    Summary

    They have just made it through the syllabus and started on actual instruction when, with twenty-five minutes left, the fire alarm goes off. 

    “Probably a drill,” says Mercedes. 

    “Not on the first day,” Vidal counters. “Some clown pulled the alarm.” 

    “Or some clown set a fire,” Mercedes says, cheerfully. 

    Nile sighs before she can stop herself. “I wasn’t planning on dying today, and I’d rather not,” she mutters in English. 

    Isidra snorts, packing away her things. “You millennials and your gallows humor.” 

    Nile lets herself laugh at that, but not as long as she’d like to.

    Summary

    “I’m not sleeping there!”

    “Why?”

    “Because I don’t want to spend the next months getting my throat slit in the night!” he hisses.

    “Oh, don’t underestimate yourself,” says Yusuf, leaning back on the low cot on his elbows, quite enjoying himself. “I’m sure you’ll be slitting my throat as well.”

    [Yusuf dies, and dies, and dies, and lives, as well, for a thousand years. Nicolo's by his side for all of them, and it's not quite the love story of eternity, but it's theirs: and that's enough for them both.]
