Better Now Than Never


"Well." Percy twisted around, looking grim, "We're trapped.'

"I'd noticed." Nico hissed, holding out his own sword.

"If you have any ideas besides general snark, I'd be glad to hear it."

Nico looked up at the sky with a 'why me' expression on his face, then back down to his sword, then over to Percy, his eyebrows furrowed in thought.

Percy noticed his staring, "What?"

Nico gave him the most peculiar look, then looked down at his sword, then back at Percy.

"Fuck it."

"What're yo-mhmm."

Before Percy's brain could catch up and understand that Nico ii Angelo was kissing him, Nico had already pulled away and was looking back at the monsters like nothing had happened.

Percy blinked a few times, then shook his head, clearing his thoughts. He turned back to face the army that was slowly converging on them.

"Well Nico, that was nice and everything, but it doesn't really help with our problem."

And for the first time in a long time, Nico di Angelo laughed.


A/N: I can't help but feel that Percy's reaction to Nico's crush would just be like "Is there anybody who doesn't have a crush on me?" Just for fun short that I came up with in class. I have so many Nico feels right now, I needed a bit of humour.
