The crowd all over the house cheered, then, and the music started, and for a while his friend looked on, but eventually left the music to the speakers piping bass into every room.

They let their surfaces shimmer under the low hung chandelier, exchanging little solos, but in the comfort of the moment he plucked one of her strings, running a sly finger up and down until the tone met and surpassed the next string’s tone. He rested a soft hand about her neck and cradled his chin in her chin rest, and in largo they coupled under the light and danced with the club music bursting around them.ย ย
