Huh. And what's up with the tray itself?

Permalink

There is food on it. 

If Chu Wanning is the kind of person to pay attention to personal cooking styles she may observe that it was not cooked by any of the usual workers at Mengpo hall but, uh, she probably isn't.

Chu Wanning is the kind of person to pay attention to whether food is spicy or edible or tasty. This food is tasty.

 

She makes an appearance at dinner the next day to stiltedly thank Duan Yihan for the food before fleeing into the night.

Permalink

"You're welcome, Xianjun," she says earnestly before Chu Wanning can complete the fleeing action. 

Permalink

NO SHE DIDN'T HEAR THAT she refuses to hear any earnestness. Chu Wanning's ears are Closed.

(aaaaa)

 

Chu Wanning makes sure to attend dinner religiously for a few days. If she misses a meal, Duan Yihan might be generous again and then Chu Wanning might have to Feel Something about it.

After several more days someone slips a letter under the door of the Red Lotus Pavilion.

...

 

...what does it say?

Permalink

The note is from Mo Ran, talking about how she's recovering and random things she talked about with or overheard from various Shisheng Peak disciples, and also interesting birds and butterflies she's observed through her window. 

 

There's a postscript by Duan Yihan apologizing for bothering Chu Wanning but it was this or Mo Ran would probably have tried to sneak out to visit her, so.

Oh no, this is adorable. Cute. Oh no.

Mo Ran is so excited about everything; Chu Wanning doesn't understand how anyone can be so cheerful and earnest so soon after nearly dying a horrific death. (She reminds herself that not everyone can turn into a bitter crone the moment they experience suffering - Wanning is probably an outlier in that regard - but still).

Chu Wanning visits Mo Ran to sternly caution her against sneaking out.

Mo Ran lights up the moment she sees her. 

"Xianjun!" she calls, waving energetically, albeit in a manner careful not to jar her still-healing ribs. 

Permalink

Chu Wanning frowns at her anyway. "Stop that. Don't move around so much, do you want your bones to heal or not?"

Permalink

Pout. "My arm isn't broken, Xianjun," she protests.
