    Summary

    [How dare he-?

    Wu Ming takes an unsteady step back, his eye unseeing, grits his teeth and hurtles himself backward over the edge without a second thought, head blissfully empty in that split moment.

    It doesn’t last: The wind thunders in his ears, whipping his unkempt, loose hair all around him like frantically beating wings, and the growing pressure crushes his chest mercilessly. He desperately clings to that image of an altar amidst a sea of blood and fire, cradles it close and lets the reminder of resentment and rage anchor him as he braces for the pain.

    There is none.

    Instead of shattering into pieces in maddening agony, there are arms – one around his back, wedged between his elbow and side, and the other underneath his knees, keeping him together. His breath hitches in surprise and the energy coursing through him, both the frost and the slick warmth, flutters erratically.

    Someone caught him.]

    _______

    When Wu Ming ascends and, on the verge of dispersion, tries to throw himself right back into Mount Tong'lu, someone unexpected catches him. Not that he minds, in hindsight. (Or: Wu Ming didn't expect someone else out there to be yearning like him.)

    Summary

    Many years ago, Hua Cheng had met a boy at an ice rink. A boy who had given him a pair of skates he had outgrown, a boy who had taught him how to skate, who had encouraged him when no one else had even noticed he existed. The boy on the ice had grown to become the national champion, winning world championships and Olympic medals. He’d been the star of the figure skating world - until after a doping scandal he had disappeared. 

    Three years later, Hua Cheng had never expected to find him here.

    What on earth was Xie Lian doing at the Calamities' rink?

    Summary

    Summary

    “I found these thirty-six questions that are supposed to make two strangers fall in love with each other. How do you think it would work on best friends?”

    Xie Lian didn’t know whether to laugh or to cry. He’d already been in love with Hua Cheng for years now. The game would be terribly rigged.

    “Wouldn’t that mean San Lang would fall for me too?”

    Hua Cheng leaned back to shrug. “It’s just a game.”
