    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.

    Summary

    The first time, they do not kiss.

    Yusuf does not know if a man like Nicolò even wants to be kissed. He understands the moonlight-pale stares from across the fire, understands the hesitant touch on the inside of his thigh that sparked this, but still, they do not kiss.

    It’s been six years since they’ve met, a year since they’ve last tried killing each other, and Yusuf refuses to wait any longer.

    Summary

    At times, it seemed like all they did was no more than a single raindrop of hope in an ocean of despair and chaos, but together all those raindrops had evidently helped.  Copley had captured it all, the last one hundred and fifty years of their lives condensed down into a few dozen photos and newspaper clippings.  It seemed so small, and yet, all encompassing at the same time.  

    Kind of like how a declaration of love in a van during an abduction had condensed down all nine hundred and twenty years of an epic romance into a few hundred words.  It seemed an impossible feat, but then, his Yusuf was just the kind of guy to pull it off.

    Or, the stories behind the speech in the van.

    Summary

    They sit for a moment in a silence that ticks on endlessly before Nicky loosens his grip on Joe’s hand, drags himself up so that he’s sitting against the headboard, and watches Joe do the same. His eyes ask a million questions that Nicky can’t answer. He collapses, like a puppet with its strings cut, onto Joe’s chest, feels silent sobs wrack his body as Joe’s arms wrap around his torso and hold him steady.

     

     

    Or,

    Nicky has to figure out how to deal with the aftermath of his torture.
