[From Author] A cliché yao(*)-human love story with xianxia background ... Fine, it's just a yao vs human love story. Sanctimonious shou x Obstinate gong. (*) yao: a type of supernatural being evolved into human form and consciousness from plants, animals, or inanimate objects. Typically can shape-shift into their original form. [From VN-TL] "If food is left over, in a few days mould would grow, if fruits are buried underground, two days is enough for them to spoil, if tea is left exposed, it cannot be consumer overnight. The human heart lies in our bodies for decades, will it also rot, degenerate ... even change completely?" In troubling times, old friends have now stood on opposite sides of the front line. Pride and suspicion have pushed them even further, only for them to finally realise, the peace during childhood was the thing we chase after all this time. NOTE: Fan translation, do comment on errors if spotted. I do not own the story and any of the characters - the original author is Priest.
