    Summary

    Yusuf half expects the bite of steel for his efforts, or at least a jolt as the soldier pulls him back down into the dirt—instead, just a hand in his, warm and rough.

    “Yusuf,” he says, hand on his chest. “I am Yusuf Al-Kaysani.”

    Something sparks in the blue eyes across from him. “Nicolo di Genova.”

    Nicolo. Something familiar that has no reason to be.

    Or, in which Yusuf and Nicolo kill each other, learn each other, and long for each other, somewhat in that order.

    Summary

    Yusuf couldn’t help but snort, drawing Nicolò’s glare.

    “It’s not funny,” Nicolò said over the burst of Yusuf’s laughter. “I don't see why it’s only happening to me and not to you.”

    “God loves me more,” Yusuf said quickly, as he had many times before.

     

    In the early days of their friendship, Nicky and Joe stumbled across a family in need of their particular brand of help.

    Technically a prequel to Driving Lessons, but stands alone.

    Summary

    “Don’t worry, it’s fine.” Nile said, the stab of guilt at ruining the night coming a little harder. Joe had been so excited when he saw the bunk beds, grinning widely as Nicky said don’t let me fall off this time.

    Nicky nodded but made no motion to stand up, to return to his husband’s arms. Instead he said, “I’m awake now. Do you want to go for a drive?”

    “A drive?” She looked at her watch, it wasn’t anywhere close to morning. Although the idea of getting out of their windowless room is an attractive one, she can’t deny it, “Are you sure?”

     

    In which: Nile is having trouble sleeping, and Nicky likes to drive.

    Summary

    Joseph and Nicolo linger near the door a moment longer, Joseph leaning in to steal a kiss, quick and sweet and a promise of more when they can snatch some privacy. Then he draws back, taking Nico’s hand.

    “Come on,” he says, intertwining their fingers. “Come sit down and have something to eat.”

    Or: Five times the Old Guard fed each other.
