    Summary

    Joe smiled. “You know, a famous philosopher defines madness as doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.”

    Nicky’s frown deepened. “That’s Einstein. Our bets are older than that man by many lifetimes. And I’m not doing the same thing over and over again, as you put it,” Nicky placed his arms on Joe’s shoulders and laced his fingers behind his neck, feeling the shorter, softer curls there. “I always use different ingredients.”

    Joe chuckled. “Fine, then you are a glutton for punishment,” he kissed Nicky’s nose. “Because your mission remains unchanged, my heart. To fool the oldest tastebud in the world. What madness, insanity, a futile endeavour, truly.”

    ”Oh ye of little faith,” Nicky said dryly. “I have the help of the oldest man in the world, who would stand by me no matter how futile my endeavour is.”

    Joe snorted. “Alas, it's a fault of mine, truly. I’d be there for my beloved even if he ruins me everytime.”

    “Such a tragic character,” Nicky quipped, eyes dancing with mischief.

     

    Or, Nicky is on a quest to fool the oldest tongue in the world. Joe is all to happy to assist.

    Summary

    Hannibal looks away. Keeps his posture perfectly straight and his breathing perfectly even. "Will Graham is dead," he repeats. The words come out flat, hollow and distant. They do not sound real. "That is a surprise."

    *

    Summary

    If Nicky had his way, he’d storm out of the al-Kaysanis’ home—but then, if Nicky had his way, he wouldn’t even be here in the first place.

    Remembering the conversation he had with his mother two months ago does nothing to abate Nicky’s anger, so he focuses on cutting his tuna into perfectly even bites.

    Joe’s staring at him like he’s insane, which only heightens his irritation.

    Joe’s father stands and clears his throat, glass raised. “To legacies,” he says. “To dynasties. To new family.” Joe’s father looks at Nicky and smiles. He and Joe have the same dimples, Nicky notices. “And to the marriage of our two sons.”
