    Summary

    Five minutes later, Nicky carries Joe piggyback, his own backpack on the front of his chest. Joe's faint protests are silent now, his head resting on Nicky's right shoulder and his curls brushing Nicky's cheek regularly in the rhythm of his steps.

     

    With the knowledge that they caused the death of innocents Booker struggles to see a purpose in their doing. Luckily he is not alone and his family helps carry the weight.

    Summary

    Whumptober Day 31:

    The action clear, they were leaving Nicolò to rot in the heat of the desert sun.

    “You cannot!” Yusuf shouted, voice desperate and raw. They couldn’t leave Nicolò, the poor man would be lost in the ever changing landscape of the desert. He tugged against the rough hemp rope bound tightly around his wrists, ignoring how it sloughed his skin with every vicious jerk. He ignored the bite of the sword against his throat and pleaded, “Even as a deadman you can still garner a ransom for him!”

    Summary

    ...while it had started with her personal mission to show how beautiful, lovable and kind his soul was, to Nicolò himself in the first place, it had evolved in such a deep brotherly bond that Quynh couldn’t imagine her immortal life without him. Without their jokes and quiet mischief that systematically drove the other two immortals insane. 

    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

    Joe shushes the child softly as he gently pries a hand from her mouth, and her spit mingles with dirt as it dribbles down her chin. He bounces her on his hip a few times and Andy takes a step closer.

    Nicky moves before she does, extending a helpful hand to the child in Joe’s arms. He tugs a package of gauze from one of the pockets in his jacket and opens it carefully, then proceeds to clean the child’s face with it, gentle strokes down the corners of her eyes and the side of her mouth. The child openly sobs now, and Joe nods to Nicky, motioning for them to get into the van. Nicky nods back and checks the perimeter once before turning to Andy to give her the signal that all the children are in the van and hopping in the back with Joe and the girl.

    Andy plants herself in front of the wheel and starts the engine before she hears Joe and Nicky’s signal knocks from the back.

    “Andy…” Nile starts. Andy looks ahead.

    “Andy, I need to ask you something.”

    --

    After a rescue mission harbouring unexpected children, Nile has questions for Andy about Joe and Nicky. Andy decides to tell her the whole truth.
