    Summary

    They kill each other once. Again. The third time, Nicolo stands and watches Yusuf heal before he pulls him to his feet. “Come. I will be gentle this time.”

    Yusuf laughs at him. “You won’t have a choice.”

    Summary

    Now, contrary to popular opinion (Nile), Nicky is very aware that his default facial expression is very intense. He’s also aware (thank you again, Nile) that he has significant resting weird vibes. He knows all these things, and he tries his best to mitigate them when he can. When said beautiful man opens his front door though, Nicky loses his grip on his self-control completely.

    Summary

    Yusuf tried to look soulful and romantic, like he was afflicted by destiny. Nicolo was a much better liar than he was, but in a typical fashion, he was nowhere to be seen now that Yusuf actually needed him.

    “We have been lovers for many years,” Yusuf said, looking determinedly at Afan’s nose to keep himself from laughing. “We must face danger together.”

    Summary

    Nicky had not felt that particular flavor of guilt himself in many centuries, nor ever would again, but he recognized it like a blade to the heart. "Oh, Joe," he said softly. "They're all like us."

    Nicky, Joe, and a very crowded ferry on what should have been an unremarkable evening in April 1895.

    Summary

    Joe half-scoffs, half-laughs, gaze flitting towards a sparrow landing on a nearby telephone post. "I'll explain it to you later," though there won't be a later. Obviously. But it's something to say.

    "Have coffee. With me," Nicky adds, rather unnecessarily.

    Joe's brain hiccups. "What." Then, functional brain cells catching up, he clears his throat to say, "I could do with some coffee." Smooth.

    Or, Joe is ostensibly on holiday, dealing with burnout and avoiding his gallery agent. Not so much running away as trying to find himself. He finds Nicky instead.
