    Summary

    "How long are you going to keep us here?" Nicky asked.

    "It need not be long. You could be free in less than an hour if you give me what I want."

    "But I don't know anything!" Nicky blurted out, sounding genuinely frustrated. "I don't know what you want from me."

    The interrogator cupped Nicky's chin, fingers leaving small dents in Nicky's pale skin. "Oh, Mr. Jones. You know exactly what I want from you."

    Summary

    The beautiful man drops his hands from Joe’s face instantly, and his skin feels colder without his touch.

    “I’m Nicky,” Nicky says woodenly. “I’m...I’m your familiar.”

    “I have a familiar?”

     

     

    (The last thing Joe remembers is getting drunk with his best friend Booker in a bar after a fight with his terrible boyfriend, Keane. But he wakes up in a hospital, with a gorgeous man at his bedside, telling him impossible things. Things like how he's Joe's familiar. Things like how they're married.)

    Summary

    “So,” Nile says, after watching Yusuf carefully clean and stitch Andy’s wound. “Y’all went to medical school, then? Guess that’s one way to pass the centuries.”

    Nicky laughs, a soft and tired sound. “Not all of us.”

    Or: five(ish) times Yusuf practiced medicine over the years, and one time someone helped heal him.
