"You're like the Sun” Kassim said once, brows furrowed in deep concentration.
„Who are you, then?” Alibaba asked in return. He didn’t mind the unintelligible answer; Kassim was just like that, so he learned to identify the different kinds of hmphs and other sounds pretty quickly.
The answer to Alibaba’s question doesn’t come in his next life, neither it does in the one following.
The tilt of Childe's lips upwards was self-assured; cocky and smug in a way that made Zhongli want to lean in and kiss it.
Maybe one day.
"Tell me about the glaze lilies."
Zhongli blinked. "Glaze lilies? Why?"
Childe glanced at him out of the corner of his eye. "You've always seemed quite fond of them, and I want to know why. In fact, you seem to have some strange fascination with flowers in general."
Zhongli let his gaze fall onto to the cobalt flowers in question. "It's really not as much of a mystery as you make it seem. They're lovely to look at, and I appreciate the symbolism associated with them. Even if they don't actually mean anything at all, people have interpreted their petals and their fragrance and their colors to mean something."
"So what exactly do glaze lilies mean?"
aka, the one where Zhongli speaks in flowers and Childe is more than a little whipped.
“They say if you pray to Celestia, they’ll give you your heart’s desire.”
Morax blinks, and asks, “Then why doesn’t everyone pray for it? For what they wish?”
Guizhong sighs. “Because they’ll take away something of equal worth from you, and you’ll most likely die, or waste away forever in the lonely depths of the world.”
This is how it goes: 500 years ago, Zhongli makes a Faustian deal with Celestia and everything falls apart.
In exchange for the freedom of the burden of being an archon, Zhongli is cursed to be forgotten by everyone he meets; the geo archon is erased from history, nobody knows what the dragon statues mean, and the element geo is considered cursed.
And so, Zhongli drifts in the world, unable to fade or be remembered, until he meets Ajax.
