    Summary

    “So, what has you awake this early in the morning?”

    Nicky gazes into his cup as if it holds the answer to her question. “I have a lot on my mind as well,” he admits.

    “Because of Booker?” Nile asks hesitantly, not sure if it’s okay to bring him up.

    “That too,” Nicky confirms. He sighs and shakes his head. “But it is not just his actions that are troubling me.”

    Nile takes a guess. “Andy?”

    Andy’s mortality changes everything for the team.

    Or: Five times Nile sees Nicky taking care of Andy after she becomes mortal, and one time she sees Andy returning the favor.

    Keraunòs, from ancient Greek: thunderbolt.
    --
    Nile remembered Andy telling her, not long ago, but it felt like ages ago, that she was once worshipped as a God. Nile could see it.
    Maybe Joe’s poetic declarations were rubbing off on her.

    Summary

    "I came because I wanted to hear it from you."

    Booker's hand itches for the whiskey bottle he knows is on the floor beside him, "Why I did it?"

    "Yeah. No," she closes her eyes and takes a deep breath through her nose, "The whole thing. Start at the beginning."

    "The beginning?" Booker almost chokes, laughing bitterly, "You know I'm over 200 years old, right?"

    She shrugs, "Hey, I've got time."

    --

    Two weeks after his exile, Nile visits Booker.
