    Summary

    Yusuf lets out a stuttered breath and pulls back to meet his eyes. Nicolò’s eyes were dark in the candlelight. He always looks breathtaking from this angle, looking up at him while pressed into his chest, the cupid’s bow of his mouth exaggerated and lashes casting a shadow onto his cheeks. Yusuf has never been able to resist dipping down and worshipping those lips with his own, demanding more, initiating something that would keep them awake for a little longer.

    “Yusuf,” says Nicolò. “Yusuf, you don’t have to stop,” Nicolò says.

    Yusuf looks at him, tracing his eyebrow with his thumb, smoothing his frown. “I’m alright, my love,” he says, and means it.

    “My hands, my mouth, my ass–” Nicolò says, “– still work, you know.”

    ---

    In which, Yusuf and Nicolò are stuck aboard the Sempre Verde, a 16th century Portuguese ship marooned in a freezing terrain, during a mission to transport refugees fleeing the inquisition. With their provision rapidly depleting, they are faced with difficult decisions, as well as inner demons named grief and guilt.

    Summary

    Joe was beyond heartbroken with what Booker did to Nicky and to himself, with all of them in general.  He felt betrayal from the one person he considered to be his younger brother, someone he would watch football with and would chuckle with from a silly joke.  Now, it was all different and it felt like he was going through some kind of breakup from it.  There was one less soul in their make-shift family, and Joe could feel it all over.

     

    Blessings came in all shapes and sizes, Joe knew that all his Immortal life. But one year later, walking away from the trauma that happened in Merrick's Lab and dealing with Booker's betrayal, Joe needed a break and a change of scenery.

    Everything changed, however, after they go out on a recon mission that took a turn none of them expected.
