well she tryed
Jing-me´s mother wanted her to be in a prodigy because back in china she had two other daughters that died so she wants the best for Jing-me but when she was watching TV once she saw a girl playing a piano so she told Jing-me she should be a pinoist.
I wish you werent my mother
¨to late to change this¨
Once her mom saw the girl on TV she asked Mr. Chong who used to be a piano teacher to teach Jing-me for and exchange of her cleaning his house. so once Jing-me started the lessons she soon realized Mr. Chong was death, so she started to slack off.
When it was time for Jing-me to go up and preform at her recital she was quite confident she felt like she new all the notes. But she was so focused on how she looked and what people wold think of her that she hit a wrong key and another until the entire song was out of order.
she was terrible
A while after the recitle her mom said nothing but when Jing-me thought she was done her mom said to go back to piano practice then Jing-me got mad and let evering she had come out and insulted her mother mutiple times until she said one thing that broke her mother.
After Jing-mes mother died she went back to her house to clean things up for her dad and she found her old piano so she fixed it up then she sat down and started to play and surprisingly the notes came back to her instantly.
