.”
“Not you too.” Nico whined. “Anyways, how’s Connor and Travis doing? Didn’t they just win some game last week?” Nico asked Reyna.
“They’re doing good. Scared the living daylights out of our Mom though when they came home. They were cheering as loudly as they could when they walked through the door after the game. They did win by the way.”
“Yeah I got that.”
Jason laughed and sighed. “Sometimes I have a hard time believing that you’re actually related to those two.”
“Trust me, so does a lot of people.” Reyna remarked with a laugh. “They only believe me when I explain that I was adopted.”
“Which is stupid.” Nico concluded as he turned on his TV and began to flip through the channels.
Reyna hummed in agreement. “Hey put it on Chopped.” She recommended and Nico was all too happy to oblige as Jason groaned and rolled his eyes. “We watch that all the time though!”
“Yeah because it’s a good show, now shush!” Nico insisted as he put on the food network.
________10 minutes later_______
“You are such a nerd. You got here exactly ten minutes later.” Nico teased as he walked with Will up to his room. They stopped to say high to Hazel, Bianca, and Persephone who invited Will to stay for dinner, which Will said he’d stay for but he had already eaten. Persephone was a bit upset but told him next time that he would have to come over and try her famous pasta. He accepted and made their way into his room.
Jason and Reyna teased the two a bit which made them both blush something fierce but stopped so they could hang out. Will made sure Nico was actually okay and then they were all watching The Monster Squad, an old 80’s movie while they waited for dinner to be ready.
They made small talk and Will made the mistake of mentioning the party that was coming up.
“So are you going to Connor and Travis’s party?” Will had casually asked Jason, and then immediately slapped a hand over his mouth and looked at Reyna.
“Oh I already knew about it.” She simply commented with a shrug.
Will was totally confused. “Wait you knew?”
“Of course I did. They invited Rachel who then accidentally told me. You know she’s not very good at keeping a secret, she told me in a riddle. I think she didn’t think I would figure it out. But I love riddles so it was pretty easy to find out.”
“And you’re not mad?” Will asked as he wrapped an arm around Nico and brought the Italian boy closer. He could see Nico blush but also smile. Which made Jason smile.
Reyna shrugged again. “I was at first but then I found out that they are throwing the party because they won last week’s home lacrosse game.”
“Which is weird since they only throw parties for like…the end of finals or something like that.” Nico mumbled as he leaned more on Will.
The dark haired female nodded. “Yeah, but if my hunch is correct, Connor convinced Travis to help him throw a party so Mitchell would go.”
“Wait, Mitchell? Don’t they hang out anyways? Why would he need to throw a party?” Jason asked.
“God you’re so slow.” Nico sighed. “Connor likes Mitchell. He has for a while now.”
Again Reyna nodded. “Yup.”
“Seriously? Okay but why throw a party?” Will asked.
“I think he’s doing it to impress him.” Reyna commented off handedly.
“Wow….how did you figure all this out?” Will asked as Jason nodded and asked, “And how are you so sure that Connor likes Mitchell?”
“Oh please. I’m his older sister, I know him. Plus, Travis may have let it slip. Well he more so hinted at it than anything.”
Will and Jason nodded slowly in understanding as Nico laughed at them.
Okay so maybe the party wouldn’t be all that bad. Will thought. “Well then, in that case. Wanna go to the party with me?” He asked Nico who flushed.
“Party’s aren’t really my thing.”
“They’re not mine either but I know for a fact that Lou is going to drag me there one way or another. It’d be better if I had a date.” He said with a wink.
“I guess that makes sense. Misery loves company.” Nico responded with a teasing smirk.
“That’s the spirit!” Will encouraged.
It was nice. This was nice. Thought Nico.
“Dinner’s ready!” Persephone yelled from downstairs.
Aaaannnnnnnnnd nice moment over.
Reyna and Jason groaned and looked at Nico pleasingly, as though he could get them out of it. He stood up and helped Will up before slapping Jason’s knee softly.
+++On the outside, Valda fears nothing. She charges head-long into the fray, a battle cry on her lips. However, she does have a few fears that she does her best to keep hidden. She fears for her Charge–or rather, Charges. Her Charge is the entirety of the Tundra breed. Thanks to loving and looking up to her brother, Gainstrive, she developed a very protective nature over all Tundras that come across her. Two of her lovers, in fact, are Tundras. But she fears that she won’t be strong enough to protect those that are within reach. Because of this fear, she trains every single day, building up her muscles and keeping her claws and sword sharp.
11. Bad or petty habits
+++Valda talks…very loudly. She has a booming voice, and doesn’t understand the meaning of ‘indoor voices.’ She often startles others, without even realizing it. Also, despite the clan being on good terms with most Beastclans, Valda absolutely refuses to deal with them. A habit she picked up from her time in Clan Gainstrive.
18. Things they’ll never admit
+++Despite her Charge, and two of her mates, being Tundras, she’s grown fond of the Skydancer twins, Cynfair and Ryn. She first got to know Ryn during the recent Rot of Riot, when she noticed he wasn’t participating in the activities, calling him ‘Tiny Skydancer.’ She listened to him and his worrying over the disappeared Cynfair. Now that the twins are reunited, she’s more than happy for the two of them, despite the fact that Cynfair was involved with the clan’s top criminal, Mereda. Her claws and sword have a thing or two to ‘tell’ the poison witch…

UH… idk no one I can really think of? I wish I had a mentor at school or something it would make my life a lot less stressful :’D
18. Tell us about an early childhood memory.

Bees. And spiders. Most bugs, really. Ticks. Ticks. Ugh. Ticks. Creepy crawlies of all sorts.
