I never should have signed up for this talent show. I should have just keep my hand down like everyone else. At least I can hang out with Benny before the rehearsal, and show Benny my act.
I showed him my act and he suggested I dance too. A little bit later when Benny was rehearsing he played the trumpet so loud I dropped my record. I was really worried it had broke, but when I got over to it it looked okay.
It's my turn to go up on to the stage I'm super worried. This is so embarrassing the record got stuck, and everyone is laughing at me. I don't want to go back on the stage, but when I went back out I got the biggest cheer of all! Everyone wants to talk to me. This talent show was amazing.
