    Summary

    “Why do you like me?” Nico asked suddenly, his voice low.

    Yusuf stared at him.

    One hundred years together—and Nicolò was asking why he liked him.

    “Definitely take your time answering,” Nico said dryly.

    Summary

    “You have a lovely mole,” Yusuf said. Nicolò didn’t catch his last word. He looked at Yusuf questioningly.

    Yusuf tapped on his mole gently as he rinsed his blade. “Mole,” he repeated in Arabic.

    “Mole,” said Nicolò in Zeneize. Then he tried to imitate the Arabic word.

    Yusuf smiled at his effort. His dimples were showing. They had been mostly hidden by his beard, it felt like a discovery every time Nicolò saw them.

    Nicolò didn’t know what possessed him when he reached out to touch that spot and said, “Dimple.” in Zeneize.

    “Dimple,” repeated Yusuf and of course he did perfect the first time. He said the word back in Arabic. Nicolò tried to repeat it. By the way Yusuf smiled, it looked like he did a passable job.

    Then it’s all over too quickly. Yusuf scooped some water and rinsed Nicolò’s face, then used his own shirt to dab it. “All done,” he said.

    Then their eyes locked and something else, something that in hindsight felt inevitable, shifted.
