    In death's other kingdom

    Summary

    "He stares at the words carved into its surface, DO NOT OPEN, and curls his fingernails into his palms. He can’t. It’s too dangerous. Not until he understands how to get Daisy out of there. To get himself out of there. He needs to know.

    Except...doesn’t he, already?"

    Summary

    Jon opens the box and sees what’s inside, beating a faltering rhythm. He Knows what it is, whose it is, and what it means. He takes in a sharp breath that hurts his chest. His hands are suddenly shaking, and he nearly drops the box.

    “Oh,” he says, his throat tight. “God, Martin.”

    Martin leaves a piece of himself behind. Jon isn't good at letting go.

    Summary

    “So,” she says. “Is there an incident you’d like to talk about?”

    The two of them look at each other expectantly, as if each is waiting for the other to start. After several long moments of silence, Jon raises his eyebrows meaningfully, and Martin sighs.

    “Fine,” he says.

    Summary

    It’s coming into night when Jon leaves, and the god gives him an oil lamp to light his way to the village. His fingers brush against Jon’s as he hands him the lamp, and there is a jolt of sharp sensation; a reminder that he is still talking to a god.

    “Walk safely,” says the god.

    “May I come back tomorrow?” Jon asks, and the god smiles, his eyes shining silver-gray.

    “I look forward to it.”
