    Summary

    Whumptober Day 27:

    “I understand your plight here, my Dear Heart.” Yusuf said, voice quiet and understanding. “But short of their God descending from the heavens to exclaim otherwise, all you are doing is buying time.”

    Nicolò snapped his head up, eyes alight with something fantastical, as he quickly made his way to Yusuf and kissed him before blurting out “You are a genius!”

    “Obviously…” Yusuf stated, but shuffled his feet and stared questioningly at Nicolò, “But remind me again of my genius for this particular moment.”

    Nicolò just grinned and gave Yusuf a wink.

    My collection of one shots for Whumptober 2020.

    Summary

    She wonders, as she watches Joe’s fingers intertwine with Nicky’s, whether she should warn Andy about what will shortly be happening in the house. In the end, she decides not to. It is sweet, really, she thinks, to be able to love someone so completely for that long. In her more sentimental moments, they are a bright spot of hope in a world that can be all too dark.

    Summary

    “Really?!” Joe exclaimed without letting his sister finish. “Like real sleep?” He confirmed with a hopeful whisper, all of a sudden genuinely careful with the volume of his voice. And all of a sudden Nile had the feeling that this conversation wouldn’t really go as she was expecting.

    “Yes,” Quynh nodded solemnly with a satisfied smirk. “His mouth is partly open and I think he even drooled a little.”

    Summary

    It's been three months since they've left Booker behind. The team is trying to go forward, but it's hard.

    And Nile can't keep her head down. She's done leaving everyone awkwardly managing the silences where there should be a tired snicker, she's done seeing their eyes burn up in anger before being bitten down by bitterness, at the thoughts that strayed towards death and pain. She's done with the untold past they had shared together, and that no one wanted to talk about, because one of their own had failed them.

    But she was the one picking up the pieces left.

    So she pulls herself up and she breaks the exile. Because it doesn't matter what they had said back then. What matters is what they need now. And unanswered questions are definitely not that.

    Summary

    ”Shit,” Andy hissed, taking a deep breath.

    They’d gone on a mission a week or so earlier, and unbeknownst to the others, Andy had gotten injured. She would have told them, but all of them, save Nile, tended to panic when she had anything more than a scrape or a bruise. A broken wrist? That wasn’t going to fly with any of them.

    Summary

    Because it’s only been nearly a year, and Nicky's yearned for the man for longer, way before they got together. And even with all the odds, with all the numbers combined, Nicky doesn’t believe that there’ll be enough time that can pass to heal the pain that’s clawing on his chest at that moment. That has been since Yusuf said it was over.

    Nile’s legs move from his lap, and suddenly there are arms around him, pulling him close and Nicky closes his eyes, pressing his face on Nile’s neck.

    “You’re allowed to hurt as long as you have to, Nicky,” Nile says to him, and it’s so, so kind. “You can tell me as much or as little as you can. I didn’t mean to push.”

    “I still love him,” he croaks out, like it needed to be heard, like his desperation is a call out for his heart. His heart that let him go, that told him that it’s over.

    ***

    or the one where Nicky is housemates with Nile after Yusuf breaks up with him. And when he finally opens up about it, Nicky realizes that his current predicament was brought on by misunderstandings and good intentions with ill results. But it’s too late. It’s been nearly a year; it doesn’t matter now.

    Right?

    Not if your housemate is Nile Freeman.

    Summary

    “Nicky came home with a coyote once,” Joe offered.

    “It looked like it needed help,” Nicky muttered. “And I’d never seen one before, how was I supposed to know?”

    “That doesn’t actually count,” Nile complained. “I said dog grooming.”

    …or, five times Nile tries to think of something none of the others have ever done, and one time they explain why she doesn’t have to.
