    Summary

    There is one lone glaze lily left, shining brilliant blue in the depths of Dihua Marsh. Zhongli kneels over it as Xiao looks on.

    “The contract is fulfilled,” he whispers. He takes his mask off with trembling fingers and sets it aside. The blood that stains it seeps into the ground, turning it rust-red. “That which thou seeketh is now bestowed unto thee, for my promise is solid as stone.”

    (Zhongli, in the before and after.)

    Bookmark Notes:

    “Do you know what my life is like, these days?” Xiao finally continues. “I can hear everything.” He turns his head to look out over the water towards Liyue Harbor. “Every wish. Every cry of their hearts. But even though I am an adeptus, I cannot answer every one. I cannot fulfill them all. Our enemies still rise and I cannot be in two places at once.”

    Zhongli is sorry. He is sorry that Xiao has to go through this, that he was the one who shackled Xiao with such a fate. The contract can be renegotiated, he wants to say. I can free you. But—because he is a coward, because he does not wish to be left behind yet again, instead he asks:

    “How do you forgive yourself? For all the people you did not save?”

    Xiao laughs bitterly. It is the first time Zhongli has heard him laugh in millenia. “That’s what I mean, Rex Lapis. Maybe you can never forgive yourself for it,” he says. His smile is wretched. “Maybe you just have to learn to live, despite it.”
