Cameron was used to getting requests for songs like “Unforgettable,” “The Way You Look Tonight,” and “Memory;” in fact, he had played some of them so many times that he almost thought the piano could play them itself.

Six-Word Stories Vol.2
A while back, I wrote a blog of six-word stories. It seemed to be enjoyable to many people, so I thought I would try another one.
