    Summary

    “I’m not marrying you, Jim.  Find someone else.”

    “You don’t have to marry me!  You just have to come to Thalamos with me and say that we’re married according to the customs of,” he checked his PADD and found the right row of data, “the people of Quirian VI.  Which we are.  Their common-law marriage tradition just involves sleeping three consecutive nights in the same bed, and there was that whole month first-year when we were getting the Denebian bed-bugs out of my bunk, remember?”

    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

    “Let’s start with an easy one: How long have you been together?”

    Joe flicks his eyes up at the ceiling as if he needs to think about this for a moment. Which he does, because he’s known Nicky all of four days.

    “Three years.”

    “It’s been nearly four," Nicky scoffs.

    “I was rounding down.”

    “Oh, now you’re rounding down? I’m sure you were rounding up when—”

    “Okay, let’s stop there,” Copley interrupts him, eyes a little wider as he scribbles down on his notepad.

    After a fight at work, their boss signs Joe and Nicky up to mandatory reconciliation therapy. Only somehow, somewhere some wires get crossed and Copley, their therapist, thinks they're there for couples therapy. And who would Joe and Nicky be to correct him if they can bet on when he'll notice instead?
