    Summary

    She says to Andromache, “I like the way they do eggs in this century.”

    “Quynh,” Andromache says again, like it’s the only word she knows.

    “Andromache.” Quynh reaches for Andromache’s glass and takes a gulp of orange juice. She makes a face. “I don’t like the way they do juice, though. All that added sugar.”

    Summary

    He wants Yusuf to hold his hand again. Grab his ankle. Flick his ear. Thrust his sword into his chest and breath into his mouth.

    Yet, they have the long ocean of eternity ahead of them. These whims are nothing but a swell under their ship: gone as soon as they come. Nicolo knows better than to jump overboard and drown alone trying to chase them.
