    Summary

    Whumptober Day 22:
    "I thought you were stronger than this, my love.”

    At the hushed voice, Joe raised his head and opened his eyes, blinking a few times to try and relieve the dryness he felt. He keened when he saw Nicky kneeling before him, a frown marring his husband’s normally beatific face. Joe leaned forward as the words tumbled unbidden from him, no shame as he implored his love to aid him, “My moon, my stars, please-please, I beg of you, help me. I cannot do this, it hurts too much. Just a little, please, just to take the edge off, that is all I need.”

    My collection of one shots for Whumptober 2020.

    Summary

    The nightmare had been bad. It was Quynh again, and she was screaming and thrashing against high flames, her skin burning and her hair on fire. Then she was back again in the ocean, mutely screaming for help. Hearing her voice though, painfully raspy because of the flames and the smoke, had shaken Nile more than usual, normally used to Quynh’s silent fury underwater. 

    It’s Quynh who draws Nicolò out of his shell, and out of his guilt. And Yusuf can only be grateful.

    This is a story of love and family, and all the pain they went through.

    Summary

    It happened quickly. Too quickly. But it also happened so agonizingly slow. He saw him drop from the corner of his eye, heard the pained yelp that escaped his husband’s lips, and caught Nile’s quick movements to take down the men responsible for his soulmate’s wounds. He backed up, hands tightly gripping his firearms as he pulls the triggers while moving on his heels to shield his husband from any further harm as he recovers.

    Summary

    The pain is never easy to bear.
    And with that Joe isn't referring to the fist of the security guard's leader – may Keane rot in hell – , which is mercilessly rammed against his larynx.
    It's about the gun in Nicky's mouth as the shithead brutally drives the air out of his lover's lungs with one knee and shoots the back of his head through his gasping throat.

    Summary

    — Yusuf? What's happening? — Nicky blinked, eyes trying to remain shut, but his mind started to anticipate the answer and what if- what if Joe was about to tell him he was no longer healing? Well, trying to sleep was no longer an option.

    Summary

    Their bodies are riddled with bullets, stretched out prone on a floor that is glossy and slick with blood. Nicky can hear shells dropping onto the floor, overlaid by the sound of their attackers murmuring to one another. No doubt congratulating one another on a job well done. Nicky wasn’t particularly interested in what they were saying, he was too busy considering the fact that he could hear what they were saying. He should really be dead right now. Like, properly dead. Halfway to healing and regenerating, but still unable to hear and see type dead.

    or - nicky dies in south sudan, and wakes up a ghost.

    Summary

    Because it’s only been nearly a year, and Nicky's yearned for the man for longer, way before they got together. And even with all the odds, with all the numbers combined, Nicky doesn’t believe that there’ll be enough time that can pass to heal the pain that’s clawing on his chest at that moment. That has been since Yusuf said it was over.

    Nile’s legs move from his lap, and suddenly there are arms around him, pulling him close and Nicky closes his eyes, pressing his face on Nile’s neck.

    “You’re allowed to hurt as long as you have to, Nicky,” Nile says to him, and it’s so, so kind. “You can tell me as much or as little as you can. I didn’t mean to push.”

    “I still love him,” he croaks out, like it needed to be heard, like his desperation is a call out for his heart. His heart that let him go, that told him that it’s over.

    ***

    or the one where Nicky is housemates with Nile after Yusuf breaks up with him. And when he finally opens up about it, Nicky realizes that his current predicament was brought on by misunderstandings and good intentions with ill results. But it’s too late. It’s been nearly a year; it doesn’t matter now.

    Right?

    Not if your housemate is Nile Freeman.
