    Summary

    Sequel/Midquel of With This Wind Blowing, and This Tide.

    After the attack on safe-house Charlie, Joe and Nicky wake up alone: their whole family is gone, presumably captured by somebody who knows their secret, and there will be no dreams to guide them.
    It's a long way from Goussainville to Guildford, to London and, finally, to Malta.

    Summary

    “It’s this dress,” Yennefer admitted. “It fastens up the back with about a hundred miniature buttons. It’s, not strictly possible for one to remove it on one’s own.”

    Jaskier snorted. “Oh? Well, how would usually get it off?”

    “Usually I just,” she said, and motioned, trying to convey the general idea of I unfasten them all at once, with magic. “Whoosh.”

    His eyes widened as he grasped the problem. “Ahh, I see,” he said. “That does sound very awkward.”

    Temporarily bereft of her magic, Yennefer finds herself in a tricky position.

    Summary

    “And it didn’t bother you that the guard thought you were -- that we were -- ?” Nicolò asks, for what is definitely the fourth time, as they bed down, hopefully hidden from view by the reeds and trees of the Nile delta.

    Yusuf sighs, rolling onto his back. “Do I mind that he thought I would be foolish enough to abandon all reason and take up with one of the men who helped sack Al-Quds? Yes, a little. Not enough to stop from using it as a perfectly serviceable escape route.”

    “No,” Nicolò says, “I mean, that you would prefer the company of other men at all.”

    Yusuf blinks, bemused. He hadn’t even thought of that. “As a rule, I try not to be insulted by accusations that are true,” he says drily.

    OR: Five times they were faking it and two times it was real.

    Summary

    Morse rarely mentions him. When he does, it’s usually at night in a quiet pub when he’s already several pints in, and Lewis is nursing his orange juice, wondering how this man became so jaded and lonely.
