    Summary

    “Is that what I look like?” Tomas says softly. He reaches out and brushes the pages with his fingertips. They’re delicate, as all Bible pages are. Too delicate for the rough lines of charcoal drawings.

    Marcus doesn’t answer him. He stares down at the sketch under his hands, as though dissatisfied with what he sees.

    “You draw me more beautiful than I am,” says Tomas, stroking the back of Marcus’ neck with his thumb.

    Summary

    Nearly a year has gone by—Tomás on the road, Marcus keeping his lonely vigil by the sea. When Tomás and Mouse return to the Pacific Northwest, a message from Marcus serves to draw Tomás toward where his former mentor and master waits. When they are reunited at last, neither man can say with certainty that God did not bring them together in the darkness of that spring night, or that they were meant to part in the first place.

    Summary

    Because they don’t do this. Not any other time. Not before laying down in separate beds in grimy motel rooms each night, not over breakfast the next morning. Not after mass nor after last call. Not in the presence of others, not even alone.

    Not ever. Except for times like this.

    When they have both looked death in the face and bid it turn away. When they’ve been run through the wringer, put on display, exposed every raw nerve. When the ultimate expression of God’s divinity has flowed through them—when they’re still alight with it.
