    Summary

    Nicolò di Genova was killed on one of the endless mornings of The Crusades, struck down by a scimitar. He woke again later that evening.

    Yusuf al-Kaysani bled out hours later from wounds left by a sword. He woke again that next morning.

    A person often meets his destiny on the road he chose to avoid it.

    Alternatively, Nicky and Joe's second meeting was over 900 years too late. And neither one knows the other is immortal, or that they've already met.

    Summary

    “I’m talking to the most handsome man in the room,” Joe says, voice like smooth whiskey. When Nicky checks behind him, Joe laughs. “Yes, you.”

    Nicky wonders briefly if Joe’s a police detective and Nicky’s been made. Maybe he should just walk right out the door and forget this job altogether.

    But.

    Joe is burning hot in that tuxedo, and Nicky likes to play with fire.

    “I’m Nicky.”

    Summary

    “So...do you have Aspergers or are you like, full blown autistic?” Nile asks a few months after she’d watched Nicky have a meltdown in the back of their escape van. Nicky shrugs. He doesn’t know what to call himself.

    “I don’t know if that’s what you’re supposed to say,” he admits.

    “I mean, you’re high-functioning either way.” He doesn’t feel high-functioning. Sometimes he feels like he’s just pretending endlessly. Like he’s muddling his way through a game of make believe where the game is to suppress everything about him that makes him weird to others.

    It’s only when he’s with Joe that he feels some of the weight come off his shoulders. Can feel like he can breathe again. Can just rest and let someone else pick up all the things that he can’t, as he tries to find a place called home.

    Summary

    Listen, Joe knows he’s a good looking man. So when he dials up the charm an extra notch and only gets a raised eyebrow out of Nicky, well… Joe doesn’t pout, per se. But it’s a close thing. 

    In Italian (flawless Roman accent, too), Nicky drawls, “Can I help you?” 

    Joe blinks. Blinks a few times, in fact. Then it clicks. Okay, so Nicky wants to play That Game, eh? 
    ---
    It's the spring of 1973. Rome, Italy. Joe has been flying solo for months when he finally reunites with Nicky. Or, someone he believes is Nicky...
