Friday Fictioneers — Don’t Cuss The Fiddle Player

In response to Rochelle Wisoff-Fields Friday Fictioneer Challenge.

We were brothers. We had our differences that split us apart in my youth. It pained me to hear him play. I called him a fiddle player and that hurt him greatly. He thought he was so good and much better than his younger brother. When I became famous he vanished from my life. I heard that he despised my music and said I had sold out to the establishment. When I found out he was in town for one of my concerts I reached out to him. I invited him to jam with me. We brought the house down.

    Nice story and happy ending. I wish it happened like this more often. The arts can be ‘healing vehicles’.

    Danny, Good story of a family reuniting. Too bad every family can’t follow that example. Well written with a great happy ending. 🙂

      Thanks Patricia! Unfortunately some families never heal from that type of separation.

    Great story and I bet they did bring the house down! Good job! Nan 🙂

      Hope you could feel the energy. I’m sure the crowd did.

    Wonderful that one of them still reached out…and that it was accepted. Good advice for everyone.

    Dear Danny,

    Those two took sibling rivalry to a new level. Glad they were able to reconnect in the end.

    Very nice ending to a painful story. Bringing the brothers back together worked perfectly. Kudos to you.
