Thanks to SorceressCirce for beta’ing.
My fingers move idly over the weathered ebony and ivory keys.
Out of tune…just like my life…
I shake my head as I continue playing.   
This battered, old piano is all that I have left. 
The only thing I was able to salvage from the wreckage that was my home.  
The storm took everything else – including my mother, wife, and daughter.
I feel a hand on my shoulder; I look up as it squeezes lightly. Emmett’s eyes are shimmering. “Come on, Edward. Dad’s waiting.”
I nod, lowering the cover onto the keys.
With one last glance, I say farewell.
