Still Another Death in the Family

I have grim news. My paternal grandmother, after going through a serious decline in health, has died. Please offer prayers and wishes for my family.

The disturbingly surreal part is that this is the second time in barely over a year that a family member died on the same day that I took a trip to a movie theater. My brother died after I went on my own to see Zootopia. Now my grandmother has died after I went along with a social club to see the new Power Rangers. In between those times my grandfather also passed away also.

The point is that these are rough times for me, my parents, my sister-in-law, and others around us. I can only hope that I can be good to all of them. Please offer us your good will.

okay but 

  • nico realizing this is the first time he wasn’t alone and depressed on valentine’s day
  • will being an endless stream of compliments and affection
  • nico actually trying to match the affection because even though he thinks valentine’s day is way overrated he’s a sucker for traditions
  • nico carrying flowers with extreme caution so that they don’t die in his hands before he gets to give them to will
  • the flowers dying anyways, and will still loves them and puts them in a vase in the medical tent anyways
  • dreamy eyes
  • being the cutest couple in camp since percy and annabeth are gone, and please, travis and katie have nothing on them
  • nico shadow-traveling them to the eiffel tower in las vegas because paris is for another year
  • nico not second-guessing if will truly cares about him or not because he trusts will when he says he loves him
