    Summary

    Yusuf snorts, as if to say it’s mutual. But the Italian struggles to sit upright, wincing and swearing, and – Yusuf cannot pretend he does not want to know, not when a creature will always seek out its like, its matched half as the Greek philosopher Plato wrote, and there is nobody else in the world, to the best of his knowledge, like the two of them. He says, “What’s your name?”

    There’s a very long pause. He can hear the other man deciding whether to lie. But there is no purpose to it, except for bitterness, and the answer is uttered cold and shortly. “Nicolò.”

    (Or: The inevitable backstory.)

    Summary

    Just another night in the forgotten Las Vegas suburbs from Boris' perspective. He's worried but he won't say it-- how can he? Grief is grief is grief; it's ordinary at best. Then again, Theo is anything but.

    [OR a black-out night Theo forgot to tell us about, but Boris remembered vividly]
