The Last Farewell
Henry lived an opulent life and inherited the huge property and the luxurious palatial house he lived in with his family from his grandfather. But he squandered his wealth in gambling in the race course and the casino. This forced him soon to mortgage his property in order to pay off his dues. Natalie, his wife and their eight year old daughter Iliana were heartbroken at the prospect of leaving their home and settling in a commonplace domicile.
Henry arranged for a grand farewell party at his residence a day before he was to forsake his home. Distinguished guests gathered to attend the lavish feast arranged for them. One of them expressed his desire to buy their piano and the portrait of a lady that hung on the wall above it
After the meal, Henry sat before the piano for the last time to play a song that both Natalie and Iliana sung with an ache in their heart. Natalie couldn’t hold back her tears that came tumbling down her face.
