This is Manuel. He has black hair, brown skin. He also looks like a lot of the other people in his neighborhood
He wore his best close that he has. Him and Benny were waiting backstage. Manuel starts to get nervous.
After Manuel got home he got into his pajamas. Then he thinks to himself that he is relieved that the day is over. So next year he is not going to raise his hand to volunteer for the talent show. Probably.
I think that the author is a fan of La Bamba. Or into that kind of music. Since the song is old, maybe the author is to.
