2. Chapter 2.

I've packed my suitcase and now I'm at the train station waiting to go to London. The train arrives. I kiss my mum and dad goodbye. I smile.

"I'll email everyday." I say. My parents smile. I walk onto the train with Sarah. I sit next to her. I wave to my parents. The train starts moving. We're off. I stare at the miles of countryside we pass. Sarah is non stop talking to a fellow Olympian that's been swimming since she was 15 or 16. All I'm doing is staring out the window. I'm not sure if I'm nervous or excited. Perhaps both.

The train eventually stops at London. I get off with all the other Olympians. I'm the newest. The only one I know is Sarah, but she's talking to someone else. I sigh and wheel my suitcase along, following everyone else. Training's going to be 10 times tougher than training to qualify. I'm one of the unlucky ones. I qualified in the last qualifications. Which means I have at least 2 weeks to train as an Olympian.

"Hey, Laura is it?" A male voice says. I turn to see it's Tom. Tom Daley. Tom Daley is talking to me.

"Yes, Tom right?" I say, pretending not to know him. I'm exactly one month, 2 weeks and 3 days younger than him.

"Yeah, you ok? I mean you look a bit lost." He says comfortingly.

"Yeah, I mean it's a bit overwhelming, to be honest." He laughs.

"I see your point. I've only done it once. It's kind of scarey." I look at him.

"Very comforting." I say sarcastically.

"I'm being honest." He says. "Well, I best be going. See you at the Ceremony." And that's it. Tom Daley walks out of my life forever. I stare at him as he walks off. Then I carry on walking to the Olympic Village. I collect my key and head to my new flat. It's amazing.
