60 seconds of fame
Butter flies were whizzing around in my stomach like F1 racing cars. All of a sudden the curtains slowly drifted open the audience was as silent as a cave in winter. The smoke gradually started to pump out. Suddenly our music started.
I was in a year 5 and 3 production, it was about 8’oclock at night the sky was as dark as space. On the data show was a spooky graveyard. I was dressed as a bat in a dull black costume I moved swiftly onto stage and started twisting and turning. I put my best foot forward and tried as hard as possible in our dance, suddenly I heard the bells and made my way to the freaky zombies.
When I slowly weaved off I thought we had only been dancing for a few seconds! I was so over joyed that I never had to do that humiliating dance again. When everyone in our class finished dancing the exciting song you’ll be in my heart started. Oh, sorry I meant unexciting. When the dull song was finally over I saw the last 2 dances. I was so bored I decided to scratch the paint off my arms. All of a sudden I heard ear piercing screams and claps I thought huh? I looked around it (the production) was over!
When I was changed out of my costume that made me feel like a fish out of water and going home were a nice bed was waiting I was thinking I have to get the annoying paint off my arms. My mum said enthusiastically “That was an awesome performance.” “Yeah I enjoyed it.” I lied.
