Friday Fictioneers is hosted by the wonderful Rochelle, the undisputed master of what I call Sound Bite Fiction.
She sets the weekly challenge, and the standard.
This week’s wonderfully bizarre prompt photo is courtesy of Anshu Bhojnagarwala.
The idea, as always, is to write a story of around 100 words based on this picture, below.

These Foolish Things
A tinkling piano in the next apartment…
I hear the tune sighing through a second floor window.
I love that song.
Especially when she plays it.
Sometimes she stops, asks me to play, and she dances.
That is always the prelude to a romantic interlude.
She says the song, and the dance, always have that effect on her.
She is an expert pianist with an unmistakeable style.
I wonder who she is teaching in this building.
She stops, someone else continues.
I look up, see her body sway past a window.
I know who lives there.
