    Summary

    Nicky and Joe get abducted by a drug lord and Nicky is used against Joe.

    -

    “You have been tortured every way the beasts of this world have devised,” he said in that old Italian dialect, the one Nicolo had spoken to him in a desert long ago—the one he had not understood at first but come to dream in for the rest of his life. “You are Nicolo di Genova and you have died every way a man can die. You will survive. You will always survive. And I will always love you.” His voice was steel, because it had to be. Because he would not break, not now, not ever when Nicky needed him.

    Summary

    It was a tragedy, the loss of his life’s work. He can still smell the burning of all the different canvases in his nostrils, the burn of their ash lingers inside of him in ways he fears will never leave him. It was awful, but that wasn’t the worst of it, not by a long shot.

    The worst part is that humanity just lost the last glimpses of what may have been God’s true face, and he is alone in his grief for him. Alone as he mourns a face he’s come to know better than his own.

    Summary

    It was the drowning dream again.

    At least, that’s what he would say.

    They didn’t need to know that sometimes instead of a coffin in the water, his dreams were of battlefields and dusty heat, where that bastard was there again.

    --
    Joe has nightmares he won't admit to.

    Summary

    But that leaves Joe, Joe who hasn’t spoken to him or looked directly at him the entire eight months he’s been there. Booker has no idea how he’ll survive another ninety-seven years alone, but he knows he can’t do it if he’s haunted by Joe’s silence.
