    Summary

    She’d thought the name Yiling Laozu was strange when she’d seen it on her signup sheet, although she’d mostly hoped that her opponent would...actually be Chinese, with a nickname like that. When the name is called by the referee, Lan Zhan wonders again the kind of person who would choose that name. Then she looks up, and her mind stops.

    Or rather, her mind immediately travels back thirteen years to when she’d last seen Wei Ying’s face.

    When she was sixteen, despite her best efforts, Lan Zhan fell in love with an infuriating visiting student at her kung fu school. When she’s 29, Lan Zhan meets Wei Ying again, and she realises that there are some things that haven’t changed.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    There was that time when Wei Ying showed up to a meet dressed like Slutty Legolas, blasting Pony out of his tinny phone speakers, and Lan Zhan had shot a flight so hard he’d pulverised the straw butt, with one arrow getting lodged in the Yunmeng gym wall. He’d refused to talk to Wei Ying until Wei Ying agreed to change out of the outfit. What a bore.

    Summary

    “Close your eyes,” Wei Ying says, and Lan Zhan, surprisingly obedient, does. He takes a piece of the dessert and presses it gently against Lan Zhan’s lips. He notices a gentle crease between Lan Zhan’s eyebrows, at first, before he—and again this is a surprise—opens his mouth to take the bite, lips brushing against Wei Ying’s fingertip. Wei Ying wrenches his hand away, nearly dropping the plate. It’s clearly been too long since he last slept with anyone if he’s having impure thoughts about his coworkers eating food at 3pm on a Wednesday.

    Or: Lan Zhan and Wei Ying work in the NYC test kitchen for an unnamed food magazine.
