    Summary

    Nicolò huffed and drew his knees up to his chest. “Well,” he said, “if that wasn’t what you were asking for, you could have just said so. You don’t need to insult everyone who’s used their –“

    “I understand,” Yusuf cut in hastily before Nicolò could repeat himself. Then the last sentence hit him. “Everyone who’s…you mean this is commonplace? How?”

    “Well,” said Nicolò, loosening his position just slightly, “not commonplace, exactly, but I wasn’t expecting you to be surprised. There are plenty of people who confessed to me that they’d done such a thing.” The same shadow that was apt to appear when he spoke of his past life shuttered down over his eyes, but it soon dissipated. “I was a priest, Yusuf. I’ve heard things.”

    (Nicolò knows everything about sex - except how to do it. He still manages to surprise Yusuf with the confessions he's heard.)

    Summary

    “Are we friends now?” Joe asks. Nicky reaches up to pat Joe on the back, shifting his weight through his hips so he’s got enough power to push Joe into the water. When Joe comes up, spluttering, hair hanging lank across his face, he stares at Nicky, who looks back at him with a lopsided smile.

    “Now we’re friends.”

     

    Ten years, two best friends, one couch that seems to have its own agenda. Friends-to-lovers with all the trimmings.

    Summary

    “Yusuf ibn Ibrahim ibn Muhammad ibn al-Kaysani, called al-Tayyib,” Yusuf said, pointing at himself. He had to repeat himself several times before the man frowned and glanced up at his face.

    “Yusuf,” the man said, pointing at him. He had to try a few times to get the intonation right, after which he carefully attempted the rest of Yusuf’s name, if with less success. It surprised Yusuf that he bothered, given what they’d been doing to each other. The man pointed back at his pale, gaunt face. “Nicolò di Genova.”
