    Summary

    For the first time since they started dating, Wen Kexing went on a business trip, leaving Zhou Zishu at home, looking after Wen Kexing's herb garden and sourdough starter. In the foreign country that was the kitchen of his own home, Zhou Zishu took care of the things that Wen Kexing cared for.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    There was an uncharacteristic beat of silence from the other end, sparkling with static. After some time, Wen Kexing laughed into the phone, low and slow. “My dear Ah Xu,” he chuckled. “I was asking about how you are doing.”

    Summary

    Zhou Zishu snatches the jar from his playful touch and ignores his puppy look to refill only his cup before putting it far out of his reach. “Pardon this inexperienced one,” he replies, “but I don’t think I’ve been flirting with you, Lao Wen.”

    At this, Wen Kexing laughs, delighted. “Inexperienced one,” he echoes, in a crude mockery of Zhou Zishu’s voice. “And here I thought you’d never lie to me, A-Xu.”

    “Lao Wen,” he begins, voice carefully composed. “If you wish to poke a rabid dog, why are you so surprised when the dog bites back?”

    Summary

    After Wen Kexing has whined the last in a long string of particularly embarrassing endearments, Zhou Zishu turns and flicks a pebble at him.
    "Enough," he says. "If we stop here, we won't reach town by nightfall." Then he steps forward and lifts Wen Kexing's chin with one finger, looking directly into his eyes. "Does my wife want to be taken care of on the forest floor, or in a proper bed?"
    Wen Kexing, apparently entirely revitalized, immediately grins. "Anywhere, anywhere! I'm overjoyed to be of service wherever my lord wants me."
    "You'd better be," murmurs Zhou Zishu, and then laughs when Wen Kexing stumbles.

    "A-Xu is so generous," says Wen Kexing.

    "A-Xu is so tired," Zhou Zishu informs him.

    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?"

    Bookmarker's Notes

    "Shut up." He follows Wen Kexing's gaze to where Ye Baiyi sits cross-legged, back to an icy wall. There's a band of white in his hair as thick as Zhou Zishu's fingers put together. With his sleeves draped over his knees, he seems sculpted from snow, his edges softly blending. "Why are young people both loud and stupid? Just choose one."

    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.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    Wen Kexing’s head snapped up. “A-Xu,” he said. “It really is you, isn’t it. Ah, I knew it would really piss you off.”

    “‘Piss me off’?” demanded Zhou Zishu. “Tell me, Lao Wen, do you think ‘pissed off’ even begins to cover how angry I am with you?”
