The Silver shoes

The package came, I didn't order anything so it took me by surprise, the brown crispy paper was neatly bent over a box, I shook it eagerly, I picked it up carrying it inside as I laid it on the small oak table in the centre of the main room. I carefully undid the wrapping to reveal a delicate, cardboard box in red, I sighed slowly opening the lid. Gasping at the beautiful red point shoes. They had small patterns in silver running along the side. I was amazed. Underneath was a small envelope, it was cream coloured with a purple seal of a ballet dancer doing a pirouette, I slowly opened it to find a small note in purple swirly hand writing, 'you have true talent'. I flipped the little card over to find that it said, 'you have been excepted at Ruby Red Ballet School, please join us every day at 5p.m. I smiled, looking at the shoes.


1. The Ballet Shoes

...Three Year's Before...

"But I love ballet!" I cried, the tears gushed down my cheeks. "Why does Alex get to continue football?" I cried so hard, I knew it was hard for my parents to get money, but I was bad at everything, apart from ballet, and that Alex got to continue football was so unfair. "Look, Vanessa, I know you love ballet, but be realistic, who is going to be able to get a job with these talents the two of you have?"

"What do you mean, I can't get money from playing football.David Beckham gets like 50 million a year!"shouted Alex my younger brother.I ran to my room. I knew I couldn't change my dads mind.I decided to run away,I knew it would be crazy, but it was what I wanted, so I started planning my trip.
