Tantalizing Teaser

Tantalizing Tuesday is all about writing 200 word Tantalizing Teasers, inspired by a personal picture prompt to post on Tuesdays. The emphasis is on having fun, pictures can be anything that takes our fancy. I hope you enjoy what we have to offer.

The haunting melody ripped through him. The sad tune wafted through his subconscious, waking him from a solid slumber. It called to his lonely soul as it echoed in the carnivorous room and through the winding hallways of the large stone factory they currently called home. He shuffled down the metal stairs, quietly so as not to disturb the performer and was shocked to see his friend sitting at the large piano. Not wanting to be noticed he propped himself against the wall and settled in to listen to the beautiful music he had no idea Derric was capable of producing.

He had no idea how long he stood there transfixed by the poignant harmonies. And then suddenly a melancholy tune almost felled him. Kranz felt like a complete pansy ass! Here he was supposed to be a big strong leader of this coven and a song had brought him to tears. Derric had a voice that seemed to crawl into Kranz’s veins and pump through him. Derric was the heartbeat Kranz was missing. However, he had done such a fabulous job guarding himself from romantic entanglements that he had completely convinced the other man they had no future together.

Don't forget to check out my fellow Teasers!!

Can't it be fixed? Can't he tell him the truth now? *sighs*

I do so hope the sadness goes and he can be happy again. Fantastic imagery in a great teaser

The use of the piano music is powerful. It manages what words and physical interaction often fail to do. Great scenario.

Surely there's always a chance, especially when Kranz recognizes the error of his ways!

Ahhhhh, but they do have a future together. He may resist, but everyone succumbs to hope. Loved it:) xo
