I think the universe is on my side

Heaven and Earth have finally aligned

Days are good and that's they way it should be


Nico first ran into him on the way to his biology class. They had both dropped all of their books and papers. Nico looked up. The other boy was all blond hair and blue eyes. They stared at each other for awhile before Nico apologized. The other boy blushed, which made him even more adorable.

Nico was late to class.


You sprinkle star dust on my pillow case

It's like a moon beam brushed across my face

Nights are good and that's the way it should be


Nico sat straight up in bed. His clock read 2:16 am. Nightmares, again. He tried to think of something, anything to calm him down. His mind settled on the boy he'd run into earlier that day. A boy he didn't even know the name of, a boy that he didn't even know, was helping him out of his nightmare. Life was weird like that.


And I see colors in a different way

You make what doesn't matter fade to grey

Life is good and that's the way it should be


Nico saw the boy again at the pizza place in town. They were properly introduced this time. The boy's name was Will. Nico felt skeletal butterflies flapping around in his chest when Will asked if he wanted to go grab a coffee sometime.


You make me sing ooh la la laa

You make a guy go ooh ooh I'm in love, love


Nico felt lighter that week. He didn't have any nightmares. Even Piper asked him what was up. He didn't tell her.


Did you see that shooting star tonight?

Were you dazzled by the same constellation?

Did you and Jupiter conspire to get me?

I think you and the Moon and Neptune got it right

'Cause now I'm shining bright


Nico couldn't believe it. He'd had an actual date with an actual boy that actually went really well. He felt like singing.

Because now he had an actual boyfriend.
