    Summary

    The team is woken by a dream of a new immortal. He’s easy enough to track down - Nicolò di Genova, Italian, age 30 - but… he’s not exactly what they were expecting.

    “Copley,” Andy began, her voice surprisingly cool and collected. “Tell us what we’re looking at here.”

    “This is precisely why I wanted to do my due diligence,” Copley explained. “From what you’ve all told me about your pasts, I was expecting a soldier or something along those lines. But you’re looking at Father di Genova.”

    “He’s… a priest,” Joe said slowly, wide-eyed and disbelieving.

    Summary

    "A thousand years and you've never done this?" Nile asked. "Why now?"

    Joe looked over at where Andy stood next to Nicolò. Her dress, ruby red and caught behind her waist and neck with gold knots, couldn’t or perhaps didn’t intend to entirely hide either the knife at the small of her back or the scars on her shoulder and side. "You know why," he said.

    Summary

    “My oath,” Andy says, uncapping the bottle.

    Nile sits up straighter, hands on her knees. Whatever this is, much like the mine, it goes back a long way.

    “Upon my final death, I bequeath Andronika to Nile Freeman, to donate to whichsoever institution--”

    “The Art Institute of Chicago.”

    “To the Art Institute of Chicago,” Andy echoes, “so that my breasts may be culturally appreciated in perpetuity.”

    She tips the bottle and lets out three drops. As they fall to the stone floor, Joe and Nicky rap their knuckles on the nearest pieces of metal: the other lantern for Nicky, the oxidized helmet for Joe. One rap for each drop. In another time, they might have struck their swords on shields.

    Summary

    “So...do you have Aspergers or are you like, full blown autistic?” Nile asks a few months after she’d watched Nicky have a meltdown in the back of their escape van. Nicky shrugs. He doesn’t know what to call himself.

    “I don’t know if that’s what you’re supposed to say,” he admits.

    “I mean, you’re high-functioning either way.” He doesn’t feel high-functioning. Sometimes he feels like he’s just pretending endlessly. Like he’s muddling his way through a game of make believe where the game is to suppress everything about him that makes him weird to others.

    It’s only when he’s with Joe that he feels some of the weight come off his shoulders. Can feel like he can breathe again. Can just rest and let someone else pick up all the things that he can’t, as he tries to find a place called home.
