    Summary

    "I'm watching a new broadcast," Simon said. "Why?"

    "Mr. Reynolds is a good driver. Fast. He'll be passing your house in approximately--" Pause. "--Four minutes."

    "Again, I care why?"

    "Because you want to be in Orlando by sunset, Dr. Tam, you really do. And your car now has two flat tires."

    Summary

    "I would never command you to do this," Raenef whispers.

    "It is your right to command me in all things." Eclipse doesn't open his eyes as he speaks.

    "Then I command you to tell me if I ever tell you to do something you don't want to do." He thinks that's the first real order he's ever given Eclipse, and it feels...not as wrong as he expected it to feel.

    Eclipse opens his eyes. "I will certainly do so, should that unlikely occasion ever arise, my lord."

    Summary

    "Hey. What time is it?"

    Tom glanced at his watch, a present from his father. "Not quite four. In the afternoon. Did I wake you up?"

    "It's okay. It had to happen sooner or later." The guy's voice was low and slow, dragging out the words, with a gravel undertone. "Hey... Aren't you that guy? Janie's guy?"

    "Yeah, that's me. Janie's guy."

    Summary

    Casey's done harder things than adjust to Chuck's sleep schedule, but not many. That assassination in Antigua, no problem. HALO jump into El Salvador, easy. Waking with a start at 3am when Chuck decides to play World of Dorkcraft for an hour makes him want to kill things. Makes him want to kill Morgan, specifically, because he can get away with that.

    Killing Chuck is not an option. He has that written on a post-it stuck to his bathroom mirror, so it must be true.

    Summary

    "Did you just call me and hang up?"

    There was a pause. "Maybe," Casey said.

    "Why?"

    "No reason."

    Chuck lay back down and looked up at the ceiling. There was a wad of glow-in-the-dark sticky stuff up there from that time a couple years ago when Morgan had tried to make him think aliens were invading his room. He listened to Casey breathe for a second.

    "Did you hear me having a nightmare?"

    Summary

    Why is it that wherever I go, whatever I do, I'm surrounded by these walking, talking corpses? So deadly boring it's a risk to life and limb even to let one of them buy me a drink, which means, worse news, I have to buy my own.

    Summary

    "What happened?" he asks, once he's lying down again.

    "I was hoping you could tell me."

    "No, I mean... Why aren't I dead?"

    "You almost were. Tell me who did this to you."

    The urgency in Anotsu's voice seems a good indication that he's not out of the woods yet.

    "You can't wait five minutes to find out who to kill once I buy the farm?"

    Summary

    There was something about him. Something in his face, or in his eyes. Something less than sane and more awake than anyone Magatsu had ever seen before.

    Summary

    Wild things are unpredictable. Hannibal had known that when he brought Randall Tier to Will’s house. He knew it now, scrambling through snow drifts that rose to his knees and engulfed his arms when he stumbled.

    Summary

    "Fine," he said. "Have it your way. You're the coward, and I'm the man of honor, defender of the weak and all that crap. Are we done with this? I'd like to get in out of the rain."

    "You don't need to think to tell the truth. You only need to think to make shit up."

    Summary

    Magatsu looks around, trying to keep an eye on everyone at once. Kuroi walks one pace behind and to the left of Anotsu, looking less like the proper bodyguard he's imitating than like a moving wall of freaky. Everyone knows what he's hiding under that cloak.

    Araya Kawakami travels with a pack full of his masks. Only about half of them are painted in blood, but frankly that's more than enough.

    The rest of the group is behind Magatsu, which is much worse.

    Summary

    Anotsu stands as Magatsu has placed him, facing the wall, hands clasped behind his back. His kimono lies in a crumpled circle at his feet. Magatsu runs the binding of it between his hands. Not silk, though Anotsu could certainly afford it. Plain cotton, as plain as Magatsu's own.

    Summary

    He doesn't talk to many people these days. Not many live people, anyway. Sometimes, he's come back to himself trying to talk to men with their throats cut, their blood bathing his hands as he shakes them, frustrated by their silence.

    Summary

    He smiled, and Magatsu smiled back, oh so sweet, the barest hint of shyness shining through.

    "You're... I don't believe you sometimes. You're as big a freak as the rest of them, you know."

    Only Magatsu could say that and have it come out as an endearment.

    Summary

    He should let Anotsu sleep. He's been through enough nights with him to know that his sleep is a precious thing. Anotsu wakes in the early morning, fired with ideas that won't let him rest.

    Summary

    The tree's branches, mostly bare now, arch over their heads and stand out sharply against the sky. Crisp, blue air, carrying the scent of autumn. Anotsu sits propped against the trunk. Magatsu lies next to him on the grass, damp from last night's rain.

    "If you're thinking about your grand plans right now," Magatsu tells him, "you really need to stop for once."

    "I never stop."

    Summary

    "Don't do it again," Manji said.

    Summary

    Magatsu shakes his head and lets out a breathless half-laugh. "Thought I was seeing your ghost there for a second."

    "Anotsu?" The other man turns toward him. "Anotsu Kagehisa?"

    His hand now lies casually across the hilt of his sword. Anotsu takes in the scars and the missing eye. He smiles.

    "The very same. And you, of course, are Manji. I've waited so long to meet you."
