http://riverinaromantics.blogspot.com.au/2012/06/music-for-muse-writing-challenge-2.html?zx=888a30d0b0acf69e  Join other writers for their offerings to musical selections at Riverina Romantics for this month’s musical writing challenge.  My offering is:

My  musical inspriation:  The Civil Wars – Poison & Wine.

Alina closed her eyes, tilted her head back and fed her bruised soul to the grand piano.  She sensed her husband outside the door—hovering like the argument they’d just suffered—in the cold sea air that permeated the stone walls of Alastair Keep.  She played.  He was silent.  Was he wringing his hands or did anger still disfigure his handsome face?  She’d always known it wasn’t forever.  The only forever in her life was her family—but even now the incessant waves eroded that rock.

Rory’s voice penetrated the music, but she didn’t turn from the piano, her fingers flashing over the keys of Liszt’s Liebestraum—a love song.  Love, fear and a slow, creeping anger colored the music.

“I can’t offer you music,” he said.  “I can only offer you myself, but I know that will never be enough for you, unless we leave Alastair Keep forever and don’t look back.  The past will never leave us alone.”

This confrontation isn’t in the book!  Alina and Rory decided to tell me something!
