As soon as I got home, I rushed upstairs and grabbed my pointe shoes. I
practiced everyday after school. It was like a routine I had going on. I
woke up, went to school, came home ( or to Lakedale Dance Academy),
practiced, ate, crammed in on my homework, and crashed.
As I put on my left shoe however. I realized that I hadn't told Jamie about
Kirsten and Gordon coming, and I still wasn't sure if Gordon was even
coming. I didn't really feel like calling him, but durin English class the
guy had given me his phone number, and it wouldn't be right to just to have
the two of them show up Friday without him even knowing. Hezittantly, I
grabbed the phone, and dialed his number.
"Hello?," came a voice. It sounded like his mother. Oh great! She would
think I was some admirer or something!
"um, yes, is Jamie there. This is Anna," I said.
"Oh, so your this Anna I've heard so much about. Just a minute sweetie,"
she said into the phone. I heard her yell Jamie's name at the top of her
In a few minutes, Jamie was on the line. "Hey Anna, what's new for you in
the past ten minutes?"he asked.
"Oh, nothing really,"I answered.
"Oh, well, I can't wait until Friday,"he said.
"About that," I said. "I was talking to Kirsten about it, and she had to
come with me. But don't worry, she invited Gordon too, so you won't have to
deal with two excited girls alone."
He laughed At the joke, even though it wasn't at all funny. "Well, is that
all you wanted to tell me?"
"well, yes, actually. I just didn't want you to be freaking out when
Kirsten showed up on Friday with us," US!US! Why was I saying us! It
sounded like we were a couple or something!
"oh, okay. Hey about that English work, I'm having a little trouble on
that, do you mind helping my a little?" he asked.
"oh, no, of corse not," I said. "What do you need help on?"
I don't know exactly how long I was on the phone, but durin the whole time,
the subject changed from Adverbs to Ballet to Cheeze Puffs. I was surprised
a couple times to find myself laughing.
"Anna, time for supper," my mother yelled.
What! I Thought. I looked at the clock at the side of my bed and it
said 6:30. "Oh crap, its already supper time. Got to go. See ya Jamie
." Okay see you"
Was it just me, or were we both sad that I had to go?
~~~~~~~~~The next day in dance class~~~~~~~~~
"Okay class, you can all sit and rest. In a few minuted I'll tell you guys
who made the solo part." Buffy said to us in class. I was relieved. I was
drenched in sweat! I had worn myself out by doing so many turns. I looked
at Vikki, and didn't see any sign of her being hot or worn out at all.
"why'd you do everything so perfect today? I told you that Buffy would
probably look at the girl who worked the hardest today, and just lok at
everyone else," she said. I looked at everyone. All of them looked as if
they could run in the Olympics races and win, even Claudia, the class
flirt. For the first time ever, I felt weird in the studio.
"Class, I've thought about this a lot, and I've made my decision final.
Anna will be performing the solo with Jamie. She seems to me to be the
hardest worker, and I believe that her and Jamie would be perfect for this
part," Buffy said. Everyone clapped. As they clapped, each time their hands
touched, it felt like they were slapping me in the face, saying "I told you
"Of corse, you must agree to it first. You do realize you will have to
give up every other Saturday and a little bit of time after class. Is it
okay for you guys?"Buffy asked.
"Yes," said Jamie, his eyes showing excitement like a three year old
receiving candy. I would hate to make him disappointed.
"sure" I replied.
Author's Note: I'm sorry I haven't added this in a while. I tried to space
it out a little, and I used less detail in this chapter. I guess you can
still get the main idea. Sory if it seems to go a little fast, but all
well. Thanks for the review! I hope others enjoy this too!!!
