    Summary

    It wasn’t so much a pattern as a regular occurrence: the three of them in the staff bathroom, after-hours. It was a dynamic that came naturally: Xiao Xingchen and his smile; Song Lan’s vague disgust; Xue Yang, always leaking. But then Xiao Xingchen had invited him to their home and it suddenly felt very domestic: Xue Yang, being fucked; Xue Yang, mooching off dinner; Xue Yang, crashing overnight on evenings when he didn’t want to go back to his shitty apartment.

    And so Xue Yang should have seen it coming. The dinner invitation. The Michelin starred restaurant. Song Lan, undercut so closely shaved that his scalp looked Saharan. Strong, mumbling Song Lan. Song Lan, asking him what exactly Xiao Xingchen saw in Xue Yang. What exactly.
    -
    Or: Xiao Xingchen and Song Lan take in Xue Yang as a third. Song Lan and Xue Yang don't get along. Chaos and emotional growth ensue.

    Summary

    "My, my, would you look at this tragic disguise." Du Pusa grins, showing her teeth. "How you've let yourself go, my dear Yan Gui."

    Qianqiao kicks Du Pusa's feet out from under her, flipping her assailant over her shoulder. A flurry of sheer robes and lethal knives. A grunt of pain when Qianqiao slams her into the ground, pins her with a knee on her abdomen, forearm bearing down on Du Pusa's chest.

    "When I want a whore's opinion on my looks," Qianqiao says pleasantly, "I'll take myself to the nearest brothel and ask."

    Summary

    “Tell me,” Lan Zhan hums, hands on her thighs. The laugh in her voice feels suddenly cold, mocking. Wei Ying jerks away.

    “It’s not funny,” she mutters, sliding back a little; she misses Lan Zhan’s warmth but doesn’t think she’s ever wanted to be touched less, stomach churning in humiliation.

    “Wei Ying?” Lan Zhan sits up, alarmed. The lust and humor is gone from her voice; Wei Ying is very suddenly ashamed of that, too.

    Summary

    "What does my beloved have in this head of his?” he asked. "You’re standing here so quietly. What are you thinking about?” 

    "Marriage," Zhou Zishu said. He took a drink from the liquor pot in his right hand.

    "And what are your thoughts?"

    Zhou Zishu raised his free arm out to the large and bustling crowd, the sweet delicacies placed on the low dark wood tables set up around the courtyard, and the glittering decorations that surrounded them, the manor itself bejeweled and red as a blushing bride.

    "Expensive," he concluded.

    -

    Chengling gets married. Zhou Zishu contemplates the price he's willing to pay for marriage and finds the answer has been with him all along.
