Summary: Crippled by arthritis, Rodney had resigned himself to living what was left of his life alone and without the music he loved. Until a man named John came looking for piano lessons.

Note: Go see the wonderful art danceswithgary did for this piece! Here:!!!!

More thanks to fenchurch1 for the beta and advice on music lessons and electronic keyboards. I, of course, fiddled [pun intended] with it after her hard work!

For the journeystory challenge organized by the ever-patient nickygabriel… thank you sweetie, for not giving up on this!

The genesis of the actual story is danceswithgary's fault. While she was debating about doing the Twilight Zone challenge this year or not, I was looking over the synopses of the shows and ran across "A Piano in the House"… and pianos and Rodney are made for each other!
