When the bandages finally come off, there's a very thin pale line snaking down Nick's nose, from its bridge to the left side. It is not that big and you can't really notice unless you're face to face, but it's there. And the bastard still looks gorgeous and is so very happy Cody can't bring himself to feel guilty for not being there to provide the much needed back up.
"What the hell are you smiling for?"
"Because this" he points to his new tiny scar with boyish joy. "This you cannot beat."
"Sorry?"
"Thirty you, twenty eight me. Yes?"
"Yes."
"Well. Even so. Did any of your thirty look this broken? And forever?"
"I... can't say they have."
Nick laughed. "Haha! This, my dear friend, is what victory looks like!"
Cody gives hims a smile that is full of envy. "You competitive bastard."
