    Summary

    He decides to watch back, and takes to monitoring every tiny movement and expression Ding Rong makes when he thinks no one is paying him any mind.

    It is a difficult game for Wang Zhi to play with himself when he so frequently has other priorities, and when Ding Rong is so often already staring at Wang Zhi when he checks. Even when that happens, though, Wang Zhi does not look away. Sometimes, he lifts an eyebrow, and other times, he gives no reaction at all and waits for Ding Rong to glance away first.

    You watch me, he thinks, and I’ll watch you.

    Summary

    “What was that for?” Ding Rong says, blunt and unafraid to speak his mind. He’s always this way—when they’re alone, anyway.

    Everything is different when they’re alone.

    “I wanted to,” Wang Zhi says, tongue feeling heavy in his mouth. He takes a step back, face burning under Ding Rong’s gaze. “You looked so pitiful.”

    Summary

    It had been winter when, while tying Wang Zhi’s cloak, Ding Rong’s hands had fumbled and Wang Zhi’s world had given a tiny jolt.

    Summary

    It’s the uncertainty that makes Ding Rong’s stomach tighten, the uncertainty that helps him to sober up as the carriage sways. Though the life of an imperial servant—particularly one who works at the Western Depot—is rife with the unknown, Ding Rong has never been particularly fond of it. Sometimes, he thinks he would rather know that a situation will turn out for the worse than stake his hopes on an unpredictable future.

    Maybe that’s also the mark of an imperial servant: a lack of hope.

    And yet.

    Summary

    It’s kind of a revelation to be able to touch each other in this way, and to feel no guilt for enjoying it.
