At the beginning I was really excited to become a prodigy. I was even more excited than my mom. The reason why my mom wanted me to be anything I wanted to be or a prodigy because she wanted me to be the best I could be.
I want you to be anything you want because I left evrything behind in China
You could be a prodigy too
That would be really cool!!!
After I told my mom I din't want to become a prodigy anymore andafter we got into a fight we didn't speak about becoming a prodigy for the next two or three months
These test are getting too hard. I don't want to be a prodigy anymore.
Well you are going to do it.
Two or three months later
After my mom told me that she signed me up for piano lessons we got in a huge fight because I thought she didn't like me for who I am. She told me she wanted me to be the best I could be.
Why don't you love me for the way I am stop trying to change me
I signed you up for piano lessons with Mr.Chong
When I realized that Mr.Chong was deaf I found out I could be lazy and that I could get away with mistakes. I played like this for a year because he wouldn't know if I was making mistakes or not.
Very good! But now you need to learn how to keep time
Won't you and dad miss it and I probably can't play anymore either.
I want you to have the piano because you are the only one who can play it
No, we won't miss it and you are a fast learner you and you could been a genius if you want to
My mom died a few months before I finally took the piano and I tried to play it and it seemed pretty easy. I looked at the piece on the left handed side and then I looked at the right handed side and i realized they are two halves to the same song.
The girl's perspective in this part is that she can be anything she wnted to be just like her mom said.
