Chapter Text

"I'm sorry."


This is so embarrassing.

"I said I'm sorry. For insulting your shijie."

After a very awkward pause, Wei Wuxian replies.

"Oh. Okay."

"I would also like to fix our relationship."


Great. Now, even Wei Wuxian thinks he is nuts.

"I was thinking, since we will be brothers-in-law in the future, we should try to have a civil relationship."

Wei Wuxian seems to be mulling over his words.


"Would you like to meet for drinks? Tonight?"

He has no idea why he said that.

"Sure. My room or yours?"

Wei Wuxian is way too on board with this. Probably because of free liquor.

"Mine. See you tonight."

Before Jin Zixuan can say anything else, Wei Wuxian is dragged away by Nie Huaisang, who is busy chatting about some exotic bird he saw.

He is about to leave as well when he sees Lan Wangji glaring at him from the corner of the room.

Glaring is an understatement. Lan Wangji is looking at him like Jin Zixuan has murdered his whole family in front of him.

It sends a chill down his spine.

Not wanting to risk it any further, Jin Zixuan runs away (once again).


Conversing with Wei Wuxian is extremely easy when they are both inebriated. They mostly talk about how awesome A-Li is, perhaps the only thing they agree on.

By the end of the night, he thinks he has managed to (somewhat) befriend Wei Wuxian.


The next morning, he is approached by Jiang Cheng, who looks angrier than usual. Jin Zixuan didn't know it was possible.

"What do you think you are doing?"

"What?" He isn't doing anything, except trying to mend the future.

"Firstly, you defended Wei Wuxian. Yesterday night, you even got drunk with him! Are you saying that you don't have any selfish reasons behind all of this?"

"I... I don't! I'm just trying to make up for my mistakes!" Can't he have just one day without anybody suspecting him?

Jiang Cheng looks skeptical.

"I've got my eyes on you."

Well, fuck.
