National Dance Auditions

I knew Sophie was really the best dancer of all of us: she got treated like she wasn’t though. She finished her routine with a high kick and a turn. I clapped (loudly) but Amanda just sighed at her; as if she wasn’t impressed. Poor Sophie backed down into the corner and watched other dancers audition for nationals, trying not to be jealous when Amanda complemented them.                    “Maybe I’m not a good enough,” I heard Sophie sadly sigh. I couldn’t stand it, so I walked up to her and said,                                                                                                                                          “Don’t tell my sister I said this but she’s just jealous. You’re probably the best dancer here.”                                                                                                                                  “Really? Wait a moment – Amanda’s your sister?”  Sophie questioned, intrigued.                           “Sadly…yes. Look, she’s alright once you get used to her. Trust me….she just needs some time.” I whispered sadly. I really liked Sophie, I decided. I told her my name was Cindy and a little bit about me. She followed and told me about her and here we are now…performing our duet for nationals.
