    Summary

    Slowly, Nicky says: “Who has Joe?” 

    Nonsensically, Booker looks to Nile. Her brows furrow as Nicky and Andy follow his gaze. Nile holds her hands up as if to deny it, but then alarm takes refusal’s place. “Oh my God.” Her hands clasp around her mouth. So. She had seen something. 

    “Nile?” Andy asks. It isn’t gentle. It’s commanding. Firm. She wants an answer. Booker wishes there’s a better answer to give her. 

    “It’s...is it?” Nile asks Booker, and he finds himself the center of attention once more. 

    “Quynh,” he says. “Quynh took Joe. Put him in a...a metal coffin. I don’t know where she went.” Nicky’s fingers go tight around Booker’s shoulder and knee. All the color has drained from his face. All his concern and worry replaced with frightening blankness. 

    Then, Nicky stands. He walks out the door. And he doesn't look back.

    Summary

    “This,” Nursey said, gesturing around them vaguely, “is the year that you fall in love with me.” 

    He expected Dex’s face to crack with a smile, or another roll of his eyes so sharp it could easily be written off, but neither of those things happened. Dex maintained his easy gaze, staring into Nursey’s eyes like he was looking for something.

    “Won’t take much,” he murmured.

    Summary

    The thing about being a thousand years old was that years didn’t feel very long anymore; they were an over-produced commodity. The years of studying at al-Azhar wouldn’t feel like much at all to him now, but back then, they’d lasted centuries, and perhaps it was because all the time he spent without Nicky felt interminable, even before he’d known who it was he was missing. He’d carried with him a vague and inexplicable sense that he was waiting for something to begin, though he knew not what.

    ***

    “I think I was in love with you before I knew you.”

    Nicky laughed into the corner of Joe’s jaw, breath tickling his neck. After all these years, he’d memorized the shape of Nicky’s nose, the sensation of his stubble at every stage of unshavenness, absolutely every imaginable corner and contour of his body, and the more he knew it the more he loved it, like an old favorite song that developed new layers of meaning every time you listened. “Always the poet.”

    “I really do think so, though,” Joe chuckled. “I die of love for you,” he said, switching to old Arabic, quoting Abū Nuwās. “And then I return to life so I can kiss you one more time,” he continued. His own words.

    Summary

    “Nicolo prays. He asks God, every day, five times a day, for answers. He begs God to show him the truth. In the rare times he’s on his lonesome, Nicolo extends his arms to Heaven and asks God to strike him down forever, if he should not love Yusuf. Every time he does, within two days, Nicolo dies, and Yusuf waits for him while he comes back. Yusuf’s eyes get wet, like they do every time he’s relieved Nicolo lives again, and his calloused hands take one of Nicolo’s, and all Nicolo can think about is how much he wants to kiss Yusuf. He’s never kissed anyone before.

    Nicolo can face Death fearlessly, and fight despite wounds that would kill a normal man, but when it comes to kissing the man he’s spent just over a decade loving wholeheartedly, he feels a coward.”

    Or, two men of God travel and fall in love every day for nine hundred years.

    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.
