There was one ceiling tile that wasn’t completely aligned
with the others. It had been driving Nico crazy since he woke up. But he found
himself staring at it anytime he was alone. Which was often. Aside from the
nurses and doctors that checked on him, no one else came in.
Ever since Will’s outburst, Nico had asked to keep visitors
away. He couldn’t bring himself to tell his friends what had happened. Surely
they’d heard it too. Surely they’d heard all the things Will said, all the
things he’d called him.
The moment kept replaying in his head as he stared at the
tile. Over and over. Even when he slept, he didn’t get a break from it. In the
back of his mind, the shouts were still echoing.
“Ready to go home today?” Dr. Ass- something asked him. Nico
shrugged. “I suggest you stay away from alcohol. You’re too young to give
yourself liver damage.”
Nico rolled his eyes and pulled at the ends of his hair.
“Yeah, well. Easy for you to say. You have your life made. Nothing to run away
from. I’m trying to run away from everything.”
“Everything?” the doctor asked.
“I’m not suicidal,” he snapped, knowing that if he said the
wrong thing, he’d have to stay longer and get checked into a psych ward. “I’m
just saying… drinking stops the thinking. It always has. So I drink enough to
“Well what were you trying to forget this time? Because
obviously it didn’t work until you reached unconsciousness.” Nico averted his
gaze and stared at the IV in his arm. “Alright then. I hope I don’t have to see
you back here with the same problem, Nico.” He nodded and watched as the doctor
removed the IV and gave him some regular clothes that Percy and Annabeth had
brought in for him.

The baby shower went off without a hitch. Riley had to keep
her greetings with the boy’s short due to Maya’s arrival. This was her friend’s
day and she wasn’t going to spend it revisiting the past.
Maya makes her rounds, thanking everyone for coming. When
she gets to Zay and Lucas’ table she’s a bit surprised to see them. “Hey, I
didn’t know you were back in town.” She says giving Lucas an awkward side hug.
“I didn’t know you were pregnant until last night.” He
jokes. Zay shakes his head before standing up to embrace her.
The two of them remained extremely close since high school.
A lot of people assumed they’d get together eventually but funny enough they
actually became best friends. Zay was Maya’s right hand man while Riley was
traveling the world for work. He hadn’t seen her in over a year so the
pregnancy was just as much of a surprise to him as it was to Lucas. Although
Lucas didn’t seem to care all that much.
As they’re exchanging pleasantries, a tall dark haired guy
walks over and wraps an arm around the mom to be, while simultaneously kissing
her on the cheek.
“Hey I remember
you two.” The guy says extending his arm to shake their hands. It wasn’t until
they got a good look at him that they realized it was Josh Matthews. Riley’s
uncle and Maya’s long time love.
“Josh! Hey man, congratulations.” Lucas says shaking his
hand firmly. “Yeah, congrats.” Zay says giving him a friendly hug.
“You guys know Riley’s here, right?” Josh asks, confused by
why they were sitting all the way in the back by themselves. “She’s right over
there.” He points her out. As if Lucas needed him to do that. He hasn’t let her
out of his sight since she walked in.
“Yeah she said hi already.” Zay answers, shooting Maya a
After a few shared awkward glances the soon to be parents
excuse themselves and return to the rest of the party.
Every now and then Riley would look over to where they were
sitting and she’d smile but she never came back over.

(and looking back in hindsight are actually problematic because they promote the Nice Guy mentality and/or demonize their significant other by placing themselves on a pedestal in a situation where that kind of victimization is unnecessary ala aubrey graham)
