    Summary

    Sometimes reflections showed Lan Zhan glimpses of another life.

    It had been happening for as long as he could remember. Usually—at least at the start, back when he was learning to brush his own teeth, and still needed a stool to stand on to reach the sink—he would see the boy in the bathroom mirror. In the very beginning, he had parents with him...something that Lan Zhan and his brother did not have in their uncle's quiet home. Lan Zhan remembers watching them, that happy family, grinning at each other in the mirror, laughing as they poked the corners of each other's mouths to stretch those smiles even wider. It all looked very silly.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    Sometimes, when the boy was alone, Lan Zhan saw him pause, saw something in him shift and settle. The boy would stare into the mirror, so focused and intent, that it was almost as if he could see Lan Zhan watching him...although his gaze never quite locked on to Lan Zhan's. The boy would study his own reflection and smile: little smiles, big smiles, full blown grins that scrunched up his eyes and showed his teeth. And then he would let the smiles fade and stare a moment longer, searching for something. He always, always, always put on a smile before whirling away and running off. Every time Lan Zhan witnessed this, he felt like an intruder. He never looked away, however.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    Jiang Cheng’s solemn duty as his uncle is to eyeball him until he catches Sizhui out in something, and then to either tell his fathers while editorializing in the most mournful possible tones about the degeneracy of today’s youth and how he himself would never have allowed his own charge to get away with such nonsense, or else to hold it over Sizhui’s head and use it as leverage to extract a promise of better behavior or future favors. This is the true meaning of family.
