    Summary

    After London—and Paris, and Istanbul, and Hanoi—the group finally catches some rest. Joe talks a lot. It hurts, but it's good, like drawing poison from a wound.

    Or: Joe talks about the movie's events with Booker, and then he talks about that talk with Nicky.

    Summary

    “Nicolo prays. He asks God, every day, five times a day, for answers. He begs God to show him the truth. In the rare times he’s on his lonesome, Nicolo extends his arms to Heaven and asks God to strike him down forever, if he should not love Yusuf. Every time he does, within two days, Nicolo dies, and Yusuf waits for him while he comes back. Yusuf’s eyes get wet, like they do every time he’s relieved Nicolo lives again, and his calloused hands take one of Nicolo’s, and all Nicolo can think about is how much he wants to kiss Yusuf. He’s never kissed anyone before.

    Nicolo can face Death fearlessly, and fight despite wounds that would kill a normal man, but when it comes to kissing the man he’s spent just over a decade loving wholeheartedly, he feels a coward.”

    Or, two men of God travel and fall in love every day for nine hundred years.

    Summary

    Everyone waits for the day when their goose will come. The arrival of your goose means it is time to meet your soulmate. Under normal circumstances, you follow your goose, and it leads you to your soulmate. Your soulmate goose sticks around long enough to make sure you two get the picture, and then its job is done.

    As Yusuf al-Kaysani died beneath the walls of al-Quds, he just assumed he would never meet his soulmate, or he never had one at all. And then, as he lay dying, Yusuf al-Kaysani hears an unexpected sound:

    Honk! Honk!

    Or, Enemies to Lovers slow run, wherein Nicolo and Yusuf are followed around for twenty years by a soulmate goose who isn't leaving until the two of them admit they're soulmates.

    Summary

    An involuntary shudder runs down Nicky’s spine. He’d been doing so well. So well. The problem, of course, is that Nicky, like all people, has weaknesses, and articulate confidence is one of them. Perhaps that accounts for what he says next.

    “Prove it.”
