I ran away again. Well technically I got lost so I went around myself. See we were on a field trip to New York. Big place I gotta tell ya. Anyway we were in New York and we were looking at some building and I was trying to look at the structure of the building when everyone else walked off.
So here I am standing breathless in some old alleyway.
I sat down trying to catch my breath when I heard a shuffling noise further down the alleyway. Now if coach hedge were here he would hit me over the head and tell me to leave it alone. But hey I'm a curious kid. The ADHD doesn't help either.
So I went further down the alleyway. The shuffling had stopped but I knew were it was coming from. I stopped and turned. There he was. A small boy not that much younger than me crouched down behind the trash cans. I took a step toward him and he looked up. His hair was a mess and there was dirt on his face. He looked shattered. I heard him curse silently
Before I could stop myself I said, "Was that Italian?"
He looked startled at my words but slowly nodded.
"Um sorry being half Spanish you kinda pick up the difference." I whispered
"You're half Spanish?" He spoke quietly
"Yeah on my...." I trailed off.
I quickly wiped my eyes but he saw it. He stood up and took a step towards me. He gave me a sad smile and hugged me. I hugged back. I hardly knew him. Hell I didn't even know his name but it was nice to be comforted for once instead of being told to get over it.
The hug was over quicker than I thought. Five seconds tops.
He awkwardly looked at his feet. I wanted to say something but I didn't know what.
Never tell them your name Leo. You know it's dangerous I heard my mother's voice in the back of my head.
"I would tell you my name but I've been told that it isn't a good idea."
"It is not and whoever told you is smart!" He said sharply
When did he get all snappy? I thought.
He shook his head, "anyway I have to go."
"M...LEONARDO WHERE ARE YOU!" I heard piper scream.
There goes the no name thing. I thought with a sigh.
"Bye no name. COMING PIPES!" I shouted back.
I took one last glance at the boy. Dark hair and eyes. Aviator gacket, a band t shirt, black jeans and converse. I looked at his hair again and smiled slightly baby bat wings.
I gave him a small wave and ran out of the alleyway straight into piper.
Okay so basically they meet and Nico is in the stage between "happy lovey carey" Nico and "I hate the world" Nico and so that's why they hug. I also really had to add baby bat wings because... Well you will find out in later chapters. I HOPE YOU ENJOY THIS STORY SORRY IF THIS CHAPTER IS BAD BUT THIS IS MY FIRST TIME WRITING VALDANGELO AND I'M BRITISH SO AMERICAN THINGS ARE CONFUSING.
