He is supposed to bring her back to her boyfriend as they start criss-crossing through the country. But somewhere along the way, between long car rides and uncountable nights under the starry sky, they end up finding more than they bargained for: a love that will consume them. But when they reach their destination, what will they have left? Fate wasn't done with them yet.

You know why a Spider Lily is called the flower of separation?

It’s because the leaves and the flowers can never meet.

The flowers can only blossom when the leaves are all withered away.

They miss one another to grow the sprout and bloom the flowers,

but in the end they leave their yearning for each other and never unite.

Isn’t it beautiful?

Even in death, they seem to miss each other like lovers.


- Soah (Bride of the Water God)





Hello my dear readers! I am really excited for this fic, since I decided to try out 'something new'.

The story is also mostly inspired by my favorite german book "Der Kuss des Kjer", my favorite movie "Letters to Juliet" and Jesse McCartney's video and lyrics to "Just so you know". I don't know much about road trips through countries neither do I exactly know every city and edge of China, but I always do my research very detailed, please bear with me!

This fic will deal more with the character's feelings and their own developments and will probably be more poetic, romantic and descriptive. The pace will be rather slow since every chapter will revolve around one day. But the plot will also play a huge role and there are some twists, just so you know.

Wanderlust means 'a strong desire to travel'.

Nevertheless, enjoy!


The Ren in this story is not Nu'est-Ren!
