"Watching" by Shelby McQuilkin
She sits resting, watching the other dancers, waiting for her next part. She’s enjoying a moment to breathe, to think about what comes next. She’s a seasoned dancer, not a young impatient beginner. She still gets nervous before a performance, but she’s mature enough to handle her emotions. She’s performed many times and still has many performances left in her. She watches the other dancers knowing her hard work and determination has brought her to where she always dreamed she would be.
