The prison life wasn't that tough if you were one to commit a petty crime. Get sentenced for three months, at most a year and you're free to go. Survive some cold showers, share a room with some thieves, swallow down the bland food quickly. The guards were mostly nice on that side of prison as well.
But if you're an unlucky one like Lan Wangji, THE Hanguang-jun, and you end up on the other side of prison, good luck surviving. Sharing a cell with a kidnapper, a sex offender and a murderer, he already was bound to have a hard few years following ahead. The worst of all though, if you didn't count the other guards who clearly went against some laws here and there, was the guard in charge of his prison block, Wei Wuxian. The devilish man sent shudders down Lan Wanji's spine each time they locked eyes.
Whenever he heard those heavy footsteps walking down the corridor, a familiar tune being whistled, and a big bundle of keys being twirled around, Lan Wangji pretended to be deep asleep. He's been in this section for three days, had 16 more years to go, but he already wished he had just been given the death sentence instead.
