    Summary

    Professor Wei Ying doesn't expect to overhear a bunch of his students discussing what a good match he'd make with Professor Lan, but one afternoon at the library that's exactly what happens.

    And now he gets to decide what to do with that information.

    Even if he isn't entirely sure which Professor Lan they meant.

    Summary

    “We hear that His Excellency might be married by summer’s end,” the merchant’s wife says and Wei Wuxian freezes, his heart in his throat. “The Gusu Lan sect has been buying enough red silk and brocade that the merchants in Caiyi can’t satisfy the demand.”

    He feels himself grow brittle inside, like a flick of a finger to his temple might make him shatter. His ears are ringing.

    “Who’s the lucky bride?” he asks despite himself. His tongue sticks to the roof of his mouth.

    Or: The story of a marriage.

    Summary

    “Ryuzo,” Jin said with an anxious glance up into the tree, “be careful. If you fall, you’ll break something.”

    “I won’t. I’m invincible.” Ryuzo hauled himself up another branch and stifled a squeak as his foot slipped, nearly tipping him out of the tree if not for a quick grab for another branch. Below, Jin cried out at the same time he did. “Almost there.”

    “Ryuzo!”

    “Stop yelling, or you’ll bring your father down on our heads,” Ryuzo muttered.

    Summary

    “He’ll live,” Lady Adachi Masako said as she emerged from the room, closing the shoji door behind her. As Ryuzo started forward, Masako held up a palm. “But he needs rest. As do you.”

    Ryuzo ran a palm over his face, shaky with exhaustion. He’d allowed one of Masako’s daughters-in-law to bandage his injuries, dressed now in borrowed clothes that’d belonged to Masako’s sons, too short at the wrists. “Thank you,” Ryuzo said.
