    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?"

    --

    Set after episode 36, with series spoilers. Wen Kexing and Zhou Zishu, and their journey down a mountain.

    Summary

    “There you are,” Zhou Zishu said as he noticed a flash of white hidden high in the boughs of a tree. “Shidi, it’s going to rain soon. Let’s go back. I’ll buy you some hawthorn sweets on the way, all right?”

    “Go away.” Curled into a tight ball on a high branch, his white Siji Pavilion disciple robes muddied, Wen Kexing tensed up but didn’t move.

    Summary

    "This may sound crazy, but... do you know me? It seems like we should know each other and yet I can't place you in my life."

    Zhou Zishu opened his mouth ever-so-slightly to respond, but ultimately decided to remain silent.

    "It's just," Wen Kexing mused, "I think I'd remember a man as beautiful as you, and yet here you are. Sitting right in front of me. And everything in me tells me you know me, yet how could I not remember you?"

    "That would be the question, wouldn't it?" Zhou Zishu said despite himself.

    "Aha! So you do know me." A brilliant smile flashed across Wen Kexing's face. "I take it we are close?"

    "You guess incorrectly."

    Summary

    Zhou Zishu, suddenly aware that he’s staring, catches himself because what is he doing creeping at a random dad but also! Is he married? He must be! There are two kids! But where is the mom? the...other dad? Why does he care?

    He picks up his goods and walks to the parking lot only to see them again. They're 3 cars away! Zhou Zishu discreetly looks over and the little girl is already staring at him. He tries to smile sheepishly and the little girl’s mouth, in her cute purple overalls, goes “o” and suddenly grabs her baba's shoulders and points at Zhou Zishu.

    "Mama!"

    They all freeze.

     

    In which: The world didn't give her a mother? No problem! Independent toddler Ah-Xiang assigns one anyway.

    Summary

    Go back for Chengling, a voice in his dreams says. Go back for our foolish idiot of a student. He needs you. You need him. Go back.

    I needed you, Zishu answers. You offered to spend eternity with me on this mountain, eating only ice and living forever. So that's what I'm going to do.
