In Cold Sweat

17January

.            Every night I am awakened by a soft padding sound in the darkness. My eyes shoot open, but I dare not make a move. It’s there. I see the monstrous shadow on my wall, one that waxes and wanes into life as a car trudges through the empty streets… It is the scraping sound on the wooden boards, or the great rustling of leaves outside my window.
.           So I lie there in the dead of night. In cold sweat.  I know it’s coming.

.
.           CM is coming.

.           And I have one etude yet to learn. From today, CM is almost exactly a month; it’s actually a day less than that. Yes, this is the nightmare that threatens to drive me into insanity.
.           But there’s a rumor around the school–about Chopin’s 2 page etude. It’s quick, they said. It may come down to it that I must use that piece to save me. Tough to memorize and perhaps worse of all….Polyrhythms. Throughout the whole song.  They are definitely a force to be reckoned with.

Would it save me? Or would it end the world as I know it? I cannot fail.
