What Humans Do

The world of gymnastics is a cruel one and when you get injured on the job you will be seen as easy prey. That's exactly what happened to me. I'm on the UK's Olympic Gymnast team and one day it's all taken from me when I left the gym on a stretcher. Now, I'm fighting my way back to the top of my team. That's the whole point of this whole stunt. Everything with him was perfect, but I couldn't allow that. I could only be with him for a year and a half. That's it. That's the whole point of this publicity stunt, to get back to the top, not to fall for each other. I would NOT, under any circumstnaces, let myself fall in love with Harry Styles.

I'm leaving my house. Are you ready?


From: Harry <3

Yup. Can't wait to see you xx

I didn't even respond to his message. Mainly because I was driving and I was against texting and driving ever since a close friend of mine died while texting and driving. He was more like a brother, he was my brothers best friend who practically lived at my house. The hardest part of that whole ordeal was watching my brother go into pain.

Of my whole family, I got on with him the best, him and my sister. My brother moved back to Romania with my family. They hadn't been there long, maybe seven months? They moved back a couple days after my eighteenth birthday. I don't even know why we moved here to be honest, Romania's gymnast training is always amazing.

Harry's house really wasn't too far away so I had just gotten there. I was honestly kind of nervous tonight. Today was the day that he'd meet Madelyn, Kaylyn, Lauryn, and then meet Darcy over again. I knew they'd love them, but since my parents are really far away, their opinion is like a parents opinion. Which reminded me, I had to meet Harry's mum soon. Great.

I knocked on the door and Harry answered. He gave me a hug and a kiss on the check and we walked to the car.

"So, is there any specific things I should know to say or not to say to them tonight?" Harry asked. We hadn't spoken for a few minutes, which was normal for us. I was a woman of few words and he was a man of few words. At least it wasn't an awkward silence normally, it was always a comfortable silence.

"Not that I can think of... Just don't get freaked out when Kaylyn doesn't talk much or shrieks when she sees you. She's a bit of a One Direction fan."

I could see Harry smile out of the corner of my eye. I don't even know why, but I blushed. "Since Holmes Chapel is only a two hour drive, do you want to go and meet my family tomorrow?"

My eyes widend and I turned to look at Harry for a second. "Tomorrow?!"

He laughed at me. "Yeah, she really wants to meet you! You'll be fine! She's a people person so she likes everyone! Gemma will love you, too, but it make take an hour to warm up to her. She's protective over me."

I gave him a mock "aww" and then after him convincing me some more I finally agreed. We'd be leaving at the crack of dawn practically but he was driving there so I could just sleep in the car if I was that tired.

"When am I going to meet your family? We can go to Romania anytime, as long as I'm not on tour which that starts in two months so I'd hope before then. I don't want them to think I'm rude."

I looked at Harry and gave him the 'please don't' face. "You don't have to meet them. You won't be able to understand anything they say, it's easier for then to just speak romanian so I'd have to translate."

Harry's face contorted into shock. "You speak Romanian?! You never told me that!"

"I didn't think I'd really have to! I'm from there and almost all my family only speak romanian!"

"Quick! Say something!"

"Say what?! I'm so confused!"

"Say 'I am in love with Harry Edward Styles'!"

I gave him 'the look' and sighed knowing that argueing with him was like argueing with a two year old; pointless. "Sunt în dragoste cu Harry Stiluri Edward. Are you pleased now?"

He gave me a smug smile and said "greatly!"

We had finally arrived at the place and still, all Harry could say was 'My girlfriend speaks romanian! I got lucky!' which I just kept rolling my eyes at.

"I think I see Darcy's car but I don't know where everyone else it. Maybe they all came here in Darc's car?" I thought aloud.

I could feel myself absent mindedly grab Harry's hand the moment we got out of the car and I was beside him. I hope tonight wouldn't turn out as terrible as I imaged it would.
