    Summary

    Joe didn’t think about the World Cup or Lord of the Rings as they pulled up the long gravel path to their destination. He didn’t even register his first sighting of the windswept cottage in Scarborough. He didn’t remember parking the car. He barely acknowledged anything outside of Nicky, opening the door, wrapping a warm, grounding hand around his and leading them up to the house. Joe was more tired than he had ever been, he was convinced of it. All 953 years, he’d never been this exhausted, this broken, this hurt.

    The weathered old door closed behind the lot of them, and Joe heard Andy’s long, tired sigh as she flicked on the light. Nile dragged her feet to the kitchen counter and leaned heavily against it, running her bloody hands down her face. Nicky had done his best to pick the glass out of her braids, but she still looked… well, she looked like she’d jumped out of a penthouse window.

    She was going to be good for the team. She wouldn’t be like…

    Booker hovered halfway between Andy and the door, as if he didn’t know if he was supposed to be there. Joe watched him, his brother, standing there with that haunted look in his eye, and it lanced through him like a blade.

    Summary

    The thing they don’t tell you about joining an army of immortal guns for hire is how many fucking languages they expect you to learn.

    ***

    Andy suggests starting with Italian, but there are some things Nile never wants to understand, and whatever Joe just said to make Nicky turn that shade of pink is absolutely one of them.
