Books! And cleverness! There are more important things--friendship and bravery--

The young girl's fingers danced across the black and white keys, releasing the sweetest and richest of harmonies into the stillness. And she smiled, because already she knew that this was what she was born to do. The realm of music was hers for the exploring, and there was all the time in the world in which to enjoy it.

The young woman fingered the glossy keys almost reverently. It had been so long since she was a little girl; since her hands had flown joyfully up and down the keyboard. "For you... the silence, it was all for you," she whispered to someone who was present only in her heart as she gently teased a soft melody from the piano. It was the first time in a long time, but the silence would never reign again. She would never be broken by anyone, man or boy, again. The music slowly reawakening inside her was worth so much more than that.
