    Summary

    Strangest of all was a pair of black gloves on his hands: an odd choice, given that they were indoors. Inej thought the leather would have hindered his performance, but each note rang out steady and pure. His fingers never faltered.

    Inej waited, unwilling to interrupt him. When the piece tapered off in a shattering crescendo too big for this room, she said, "You play beautifully."

    The stranger glanced up sharply. His hands slipped from the keys. He looked almost startled. "What?" he asked, voice rough as stone.

    Kaz plays the piano. Inej plays the violin. Previously strangers, they are brought together by shared longing, carefully-concealed secrets, and a great passion for music.

    Summary

    “You’re here to see if I can offer you more than debts and words and— I should tell you, shouldn’t I?” he says, and perhaps he is speaking more to himself than to her because his sentences are more fragmented than usual, “I should tell you everything. You deserve it. You’ve always deserved it.”

    or

    The rooftop, the night before Inej leaves for Ravka.

    Summary

    She bought this stupid bathing suit because she looked good in it and she could hear her mom’s voice in her head telling her that she should wear what she wants, what makes her feel strong and beautiful and screw what other people think. But she’d be lying to herself if she didn't admit to wondering what Luke would think of it.

    All of those things can be true at the same time.

    What? They can.
