Have you written a Six Sentence Story yet? It's a lot of fun! This week's prompt: Step.
If only the teacher would have seen her hand timidly rise when asked who wanted to play the raggedy Cinderella in the third grade class play! The only other hand that went up was that of her best friend, though, so rather than call out to alert the teacher that she wanted the part, she remained quiet and allowed her friend to claim the role. The post-fairy godmother Cinderella was out of the question, of course, because she just wasn't that girly of a girl. None of the other roles seemed attractive, either, so she didn't volunteer for any of them. As everyone had to participate, though, she got stuck with a part, and found herself resigned to having to dance with a boy! One-two-three, One-two-three; the waltz required concentration, not to mention holding hands.
Thanks for opportunities to step outside one's comfort zone.
