    Summary

    “Can I help you find something?” Nicky hears, not bothering to look up.

    “I’d like to pick up something for my Nonna,” he replies.

    “You must be Nicolò! I recognize your voice.”

    Nicky looks up, and the most gorgeous man he has ever seen in person is smiling widely at him from behind the counter, causing deep dimples to show through the scruff of his tightly cropped beard. He has freckles dotting his sharp cheekbones and his nose, his eyes are the glossiest, shining brown, his hair is a riot of stunning dark, tight curls, and all Nicky can do is stare at him and think OH.

    **
    On the first day of his summer break, Nicky gets a dreaded phone call about his beloved Nonna: she’s taken a fall in her favorite bakery in Malta and broken her hip. Nicky takes a sabbatical from his job as a professor and heads to Valletta to help with her recovery. He goes to the bakery to thank the owner, Joe, for helping his Nonna and finds himself instantly drawn to the man. The feeling is mutual, but both of them agree that since Nicky will only be in town for six months, it would be best if they kept things casual. After all, neither of them wants to get their heart broken when Nicky goes back home to Genoa.

    Summary

    “Oh!” He turned to Stiles. “Is he your new bodyguard?”

    Derek saw Stiles stiffen at that, wondering why, but before Stiles could open his mouth to insist that, why yes, Derek was his bodyguard like the brat he was, Derek spoke first.

    “I’m Mieczyslaw Stilinski’s bodyguard.”

    The confused look that crossed Scott’s face now was kind of annoying. Scott looked at Stiles, then back at Derek, and then at Stiles again.

    “I see…?”

    Summary

    What if they were meant to find each other at the end as well as at the beginning?

    Also - Imagine the last scene of the last episode of the TV show "Six Fee Under" but make it The Old Guard.

    Snippet:
    Standing in the doorway… is Nicky. Tall and unbowed, wearing the same hoodie and combat boots from this morning, leaning against the doorway, the sword in Joe’s hand also at Nicky’s waist.
    Joe drops Nicky’s sword, and his own.
    Nicky stands straight, pulling his hood back, and closes the distance between them. Looking down at Joe and taking his face in both hands, Nicky kisses him as soundly as the very first time, so very long ago.
    “What took you so long?” Joe breaths, tears in his eyes.
    Nicky chuckles and tilts his head towards the control room that had been plan A before it all went to hell, “We could do some good.” he answers.
    Joe takes his hand and they run.
