“Ready to join the other Cabins for sword practice?” Luke asks, locking up the storage room.
Percy worries his bottom lip, faltering in his steps. “Um…”
Ice-blue eyes settle on the younger demigod and Luke puts up a smile, urging him closer.
“Actually, I was kind of hoping we’d keep the one-on-one lessons,” Percy admits, stopping in front of Luke, heat rising to his cheeks as they lock gazes.
Luke raises his brows pleasantly.
“I’m not avoiding anybody–”
“But you’d rather have alone time with me?”
Percy’s jaw drops comically.
Luke chuckles, pressing a kiss atop the boy’s head.
