    Summary

    Sebastian really didn’t want to go out.

    That was true pretty much every night – he was pretty sure half the motivation between their Friday evenings at the Saloon was so Sam and Abby could make sure he left the house at least once that week. But today, he really, really didn’t want to go.

    He glanced down at the bong on the floor.

    On the other hand.

    The farmers had grown starleaf, and it would be good to not have to go all the way to Zuzu to find a dealer.

    Plus. He had promised. Sort of. Not that he’d been very responsible for what he said to farm-boy last time. His head had not really been on straight. No pun intended.

    He sighed, sitting up, wrapped up his bong in a plastic bag and tucked it into his backpack, hefting it over his shoulders.

    Half an hour. He’d go for half an hour.
    --
    Sebastian gets to know the new farmers in town, and discovers they're full of surprises. Featuring strained brother-sister bonds, the soul-destroying overwork culture of late capitalism, and Sebastian discovering a new crush.

    Summary

    Joe is one of those people, Nicky realizes, who seems to have unlocked the secret that beautiful people have: how to carry themselves, how to exude. Nicky doesn't dislike his own looks -- yes, during his teenage years he'd been self-conscious of his awkwardly big hands and his inescapable nose, especially whenever starting over in a new place -- but as he's grown into adulthood, it's all evened out into an appearance he's more or less satisfied with. But he's never mastered that next-level, head-turning attractiveness that Joe has.


    Or: Five times Nicky thinks Joe is one of the most beautiful men to walk the earth, and one time Joe looks objectively awful and truly wins Nicky's heart.

    Summary

    In the hours after the escape from Merrick, Nile adjusts to the reality of her new life.

    Andy twists in her seat to glare backward, but surprisingly she’s not looking at Nile; she’s looking at Nicky.

    “This is your fault,” she tells him.

    Nicky blinks placidly, dried blood still spattered on his face. “I have done nothing.”

    “You know what you did,” Andy says. “You’re contagious.” She points at Nile. “If you start saying everything happens for a reason, I'm not letting you speak to Nicky anymore. I’m not gonna have two of you giving me lectures about some higher calling.”

    Summary

    Nicolò di Genova was killed on one of the endless mornings of The Crusades, struck down by a scimitar. He woke again later that evening.

    Yusuf al-Kaysani bled out hours later from wounds left by a sword. He woke again that next morning.

    A person often meets his destiny on the road he chose to avoid it.

    Alternatively, Nicky and Joe's second meeting was over 900 years too late. And neither one knows the other is immortal, or that they've already met.
