    Summary

    “I have lived a very long life, Childe," he murmurs, voice low and soft. “And I do not have what humans may consider a true form of origin. But...this face, and this name, are the ones I hold closest to my heart. After all…”

    A small, private smile graces Zhongli's lips.

    “This is how I was once known, to the person most dear to me.”

    Summary

    “When speaking with others, it seems as if you are searching for something.” With a knowing look, Zhongli continues, “When speaking with me, it seems you have found the answer, but you are hesitant to admit it.”

    Childe smiles despite his racing heart. “Perceptive as always, aren’t you, Zhongli?”

    Summary

    Lithe like a fox, the lady of the manor smirks at him as she slides into the conversation, slipping a delicate arm between the house master’s own. Her sole crystalline blue eye shines under the evening sun, “Good evening, sir,” her voice deep and lilting, like a siren beckoning the sailor, “...I heard of your accomplishment lately. Your...ah, ‘business’, has been flourishing these last couple of months, hasn’t it? I would love to hear you spill me some of your secrets”

    Unconsciously, he licks his lips, gaze shifting toward the young lord for a moment. The target was the master, obviously, he wouldn’t aim for second best who doesn’t have enough authority to bend the winery to his favor. But this...lady, clinging to the young master’s arm like a snake to her prey; the newly introduced fiance of said master.

    Perhaps, he could bend the master eventually by winning his beloved’s favor?
