    Summary

    It’s customary for the people of Liyue to pitch in for the Mingxiao lantern. Even Xiao can acknowledge its opulent grandiosity—it’s a symbol of unity, a celestial body rivalling the full moon, a beacon guiding old warriors home. In the glittering wake of its trail, he finds reticent peace.

    Now, however, he defers his gaze to the maiden on top of the church spire. “I fail to see how catching a ball of yarn is the main event of your festival.”

     
    Xiao's convinced to attend Ludi Harpastum with Venti, and he can't help but make a few comparisons.

    Summary

    “They’re bitter,” he offers. “Ganyu eats them.”

    Barbatos’s eyes go round. “Raw?” he says, astonished. “My word.” He pauses, studying the qingxin in deep contemplation. Then he pops a petal into his mouth and immediately gags.

    Xiao concludes then and there that the Anemo Archon is an idiot. “I warned you,” he says, utterly unsympathetic.

    “That’s true!” Barbatos laughs. He runs a thumb over the bloom, but (thankfully) doesn’t try to eat any more. “I think it’ll grow on me,” he muses, then smiles, as if he’s said something clever.

    A selection of memories. Venti and Xiao, from the beginning to the end—and after.

    Summary

    Xiao hasn’t eaten a dream in two millennia. Yaksha have no need to devour dreams. If it were anyone else, Xiao would let him suffer. But he had to find Barbatos. He had to dream powerfully enough to sour the world around him. And he had to save Xiao’s life.

    Xiao leans in closer. He does not dwell in gifts or in favor. Everything has a price.

    The life he lives now, he thinks, is worth the taste of this nightmare.
