    Summary

    There’s a crimson thread tied around his ring finger.

    Nicky’s magic can’t do things like that. And it’s certainly magic, whatever else it is. As he hooks a finger round it, brings it up to his eyes, and straightens the length of it, a frisson of power, that power, snakes through him. The sensation is intimately warm once more, the heat cooling to a comforting constant warmth. As if stepping from a shadow to be drenched in sunlight.

    Summary

    “You left me to wake up all alone in our bed.” He said, his voice a velvet-soft rumble into the still morning air.

    “I was going to make you breakfast.” Nicky replied, a little breathless as he held up the meticulously trimmed basil cuttings in his hand, as if that could sway Yusuf’s mind.

    His hair fell into his eyes, and Nico pushed it back with his free hand, letting it fall around his ears and frame his face down to his cheekbones. It was long— he hadn’t had it cut since long before the Merrick job, and ever since he had simply not bothered with it.

    He looked like one of the angels of old poetry. He looked like the Renaissance muse he had once been— the reclined nude in that Florentine piazza, more pure than the marble under his feet, and more luxurious than the pillows under his head and body. He had gazed at him just as he was now, full of liquid heat and a gleam that told Yusuf with all but words how he wished to ravish him. He was unabashed under Yusuf’s brush, just miles of soft skin, and his long brown hair falling in his eyes.

    Summary

    “D’you remember the first time you taught me to do this?” He murmured into the quiet, lips turned up into a private smile.

    “Was it the inn in Bohemia?”

    He tutted playfully, giving a little tug on the ringlet in his hands. “So close, but not quite.”

    “Tell me the story, then.” He chuckled, hands under the water and gliding over Nicky’s thighs.

    Summary

    "Do you want to know?" he half-whispers.

    "Of course," Joe replies straight away, eyes soft. The lines around them are one of Nicky's favourite things in the world.

    Nicky tells Joe about one of his dreams.

    Summary

    Nicky is completely head over heels in love with Joe, but when he waits too long to tell him, Joe finds himself someone new and Nicky has to contend with the heartbreak of Joe moving on and with Booker, no less.

    (Or so he thinks, but maybe the evidence Nicky has isn’t pointing to the right conclusion)
