Lauren waved as Ginger passed, but she quickly focused on balancing again. Her arms were out, one holding onto the performer and the other flailing in an attempt to stay upright.

"Moving might help," he said, sounding amused, and she slowly started to cycle. "I've got you, don't worry." He was strong and Lauren felt a little braver as she pressed on. Once she found her balance, it actually wasn't that hard. Soon she let go of the performer and he released her. She was doing it on her own! Lauren laughed and looked over where Ginger was. Her roommate was had started juggling and Lauren was pretty impressed.

She felt wobbly turning, but holding her arms out helped and Lauren couldn't stop smiling. This was so cool. She looked out to see if she could spot her brother in the crowd, but no luck. Lauren did another few turns and then hopped off the unicycle. "How do I get on it by myself?" she asked.

"I didn't know you could juggle that well! That was awesome. I think you're the only person I know who can juggle like that. And now I'm the only person I know who can unicycle." Lauren smiled proudly. "It's so fun. I'm going to have to see if my mom will buy me one when I get back. Do you want to try it out?"

        “Look at you!” Ginger enthused in delight as she saw Lauren unicycling over to her. “Wow! You learned that fast!” She grinned, feeling pretty pleased that Lauren had seen at least some of her... more
