    Summary

    “We’re going home,” Zhou Zishu huffs when he pulls Wen Kexing’s arms over his shoulders, then hitches his legs around his waist. He hops in place to get a good grip under the bends of his knees, then makes sure his robe is covering as much of Wen Kexing as it can. “If you die before we get there, the first thing Shixiong will do when we see each other on Naihe Bridge is hit you.”

    Summary

    He's not sure how long he breathes for two people. The sky darkens around him into dusk. At some point he finds he's swayed forward and is gasping in the clean, crisp scent of Wen Kexing's hair. He rests his forehead against the roughness, nuzzling closer. He hadn't felt tired since he woke, until now.

    "If this is your way of settling your debt," he pants, though a mouthful of gray hair, "I don't accept this payment."

    The wind picks up. He gets another mouthful of hair, and spits that out too, inhaling. The wind sighs, sounding almost human. Robes rustle in its wake.

    "A-Xu," whispers Wen Kexing, not the wind, "would you forgive me that debt?"

    --

    Set after episode 36, with series spoilers. Wen Kexing and Zhou Zishu, and their journey down a mountain.

    Summary

    He reaches for Wen Kexing's hands; touching Wen Kexing has become as natural as breathing, or perhaps it's the other way around. Being with Wen Kexing means being alive, or maybe not something quite so all-consuming as being alive, but rather the many smaller intimacies that coalesce into a life: Wen Kexing is the click of chopsticks at a common table and the rustle of blankets in a shared bed.

    Wen Kexing's hands are cooler than normal. At first, Zhou Zishu attributes it to the chill of the room, but when he feels for a pulse in his wrist and finds nothing, his stomach curdles like souring milk.
