Close To The HeartWe wont live under a stereotype,
Love is real if we try,
Like an ant crawling across the cracked pavement,
Somehow well make it,
Even after we fall through the crevices

"What do you all say to a bit of music?" he asked.
"Certainly," I answered.
"Oh yes, please do darling!" Tabitha exclaimed, "he's quite the maestro."
Christopher laughed, shaking his head.
"Now, now love, I'd not go that far."
He strode over to the piano as the other guests urged him on. Ida entered the room bearing a merrily steaming teapot and more crumpets.
