100 word fiction: His love for music..

His love for music..

His love for music..

PHOTO PROMPT ©David Stewart

“Music has been my passion since the time I can remember. And becoming a violinist and playing at the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra in Amsterdam is my dream.”

Roy’s parents couldn’t fathom the reason their son wanted to choose music as a career. According to them, neither did it pay well nor would it fulfill their numerous dreams of a stable life. Moreover, they had always heard that the life of a musician was filled with struggle.

But the more they discouraged him, the keener he became. He joined the local orchestra society and began practicing day in and day out.

Written for the photo prompt and you can read the other entries here.
