Moonlight Sonata
2nd edition

The sound, a song, echoed through the night air around the old manor of Edouard Richelieu*. It was the famous piano theme Moonlight Sonata by Ludvig Von Beethoven and it added to the night air. Above the Richelieu manor was a full moon.

Whoever was at the piano of Richelieu manor, nobody ever knew. There had been a silent and somber funeral about a week before that night, at the hour of 8 pm, and-it was supposed- the deceased was Edouard himself.  Edouard had died on a new moon night. He had been playing his piano. Suddenly he suffered a stroke and collapsed, presumably dead. But the wise ever warn us not to assume anything.

The full moon illuminated the earth around the manor. It was thick, aged brown earth with a few sparse shrubs growing about. Throughout the day and till that hour- 11:50pm- the ground about the manor was visibly empty. Then the sonata rang through the night. As mysteriously as he died and the song emerged, there was a pack of wolf-like things huddled under the moon. The song continued and the pack began to bay and howl in synchronized manner. A passer-by would be chilled and thrilled but only the pack and the unknown pianist heard it.

Then the music paused and a lone figure stood at the window of the parlor where the piano stood. Two bright red eyes looked down at the pack.

"Les fils de la nuit!"
[Children of the night=wolves, or werewolves]
They howled in reply.
"Belle! Vous avez faime, n'est-ce pas? Allez. Mangez."
[Good! You are hungry, are you not? Go. Eat!]

One by one, the wolf things departed from the ground and went to seek prey. The phantom returned to the piano and continued to play until the hour of 1 am.
Moonlight Sonata [2nd Edition]
This edition concerns werewolves at a French manor. The French is translated.


Michel-le-fou's Profile Picture
Michael Rubin
Artist | Professional | Literature
I have been writing since secondary school where I began to receive recognition for my fiction as class assignments. In university I was a section editor for the school newspaper and continued writing stories and poetry as well as news articles and editorials. I received several awards. I received my Bachelor of Arts in English Literature from a good university and went abroad, to teach ESL to support my interests, [Writers never earn enough by writing!] I earned good pay and recognition for my skill in teaching too. Recently, I edited and wrote several dissertations. The students I wrote for passed viva voce and got degrees.
My principle genres of fiction are horror and science fiction. Conditions do not warrant me to write long stories like before, but I can manage 10 pages.
