    Summary

    “So,” Nile begins, sitting in the beat up Hyundai with some meatballs in her lap, still dressed in her running gear. “Sexiled, huh?”

    Andy nods, chewing away at her own meatballs. She points at herself. “Professional third-wheel here.”

    Nile nods. “Well, they’re in love.” She shrugs, and Andy raises an eyebrow at her. “What? Love makes you do stupid stuff.”

    Nile experiences the whole world, learns some disgusting secrets, gains another set of parents—as well as a cranky vodka aunt—and learns what it means to be immortal.

    Summary

    Over the past few years, he’s started sleeping as little as he possibly can without dying — his under-eyes are permanently bruised and he spends daytimes hallucinating. It’s better than dwelling on what has come before: screams, limp bodies, spraying blood, blue eyes.

    Summary

    An inverse of the van scene: Nicky wakes first, finding Joe unconscious. He isn’t quite as eloquent as Joe (who is?), but he gets the point across nonetheless when his panic is mocked.

    Summary

    It is passion that is innate, instinctive, primal. It is passion which draws two beings together, and it is passion which first shouts before hate and love have gathered their whispers. Nicolo thinks their passion has been cut from the same cloth.

    Over the centuries, Nicky considers the limitations of language.
