7. Fireworks (4th of July Special!)

1.6K 46 39

Today is Independence Day, also known
as the 4th of July! Later tonight, there will be fireworks at camp; thankfully, Chiron was in a good mood. He let some Hephaestus kids help work and tweak on the special device for the works of fire. A few people starting asking their others to go watch the fireworks with them, I know Percy did this with Annabeth. Nico didn't ask me yet, he's probably busy. I might ask him, it just depends.

Slipping on my heart shaped American flag sunglasses, I decided to take a little stroll around camp, see what's new.

A little while later, I stopped by to eat a quick breakfast consisted of (favorite breakfast food). After dumping the leftovers for the gods, I headed over to train with my (W/N) for a bit. The more practice, the better! There were a few things that I could use some work on, my flexibility and endurance. To be honest, I was a bit of a potato. But enough of my inner monologuing, time to actually start working!

My weapon was (light/a bit heavy), so that meant I had to be able to move around enough to dodge and attack at the same time... Gymnastics (has/not) been my specialty, but a little practice would do me some good, especially when you're a demigod. Hmm, maybe try a backflip..? Since the gods love me oh-so-very-much, Nico had just walked in. I attempted to do a really badass flip, but ended up falling flat on my face. Yikes, mission failed.

Nico gave a light chuckle at the supposedly amusing sight of me falling on face. "Looks like you're having fun here, (Y/N)."
"Hey! You try attempting a really cool backflip! It's not as easy as it looks", I said irritatingly. "I'll pass. Anyway, I was wondering if you'd want to go to the fireworks show with me?" Nico asked. "Sure, I got nothing better to do", I said trying not to sound desperate. "Okay, I'll pick you up at seven." He then took his leave.

The time for the works of fire has come. Nico and I were seated in the grass among other campers and couples. After a few moments, the show finally started. The fireworks were beautiful, exploding in all types of shapes and direction in almost every color. Blue ones, purple, red, just to name a few. They were mesmerizing to look at, I could watch them for almost forever.

Suddenly, Nico turned to me and said "You know, the fireworks are like you in a way; bright, lively, beautiful, spontaneous." I smiled at those lovely words. I don't think anyone said those things to me. "Wow, thank you. I don't think anyone has ever said that to me.." "Well, they should.", with that, he leaned in and kissed me as the final firework went off.
            "Happy 4th of July"
