    Summary

    Nicolò di Genova was killed on one of the endless mornings of The Crusades, struck down by a scimitar. He woke again later that evening.

    Yusuf al-Kaysani bled out hours later from wounds left by a sword. He woke again that next morning.

    A person often meets his destiny on the road he chose to avoid it.

    Alternatively, Nicky and Joe's second meeting was over 900 years too late. And neither one knows the other is immortal, or that they've already met.

    Summary

    “She was his slave. He bought her and released her from the service,” Yusuf says. “I’m not sure how to feel about that.”

    “They seem very happy now,” Nicolo says. “Who are we to say what is or is not a good start?”

    Yusuf chuckles. “Good point.”

    “What would you do if you were him and I were her?”

    Yusuf turns to him, mouth agape.

    “Indulge me, ya shamsi ?” He smiles. “Spin me a story?”

    Wallahi, Nicolò doesn’t often call him such, but when he does, like the exceptional marksman he is, it’s always fatal for Yusuf.

    “What would a merchant of Maghreb do to this pale slave from Genoa, prisoner of war, an invader?”

    Yusuf clears his throat, slinging his arm around Nicolò and pressing him into his side, as if it can shield Nicolò from the yawning pit of guilt he sometimes likes to wallow in. It’s a futile effort, all he can do is wade in and hold Nicolò, keeping him afloat instead of drowning.

    “I would notice his strange eyes and his awfully big nose."

    “And then?”

    “Then I would haggle with the fiend who captured you. I’d swindle you off his chains.”

    Or in which the (soon-to-be) oldest men on earth ponder and celebrate.
