    Summary

    Xie Lian opens a restaurant. He Xuan and Hua Cheng are his only repeat customers.
    - - -
    Xie Lian lifted his head when he heard the welcoming bell ring and walked back out to the main room, wiping his hands on his apron. “Hello, can I help—”

    He paused when he caught sight of the duo that had just walked in. They were both tall, ghostly pale, and each was truly the most beautiful thing Xie Lian had ever seen. Xie Lian would recognize them anywhere. They had come into his shop on opening night, when he’d actually had quite a crowd. They had come early, and stayed late, and were the only people the whole night to ask for seconds. For some reason, Xie Lian had gotten the feeling that they were mischievous spirits, who had come simply to enjoy the chaos and then disappear, never to be seen again.

    Except now they were back.

    "Está bien", dijo Xie Lian, asumiendo que estaba hablando de su persona especial.

    "Contigo."

    "QUÉ."

    Summary

    “Hey,” Hua Cheng answers the call with a smile, excited at the thought of hearing his lover’s voice.

    “I never knew you wrote me a love letter,” was what He Xuan said in lieu of a greeting and the smile on Hua Cheng’s face froze.

    “What?”

    He Xuan snorts, “Your handwriting is atrocious, as usual. But why didn’t you say anything earlier? We could’ve been fucking each other and lazily making out since the dawn of the French revolution.”

    or

    He Xuan and Hua Cheng have been inseparable since the night Hua Cheng stripped him of his humanity and helped him exact his revenge on his family’s murderer. He Xuan pays his debt the best way he knows how—with his life.

    Summary

    Hua Cheng cooks his favorite meal, encouraged by Xie Lian. His favorite song plays and he accusingly gazes at Xie Lian who grins, eyes crinkling sweetly. He attempts to flip the pancakes that Xie Lian had taught him so many years ago. He's chases after them, tittering dangerously on his tiptoes as Xie Lian gasps and laughs brightly.

    Then, he's laughing, so excited for tonight; a looming shadow at his feet, ready to swallow when time comes. For now, Xie Lian's smile is everything.

    He's dancing before he knows it, Xie Lian clapping along to the song and Eming is jumping on the counter, Rouye's jumping between Hua Cheng's wild feet.

    And Xie Lian watches how his small family comes together, Hua Cheng a beautiful being of sweeping black hair, a tender black eye and a lovely little smile that does things to Xie Lian.

    "San Lang," He thinks, giggling as Hua Cheng turns to pick up the pan of pancake, his hips wiggling as he comes around the counter to Xie LIan. "Thank you"

    Summary

    He’s just placing the last bucket under the drip by the back door when he hears the sound of the front door unlocking.

    “Gege, are you home?” Hua Cheng calls. Hua Cheng has a key to the house; Xie Lian had insisted on giving him the spare when Hua Cheng had installed the lock only days after meeting Xie Lian. Hua Cheng had refused for several more days, saying Xie Lian should give it to someone he trusted, not seeming to realize that that person was him.

    Hua Cheng should just let himself in, but instead he waits by the open door. Once, Xie Lian had pretended not to be home, just to see what would happen. Hua Cheng had closed the door, locked it again, and left, and Xie Lian had been left with an odd sense of bereavement.

    “San Lang!” he calls, emerging from the little room by the back door to greet Hua Cheng. He runs across the main room and skids to a stop in his stockinged feet just in front of Hua Cheng, unable to contain his smile. Hua Cheng smiles back and holds up his hand as though to steady Xie Lian. When he sees Xie Lian isn’t going to fall over, he drops it. Xie Lian feels a little bereft.

    Summary

    Xie Lian imagines Shi Qingxuan and He Xuan doing their intro like they always do, Shi Qingxuan talking with excitement and He Xuan pretending to be bored.

But Shi Qingxuan never mind that, he talks and moves enough for the both of them.
    Then, they would pretend they just receive an email and read Xie Lian's letter.
