It was test day. I stepped into my ballet room.  I was so scared.  My stomach felt queasy, and my legs were stiff like pencils.  It was time to do the splits.

I stretched and pulled.  My heart was talking to me, saying, “I’m terrified!” It was beating so fast I thought it would burst.

I spread out my legs as far as I could, and I did it! My legs felt like rubber bands! I had to do the splits 7 times!

After the test, my teacher said, “Good job!” My heart felt like it was in Disneyland. I was so happy.
