    Summary

    Three months. He’ll stay three months. Just long enough for that shrimpy Zhang Chengling to wean into this new world, and then he’ll leave. Just three months he’ll allow himself that brassy, beautiful line cook, who barked the most flirtatious insult at Zhou Zishu as he charged down the cracked asphalt with a towering pallet jack of wholesale soy sauce boxes; his voice magnetic like an army general’s, clear above the rumbling gallop of his condiment fleet.

    -

    chaperoning a new orphan across the Pacific runs into complications.

    Summary

    “What’s next?” Wen Kexing finds that he doesn't want to know, but he asks anyway.

    “Scent, touch, hearing, and then sight.”

    He pulls Zhou Zishu’s face down to his neck. “What’s this smell?”

    “Um, the green bottle with the cork—no, the agate stopper—on the stool next to the bathtub.”

    Wen Kexing lets him go, reassured at least by that. He thinks for a while, and needles out, “So all this time, I’ve been cooking for someone who can’t even taste the hard work I put in.”

    -

    cooking for a dying person in the shadow of his old home, until his self-destruct button can be safely turned off.

    Summary

    Seven nails and three autumns of torment would pave the road to the Underworld – or at least, that was how it was supposed to be. There was a way to bring someone back from the Seven Nails, but such a miracle would never be without its cost: Zhou Zishu would have to spend three years in a living death, incapable of even the smallest movement, locked away inside his body away from any of his senses. His body would go on functioning without his knowledge, and he would have no say in whatever happened to him.

    Zhou Zishu’s recollection of that time in limbo was hazy, but it was enough to tell him two things, for sure.
    One, that he had survived hell.
    And two, that someone had loved him all the way through it.

    (Or: After the confrontation in ep 33, they found a way to heal ZZS's injuries. WKX helped him through 3 years without his senses and memories, only for ZZS to wake up not remembering who he was. Heartbreaks ensued. They figured it out in the end though.)
