    Summary

    The possibility of not recruiting Neil at all is never discussed.
    It brings up a lot of questions, the protagonist thinks later that night, staring up at the ceiling. He will recruit Neil because he knows who Neil will become. It’s a stunted paradoxical little loop. How did it start?
    The protagonist knows how it will end.
    Unless…unless he walks away. Lying in the dark, wide awake, the protagonist is tempted.
    (Can we change things, if we do it differently?)
    But…
    “What’s happened, happened,” the protagonist reminds himself.
    Besides (selfish, selfish). He wants to see Neil again.

    Somewhere in between the end and the beginning, Neil and the protagonist manage to find a little time.

    Summary

    “I’m sure the pleasure is all mine,” Neil says, flashing an iteration of charming smile that he censors ever so slightly so he doesn’t look absolutely desperate.

    Christ, he thinks as he sits. He really hopes he isn’t going to look at his wrist later to find ‘New Boss’ emblazoned there. He’s no stranger to humiliation but he’s not going to last a week in any sort of task-force situation with ‘New Boss’ written on his arm. Even a week’s pushing it; if he saw the dude parachuting from a plane in front of him had this shit across his neck he’d balk from hysterics.

    Summary

    John took him to the gardens at sunrise. They bundled up in quilts and drank coffee and sat on the stone walls, and John said, “Next week, eight years ago, you save my life at the National Opera House in Ukraine.”
