It had been a couple weeks since Leo had come back when Will started acting weird. I tried to talk to him about it but he just told me he was tired. I had asked him 3 times. I didn't know what was wrong and it was annoying me.
I was going to find Will when I literally bumped into Leo. He looked at me and I looked back.
"Sorry Neeks." He mumbled
He then continued to walk to bunker 9 and I watched him until he was in the forest. He was always in bunker 9 and no one even seemed to care. I then understood what he had told me just days before. How did I not realize this?
I was in the middle of my internal debate when Will walked past.
"Oh gods HEY WILL!" I shouted.
I caught up with him and grabbed his hand. He shook it off and looked at me with a glare. This threw me off.
"I have to go meet Kierra." He bitterly replied before walking off
I just stood there. Staring at the place where he once stood. My head felt slightly dizzy and I felt suffocated. Clumsily, I walked to my cabin and lay down.
Percy burst into my cabin and started singing the "dinner song".
I groaned and threw a pillow at him. He shrieked and I heard Annabeth laugh. I raised my hand from the bed and she gave me a high five. But instead of taking her hand away, she twisted my arm and pulled me up.
"Time for dinner Nico!" She laughed
"Ugh fine just get off me!" I groaned.
She let go of my hand and dragged Percy to the door.
"See you at dinner!" Annabeth called and closed the door.
*Actual dinner now*
I walked in and gave a salute to Annabeth which she returned. I waved at Percy. I looked at Leo and did the "secret handshake". It was a thing that Leo and his mother used to do and he decided to share it with me. He did it back and saluted at me before turning back to his food.
I was sitting by myself at the campfire when Leo plopped down beside me. I was expecting a joke of some sort like usual but he said nothing. He just sat staring at the flames.
"Hey Leo?" I said, touching his arm.
A shock went up my arm and my mind felt cramped. Like it was trying to remember a thing from long ago. Then it hit me like a tidal wave. The real first time we had met. Leo's eyes shifted from the fire to me. They were wide and confused.
"You...you were the boy from the alley?" His voice shook as he spoke
"Yeah I was Leonardo." I laughed
He gave me a look and laughed. I laughed with him. That's when I noticed the seven were silent. I looked at them to see them staring back at me. But as soon as I saw it they looked away again. Weird.
Before we knew it campfire was over and Will was walking towards me. He always liked to walk me back to my cabin. He stopped in front of us and held out his hand. I gave Leo a brief hug and took Will's hand.
"See you for training tomorrow!" I called after Leo.
He turned with a smile and gave me a small wave.
"When did you two get so close?" Will asked.
"Oh we kinda met when I ran away but we for some reason only remember now. So we caught up a lot more." I explained briefly
There was a lot more but he didn't need to know the details.
Will nodded slowly and stopped walking. We were standing in front of my cabin. I stood up on my tiptoes to give him a small kiss. As I was pulling back he surged forward kissing me with force. He pushed me against the railing and I tried to stop him but he wouldn't. I pushed on his chest roughly making him stumble back. He tried to come back but I pushed him again.
"GET AWAY FROM ME!" I screamed
I didn't care if the whole camp heard me. I just wanted him to leave me alone. I heard cabin doors opening as I slid to the ground.
People started gathering and i just sat with my arms wrapped around myself. A familiar voice caught my attention and I looked up. Leo was standing talking to Piper and Chiron worriedly. He looked over and we made eye contact. His eyes softened and he said something to the two before walking towards me. I got up from the ground as he walked towards me. Leo wrapped his arms around me and just held me.
Then the question, I was dreading, left his mouth.
"What happened?" He whispered.
Explaining what happened sounds simple yeah? Well it's not when you can't stop shaking and crying. But eventually I got the story across. Leo let go of me with an angry expression. Oh gods I couldn't help but think.
Before I knew what was happening, Leo had turned and started walking towards Will who was talking to Chiron and Piper. Will turned to the Latino and Leo let it all out.
"YOU ASSHOLE HOW DARE YOU DO THAT TO NICO. THAT IS SEXUAL HARASSMENT YOU KNOW THAT RIGHT? WHAT IN THE GODS MADE YOU THINK THAT YOU COULD TRY AND TAKE ADVANTAGE OF HIM. YOU....." He then started cursing in Spanish.
Everyone in the camp was either staring at Nico or at Leo and Will. Will started to say something but before he could Leo punched him. Percy grabbed him by the waist as he started screaming in Spanish and threw me a look. I motioned to keep them apart and Percy nodded, taking Leo back to cabin 3 to cool off. Annabeth and Piper followed not too far behind.
Chiron told everyone to go back to their cabins and that he would deal with Will. So everyone started to leave at their own pace.
Chiron gave me a nod and I walked to my cabin door. I looked across to cabin 3 to see Leo pacing angrily in the window. I also saw the other three trying to calm him down. I shook my head and walked into my cabin
