When I was around 11, I started to really like old-time classic music. So I really wanted to go to a friend's house, Joel's house, because he played classic music on his piano. I was really happy to hear my Mom say I could. So I got on my bike and started to go over there.
When I finally got there Joel let me in, went over to his piano, and played. He played for around 15 minutes then took a break. Joel was in his bedroom and me in the kitchen trying to find something to eat, when I heard a piano playing. I thought it was Joel because it was coming from the living room (where the piano was).
When I heard the piano I went into the living room and I saw 2 men. One guy playing the piano who looked around15 yrs old (he was VERY handsome) and another guy on the floor who was just listening- he looked around 20. I thought he might have been family of Joel. "You're very good" is the only thing I said. The piano guy took a quick look at me( he had blue eyes with black hair), and turned his head over to the stairs. Joel was walking down.
I ran over to the stairs, looked at Joel and pointed at the 2 men and said "Your family is really good!" But when I turned my head I saw no one. The 2 men were gone. I asked him if he heard the piano playing and he replied with a no which confused me. I asked him if he had family over. Again, he said no. I asked him if he knew a guy with black hair and blue eyes. Surprisingly, he said yes. He said it was an ancestor that died long ago. I was surprised, he actually knew his ancestors. I knew none of mine but Joel said his name was Nicholas.
I was really happy I got to meet Nicholas but I don't know why I could see and hear him and Joel couldn't hear him. And I don't know why Nicholas and the other man left. But I was happy I got to listen to their music because the piano sounded wonderful.
I'm grateful for that day. I don't know why exactly, but I am. I always wish I could listen to Nicholas' piano playing again. I know that sounds VERY weird, but it's true. It sounded much different then what you hear nowadays. Whenever I go to Joel's house I can still sense someone there. I have yet to see Nicholas again, but I wish I could listen to his music one more time or at least Joel play more music like that.
