    Summary

    Wen Kexing gives up his life so that Zhou Zishu may live. Unfortunately, Zhou Zishu is not interested in a life without Wen Kexing. Within the piles of books and scrolls hidden among the treasures kept in the legendary armory, a lonely soul finds something that can help him go back to the past. To fix everything. To right the wrongs he has caused.

    Finding himself back on the day of one of his greatest regrets, the day he foolishly convinced his partner to let Mo Huaiyang into the Ghost Valley, Zhou Zishu is determined to change things. Wen Kexing will not die this time. Not if he can help it. No one will die. At least, not before him.

    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.

    Summary

    "Apologies, Zhou da ren. As you can see, the mercenaries you hired as bodyguards are currently unavailable to serve. Hence, I present myself as their replacement." Wen Kexing preened with his flirtatious gaze and outrageous smiles, delighted in finally capturing Zhou Zishu's attention. He reminded Zhou Zishu a little too much of a prized courtesan who openly advertised certain other types of services. Ones that weren't appropriate to discuss in polite company.

    "I'm sure they are." Zhou Zishu replied wryly, as he made a fleeting glance at the dead bodies that scattered around him. After all, dead people were hardly in a position to defend their professionalism.

     

    Zhou Zishu took an alternative path to retirement. Badly injured, he desperately needed a bodyguard. And Wen Kexing, of course, eagerly volunteered his service.
