    Summary

    Nile’s sword fighting skills are being put to the test when a question pops into her mind. With half her attention still on the weapon in her hand, her plan to bring up the topic at an appropriate time goes out the window as she blurts out, “Have you ever been in a haunted house?”

    Nicky frowns, his longsword paused in mid-air. She’s fortunate that the question didn’t arise while sparring with Andy because the older woman would definitely stab her just to teach her a lesson about getting distracted during a fight.

    Ever the gentleman, Nicky gracefully withdraws his sword and straightens, answering her question seriously, “Well, I admit a fair number of people have died in our houses, but I don’t believe any of their souls have remained to haunt us.” His arresting sea storm eyes meet her gaze full on as he says sincerely, “Despite the occupational hazard, we don’t take any death lightly and we do our best to respect the dead no matter what misdeeds they may have done while alive.”

    ***

    Nile introduces her new family to her favourite holiday and they go all out for their first American-style Halloween, complete with costumes, pumpkin carving, movies, and endless autumn desserts.

    Summary

    Joe's life wasn't exactly great and then to wake up and learn he's now immortal? That's going to take some getting used to.

    Fortunately, his new family is there to guide him through it. During Joe's first week as an immortal, he: takes a strange road trip across Europe, learns to fight, helps take down a pharmaceutical CEO, comes to terms with his place in the world, and falls in love.

    Summary

    Booker was drowning. Whether it was in his dreams, or every waking hour he spent alone, surrounded by those he called his family. Maybe that was why he was so quick to jump at the chance of a way out.

    Summary

    And somewhere between missions, bad dreams and spooning, or maybe from the very beginning, a yearning so strong blossomed in Nile she was scarcely able to breathe. She had a deep desire to peel away the years and love what had survived through ages.

    A discovery of a new relationship whilst uncovering the past. Nile struggles with her feelings for Andy, especially whilst frequently recurring nightmares of Quynh cast a shadow over them both.

    Summary

    Andromache is so tired that her mortality seems like a welcome gift. Three visitors, however, offer her the chance to look one more time at the past, the present she has shaped and the future that will be shaped either by her presence or her absence.

    (Inspired by A Christmas Carol, though it’s not Christmassy!)

    Summary

    Nicky history as he tells Nile can be summed up like this:
    Nicolo was a priest for a very short time before he died. Then life it horrible for a bit. Then he met Yusuf. Then he met Andromache and Quynh. Life was very good. Then very bad for a few years. Then okay and the good again. Then they met Booker. Life has be mostly good. Now they have Nile. Then end.

    This of course leaves out a lot of detail.

    A different path for the group.

    Summary

    Pain has an element of blank;
    It cannot recollect
    When it began, or if there were
    A day when it was not.

    It has no future but itself,
    Its infinite realms contain
    Its past, enlightened to perceive
    New periods of pain.

    - Emily Dickinson, "The Mystery of Pain"

    Stories demand to be told. Scars are the body's way of telling a story. But with immortal lives leading to pristine conditions, these stories must find somewhere else to be shared.

    Summary

    “I wanted a choice.” His hand lingers on her diaphragm, steadying her furious, heaving breaths, and there’s nothing but defeat left in him as he says, “I wanted a choice for you and me, Andy. For us to move past all this fucking violence if we wanted to.”

    Andy scoffs, and winces as Booker moves lower, closer to her wound. “And do what?”

    “You really don’t remember, do you?”

    When Andy finds out the truth behind Booker’s betrayal, it makes her take stock of the past she’s left behind and the legacy ahead of her. She has a choice to make—one that becomes even more difficult when she comes face to face with Quynh again, and finds Booker tortured by her hand. A choice between living life between cycles of violence or carving out some semblance of normalcy.

    Andy has left her mark on countless lives across the millennia, but the thought of leaving a bit of herself behind scares the shit out of her.

    Summary

    Yusuf al-Kaysani doesn’t forget things easily. He knows his father doesn't like being disturbed while in meetings with Mediterra’s royal court. He knows where Quynh swims off to when she needs time alone. He knows what stories Booker likes to hear when his insomnia reappears.

    Yusuf al-Kaysani doesn’t forget things easily, which is the reason he has a fool-proof explanation prepared to give his father as to why he and Booker are currently exploring a sunken ship instead of attending a feast celebrating...well, that he isn’t quite certain of - not because he forgot, but because he hadn’t been paying attention when the subject was discussed. It had something to do with the royal family, ergo something to do with him by association, so Yusuf is sure he’d rather eat sand for the rest of his life than waste his time sitting in a chair and listening to pointless smalltalk.

    Summary

    She was starting to feel almost normal when Hap cautiously whispered, “Nile. Did…did you dream?”

    “Yes,” she said, feeling a chill, “Four people in a boxcar. Three men and one woman; I just saw their faces and not their daemons.” She chose not to think about that cold, dark place. It was hardly an earth shattering dream. If she were speaking to anyone but her daemon she would have tried to dismiss it.

    Hap let out a strained laugh, “I dreamed too. About four daemons whose humans I couldn’t see…”

    Summary

    “It’s rare for an omega to go through a second bonding unless their first mate has passed on,” Copley comments, his tone serious. “A second incomplete bonding is practically unheard of. Professor Di Genova could have been admitted to a hospital to treat the heat symptoms he’s experiencing following this second bite. We can’t really say what will happen should the current bond be dissolved.”

    Nicky is a 30-year-old omega who teaches at the prestigious Scythian Academy. Joe is a 17-year-old alpha student who goes into his first rut during one of Nicky’s classes. On their way to the medical bay, Joe pins Nicky against a wall and bites on his scent gland, bonding them together.

    This is what happens next.
