    Summary

    The truce goes like this: Yusuf and Nicolò are to part ways and never see one another again to maintain the peace. Yusuf settles in a bookshop in Tunis while Nicolò makes his home in Genoa and there they remain.

    It’s a perfect plan -- right up until the centuries erode the hatred away and what’s left is a longing shared in an exchange of letters. When a new immortal is born and the truce is forced to an end when they come face to face for the first time in centuries, the question becomes:  

    What kind of life could they make for themselves?

    Summary

    “Do you prefer the company of men or women?” Nicoló asks.

    Yusuf continues coughing.

    “Sexually,” Nicoló clarifies.

    “I can’t say I have ever been asked so directly,” Yusuf huffs.

    Unrepentantly, Nicoló shrugs.

    “Men,” Yusuf mutters.

    Or: 4 times Nicky came on to Joe very badly and Joe still hit that, and one time it was the other way around.

    Summary

    "Joe doesn’t remember the fall.

    He remembers the moments leading up to it. His feet, solid on the stage, strong, striking the ground before leaping through the air. Gaze travelling the length of one arm raised in front of him, fingers outstretched into the dark. The bright light in his eyes, cutting shapes into his figure as it twisted to the music.

    He remembers the hours leading up to it. Folding himself over his body, holding his calves as he stretched, toes curling forward. The dressing room, lit up in a warm yellow glow. Nicky pressing him against the door of it, infuriating and snarky and kissing him so good that he forgot to breathe."

    Or, Joe is a ballet dancer who injures his ankle during a travelling tour. Nicky is there to help him, in more ways than one.

    Summary

    There's a man standing in front of his table, a sheepish cant to his shoulders. His lovely, blonde-brown hair looks in need of a haircut since it's growing out somewhat unevenly, presently just long enough to hang partially in his eyes. His eyes are the most intriguing shade between clear blue and crisp green. He has a beauty mark near his mouth, a definitely Roman-looking nose, and enough scruff on his chin that Joe's not sure if he's trying to grow out his beard or just hasn't bothered to shave.

    He's fucking gorgeous, is what Joe is trying to say.

     

     

    (The past year hasn't been kind to Joe or Nicky. But a chance meeting at a local market sets them both on a path they weren't expecting. A path filled with love, magic and maybe, just maybe, some peace.)
