My inspiration for this story came when I bought a Nokia Lumia cell phone and chose the haunting “Silver” ringtone. I thought it sounded like a haunted music box, and that made me think that I needed to come up with a plot along those lines. I’ve heard full orchestration versions of this haunting tune, but my ringtone sounds like a steel-stringed zither or some sort of hammered string instrument overlying a mellow music box accompaniment. YouTube has my version, if you want to listen to my inspiration: m DOT youtube DOT com/watch?v=8A9UGKdgS-8 (Remember to delete spaces and insert regular period symbol in place of the word DOT.)
