    Summary

    "Wei Ying doesn’t want A-Yuan’s first beach to be the weird city kind, full of cigarette butts and casinos and pop-up DJ booths. He wants it to be the kind where everything smells of ocean, and the horizon stretches out forever. Wei Ying wants A-Yuan to know there’s a world out there. One that’s his, if he wants it."

    Wei Ying and Lan Zhan take A-Yuan to the beach for the first time.

    Summary

    Lan Wangji doesn’t ask Wei Ying to stay because he doesn't want to burden Wei Ying with all the things that live in his heart. Lan Wangji loves too much, wants until it burns him. He's a flame that will consume everything in its wake, and he can't do that to Wei Ying. It isn't right.

    Summary

    After a while he can feel a palm against his face, gentle fingers soft and soothing. It’s not real, not exactly: he can tell the difference between a ghost’s touch and a living person’s, between a spirit-vision and an overactive imagination. His education has been thorough. But the beating has also been thorough, so for now he forgets what he knows and leans into it, into the hand cupping his cheek. It’s soft and dry as those forgotten petals, as the touch of a pillow. He can smell wildflowers, can taste blood and dirt. My baby, his mother says, and he closes his eyes. My treasure. He barely remembers the sound of her voice, but the feeling of it is just the same. Just the same as ever.

     

    [In which Lan Wangji loses almost everything, plants a garden, and grows a second chance.]

    Summary

    Lan Zhan is silent for a long moment, and the van's speakers quietly pipe the second song on the album into the empty space between them. Then Lan Zhan shifts his hand a little on Wei Ying's leg, presses his fingers once into the meat of his thigh. "Alright," he says.

    "Alright," Wei Ying echoes in a wheeze.

    "Is that better?" Lan Zhan checks, because he is a good boy. Then he spreads his fingers out a little wider, because he is evil and must be stopped.

    -

    Lan Zhan is driving to Chicago. Wei Ying tags along.
