    Summary

    So distracted is Xie Lian that he almost misses the look Hua Cheng gives him as possessive fingers settle on his waist. “Bored yet, gege?” he croons.

    Far from it; Xie Lian shivers at the patterns being traced on his skin. His body flashes hot, but Hua Cheng’s palms are cold, and it’s this dizzying contrast that coaxes his tongue loose. “I like being here with you,” he says, voice edging on a breath.

    There’s no wind but the curtains flutter. The lantern that illuminates the booth casts an atmospheric red hue; it makes Hua Cheng seem demonic—makes him look like the lord that he is.

    Summary

    “I’m sorry Gege, I’m just a bit surprised. Let me make sure I am understanding this correctly,” he said, taking half a step forward. “You are real and also asleep. I am also real, and not a figment of your imagination. We are both real, and asleep, and dreaming the same dream right now.”

    Xie Lian shrugged. “It looks like it.”

    When Xie Lian gets hit by a curse, he winds up sharing his dreams with a certain ghost king who would very much like to know where he is in real life.

    Summary

    Deep in the heart of the city of ghosts, a chisel breaks stone. Alone in the candlelit studio, Hua Cheng bows over the remaining boot and chips away slivers of veined marble. The sculpture is nearly finished, has been for weeks. The details he cuts into the lower foot now are so fine as to be invisible if viewed from any further away than a single step.

    Above it, ornate robes are swept back on a frozen wind and a sword halfway from its sheath cuts across the sculpture’s waist. With its weight perched on the front foot as if a breath away from leaping and the candelight rosy across its cheeks and brow, the sculpture looks as if it is only a heartbeat from life. Except—

    Hua Cheng takes a step back, tilting his head to survey his creation from toe to brow.

    A blank face stares down.

    •••
    Hua Cheng emerges from Mt. Tong’lu looking for someone he cannot name, cannot place, cannot picture. For centuries, he chases fragments of memory—until he stumbles upon a cultivator in white who might be the answer to the questions he has carried for eight hundred years.

    Summary

    Xie Lian had never traveled in his dreams before now. Never opened his eyes and found a different bedroom, different people, a different life. But he had heard of this curse long ago. A curse about people who could glimpse opportunities, other lives. Their souls would travel as they slept.

    The only person he had known affected by it was a man whose wife had died. In his dreams, he saw her a thousand times, a thousand worlds where she had lived, and woke up in the world where she had not. Perhaps Xie Lian, too, had a traveler’s soul now, seeking out his Hua Cheng while he waited.

    But Xie Lian was not grieving. He was only waiting until Hua Cheng was back and he would have no need for dreams.
