    Summary

    Towards the bottom of the list, a short title stood out: “GOD.” Curious, Nile skimmed the description: By drawing on sources from antiquity to the present day, from philosophy to poetry, from mysticism to neuroscience, from Eastern philosophers to their Western counterparts, this seminar explores what we talk about when we talk about God. [Thursdays, 2-5pm, Prof. Y. al-Kaysani & Prof. N. di Genova. Max. enrollment: 10 students.]

    “I’m kind of intrigued by this one here that’s just called ‘God,’” she said tentatively.

    Professor Scythia’s eyebrows shot up. “Oh? Why that one?”

    -

    OR, college senior Nile takes a very unusual seminar, made even stranger by the fact that the two professors teaching it seem to utterly despise each other.

    Summary

    When he got up to the stand, Joe was almost shocked dumb. Working it was the most beautiful man he had ever seen. He was tall, and he also had one of those t-shirts that had the bakery logo on it, but it was fitted perfectly to show off his wide shoulders, and beautiful biceps.

    He had the same beautiful eyes as Bea, and his brown hair was on a little bit of the shaggier side, but not too much to be in his eyes. He had a face that was made like an old Roman sculpture. He gave Joe a small smile in greeting.

    “Hope those two didn’t give you too much trouble,” he said, a beautiful accent weaving his words.

    Joe shook the cobwebs out of his head and tried not to make a fool of himself. “No of course not. Though you got quite the little businesswoman in the making,” he said pointing to Bea. “She tried to upsell me on everything.”

    The man turned around to where he was referring to and huffed a laugh.

    Summary

    "Hey," Nile says, kicking Joe in the shins, "I have a question. A history question."

    Joe grins wide underneath his beard. "Shoot." He mimes finger guns at her.

    Nile tilts her head back and groans. There had been an embarrassing 0.02 of a second, very very early on, when she'd had this terrible secret crush on him that had lasted all of a week, before she'd realized that he was literally The Oldest Man in the World and that he acted accordingly.

    ---

    In which Nile has Big Feelings (some sad) about her first Christmas since becoming immortal, and everyone is a Little Shit (sometimes as a distraction, but also because that's how they...are).

    Summary

    "Inside their vehicle, the Guard settles into silence, and at first Nile is grateful for it. No one is trying to gauge how she feels when she is still in shock. No one is trying to debrief her when she can still hear the wind whistling in her ears, when she can still remember the way her skull crawled underneath her skin to piece itself back together."

    On the evening of Merrick's death, Nile must come to terms with her new reality, confront harsh truths, and make a decision about where she goes from here.
