    Summary

    Yunlan’s aware of how he looks right now. Holding a ridiculously long feather duster and wearing a dirty apron, he looks more like an angry housewife than the reluctant peacemaker that he ended up being. However, as he looks up to meet the eyes of the Black Cloak Envoy, the kindness and concern he sees there stops him in his tracks. He’s never been hero material anyway.

    Summary

    If Yunlan is going to learn how to make actual food that requires more effort than just boiling water and putting hot water into stuff, he’s going to have to take all the notes.

    “Right,” he says to himself. “How hard can it be?”

    He watches all twenty-two minutes and fourteen seconds of Chef Shen's video without fast-forwarding. When it comes to an end, he clicks on the replay button.

    He ends up taking zero notes, and the only thing he manages to learn from the whole exercise is that Chef Shen -Shen Wei- is really fucking beautiful when he smiles.

    Summary

    He’s thought about this moment every day for nearly a decade. Three times now, he’s felt the quiet elation of knowing Alex has served his tour and is back on home turf, safe and unharmed. This last deployment is half the reason Michael couldn’t face him before he left.

     

    He’s never imagined this, though. Never figured he’d get the call. He’s always imagined just overhearing it in the bar some day. ‘You hear what happened to that Manes boy? Such a shame.’ He’s imagined all of the pain and none of the right to it, none of the right to mourn.

    “I’m Second Lieutenant Blackburn. I serve with Captain Manes. This isn’t an official call. It’s a favor, really. But. He was injured in the field three days ago. They MEDEVAC’d him back to base, but - but he’s in a bad way. They’re not sure if he’s gonna make it.”

    Michael gets a phone call after Alex is injured, and it changes everything.
