I waited for that call.
I wondered what kind of part I would get, but I hoped that I would be proven wrong given my history of playing certain types of characters.
To make sure I wasn’t freaking out, I started to read some fantasy books I loaned at the library. It was great to do that whenever I wasn’t doing homework or acting in these plays I was a part of. I had a theatre scholarship, so it was just part of the plan.
My phone rang and I ditched the book and picked it up.
“Hello?” My voice wavered.
“Hey, Darina. We finally decided which character you’ll be.”
My heart sped up when I heard this.
“You’re going to be the Dragon Witch.”
I covered the phone to make sure they didn’t hear me sigh in disappointment.
“Okay, then. Thank you.”
