    Summary

    If someone else were to enter their room and switch on the lamp they would be able to gather clues as to how he and Joe spend their nights. The hand-knotted afghan rug by the balcony door is askew, and a pair of empty whiskey tumblers sit on the coffee table glittering in the light. The bed is unmade, a discarded tie looped lazily around one of the slats in the headboard, and a chair is pulled out haphazardly from the heavy wooden desk in the corner. The desk itself is littered with drawing paper and charcoal pencils and crescent moon shapes scratches into its surface. The space smells like them, like Joe, like men and sex and sleepless nights. Nicky can almost feel the phantom sting of carpet burn on his knees.

    Summary

    They kill each other once. Again. The third time, Nicolo stands and watches Yusuf heal before he pulls him to his feet. “Come. I will be gentle this time.”

    Yusuf laughs at him. “You won’t have a choice.”
