    Summary

    “Dianxia, no!” Hua Cheng huffed.

    Xie Lian set his soft-bristled brush aside and tucked a stray strand of hair behind his ear. He glanced over his shoulder to beam at Hua Cheng. “San Lang, you’re naughty to look before I sent for you,” Xie Lian scolded playfully. “You’ve ruined your surprise.”

    Xie Lian returned to the silk canvas.

    There, with fine strokes and blushing bright color, Xie Lian had painted precious Hong Hong-er, round-faced and wide-eyed, pudgy hands cupping a pink magnolia. Xie Lian hadn’t burdened this idyllic Hong Hong-er with any bandages, choosing instead to paint his right eye as red as Hua Cheng’s rain, as soft and full of light as befitting such a clever child.

    or: Xie Lian takes up painting and decides Hua Cheng is his favorite subject, to Hua Cheng's chagrin.

    Summary

    [Spoilers for All 5 Books]

    “Don’t leave me,” Xie Lian begs, “San Lang, stay. Please.”


    After the final battle, Hua Cheng stays with Xie Lian. It should be good. Xie Lian should be grateful. He should be happy.

    Instead, he's terrified. Maybe it would have been easier for Xie Lian to believe in something he couldn't see than to trust in the strength of a silent, flickering ghost fire.

    Summary

    The blend that Hua Cheng favors is not quite like any Xie Lian can remember having tried before. It is earthy and smoky, almost spicy in flavor, and finishes with a peculiar sort of sweetness. Xie Lian always thinks he has a firm grasp on the flavor until the next time he tastes it, and it surprises him all over again. It is bold, unique, and the more he drinks it the more he appreciates it. Even now, as he sets about pouring the water and steeping the leaves, the smell of it wafts over him in wisps of steam that fill his head with thoughts of San Lang, San Lang, San Lang.
