    Summary

    When Nicolo was younger - much younger, or perhaps just less war-worn - he was often told he had a face of an angel. He wondered now, as he did many times before, if that trait was somehow instrumental to his destiny in priesthood, and thus to his becoming what he now was…

    If he had a face of an angel, then the eyes across from him had to be the eyes of some vengeful god. It had to mean something… He dreamt of those eyes ever since he arrived into this strange, ruthless land - the holiest land. Those eyes must’ve been a premonition, or perhaps a catalyst in their own right…

    Summary

    This particular trip had been a long time coming. Two years deep undercover infiltrating a drug ring had made it hard for Joe and Nicky to find time to be alone- just as them, not as the identities they had assumed. It hadn’t felt safe to even kiss most of the time they were together, let alone do anything else.

    -OR-

    The backstory of a particularly ill-fitting sweatshirt.

    Summary

    We plant trees.

    I do not know when it started, but we buy a fruit at the market, and I get a second one for you when you’ll be hungry. We buy it, and we find a place for it. We dig into the ground, lay it in its hold and then cover it with dirt again.

    We stay long enough to see it reach light, to see the first green leaf.

    ~

    Or: the tangerine

    Summary

    There’s another world war on, and Andromache says their skills are best distributed widely. The world is a safer place, she says, when the sun never sets on them, so they split up.

    Much like its predecessor, this world war won't be the war to end all wars, but Nicky thinks it's having a mighty good go at it anyways. The Western Front is just as despondent as it was twenty years ago, though, and being a medic is just as unforgiving. Nicky eats and sleeps and drinks himself blind with the rest of his company, and decides who gets to live and who can't be saved, and misses Joe with his entire body.

    And he's not one for love declarations, not the way Joe is. He tends to keep the things he says out loud simple and exact and consistent. He can't wax poetic to save his life, not that it would matter, but lately he's practically tearing at the seams with things he wants to tell Joe.

    Thank God for the postal service.

    For just a moment, Nicolò wished not for the first time that the poem was about him. And then he reminded himself, that they were friends. Just friends.

    Summary

    "He has been tending the seed of love in Yusuf’s heart for centuries, and the roots are thick knots, tangled in every branch of his bronchial tree. When it breaks, he can feel the splintering stems like a broken bone."

    Summary

    That Jesus Christ returned to His body no longer seemed, to Nicolò, miraculous. It seemed to Nicolò, who despised himself for the blasphemy and yet blasphemed regardless, intolerable cruelty torture a man to death and then refuse to let him die.

    What would you call such a thing? Nicolò called it Hell.

    Summary

    Yusuf sighs sleepily and tosses his head to the side, and Nicolò stills for a moment. He doesn’t want Yusuf to wake just yet. Outside their tent the wind howls and rain pelts into the thick canvas but inside they’re warm and dry. Yusuf’s skin glows in the blue rays from the full moon that filter in through the space between the flaps, and Nicolò just wants to look at him a while longer. To marvel at him, to treasure him, to send up a prayer of thanks for anyone who might still be listening to a sinner for bringing him to Yusuf’s light.

    Summary

    Nile notices that Joe isn't sleeping well without Nicky when they are on a separate mission. She buys Joe a body pillow to spoon instead, partially as a joke to cheer him up, but mostly in the hope that it might actually help him get some sleep.
