“Calm down Kelly, you’ll be fine.”
“You really think so?” she asked.
“I KNOW so.”
“Were you this nervous your first time? I feel like I’ve swallowed a whole colony of butterflies.” She said as she held her hand over her stomach.
“That’s only natural,” Kevin said as he stood behind Kelly Ann, who was looking at her reflection in the large mirror in her makeshift dressing room. Kevin leaned down and put his arms around Kelly, “But I know you, and there’s nothing you love more than a challenge. Trust me, you have nothing to worry about.”
Kelly blushed but smiled. She knew Kevin was right. He usually was but she could help but feel anxious. This was what she’d spent almost her whole life dreaming about and now that the moment had finally arrived she was so scared she didn’t think she’d be able to go threw with it.
“Miss Swartz please.” Called a voice.
“This is it,” smiled Kevin, “knock ‘em dead.” Then he kissed Kelly for luck and she walked out on to the stage.

|“Why haven’t they called?” questioned Kelly as she walked around the house nervously.
“honey it’s only been two days and they’ve got a lot of people to see.” Mary said as she tried to comfort her daughter.
“Kelly you have a great voice and you’re a wonderful dancer, don’t worry.” Greg Johnson was Kelly’s new step-father and a really great guy. He and Mary had met a few months after she and Kelly had seen CATS for the first time. They were both theater fans and had met one night while in the parking lot of one of the local theaters, they were all going in to see “Phantom of the Opera” touring company. And even though they had only been married for six months Kelly was thankful that her mother had married such a wonderful, kind, loving and giving man.
Greg was a family doctor and a Sunday school teacher at his local church. He and Kelly Ann hit it off from the moment they had met. “Thanks Greg,” said Kelly as she hugged him. “But it still doesn’t stop me from worrying.”
There was a knock at the door and Kelly was so tense that she jumped. “I’ll get it,” said Mary as she headed to the front door. As she opened the door Kevin came spilling in. He had been leaning on the door at the very moment Mary had opened it. “Are you alright?” she asked as she helped him up.
Kevin just laughed, “Oh yea I’m fine.” He said as he gave her a hug and a kiss on the cheek.
“Well, any word yet?”
