    Summary

    “A match,” Qin Huaizhang breathed, as the red soulmarks around the infants’ wrists brightened as their tiny fingertips touched. “Everyone—congratulations! Congratulations.”

    He began to say more, only to hesitate as none of the parents gathered in the room said a word. Cunningly-hidden braziers warded against the chill of winter in the richly appointed room within the heart of the capital, the furnishings often outlined by the coils of a four-toed dragon. The five-toed version could adorn only the Son of Heaven, but the four-toed chased its cousin’s wake, worn by princes and nobles. Like the solemn, bearded marquis in fine robes standing beside his wife, their son swaddled in brocade and fox furs.

    Summary

    “We’re going home,” Zhou Zishu huffs when he pulls Wen Kexing’s arms over his shoulders, then hitches his legs around his waist. He hops in place to get a good grip under the bends of his knees, then makes sure his robe is covering as much of Wen Kexing as it can. “If you die before we get there, the first thing Shixiong will do when we see each other on Naihe Bridge is hit you.”

    Summary

    Jin Ling is lucky.

    He’s always known that soul-names meant nothing. His parents matched, but that hadn’t protected them. They died tragically and young. He never saw Shenshen’s mark, but he knows that Xiao-shushu’s name was Nie, not Qin. They still married.

    It's better that his soul-name is dead, because he can't afford to be in love with him. He can't be in love with any man, but he definitely can't love a Wen.

    Summary

    Grand gestures of endearment, touches, and honeyed words in public are Wen Kexing's forte, though it doesn't mean Zhou Zishu doesn't have his moments.

     

    Or, coincidentally, the times Zhou Zishu discovers a couple of ways to shut Wen Kexing up.

    Summary

    They don’t hang out. They’re not friends. The only time they talk is nights like these when Hua Cheng has no one else to turn to. Nights he takes a sledgehammer to rock bottom.

    Or: Hua Cheng leaves his shitty family behind, and goes to the only place he knows he's safe.
