    Summary

    Xiao Xingchen can’t breathe.

    It’s just the two of them here, in the abandoned classroom. Late afternoon sunlight filters through the grime-frosted windows, golden rays turning murky in the dusty air. It tickles at his throat, and he resists the urge to swallow, even as tendrils of late winter worm through the creaky wooden floorboards to nip at his ankles. The muted lull of chattering students settles over them both like a scratchy blanket, threadbare and stretched thin.

    “Xingchen-ge,” the black-clad delinquent leans in, gaze dark. “Aren’t you forgetting something?”

    ‘This boy… really will be the death of me.’

    A getting-together story, in bite-sized snippets.

    Xiao Xingchen had never been in love—he didn't know what it was supposed to feel like. He suspected it might feel a little like this.

    Summary

    For Xue Yang, there were two kinds of people in the world: those who fit in, and those who didn’t. He counted himself among the latter group, mostly due to his remarkable talent to attract all kinds of misfortune. An unhappy childhood was followed by a rather questionable employment, which ended in complete disaster. And that’s how he found himself on the streets, without any real prospect of turning his life around. Luckily, he had learned to appreciate the little things in life – the roof over his head provided by the local homeless shelter, for example. Or the bespectacled girl who frequented there and apparently regarded him as some kind of brother. Or the new guy working at the reception desk, who was just a little too perfect for Xue Yang’s liking…
    OR
    Xue Yang’s miserable life at the local homeless shelter takes a drastic turn when Xiao Xingchen starts working there (who may or may not be a member of the triad, at least if you were to believe A-Qing).

    Summary

    “Rich kid, too. That basic white tee is around six hundred bucks, and his shoes, damn, I’ve seen Chris Evans wear those to the Oscars,” Donghyuck continues. The boy’s clothes seem to be a bit fancier than most people’s wardrobe, and for sure fancier than Jeno’s thrifty jacket and his older brother’s sneakers. “I can’t recognize the pants, but that’s a very nice ass.”

    Summary

    Renjun turns the corner to see Lee Jeno in front of the door to the room opposite his. He’s still got a switchblade in one hand and his room key in the other. There is no easy way to navigate this situation.
