Tantalizing Tuesday

It's Tuesday and I'm taking part in Tantalizing Tuesday again. I had fun last week. The idea is to take a personal picture prompt write a 200 word teaser for it.

I give you Moonlight Serenade.

Rissa followed the melody and found Liam before the baby grand piano.

Sensing her, his fingers paused a moment. “Here I am contemplating that full shimmering orb and a moonbeam comes to life beside me.” 

“I didn’t know you played.” 

Haven’t in years, I’m very rusty. I was invited to remember by this light falling across the keys.” He flexed his fingers in the glow. “Gorgeous moon, isn’t it?”

She followed his gaze out the window. “Breathtaking.” 

Come, I’ll play you a song made of moonlight.” At her nod, he played a little more of the same piece.

“Moonlight Sonata?” 

 He smiled that she knew. “I was inspired. Come, my Euterpe.” 


“Euterpe is the muse of pleasure and music. You bring me pleasure and make my heart sing.”

She sat on the piano facing him, her feet softly tinkling several keys. He caressed his moonlit muse’s bare legs before playing Debussy’s Clair de Lune in lyrical tribute. Before long he transitioned into complicated rhythms. The vibration danced over and through her – softly adagio, increasing tempo to mezzo, and on to allegro. And when her body rose in complete harmony, he took her hand. Their sensual symphony had just begun.
