I thought the actual sex was the least erotic part of the story, oddly enough.
I liked the story. Just one comment -- at the end she mentioned she was hurt but nothing about how. She wasn't in the accident since she didn't know about it until later. Maybe you can edit the story to clarify -- unless I missed something.
A sweet story but very sad that she found the love of her life only to lose it.
If I read it right she tried to take her own life and that's how she found out she was pregnant.
Thank you for these wonderful comments about Laura's story. I'm afraid Oldwoodbutcher that she is a bit shy about that phase she went through after finding out he died. The phrase "tried to follow him" and alluding to the stiffness of the tendons of her wrist where she had cut them in her suicide attempt was as much as she was comfortable allowing me to say. Perhaps in "Aria Reprise" her twin children will be a little more... open and forthright about their song(s).
I can't wait to find out myself. *wink*
Erotic as in sex only, No. Romantic as in love that doesn't die, Yes. I loved how you wove music throughout the story, as her motivating force. I did catch the reference to her attempt to end her life. You weaved a spell here that made me happy and sad and I'll remember more than a few moments.
Loved this story told from a musicians soul!
At least that is what I felt in reading this while 'preparing' for an improvisational piano performance today. Your words describing her playing influenced my notes played at that performance! In a good way!
Thank you for this wonderful, albeit sad, story.
Music has always moved me. The one thing that has always bothered me was that it had to end. What I tried to achieve here, what, from your comments, I did achieve, was that bittersweetness when the music fades away to silence, but the memory of it goes on.
Alot of my other work passes erotic and begins sliding towards pornographic in the sexual intimacies, but Laura, possessing her musical soul, just could not quite bring herself to be quite that explicit, choosing to couch her fondest memory in the terms of the music that was her second love and her solace.
Thank you for taking the time to read, vote, and let me know how I did with your comments.
And, the orchestra is practicing their next piece as we speak. *wink*
I'm crying. Very moving story. It might be sleep deprivation and hormones but that was a beautiful story. You truly have a gift.
