The Pianist

The pianist carefully reads through the sheet music that she has composed, making sure that every note and every rest is exactly where it needs to be.  She has worked on the piece for over a year, and now that she had come to the end, she needed to know that it was perfect.  When she reached the end she smiled.  After all this time, she had finally done it.

Retrieving a nail file from her bag, she begins to carve each note into the skin of her arm.  She will be the living music that calls forth the end.
