    Summary

    The man stares at him, and then shakes his head, messy hair shaking with it. “Car trouble, Detective?” The way his lips curl around the word ‘detective’ strikes Shinichi as strange, eerily familiar, and Shinichi almost has to physically shake the feeling away before he can reply.

    “Engine’s making a weird noise,” Shinichi says, and then his thoughts catch up with alacrity, his muscles tensing all at once. “What makes you think I’m a detective?”

    “Police tags on your car,” the man replies, grin growing wider. “Plus this is a Camry from the nineties. No one drives those but police, these days, and regular officers drive patrol cars.” He leans forward a little, gloved hands circling his helmet and lowering it slightly to his handlebars for extra balance. “Far from undercover, if you know what you’re looking for.”

    The cloud cover shifts, revealing the gorgeous full moon, and the light catches the man just right, surrounding him in a pearly glow and putting his face in shadow. “And you know what you’re looking for?”

    Summary

    It is, Wang Zhi thinks, entirely too early for him to begin hallucinating. Sure, he already spent more than three days in this miserable cell, and the bruises and welts left by his captors ache; the food has been scarce and the water even scarcer. But all of it combined should not result in him being so far gone he would hear Tang Fan's voice. Tang Fan is in the capital, safe, solving cases and striking confused horror in the hearts of any wrongdoers, cherished and protected by his family. Tang Fan is -

    - dragged into the stinking, narrow space of Wang Zhi's prison, arguing with the guards on the way. Something about the proper treatment of His Majesty's subjects.
