    Summary

    Normally he would have slain such a worthy foe, but something had overtaken Nicolò as the man stared up at him. The man was beautiful, and Nicolò—he wanted.

    ———

    Yusuf glanced at the invader’s pale, cold face and his stormy sea-glass eyes. Perhaps he ought not have surrendered.

    Summary

    Based on this prompt over on The Old Guard Kink Meme: "Everyone is a little surprised when king Yusuf takes Nicolo, a seemingly unremarkable man of modest origins, as his concubine... Turns out Nicolo has a good head for military strategy/is actually the head of Yusuf’s spy network/etc. The boytoy lounging around in silks sipping expensive wine while the Royal Council debates important state matters is just that - an act. Only Yusuf’s innermost circle is aware that in private they never so much as touch. Nicolo takes his job very seriously and Yusuf respects him as the talented professional and valuable advisor he is. That they have a secret raging crush on each other is also something only Yusuf’s innermost circle is aware of, and they despair at it everyday."

    Summary

    “I only wish—I wish I’d met you before, somewhere else, any other way. I wish this was a real first date.”

    Joe can hear the longing—and the regret—in Nicky’s voice. “I know,” he says quietly. “But maybe we wouldn’t be together now, if we hadn’t met like we did.”

    Nicky smiles sadly. “You think it’s destiny?”

    Joe shrugs. “Kinda seems like it.”

    (Or: Five “firsts.” Next up: art show.)
