    Summary

    “They are quite the sight, aren’t they?” Adrienne says, sitting down next to him on the log by the fire, offering him the eau de vie once more.

    “What are you talking about?” he says, feeling caught out. The bottle is half-empty already, and he does his part by taking a long drink so he doesn’t have to look at her for a while.

    “Those two,” she says, pointing her chin at Nicolas and Joseph, who are huddled together with their backs against the wide trunk of an ancient olive tree. “You were staring.”

    ***

    (In which Booker is new to immortality, and trying to make sense of Nicky and Joe's love. Andy isn't exactly helping. Or maybe she is.)

    Summary

    The novelty has worn off, of course, but it’s not the novelty that keeps anybody coming back, anyway. Novelty never sustains anything.

    In which some people are still laying low in Athens, but now some of them are trying to flirt.
    (This is a loose sequel to "An eagle's old age, a sparrow's youth" but it's pretty self-explanatory.)

    Summary

    When Eric Bittle gets the invite to not only join a sledge hockey team, but to live with several of the members after he's diagnosed with MS, he's a little hesitant. He wants to keep as much of his life as he can--his job, his independence, and his hobbies. But figure skating is impossible now with his nerve damage, so this may be the only way he can stay on the ice. And it all seems pretty great. If only the hockey captain didn't hate his guts...

    Summary

    If it hadn’t been for the fact they had the same oncologist, Kira would think their new roommate was a vampire.
    And okay, sure, maybe being a cancer survivor didn’t automatically mean you couldn’t be a vampire too, but why wait until your tumor was gone to become immortal? Personally, Kira thought Gerry seemed like the kind of person who would be more concerned with keeping his long hair than being cancer-free.
    Basil thinks he's just mafia.
    Or: you either die a cursed book, or you live long enough to become someone's weird cryptid roommate
