    Summary

    When days are infinite, days blend.

    Andy wakes up with an ache that seems out of the ordinary, her neck a little more pained than it was yesterday. She’s grateful she’s an early riser, because if Nicky was awake, he’d chastise her for falling asleep in the chair and Nile would go on about the benefits of a good mattress, and Joe would agree with anything Nicky said simply because he could. Andy found herself looking to the left often out of muscle memory when she found Joe and Nicky too much to bear, but Booker wasn’t there.

    He wasn’t there.

    ***

    The aftermath of Booker’s betrayal weighs heavy on everyone’s hearts in ways that they didn’t expect. The group thought it would make them feel safer to have the final ruling, but all they do is feel the emptiness of the chair around the table. Except when Quyhn returns and it’s revealed that Dr. Kozak made it out of Merrick, Inc., they know there’s no time to dwell in their pain. Instead, the group looks forward to stay together, and perhaps find a piece that has been missing.

    Summary

    Joseph and Nicolo linger near the door a moment longer, Joseph leaning in to steal a kiss, quick and sweet and a promise of more when they can snatch some privacy. Then he draws back, taking Nico’s hand.

    “Come on,” he says, intertwining their fingers. “Come sit down and have something to eat.”

    Or: Five times the Old Guard fed each other.

    Summary

    Twenty-odd years later, Copley recruits his successor for his job.

    Jackson was on the wrong side of forty and considering having a midlife crisis. Just a little one. Mom had been gone for six months - passed quickly and quietly in her sleep, thank goodness - but Jackson was feeling unmoored. His job at the CIA was good, challenging and well-paid, but as his kids grew he found it more and more difficult to ignore the voice at the back of his head which wondered if the people he worked for were also good.

    Summary

    A dam bursts inside Nicky, and he is so swept away in the tide of his relief he admits everything. “I meant it,” he says. “Of course I meant it, I’ve fallen in love with you. Let me keep you. Let me stay with you. Marry me, Joe.”

    “I thought I would spend my nights in darkness,” Joe tells him, and Nicky knows this about him, too, that he will not give a straight answer when a poem would do. “I thought I’d live on a pale shadow of what you’ve made me feel. But you – your smile could light up the darkest night, Nicolò. Your heart is so sweet, my love, you’ve captured mine so easily. I’ll stay with you for as long as you’ll have me.”

    Nicky would blame the wine, he would blame the summer breeze, the beautiful view, temporary insanity, anything, but it would be a lie and he’s an honest man. If he’s drunk on anything, it’s Joe. If anything makes him shiver, it’s Joe. If there is any beautiful view, it’s Joe’s eyes, bright with tears and smiling at him. If he’s insane, it’s only love.

    OR: The one where Joe and Nicky get married after knowing each other for two weeks.
