Midnight Music

The satin dripping of piano music was creeping in from the hall, and suddenly my bed felt cold. I pussyfooted to the door. A flickering glow crawled up the walls.

Then black silence reigned.

I reached out, touched the piano. Felt the candlewick.


The author's comments:
This piece is a form of flash fiction I read about--a story in 55 words or less. I'd love to get some constructive criticism on it. :)
