    Summary

    With absolutely no warning or preamble, Hua Cheng says this: “You love me.”

    Xie Lian stares. And stares. And stares. And then he screeches; he’s sort of freaking out right now. “S-San Lang!” he wails, immediately turning around so that he’s facing the window instead.

    Because Hua Cheng has no shame, because Hua Cheng wants to see him flustered, he naturally repeats the sentence—and when he speaks again, his voice comes from just over Xie Lian’s shoulder and his fingers have wrapped themselves around Xie Lian’s wrist. “You love me,” he whispers in awe, as if stunned by the admission.

    The force of Xie Lian’s ensuing blush could melt through steel.

    Summary

    “Xie Lian?” the doctor asks.

    Xie Lian had thought it safe enough to use his name after this many years, five hundred past the death of Xianle, but he questions that belief as her brow furrows.

    “Ah,” he says, uncertain how to proceed but certain that changing it now would only raise her suspicions. “Yes?”

    “Like the shrine?”

    •••

    After a mishap helping a village get rid of a malevolent ghost, Xie Lian stumbles upon a mysterious shrine and its keeper and discovers his most devoted believer in the last place he'd ever think to look.

    Summary

    Unfortunately, Xie Lian must get the hint Feng Xin’s intentions are less than friendly, because when Feng Xin asks for a picture, he receives an image of that CEO guy he kept seeing everywhere on the Google search results.

    And, in the fashion of a preteen girl parading her favourite celebrity idol as her boyfriend, Xie Lian specifically shows him a picture of that Hua Cheng in sweatpants and a T-shirt. As if under the assumption Feng Xin is stupid enough to fall for the deception. From what obscure corner of the Internet did Xie Lian even get that image, anyway?

    In which no one believes Xie Lian is dating a billionaire CEO, even though he really, really is.
