    Summary

    Joe knows.

    He knows the same way he’d known what Nile was when she’d first met him in that Starbucks, a day after he’d moved into his new place. That innate tug in his belly, the unmistakable prickle behind his ears that tells him: danger, careful, just like you.

    It’s unmistakable now, too. He and Nile are not the only supernatural beings in this club tonight.

    And one of them is looking directly at Joe.

    Summary

    Together, they strip the corpses of fallen soldiers like scavengers, sending prayers of forgiveness to their respective Gods, and take what they can carry on two horses. Eilat is several weeks of hard riding away, and from there Yusuf is insistent they take a merchant ship to Aden. Nicolo soon loses all feeling in his behind and thighs. Yusuf continues to alight from his horse as if having awoken from a pleasant nap. “It’s all about rhythm,” he tells Nicolo, moving his hips to demonstrate. Nicolo contemplates killing him, for whatever good that will do.

    Yusuf asks Nicolo to run away with him; Nicolo agrees, with reservations. Serious reservations. If only he could remember what those were.

    Summary

    It’s an ordinary night in April when Nicky wakes up out of a deep sleep, gripped by the sudden realization that when Joe had him over for dinner the previous November, it was a date. Joe—visiting his family in Amsterdam for the week—is mercifully not sleeping beside him to be woken by this realization, and Nicky swings his legs out of bed to sit on the edge of the mattress and think as hard as he’s ever thought in his life.

    A date.

    It was so clearly a date.

    Joe was wooing him and Nicky hadn’t a clue.

    Summary

    New homeowner Joe has hired contractor Nicky for his planned renovations. He very quickly begins to regret that decision - not because of Nicky’s quality of work, but… just how is Joe supposed to react when the most gorgeous man he has ever seen is giving him pointers on how hard to squeeze his caulk?

    Summary

    Keane feels a shiver down his spine, and realises, as he tastes the blood of his heart in his throat, just how afraid he is of the man on the table, now. Handcuffed and naked and helpless, he’s still the most dangerous thing Keane’s ever seen in all his life.

    Allen types something on his computer.

    The IV drips slowly into Eight’s chest.

    Keane gets to work.
