    Summary

    A different path for the group.

    It starts in Marrakesh.
    Things go a little differently.
    There are many reason for this but it all steams from one small change.

    Nicky's 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 was 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.

    Summary

    Andy dreamt. She used to have portentous dreams, once. Now they were usually unremarkable. This one was...not.

    She dreamt that she was surrounded by absolute darkness, buried underneath the earth. She wasn’t afraid, or dying – she didn’t even seem to be breathing. She was just there, as time spun on around her.

    And then noises. Voices, footsteps, spades and shovels. Someone was digging.

     

    Or: Andy used to be a god

    Summary

    THE wind was a torrent of darkness among the gusty trees,
    The moon was a ghostly galleon tossed upon cloudy seas,
    The road was a ribbon of moonlight over the purple moor,
    And the highwayman came riding —
    Riding — riding —
    The highwayman came riding, up to the old inn-door

    Summary

    “I just—” Joe settles into bed, curling into Nicky’s side like he does every night. “I just wish—”

    How? How can he say that he wishes it were as easy as a condom breaking, a mistake between two teenagers, or as easy as a husband impregnating his wife—something done four times with ease—and not sound like a cruel, jealous, petty man?

    “I wish I could give this to you,” Joe says finally, his voice soft.

    Joe and Nicky have been trying to adopt for nearly a decade without success. With the impending arrival of a new addition, Joe—hurt, frustrated, adrift—learns that love, hope, healing, family, doesn't always happen according to plan.

    Summary

    There's no good times
    These impossible years
    That tattoo, one last bruise
    These impossible years
    The bitter pill she swallowed
    No scarred souvenir
    Just a beachfront of bad blood
    And a coast that's unclear

    Summary

    Nile takes a deep breath. Tilts her head to one side, then the other. Evaluates the distance between the soccer ball at her feet and the makeshift goal. 
    “You gonna shoot, or are we gonna stand here all night?” her dad teases. He’s standing in goal, knees slightly bent and arms out, ready to block her shot. She hasn’t been able to get a shot past him all day, but this time’s the one. She can feel it in her bones.

    Summary

    The recording dissolves to static, then loops over. Nile steps closer to watch it again, and DZ does not back up, which is a good sign.

    After a couple more loops, Nile tells her, “There’s no Kaysani settlement on Tatooine.” DZ lets out a dismayed descending note. Nile adds, “But there is a Senator Yusuf al-Kaysani.”

    She could swear Dizzy’s status light gets a little brighter. Nile smiles, pleased to be of assistance. “Can you play back the whole message?”

    Not without the correct authorizations.

    “Okay.” Nile sits back on her heels and weighs logistics against the hours of daylight left. “I’ll make you a deal. Stick around long enough for me and Jay to scrap your pod, wait out the night at my farm, and I’ll take you to Mos Eisley tomorrow. If al-Kaysani is on Tatooine right now, that’s where he’ll be.”

    Summary

    When Nile was ten years old her mom had sat her down and told her the facts of life, so she’d been prepared for it when her period started the following year—thankfully not in the middle of English class, as had happened to one of her friends.

    As puberty progressed and she hit her mid-teens, the flow got heavier and the symptoms a whole lot more intense. On those days, her brother’s sole life purpose seemed to be to test her patience. Maybe he wasn’t always so bad, though, as long as he supplied her with more snacks.

    In her early twenties she discovered more effective ways of dealing with the monthly miseries. Her ex-girlfriend might have had hang-ups about having sex while they were on their periods, but her friends-with-benefits not-boyfriend had no such qualms.

    Freshly inducted into the Marine Corps after completing basic training, Nile found that she and her fellow cadets were expected to get on with the job, with no quarter given for “girl stuff.” Fortunately, she’d planned ahead for this.

    Several weeks after meeting Andy and the guys, Nile spotted a box of tampons on the bathroom counter and scrambled to pull up her period tracker app.
