‘Wo wei ni xie de,’ he said, as he raised the violin to his left shoulder, tucking it under his chin. 

He had told her many violinists used a shoulder rest, but he did not: there was a slight mark on the side of his throat, like a permanent bruise, where the violin rested. 

“You — made something for me?” Tessa asked.

“I wrote something for you,” he corrected, with a smile, and began to play.

Day 22: Edit of any snippet 

Tessa remembered that day clearly, the day the Silent Brothers had said there was nothing more they could do to keep Will alive. (…) Tessa had squared her shoulders and gone to give the news to their family and friends, trying to be as calm for them as she could, though her heart had felt as if it were being ripped out of her body.It had been June, the bright hot summer of 1937, and with the curtains thrown back the bedroom had been full of sunlight, sunlight and her and Will’s children, their grandchildren, their nieces and nephews (….) and those who were as close as family (…) And because it was Tessa and Will, the others came and went all day, as Shadowhunters did at a deathbed, telling stories of Will’s life and all the things he and Tessa had done through their long years together. (…)  At the end of the day, as the sky had darkened, the family had come around Will’s bed and kissed him each in turn and left one by one, until Will and Tessa were alone together. (…) And in the shadows they’d whispered, reminding each other of the stories only they knew. (…) Near midnight the door had opened and Jem had come in. (….) He had come in like a shadow in his white robes, and Tessa had taken a deep breath when she had seen him, for she had known that this was what Will had been waiting for, and that the hour was now. (…) He lifted the violin to his shoulder then, and raised the bow. And he played. (…) Jem played, and he played the years of Will’s life as he had seen them. (…)  and when he was done, (…) he had sat down beside them on the bed, and taken Will’s hand, the one that Tessa was not holding, and both Will and Tessa had heard Jem’s voice in their minds.I take your hand, brother, so that you may go in peace.Will had opened the blue eyes that had never lost their color over all the passing years, and looked at Jem and then Tessa, and smiled, and died, with Tessa’s head on his shoulder and his hand in Jem’s.
