    Summary

    When Joe moved into the empty building across the street from Andy's tattoo studio, Nicky wasn't happy. He told Andy so, loudly, in the middle of the street, when Joe was right behind him. So Joe plants flowers Nicky's allergic to in the planters outside the studio. Nicky graffities the back door of Joe's building. Etc. Both frequent Booker's bakery, but never at the same time. They're constantly competing at the yearly charity bake sales over who has the best baklava. Eight years later, they're still not on speaking terms.

    Then Joe hires Nile, an art student at the local university, as a part-time assistant, and Quynh quits her job as a photographer for National Geographic and comes back, and Andy and Quynh start planning a wedding, and Joe and Nicky are going to have to speak to each other.

    Summary

    They find Joseph’s Papa, and Nicky bids them goodbye not long after that.

    But not before Yusuf tugs on his hand, as it remain in his, and smiles at him softly.

    “You need to take my number,” he says, voice gentle, as he gives Nicky’s phone back to him. He had used it to contact Sebastien after his own had died, like planned. “I’ve already entered it in your phone, but I want you to send me a text so I have a nice surprise when it turns back on again.”

    Nicky feels his mouth go dry as he takes the phone, and looks down. He swipes through his contacts and sure enough there’s a new entry.

     

    Yusuf “Joe/Yufu” al Kaysani.

     

    He snorts, and finds himself writing a message as requested, almost immediately.

     

    Hi, it’s Nicolò “Nicky/Icky” di Genova. Dinner sometime?

    It was originally the Greek form, said Primo, smoke leaking out his nose, silent coloratura, a low and soundless embellishment. It was ours first. Opera.

    I may use some ideas for my Tinder date. Cheers mate.” —S.Le Livre (drunk)
