Well... a strong ending for this story. Much was resolved, though, in CBSRMT fashion, not always the way we'd like or hope. A bittersweet ending with the blind servant girl saving the lives of the protagonist and his wealthy upper crust friends and ends by disappearing with her love for the young aristocrat unrequited.
