The Ballerina

 

''i'm a ballerina, a pretty pretty ballerina,'' she softly sang a children's song to herself. no... it wasn't right. she wasn't a ballerina anymore.
she should have rested; but the performance was calling her name. dancing on her ankle hurt--but the heavy clapping at the end of her solo had been worth it. 
but short-term injury quickly turned to long-term, and now she couldn't dance anymore.
oh, how stupid she had been. one performance, just one missed and she could have still been dancing.
hot tears began to run down her face. 
wiping her eyes, she twirled in her tutu one more time. pain shot through her ankle.

    1. I did get it from Pinterest {gosh, Pinterest is great}. Thank you so much! I dance and I know that's how I'd feel if I was ever injured too heavily to dance again.

    2. It is, isn't it? Hours fly by just scrolling through the endless amazing pictures..:) I actually rode about a year or two ago, but got a really bad fall. After that, my parents were too scared to let me ride again :( But I know they mean well-- I just really miss riding and horses. But thankfully I might volunteer at a stable that specializes in teaching mentally disabled kids to ride horses. I haven't felt whole-- like a piece of myself is missing-- since that fall. I guess my window was opened!! :)

    3. It may be a while, though, because I'm not writing anything worth publishing. -.- Also, I want to be in my early twenties when I publish just so I have more writing experience.
      I'm doing a report on England for my geography class, and guess what English people call cupcakes. Fairy cakes. -bursts into sparkles- I AM NOW FOREVER CALLING CUPCAKES FAIRY CAKES.
