With the kids occupied, Stoney and Tori pull the draping covers from their keyboards.They turn on switches, checking over the long neglected instruments. The electricity hums bringing alive lights. Their eyes gleam as keys easily move and notes echo over the sounds of playing children. It isn't until they hit the rythem switches that the little ones come running.
Stoney pulls the tie from his hair, shaking the mane loose around his shoulders. He grins at his sister from under his long dark bangs.
She grimaces, wrinkling her nose. "Dead Mau5."
He sticks his tongue out at her. "Tech Jukebox."
A shudder and sigh. "Beethoven would be better, anything but TJ."
The dark haired gargoyle bends under his keyboard, checking a connection. "T.S.O."
The redhead laughs, green eyes flashing. "Ok, Trans Siberian Orchestra. But I get to pick the first song."
She flicks a few switches, setting the beat and tone. "Flight of the Bumblebee."
Stoney laughs. "Fine, then Lauper's She Bops."
Tori frowns. "Lauper is not techno."
Stoney winks, "Will be when we play her stuff."
