    Summary

    Bianca held his hand. 'Nico, il mio soldatino. What do you want?'

    Nico wanted a lot of things back then. He wanted Bianca to stay alive. He wanted his dad to care for him. He wanted to feel at least a little like he belonged. He wanted the stories in his head to mean something, anything. He wanted Will to stay his best friend, for at least an eternity more.

    And he lost all of them, one after the other. (All except one. Will. Will never left.)

    He's not sure what he wants anymore.

    Summary

    “What kind of bird is this?” Nico asks, because that seems like the kind of question he’s supposed to ask now. It’s not the prettiest bird Nico has seen, it’s actually quite ordinary, but the longer Nico looks at it the more he likes the shades of red at the tip of the bird’s visible wing. Maybe the nice contrast of reddish brown against the green of the tree leaves is why Will took the picture.

    “It’s a partridge.” There’s something off in Will’s voice, and when Nico looks up he seems a little shy. “In a pear tree.”

    It’s been a while since Will last looked shy around Nico. They have grown comfortable with each other’s presence, but now Nico wonders if he’s missing some important point here.

    Summary

    “First day?”

    Will turns to look and sees a young man around his own age, clad in black from head to toe, topped off with a jet-black hair. Will would be worried if it weren’t for the small Spider man backpack the man has swung on his shoulder, and the little boy tugging him along.

    Will shrugs his shoulders, running a hand sheepishly through his hair. “That obvious?”

    “I was the same way”, the man grins, looking a little embarrassed himself. Will can’t help but notice he has nice eyes. “It doesn’t really help that I’m a single parent. Home feels so quiet, you know. But you get used to it, I suppose.”

    Summary

    The bartender slid the shots across the bar to him, calling out a price, and Nico dropped a bill on the bar before downing two of the shots in quick succession. He could hear the bartender saying, “Hey, buddy, maybe you should slow down,” as Nico downed the last one. He pushed off from the bar and started toward a crowded table, focusing only on one very handsome blond.

    Nico set his hand on the table near the blond and leaned in with an, “Excuse me.” The blond turned to look up at him with wide blue eyes, and Nico knew he’d chosen wisely. “Would you care for a dance with me?”
