    Summary

    Sarwa is ladling stew into bowls and she hands the first one to Yusuf, who passes it to Nicolo and takes a drink from the now filled flask. “Is he your lover?” she asks.

    Yusuf chokes on water and Nicolo pounds his back, eyebrows peaked with concern.

    “I—” Yusuf pauses, wiping his streaming eyes.

    Sarwa looks at him, nothing but mild curiosity on her face.

    Yusuf glances at Nicolo. The firelight paints his cheekbones flickering gold, his eyes hooded and sleepy in the dim light.

    “I don’t know what he is,” Yusuf finally admits, still looking at Nicolo.

    Nicolo’s mouth quirks and he takes another bite of soup.

    “He looks at you like you belong to him,” Sarwa says.

    Nicolo keeps eating, oblivious to what they’re saying.

    “I think he belongs to me too,” Yusuf whispers.

    Summary

    “What does God want from us?” Nicolo asks.

    Yusuf lays down beside him. They stare up at the clear night sky. “I layed siege to Antioch, once,” Yusuf says. “Now you do. The stars are the same. If God cared, he would change them.”

    “You think God does not care what we do?”

    “God created this world,” Yusuf says, gesturing up to the stars. “It is beautiful. I do not need more from him.”
