Chapter 224 – Autistic Piano Girl vs. Private Tutor (21)
Mother Tang almost dropped her chopsticks. “Zhaozhao……”
She was shocked but happy as she looked over at her son, who was standing at Gu Shengyin’s side. All of his focus was on Ning Zhao.
This was great. She raised her hand to wipe away tears from the corners of her eyes. Her son finally received some happiness1.
While the Tang family members were living harmoniously, Yang Huiying’s life was very rough.
She was graduating next year and had to watch as each of her classmates were brought out by their tutors to participate in concerts. Not to mention those who had already signed contracts for positions in orchestras, but she herself had not had any offers.
With her tutor’s side a dead end, she tried to recommend herself.
Unfortunately, the low-grade orchestras were not good enough for her, but for the high-grade orchestras, she wasn’t good enough.
Also, for her graduation next year, every graduating student was required to produce a piece of their own music. The music institution would select the best piece to be performed at their graduation.
Yang Huiying was the music institution’s top student from Z Country on campus. There would surely be many famous top musicians and orchestras invited to the students’ graduation. Those who managed to be chosen to perform on their graduation stage all had brilliant futures.
But she……Yang Huiying looked down at the white paper under her hand. In a fit of irritation, she crumpled the paper into a ball and threw it into the trashcan.
She was supposed to begin preparing her graduation piece, but her heart was unfocused. How could she create good music?
“Huiying, I’m going to go to West Sea Orchestra to intern! Have you found a place to intern at yet?” The one speaking was Xiao Lin, her dormmate. Xiao Lin and Yang Huiying had never seen eye to eye. This time, she spoke with the intention of kicking her when she’s down.
Out of the four dormmates, only Yang Huiying was still running around searching.
Yang Huiying faked a smile. “Not yet. There were a few small orchestras that didn’t meet my requirements, so I refused them. I’m still not in a rush right now.”
It was clearly that she couldn’t find a good one, but she’s still putting up such a haughty attitude! Xiao Lin sneered before she finished her brows with one smooth motion and lifted her bag and left.

She was the only one left in the dorm room. Yang Huiying fretfully clutched at her hair before burying her head deep into her arms.
In the end, she had to choose a small orchestra. She had no other choice and she couldn’t just stay at the music institution forever.
This way, she could have an audience and slowly build up her experience; she comforted herself.
The small orchestra didn’t have many rules, but they didn’t have fixed performances either. Oftentimes, there were several days or even half a month without opportunities to perform. Sometimes, when they chanced upon good business, they would go for several days without a break.
Yang Huiying was about to go crazy. Every day, she was dead tired. After returning in the evening, where would she find the inspiration to compose?
The small orchestra finally recruited a student from a famous music institution. The conductor was proud and would make her perform every time.
Yang Huiying felt like she was a circus’ caged monkey attraction. More than once, she regretted her blind decision. If she had known how it would be earlier, she would have gone to a large orchestra to do miscellaneous work instead of this.
However, the contract had already been signed. No matter how much she hated it, she could only endure.
At the Tang family mansion, the sound of piano music would float out every day. Day by day, the music would be brisker. Ning Zhao was already recovering at a very high speed.
She could now communicate regularly with people, though she often just watches them. Also, she was Tang Qian’s new piano teacher……although, most of the time, it was only her playing and Tang Qian was standing to the side watching and listening.
When Old Zhang came to the Tang family home and saw Gu Shengyin’s state, he said in shock that this was definitely a miracle.
