From The Clockwork Three
When Giuseppe found the green violin, he did not think it would help him escape. He did not think it would play at all when he pulled it from the harbour. It bobbed and bumped around beneath the pier, still in its case, and a satisfied seagull perched on it. Giuseppe shooed the bird away and fished the case out of the water with a long pole. Inside it, he found the most beautiful, most remarkable violin he had ever seen. The varnished wood rippled deeper than green, like river water.
