There’s a god of broken things.
Things forgotten and lost, things ruined beyond repair. Things cast aside without care, things that used to bring joy and now remind only of regrets. Things the world turned a blind eye on, things best left untouched.
There’s a god who isn’t a god.
An encounter with a horde of hungry ghosts leaves Xie Lian stranded in Ghost City. A long time ago, he would've run. A long time ago, he would've been tempted to grab a sword and challenge every demon on his path.
Now, all he can think of is that he may finally be able to rest for a while.

San Lang’s fingers ghost down the nape of his neck, reverent and hesitant, leaving a tingling trail that keeps on burning. In slow, long, purposeful strokes, he writes a story of adoration on the canvas of Xie Lian’s skin.
His hands slow down when he brushes against the bandages wrapped around Xie Lian’s neck. Xie Lian stiffens involuntarily; then those hands come to rest on his shoulders, grounding and comforting. What would it feel like if San Lang were to venture lower, down his back and sides, what if he untied the worn-out silk and let his fingers trace the line of the shackle hidden beneath it, what if—
Xie Lian takes a deep breath and thinks of the Ethics Sutra.
Life goes on as Xie Lian settles in Ghost City. For the first time in centuries, he's content. For the first time in centuries, the future is hopeful.
(Then why is he feeling so empty?)
