    Summary

    Zhou Zishu takes the pipe, checks that the ember is still alive, and sets it in his mouth. When he sucks the smoke into his mouth, he can only just barely perceive the pungent herbal scent of it, like passing someone in the street who had smoked hours before. But it feels the same as it always has, hot and dry in the back of his throat. He holds it in his lungs, offers the pipe to Wen Kexing. Exhales slowly through his nose.

    On the road to Longyuan Pavilion.

    Summary

    They’re dressed light enough for the thick, torrid weather, the sun a coal over their skin, the sweat-damp fabric clinging to their bodies even more unbearable.

    Wen Kexing sticks close anyway. Zhou Zishu lets him.

    Summary

    “Do you know him?” Jin Wang asks.

    The ringing in Zhou Zishu's ears gets louder. “No, Wangye,” he says.

    At Zhou Zishu’s voice, the prisoner freezes.

     

    Or: Jin Wang tries another way to get Zhou Zishu back.

    Summary

    Zishu's mind has been trained to this sort of work: to take in every meaningless detail and produce from that the truth. To assess danger and opportunity alike. Of course, this is a misuse of his talents. Kexing shouldn't concern him. He should be nothing to Zishu: just another foolish boy to mold into a useful weapon, or else to discard. But then, Zishu has seen what's really inside him, the pitiless tiger who lives in his guts. And he might be the only one who has. Kexing let the other boys off with bruises, didn't he?

    He is Zishu's, somehow. As much as anything has ever been.
