Chapter 230 – Autistic Piano Girl vs. Private Tutor (27)
Feng-lao scrutinized Gu Shengyin.
The piece this girl was performing was evidently the [Sunshine] that he was very optimistic about!
However, just now she had very clearly said “I wrote this song for you,” implying that this song was her own creation.
Feng-lao and the chief pianist sitting at the side glanced at each other and saw the surprise in the other’s eyes.
It wasn’t just the two of them, everyone from the Lemon Tree Orchestra and even the guests present here, who were all music lovers, had listened to Yang Huiying’s [Sunshine].
When they compared the two…
The gap was too big.
When Yang Huiying had performed this piece, everyone had felt that it was breathtaking and stunning, but they still felt that something was missing. Now that they had heard Gu Shengyin’s performance, they realized that she (YHY) had not expressed this song’s soul.
The entire hall quieted down as everyone was enthralled by Gu Shengyin’s piano music. They seemed to see a girl, surrounded by an expanse of endless darkness, who couldn’t see hope, couldn’t see the future, and couldn’t see a trace of light.
She thought about committing suicide, maybe this way she could find some relief. She would no longer muddle her way through this world full of pain and struggle.
Tang Zhongyi clenched his fist tightly. He understood the meaning behind Zhao Zhao’s music. He had never thought that Zhao Zhao would actually fall apart when she learned of her parent’s death. She even thought of ending her life!
He could feel that his back was covered with cold sweat. Fortunately, fortunately God was not unkind to him. Fortunately, he had put down everything to stay at her side at that time; otherwise, he didn’t know what would have happened.
As it reached the peak of despair, the entire style of the song suddenly changed.
Someone appeared by the girl’s side. He patiently accompanied her, brought her to watch sunrises and sunsets, accompanied every minute and every second of her life, and brought her to see all the wonderful things in the world.
Little by little, he brought light into her world and pulled her out of that endless darkness.
He was her salvation.

By the end of the piece, Gu Shengyin’s face was covered in tears.
Tang Zhongyi couldn’t bear it anymore and rushed over to hold her tightly in his embrace.
“How could you, how could you…” He was choked with emotion and buried his head deep into Gu Shengyin’s neck, hiding his reddened eyes.
The Tang family members eyes also reddened. They had watched every step of Ning Zhao’s journey and could naturally understand the profound emotion in her composition most deeply.
“Pa pa…” The applause in the beginning was scattered. In the end, all the guests gave a standing ovation.
Feng-lao also stood up. He watched Gu Shengyin exuberantly, as if he had discovered a rare treasure.
The chief pianist’s appearance was not much different from him. He completely forgot his previous dissatisfaction and began to ponder how he could make Gu Shengyin his apprentice.
As for Yang Huiying, they had already removed her from their minds.
As composers, the true versus false and who the real composer was, was already clear at a glance.
Without real experience, who would be able to create such a composition that would stun the world like Gu Shengyin?
Tang Zhongyi coughed and straightened out his emotions before gently pulling Gu Shengyin’s hand.
Gu Shengyin went along with his motion and stood.
“Thank you for letting us use your piano.” Tang Zhongyi said to Lemon Tree Orchestra’s chief pianist.
The pianist was very amiable this time: “It doesn’t matter. There’s no need to be so polite. If Miss Ning Zhao needs to use it again, she can come find me again.”
( ´•̥̥̥ω•̥̥̥` ) *pulls out tissue and dabs eyes* Karma shall slap that B in the face! Soon!
Whenever I see “pa pa” as an onomatopoeia, I always think of it as spanking sounds
Yikes, JMin ！(◎_◎;)
