Coral's Letter

One

This afternoon, I was in my room, playing with my cats. My friend Coral was on her way over to eat dinner while her au pair had the night off.

Two

I heard a voice and turned- there was Coral!

"Inky!" she called. "My letter came! I'm scared to open it! Did I get into the summer intensive or not?"

Three

In Coral's hand was a letter addressed to her from her #1 choice of ballet school. Coral had already heard positive replies from two other schools, but she really wanted to attend my school.

Four

"Open it!" I said. "It's better to know than it is not to know."

Five

Coral walked over to the bed with the letter in her fingers, her hand trembling.

Six

"Okay," replied Coral, "here I go!"

Seven

Coral took a deep breath and opened the letter. She scanned her eyes over the page nervously.

Eight

"I'm in!" she cheered. "I got into the top ballet school in the United States!"

Nine

I'm so happy for Coral! If she does well at the Summer Course, she might be asked to stay at the school for the rest of the year. Coral had missed the regular auditions in the fall, since she had just moved to the US- so the summer program was her big chance. She did it! Go Coral! Have you ever worked for something really hard- and then it came to be?

  1. Congrats, Coral! I remember when I won a big skating competition last year. I was so nervous and had worked so hard. I was so happy when I got to bring home two first place medals!

    1. Hi Mel!
      Coral's striped dress was handmade out of one of my Mama's favorite t-shirts by Dynamite Threads. I get my leotards from Dynamite Threads too. :) However, the leos from Terristouch are excellent quality.

  5. Congratulations Coral! When my sister Samantha won a dance competition, she was amazed! I'm sure that Coral feels the same way. It's great that you get to go to the same dance school now!

    Love,
    Reese <3

    P.S. I love your cats! They are so much littler than my giant kitten Praline. :)

  7. Yay for Coral! I worked really hard in dance, singing, and theatre! Most came to be. I'm an artist, like for drawing, so when I get accepted into prestigious art camps, I am always excite and on edge too!

  8. That's great! I bet she worked really, really hard to get in! Tell her I'm so happy for her! Once I had never auditioned for a musical at a really good theatre near me, and I practiced really hard and got in! Good luck, Coral!
