Summary: A friend dies, and the rebels slowly starve on Mount Olympus. Meanwhile, Nasir keeps a secret that’s eating him up inside.
Notes: Some missing moments from “Wrath of the Gods”, as well as introspection during scenes in the ep, and close-ups of background moments. Sequel to my fics “Across a Crowded Temple”, “Wild Dogs”, “Worth Wait”, and “Amends”, but could be read without reading any of them first.
“When the time comes, do not look back,” Agron had warned Nasir, back when they were examining their escape tunnel, during the early days of their stay at the temple. “Move quickly and confidently, and set example for your friends from the villa. If you stop, everyone else stops with you, and last in line could get sword in back. If you run, others may follow suit, and someone may get trampled. I trust you to get others to safety while I cover rear.”
And who will cover you? Nasir had wanted to ask but didn’t. He wanted Agron to be able to rely on him. Agron was the warrior, and though Nasir knew a hundred times more about fighting than he once had, Argon was still far superior in that regard. It made sense for Agron to defend the rear. That didn’t mean Nasir had to like it. Still, he suspected that if he remained, he would prove a distraction to Agron, who would doubtless feel the need to defend Nasir’s flank along with his own. And Nasir did want to make sure his friends made it out safely. So even after they reached the outside, where they were almost caught by the Romans and Spartacus ordered them to retreat, Nasir didn’t seek out his beloved, but rather made his way up the mountain with bold and unrushed strides, torch in hand, silently encouraging those behind him by making forward motions with the light. It took everything he had to not look back and make sure Agron was following. All he could do was pray to the gods with every step that he and Agron would be reunited at the mountain’s peak ….
