    Summary

    “Xiao-Shu seemed preoccupied,” his mother says the next day, “when I went to see him this morning. Is there something on his mind?” 

    “It’s his mind.” Jingyan laughs sardonically. “So who knows.” 

    His mother watches him for a long moment. “You know he doesn’t have much time.”

    Jingyan looks out to the garden.

    Summary

    Under normal circumstances, Xiao Jingyan would be more than a little annoyed to be trapped in a house not his own, surrounded by men whom he does not trust, and under the effects of a potent truth serum. Especially since he doesn’t know how long this state of affairs will continue for. The reassurances that Li Gang gives him are much less effective than usual, seeing as they are mainly composed of variations on, “I have no idea what’s going on or how this has happened but I’m sure that the Chief has a plan!”

     

     

     

    Xiao Jingyan spends a week trapped in a house with the mysterious Sir Su while they are under the influence of truth serum.
