    Summary

    Wei Wuxian gets expelled from college and sent abroad in shame after getting caught up in a scandal. Lan Zhan follows him.

    ---

    “Look, you’ve upset Lan Zhan,” he said, reaching over to pinch Wen Qing’s shoulder. She smacked his hand away.

    “Good. Maybe now you’ll finally believe me when I say he’s in love with you."

    This time, Wei Wuxian made sure the pinch landed. “Be quiet,” he said, glancing up to confirm that Lan Zhan was out of earshot.

    “I’m serious, Wei Wuxian,” she said, and even though her revenge shoulder punch was unnecessarily hard, the look she gave him was lined with concern. “Watching you two pine after each other is getting unbearable. When are you going to stop flirting with strangers you don’t actually like and do something about it? You know he won’t.”

    Wei Wuxian pouted at her, but she was, as ever, impervious. “Violence is really unattractive, you know,” he said, rubbing his shoulder. He turned away before adding, more quietly, “And we’ve already talked about this. I can’t.”

    Summary

    Dying hurts. She’s grown up with stories, of course, legends and histories alike about the glorious deaths of heroes. They’re often on battlefields like this, but no one mentions the chaos or the pain.

    Lying in the ashes of clan members and unquiet spirits alike, Yanli thinks that was a pretty big oversight.

    Her back burns with red-hot agony, and her chest is a cavity of pain so deep it’s almost numb. Already, the screams are blurring, smudging like smoke, like the black ribbons coiling off and around her little brother. Her eyes slip shut and the black swallows her.

    Summary

    Flushing in embarrassment, Wei Ying hurries over to A-Yuan and crouches to place his hands on his shoulders. “A-Yuan, that’s enough,” he says. “Sorry, Lan Zhan, he used to go to a different bookstore where they host regular storytimes, I think he thinks you’re the designated storyteller for the day—”

    He gets to his feet, holding A-Yuan at his hip, and glances up to look at Lan Zhan. It’s an awful, terrible, horrible mistake. This close, every detail of his face is utterly inescapable.

    “Story time,” says A-Yuan, lower lip wobbling dangerously.

    Wei Ying glances around, finding people staring curiously at the scene unfolding before them. “A-Yuan,” he hisses urgently. “We need to go. I’ll tell you a story on the way home, okay?”

    “Do you really need to go?”

    Wei Ying starts at Lan Zhan’s voice. He’s still looking steadily at him, an unreadable expression in his eyes.

    (Seven years after running away from home to pursue a story that would expose one of the biggest media scandals in recent years, Wei Ying runs into the last person he’s expecting to see at a quaint, forgotten bookstore he hasn’t set foot in for a very long time.)
