    Summary

    "How old is this place?" she asked, turning in a circle to see it in 360. Nicky put a hand on her shoulder to point her between the pews, towards the altar.

    "Not as old as you think," he said. "They’ve added a lot of things, over the years. Everything you see-" He gestured at the intricate carving on the walls, the side chapels. "All younger than me, you know."

    Summary

    Not long after London, Andy tells her that time stretches out for them, that she'll end up marking it differently.

    Nile doesn't really understand it, and lets it slide to the back of her thoughts as she begins to get used to her new life. She wakes up one day and Joe passes over an envelope to her from the sheath of junk mail scooped up in his hands, “From Copley.”

    The freelancer is true to his word and sends a copy of the letter delivered to her family reporting that Nile Freeman was killed in action. She carries it with her for a few weeks, tucked in her jacket pocket, until it feels a little lighter as they circle back around to Andy’s cave. She puts it in a plastic tupperware box and leaves it beside the Rodin statue and a trunk full of old swords.

    She dithers a few times later that night, and then buys herself a burner phone, walking back to the hotel slowly while counting off the time difference on her fingers.

    Summary

    “Nicky brought the mustache style to Italy, you know,” Joe offers out of nowhere. He can nearly hear Andy’s eye roll. “I believe it was sometime in the early 1400s - wasn’t it?”
    “Ah, yes,” Nicky says, with a sage nod. “You inspired me one morning, and I thought to shave off the bottom.”
    “It was the eve before the Battle of San Romano, I believe, and not a man could take his eyes off of you the next day.”
    “That explains why you died at least twice that day.”
    “I am forever fixated on you.”
    “You’re both kidding,” Nile says, “Right?”
    “You should probably just sleep,” Andy advises. “They do this a lot.”

    -----

    In which Nicky and Joe take liberties with recounting history, because it's fun.
