    Summary

    “Wait, weren’t you a Crusader?” Nile asked. Nicky had just politely refused her offer to order him a bacon cheeseburger, or something, from McDonald’s for dinner, telling her that he kept kosher.

    “That was a long time ago,” he replied.

    “So you're Jewish?” Nile didn’t know that many Jews, though there were many in Chicago and its surrounding suburbs. It hadn’t come up in the few months she’d been with them and honestly she was shocked.

    “Yes, I converted during the Third Crusade, I believe it was. Joe?”

    OR: the what if at some point Nicky converted to Judaism fic literally no one in the world asked for. like seriously.

    Summary

    Squeezing the phone between his ear and one shoulder, he lifted the fussy baby from her bassinet up against his other. She let loose another little whine, this one certainly audible on the other end of the line.  

    “Booker,” said Nile slowly, “is that a cat in the background?”

    He froze. “A cat? Yes, of course. This little lady was hanging out by the trash bins for my flat, squawking up a storm and hungry as hell. No mama to be seen, so I’ve taken her in for a couple of days.” There. It wasn’t a total lie.

    Or, Booker, exiled, drunk and alone, takes in an abandoned baby. He doesn’t tell anybody. He definitely doesn’t fall a little bit in love.

    Summary

    It’s raining, he realizes, drops spattering the windows and drumming on the roof. Nicky’s breathing is steady and calm, hands unhesitating as he seeks out the knots in Joe’s muscles and defrays them with perfectly applied pressure, using skill and knowledge gained over hundreds of years of doing this.

    Nicky has never seen the need to fill silence with words. It was something that took Joe a while to adjust to, Nicky’s way of communicating without speaking. The quirk of his lips, the twitch of an eyebrow, the smallest motion of his head, it’s all said far more for Nicky than words ever could.

    So it’s something of a surprise when he starts talking.
