    Summary

    Daylight is just starting to break, the sky a cool and greyish blue, like the shade Zhou Zishu so often favors in his robes. Wen Kexing sighs and shifts closer to him.

    “How long have you been sitting here?” Zhou Zishu murmurs. “Ying'er says he sensed you get out of bed in the dead of night.”

    Or: there's visitors, a journey, some reminiscence about the past, and most of all, gratitude for a very happy present.

    Summary

    Zhou Zishu works in law enforcement in the biggest city on the new planet, although his dedication to the law is questionable at best.

    Perhaps the best example of this is the lustful man who runs the nearby noodle shop - the one who is almost certainly leading the biggest crime syndicate around.

    With real chicken in his food though, and - although Zhou Zishu is reluctant to admit it - animal attraction between the two of them, well...Zhou Zishu may as well have never heard of Ghost Valley at all.

    Summary

    “Are you suspecting me of being the one who hurt you, A-Xu?” Wen Kexing says. “I would never. You’re too handsome to kill.” Zhou Zishu gapes at him, and Wen Kexing adds, “For legal reasons that is a jest. A mere jest.”

    “You’re expecting me to put an enormous amount of faith in someone who can’t explain why he found my half lifeless body on the shore of a bay most people don’t have direct access to in the middle of the night.”

    “Truth be told, A-Xu, I don’t sleep normal people hours,” Wen Kexing says. “Can you blame me for ending up in places most people don’t?”

    (In an attempt to completely leave his past behind, Zhou Zishu stages a complicated escape from Tianchuang and retires from his profession as a killing machine of his own kind. He’s not expecting to be thrown into the enigma of Wen Kexing.)

    Summary

    “Hope you sell lots of flowers at the farmer’s market, Lan Zhan! I’m rooting for you!” Wei Ying yells from his bicycle as he waves goodbye one evening. He almost spills the hibiscus tea Lan Zhan gave him.

    Lan Zhan waves back and replies, “Don’t forget to use your headlights on the way home. Be safe, Wei Ying.”

    --

    Lan Zhan runs a flower shop. Wei Ying is the local delivery boy. (Can I make it any more obvious.)

    Summary

    “Watch the road,” Zhou Zishu says, his face warmer than he wants it to be, thankful for the car’s dim interior. “You won’t get anything from me if you wrap us around a pole.”

    “True,” Wen Kexing agrees sagely, his eyes turning dutifully forward. “There is only one pole here I’d like to wrap something around.”

    Zhou Zishu is startled into an unfortunate bark of laughter. Wen Kexing grins like he won something. Smug bastard.

    “Shut up,” Zhou Zishu says. “Just don’t talk again until we get there.”

    Days before Zhou Zishu puts a plan in motion that will implode his life and probably kill him, he spends a lost weekend with a man he meets at a bar.

    A year later, their paths cross again.
