Dhum….dhum… heard the voices from the room upstairs.
“What is that noise? ” asked peter.
“I have no idea Peter, maybe they might be running around.” said Sylvia.
Sylvia stood up from the chair,peeped through the curtain saw Samo and Simon busy in the garden.
“Peter, Simon and Samo are in the garden. Where is this sound coming from then? Sofi! Shouted Sylvia but came no reply.
“It’s ok, I will go check out.” said Peter. He walked upstairs. As he moved closer the sound seemed increasing probably like heavy foot steps.
The room upstairs was closed and mild music from the radio kept coming out of the room.
“Sofi ! Where are you? Said Peter.
He got the knob of the door and opened gently without making a noise. He peeped into room and he saw little princes. He kept quite rushed down stairs and called Sylvia to come over with him upstairs.
“What is it Peter? Where is Sofi ?!” Sylvia asked.
“Ssshhh!! Just be quite, I will show you something” said him.
They both looked into the room. They were astonished to see the five year old Sofi dancing to the beats of the Slovakian music from the radio. She moved to the beats in so much co ordinance. She danced with lot passion with what a five year can dance. They kept staring at her dance with so much of happiness.
“Sofi! ” said Sylvia.
She stopped quickly and ran towards the curtain with shy.
“Sofi, come out you danced so well.Good girl” said Peter.
Sylvia pulled her out of the curtain and kissed her.
“Do you want to learn dance? ” asked Peter.
Nodded the little girl with her head for the big yes.
“From where did you learn those steps?, it was beautiful” asked Peter.
“Dada, I saw the beautiful ladies dancing at the ball day before yesterday. I wanted to dance like them” smiled Sofia.
“Sure, I shall make you join a dance academy, now it’s time for some food, you must really hungry little princess” said Peter and they walked downstairs.
