– Clair de Lune –
(Music + School + Drama)
Music. Not any kind of music. It was that music. I was in the school corridor, it was the last class and I was preparing myself to get home when that soft piano sound struck me. I never have heard that melody before. But, at the same time it felt way too nostalgic to be the first time hearing it. For any kind of strange reason, I just felt warm inside and a vanilla ice cream image popped up my mind. I was intrigued, I had to understand where that music was coming from.
I started moving faster in the direction of the sound. The clearer I heard the music, more my heart beat harder. Without realizing I was running across the corridors. I passed by people but they all just seemed like shadows. My head and heart could only think in one thing. The music.
The music seemed to follow my steps, becoming nearer of the climax and intense the faster I ran. Finally, I was there. Outside of the auditorium’s. I could hear the music reaching its climax in any second and I just had to enter.
I opened the door slowly without wanting to startle the person who was playing. And… there you were. Playing the piano for an empty auditorium. Without making any noise I seated in the last row, hidden by the shadows. I looked at you and I was baffled with the massive beauty you emanated.
Your body moving with perfect sync with the music dressed in a tight black dress. I was hypnotized with the movements of your long hair moving up and down while you struck the piano keys. Did minutes pass? Or hours? I just can’t tell! I lost the sense of time completely. As I lost the awareness around me, completely absorbed in you, in your music. Probably that’s why I didn’t realize your fingers pressing those last notes in a slowly and smooth way.
I just realized you had stopped when you looked at me, directly into my eyes… Into my soul. I don’t know how, but you knew exactly the seat I was.
– Matt… I was waiting for you! – you said in a calm and suave voice.
You got up and turned towards me in a so fluid style that I had to ask myself if you hadn’t practice that movement over and over to get it right. However, by the way you were walking towards me I realized that those fluid and gentle movements were your natural self. Behind you, in the centre I could see the gigantic moon from the window. Clearly, I had been there more time than I realized.
The more you advanced, the faster my heart beat. I didn’t know you. I didn’t even know how you knew me or why you were expecting me but I was too inebriated in the moment and in your river eyes. When you got to my seat I could feel my heart in my mouth. Have to be honest, I thought I was going to throw up.
I got up from my seat like I just had been electrocuted. You smile. Our faces were close and I felt losing myself under your blue eyes and your perfect figure. You lifted your arm and softly touched my 2-day beard. You looked more intensive to me and smiled again. However, this time the smile was one of sorrow, I could see it in your eyes.
– Matt… I love you! – you kissed me. I closed my eyes and lost myself in the moment. A passionate, but sober kiss. One that only soul mates would share. All this involved in the vanilla scent that was your perfume.
And then… It hit me! I knew you! Of course, I did! How could I have forgotten you was the question. You were my love, my darling, my… Everything.
I opened my eyes. But the auditorium was missing. You were missing. I looked around me but I could just see darkness. That’s when I realized. It had been a dream. A dream where it combined the day we met, the music I loved to hear you play the most and the black dress who you have used in our first date. I looked to the left side of the bed and there it was. Your empty space. The space which had been empty for ten years when you left me so abruptly in that car accident. I turned my head to the ceiling with my eyes closed and felt the warm of my tears down my face.
And… There it was. The music… Again. Probably I was still half-asleep. However, I decided to get up and try to understand where the music was coming from. The music led me to the living room.
As I did in my dream I opened the door softly and for a second I saw you. But, of course, it was not you. No… In fact, it was the reason of not giving up my life when you left. I never told him about this music, but it seems he was also attached to it. And, as you, he played it magically.
The music stopped.
– Sorry dad, did I wake you up? – I smiled, negatively nodded my head and closed the door. Not a second later and the delicate music could be heard.
I leaned my back against the door, smiled and closed my eyes.
Darling, I love you… I miss you… But, you will have to wait for me until I get old. I surely will wait for you!
Ok guys! That was it! 😀 I hope you enjoyed it nearly as much as I enjoyed writing it! That would mean you enjoyed it a lot! xD
Now, for the nominations… I know that some people probably have already been tagged, but well, since I’m on holidays I don’t really know much what is happening ahah
