It Started With A Dream.
Corrina Robertson

In Arkansas,there was a 14 year old girl named Jenny.Jennifer had dark brown hair,down to her shoulders,freckles,pointy nose,elf ears,and a small lips.Yeah,not the girl next door.But she had a great personality.
She was very smart and probably had the highest grades in her whole school.But her dream was to be the head cheerleader at school.She knew nothing about cartwheels,flips,turns,pom poms,or twists.But the one thing that she knew is that she wanted to be one.So,next day were tryouts for cheerleading.She was nervous.She had one day to learn the tricks and trades of cheerleading.Her 15 year old sister,Mandy,was co captain of the cheerleading team but her and her sister never got along but she was bold enough to go to her and ask for her help.
"Ugh no!Why would I help you?"Said Mandy.Jenny,didn't question it anymore,she just walked away.So she decided tat she would try to learn on her own.Not the best idea in the cook book!She tried a cartwheel.Instead of making a 360,she made a 90 angle and fell.She kept trying and she feel on her arm and broke it.She had to go to the hospital and get a cast for it.
"Darn!Now I can't try out tomorrow!"She exclaimed.A couple of days after the cast was put on her,she went back home.
"I've already missed tryouts!"She said.However,when she went back to school,she saw a paper on the wall.It read "Cheerleading tryouts have been scheduled for next friday."
"What?"She exclaimed in question.She still had a broken arm.And of course she still wanted to try out.Despite the broken arm,she was determine that she was going to try out for cheerleading and make it on the squad,and be the head cheerleader.
Friday came and she still had a broken arm.There were so many people in the room when she walked through the doors.She saw a girl with long blonde hair with blue eyes and a tanned body and another with short black hair with green eyes,that was real skinny,another with red hair with green eyes that was stubby,another with long brown hair and green eyes and she had been head cheerleader for two consecutive years.And she even saw her sister there along with a lot of other girls of varieties.The nervousness in her stomach and the butterflies in her stomach became even noticable.She was the only one with a broken arm.
Well after seeing all of the other girls try out,it was finally her time to try out.
"Um excuse me but you have a broken arm.....but if you wish to try out,go ahead but if you injure yourself anymore that what you already have then we are not responsible."Said the cheerleading tryout coach.Jenny leaped!Jenny tumbled!With a broken arm at that and she did better than all of the girls combined!But it was up to the judge and it all depended on her decision.
So after she was done,she sat back down.It was at least a whopping 20 minutes before the list was posted.The anxiety was feeding on Jenny's patience.
Finally,the list was posted and a hoard of girls flew to the white pieace of paper.Jenny read and read and couldn't find her name.She searched and searched,She walked away with the biggest grimance on her face.All of a sudden,girls were coming up to her patting on the back and congradulating her on making cheerleading captain.Jenny stood in awe.She went back to the piece of paper hanging on the wall and she realized that she had missed the names on the top.
Jenny was the first name on the list and she leaped for joy.
Even her sister congradulated her.All of her hard work paid off.After a couple of weeks,her broken arm healed.She became one of the most popular girls at her school.It started with a dream.
