    Summary

    His discovery of hanguangjun’s videos is just one of those strange accidents of fate, a quirk of the YouTube algorithms, a case of leaving random videos to play for too long while he dozed—or tried to—desperate for any relief from the sounds of unfamiliar cities filling his ears as he fought jetlag in London, Milan, Sydney, Los Angeles. In his case, he’d spent a lot of time listening to the most random shit imaginable: ten hour loops of the U.S.S. Enterprise, coffee shop chatter, endless fucking rain, weird white noise hums and bleeps.

    Wei Ying is a model; Lan Zhan posts art-themed ASMR videos on YouTube. They run into one another on a street in New York City.

    Summary

    Inquiry was taking the country by storm. People were fascinated by the true crime podcast: its approach to the Yiling Incident; the way it incorporated folklore and myth into its structure; the questions it raised.

    Wei Ying was more alarmed than fascinated, and he had some questions of his own:

    Who was Hanguang-jun? Why was Hanguang-jun covering an incident that had been laid to rest for over six years?

    And would Hanguang-jun identify him as central to the entire thing?

    Summary

    Lan Zhan knows that face. It's Wei Ying.

    His head is thrown back, eyes closed, baring a long line of throat interrupted only by his adam's apple. He's pulling the mic stand towards him as he belts out a high note, long and piercing, the crowd screaming along with him. He cuts it off and snaps his eyes open – the camera catches it head on and for a single breath, it's almost as if he's looking straight at Lan Zhan.

    Summary

    “Zhan-jie,” Wei Ying whines, and Lan Zhan is appalled to realize that the sound sends a shiver down her spine. She wants to shut Wei Ying’s stupid mouth. She wants to tie Wei Ying’s hands behind her back and tell her exactly what she is and is not allowed to do. She. Hm.

    “Explain,” Lan Zhan commands her, voice going dark and heavy, and the startled look that Wei Ying gives her sends another zip through each and every one of Lan Zhan’s nerve endings.

    Hm, Lan Zhan thinks, again.

    “Well,” Wei Ying mumbles, darting glances at Lan Zhan, “well, the thing is, Baby sort of — it’s not her fault, but she, when she ran away, she sort of. She, uh. Well, she had a passenger.”

    “A passenger.”

    “The dinosaur took my nephew,” Wei Ying says, and Lan Zhan lays her forehead against the wheel and ignores the horn as it sounds.

    Summary

    “Uh, I...” Wei Ying said. She looked down at the rowing machine’s handles, then back to her gym crush. “How is it supposed to -?”

    Her gym crush’s lips thinned for a second. Like it was annoying to her to have to explain the shit she’d gone out of her way to say. Or like she saw right through Wei Ying and her extremely obvious effort to keep her talking.

    “Hold the handles, not the cables,” Wei Ying’s gym crush said.

    Wei Ying tilted her head, feeling her ponytail sweep across her arched back, and asked, “... show me?”
