Prompt #083






It was a very old piano... precious...” He ran his fingers on the broken keys, blowing the dust away. “Look... ivory and ebony... Someone played this piano... A musician...” The voice betrayed a mix of wonder and bitterness.

Old memories, his friend thought. Old... and sad. He knew better than to ask. He had, in the past. “Some things are better left unsaid,”Illya had muttered. Over the years, Napoleon had got bits and pieces...

Illya picked up two keys miraculously unbroken. He caressed them fondly, his face suddenly lighting up. For a split second.

A devastating smile. Breathtaking. Heartbreaking.

beautifully melancholy and mysterious.

I love how we/he don't/doesn't have to know to understand.
