Just Jazz

He took her to the Club-house.
He still remembered her piano performance for the Club’s Annual Day two decades ago that had made him fall in love with her.
He considered himself lucky that she had agreed to marry him.

She wanted to play the piano again.
“Make me fall in love again?” he winked!

Her expert fingers got busy with the keys.
“What do you hear?” she questioned while playing her favourite piece.
"Just Jazz”.

She could hear nothing; a deadly car-accident had made her deaf.

He couldn't hear anything; the old piano had lost its sound of music.

  10. while many things change with time, much stays the same, as well. and though I don't get to choose what music I want to hear when listening to the radio, I can always change the station and find something I like better. or put on my own music. or sing. sometimes, I am reminded of a song I haven't heard in a long time, and I am happy to be reunited with the joy it brings me.

  11. That's beautiful. They still hear the music with their hearts and the love for each other.

  12. Oh, how beautifully sad. I love your idea for this prompt.


Your words mean a lot to me.
