Patricia’s question, ” Are you a pianist too?” suddenly awakened Mark, he realized he was not friendly with Tracy’s cousin.
He was embarrassed when the question was directed to him, he instantly replied, “Yes I am a pianist, not as brilliant as your cousin.”
Patricia was in a mood to extend their conversation, within seconds she gathered enough courage to ask him to teach her to get better in playing the piano.
Mark was unable to make an excuse, why he couldn’t tutor her, reluctantly he agreed, Patricia was delighted to have someone who would regularly teach her, she learned the basics from her cousin she wanted to make a career out of it.
