    Summary

    With a watery smile, Joe told her about the crusades and their many happy years together. He spoke of his Nicky’s kindness, his spirit. As his voice trailed off, Andy stepped in to explain the ‘44 mission, the Alps, the train, the explosion, the twisted sword they found in the rubble. Booker sat quietly. They were leaving out a few parts, he knew. Joe wading through the snow and ash for days, losing thirteen fingers and succumbing to hypothermia five times before they could finally tear his tired body away from the wreckage. Joe’s despair, anger, and grief. The years Andy and Booker spent occasionally checking up on Joe as he made his pilgrimage: Jeaureslum, Genoa, Tunis, Hanoi, Paris, Cuba, San Francisco, Malta. They didn’t tell Nile that the longsword Joe carries on his hip was reforged by Italian blacksmiths in the ‘70s.

    The team believes they lost Nicky 70 years ago, but Nile’s dreams tell a different story.

    Summary

    The church bell rings out in three joyful tones. With a sharp inhale, Joe sends a prayer skywards on the tails of doves.

    Gunfire chases the echoes.

    Joe is vaguely aware that Andy is dragging him backwards, snarling at his ear. They're killing them...

    Summary

    Joe gives a slow exhale. “Sometimes,” He begins, and he speaks quietly, like it's a secret only for them, not to be shared with the stove or the sink or the kitchen cabinets. “It’s like I feel too much for my body to contain.”

    Nicky invites him with his eyes to continue. He has very inviting eyes.

    “For example, sometimes I’m so in love with you that I have to do something about it. I can’t just sit with it,” Joe admits.

    Nicky’s face cracks into a hesitant smile. “Yes, I understand that.”

    They stand in silence for a moment, Nicky watching the food, Joe watching Nicky.

    “I think I like that feeling,” Nicky says. “I like to be overwhelmed with you.”

    Summary

    It’s been only ten minutes when he hears the door open behind him. Too quick, surely, to condemn a man, though he suspects the votes are there. He hopes Nile will bend them toward mercy. He knows Andy will be the one to deliver the verdict when it comes.

    But it’s Nicky coming to his side now, resting his forearms on the railing and looking outward.
