The Presentation - Fiction

1. 
Crystal stood in front of the classroom and focused on not letting her hands shake too obviously. Having a tall podium helped as she placed her note cards on it, and stopped worrying about dropping them or getting them completely out of order. She wanted to make a good impression on the members of the city council, rather than give them something to shake their heads about after the presentation.

"Ladies and gentlemen I am here to encourage everyone to participate in the neighborhood garage sales next month," said Crystal, hoping her voice sounded stronger to the audience than it did in her head. "In the past, families have had sales in order to clean out closets, make room in attics, and straighten up basements, but this year, we are hoping households will have sales and donate at least a portion of profits to the local children's hospital. The money we raise will allow the staff to purchase new toys and games for the patients." She paused and took a deep breath. "Please consider joining us and making many children's lives a little brighter . . . thank you."

To her surprise, people began clapping; Crystal relaxed for the first time. Everyone might go home talking about her after the meeting, but their smiles reassured her that she did not need to worry about what they might be saying.
