    Summary

    "I'll kill you," he whispers, struggling half-heartedly in his hold. Their mouths keep coming together, his words uttered around their shared breaths. It makes him feel lost and disoriented, disassembled. It's strange how hazy and surreal everything leading up to this moment had felt, but Lalo kisses him now like he's the only real thing left, and the sensation of falling back into his body is dizzying. All of a sudden he can feel the warmth from the fire and the weave of the couch beneath his fingertips, the scratch of stubble. "I'll kill you."

    "You won't," Lalo says, lazy and slow and supremely confident, and Nacho hates the way he thinks, spoiled Salamanca brat, with no rancour, hates how he feels himself stir in his pants. Lalo smells of clean cotton and tastes of fresh tomatoes and top-shelf whiskey, smoky like the barrel of a gun in his mouth, and Nacho has missed him like a phantom limb.

    But this is, as with everything Salamanca, a power play.

    He pushes him away, and Lalo goes, just barely. It makes him feel bereft. "I should kill you for what you did to my father."

    Summary

    “Get Lalo to trust you, then,” Mike drawled in that infuriating monotone.

    “How the hell am I suppose to do that?”

    “You know what you have to do,” the old bastard said without pause.

    Nacho bristled immediately, “I’m not fucking him if that’s what you’re implying.”

    Summary

    Gale was not Max’s replacement.

    How could he be, when Max was irreplaceable? No, Gustavo merely needed someone who knew the science and had the moral flexibility to work with him. Not a partner. Not a friend. Not anything more.

    Still. Gustavo wasn’t blind to the similarities...

    While visiting Gale, Gustavo uncovers a secret.
