I don’t know why, but he wouldn’t look at me. I was getting scared about this,because he
looked at me. It was a double period of Music, and it was half way through second period. He hasn’t looked at me the whole time.‘’Right, it’s time for a performance. Who should we have today?’’ Mr Autumnasked the class.Everyone pointed at me, while Katy, my best friend, was jumping up and downshouting my name. I grimaced as I realised I’d have to perform. This was the firsttime I’d ever performed, and everyone else had already done it. I was terrified.‘’Madeline, why don’t you perform for us today?’’ Mr Autumn said, smiling at me.I sighed, both with relief and despair. I was relieved that he’d finally looked atme, but I was so scared about performing. I grabbed an acoustic guitar from theside of the room, and sat on a stool in front of the class.‘’This song is by my favourite band, All Time Low. It’s called RememberingSunday. I’m going to change the lyrics a bit so I don’t sound like a lesbian.’’ Imuttered.I began strumming the guitar, playing every chord perfectly. I began to sing, andhad the attention of everyone in the room. When I got to the chorus, I lookedright in to Mr Autumn’s eyes.‘Forgive me, I’m trying to find my calling, I’m calling at night. I don’t mean to bea bother, but have you seen this boy? He’s been running through my dreams,and it’s driving me crazy, it seems. I’m gonna ask him to marry me.’ I sang withall my heart.I finished the song and looked up at everyone. They were all silent. Katy’s mouthwas hanging open in shock.‘’Um, was that okay?’’ I whispered across the room.Mr Autumn started clapping really loudly, causing the rest of the class to join in.Everyone started screaming and cheering ridiculously loud, I may as well playedat Wembley Stadium. Mr Autumn ran over to me with a huge grin on his face.‘’That was
Why haven’t you performed before? Your voice is beautiful.’’He whispered in my ear. His neck was close enough to kiss.‘’Um, thanks, but I’m really not that goo-‘’‘’Stay behind after this lesson is over, okay? You can go out to break if you
want, but I’d love for you to sing me some more songs!’’ Mr Autumn interrupted.I nearly screamed in excitement. I’d rather stay with him all break than gooutside.‘’Sure.’’ I said with a smile.
