Brothers and sisters normally do not get along, especially as young adolescents. Mitra and Cyrus were no exception but for those times when they sat together at the piano and played a duet.
Magically then, all animosity and competition disappeared, and their faces showed the joy that music can bring. For at such times, music can break down the barriers that separate people, even brothers and sisters who at other times might fight like cats and dogs.
Happy music and art, Cinder LeDell
