    Summary

    He Xuan couldn’t take it any more. “Why haven’t you left yet?”

    Hua Cheng met his glare with utter seriousness. “Because gege is right. Something is wrong.”

    At last, He Xuan snapped. “Something’s wrong? Something’s wrong!? Something??! What about the fact that I’m still here? It’s been a year”—he pointed accusingly at Hua Cheng—“and a HALF! I did what I had to do, I EARNED MY DEATH, AND SOMEHOW I’M”—he kicked the boulder, causing a section to crumble away and tumble down the hill in a shower of rubble—“STILL”—he kicked again and the rock cracked beneath him so he fell too. He jumped back up, though not as gracefully as Hua Cheng, and stalked over to the ghost king, shoving him back with all the strength he could muster—“HERE!”

    * * *
    He Xuan made himself into a Supreme to kill the god who had stolen his fate. But when it's over, he finds himself still tethered to existence.

    Why?

    (A love story inspired by long discussions about the nature of love, hualian, and the fundamental truth that no one, unless he was hopelessly in love with them, could possibly get away with owing Hua Cheng so much money for so long. Read to ascend.)

    Summary

    “You can touch me, you know. You won’t hurt me.”

    “I’m trying not to,” Yohan says, and then his eyes widen and he freezes, as if he hadn’t meant to say it out loud.

    Too late, thinks Gaon. I see you.

    Summary

    Of course. It's all coming together now. No wonder the man doesn't have a taste palate. His taste buds have been fried by Ms Ji's dreadful cooking. What a plot twist. A housemaid that can't cook? How did Gaon miss this?

    Or the one where Gaon woos his way into Yohan's life one meal at a time.
