    Summary

    “Mum, the fact that Lydia was the first of us to end up barefoot and pregnant is honestly a source of continual surprise to me.” // As it turns out, Mary Bennet’s internal checklist to Being a Good Person—go to medical school; join Médecins Sans Frontières; save lives—is a somewhat oversimplification of matters.

    Summary

    The man standing over him has eyes like knives, sharp and cold and black.

    “There are no masks allowed in the Ghost Fortress, Heavenly Official,” he says. His voice is polite, but it too contains knives.

    Hua Cheng can appreciate that. A blade is a blade is a blade. Sheathed or pressed to one’s neck, it is still just as sharp. There is no use pretending it is anything otherwise.

    The man in front of him is a blade held up to Hua Cheng’s heart, though perhaps he does not know it yet.

    Summary

    It is a weird thing to wake up and realise that for the first time in 800 years, you are no longer in love. Hua Cheng felt it even before he opened his eyes, could taste it in the back of his throat. Even the air around him felt different: stale, and with a strange odour to it. With his eyes still closed, he took stock of his other mental facilities, and it all came back in order, except—

     

     

     

     

    Except that for the first time in 800 years, he thinks of Xie Lian and feels nothing.

     

    (in which Hua Cheng's devotion gets stolen, and no one is happy about it.)

    Summary

    Mr. Chu is very different from most of the other adults that Paul has met. He doesn’t really get him. And it doesn’t help that Mr. Chu talks a lot less than Ellie, which makes him even more confusing. But he’s nice and he buys mince and sausage and he’s Ellie’s dad and he doesn’t seem to mind Paul being around so really, that’s all Paul needs.

    ---

    Of all people, Paul would understand that food is also a language of love.

    Summary

    Paul isn't good with words.

    And even though words don’t always work for him, (they just… they just don’t go together sometimes. Logically, you say the words and the words mean what they mean. But sometimes people talk and they mean more than their words and it’s like he’s stuck doing addition while everyone else is doing multiplication.) there is more than one way to talk.
