So this is Reyna and Nico from Heroes of Olympus. 'Tis for Aliona Potter~ ENJOY MAH STRAWBERRIES. 🍓
Nico dreamed fitfully.
Reyna was being torn apart by beasts of Hell he wouldn't control, they wouldn't listen to him, no matter what he said or did, they just kept shredding Reyna to pieces. Her blood stained the ground red and clumps of... Whatever was inside the body came out and Nico felt sick. He turned his eyes away from the ground and his ears away from her screams and pleads.
He awoke screaming, a cold swear drenching his body. Just a dream, he told himself.
Still, he couldn't but to swing his legs over his bed and splash cool water on his face that was already slick with tears.
He left his cabin and realized that it was not yet morning. He crossed Camp Half-Blood and sat at the lake, his knees against his chest. He watched the river trickle over the rocks carefree-ly, trying to relax.
"Hey," a voice behind him said.
Nico was so lost in thought at that point, he almost didn't hear. Almost. He turned around and saw that it was Reyna. All relaxation he had achieved went away when he saw her face.
Reyna was so beautiful. "Hi," he responded, trying to play it chill and lax. It didn't work.
"What are you doing at this ungodly hour in the morning?"
"Just... Thinking, I guess.." Shrugged Nico, and patted the ground next to him. "You can join me if you want to."
"Love to." Nico's heart fluttered as she sat cross-legged next to him.
Nico had to hold back his inner fangirl as she spoke. "This has just been so stressful... I'm glad someone is here with me now."
Reyna smiled. "I think I like you, Nico."
Nico leaned forward. "Wha-what? You do?"
Hesitating just a little bit, he slowly pressed his mouth against Reyna's. She didn't pull away. Instead, she brought the two of them closer together, fingers entwined in his hair and their bodies right up against each other.
Reyna grinned at at Nico. Things were perfect.
