Nico stood triumphant and confident. His face unwavering. “I want to go flying.”
“You… want to fly?”
“If you want to, of course. I’m not going to force you t–”
“I’d love to!” Jason had to bite back his impatient urge after that. To play it cool, he added, “I mean – if that’s cool with you.”
“That’s why I asked, Sparky.”
When Piper or Leo called him ‘Sparky’, it was normal and affectionate. But Nico saying it was something so much more powerful. His voice held dominion over Jason and hearing Nico call him 'Sparky’ was giving Jason a hard time controlling his feelings. “But I can’t just – make you fly.”
“I have to… you know…”
“Are… are you okay with that?”
Nico’s face looked as if it had a faint red shade. “Of course. I thought this through already.”
“… Okay uhm… when?”
“When do you have time?”
“Yeah, I have to eat with Will tonight, I promised him. But after that, I’ll be free.” Jason’s heart always shivered when Nico talked about Will. They were broken up now, but Jason still felt a tinge of jealousy. Will was a good guy, just not good for Nico. Jason wasn’t the right guy for Nico either, but he couldn’t help his feelings.
”… Okay. Sounds good.“ Nico was about to turn around when Jason stopped him. "Wait, Nico?”
“Can I ask… why you want to go flying?”
“I… I had a dream. I just want to try it.” He was avoiding the reasoning.
“Do you need to talk about your dreams? We have bad dreams if you need someone to talk to –”
“I’m good, Jason. Thanks. I’ll see you after dinner?”
