    Summary

    “Don’t -” Nicolo begins, but has no idea what should come next. He has no idea what he needs the man not to do. He only knows what he wants the man to do, and that is to lay hands upon him again. Nicolo has the sudden, mad urge to drop the knife, close the distance between them in the hopes that he might be killed a second time.
