    Summary

    It's been three days since Zhou Zishu changed. Its such a small difference, Qin Jiuxiao knows its not even noticeable, not to the vice commanders that follow his shixiong, not to that insufferable Prince Jin. But he can tell, he most definitely can feel the difference. There's something in his eyes now, for the first time in years, his gaze look clear. All these recent years they were clouded by fog, a haze that's gone now.

    Luo Fumeng has watched over the disaster that has been Wen Kexings life for a while now. Has seen the boy cover his grief and pain with lies and deceptions in a large tangled web. He's broken inside, but he hasn't given up on fighting yet. Wen Kexing burns with the need for revenge, he uses his anger to keep himself together even as his mind frays at the edges. She can tell the exact moment when his eyes change. One day he wakes, and something has shattered in them entirely. All the rage gone hollow. She doesn't know what happened, but it's causing him to fall apart.

    Summary

    “You can go on, if you want,” he said when Zhou Zishu stopped for breath. “Scold and punish me for seven years, then I will scold you for the next seven, and then we’ll have to find something else to do.”

    The thought of years took any other words out of his mouth. Zhou Zishu had gotten used to measuring time in thimblefuls. A New Year’s day, a drift of peach blossoms blown off the trees: each one, perhaps, the last he would see. There wasn’t a container in his mind big enough to hold years, decades, centuries.

    Summary

    “Your thoughts?” Crown Prince Helian Yi asked as Zhou Zishu read through the missive, blinked, and reread it more carefully. They sat in the Prince’s private study, closed away from the warm night by layers of steel and gilded lacquer, the air heavy with the ill-tainted humidity of a promised storm.

    “Is this a joke?”

    “I wish it were—I’m in need of a laugh.” Helian Yi began to pour himself tea and paused as Zishu reached over to do it for him. Zishu set the offending scroll down on the carved table as they drank, frowning to himself. Thinking through the implications for the next week, the month, the year, ten years.

    Summary

    Wen Kexing breathes in A-Xu’s scent and thinks, this is enough. This will have to be enough.

    (It makes him sick, how much he wants this. He feels like he is in a fever dream, and one day when he wakes, this fantasy they created will crumble like dust in the wind.)
