No. Leo thought Of course not. I’m not in love with Nico di Angelo.
"Uh, Leo?" Nico had said giving him a confused look.
I had been staring at him. Oh gods…
Nico had been sitting on the railing of the Argo II, his soft hair was being blown in the air showing his dark tired eyes.
“Oh, morning Nico.” He cleared his throat. Nico nodded in reply and got up off the railing of the Argo II. His hair was messy, in the adorable way. Leo felt his face turn a light pink. He was still staring.
"You alright there Valdez? You’re being weird again." Nico smirked and put on his aviator jacket that was hanging off of the railing. Leo thought Nico was acting weird too, happy, sweet, around him.
Snap out of it!
"No. I mean-Uh, yes! Perfectly fine. We should probably…Yep." With that he turned and left walkway, and hated himself instantly. Why does he have to do that? Be all…cute. No! Hes not—Ugh.
Leo had been working with the mechanics of the Argo II when Nico showed up behind him without a warning.
"Gods!" Leo nearly jumped out of his seat. "Stop doing that, its creepy."
Nico laughed a soft, quiet laugh. That rare laugh Leo loved. “Sorry, hope I’m not interrupting anything.”
"Nope, not at all" He said too quickly. "I’m…not busy."
"Are you feeling OK, Leo? You’re acting differently today."
Leo nodded not looking at him.
Nico joined in next to Leo looking over his shoulder at what he was doing. Leo’s face grew bright red as he worked. He felt Nico’s breath as he sighed, interested in what he was fixing. He turned to Nico. Nico’s expression was soft, his dark hair covered his eyes. He was extremely attractive.
It felt soft and endearing.
Leo’s lips were planted on Nico’s, he didn’t even remember it happening but he didn’t want it to stop. Nico hadn’t done anything. He wasn’t sure what Nico was thinking, whether he wanted the kiss or not. Leo pulled back and turned his face away from Nico’s. “I-I’m sorry, I didn’t mean…I just got—” he was interrupted by Nico’s hand turning Leo’s face towards his, his lips pressed onto Leo’s surprising him. Leo dropped everything and returned the kiss his hands fingering through his messy hair. They both pulled away from each other.
"Is this why…you’re acting so weird…?" Nico asked his lips brushing softly over his with every word. Leo nodded slowly. Nico smirked into another kiss, Leo following his lead. CRASH! The two of them fell backwards onto the ground in surprise, a pipe burst near the engine. Leo got up quickly and made started making repairs as quickly as he could. Nico laughed a pure, true laugh. Leo grinned. He loved his laugh. “I guess I’ll leave you to your repairs.” Nico smiled towards him and left the engine room. Leo felt flustered. I’m in love with Nico di Angelo.
