World hard and cold... WenZhou soft and warm
You know, today I’m thinking how the scene that makes me go ‘oh Soulmates’ about wenzhou the most is… not at all romantic, and perhaps even kind of messed up from a certain point of view.
It’s the scene from chapter 48, when Zhou Zishu is nearly unconscious from injury. And Wen Kexing remembers how Great Shaman said that if Zhou Zishu rids himself of his martial ability, there is a chance to save his life. Zishu, of course, refused; but at this moment, with Zhou Zishu not in any condition to defend himself, Wen Kexing is tempted. If he does this, he can keep this person he’s come to love, and would his martial ability even matter? Wouldn’t Wen Kexing take care of him for the rest of their days?
And then Zhou Zishu stops him with one single sentence: “Others don’t understand, but do you not as well?”
Aren’t you the one who knows me?
Wen Kexing stops; he does understand; he is; so this single line is enough to return him to his senses.
But what really grabs me about this scene is that Zishu leaves it at that. There is no anger and no unease, not even admonishment for trying to take advantage of his vulnerability… because the thing is, Zishu also gets it. Zhou Zishu understands Wen Kexing, knows more or less his reasons for wanting to do this – that it comes from the place of caring, not malice. So he lets it go.
This scene stuck with me, I think, because of how easily it could be spun into conflict – how this could become a misunderstanding between them, how it could be used to feed into Zhou Zishu’s trust issues… but the narrative simply does not go there. Because understanding each other is the core of these characters’ relationship, and creating a conflict here would go against it.
