Once there was a boy called Oliver who lived with his mum, dad and his little brother Connor, also their dog Max. Oliver loved spending time with Max like taking him for walks and cuddling him. Now another thing Oliver absolutely loved was singing. He loved to watch Britain's Got Talent, X Factor, The Voice, The Voice Kids and any other television show to do with singing. At his school, which was St Luke's High School, he loved His music lessons. At his school he took singing lessons. Also he had his own YouTube channel where he did covers of songs and did music videos for his own songs. His dream was to be a famous singer. Although there was one problem, he had stage fright. He could sing in front of his family and friends but he couldn't sing in front a lot of people especially people he didn't know. You see when he was younger he was at his best friend Alex's birthday party and at the party there was a stage for the entertainer. During the entertainment the entertainer asked for a volunteer so Oliver volunteered. Anyway, when he got up on the stage he slipped and fell. Everyone stared at him and he started crying. So that was why he had stage fright.
Anyway one day he was in English class and it was Period 4. He was sat next to Alex. Then Alex told Oliver about St Luke's High School Talent Show and that the auditions were tomorrow at lunchtime in the main school hall. Then Alex said, "You should do it. You are a really good singer." "But you know I have stage fright." replied Oliver nervously. "Yeah I know but you could overcome your fear and you might win!' exclaimed Alex. "Well I might do it." Then their English teacher Mr Smartypants. Yes that's his actual real name. He said "Oliver and Alex get out of my classroom. How dare you talk when I am!" So they left the classroom with no argument or back chat. Then the pastoral coordinator Mrs Lovely came and picked them up. She took them to her office. Then they all sat down. Then Mrs Lovely said "Why were you talking when Mr Smartypants was? Its not like you two." "Well Miss you see I think Oliver should sing in the talent show. However, he has stage fright." replied Alex. Then Oliver shouted "Why did you tell Miss that for? How dare you!" Then he stormed out and slammed the door behind him. 'Oliver wait!' yelled Alex and Mrs Lovely. Mrs Lovely said "Alex go back to class". So Alex did as he was told. Then Mrs Lovely went after Oliver. Now where did Oliver go you ask? Well he went to see his music teacher Mr Hampell. You see he felt comfortable talking to Mr Hampell. When he got in to Mr Hampell’s classroom Mr Hampell asked, "Why aren't you in class?". So Oliver told him what had happened. Then Mr Hampell said, "Well Oliver I think you should sing in the talent show too and you need to make up with Alex. I think he was only trying to help. "Thanks for the advice sir." replied Oliver. "Your welcome" said Mr Hampell. Then Oliver left and that's when he bumped in Mrs Lovely and she said “I have been looking for you everywhere. Come with me." "Sorry miss" replied Oliver. "Its ok" said Mrs Lovely. So she took him back to class. When he got back into his English class he went to speak to Mr Smartypants and said, "Sorry for talking sir" said Oliver. "That's ok. I accept your apology." replied Mr Smartypants. Then Oliver sat down. Then Alex said, "Sorry for telling miss about your stage fright. Can we be friends again?". "Thank you it's ok and I will be your friend again." replied Oliver. Then they smiled at each other and shook hands.
Then after school when Oliver got home his mum and dad said "we would like to speak to you Oliver." "Coming." replied Oliver wondering what his mum and dad wanted to speak him about. When he came in the living room his mum, and Connor as well we're sat on the sofa. Then his mum said "Sit down Oliver". So he did. "What do you want to talk to me about?" asked Oliver. " Well we got a call from school and they told us what happened." replied his mum. Then his dad said "We are not cross with you. In fact we have bought you a present" . "Thank you." said Oliver. "I will go and get it for Oliver." exclaimed Connor. "Thank you sweetheart" said Mum. So Connor ran into the kitchen and came back in the living room and in his hands he had a box. Then he gave it Oliver. "Thank you for getting it for me from the kitchen, Connor and Mum and Dad, thank you for buying me a present." cried Oliver happily. "Your welcome." replied Mum, Dad and Connor. Then Oliver opened the box and inside was a real
working golden microphone. Oliver was so happy. He had wanted a actual microphone for years. You see all the other ones he'd had, had been toy microphones. Then he ran towards his mum and dad and gave them a big hug and said a massive THANK YOU. "We knew you would like it. We thought you could use it for the school talent show. The school mentioned it when they called." said Mum. Then Connor said, "It is a magic microphone isn't it." "Yes it is" said Mum and Dad. "Really!" exclaimed Oliver. Then Mum nodded and said "It will help you become the best singer ever!" "Well I am going to sing my heart out, overcome my fear of stage fright and win the talent show" shouted Oliver happily. " "Good for you son" said Dad. "I am so happy to be your little brother." said Connor. "Thanks everyone." said Oliver. Then Max the dog came in the living room and looked at Oliver. Max wanted to go for a walk and then have a hug off Oliver. However, Oliver ran up to his room to try his microphone out. Max groaned. Then Dad said to Max, "Don't worry boy I will walk you. Oliver is just excited. I am sure he will give you a big cuddle soon". Anyway, in Oliver's room Oliver was singing and dancing. Then he thought to himself 'I can't wait for the auditions tomorrow'.
The next day Oliver was preparing for his audition for the school talent with Mr Hampell. Then the bell rang. "Good luck Oliver." said Mr Hampell. "Thank you Sir" replied Oliver. Then he went to the main school hall. The judges for the school talent show were Mr Hampell, Mrs Violinette, who is another music teacher, and the school head teacher Mr Snobby. There was one person in front of Oliver and that was Singing Simone who was Oliver's singing rival. Then her audition started and she had a beautiful singing voice. The song she sang was Boomerang by JoJo Siwa who is a Youtuber by the way. At the end of her audition everyone clapped and she was given her feedback and she was entered into the school talent show. Then it was Oliver's turn. He sang wonderfully. The song he sang was Love Me Like You Do by Ellie Goulding. He was applauded. "Well done." said Mrs Violinette. "Very impressive! " exclaimed Mr Snobby. "We are entering you into the school talent show. Congratulations!" said Mr Hampell. Oliver was so happy.
When he got home he told his mum, dad and Connor, they were all really proud of him. The next few weeks there were lots of rehearsals for St Luke's High School Talent Show. Oliver wasn't really spending any time with Max the Dog. Max was feeling a bit lonely. Anyway, the night before the school talent show Oliver was asleep in bed. Anyway, his mum was doing some housework and then she went to bed too. However, he had left the back door open and Max the dog ran away. The next morning when the family woke up they realized Max had ran away so they went to look for him. They looked for him for hours and the talent show had started but Oliver was last so they had a bit more time and they eventually found Max. "Sorry if you felt left out Max." said Oliver. Then Max licked Oliver's face and Oliver smiled. Then they rushed to the school for the talent show and they made it just in time. Oliver sang amazingly and he won the talent show and got over his fear of stage fright.
When he got older he became a famous singer. Now for the magic microphone hadn't been magic at all. It had been Oliver that had done it all.
