"Yeah?"

"I — can I — can I make you stay?"

"Did you think I wouldn't?"

He only gets a frown in response.

"Nico?"

"Yep?"

"What did you mean earlier? When you asked me if you could make me stay?"

"Well, I thought, it was only a matter of time before, you know —"

"You thought I'd leave?"

"Did you think I wouldn't?"

Will laughs. In another life, Nico might have, too.

⁂⁂⁂

"Will?"

"What's up?"

"I — can I — can I make you stay?"

"What do you mean?" Will asks. He'd thought they were over this.

"No, I — can I make you stay?" repeats Nico, and holds out a ring in response.

Will laughs. Nico does, too.

"Did you think I wouldn't?"

He gets a kiss in response.
