Julie sat at her laptop, smiling. School had let out the day before, and she was anxious to start the tradition she'd begun two summers ago: playing mahjongg while listening to her favorite pianist, Yiruma.
She had discovered him entirely by accident. She had been listening to a random video on YouTube (she didn't even remember what it was), and found a video entitled Kiss the Rain in the Related Videos section. Julie thought it was a nice title, so she clicked.
Julie was absolutely floored. Yiruma was skilled, but it was so much more than that. His music seemed to speak to her in the very depths of her soul... a place where no one but God could reach. Or, in this case, God working through His creation of Yiruma's talent.
The mahjongg part... Julie wasn't entirely sure how that even began. But the game was peaceful and relaxing, even as she constantly tried to top her best times. And somehow, whenever she combined the two...
It was summer magic.
