    Summary

    Professor Jones is definitely the hottest faculty member any of them have ever seen.
    He is, in a word, a snack.

    But the Italian who just interrupted his art history lecture just might give him a run for his money.

    Summary

    “Speaking of keeping up,” Andy muses. “We need to start training you.”

    Training, Nile discovers, involves what Andy calls ‘retrieval missions’ and what Nile calls ‘capture the flag’.

    Summary

    “What are you thinking?” Joe asked.

    He wrapped a hand around Joe’s wrist. “Do you remember the parable of Theseus’ ship?”

    “Is that the one about the planks?”

    “Yes. It’s been asked how many of those planks must be replaced until it is no longer the same ship. That is what I’m thinking.”

    Joe tightened his grip, as if he were trying to hold Nicky together with nothing but his hands and sheer stubbornness. “I see this has left you in a philosophical mood.”

    Summary

    And last but not least: Prof. al-Kaysani got married last week! And while he has explicitly asked for no fuss to be made, we have organised a small gift and a card that you are all welcome to sign. It will be on my desk until September 7th.

    Best,

    Dr. Quynh Pham
    Course Leader BA (Hons) Curating

    Nile’s eyes are stuck on the word ‘married’. Her mouth drops open, toast falling into her lap without her noticing.

    Married. 

    “The fuck?”
