In the beginning of the story Manuel was walking to school. Then when he was in school and the teacher asked if anybody wanted to be in the talent show, and he raised his hand. But he does not know why he rasied his hand because he does not want to do it.

He did not have time to practice for the talent show. But the only time when he could practice was in the shower!
When he got ready and he was backstage he got nervous and really sweaty. And when he started singing he started to dance. When he was singing and dancing he noticed his brother was wearing his faforite shirt and said he was going to punch him. But he did not punch him.
