    Summary

    “I think I remember how to play,” Laurent said, and his voice was uncharacteristically shy. Damen had never seen him open himself to anyone other than Damen, and he knew that part of it was that Laurent was trying to prove himself to the other soldiers. He could not exchange crude stories or engage in sexual jokes and soldierly camaraderie, but he could give them this.
    **
    In which Laurent joins the soldiers around the campfire in order to prove a point to Damen, and exact revenge on his lover for his absence.

    “You know the rules?” Damen asks, careful to keep a patronising tone from his voice, though Laurent still rolls his eyes.

    Summary

    “Men are born for games. Nothing else. Every child knows that play is nobler than work. He knows too that the worth or merit of a game is not inherent in the game itself but rather in the value of that which is put at hazard. Games of chance require a wager to have meaning at all. Games of sport involve the skill and strength of the opponents and the humiliation of defeat and the pride of victory are in themselves sufficient stake because they inhere in the worth of the principals and define them. But the trial of chance or trial of worth all games aspire to the condition of war for here that which is wagered swallows up game, player, all.”
    ― Cormac McCarthy, Blood Meridian, or the Evening Redness in the West
