    Summary

    They don’t hang out. They’re not friends. The only time they talk is nights like these when Hua Cheng has no one else to turn to. Nights he takes a sledgehammer to rock bottom.

    Or: Hua Cheng leaves his shitty family behind, and goes to the only place he knows he's safe.

    Summary

    Summary

    Xie Lian is making the coast to coast drive home with Hua Cheng, who he’s had a crush on for years but was never brave enough to talk to. They learn more about each other day by day through spontaneous adventures, childhood stories, and worries confessed into comfortable silence.

    But hovering over the peace they’ve carved out for themselves is the uncertain weight of Xie Lian’s future and a recent failure that has earned him his father's disappointment.

    Summary

    But the cool expression that he so often sees on Mu Qing’s face is absent, skin red and puffed under his eyelids. The harsh glare of the fluorescent hallway lights reveal the glittering wetness of his eyes. His nose shows signs of irritation, as if he’s been frequently rubbing at it.

    “My boyfriend broke up with me,” Mu Qing deadpans, and he enters the apartment, shoving past Feng Xin.

    “Uh,” Feng Xin says because, What the hell?

     

    (Or, Feng Xin deals with a very drunk and a very sad Mu Qing)
