    Summary

    Xie Lian held up the flyer, and squinted at it through the eye-holes of his mask. Beneath the words ‘Join the Selection! Be the Ghost King’s Bride!’ the sweeping eaves rendered in wobbly black ink matched the silhouette of the building in the distance. Paradise Manor. The Ghost King’s home.

    -

    ...The Princess and the Pea retelling? Set before the events of the novel. The Ghost King of Paradise Manor is selecting a bride. Xie Lian doesn't really know what he's doing there.

    Summary

    Luo Binghe is a man with the world at his feet. After clawing his way from nothing to prosperity, he revels in the success and power he has gained. There is nothing that is beyond his reach, anything he desires is at his beck and call.

    He's proved wrong when he meets Shen Yuan, the warm-hearted school teacher who seems to be the only person in the world who Luo Binghe set his eye on who wouldn't bend over backwards for him or swoon into his arms.

    What's up with that?

    Summary

    Brunch went south about two steps away from the front entrance of Shen Yuan’s favorite cafe; a place with free wifi, big squishy chairs, custom mimosa pitchers, and an endless avocado toast special. He arrived bright and early with his computer bag under one arm and the intention of staking out one of the solo tables in back for the rest of the morning until he’d finished his current editing project.

    The project in question was the latest offering from Airplane Shooting Towards the Sky after he broke out from webnovels, so endless mimosas and carbohydrates would be necessary for Shen Yuan to make it through with his sanity and blood pressure intact. Shang Qinghua was late on his most recent draft, but the earliest chapters had been finalized so he could get started on that at least.

    However, his phone pinged just as he reached the entrance, and Shen Yuan made the fatal mistake of pausing to check the message.

    Shen Jiu: Too late now, but brace yourself. We’re inside. Qi-ge set us both up.

    Or: that one where Shen Yuan lost his break up, but Luo Binghe is about to kill it on the rebound.

    Summary

    “And…” Shang Qinghua raises a brow. “What did you say you were?”

    “Well,” Shen Yuan says, subtly trying to pull his hand back from a heavily sedated Luo Binghe who not-so-subtly keeps murmuring ‘Married?’ over and over with every squeeze of his fingers, “about that—”

    “Bro.” The scandalized gasp that bounces off the walls makes Shen Yuan feel like a criminal. “You had to lie about your familial relationship with the dude, and the first thing that came to mind was to say you’re his husband?”

    “Actually,” Shen Yuan corrects, “I didn’t say I was his husband.”

    At his side, Luo Binghe breathes out a soft, “Husband.”

    Or; Shen Yuan acts like pretending to be Binghe’s husband isn’t the best thing to ever happen to him.
