    Summary

    “What does God want from us?” Nicolo asks.

    Yusuf lays down beside him. They stare up at the clear night sky. “I layed siege to Antioch, once,” Yusuf says. “Now you do. The stars are the same. If God cared, he would change them.”

    “You think God does not care what we do?”

    “God created this world,” Yusuf says, gesturing up to the stars. “It is beautiful. I do not need more from him.”

    Summary

    Maria is the one that puts his family back together, and at the end and beginning and in between everything he loves her most of all because she loved his children first.

    Not at first, no, of course not; at first she is a nuisance, an inconvenience. At first she is the only thing available, because his children have scared away everyone else. At first, she is temporary, a girl meant to be a nun, a far too outspoken person for his liking.

    But then, she brings back music to his life. And then; she leaves, and nothing is right anymore.

    (Or: Georg falls in love with Maria slowly and all at once-- it just takes a while, music and honesty.)

    Summary

    Maria stood still as she felt the sash give and slither across her waist as he pulled it slowly around. Daring a glance back she looked over her shoulder to find him regarding her with his poker face, but his eyes blazed. Georg dangled the sash in front of her by one finger before he ripped it into two pieces, "I'm going to blindfold you with it, so that you can concentrate on me only. Do you agree to be blindfolded?"
