"I liked the tango better," he muttered under his breath. He patted Shuang reassuringly.

GOD. Mistakes were made. He looked genuinely distressed for a moment before covering it up with a laugh. "What's a song you like?"

He complied, and told him of a Chinese song, without lyrics.

“Oh, it doesn’t have lyrics – so if I sang it, it’d just be notes. I can play it for you, though.”

“Sure.” This wouldn’t be the first time Qingying played something for Laurie; he frequently did when teaching him instruments, and Qingying played instruments everyday as practice, or to calm himself before sleeping.
The guqin and dizi Laurie had become familiar with materialised, and Qingying settled on the carpet with the stringed instrument on his lap while the dizi floated beside him.
His fingers played the strings while magic played the flute, and soon the notes painted swirling clouds curling among stalks of a bamboo forest, rimming and dappling mountain peaks, and brushing over open water.

Laurie genuinely liked hearing Qingying play, and found it peaceful. He found his way back to the bed and shuffled up against the wall, resting his head and closing his eyes.

Shuang floated over and joined Ozzy on the bed. Qingying smiled softly as Laurie closed his eyes, and continued to play.
The song went on to illustrate raindrops on a lake’s surface, grass waving in emerald fields, a small boat swaying along a meandering river, water trickling down the rock face of a mountain, cranes and geese taking flight, a house with a thatched roof and warm kitchen fire, and the sun shining down into an open valley.
After he finished playing, Qingying came to sit on the edge of the bed, beside Laurie.

Qingying smiled softly. “I have heard of them; I’ve seen their albums on display in music shops.”
