    Summary

    “If you wish, you may accompany me to my village,” he says, the other man’s hands stilling their motion.

    “Do you care for my company?” the man asks hesitantly. “After every time I have killed you?”

    Yusuf shakes his head and a low chuckle escapes him. “No, but it seems that you are in a much sadder state than I am. My mother would think me cruel for abandoning you.”

    After a tentative truce, Yusuf and Nicolò go home.

    Summary

    When a mission goes wrong, the Old Guard team discovers to their consternation that Nicky has forgotten his entire life back to his first death. Which is especially unfortunate because, at the time of Nicky’s first death, he was a murderous Crusader hell-bent on killing Joe.

    Now, stuck in their safe house with a furious religious fanatic who believes the Siege of Jerusalem was that morning and he’s been kidnapped by his enemies, Andy, Booker, and Joe struggle to figure out how to restore Nicky’s memories, while Joe faces the prospect of a future where he never does.

    (Rating changed from T to E as of Ch. 12, however, there are notes so the chapter can be skipped to maintain a T rating if the reader so chooses.)

    Summary

    When Nicolo was younger - much younger, or perhaps just less war-worn - he was often told he had a face of an angel. He wondered now, as he did many times before, if that trait was somehow instrumental to his destiny in priesthood, and thus to his becoming what he now was…

    If he had a face of an angel, then the eyes across from him had to be the eyes of some vengeful god. It had to mean something… He dreamt of those eyes ever since he arrived into this strange, ruthless land - the holiest land. Those eyes must’ve been a premonition, or perhaps a catalyst in their own right…

    Summary

    Joe presses his lips to the mole beside Nicky’s mouth, and watches as the lines crease a smile across his lovely face. There is blood on their hands, yes, but there is also this – cupped palms that hold the shape of love, the empty divots in the gaps between his fingers that ache to slip between Nicky’s."

    Summary

    He tries to forget about the gorgeous Italian neighbor, but found it an impossible task, when few days later, he was once again at the mail area when Joe arrived at his usual time.

    "I'm Nicky by the way." The Italian neighbor―Nicky―introduces himself.

    "Joe." He responds in a way that doesn't leave room for further discussion. Maybe in earlier times, he would have initiated friendly small-talk. He had always enjoyed talking with people, but now his tongue felt heavy, and he only wanted to retreat back to his silent cave.

    Summary

    Joe remembers the Last Day, carves it into his mind so deeply that no moment is forgotten. The Last Day is sacred and holy because it has Nicky in it.

    It’s the last day Joe has Nicky.

    "I did the math in my head while Quynh was underwater,” Joe says cooly as soon as Booker sits, taking the flask from his hand. “I worked out that if it took sixty seconds for her to die, and seconds for her to come back, then in five hundred years she’d died over 250 million times.”

    “Joe, don’t...”

    “..If he’s out there, he’s already died just under 100 thousand times.” Joe finishes. Booker says nothing but lays a hand on his shoulder, because what words can bring comfort in the face of that devastating knowledge?

    Summary

    “Joe?” Nico appears by his side and there’s a look on his face.

    “What?” He sits up immediately, winces as his back cracks in a couple places.

    “Are you okay?”

    “Sure.”

    “You said ‘pebble’."

    “No. I said uh- I said yes to the uh- the thing.” There’s a beat of silence where he tries his best to not feel like an idiot. “The drink!” He blurts, snaping his fingers and oh no. The last one was barely two weeks ago, he thought he would have more time before the next one.

    “Aura?” Nicolo asks as his face closes off with worry.

    Nicky cares for Joe when he has a migraine.

    Summary

    HSavinien's story, read aloud (4min.)

    Joe resents it when fashion flips around to dismissing men’s adornment. It’s tedious to have to find a longer chain to stash his rings and pendants under his shirt, muffled in silk or linen to prevent them clinking when they’re on a stealth mission.

    Summary

    For just a moment, Nicolò wished not for the first time that the poem was about him. And then he reminded himself, that they were friends. Just friends.

    Summary

    “You can’t be serious,” Booker says, slumping in the chair. “How am I the only single one in this group?”

    Nicky blinks. He looks at Joe, and Joe smiles back at him.

    Nicky is not dating anyone. Maybe Booker didn’t know.

    But… Does that mean… Is Joe seeing someone?

    (prompt was: Everyone thinks we’re already dating, but we’re just best friends- oh wait)
