He deserves to shine, and he’s getting that chance. To feel that adrenaline rush underneath the warm spotlight as your fingers skitter across the keys, the last note that hangs in the hair until it’s swallowed up by the heavy applause. He wants to live, discover the rest of this thing called life.

“It’s so beautiful here.” He breathed out, turning his head towards me only to see my forced smile upon my face.

The author's comments:
This is an except from one of the novels I am currently working on right now. Quite unsure of where I am going with the plot or what to do with the title (guess we all think of that last though!) but I am liking what I am writing so far and hopefully soon enough, I'll get it finished.
