    Summary

    “She was going to kiss me,” Wei Ying says, muffled, into his hands.

    Lan Zhan makes sure he keeps his breaths even. “Hm,” he says. Wei Ying looks up at him, wild: a little tipsy, perhaps. Confused, in a panic. His mouth is red like he’s been kissed—he hasn’t. He’s a lip biter, has a habit of picking at his dry lips, the winter sores at the corner of his mouth. It drives Lan Zhan to madness. He dreams of Wei Ying’s puffy mouth, often, sometimes with the real Wei Ying in a sleeping bag on the floor next to his bed. On mornings like those he wakes up in a cloud of embarrassment—hobbling to the bathroom at dawn, running a loud shower to hide the sounds. Wei Ying sleeps on.

    “How do I—” Wei Ying starts, stops. He then lets out a single laugh, another. He says: “Oh my god. How do I kiss? Lan Zhan, how do I kiss?”

    Or: Wei Ying has a girlfriend now. Wei Ying doesn't want his best friend to lag behind.

    Summary

    “Have dinner with me,” Lan Zhan says. One of them has to ask it. They’ve been dancing around it, and Lan Zhan has the sense that if he doesn’t ask now, he won’t have the chance. Wei Ying feels like a ghost – some sort of apparition dreamt up by him and his phone. Lan Zhan tries to imagine sitting across the table from a set of pale-pale wrists and idol eyes. Can’t.

    Summary

    Wei Ying has pretty much everything sorted. He's a third-year drama student at NYU, he's got a solid group of friends, and he knows what he wants from life. Then he meets an exchange student from Shanghai, and nothing seems so certain anymore.

    Fellas, it's not gay to help your friend practice kissing, is it?

    Summary

    Wei Wuxian hovers, lingering by the privacy screen, as if the distance between it and the bathtub is a ravine he should not cross. “You want me to…”

    “My hair,” Lan Wangji says, stilted. Almost as awkward as Wei Wuxian feels. “Please.”

    “You don’t have to say please,” Wei Wuxian tells him, absurdly. “That’s not — that’s not what I’m here for.”

    “Then tell me what you are here for.”

    He sees, rather than feels, himself freeze: his hand coming up two inches short of touching the soap, his chest stilling as the breath catches in his lungs. To cheat you, he thinks. To lie to you. “To help you.”

    (Or: an heir, an outcast, and three conspiracies.)
