    Summary

    Nile watches as Joe gets to his feet and heads towards Nicky, calling out something to him in Italian. Nile is torn between learning Italian, so that she can know what they’re saying, and feeling like it’s an intrusion on something that she’s not meant to hear. "He's very protective of Nicky, isn't he?"

    "You're only noticing that now?" Andy asks wryly.

    “It all seems a little bit one-sided, that’s all,” Nile muses. “I've never seen Nicky be as...violently protective over Joe.” Andy just hums, and Nile glances over at her. “You think I’m wrong? I know I haven’t been around long, but I’ve seen Joe get killed in a bunch of messy ways and Nicky has never done…that.”

    Andy just hums again. “Look again,” she says when Nile throws her hands up in frustration. “Watch more closely. You’ll know when you see it.”

    Summary

    “They are quite the sight, aren’t they?” Adrienne says, sitting down next to him on the log by the fire, offering him the eau de vie once more.

    “What are you talking about?” he says, feeling caught out. The bottle is half-empty already, and he does his part by taking a long drink so he doesn’t have to look at her for a while.

    “Those two,” she says, pointing her chin at Nicolas and Joseph, who are huddled together with their backs against the wide trunk of an ancient olive tree. “You were staring.”

    Summary

    When Nile dreams, sometimes she’s in the dark with Quynh. And sometimes she’s in a white room, Joe’s name and Ave Marias falling off her lips.

    Or: the AU where Nicky was also captured at some point in history and then the team rescues him

    Summary

    “He has a crush on him,” Joe says around a mouthful of carrots and points his fork at him for emphasis. To someone who once has had Joe’s scimitar rammed through his chest, it’s not exactly a terrifying gesture, but it still feels a tad more aggressive than Nicky thinks the situation warrants.

    Summary

    Sarwa is ladling stew into bowls and she hands the first one to Yusuf, who passes it to Nicolo and takes a drink from the now filled flask. “Is he your lover?” she asks.

    Yusuf chokes on water and Nicolo pounds his back, eyebrows peaked with concern.

    “I—” Yusuf pauses, wiping his streaming eyes.

    Sarwa looks at him, nothing but mild curiosity on her face.

    Yusuf glances at Nicolo. The firelight paints his cheekbones flickering gold, his eyes hooded and sleepy in the dim light.

    “I don’t know what he is,” Yusuf finally admits, still looking at Nicolo.

    Nicolo’s mouth quirks and he takes another bite of soup.

    “He looks at you like you belong to him,” Sarwa says.

    Nicolo keeps eating, oblivious to what they’re saying.

    “I think he belongs to me too,” Yusuf whispers.
