And then she pulls him closer and kisses him, and he holds her with more care than he did with his violin, and the kiss is like a flavor of coffee that they both like.

Author's note: I know the ending is pretty unoriginal, so I tried to throw in some references from the previous chapters... I'm not sure if you can tell. They're sort of crammed in there.
