    Summary

    A dam bursts inside Nicky, and he is so swept away in the tide of his relief he admits everything. “I meant it,” he says. “Of course I meant it, I’ve fallen in love with you. Let me keep you. Let me stay with you. Marry me, Joe.”

    “I thought I would spend my nights in darkness,” Joe tells him, and Nicky knows this about him, too, that he will not give a straight answer when a poem would do. “I thought I’d live on a pale shadow of what you’ve made me feel. But you – your smile could light up the darkest night, Nicolò. Your heart is so sweet, my love, you’ve captured mine so easily. I’ll stay with you for as long as you’ll have me.”

    Nicky would blame the wine, he would blame the summer breeze, the beautiful view, temporary insanity, anything, but it would be a lie and he’s an honest man. If he’s drunk on anything, it’s Joe. If anything makes him shiver, it’s Joe. If there is any beautiful view, it’s Joe’s eyes, bright with tears and smiling at him. If he’s insane, it’s only love.

    OR: The one where Joe and Nicky get married after knowing each other for two weeks.

    Summary

    “It’s been eighteen months!” said Quỳnh. “First Joe's new boyfriend is a doctor and working shifts, then he doesn’t use social media, then he’s studying in Manchester, then he’s shy and doesn’t like photos – it’s getting transparent. I’m almost embarrassed for Joe.”

    Summary

    The moment he steps through the thick door separating the outside world from the interior of the club, he catches the scent.

    Something warm and sweet, the smallest hint of something woodsy buried underneath all of it.

    The tell-tale itch in his gums makes him grit his teeth, pushing down his instinct to let his fangs drop, to seek out whatever it is letting off that smell.

    Nicky is looking for a companion to bite, Joe just happens to be there, looking and smelling absolutely perfect
