Manuel was the fourth out of seven in his house. He was starting to regret his decision to do the talent show. He wanted to do the talent show for the attention and for the girls. He hoped that a girl named Petra Lopez would finally notice him.
Later in the day when they worked on the talent show when it was Manuel's turn the record got stuck! The teacher said " I will for sure have a working record player for the talent show don't worry." Next when it was Benny's turn he played so loud he droped the record. Thank god it didn't scrach.
The Night of the talent show was starting great. It was almost time for him to go out on stage. After three first graders finished it was his turn. It was fine till the end when the record got stuck on the last lyric. the teacher finally stopped it by then his fate was sealed. Everyone loved it they all thought it was funny. The End
