    Summary

    On the day it happens, Joe wakes the same as he’s done well over three hundred thirty thousand times before. Nose pressed to the soft, sleep-warm skin of Nicky’s nape, arm slung adoringly over his waist. It gives him the option of pressing the flat of his palm to a steady heartbeat or to intertwine their fingers and, oh, the sweet anguish of decision.

    Joe smiles, nuzzles Nicky’s neck, snuffling through his grown-out locks. Ducks his head to Nicky’s shoulder blade. He presses his lips chastely to his flesh, not so much a kiss as a smile pressed into his smooth skin.

    There is a bruise on Nicky’s shoulder.

    Summary

    “I think it would be better if we slept separately tonight,” Nicky says.

    The words are soft and quiet, as if Nicky almost doesn’t dare to speak them. He’s still standing in the hallway when Joe turns around to stare at him, worrying his lip. His eyes are fixed on the floor as if his mind is off somewhere far away, somewhere Joe can’t follow.

    After Merrick's lab, Nicky is not okay.
