    Summary

    Inside the room he pulls the drapes open and stares out at the white, endless mountains. They’ve turned to indistinct clouds behind the veil of windbourne snow. Insubstantial and enormous, they drift behind mist. The slopes will be perfect, this afternoon and tomorrow. There’ll be deposits of fresh powder, bumps and drifts, exhilarating and tricky and fun. The mountain’s trying to play a game with us, his grandfather used to say. It was only right to enjoy it, when you’d gotten a gift like that.

    Baiyi pulls the armchair back up to the window. Finds the bottle of whiskey where he left it, by the sink. Takes a swig, and props his feet up, and settles in to watch the snow falling.

    Summary

    “You were watching me,” the kid says, in a soft colorless voice. It could be a threat if it wanted to be, easily, but in that tone it’s just a statement of fact.

    “Yeah, I’m sure it’s the first time anyone’s ever looked at you,” Baiyi says. He sips his drink. “You must not get any attention in that outfit.”

    The corner of the kid’s red mouth quirks up.

    “I’m sure you get attention in those,” he says.

    Summary

    Ye Baiyi had a plan. After washing his hands of Wen Kexing and Zhou Zishu, he was going to swing by the mountain to see if those two idiots succeeded in opening the treasury then go from town to town, eating and drinking his fill (he is never full) until his long awaited death grasped his old, ornery heart and freed him from this prison. Simple, foolproof.

    But instead of sitting in a warm restaurant and drinking it dry, he’s holed up inside a shabby safehouse on the side of the mountain with a trembling, wounded scorpion who seems determined to die.

    Ye Baiyi allows himself a long suffering sigh. He’s earned the right.

    ----

    Ye Baiyi saves Xie'er's life on a whim, sending the two broken souls down a long road toward healing, new beginnings, and love.

    Summary

    Ed wakes up in the sewers with very little recollection of how he got there, wearing seriously boring clothes. It's… probably going to be fine.
