The next night Lan Xichen goes back to the beach. He keeps out of sight at first, hoping to catch the man unawares first, his mind still reeling from the research he did during the day.
It’s probably not what Lan Qiren and Lan Wangji wanted for him when they sent him on this vacation, but Lan Xichen needs to know what’s going on here. The only thing his research turned up were tales of mermaid and Lan Xichen is not ready to believe that.
Until he catches sight of a rather huge tail, flapping out of the water.

His own apartment has a top floor especially tailored to his needs; it’s only been finished for a little less than two months, and if Jiang Cheng is being honest, he kind of regrets that he doesn’t get to use it.
Maybe he can replicate it in Lan Xichen’s apartment.
“That would be wonderful,” he agrees and Lan Xichen nods in thought.
“I got a new neighbour recently, just a few apartments down. I think he remodelled his swimming pool. Maybe we can ask him for help,” he muses and Jiang Cheng frowns at hearing that but then brushes it off.

“Mother,” Jiang Cheng sighs, already incredibly tired over this, but his mother only glares at him.
“Where is he?” she asks, looking around as if Jiang Cheng is hiding Lan Xichen somewhere out of sight and he scrubs a hand over his face.
“He’s not ready to meet you,” Jiang Cheng says with a grimace mostly because he didn’t yet have time to tell Lan Xichen about their status in the ocean and Jiang Cheng doesn’t want to just drop that bomb on him.
