    Summary

    Over the past few years, he’s started sleeping as little as he possibly can without dying — his under-eyes are permanently bruised and he spends daytimes hallucinating. It’s better than dwelling on what has come before: screams, limp bodies, spraying blood, blue eyes.

    Summary

    The novelty has worn off, of course, but it’s not the novelty that keeps anybody coming back, anyway. Novelty never sustains anything.

    In which some people are still laying low in Athens, but now some of them are trying to flirt.
    (This is a loose sequel to "An eagle's old age, a sparrow's youth" but it's pretty self-explanatory.)

    Summary

    “By the way,” Andy says suddenly. “Copley said he talked to you last week? What was that about? Anything important?”

    There’s no malice to it, she’s not trying to trip him up or anything  – isn’t even looking at him, too busy stabbing at her food. It’s Nicky’s own damn fault, really, because he’s not prepared at all; no excuse ready to cover up, no statement that might defuse the situation immediately, take the edge off, so to speak. 

    In which some people are having an argument. They're not used to it.
    (This is a loose sequel to "Everything in moderation (even moderation)" but it's pretty self-explanatory.)

    Summary

    Nicky reached up to stroke a thumb across Joe’s cheek, one handcuffed hand following the other. “Hello again,” he murmured, smiling softly. “I do hope there is a Plan B to this operation.”

    Joe returned his grin—Nicky could feel the crooked upturn of his lips against his fingers. “I think we are now somewhere in the vicinity of Plan G,” Joe replied, unconcerned.

    Sometimes, getting captured is actually part of the plan.
