    Summary

    ”Did it bother you? What she did for a living?”

    There is probably not a correct answer to this question, but John feels it very keenly, that the other man is testing him. He forces himself to expel a breath and to relax his shoulders. “She was my wife and she gave up something for me. No, it doesn’t really bother me.”  

    “You’re soft and you have no spine,” Santino studies him, like one studies a very interesting specimen of insect. “Not really seeing the appeal.”

    Or: John Wick is (kind of) an average Joe who runs a secondhand bookshop in the middle of New York City. By the time Santino D’Antonio appears to call in the Marker owed to him by John’s wife, a retired assassin, Helen has died.

    However, a Marker is still a Marker, and Santino isn’t the most reasonable of men.

    Summary

    Percival, for his part, had been content to forget about the Barebones and their frightening, frustrating daughters and continue on with his life. After all, he wanted a career, he wanted a life outside the home. Certainly he didn’t want a woman at all, much less either one of the two Barebone girls. He was content with the loneliness, or at least that’s what he told himself. Neatly packing away his emotions, bottling them and storing him in a cellar in his chest. And if the bottles were a bit leaky then he just had to be careful not to light anything near them.

    So when, nearly two decades after Etta Barebone had run off with her No-Maj, Mary Lou Barebone knocked on the door of his apartment, a tall, hunched figure trying to blend in with her shadow standing behind her, Percival was apprehensive enough to know that nothing good would come of Mary Lou darkening his doorway.
