Delores at myfeatherednest posted some Wednesday Words yesterday. I wrote something in the comment section, and felt silly afterwords. The words deserved something more, which Delores wrote today. Simply lovely.
That in mind, I wrote this today. Hopefully, it will be better.
Richard ran his fingers lightly along the piano, willing himself to ignore the pain in fragile arthritic fingers. Had it been so long ago?

Genius…that was what they called me, then.
The first chord sounded and Richard willed his hands to play the classics once more.
