The Key

Word Count:  103

Dwayne had forgotten to wind the key leaving Bill stuck with legs akimbo in front of what he presumed was a stunned audience.  He rolled his eyes; it wasn’t the first time the little pisher had messed up and Bill regretted not firing the kid back in Memphis.  He wagged his legs and heard a titter from the audience which prompted further frantic waving.  Within moments, Dwayne clumped to the piano whereupon he whispered, “sorry boss,” before turning the key.  Below, a panel opened, allowing Bill rolling access onto the stage.

Dwayne departed that day.  The little pisher took the key with him.
