    Summary

    Joe and Nicky have worked together for three years, but Joe’s crush can be reliably dated back about six months. (Of course he has a crush, and of course he can admit that to himself, he’s an adult. Doesn’t mean he’s going to admit it to Booker.) They’d known of each other, of course, but it’s a relatively large library and material services folks are notorious for rarely emerging from their back room, where they hoard fresh barcode stickers and the laminator.

    In which Joe is a youth services librarian, Nicky repairs books, and their coworkers have their suspicions.

    Summary

    He shoves his hands into the pockets of his coat as he makes his way towards the neighborhood where Joe and his research assistant will be living for the next four months, and steadfastly tries not to think about how the contact file on his phone that used to read "Dr. Yusuf Al-Kaysani (Jerusalem)" now simply reads "Joe". Or how there is now a photo attached to that contact file, which means whenever Joe calls him Nicolò’s phone screen lights up with a selfie of Joe in a backwards baseball cap on a sunny day somewhere in Bloomsbury.

     

    In which Nicky reaches an understanding with God and leaves the priesthood for love.

    Summary

    The single faceless, anonymous photograph on the profile that catches his eye is shot in elegant black-and-white, and there’s something about the crispness of the focus and the markedly off-center composition that says art, for once, rather than mugshot.

    The caption below is equally sparse: “5’6. Demanding.”

    Summary

    The worst part of being pregnant was not being able to drink. Despite Zhou Zishu’s strenuous protests that it was by now too late to matter, even his useless disciple had quickly been co-opted into the enemy camp. “I’m losing my sense of taste anyway, so what’s the problem?” Zishu complained as Wen Kexing confronted Zishu with a container of wine that Zishu had hidden for later use. It’d last been squirrelled away in his travelling clothes, which Zhang Chengling had taken away to wash and fold. Curse that unfilial disciple.

    “You think it’s the taste of alcohol that’s the issue?” Kexing stared at him, incredulous. “Surely you aren’t that ignorant. Or is this sort of miseducation common for people with no medical training?”

    Summary

    "I'm not going to die of spoiled blood," Zhou Zishu groans, "Good heavens, Lao Wen ah."

    "Indeed not! I won't let you," Wen Kexing agrees, and threads the needle. They fall silent as he stitches the wound closed. He can feel Zhou Zishu's eyes on his face, but he doesn't dare look up to meet his gaze; he doesn't want to prick him by accident. No, Zhou Zishu will not die of spoiled blood.
