    Summary

    The thought had been niggling at the back of his mind quite a bit lately. He wasn’t showing Shang Qinghua proper obeisance, was he? They’d grown so comfortable in their roles - Mobei-Jun as Shang Qinghua’s king, and Shang Qinghua as his dutiful servant - that they hadn’t thought to… stop. It was how it had always been. But things were different, now, weren’t they? They’d been different for a long time now. To ignore that wasn’t proper.

    That stops now, Mobei-Jun decides. His ancestors would be rolling in their graves to see him ignore the proper rites of courtship - the fact that he and Shang Qinghua were already mated besides. He was not raised to be some kind of country rube, as much as being sequestered so far up north might imply otherwise. Shang Qinghua was his partner, and, with all factors properly calculated, the more powerful of the two. It was only proper that Mobei-Jun display an appropriate level of submission to his better.

    --

    Mobei-Jun realizes with increasing clarity that he wants to serve Shang Qinghua. Shang Qinghua does NOT pick up on it.

    Summary

    "I must bring a token from each of the borders," he says to Shang Qinghua when they return to Mobei Jun's quarters. "Salt from the sea in the east, cypress boughs from the west, camellia blossoms from south, ice from the north. The blood of the new generation."

    "It's barely spring, my king," Shang Qinghua says. "How are you supposed to set up a tablet in the fall?"

    "Poorly."

    Shang Qinghua sighs. "And why is there always blood?" He's already turned aside, casting his eyes toward the paperwork spread out on Mobei Jun's desk, accrued during Shang Qinghua's absence. The usual shadows dig soft half-moons beneath his eyes.

    "Hit me again," Mobei Jun says.

    -----

    “And that,” says Luo Binghe, the light reflecting red into his eyes as he stared at the bedroom across the garden and down a level, where Shen Yuan was sighing and smiling into his boyfriend’s mouth, glasses askew. “That’s where we bury Shang Qinghua’s body.”

    “Oi.”

    “You can keep him there forever,” says Binghe, as though this is supposed to appeal to him. “You know he’ll never leave you, never reject you, never suck face with anyone else.”

    “Are you crying,” says MB.

    “Of course I’m crying!” bawls Luo Binghe, beautiful face the picture of misery. “The love of my life is kissing some stupid little gremlin and you won’t even help me murder him!”

    Summary

    When Mobei Jun does as requested, and after Shang Qinghua links their pinkies together, he takes a moment to figure out how to explain this to Mobei Jun. “This… It’s an ancient human ritual for oaths, My King. We vow on our hearts, and whoever breaks it will be subjected to... divine punishment.”

    Mobei Jun looks mildly interested. “What kind of punishment?”

    Shang Qinghua solemnly replies, “There is a saying that all ten fingers of the one who breaks the vow will be cut off.”
