    Summary

    A dam bursts inside Nicky, and he is so swept away in the tide of his relief he admits everything. “I meant it,” he says. “Of course I meant it, I’ve fallen in love with you. Let me keep you. Let me stay with you. Marry me, Joe.”

    “I thought I would spend my nights in darkness,” Joe tells him, and Nicky knows this about him, too, that he will not give a straight answer when a poem would do. “I thought I’d live on a pale shadow of what you’ve made me feel. But you – your smile could light up the darkest night, Nicolò. Your heart is so sweet, my love, you’ve captured mine so easily. I’ll stay with you for as long as you’ll have me.”

    Nicky would blame the wine, he would blame the summer breeze, the beautiful view, temporary insanity, anything, but it would be a lie and he’s an honest man. If he’s drunk on anything, it’s Joe. If anything makes him shiver, it’s Joe. If there is any beautiful view, it’s Joe’s eyes, bright with tears and smiling at him. If he’s insane, it’s only love.

    OR: The one where Joe and Nicky get married after knowing each other for two weeks.

    Summary

    Joe is so singularly bright, and Nicky’s only human, he can’t keep looking at the landscape when he has the sun in his eyes. Joe could probably explain it better, with the perfect imagery to evoke how it isn’t about anything else being less, but about his beloved being more. Nicky’s never been the poetic one. He just knows that when Joe touches him, Joe’s warmth, his glow, his boundless love, fill Nicky’s senses so completely that nothing else matters.

    Summary

    Joe is having a very taxing day.

    In fairness, no one expects to begin the day by coming face-to-face with one’s lover’s estranged family, standing on the doorstep when one had been expecting the postman, or perhaps the drunk Frenchman from next door.
