    Summary

    “Gege’s been gone a long time.” Having wiped his hands of coconut flakes, Hua Cheng doesn’t waste another second to turn to face his beloved, immediately bending his head to kiss Xie Lian’s forehead. “I was very bored. Two days, fourteen hours without you was truly unbearable, the worst of sufferings.”

    At that, Hua Cheng leans back, closes his eye, and taps his own lips.

    Summary

    Hua Cheng is passion and loyalty personified when he speaks, his voice a raw whisper. “Let me love you. Let me show you. I promise you, I’ll never leave you. I’ll never hurt you. I’ll forever be devoted to you, and only you.”

    Xie Lian used to think he had experienced every emotion there was to experience in this world, but he was wrong. Being loved by Hua Cheng is like being a butterfly, delicate and precious, held in the cusp of his hands with all the gentleness in the world, being kept safe from the raging winds and the way people could be cruel. And suddenly, everything he’s ever done makes sense to him, it means something now, all because Hua Cheng sees him. He knows him.

    One person is enough.


    Or: A post-canon story of Hua Cheng and Xie Lan talking and learning and exploring intimacy together.

    Summary

    Hua Cheng is two heads taller than him, twice as broad, and at least three times as witty.

    But right now, any and all teasing comments are locked in the back of his throat while his jaw hangs slack, watching.

    Summary

    Mu Qing and Feng Xin put up a fight, trying their best to protect him from the thing he wants desperately—Hua Cheng’s arms around him—until finally Hua Cheng has them wrapped in butterfly silk again and is scooping up the incapacitated Xie Lian and carrying him through the caves until they end up in something resembling a bedchamber.

    Hua Cheng lays Xie Lian down onto a pile of somehow-fresh hay, already covered with the ghost’s own outer robe, and Xie Lian begs again with his eyes for Hua Cheng to look.

    Hua Cheng won’t look. He keeps his gaze averted as he whispers, “Your Highness. Don’t… don’t be afraid. This one isn’t going to hurt you.”

    Xie Lian wants to cry, but he physically can’t. He wouldn’t care if Hua Cheng did hurt him. He needs Hua Cheng beside him so much he’s ashamed of it. He understands those dark, twisted paintings in the mural. Hua Cheng thinks he’s the unworthy one. But he has it backwards.

    - - -

    In which HuaLian continue on their quest to prove the other person is worthy of their love, even if they themselves don't feel worthy.
