“We have to get up?” Wei Wuxian prompts him.
Lan Wangji nods. “Jiang Wanyin said the Wen Clan will be brought in to the conference.”

Incongruous with his love-kissed body and the golden light shining over his skin, his eyes sharpen. A glint, dark as obsidian, replaces the dreamy clouds of a moment before.
Lan Wangji mourns the simple happiness, even as he leans in to look at those eyes.
“We should go,” Wei Wuxian says. His voice is soft rain, the promise of an oncoming storm.
