    Summary


    “Yusuf, you’ve been poisoned. That’s what’s making you feel and act this way. If you don’t get it out of your system, you will die and keep dying.” Nicolò tried to explain to him, to make him see that there was no other way. His palms were sweating, and he thought he was able to hear the beating of his own heart.

    “Unless…” Yusuf spoke in a whisper, seemingly already knowing the answer.

    “Unless you lie with an omega.” Nicolò completed the sentence, feeling exposed all of a sudden. This was a unique and complicated situation for the both of them, given their history and current circumstance; it should’ve felt harder for Nicolò to make this choice, but it didn’t. He was willing to take the pain, anger, and danger as long as he could help Yusuf. As long as he could feel needed by him. Wanted, even.

    Yusuf and Nicolò are brought together by unusual circumstances.

    Summary

    Nicky was glaring at Joe. “The man who I met was an idiot.” Nicky said, brandishing his lime-green silicone spatula like a dagger. “Who may have coincidentally held similar qualities to the fictional “Robin Hood”. This does not make him some legendary thief.”

    Joe wore a smile that was starting to become familiar to Nile, one corner of his mouth lifted as high as it would go, his eyes crinkled in mirth. Feisty would perhaps be a good word to describe it.

    “They didn’t get along.” Joe added, eyes twinkling.

    Summary

    The immortals dream of each other when the universe has decreed that they are not close enough to one another.

    Summary

    “I do not mean to pry, but-” Yusuf scratches his beard, trying to find the right words. “Forgive me for being blunt, but is there a chance you are entering your heat?”

    Yusuf has expected Nicolò to scold him, for he knows that is too intimate a question. Definitely not one a former enemy turned travelling companion should even consider voicing aloud. He has truly been prepared for the omega to draw his sword and defend his honour. Yusuf has not expected Nicolò to shake his head and to look up with sympathy on his face.

    “I have not had a single heat since I almost starved outside of Antioch’s walls. My body seems to have thought then it was more important to keep me alive than to make me fit for breeding.” Nicolò’s voice is quiet, but Yusuf cannot help feeling his own face going hot at those words. “But you, my alpha friend, I am afraid you are going into a rut... and it is going to happen soon.”

    In a world where alphas and omegas are seen as pariahs by the rest of society, Yusuf finds an unlikely ally in the person who has killed him at Jerusalem.

    A prequel of Wistful is the rain.

    Summary

    Yusuf’s eyes are like the night sky, deep and dark and beautiful, and Nicolò can feel them resting on him, somehow, even when his own eyes are averted. But Yusuf is not playing games. He doesn’t hide when Nicolò catches him, but lets his gaze linger as if to say, “Yes. I’m looking at you.”

    Summary

    La cota de malla le asfixiaba. Le llegaba el olor de las capas de sudor seco y húmedo impregnando la piel del otro guerrero, entreveradas con el aroma oxidado de la sangre propia y ajena. Su enemigo debía de estar oliéndole igual. Sintió un fuerte tirón entre las piernas, que le hizo gruñir entre dientes. 

    Así que Nicolò di Genova tomó una decisión. 

    Si Dios había decidido darle la espalda, él iba a obligarle a reconsiderar Su sentencia.

    Le iba a obligar a voltearse. 

    Y mirar.

    Summary

    "Yusuf slowly opens his eyes and he's almost compelled to close them again because the weight of Nicolò's gaze is just too much. There's love and trust and hope but underneath it all there's a hunger that makes his skin burn and his heart jump violently in his chest. And then there are the words. That Nicolò kissed him first is not completely unexpected — he is a man of action who never falters once his mind is made up. But the words are an immensely pleasant surprise and the ease with which they flow from his lips is utterly intoxicating. Yusuf finds that his own usual eloquence has completely vanished."

    ---

    OR: taking the step from travel companions and friends to lovers comes with a pleasant surprise for Yusuf, in the form of a very bold and effusive Nicolò.

    Summary

    “Back again?” Yusuf asked. “You know, I never had a lover court me so intensely.”

    di Genova scowled. “You are my enemy, I will fight you until I kill you.” And then, always in Latin: “God wills it.”

    “Ah, what a pity,” Yusuf lamented in that tone he had heard many a scorned woman employ to a faithless husband. “God must forgive me: I am too tired to fight you tonight.”

    Summary

    They had left the Gates of Jerusalem together, hearts heavy with grief and anger both. He had hated Nicolò then; hated him and everything he stood for. That hatred had not lasted, if it had ever been real in the first place.

    He had assumed that they would part ways, that they would go back to their own people and families, and that they would never see one another again. Yusuf would be glad never to see him again, the Christian man with his too-bright eyes and a smile that lit Yusuf's soul on fire for reasons he could not comprehend.

    Or, so he had told himself. 

    ~~~

    Approximately ten months after leaving Jerusalem, Yusuf realises that he loves Nicolò. He knows the other man will never love him back, but that’s alright: he’s more than happy to spend the rest of his life in his presence, seeing him smile and hearing him laugh. He doesn’t need anything else.

    Summary

    Ever since their relationship had become something more, Yusuf had discovered how sweet and devoted Nicolò could be. Yusuf had seen that behavior directed at strangers numerous times before, and even a few times at himself, but feeling the sole, unwavering focus of Nicky’s care was unlike anything Joe had ever experienced.

    Nicolò showed his love through small actions that meant the world to Yusuf: Cooking his favorite meal, sewing his torn clothes, untangling his curls, gifting him with new inks and pencils, or giving Yusuf’s back and feet massages. But Yusuf had never been graced with the image that presented itself today.

    Or, Nicolò surprises Yusuf on his birthday.

    Summary

    Y Nicolò quiso gritarle. Gritarle que le tratara así también a él, como a un animal, como a un ser irracional que no atiende más que al mandato de su voz y a lo que sus manos decidan, bien una caricia, o bien un azote, ("¡Lo que sea, pero tócame!").

    —Shhh... calma—Yusuf no se lo decía ahora al animal, se lo decía a sí mismo.

    "¿Por qué eres tan esquivo? ¿Por qué me huyes, por qué no me dejas alcanzarte? ¿Por qué no me dejas... tocarte?”

    Summary


    There wasn’t a name for what they were. They weren’t enemies. Not anymore. They definitely weren’t friends. At least, not yet. They didn’t ask each other questions about their personal lives. ‘What is your mother’s name? Do you have any siblings?’ Yusuf wouldn’t mind sharing that. Or asking Nicolò. But he already offered his hand in truce to him, and that was all it mattered in the end. They were partners now, but there was no need for them to be friends.

     

    A friend usually didn’t stick his cock inside his friend’s mouth.

     

    But then, there was nothing usual about Yusuf and Nicolò.

    Or, a look at Yusuf and Nicolò's relationship in the early days.
