It's OK you can do this. It's a music lesson, music is what you are good at. I sat alone in my seat waiting for the lesson to start. I knew no-one and almost all the other students had paired off already.
The girl on one side of me was talking animatedly to the guy next to her. I was contemplating joining the conversation when a guy sat in the empty seat next to me. Here was my chance to be friendly.
'I'm Skye. What's your name?'
'Nice to meet you Gregory.' I smiled my warmest smile possible. 'So are you new here too?'
'How are you finding it?'
'To be honest, I'm a bit nervous.' He leaned in secretively. 'I've never been to a school like this before.'
'Don't worry neither have I. I didn't even think this was real until now.'
'So I take it you're in music first three lessons.' I checked my timetable.
'I am. Then drama just before lunch, a singing lesson just after and ballet at the end of the day.'
'Wow. You're busy.'
'Tell me about it!' I laughed and I think he did too.
