    Summary

    Booker no es Nicky, ni es Joe. Su única historia de amor murió hace tiempo. Nunca ha tenido a nadie que le acompañe en el largo camino de la inmortalidad, que le haga sentir que una noche no es igual a la siguiente, que disipe esa oscuridad permanente que se asentó sobre sus hombros cuando murió su hijo menor. Nunca tuvo un alma gemela, ni nada que remotamente se le pareciera. Jamás a alguien que estuviera siempre ahí por él, solamente por él.

    Book amaneció la mayor parte de sus días de inmortal entre sábanas revueltas y sucias y el sabor del alcohol en la garganta. Si alguna vez lo hizo junto a otro cuerpo, fue tras un acto totalmente desprovisto de amor y ternura. Nadie le acarició como si fuera lo más valioso en el mundo. Nadie entrelazó sus dedos con los suyos.

    De repente, todo lo que hay a su alrededor deja de existir.

    Y tendría miedo, si ellos no le hubieran enseñado a no tenerlo.

    Summary

    Yusuf snorts, as if to say it’s mutual. But the Italian struggles to sit upright, wincing and swearing, and – Yusuf cannot pretend he does not want to know, not when a creature will always seek out its like, its matched half as the Greek philosopher Plato wrote, and there is nobody else in the world, to the best of his knowledge, like the two of them. He says, “What’s your name?”

    There’s a very long pause. He can hear the other man deciding whether to lie. But there is no purpose to it, except for bitterness, and the answer is uttered cold and shortly. “Nicolò.”

    (Or: The inevitable backstory.)

    "He has a good heart, that little lad," Finkel said, "I'd love to raise kids with you. In a different life."
