Author and notes: An answer to Challenge #9. What Stephen might have been thinking during that first meeting.
Stephen followed the music with a desperate intensity. If he focused on each note, perhaps he could forget everything else. He had to concentrate; there were so many memories competing for his attention.
He tried to close his eyes to the distraction, but when he did, he saw them. Her face came to him first, of course, but there were others. All those brave, Irish fools, who had fought for hope and died for nothing, haunted him still.
He could not lose himself though, could not forget who he was, not with that great fool flailing about next to him.
