    一蓮托生
    Common destiny

    Originally a Buddhist expression referring to all life being reborn on the same lotus, the phrase was later romanticized in double-suicide stories where two lovers wish to be reunited in paradise. The modern colloquial meaning, though, is to share the same fate through good or ill – e.g. "You and I are in the same boat, so if we're going down, we're going down together."

    Summary

    Edward grabs Marcoh’s arm and says, “That stone – what can it heal, exactly?”

    The old man’s eyebrows rise to his forehead, and he looks like he already knows the answer when he goes, “Why do you ask, Edward?”

    There's no metallic footsteps so there’s no way Al’s close enough to hear them. “I’m sick,” he admits after another moment of deliberation.

    Summary

    When he finally picks up, Maes sounds far too cheery. “Heya, Roy! Congratulations on last night!”

    Oh god.

    What has he heard?

    “I did not have sex with him, Maes.”

    On the other line, Hughes is perfectly silent for at least one minute… then, slowly, says “I feel like we are talking about two very different things.”
