    Summary

    “They’re bitter,” he offers. “Ganyu eats them.”

    Barbatos’s eyes go round. “Raw?” he says, astonished. “My word.” He pauses, studying the qingxin in deep contemplation. Then he pops a petal into his mouth and immediately gags.

    Xiao concludes then and there that the Anemo Archon is an idiot. “I warned you,” he says, utterly unsympathetic.

    “That’s true!” Barbatos laughs. He runs a thumb over the bloom, but (thankfully) doesn’t try to eat any more. “I think it’ll grow on me,” he muses, then smiles, as if he’s said something clever.

    A selection of memories. Venti and Xiao, from the beginning to the end—and after.

    Summary

    Venti runs a claw over Xiao's bindings, pupils narrow and tension prickling the spines at the back of his neck. Fuck, fuck, Xiao swears in his head. He wasn't supposed to react like this.

    When Venti finally speaks, his voice shakes the ground beneath them. "Who did this to you?" he says, his voice low and dangerous.

    "D-don't you like it—" Xiao stammers.

    "—Who touched you?"

    Summary

    Xiao arrives in Mondstadt with one goal: to survive. To move on from the life that burned down around him, and to not make the same mistakes again.

    Then, he meets Zhongli. Tall, dark, and every inch of the dominant Xiao wants--Xiao craves. And Childe, the bronze haired loose cannon, who's submission is demanded by Zhongli alone.

    They're a package deal. And Xiao will ignore the flames to have them.

    Summary

    Such a tender heart, beneath it all. Morax wonders at it – that a creature so fundamentally gentle could survive something so fundamentally cruel.

    “In the fables of another world,” Morax murmurs, “the name Xiao is that of a spirit who encountered great hardship. He endured much suffering, as you have.” His thumb brushes beneath Alatus’s eye, catching the tear before it can fall. “Use this name from now on.”

    A story about love, devotion, and vulnerability, told in six parts. Or, five lessons Zhongli learns from Xiao during their thousands of years at each other's sides, and one lesson Xiao learns from him.
