From,

Your friend Jiang Cheng


To Jiang Cheng,

Don’t listen to Sect Leader Jin Jin Guangshan, he’s always been a little bitch stupid fuck slutty tramp bit unruly. I think that you should keep your nephew in Lotus Pier forever as long as you want can possible. He deserves to be a part of both your life. He is just as much a Jiang as a Jin and we both know that this is what Jiang Yanli would have wanted for her child she would have wanted the right thing to do he needs to know that. Don’t I know you won’t give up on him. You’re going to be the best uncle for him, I know it. He’s going to love you as much as

Best Wishes,

Nie Huaisang


Nie Huaisang,

Stop writing to me Can you not irritate me I know better than to listen to that asshole fuckface shithead man. I wish I could keep him here indefinitely for longer I shall keep my nephew here until everything settles down at Koi Tower. He is a Jin and a Jiang, and anyone who forgets that will get whipped by Zidian face my fury wrath be hung naked at the entrance of Koi Tower have to face the consequences. Of course, I won’t give up on A-Ling! He is my blood family nephew, and I will be the best uncle I can be. I’ll try my best Thank you for giving me advice trying to sending me this letter.

Yours Sincerely,

Jiang Cheng


Listen Jiang Cheng,

That fucker Sect Leader Yao may have had his eyebrows on fleek, but everything else (especially his clothes and his shitty opinions) was not.

Sincerely aggravated and scarred for life,

Nie Huaisang


Alright Nie Huaisang,

Let’s get one thing straight. I am not His eyebrows were not on fleek. Also, don’t get me started on his hideous robes. First that ugly pattern (he said he was trying something new, but at that age and with that pouch he calls a stomach…no), and then with that monstrous belt (he was definitely trying to hide his stomach). Does he not have enough time to get a custom-made outfit or designer? (I don’t believe it since he certainly has enough time to idly gossip.)

I am rage-pacing around the room now.

Jiang Cheng


Jiang-xiong!

You forgot the worst part. The hair. I couldn’t stop staring at it. Even the thick web of lies he weaves during the discussions wouldn’t hold back his disastrous mess of hair. I cannot believe he wore a hairnet. A hairnet, Jiang Cheng! Save me. I am pulling my own hair just thinking about it.

Your nearly insane companion,

Nie Huaisang


Huaisang,

You must stay strong. Believe in yourself as much as Sect Leader Ouyang does in his cane every time he walks.

Jiang Cheng


Jiang-xiong!

I am cackling! How dare you?

Huaisang


Huaisang,

If it makes you feel any better, my disciples just freaked out and asked me why I was grinning. They’re trying to persuade me to see the physician. They think my face is permanently stuck that way. Even Jin Ling’s asking me what wrong. Take responsibility for your actions.

Jiang Cheng


Jiang-xiong,

I’m more than willing to take responsibility for my actions, but that would require me to come to Lotus Pier to make it up to you, and Jin Ling, and I don’t think you are ready for that responsibility.

Your dear friend and innocent correspondent,

Nie Huaisang


A-Sang,

Try me.

PS: We both know you are many things, but innocent is not one of them.

Jiang Cheng


A-Sang,

Jin Ling enjoyed your company. Thank you for coming and staying in Lotus Pier for a few days. You’ve spoiled him so much that now he wants ‘the-pretty-uncle-with-the-good-hair’ to get him a similar looking fan and more ice cream. If I try to be strict with him, he tells me, ‘that’s not how pretty uncle Nie would treat me, he would give me ice-cream’.

Jiang Cheng


A-Cheng,

I enjoyed spending time with you and Jin Ling too. It was a lot of fun. Jin Ling was so adorable and well-mannered. He is truly ambitious, and just as hard-working and passionate and stubborn as someone I know. Also, if he wants ice-cream then just give him ice-cream! Stop being so difficult.

A-Sang


A-Sang,

Oh, so I’m the one being difficult here? Unbelievable! I have to deal with two children over here.

A-Cheng


A-Cheng,

First of all, yes. Second of all, also yes. I am baby, okay? Da-ge takes good care of me!

A-Sang


A-Sang,

I know that you probably don’t want to talk right now. I wouldn’t either, but I hope you’ll allow me to come for the funeral. Jin Ling wants to come too, but I told him we should wait for your response. If you don’t want us around, I’ll understand.

A-Cheng


A-Cheng,

Come, please. Bring A-Ling with you.

A-Sang


Huaisang,

I know there is something you are keeping from me. I know that look in your eyes. I’ve known you for years, you can’t keep things from me. But if you don’t want to talk, then I won’t make you. I know it has something to do with Jin Guangyao

Jiang Cheng


A-Cheng,

If you truly wish to know the truth, then I will tell you everything. Don’t keep Jin Ling at Koi Tower, have someone look after him in Lotus Pier. Don’t bring him here. I know who killed Jin Guangshan and my brother

A-Sang
