    Summary

    It took thirteen years for their hurt and anger to diminish enough for them to listen to Nile. And another two until they finally decided that they missed Booker more than they were angry with him.

    “I forget sometimes,” Booker says after a while, “that I’m real. And so, I just-” he trails off for a second, “I just needed to feel something.”

    “Does it happen often?” Booker hums an affirmative, “How long?”

    “Since before my first death.” he sounds sad now.

    “The others were surprised, I take it they didn’t know?”

    “Just under two-hundred years together and they don’t even know the half of it.”

    Summary

    There was the sound of a door opening and Andy heard several gasps echo in the room. She pulled away from the embrace she had longed for, for so long, and took a step towards the door and felt her heart drop. Right there, on the ground, was Booker. His hair was long and his clothes stained in blood and dirt but what stood out the most was the metal collar around his neck which had him chained to the wall.

    “Please.” his voice was raspy, as if he’d been screaming, or not have spoken at all for too long.

    Summary

    “Are you in danger?” again, nothing but panting breaths are heard in response, “Booker? Are you hurt?”

    “No. I’m fine.” Booker manages eventually, “Just-” he curses again, “Nightmare. You were hurt. I needed-” he trails off.

    “Needed to make sure we were okay.” Nicky concludes, some of the heat in his veins cooling down slightly, “We’re okay.” he assures softly but it doesn’t seem to calm Booker down any.

    Summary

    “I’m sorry for being this way.” Booker mumbles, he’s still curled up under the covers, back turned to him but Joe can imagine the guilty look on his face.

    “You don’t need to apologise.” Joe balls his hands into fist to resist the urge to reach out and rub his back, “Can you just talk to me?”

    “What do you want me to say?” he sounds so defeated.

    “Why?” Joe whispers, throat feeling tight all of the sudden, “Why do you not want us to touch you?”

    "I’m in love, Andy!” Joe said wistfully flinging himself on his sister’s bed.

    “Took you long enough. It’s been a full two days since school started and you’re only just now in love? I think that’s a new record,” Andy said sarcastically before dodging a pillow hurled at her head. “Who is it this time?”

    “His name is Nicolo,” Joe sighed dreamily. “He’s new. He’s Italian.”

    Summary

    “I know. I wish I could tell you it will get better, but it probably won’t. But going back to my family is my biggest regret, and if I could go back and leave with the others after my first death, I would. The years of extra time I got were not worth the centuries I have had where the first thought I have when I think of any of them is their hatred of me. My youngest son died in the hospital, screaming at me, calling me selfish for keeping my gift to myself. My last interaction with my blood family was one of hatred and sorrow.”

    At this point, Booker was trying to suppress tears himself. In the past two hundred years, he had managed to become numb to the pain of losing his family. While it still hurt, he could fight through it. However, with the recent loss of his second family, them leaving him alone. Them being angry at him because he had wanted to get rid of this curse and they had accidentally become collateral.

    Summary

    “Wh-what are you doing here?” he stumbles over the question and curses himself for being impolite, he should be asking them how they are and if something’s gone wrong.

    “Nile here,” Nicky gestures to her with a roll of his eyes, “wouldn’t stop pestering us about how the punishment was too harsh.”

    “Oh.” he says dumbly, shifting uncomfortably on the spot, not quite sure what to make of the answer.

    “I gave them an ultimatum.” Nile says proudly, “Either I leave and come join you in exile or they let you come back with us.”

    “We choose the latter.” Andy says after a beat of silence and Booker’s knees nearly give out from under him in relief.

    Summary

    - It fucking burns, hearing that they've so easily accepted Copley into the fold, when Booker's sentence is exile, is missing out on whatever years Andy has left. But then again, Copley hadn't necessarily betrayed them, just provided Booker the means to do so. -

    Booker drinks, gets a job, sort of just...ends up with a boyfriend, and finds his family again.
