    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

    “Aha! I know just the tale,” Yusuf finally says, slapping the bed victoriously. “And I will bet it is even funnier than the one you just told.” Nicolò’s smile widens at that. Yusuf knows he can’t resist a good bet.

    “What would be the prize for winning?” Nicolò asks, lifting one brow at Yusuf who grins at him, the kind of grin that makes his eyes crinkle at the corners. Nicolò loves him desperately.

    “Suppose a kiss will do?” Yusuf asks. Nicolò pretends to think about it.

    “I suppose so… though it will have to be a good one.”

    ---

    One night, a few months after they first become lovers, Yusuf and Nicolò make a game out of which one of them can tell a funnier story about a past flame. However, the mood of their evening changes as Nicolò slowly notices that the story Yusuf starts telling is much darker than he seems to realize himself.

    Summary

    "Can you teach me?"
    "Hm?"
    "The things you say, when we make love."

     

    Or, honing your dirty talk skills across the centuries because sometimes words of affirmation are also acts of service: the Nicolò di Genova story.
