"Hi, Reese! Nice to meet you. I'm Janet. Jenni's twin!" Janet held out her hand.
I shook in return.
I glanced around at the three girls. Jennifer was the nervous type, boy, I could tell.
"So…I was watching you sing, Eliza, you were amazing! You too, Janet and Jenni." I grinned.
"Are you nervous?" Janet asked me.
"Actually, no." I had to admit I was shaking from head to toes when I stepped up there. But now, I had actually gained confidence.
As we entered, children were all around. I noticed a boy, freckles and all, sitting all alone in a corner.
I looked at all the other kids. "Eliza," I began. "Do you know him?" I asked.
"Oh him? That's Mickey Barker. I've tried to talk to him, but he's just too shy. Wanna have a go, Reese?" Eliza nudged me.
I approached him. "Hi! You're Mickey Barker, right? I didn't get too see your audition."
He looked up. I guess he didn't want to talk, because he just smiled.
"Are you ok?"
"S-sure." He stuttered, standing up.
"Good. What did you sing?
Eliza walked up with Jenni and Janet. "Why don't you come and join us?" She motioned to all the other kids.
He was a nice kid. I just hoped he didn't feel uncomfortable with a bunch of girls.
I liked it here already. Mickey hesitantly stood up. "Ok. I guess it would be ok."
Kyla, wanna have a go?
