Nico PoV

As I walked to science I noticed that will had been following me the whole time. I began to wonder if he had the same class or if he was just being weird. He hasnt said anything to me since before second period.

I went to open the door when Will ran up in front of me and opened it, holding it open as I walked through. "Thanks," I said to him. He bowed and said "your welcome, kind sir." He sure is odd.

I walked to the back of the class and sat down, followed by Will. As we waited for the teacher to come in, Will decided to start a conversation.
"What's your last name?"
"Di Angelo."
"How old are you?"
"18."
"Why are your clothes so dark."
"Because I want them to be."

He continued to ask me random questions until the teacher walked in. As I predicted the teacher just talked about class procedures and other incredibly unexciting things. I grabbed my notebook out of my bag and began to draw again.

I felt someone poke me in the side. I flinched,  then looked over at Will. "Psst. Hey Nico?"
"Yes?"
"Um do you maybe want come over to my house after school?"
I paused for a moment before answering, "Um sure I guess. I will have to text my parents."
He smiled excitedly. "Okay."

Will PoV

I was walking to my science class when I noticed that Nico was headed in the same direction. He walked to the door and went to open it, when I jumped in from of him and held it open as he walked through. "Thanks." He said.  I smiled and bowed. "Your welcome,  kind sir." What was that?

I watched as Nico, again walked to the back of the classroom and sat down. I sat to the right him and began to ask him questions as we waited for the teacher.
"What's your last name?"
"Di Angelo."
"How old are you?"
"18."
"Why are your clothes so dark."
"Because I want them to be."
I continued to ask him questions until the teacher walked in.

I watched as he grabbed his notebook and started to draw. For a while I just watched in awe as he drew. Not paying any attention to what the teacher was rambling on about.

I gently poked him in the side. At first he flinched then he turned to look at me. "Psst. Hey Nico?" I whispered.
"Yes?" he whispered back.
"Um do you maybe want to come over to my house after school?"
For a moment he didn't say anything. Then, "sure, I guess. I will have to text my parents."
I smiled. "Okay."

That's it for today I will probably update tomorrow. Don't forget to vote and comment.
