    Summary

    “D’you remember the first time you taught me to do this?” He murmured into the quiet, lips turned up into a private smile.

    “Was it the inn in Bohemia?”

    He tutted playfully, giving a little tug on the ringlet in his hands. “So close, but not quite.”

    “Tell me the story, then.” He chuckled, hands under the water and gliding over Nicky’s thighs.

    Summary

    He sank his fingers into Joe’s curls and felt him release all his body’s tension into the sofa cushions beneath him. He sighed, nuzzling into Nicky’s touch, and he grinned. It was warm and bright— just for Joe, only ever for him— as he zeroed in on the strip of skin under Joe’s eyes and across the delicate bridge of his nose.

    Joe had freckles. Thousands of little pinpricks that dusted his cheeks like a galaxy when he got out in the sun— they framed his eyes and just a couple strayed up onto his forehead.

    They were one of Nicky’s favorite things.

    Summary

    Joe has been so thoroughly torn in two. Half of his heart wants to drag Nicky into his arms, kiss him until neither of them can breathe, whisper to him until they feel safe and whole again, find salvation in him like they have since long before Joe lost the ability to properly gauge the passing of time. His other half can’t bear to even look at Nicky for too long. He can’t see Nicky’s eyes, normally wide and beautiful and the color of sea-glass, without recalling them screwed up in pain. He can’t see Nicky’s skin without remembering it sliced into, pieces extracted, the stain of blood that lingered. He can’t see Nicky’s hair without remembering it caked in blood, too.
    //
    Nicky and Joe return to Malta after the events of the movie while Nile and Andy head for a safehouse in South America, because they're both a lot more wounded by it all than they'd like to admit, and are desperate to find each other again.
