    Summary

    They’ve had this conversation before. The words are always different, but the message is the same.

    And that should be the end of it. Izzy is supposed to turn around. Izzy is supposed to slam the door behind him as he leaves the cabin. Izzy is supposed to leave him alone until the next time they have this conversation.

    But Izzy doesn’t.

    ---

    They’re on the edge of a storm that’s been brewing. It’s going to get worse.

    It always gets worse.

    Someone once said it has to get worse before it can get better. Edward doesn’t know if that’s true, but he knows it’s at least definitely going to get worse.

    Izzy knocks on the door, Edward ignores it, and Izzy opens it anyway.

    Summary

    "All right, then, Edward." Izzy turns to face him, crosses his arms. "When we get back to the ship, you're going to tell everyone that I'm going ashore at the next port. You have to let me go, or I can't go at all. Can you do that?"

    "Izzy." His voice sounds strange to his own ears; alien. "Iz, you can't – don't say that."

    A sigh. "Yeah, that's what I thought."

    "You'd come back. Right? You would. You did before. With Stede. You'd have to come back."

    "Edward–"

    "Iz, you know I- I need…" but he trails off when he realises Izzy isn't looking at him.

    His eyes are unfocused, concentrating on something else. Izzy frowns, looks unsettled; lifts a hand to touch his face. It comes away wet, and that's when Edward sees the slow ooze of blood leaking from his nose.

    "Shit," Izzy remarks. And then his eyes roll back in his head, and he collapses.

     

    ***

    A curse replaces Izzy with a version of himself who's thirty years younger, far less crotchety, and with no memories of Edward at all. Izzy's been sort of a bastard lately, so Ed's grateful for the reprieve. Until he really, really isn't.
