56.

Their fingers brushed lightly against each other, touching fleetingly, teasingly; every caress they felt on their own skin only itched them more.

If they weren’t on their way to school, early in the morning, they’d probably be intertwining fingers by now, holding each other and feeling warmth in each other’s hands as they walked down the wide street. The previous time they got into the heat of the moment was the first and the last and they were only lucky no one caught them while their lips were on each other. Wei WuXian was so agitated back then that it wouldn’t be a surprise if students who were passing by on their way to school thought that they were arguing. It’s not too far-fetched anyway; Wei WuXian was aware that the whole school probably thought they were on bad terms thanks to their unusual interaction mode. Lan WangJi always held a cold mien with him but Wei WuXian knew more than what he portrayed. While Wei WuXian approached Lan WangJi like it’s nothing, always grinning at him, always talking to him, Lan WangJi was always cold. Their contrast was stark, but it was comfortable. Other people might not understand how they worked but that’s fine too. More importantly, they knew it themselves. And that’s all that it mattered.

It’s Meeting Teacher’s Day.

Lan XiChen walked out of the teacher’s room after a meeting with the form teacher for Lan WangJi’s class, finding Lan WangJi sitting all by himself outside the classroom, waiting for him. With a smile, he strode towards his brother.

“WangJi, we can go home now,” he said.

“En,” Lan WangJi said, slinging his school bag to his back and stood.

It’s been half an hour.

Lan WangJi had come earlier today, sitting on his usual seat in the class, waiting.

Usually, he only needed to wait for 15 minutes. But half an hour had passed and there were no signs of hurried, excited footsteps, then a bubbly shadow jumping on him, before he’ll get to hear a bright “Lan Zhan! I’m here!” in his ears. Those were his routine, but those were nowhere to be seen.

Now, everything was quiet. Too quiet. He’s the only person in the class.

Was Wei Ying not coming today?

53.

Lan WangJi headed out of the bathroom first, as if he’d noticed that Wei WuXian needed time for himself to soothe his rampaging thoughts. The moment the door closed, Wei WuXian took in a deep breath and released it. With one hand holding against the wall, he closed his eyes and tried as hard as he could to calm himself down.

He wasn’t lying when he said Lan WangJi would always say yes whenever he invited him over to watch a drama with him.

He remembered one time exceptionally well. It’s when he managed to borrow a Blu-Ray disc of a very famous romance drama from a classmate that he hurriedly invited Lan WangJi over to his house on the day itself, where they settled themselves comfortably on the couch, both hugging cushions as they marathoned the drama.

48.

The words ignited in his brain, unceasingly repeating in his ears like the echoes of water hitting on the solid wall in the bathroom. Wei WuXian’s clutch was so cold on his wrist that he was sure the reason to why his skin was so hot was because he’s burning from Wei WuXian’s words. It’s not like they hadn’t been seeing each other naked before, to be fair. But they were small and they never thought too much about things, let alone being embarrassed about it. When they were still in kindergarten, Wei WuXian loved to come over to Lan WangJi’s bathtub and squeeze in the same tub as him despite the tub being small and only fitting for one person. When Lan WangJi wanted to leave, Wei WuXian would always seize him on the wrist and tell him not to, that he wanted to bathe with him.

Just like how he did now.

SUMMARY:

A story of two high school boys learning how to take care of an injured kitten.


The kindergarten in the neighbourhood was also a daycare house to let children stay in until when their parents were free to pick them up after they’re done with their job. And, naturally, for such a place, facilities like playground, pantry, and of course, a bathroom were necessary to keep the children happy and healthy. Usually, for easy care, the children will be grouped in pairs during their daily activities. They played in pairs, did homework in pairs, studied in pairs, and ate in pairs. The only exception was when they’re bathing. And that’s mainly because one baby bathtub was usually insufficient to house two babies at the same time.

Well, unless perhaps if the babies bathed outside the tub, which was rare on its own.

Bathtime was always chaotic. Children being children, they’d always play around, treating bathtime like playtime. Except for perhaps one baby.

Lan WangJi.

“WuXian, you’re staying over for dinner, right?” Lan XiChen asked once the kitten was done with its food and was now playing with a furball both Wei WuXian and Lan WangJi bought for it when they were out in the pet shop the previous day.

“I’m staying over the night!” Wei WuXian said cheerfully.

42.

There’s no way they can focus on studying for the rest of the day. The first touch of Lan WangJi’s lips on his own had ignited a fire that ascended from his guts all the way to his brain, erupting sparks in his head and burning his conscious into ashes. Before he knew it, he was seizing Lan WangJi on his shoulders and had pushed his against the wall, planting another kiss that’s an utter contrast to Lan WangJi’s as he smooched the docile man rough and hard. If it wasn’t for a student passing by their shelf, almost catching them red-handed before Wei WuXian’s sharp ears noticed the sounds, he wouldn’t have pulled his distance with Lan WangJi and pretending he was searching for a dictionary with his fake-cheery voice, half of his body hiding Lan WangJi in his shadows, away from view, as Lan WangJi gradually came back to himself.

SUMMARY:

A story of two high school boys learning how to take care of an injured kitten.


Lan XiChen had never seen his brother look so… discomfited like this. Ever. He watched him grow and the more he grew, the more unruffled he became; a lot of people used to call him a quiet child, but Lan XiChen always knew that he’s not antisocial, he’s only picky with the people he mingled with. He’d tried persuading him to make more friends but whenever he saw the reluctance on his brother’s face, he gave up, thinking that it won’t do any good to him if he was to force him to interact with people he didn’t like.
