    Summary

    “This isn’t what it looks like,” Nicky says.

    “Okay, sure,” Joe says, looking like he’s ready to bang his head against the wall. “Because it looks like you just kidnapped our neighbour’s babies, Nicolò.”

    Summary

    “Joe didn’t lie back in that lab,” Booker tells him gently. “I am selfish. I am a liar. But beyond everything else, Nicky, I’m a coward.”

    “Really,” says Nicky, looking unimpressed.

    [Booker tries to save his family from Quynh. He's rather good at it, if not a little dramatic about the entire process. In the meantime, he learns a little more about himself, his family, and the definitions of bravery, forgiveness and love.]

    Summary

    “What is it?” he asks, lowering the brush and turning in his chair so he’s sitting sideways on it and pays Nicky all his attention. Like a flower finding the sun to grow, or a planet finding another one in its gravitational orbit. Nicky doesn’t know too much about astronomy, not as much as he used to do anyway, but he thinks the metaphor works either way.

    “I think I am going to take some classes,” Nicky says.

    Summary

    Joe has been so thoroughly torn in two. Half of his heart wants to drag Nicky into his arms, kiss him until neither of them can breathe, whisper to him until they feel safe and whole again, find salvation in him like they have since long before Joe lost the ability to properly gauge the passing of time. His other half can’t bear to even look at Nicky for too long. He can’t see Nicky’s eyes, normally wide and beautiful and the color of sea-glass, without recalling them screwed up in pain. He can’t see Nicky’s skin without remembering it sliced into, pieces extracted, the stain of blood that lingered. He can’t see Nicky’s hair without remembering it caked in blood, too.
    //
    Nicky and Joe return to Malta after the events of the movie while Nile and Andy head for a safehouse in South America, because they're both a lot more wounded by it all than they'd like to admit, and are desperate to find each other again.
