    Summary

    Nile can't see it. She doesn't see the love her family has for her and she needs to be reminded.

    Excerpt:
    “What do you need, Nile?”  Nicky asks.  His voice is heavy and sincere.

    Nile is still for a moment as she looks back at Booker and then answers Nicky.

    “I just need one night Nicky, I just need one night.”  Nile’s eyes sting, and she turns her back to Booker as she lays out her needs to Nicky. How could she explain to someone who has loved her since he first dreamed of her that she was unhappy?  How could she tell him that as much as she loved him, she doesn’t think that he would understand the weight of loneliness that sits on her chest?

    Summary

    Nile watched this easy intimacy for a minute while an idle thought percolated from the back of her mind and slid past alcohol-loosened inhibitions to her mouth. “Did you guys…have you ever…You know. Done it?”
    Andy was laughing at her, but she thought it was a kind laughter. “Nile, you were a Marine. I’m sure you can do better than ‘done it’. You mean, have we fucked?”
    Nile thought for a second. “Yes. That.”

     

    On a cozy, drunk evening, Nile learns a bit about Andy, Joe and Nicky's history.

    Summary

    Small as it was, they had their own room in the London safe house, which was a good thing because Joe was prying open Nicky’s mouth with his fingers. Not with his tongue, much as Nicky would prefer it, but with three calloused fingers sneaking inside his lips as if Nicky wouldn’t wake up from the intrusion. He was on his back, Joe pressed closer to him than his own shadow. The slant of moonlight from the window illuminated Joe’s dark eyes as he bent over Nicky. Joe sucked in the corner of his mouth, a tell that he’d never shaken off all these long centuries.

    Summary

    “What were you thinking about?” Nicky asks as his hand drifts to cover the one of Joe’s resting on his hip and squeezing reassuringly.

     

    “Quynh.” Her name comes out roughly and Nicky squeezes his hand again. Nile’s dreams had reopened wounds that had never properly healed, probably never would. “And how Andy is stronger than any of us.”

     

    “We all looked for Quynh. We did our best.”

     

    “I would not have had the strength to stop searching,” Joe scrapes out. “To stop throwing myself into the deepest depths of the ocean to either find or join you.”
