I lie in bed, awake, but bored, mind racing, but doubtful. "I am never going to win the singing contest!!" Sheya complained, as she kicked away her covers and raced downstairs. "Amanda and her friend are like the BEST singers in school", she sighed. She thought she had no possible way of winning the singing contest tomorrow. She wrote a song for the contest, but Sheya didn't think it was good enough. She walked to school, mind racing about the contest. Once she got to school, she immediately recognized her best friend, Miranda. "I have no possible way of winning the contest!!" Sheya complained to Miranda. "Sure you do!! After school, lets go to your house for the last practice!" Said Miranda. "Alright, but I don't think it is worth trying." After the 7th bell, Miranda met Sheya at her locker. "Let's go!" Said Miranda. They walked to her garage and started singing. Once they finished, they applauded to themselves and Miranda said, "I really thing we will win!" At the contest the next night, when it was their turn to come on stage, Sheya almost considered running away. But she didn't. Sheya and Miranda walked up to the stage, and Sheya adjusted the microphone. Behind the curtain, she saw Amanda smirking and whispering to her friends about Sheya. Sheya's eyes filled with tears, but she wiped them away, and signaled Miranda to start playing the music. Sheya and Miranda started singing. Once their song was over, they got a standing ovation, and everyone was cheering loudly for Sheya and Miranda. She smiled a little smile, did a curtsy, and walked offstage. And she almost fainted when the announcer announced "The winner is.... Miranda and Sheya!" They walked onstage and got their trophy. Everything was different now, and Sheya liked it. She knew this: She can make a difference.
