I Have What It Takes

My name is Dani. I'm 13 years old. The crowd roars with aplause as I step on to the stage. I'm only 13. It seems like I have come so far. What if it all ends in dissapointment. After all I am not suppost to be here. My fiingers instinctivly wrap around the microphone. I take a deep breath. This is the X-factor finals.
(This is for the M-Factor competition)


10. The House

The riskiest thing to do. I know. Probably the stupidest thing to do too. The stupidest song to choose, the dumbest way to impress a judge.

I swallowed hard as I took the steps up to where I would perform. It seemed as if everytime I stepped closer to the victory, I just have one more challenge.

"Hi Dani" Demi says. I begin to sweat. My hands bring themselves to my leg. I wipe the sweat off onto my shorts. What do I do? I think to myself. I'm not quite sure. I never really planned. All of these years I had watched the show, and now that it was me. Now that I am the girl that thousands of people are watching, I don't know what to do.

"Hi...Demi nice to see you again" I laugh nervously. I gulp and step up to the light.

To my left, there is a fence and a camera crew. They have set up near the palm trees for efect. How many have been before me? On this very floor? In this very spot? How many have had their dreams come true? How many are now famous and have their faces posted on the walls of hundredes, thousands, of fans? Who was next? Was it the girl who went before me? Was it the girl after me? Was it Ethan? Was it me?

Who ever it was. Whatever was to come. All that mattered now was this moment. This next song.

"Dani, you may begin." She says trying to draw my attention.

It is like learning to walk again. The moment you realize how far you are from your dreams. I have to take babysteps until the pace of my dreams begin to accelerate. Faster and faster, time flys until you know you have reached it.

It was like a spark. The moment I realised I had it all.

"The day I, first met you, you told me you'd never fall in love..." I began singing.

Demi turned her head. Her light hair brushing the side of her hair almost fictionaly.

She was startled.

"But now that, I get you, I know fear, is what it really was..."

Her expression slowly begins to fade into a smile.

"Now here we are, so close, yet so far, haven't I passed the test?" I continue.

I slowly begin to realise that these words. They describe how I feel.

When will I pass the test? It seams like I have. So many times already.

"When will you realize, Baby I'm not like the rest." I continue.

"Don't wanna break your heart, wanna give your heart a break, I know your scared it's wrong like you might make a mistake."

I can see her trying to restrain from singing along. I wish she would. Maybe it would make me feel a little less nervous. Maybe it would be the chance of a lifetime.

"There's just one life to live and theirs no time to waste. So let me give your heart a break, your heart a break, let me give your heart a break your heart a break oh yea yea." I sing.

I finish up the song in what seems like a lifetime
