Dancing Is A Curse


Hello everyone! This is my second book on Wattpad! Hope you like it!


What would you do if you were cursed to dance every night from midnight till your feet would bleed?


Would you fight the curse that you were born with or dance under its spell?


“Girls focus, focus! Abigail look where you’re putting your feet, Serafina straight back, Oh Giselle stop day dreaming and start stretching!”  demanded Mrs Night, my professional ballet teacher.


I sighed to myself as I stretched my leg on the beam resting my hand on my toes, careful to not wince every time I moved my feet so that Mrs Night wouldn’t see.


I looked over my shoulder to see Mrs Night shouting at my dance group to pay attention.


I chuckled,  watching my friends with horrified faces, trying to do leap jumps in the air but failing miserably, only to end up pulling a muscle and screaming out in pain.


I suddenly turned my attention to me feet and started to feel nauseous again.


Urgg! Same as always, wrapped in bloody bandages, hoping they would blend in unnoticed with my red ballet shoes.


People would take one look at me and think my life is perfect! Why, because I have a huge house with no one to stay in it but me and my little sister, pretty  features that make girls jealous, and well, my dancing. But, to tell the truth my life will NEVER BE ANYWHERE near perfect, it’s a living hell!


Hearing Mrs Night’s soothing voice made me snap out of my daydreaming and quickly put my long, golden, curly hair into a loose bun and started doing pirouettes trying to perfect each and every one of them.

Once an hour of ballet practise was over I huffed and puffed, trying to get my breath back.


I slung my bag over one shoulder and smiled as I saw Alice texting as she leaned against the wall waiting for me, her radiant red hair blowing in the wind.


“Ah, Miss Lucinda off in a hurry are we? I just wanted to say well done and I loved your pirouettes!” said Mrs Night with a twinkle in her eye.


“Thankyou Mrs Night!” I said smiling and slowly walked away.


“Hey Lucy, good lesson?” asked Alice smiling while giving me a bear hug


“Great! So I’m guessing you had a run in with Brent?” I asked winking which her making her blush.


Brent had been her crush ever since year five and now we are in year 11 and she finally had the guts to talk to him and they have started going out and everyone thinks that their the cutest couple in the school.


“How’s Tiana?” I asked walking to our next class.


Alice’s happy expression immediately dropped at the name of her.


“Still in hospital sadly, broke a leg!” answered Alice twiddling her fingers, not wanting to talk about the subject.


Ouch! I wonder if she is still going to audition for that theatre play?


Tiana was born to be a famous actor and singer. You could tell just by looking at her famous designer clothes, beautiful features and drama queen attitude.


On the first day of year 7, everyone thought that Tiana was a snobby, rich girl that came from the city and wanted nothing to do with anyone. But Alice and I knew that she was one of us, when we saw her frightened eyes at Lunch and confused face. She was always so dramatic and a drama queen, but I guess that’s why Alice and I have loved her since the first day we saw her .


As for Alice, us two have been best friends since kindergarten, when she generously shared her peanut butter sandwich with me because I had dropped my lunch on the grass and bawled my eyes out.


I can just remember it, when she tapped on my shoulder and smiled at me with her big brown eyes and asked if I would like to share her peanut butter sandwich with her, under the big willow tree hidden in the oval, which turned out to be our secret hiding spot, where we would play with each other for hours.


“Hello, earth to Lucy!” shouted Alice clicking in front of my face.


“Ok, ok, no need to shout!” I said putting my hands on my ears.
