    Summary

    Joe is so singularly bright, and Nicky’s only human, he can’t keep looking at the landscape when he has the sun in his eyes. Joe could probably explain it better, with the perfect imagery to evoke how it isn’t about anything else being less, but about his beloved being more. Nicky’s never been the poetic one. He just knows that when Joe touches him, Joe’s warmth, his glow, his boundless love, fill Nicky’s senses so completely that nothing else matters.

    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

    Joe remembered little about his childhood. It was a blur, a millennia away from where he was.

    But, even when he could no longer remember his father’s face, no longer remember his voice or his laugh, he remembered his hand, how it looked pointed at the night sky, tracing the constellations with patience.

    And Joe remembered his own voice, childlike in pitch and topic. “Tell me about the stars, Baba,” he begged, more than once.

    And his father would point that hand, calloused, but strong, at the sky and they would stare at it until his mother called them inside.

    Summary

    Just above his eyeline, in dark purple Sharpie, is an addition so recent the ink is still a little wet.

    For a good time, call Nicky. Ask him about eating sushi with a fork.
     
    Underneath it is a phone number.

    Joe isn’t sure how long he stands there, staring at the words, before he says, out loud, “Is... is that a euphemism?”
