Chapter 2: Chapter Two : Is This My Dream ?

I started my search ,you won't believe what I found .

I found out that (Louis Layler)was a top student in St:Royal Indoor Academy, not only that, but he also worked as a teacher there for a hole year .

When I found out about him being a student there , I was determined to attend St:Royal Indoor Academy in order to find out more about him .

But first I will have to win first place in the upcoming competition.

The competition is seven days away , I will have to learn more skills since the competition them won't be revealed until the competition day , so I have to learn as much skills as possible .

And that was the first time I was determined to win something .

Days passed , and the day of the competition has arrived .

In the morning of that day I woke up early ,since I was so excited for the competition .

I mean just the thought, of knowing more about (Louis Layler), is enough to make me do my best .

At any case I went down to eat breakfast, when I sat down mom told me "Ann , today is the day, you must work hard to win the competition".

I told her "yes, mom I will work hard I mean I really can't wait, if I win I will get the scholarship and finally go to school" .

mom told me in a surprised voice "so... you want to go to St:Royal Indoor Academy?!".

I answered her "yes , of course, I mean who wouldn't?".

Mom told me "well if that's the case, then good luck" .

So when I arrived at the place where the competition will take place in, I went to the main hall were all the contest participants were.

The main hall was crowded with participants , and to tell the truth they were all kids , interesting ones if I say so my self .

I never did my best in any of the competitions I have won , you know I always win anyways ,but this time I will definitely win because I am going to give it my all and definitely win .

The competition organizer came and gave his speech , then he announced the theme .

He said "...and the theme is.....{Dream's}" .

After that he said "dear participants: please go and prepare for the competition, the competition will begin after one hour starting now , remember come to this hall after one hour!, you may leave"

I for the first time felt nerves and scared, I never had a dream, I mean I alway did what I was told .

So I went to my mom and told her "hey ,mom what's a dream ?", I do know it's something which you might see in your sleep, that i can assure you!.

She told me with a smile on her face " a dream is something you heart has longed for."

I told her "I don't think I have one" .

Mom told me "of course you do , just close your eyes and think of what you want to do in the future , now go somewhere relaxing and think about it , good luck." .

I told her "fine" and took my leave.

I found a beautiful garden near the hall , with calla lily flowers and Angelica herbs .

I sat between them and took a deep breath then I closed my eyes just like mom said and started thinking hmmm.. my dream huh ! Do I even have one ?.

Think Ann think , something you want to do in the future , will let's see a future is like what's about to happen right?!, which means.. hmm .

Yes that's it , what do I want to do after the competition also counts as a future right ?!! .

So what I want to do after winning the competition is to enter St:Royal Indoor Academy , I want to know more about (Louis Layler) I want to know more about him and about his Paintin, .

I want to know how he can make a simple painting so beautiful, I want to know more about his last painting what kinds of  Feelings did he put in them, I want to learn his skills and so on.

Wait a minute this is My Dream :it's to know more about the art of painting!.

But how on earth will I express my dream in a white board ?.

Then I realized that so much time has passed already, only ten minutes are left ,I started panicking can I really think of something in such a short time ?? .

Think Ann , I closed my eyes again and took a deep breath once more .

But this time I smelled the calla lily flowers and the Angelica herbs and then I had the a great idea thanks to the smell of flowers.

I remembered the meaning of the Cella Lily flowers witch is "magnificent beauty," and the Angelica herbs which meant "Inspiration" I guess it was worth  learning the language of flowers I believe the flowers were trying to send a message haha !! .

Then suddenly my phone ranged it was mom , I answered her call and she said "Ann were are you 5 mints are left if you don't make it in time you will be disqualified , hurry up" .

I told her "yes, i am on my way" .

I took my bag and my art tools ,  and started running , thank goodness the main hall was close to the garden I made it just in time .

As soon as I arrived they closed the gates, then the organizer of the competition gave his signal "you only have 2 hours , you may begin".

I took my brushes and colors out and started painting what's in my head .

Firs I drew my future self in the middle of the board in other words  (me as a middle schooler) .

Then I drew the background which was a building's with lights in the night.

I drew a big moon behind me (just so you know I was sort of floating hehe) .

Then I Surrounded the me in the painting with a shiny ribb., which is sort of see-through .

then I drew some Paining equipment in deferent spots of the ribbon that surrounds the me in the painting .

I added some stars in the sky ,and glued some sparkle since it's a dream, I told my self why not?, and I finished.

I looked at the time there was about 15 mints left, I looked at the painting one more time, and I still had a feeling that there was something missing .

Then I realized that I still didn't give my painting a name, after awhile I gave it one :

I named it {to know the unknown}.

Then I told my self "is it weird to add sparkle ?nah it's a dream I am trying to express here , so why not ?."

I finally finished, oh wait just one more little thing yes there now it's perfect" .

I covered the painting and waited until the organizer said in a supper loud voice "Times up" .

All the kids were in a big panic .

Will to be honest I had confidence in my painting, but I still was nervous since this competition will determine wether I get to take my first step towards my dream or not .

At any case it was time for the presentation , we have to present our painting and talk about it .

I was number 26 and there were 32 participants I wanted to be the last one since I was a little bit nervous.

so I went to meet participant number 32 and when I found him I told him "sorry to take your time but would you mind switching with me ??"  .

He answered me "I don't mind but what number are you?.

I told him "I am number 26" .

he told me "good I will switch with you since I will be the winner anyways" then he left .

I told my self that kid sure has one big mouth I just wanted to save "the best for last" .😝
