Manuel kicked the leaves as he wondered why he even rose his hand. Then he remember. It was to impress Petra Lopez, the second prettiest girl in school.
At practice for the talent show, Mr. Roybal seemed mad because the music player wasn't working. But he still reassured Manuel that it would work out even if he had to bring his own music player from home. Just then someone bumped into Manuel which sent the disc rolling across the floor.
Manuel caught up to it . He was thankful it didn't break. Later he watched the act before his and went on when he heard his name. Everything was going well. The audience seemed very impressed until the disc started to play the same line over and over again.They all laughed when he got of stage.
When he reached the hall he remembered when someone bumped into him and he dropped the disc. He was about to shout of anger when a group of people walked up to him. They said things like"That was so funny" and " how did you get the disc to stick. When he caught up on what he was saying he decided to tell the it was just luck.
