"Oh I would love to come, but I have a dinner with my family," Louis explained.
As soon as Lidia had called the end of rehearsal the young girl had approached the piano to ask him if he would go out with her the following Saturday. Louis wasn't sure if it was one of those flirtatious moments Lidia claimed to witness from the girls every now and then, but he was certainly glad to have an excuse to refuse the girl's invitation.
He and Lidia had been seeing each other for the past two months. Of course, it was a very limited version of seeing each other as they were not to be seen in public nor had the woman been inclined to let him do anything to her other than kissing her, but nevertheless the young man was completely devoted to her. What had once been obliviousness regarding young women's interest had now turned into complete blindness due to lack of interest.
"Yes, maybe next time. I'll see you tomorrow." He said as the obviously disappointed young woman left the studio. Finally alone with Lidia, he stood from behind the piano. "It wasn't bad. I think we should able to do the full sequence by next week."
