    Summary

    Thirty-year cherry magic - the most awkwardly translated spontaneously-occurring curse Jiang Cheng knows of - is much, much more common in Japan. And even there, it’s pretty rare - supposedly, something like only half of one percent of virgins wake up on their thirtieth birthdays to find themselves newly psychic.

    So while Jiang Cheng carries many of the risk factors (male, stressful work environment, distinctly embarrassed by his own virginity, all of that), he never really considered the possibility that it would happen to him.

    Summary

    Wei Ying's normal PT is Wen Qing, and he's definitely never wanted to kiss her on the mouth.

    “Hello,” says the person Wei Ying’s praying is the PT, because you can’t just ask normal people to kill you. “Can I help you?” 

    “Please fix my legs,” Wei Ying says, not very helpfully, and sags against the doorframe in a way that is very cool and not at all helpless.

    Summary

    “Oh,” says Wei Ying, “oh,” when he sees the look in Lan Zhan’s eyes: dark, heavy, greedy. Like he could crowd Wei Ying against the wall and swallow him. One bite, no mess. Only blood in Lan Zhan’s mouth. “You’re hungry,” he says, dumbly, and sets his bottle down on the table. “Lan Zhan, sweetheart, you’re supposed to tell me.”

    “Then,” says Lan Zhan. His tongue darts out to lick his lips, a wet glint. “I am telling you.”

    Summary

    “She was going to kiss me,” Wei Ying says, muffled, into his hands.

    Lan Zhan makes sure he keeps his breaths even. “Hm,” he says. Wei Ying looks up at him, wild: a little tipsy, perhaps. Confused, in a panic. His mouth is red like he’s been kissed—he hasn’t. He’s a lip biter, has a habit of picking at his dry lips, the winter sores at the corner of his mouth. It drives Lan Zhan to madness. He dreams of Wei Ying’s puffy mouth, often, sometimes with the real Wei Ying in a sleeping bag on the floor next to his bed. On mornings like those he wakes up in a cloud of embarrassment—hobbling to the bathroom at dawn, running a loud shower to hide the sounds. Wei Ying sleeps on.

    “How do I—” Wei Ying starts, stops. He then lets out a single laugh, another. He says: “Oh my god. How do I kiss? Lan Zhan, how do I kiss?”

    Or: Wei Ying has a girlfriend now. Wei Ying doesn't want his best friend to lag behind.

    Summary

    Wangji risks a glance across the aisle; Wei Ying’s gaze is tilted down to his book, a model of diligence. But he’s smiling as he writes, and when his eyes flick over to Wangji’s, just for a second, they’re alight with something beautiful.

    This is love, Wangji realizes, right then. This is what it feels like. It's happening afresh even as it dawns on him.

    He copies the next line wrong, and the next.
