I woke up at 8 in the morning to hear someone in the kitchen. I quickly put on some Hollister jogging bottoms and a Pineapple top, pulled on my converse, grabbed my phone and dance bag and made my way downstairs to find all the boys awake and eating in the kitchen. It was unusual for them to be awake at this time in the morning but I put it aside and grabbed a bowl off the side and poured myself some shreddies. I ate them in silence and when I finished, I ran upstairs and cleaned my teeth, went back downstairs, double checked my dance bag then went to leave the house.
"See you later boys" I shouted into the living room only to receive a big hug from all of the boys and a load of 'good luck's and 'you'll do great!'s.
"Ta boys, see you later!" I said
"BYE HOLLY" They all shouted at me, I laughed and got in my car then drove until I reached the theater I would audition in. I went into the changing rooms to find about 50 other girls in there and the nerves suddenly hit me like a tonne of bricks. I pulled out my white tights and put them on then pulled on my leotard which was new for the occasion. It was blood red and long lacy sleeves . Then I tied up my pointes and walked into the foyer where the other girls were waiting to audition.
"Holly Scott" Was called into the foyer and I suddenly felt ill but that was just nerves right?! I walked onto the stage where there were 3 people sat before me and they were the people to impress.
"Hello, I'm Holly Scott and I attend the Royal Ballet School of London and have been for a year now. I will be auditioning for the part of Clara in the Nutcracker" I stated loud and clear and confidently. The 3 people in the seats nodded and signaled for me to start.
The music started and I began to dance. I needed this! I deserved it right! I moved and danced like there was no tomorrow and I smiled and remembered everything. I felt so free. There are no words to describe how dance makes me feel. When I dance I forget everything. My parents. My brother. Even Joe. No one can hurt me here. No one can touch me.
When I finished the 'judges' murmured among themselves.
"Very well done Holly, I can tell you practiced that lots, we will call you in the next few days" One of the judges said.
"Thank-you" I said and walked off the stage into the changing rooms once again to pull on my top, joggers and converse. I grabbed my bag and went to my car in the parking lot. I put the keys in the car to unlock it when I heard some-one clapping behind me. I turned around to see Joe clapping me. He looked drunk. And stoned for that matter. I just froze. I should have run.
"Well done Holly darling, that was impressive work I just saw!" He said, wait, he was watching me! He began to step closer until I realized the silver in his hand. I jumped into my car locking it from the inside and drove off as fast as I could and looked behind me. Only to see Joe waving at me with the silver in his hand. With the knife in his hand.
