The next morning Nico woke up slightly confused to an empty
bed. He sat up and frowned, panicking for a split second before the bedroom
door opened and Will came back in. “Hey, sleepy head,” he greeted.
“Hey,” he answered, fighting the urge to pull him back into
the bed. But Will did that on his own. Nico bit his lip and took a breath as
Will sat beside him.
“You freaked out when you didn’t see me, didn’t you?” he
asked with a smile. Nico frowned and couldn’t bring himself to look Will in the
eyes. Then Will pulled Nico’s chin up and smiled. He leaned in and pecked his
lips lightly, erasing the embarrassment. “I made us breakfast,” he murmured.
Nico smirked and leaned forward. “Really?” Will nodded and
cupped his face. “So… you and me… we’re…?”
Will chuckled and ran his hands through his hair. “Will you
go out with me, Nico?” he whispered.
He couldn’t help the smile that spread on his lips. He
leaned forward and kissed him, toppling him back against the bed. Will laughed
against his lips and wrapped his arms around him as he kissed him back. Finally,
he pulled back and smiled. “Yes,” he breathed. “Yes. Of course, yes.”
“Just to be clear… that was a yes?” Nico laughed and kissed
him again and again and again. He missed him. He missed kissing him whenever he
“Say it,” he murmured.
Will hummed and caressed his face gently. “Say what? Yes?”
“No,” he answered. He leaned down, speaking against his
lips. “What I am to you.”
A smile spread on Will’s lips and he took a deep breath. “A
pain in the neck.” Nico frowned and pulled back, glaring at the blue-eyed,
freckled faced idiot beneath him. He laughed, his eyes sparkling and tilted his
head. “Mm. An angel?” he amended. Nico raised an eyebrow and clenched his jaw.
Will chuckled and pulled him into a kiss. “My boyfriend,” he whispered. “You’re
my beautiful, perfect, wonderful boyfriend.”
“Uh-huh,” he murmured. He pulled himself up, covering Will’s
face with his hand as he did. “I’m still not forgiving you for that
pain-in-the-neck comment though,” he said as he went into the bathroom. He
brushed his teeth and washed his face before going to the living room where Will
had set out waffles and eggs with a cup of hot chocolate.
“And now?” he teased in his ear. Nico rolled his eyes and
turned to wrap his arms around him. “Come on, let’s eat.”
