    Summary

    There’s a guy with eyes like sea glass Joe see’s all the time. On the train, down the shops, sitting at a little table in Booker’s café. He must live nearby, otherwise, things are a hell of a lot creepier than he first imagined. Joe’s pretty sure lagoon eyes isn’t a stalker though, if only because when he sees him he doesn’t get the Creeps™. What Joe does get, which is ridiculous considering they’ve never even spoken, is a serious case of feelings. Of longing. Of, dare he say it, yearning?

    Because, and Joe says this with all the admiration ocean eyes’ beauty deserves. The man looks sad. Sad to the degree that Joe’s overreaching empathy (bleeding heart more like), makes him sad too. Because he has to know what, or who made this beautiful man with his eyes and his lips (plush) and his nose (the epitome of roman perfection) and his beauty mark (kissed into existence by Aphrodite herself), so sad.
    He needs to, he yearns to; he just doesn’t necessarily expect to so soon and in such a… face-first manner.

    Summary

    Nicky and Joe had always been inseparable, each one half of a whole. Some people liked to assume it was because Joe's an alpha and Nicky an omega, but they knew better. They were meant to be together, forever and always. Other's people's opinions didn't matter.

    Nile secretly thinks they're adorable. Not that she'd ever admit that.

    Summary

    “If you wish, you may accompany me to my village,” he says, the other man’s hands stilling their motion.

    “Do you care for my company?” the man asks hesitantly. “After every time I have killed you?”

    Yusuf shakes his head and a low chuckle escapes him. “No, but it seems that you are in a much sadder state than I am. My mother would think me cruel for abandoning you.”

    After a tentative truce, Yusuf and Nicolò go home.

    Summary

    Well. There was one other authority to which he could appeal. Yusuf returned to the inn once more. From the common room he climbed the stairs, then strode the length of the hallway and knocked at the last door.

    A young man in black livery answered. Yusuf mustered three hundred and fourteen years of solemn presence. “I would speak with the King’s Justice.”

    “Let him in,” said a low voice.

    The secretary did, with clear displeasure.

    As a rule, Yusuf did not wish to be known to the aristocracy. He spoke more to the lowborn, so he was unpracticed with titles. “Your Honor,” he tried. Neither the man nor his secretary showed offense, so he went on. “My name is Yusuf al-Kaysani, and I have just been to the lord’s prison, where an innocent woman sits in chains.”

    Summary

    Sebastien Le Livre in 17 when he meets Yusuf al-Kaysani. Meeting him is like meeting the rising sun, and for the first time in his short but miserable life, he smiles without bitterness. Joe gives him love, and kindness, and mischief, and a new name: Booker. They refuse to be separated. They plan to spend the rest of their lives together. They are happy. Their skins are bare. Neither of them have a Soulmark to bind them together, but they don't need one. Together, they are happy.

    And then Nicky di Genova moves in next door to Andy and Quynh, and Booker's world plunges back into darkness.

    Time and distance will heal his heart, or so he hopes. He will survive this. That's what he does: he survives. He just needs some time alone to relearn what it was like before the sun shone on him and him alone.

    So who the hell is sending him all these letters?

    Summary

    The first time, they do not kiss.

    Yusuf does not know if a man like Nicolò even wants to be kissed. He understands the moonlight-pale stares from across the fire, understands the hesitant touch on the inside of his thigh that sparked this, but still, they do not kiss.

    It’s been six years since they’ve met, a year since they’ve last tried killing each other, and Yusuf refuses to wait any longer.

    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.

    Summary

    "One day, they had chosen to converse only in Persian, and were walking along the coast in the late evening, enjoying the breeze and stars coming out. They had just come from sunset prayers, Nicolo waiting outside while Yusuf had been inside. After praying, Yusuf was always more contemplative and grounded, and they each happily kept to their own thoughts, content with being at each other's sides."

    Summary

    Nicky and Nile have some time to themselves while Joe and Andy are out on a mission; Nicky, always the quiet one, finds himself willingly telling his new family member the story of how he came to realize that he loved Joe, the man whom he had been taught to hate:

    Because it was conviction that brought him to the gates of Jerusalem, a thousand years ago. And it is that conviction which is shaken over and over again with the kindness, the strength, the absolute virtue of Yusuf Al-Kaysani. This unwavering love introduces a period of a thousand years where Niccolò (who becomes Nico who becomes Nicky) discovers time and again that most truth in this world deserves to be questioned.

    -Except of course the truth of how much Nicky loves Joe.

    Summary

    "It is a lot to understand," said the one called Nicky. "I think you should get some rest."

    Nile thought that was an understatement.
