    Summary

    ‘You think me selfish,’ Lan Xichen says, still avoiding his eyes.

    In the following pause Nie Huaisang seriously wonders whether Lan Xichen is about to snap, grab Shuòyuè and take his head clean off. He gets to his feet, and braces himself.

    Lan Xichen opens the doors. The effort seems to pain him, like he has aged, or the doors are heavy. ‘You are right.’

    It’s barely a whisper, strained so thin it has holes in it.

    Nie Huaisang thinks he might have misheard — overwhelmed by the loud, furious beating of his own heart — until Lan Xichen repeats, ‘You are right.’

    Summary

    A piece of paper is wedged between the last few rolls of the fabric. The handwriting is small and cramped but unmistakable in its elegance: Jin Zixun has laid a trap for you at Qiongqi Pass.

    (Or: Nie Huaisang disappears.)

    Summary

    It had always been something of a behind-closed-doors debate – a chicken-and-the-egg problem, what came first, what was the cause and what was the symptom.

    Was the Nie sect’s atypical cultivation method the reason behind the notorious Nie temper? Or were they born with the temper, and the cultivation method merely built upon that? Which one was the reason for their clan’s tendency towards early qi deviations?

    Nie Huaisang usually threw his money on the “blame the cultivation style”, almost entirely for the sake of pissing off his brother.

    He was starting to think, though, that he’d been wrong.
