    Summary

    Shang Qinghua wasn't eager, not really. What he was, was greedy. When was he ever going to meet someone just the right combination of stern and mean and powerful and gorgeous again? Let alone get the chance to touch them? If this was the only shot he had, then…then he was going to play this out the way he wanted to. Just a little.

    Dreams were important! He knew that better than most.

    “…A lot of things out here can catch you off guard if you aren’t careful.”

    Summary

    “It is possible,” Hua Cheng began slowly, for once looking like a real person and not a god who had meticulously chosen a human suit in which to travel this petty and boring mortal world, “I may have lied a little, to my cohort. I may have told them, a few of them, not many, I was married.”

    “Okay,” Xie Lian said, assuming he was talking about his special someone.

    “To you.”

    “WHAT.”

    Or: After a meltdown goes viral and ruins his acting career, Xie Lian moves to LA. Unable to find work, he slips into a severe depression, until Shi Qingxuan hooks him up with a new roommate, an art student who has apparently been telling everyone they're married.

    Summary

    “I,” Xie Lian says. He’s breathless, dazed. Hua Cheng loves him like this—loves him in all ways, all the time, but certainly like this. However, there’s something else beneath Xie Lian’s watery eyes and ragged breaths. He swallows thickly, then one of his hands is moving along Hua Cheng’s arm to his chest. His fingers brush lightly over the skin there, skimming just above Hua Cheng’s right nipple, and his eye flutters closed at the sensation.

    And then, just as quickly as the feeling came, it disappears. He opens his eye, expecting to see Xie Lian drawing his hand away.

    Instead, Xie Lian’s hand is splayed across the left side of his chest. Between his pointer and middle fingers is the hole that never went away.

    “It’s grown,” Xie Lian says. “It’s still growing.”

    “Oh,” Hua Cheng says, because he doesn’t know what else to say. Of course, he already knows that the hole has grown. He’d spent an hour yesterday, while Xie Lian was peacefully dozing in his lap, trying to heal it.

    The Ghost King's body begins to rot. Xie Lian tries his best to figure out why.
