Let it be

sweet surprises

Vada caught herself laughing when she saw her name on the list. She kept staring at it. Could they have made a mistake? Was it really true?

She stared at her name. It was under Roman's name.

She drew a breath. She was in the lead.

"OH MY GOD." Her eyes were so bright and she couldn't help but smile more.

"You did it!" Henry was there in the hallway next to the drama room. They both did a little happy dance together over her triumph.

"What if I can't do it?" She stared into Henry's green eyes. "I've never..done this before."

"You, can do it. You can." He smiled.

Vada felt herself shaking. But she'd have to be with Roman. She bit her bottom lip as if she couldn't dare let him know that she might actually like him.

No, she would not give him the satisfaction. She would not. She didn't like anything about him. She did not like Roman.

At the moment, she felt as if she might be walking on air. This was going to be a commitment that might take away all the hard work she was doing from her other classes. She winced. Maybe she wasn't that happy, after all.

Vada is always unsure of herself, but I think she is slowly becoming more confident, even if she is still nervous about the play.
