[ Madison is left behind as most of the guests left because he's
been pushing himself, as usual. He had a coughing fit, followed by a dizzy
fit, and he's retreated to the quieter library to just rest a little...

In the end, he leans against the door-frame,
watching Jefferson as he plays, eyes closed in memories and pain, and his
fingers and arms moving as though on their own. He tries to swallow any

ever needs it. But Madison's different.
In what way? He can't pinpoint. But he's a solid presence, like a
rock and he's not flamboyant on his affections like everyone else which

Good. And I won't touch any of it if that's what worries you.
I assumed you found the party lacking.
