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.


14. Dwelling In The Shower


From: Harry <3

So, we are going bowling tonight? You bring a friend or anyone, if you'd like. xx

I read from my phone that vibrated from the cup holder located to my right. I had completely forgotten to reply to Harry. I didn't know what to reply. I knew I had my Starbucks date with all the girls and I knew that Darcy probably wouldn't be up for it, let alone approve of it. I needed to start seperating myself from Harry. I know, this makes me seem like a cruel person, but in reality, I'm saving both of us. Both of us won't have to go through heart break, that is, if he even cared about me like that. Maybe I should talk to him about it?

I heard the passenger door open and Darcy threw her stuff in the backseat and plopped down. Since she told me everything, her face wasn't as hard and broken looking. She had her normal skin color back and she was smiling a lot more. "Hey, Darc... I have a question."

"Yes, deary?"

"Are you in the mood to mingle tonight? Harry just asked me if we wanted to go bowling. If not, I COMPLETELY understand! It's no big deal if you say no!"

Darcy made her thinking face, where she scrunched her lips up and moved them to one side of her face with her nostriles flared a little bit. "I guess it could be a healthy thing... To get out and socialize to forget about everything. Sure, why not?"

"Really? Are you sure?"

"Yeah, it's not like it'll hurt anything. It'll make it better, if anything. What time?"

I had a huge smile plastered on my face. "I'm not sure. I'm going to start driving back to the house so can you reply for me?"

I handed her my phone and told her to reply 'Yeah, I'm going to bring Darcy though. What time? It has to be later because I'm going to Starbucks with the girls at 7.'

The whole ride home was filled with laughter and talking. Both of us had been so busy that we hadn't had much Rue and Darcy time.

Eventually, we arrived back at my house and I checked the time; 6:20. "I think I'm going to take a quick shower. We may as well be ready to go straight from there to the bowling alley."

We had told Harry we'd meet him and the boys there at 8:20. "Okay. When your done I'm going to hop in after you."

I nodded my head and made my way to the bathroom. I took all of my clothes and stepped into the hot water. As normal, my shower was my time of thinking. I thought about everything. Harry, Darcy, my story that I would tell the girls, and the guilt I'd later feel for giving them the white lie that I planned on telling them. I knew I could trust them, but I didn't want to tell many people. I only wanted Darcy to know.

I knew Darcy had to take a shower, as well, so I turned the nozzel off and stepped out. Steam was wrapped all around my body as I grabbed my towel and dried myself off. I wrapped the towel around my body and stepped into the hall way.

The cold air hit me in every direction and I ran over to my bedroom, shouting to Darcy "Showers open!" as I did so. She shouted back an 'Okay' and I heard the bathroom door close. I looked at my phone and saw that I had a three new texts;

From: Madelyn

Can't wait to hear about it all later! See you soon!


Sorry that it took so long to reply! But, im coming 2night. See everybody there! Any chance of telling me what the topic is? I feel so clueless!

From: Harry <3

Can't wait to see you tonight! Grettea txted and told me paps knew about our plans and were going to be there.. Another show for them ;D xx

I replied to all the messages, telling Mads 'Can't wait!' and Kaylyn 'Haven't you seen any tabloids? Live under a rock :P You'll find out soon enough!' and the last one to Harry, which I shouldn't have done, 'You know it! Gonna make tonight funn! ;D'

I took a deep breath and began getting ready for the night. Who knew what it would have in store for me?
