    Summary

    "What kind of joke is this?" He asks him. Maybe his earlier deductions were wrong, and this boy really is a new addition to Song Minwoo's group. Maybe they told this 'Yoo Jonghyuk' to pretend to do this, to trick him. This boy, way out of his league by looks alone. They must've caught a glimpse of the protagonist's name from his screen, while he was reading.

    What a cruel joke.

    Kim Dokja's face twists. He pulls his wrist, trying to dislodge 'Yoo Jonghyuk.' The grip remains steadfast.

    "It's not a joke," his immaculate eyebrows furrow, creating wrinkles. "Why would I joke about my name?"

    "Let go of me," he near growls. He looks away from the boy's face.

    "How do I convince you I'm not joking?" He asks.

    -

    "Hey! Stop, where are you bringing me?"

    "Breakfast."

    What the hell.

    "Are you going to force feed me garlic or something? Poison food and give it to me?"

    "No."

    True to his words, they go to the store around the corner. Kim Dokja can't believe this decrepit bastard.

    -

    While it might not be by everyone, and Kim Dokja might not even think it --
    He is loved.
    And this?
    This is a story in which Kim Dokja is loved.

    Summary

    Later, they live out a whole new life as normal students and then normal members of society, and nothing bad at all happens. But they haven't escaped the shadow of their previous life: Joonghyuk tries to play e-sports seriously this time, Dokja works in a marginally better office, Sooyoung writes webnovels with unsurprising success. Every day they distance themselves from other people, too conscious of the world they left behind and the scars it left on them, and they don't live together again but oh, how they want to.

    Later, Dokja's father ends up disappearing without a trace, much neater than the first time around.

    Later, inevitably, they die again, one by one, but right now—

    Joonghyuk grips Dokja's pale wrist in a rundown playground, firm with the strength of his conviction, and at last, Dokja gives him a smile.

    Or, our luckless trio find themselves stuck in a cycle of reincarnation, and learn to live with it (and also each other).

    Summary

    “Stranger, dear stranger,” says Wei Ying, teasing, “save this humble one some face, hm?”

    “That would require having face to save.”

    “Is that an insult? Are you insulting me? This is the best day of my life.”

    “It is an observation.” The stranger gestures at their masks, in a bitchy way that Wei Ying is growing to understand is just his Natural Way Of Being, like he’s pointing out the fact that they’re both wearing masks and thus have no face to save, you fucking idiot.

    After three years away at boarding school, Wei Ying returns home to a masked ball.

    Summary

    “Sorry, I, uh. Laundry day caught up to me before I could catch up with it. I saw this shirt left in the washer a few days ago, and—“ Wei Ying blinks up at Lan Zhan through dark eyelashes that he wants to kiss, maybe, and gives him an uncharacteristically hesitant smile. “Do you mind?”

    I mind the fact that we are not married, Lan Zhan thinks.

    Wei Ying keeps borrowing Lan Zhan’s clothes. It is only mildly driving him insane.
