    Summary

    The limping suitcase almost slipped from Zhou Zishu’s hand when he saw him, clutching a spare jacket and a bag of Skittles to the chest of his pajama shirt, under an orange scrolling LED panel that’s paging the most recently landed flight. Qantas Airways, hailing from Canberra. Everything else—the sticky carpet, the merry-go-rounds of luggage, the custodian snuffing out a cigarette in the water fountain—vaporized from Zhou Zishu’s vision. Everything else desaturated.

    Wen Kexing opened his soft, pink mouth. “Say you’ve missed me.”

    Summary

    Three months. He’ll stay three months. Just long enough for that shrimpy Zhang Chengling to wean into this new world, and then he’ll leave. Just three months he’ll allow himself that brassy, beautiful line cook, who barked the most flirtatious insult at Zhou Zishu as he charged down the cracked asphalt with a towering pallet jack of wholesale soy sauce boxes; his voice magnetic like an army general’s, clear above the rumbling gallop of his condiment fleet.

    Summary

    Wei Ying abandons her suitcase to investigate the sleeping situation, already coming up with a hundred reasons not to inconvenience Lan Zhan by stealing half of her fucking bed, and then gets a better look at it.

    It’s huge. Wei Ying has seen a king bed before, and this is bigger than that. Is that a California King? Is that what those huge-ass orgy beds are called? There are parking spaces smaller than this bed. Wei Ying has lived in apartments smaller than this bed.

    “You know,” Wei Ying says thoughtfully, “I’ll level with you. I was gonna volunteer to sleep on the couch, or steal some pillows and blankets and sleep in the bathtub, but then I saw this monstrosity. Lan Zhan, look at this fucking bed.”

    Lan Zhan rests her hands on the room divider, her face softly amused. “I am looking.”

    “We could tend a whole herd of sheep on this bed,” Wei Ying says, warming to her subject. “We could cross the Pacific Ocean and weather any storm on this bed. Fuck, Lan Zhan, I could stage an entire community theatre production of Chicago on this bed.”

    Or: There was only one bed, but that part's fine, actually.

    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.
