    Summary

    “Freedom, huh?” Cecili murmurs. “Is this what this is? Not having my memories—is that freedom?” He’s worrying the grass between his fingers, tearing out some of it in absentmindedness.
     
    “For some, it might be,” Xiao says, echoing his earlier thoughts. “Do you think that’s what freedom means for you, Cecili?”

    The bard lets out a small, wry laugh. “What do I know of freedom,” he says, and watches as the grass blades drift away in the wind.

    A stray amnesiac bard makes a home for himself in Qingce Village. Despite himself, Xiao visits, again and again.

    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.
