    Summary

    “You left me to wake up all alone in our bed.” He said, his voice a velvet-soft rumble into the still morning air.

    “I was going to make you breakfast.” Nicky replied, a little breathless as he held up the meticulously trimmed basil cuttings in his hand, as if that could sway Yusuf’s mind.

    His hair fell into his eyes, and Nico pushed it back with his free hand, letting it fall around his ears and frame his face down to his cheekbones. It was long— he hadn’t had it cut since long before the Merrick job, and ever since he had simply not bothered with it.

    He looked like one of the angels of old poetry. He looked like the Renaissance muse he had once been— the reclined nude in that Florentine piazza, more pure than the marble under his feet, and more luxurious than the pillows under his head and body. He had gazed at him just as he was now, full of liquid heat and a gleam that told Yusuf with all but words how he wished to ravish him. He was unabashed under Yusuf’s brush, just miles of soft skin, and his long brown hair falling in his eyes.

    Summary

    "Numbness lingers in the wake of their buried grief. They’re performing all the motions of healing, but Nicky is still hungry for justice in a way that’s more of an itch than a stomach-ache, like if he could just drag his nails deep enough into his skin, into Joe’s skin, he could satisfy it."

    In which Nicky is not handling Booker's betrayal as well as he'd like.

    Summary

    "A few hundred steps from the gates, an arrow flies through the air and pierces Nicolò’s throat, the pointed tip ripping through his jugular between one blink and the next. He falls backward, choking on his own blood while his fellow crusaders march onward to the wall.

    He dies there, too ashamed to offer himself up to God, deciding instead to let his soul rot into the ground, let his body become a home to the insects and the flies.

    (In another universe, the archer is jostled at the last second and the arrow fails to find its mark. Yusuf al-Kaysani meets you at the wall. You kill each other, and then rise up from the dead and repeat the process.)"

    A story about forgiveness and letting go, in three parts.

    Summary

    “You are so beautiful,” Nicky says after a moment. “I do not tell you enough. Your eyes,” he brushes fingertips over Joe’s eyebrows. “Your lips. Do you know, I dream about you every night. Waking from those dreams with you by my side is all I could have ever asked for in this life.”

    “I do love it when you make speeches,” Joe says, stroking his cheek. “But what brings this on?”

     “I do not tell you enough,” Nicky repeats. “I need you to know.”

     
    Or, they return to Malta in summer, when the days are long and the fruit hangs ripe in the trees.
