    Summary

    Zhou Zishu takes the pipe, checks that the ember is still alive, and sets it in his mouth. When he sucks the smoke into his mouth, he can only just barely perceive the pungent herbal scent of it, like passing someone in the street who had smoked hours before. But it feels the same as it always has, hot and dry in the back of his throat. He holds it in his lungs, offers the pipe to Wen Kexing. Exhales slowly through his nose.

    On the road to Longyuan Pavilion.

    This is not the first time they've lain together, but it is the first time Zhou Zishu has been able to be completely unclothed.

    But that’s not why he waits for Zhou Zishu. And really, at this point, it’s more like Zhou Zishu is waiting for him.

    Summary

    "It couldn't have waited like, five minutes?"

    "With our luck? I'm amazed it didn't start the moment we got off the train."

    "Yeah, yeah. You've got the keys, right?"

    "Mm. Somewhere."

    "Jon."

    It's raining when they arrive. Jon takes a moment to compartmentalize.

    Summary

    "Jon, this isn't—you know you're awake right now, right?"
    Jon laughs, low and mirthless.
    "No, I'm not."
    You—you are, though. This is real, this isn't a dream." Martin gives a small, nervous laugh. "I—I know it feels a bit like one, after everything, but—"
    "Yes, it is," Jon says, with absolute certainty. "This is a dream. It has to be."
    "Why?"
    Jon looks at Martin then, with such sadness and longing in his eyes that Martin can barely stand to hold his gaze. "I wouldn't be here with you otherwise."

    --

    Martin knows that they can't stay here at Upton, that being disconnected from the Eye is affecting Jon. But one more night, he thinks--just one more night can't hurt.

    He's wrong.
