“I don’t feel like talking today, if it’s all the same you,” he said quietly.
“Do as you please, Hercules,” she responded equally quietly.
“Can I just sit here without talking?” he asked.
“Of course,” she replied.
“Can I press on the keys and make sounds?”
“Sure. Why not?”
“Can I sing?” he asked.
Then he giggled to himself. He knew he couldn’t sing.
“If you’d like to sing, by all means sing,” she said.
“I think I’ll sit here quietly and not talk anymore,” he said
“That will be fine,” she said with a smile.
