    Summary

    At the safe house in Goussainville, he could barely disguise his interest. There was Andy and Quỳnh, after all, and Joe and Nicky. Was she supposed to be his, just 200 years late?

    Then, it all went to hell. Nile hurled herself from a window. Booker offered her his hand. She accepted. Everything changed. Nobody realized.

    ---

    Booker and Nile are generally smart and usually rational immortal beings. They make decisions all the time. So why do Nile's visits always seem to bring warmth and sunshine to Paris? And why does this thing between them feel like destiny?

    Or, a Hades and Persephone fusion in which Booker and Nile find family, find each other, and find their fate.

    Summary

    Nile Freeman is never going to get used to dying. 
    The emptiness that it comes with, a sheer sense of nothing, of something missing. Like the numbness you feel in your ears when you’ve been surrounded by silence for too long. The vacuum that appears the second you put your head underwater.
    And it terrifies the shit out of her 
     

    Alternatively:
    Four times Nile says she's okay and the one time she really, really isn't.

    Summary

    “So, what has you awake this early in the morning?”

    Nicky gazes into his cup as if it holds the answer to her question. “I have a lot on my mind as well,” he admits.

    “Because of Booker?” Nile asks hesitantly, not sure if it’s okay to bring him up.

    “That too,” Nicky confirms. He sighs and shakes his head. “But it is not just his actions that are troubling me.”

    Nile takes a guess. “Andy?”

    Andy’s mortality changes everything for the team.

    Or: Five times Nile sees Nicky taking care of Andy after she becomes mortal, and one time she sees Andy returning the favor.

    Summary

    Nile thought abruptly back to Princess Jasmine from Disney’s Aladdin, and how she used to call her “the most beautifulest person ever”. She thought about her secret crush on Hermione from the Harry Potter series, her frighteningly intense feelings for Dizzy, and even about the random woman at the bar she’d seen, long ago now. She thought about how kissing boys had felt wrong, even when they had been wonderful people.

    She thought about how she didn’t want to pretend anymore. Not to herself, and not to her family.

    Quynh and Andy died over three hundred year's ago. Nicky died nine years ago, and Joe six.

    Nile leads a new group of immortals. She loves them as she loved the others, but that part of her that they left behind when they died would never heal correctly. At least Booker tries to help.

    But really, she just wants Joe to braid her hair again.

    Summary

    She’d thought she’d come to terms with everything she’d lost, but in that moment it hits her all over again: she can’t go home, can’t ever see her mother or her brother again. Not even once.

    And she misses them so much it hurts.

    Summary

    Nile finds a stray kitten who reminds them of another stray in need of love.

    “I just wanted to make sure that you were okay.” Nicky stood with his hands in his pockets. “Joe said that you might want this,” he held up a little pint of ice cream and a spoon.
    A figure darted to the other side of Nile’s room, and she could tell the exact moment when Nicky knew she was full of shit.

    Summary

    Nile closes the front door behind her softly as she steps out onto the porch, the wooden deck warm under her bare feet in the evening. She pushes herself up to sit on the porch wall, leaning back against one of the beams as she watches the file download on her phone screen. She has no idea what it could be. Copley just forwarded her a message straight from Booker that had just said that she may want privacy when she listens to it. 

    When the file finishes downloading, she taps her finger over the play button. Unable to help the slight feeling of uncertain nerves that flutter inside of her.

    Her earbuds crackle as somebody moves the microphone.

    “Nile,” Booker starts on the recording, his voice sounding rough and tired. “You told me before that all you wanted was to hear your mothers voice one last time. While you cannot see her again in person, I hope this brings some comfort.” 
    .
    .
    .
    Booker had been responsible for Nile's rough introduction to immortality, to make amends, the first action of his exile is to try and bring her some peace.

    Summary

    He wants to call her something softer- mon amour, or chérie, or even babe or bae or baby, whatever it is the Americans are calling each other this century, because those are less likely to make her erupt into laughter than his French. Which is absurd, because hello, it’s the language of love. Booker would melt into a puddle if she called him something sappy in his native language, not that he’s inclined to admit it. But she doesn’t like to be sweet talked, not when she’s upset, and she prefers Freeman to Nile when they’re in work mode, something left over from the marines. So Freeman it is.

    Or: Nile has a panic attack, and Booker loves her very much, even when she's being stubborn.

    Summary

    The thing is, other than the fact that there was a gun to Nicky’s head, the team were winning the fight. One quick shot and it would be over.

    So when the thug pressed his weapon to Nicky’s hair and threatened to kill him if they didn’t drop their weapons, Nile shrugged. She kept her gun high.

    And she said—“Well, go on then.”

    Summary

    "Inside their vehicle, the Guard settles into silence, and at first Nile is grateful for it. No one is trying to gauge how she feels when she is still in shock. No one is trying to debrief her when she can still hear the wind whistling in her ears, when she can still remember the way her skull crawled underneath her skin to piece itself back together."

    On the evening of Merrick's death, Nile must come to terms with her new reality, confront harsh truths, and make a decision about where she goes from here.

    Summary

    Excerpt:
    Today, Nile is feeling restless, she doesn’t feel like walking on the beach, or like watching TV. She tried to read one of the language books they bought, but she can’t concentrate. She sits on the front steps of the house, elbows on knees and sighs. She can see Andy swimming again, Joe has gone to the market, but she didn’t fancy joining either of them. Today the sun is too bright, the sea breeze is annoying.
