why did i use nico again

Okay but after Jason and Nico date for awhile, Nico gets a lot more comfortable. Jason gets really into mythomagic for Nico’s sake and ends up falling in love with it.

“Did you hear about the new holographic Hades card?”
What?! What do you MEAN?! Why didn’t you tell me about this Jason. Cmon, we have to go right now. I’ll shadowtravel us somewhere to get it.”

Jason has never seen Nico this excited. Near Jason are Annabeth, Percy, and Piper, all of them giggling. Percy with a relieved smile on his face, says “I’m glad to see he’s happy again.”

Nico kept his gaze averted, trying to suppress the shivers that were building up in his body. "No, it's okay." He said quietly, eyes still fixed on the cave wall. "It didn't hurt. And we need to keep moving, which is why I did it." And because Nico felt almost physical pain in his stomach when he saw Will get hurt, but he didn't say as much. Will eyed Nico suspiciously, and then said. "You say it doesn't hurt, but it has to make you tired, doesn't it? Using your powers always makes you tired."

Nico shook his head. “No. I’m alright,” he lied. He didn’t want Will to make him rest when they really needed to get going as soon as Bob woke up. Will held his hand out tentatively towards Nico. “Can I see again?” he asked. Nico hesitated. He was afraid that Will would try to heal him, but this wasn’t exactly something that could be healed. The magic wouldn’t be able to work on something like this. Nico sighed and slowly placed his wrist back in Will’s hand.

Will turned his wrist around, examining it closely. Nico could tell he was curious about how it worked. “So you suck out cold and tired feelings, and it just turns your veins gray?” He glanced back up at Nico, who rolled the shoulder that wasn’t connected to the hand Will was holding. “Pretty much, yeah. It’s a side effect.” Will looked back down at his wrist, following the veins as far up Nico’s arm as he could before they disappeared under thicker sick. “That’s fascinating. The fact that the feeling goes straight into your veins. It’s so strange. I don’t know where else it would go, but it doesn’t seem like it would go there.” Nico shrugged again, letting Will preoccupy himself with trying to puzzle out why Nico’s powers did what they did. He didn’t know how long Will had been examining his wrist when a voice sounded from the back of the cave. “Son of Apollo is awake.”
