    Summary

    Zhou Zishu is unable to ignore the clamminess of his skin or the ache of his hips where they’re pressed to the bed. He swallows, tongue rancid. Raising his chin under Wen Kexing’s scrutiny, he quietly orders, “Tend to your husband.”

    Wen Kexing exhales. His eyes crinkle. “Your feet won’t touch the ground.”

    Summary

    He couldn’t find anything in Wen Kexing’s body that should be keeping him from waking; it stood to reason that it was his mind that was the problem. Zhou Zishu probably knew Wen Kexing’s mind as well as anyone else alive or dead, and he doubted it was straightforward. So he read about the techniques of Healer Valley, and held Wen Kexing’s wrist or his hand or his cool cheek. The prevailing theory was that the best way to settle a person’s mind for them was in dreams. After all, wasn’t it dreams that told the truth when nothing else would?

    Zhou Zishu wasn’t sure that was true. And he didn’t imagine that Wen Kexing would appreciate having his secrets dragged into the light that way. But frankly it was his own fault; it wasn’t as though he’d left Zhou Zishu any choice. If Wen Kexing would only wake up, he would welcome his complaints.

    Summary

    Zhou Zishu watched him and forgot—everything, all the world’s greed and madness, the debts of blood and grace. The world dimmed around them. Wen Kexing was Zhen Yan was Shidi was here. A wrongness, settled; deviated qi returning to true.

    Of paths, and the choosing thereof, all consequences be damned. A soft interlude. Spoilers for episode 27.

    Summary

    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.
