I am German and usually prefer to write in my native language. So, the story is written in German. If you would like to read it with any gain, you would have to understand German. Sorry if I did not make myself clear in the first place :)

Oh... it's kinda sad, but wonderful! I love little boys in 19th century-style, and this one even plays one of my favourite music instruments :meow:
It has a great atmosphere, the cold colours fitting to the cold-minded people, who give him nothing, and the warm colours for the guy, who does his best to delight the others...
I read in another comment that you wrote the story in German - did you publish this version? I would really love to read it. :3

I would love to read the story but I can imagine it from the picture, I hope Arthur gets a happy ending Oliver Twist style. I will be the generous lady benefactor who adopts him and he becomes world famous as a musician.

(*tosses all the coins in her pockets into Arthur's hat*) Bravo, little lad!

This is lovely. You can tell that he's in his own wonderful, warm, little world, wrapped up in the music of his making. Excellent.

I really like the perspective you put the viewer in relation to Arthur there; and your winter colors are lovely. Do you think you are going to post the story here?

Thank you and no. I generally don't publish my storys on the internet and since they are in german most people here wouldn't understand them anyway :)
