It was time. My time to shine. Minuet and Country dance. I’d prepared for this since Christmas. I trembled as I opened the door. I potentially opened the door to my career. The usher led me to the universe-size stage. The audience was hungry for a performance. Then I heard it. A D on the piano. The audience roared as I finished Country dance. I bowed and then scurried like a hamster off the stage. The results. I totally forgot them! I ended up with a stunning honorable mention. I jumped for joy like a Mexican jumping bean. But wait did I really get an honorable mention in a world piano competition? Yes I had. That was a true magical moment.
