    Summary

    Axel was brought to the interrogation cell where the agents were waiting for him, asked to be let in and confirmed that he did, in fact, have authorisation to be here.

    To his surprise it was not two captured British agents who sat before him, but one American intelligence officer who Axel recognised as Grant Lederer III, the subject of many reports and complaints that were passed along to him by his best agent, and his best agent, Magnus Pym.

    Summary

    Pym never felt smaller than when he had an arm around Axel, knowing that it was the most he could do; he never felt more certain that he was doing something right than when Axel settled against him and relaxed, and when his touch came as gently as a hand reaching through water, compared to a death grip that could reduce a stone to sand.

    Summary

    Falling against Magnus came naturally, just as he supposed it felt natural for Magnus to wrap an arm around Axel’s waist and to press their bodies against each other, front-to-front. Again their eyes met. Magnus’ looked between Axel’s eyes and his lips. I could say anything, and Magnus would not be pulled from this moment. I could say something and make him smile, but he could not look at me like this if he were.

    Summary

    The scars that covered Axel's sides didn’t make his skin feel any stronger, although Pym felt they should. Scars were meant to be rough, like leather. Axel’s only felt fragile, like folded paper.
