Anna asked me one day to teach her the piano.
Anna loved music and wanted to rehearse a sonata for her father.
Anna was making progress and looking forward to playing the sonata for her father.
One day, Anna was satisfied with her piano-playing skills and wanted to play the sonata for her father.
Anna asked her father to sit next to her while she played her sonata for him.
I still feel the tug at my heartstrings at the memory of how vehemently her father rebuffed his little daughter's request for him to sit beside her at the piano.
So Anna played her sonata with her father standing in the doorway.
