“Uh, well, uh, I don’t know,” he stammered.
“Oh come on, you should have some fun. It will be easy, and quick, I promise. Could you put that song on repeat, please?””
““Is there someone you know buried here?” Lucy asked, the question not really helping the awkward silence.
“Uh, well, no not really,” muttered Nico.
“Oh, is this just a quiet spot for you then?” she continued.

“Lucy’s voice broke him out of his stupor. “Are you alright, Nico?” she asked, looking a little worried.
“That guy’s raving mad; how can you put up with him?”
Lucy laughed. “Well, considering he’s the doctor who saved our lives several times, I think it’s safe to say that we owe it to him.””

“Doctor, turn it off!” Peter yelled, rushing to the Doctor’s side.”
