This was it. He had finally pushed Lan Zhan too far. He had always wondered what would be the straw that broke the camel's back, would it be the piles of dirty dishes? The sketches carelessly thrown all over their shared living space? Never in his wildest dreams had he ever imagined the cause of his death would be bragging about the size of Lan Zhan’s dick to Su She of all people. Well at least he would die exactly the way he had lived…in the most ridiculous manner possible.

"As it should be," says Wei Ying, and does not tell him that he has all of Lan Zhan's albums downloaded onto his phone, listened to over and over when he's on a train, a plane, waiting for a taxi, has followed his career since he overheard half a Mendelssohn when they were fifteen.

Lan Wangji pulled out his laptop and began to write. “Mn. I was going to directly contact your parent, but I could not find their contact information.”
Sizhui wasn’t exactly surprised. “He must’ve forgotten to send in his formation. It sounds like something he would’ve done,” he smiled.
Lan Wangji was still tapping on the keyboard as he continued, “Then we’ll have to fix that. What is your dad’s name?”
“His name is Wei Ying.”
Sizhui finds out that his history teacher, Mr. Lan used to know his dad. They were close, but fell out of touch because of unkown reasons. After learning about their past with each other, Sizhui decides that he has to take the situation into his own hands with help from his friends.
