    Summary

    Yusuf sighs. “Allah forgive me, but I do not want to kill you again,” he says to the Frank. “Please, no more death. It’s enough.” He slowly spreads his arms, palms up, hoping that his meaning will be clear.

    The Frank just gazes at him for a moment, his unsettling blue eyes sharp but the rest of his face lined with fatigue. At last he nods, says something in his own language and, carefully telegraphing his movements, lifts his sword from his lap and sets it down in the sand beside him. He holds out his palms, mirroring Yusuf. Thus begins their tentative truce.

    Or: another enemies-to-lovers backstory of dubious historical accuracy.

    Summary

    “Granger — “ he finally forced himself to say, trying to keep his voice level. “You don’t have to forgive me.”

    Her head jerked and she looked sharply at him. His stomach clenched, and it felt as though his chest was being crushed.

    He squared his shoulders, trying to appear indifferent.

    “I realise we have to work together as Head Boy and Girl,” he said, “but in private, when we’re off duty, there’s no need to continue acting like you’ve forgiven me. I’ll understand.”

    Summary

    “Will the Head Girl grace the pitch with her presence for today’s match?” The timbre of Malfoy’s cool lilting drawl slid down Hermione’s spine.

    She stared determinedly at the book on her lap. “As I have explained many times now, I despise Quidditch. Sitting in the rain, watching people zoom around on broomsticks, risking their lives for the sake of a game is not even remotely enjoyable.”

    There was a pause and she glanced up to be greeted by the sight of Malfoy, dressed in his Quidditch uniform, carefully tightening the laces on his dark leather shin-guards.

    Summary

    Just above his eyeline, in dark purple Sharpie, is an addition so recent the ink is still a little wet.

    For a good time, call Nicky. Ask him about eating sushi with a fork.
     
    Underneath it is a phone number.

    Joe isn’t sure how long he stands there, staring at the words, before he says, out loud, “Is... is that a euphemism?”
