    Summary

    “Why do you like me?” Nico asked suddenly, his voice low.

    Yusuf stared at him.

    One hundred years together—and Nicolò was asking why he liked him.

    “Definitely take your time answering,” Nico said dryly.

    Summary

    Nico wriggled out of his trousers and his underthings, enjoying himself when he saw Yusuf's gaze get warmer. All these years and he still loved the way Yusuf looked at his body, like a prize he was covetous of. Nico liked being coveted.

    "You're not undressed," he said, and Yusuf kicked off his final layers, exposing his whole body to the evening air. Outside, Nico could still hear the bustle of the street, mothers calling out for their children, old men arguing, someone laughing, but in their room, in their bed, it was just the two of them, as it always had been.

    Summary

    It’s raining, he realizes, drops spattering the windows and drumming on the roof. Nicky’s breathing is steady and calm, hands unhesitating as he seeks out the knots in Joe’s muscles and defrays them with perfectly applied pressure, using skill and knowledge gained over hundreds of years of doing this.

    Nicky has never seen the need to fill silence with words. It was something that took Joe a while to adjust to, Nicky’s way of communicating without speaking. The quirk of his lips, the twitch of an eyebrow, the smallest motion of his head, it’s all said far more for Nicky than words ever could.

    So it’s something of a surprise when he starts talking.

    Summary

    “He has a crush on him,” Joe says around a mouthful of carrots and points his fork at him for emphasis. To someone who once has had Joe’s scimitar rammed through his chest, it’s not exactly a terrifying gesture, but it still feels a tad more aggressive than Nicky thinks the situation warrants.
     

    (In which archaeologists make a discovery, Joe is upset, and Nicky trolls historians.)
