    Summary

    “One hundred years, Book, except for one day each year.”

    He's too stunned to say anything at that, hollowed out by the new information, and instead just lets her pull him into a hug that creaks at his ribs. When her hand brushes the back of his head, he leans in closer, hoping to hold onto the moment and commit it to memory.

    There are small mercies in the world, and somehow he’s been given one.

    He watches them turn their backs, climb the stairs up, and go, while wondering about trees falling in forests. The sound of his own loneliness echoes on and on like frothy waves lapping on the shore until he leaves himself.

    A year passes uneventfully, and he barely notices the time go until a message comes through on a secure email account he’s kept active for the past five years and tells him, ‘Prague’.

    Summary

    “I’m not always sure I understand love lyrics,” Nicolò says, when Yusuf is done, and has drawn closer to the fire, and Nicolò. Yusuf looks up at the night sky, and he sees so many stars, like moth-holes in an old tunic held up to the light. And he sees clouds passing in front of the moon. And he thinks of birdsong.

    Summary

    "They don't want it to be real," Laurent says. He touches lightly, with his fingertips, where he's written LOVE WINS. "They want us to sell them a fantasy, and they want just enough reality that they can pretend it might happen to them, one day."
