I was in fifth grade chorus last year.

It was fun and at the end of the year, I got a solo.

I was very nervous because I don’t like to be famous or have too many people notice me.

I did very well in my fifth grade solo at the end of the year.

When sixth grade started, I had to try out for chorus, but I think everyone who tried out made it.

There are about 80 students in sixth grade chorus.

Most of the people are really nice in chorus.

I only attend chorus once a rotation because I have band and seminar during that same block of the day as well.

I go to chorus with other students in band who sing the same part that I do.

One day, I was running up and down on the bleachers.

A student there said that I should stop and bumped me hard after he said it.

I got very upset.

I don’t understand why he couldn’t just ask me to stop.

I would have.

Why did he have to bump into me too?

Then, he said to me, “Bet you $20 that you are going to tell on me now.”

Why did he say that?

I have to admit that I probably was going to tell because he bumped into me which was completely unnecessary.

I think that makes it a good reason to tell.

I’ve learned that I can’t always tell the teacher what is going on.

Some kids make fun of me about that.

Sometimes it makes it worse to tell.

Other times, it’s very important to tell.

I thought that this was one of those times.

So I told anyway.

I don’t think I will have to give him $20 because I didn’t shake on the bet.

When I told the chorus director, she said that I did the right thing.

I actually had to talk to the guidance counselor too.

I don’t stand near that boy on the risers anymore.

He leaves me alone.

And I learned that maybe I shouldn’t run up and down the risers because it might bother other people.
