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.


13. Story Time

"Are you ready, Rue?" Darrcy said to me. She had her bag in her hand and was standing beside me, looking more exhausted than earlier. Madelyn came and stood beside Darcy.

"Yeah, I'm ready. Are you going to meet up with us at Starbucks later, Madelyn?"

"Of course! Is everyone else coming?"

"They should. I texted them and they all said they would." I said as I shrugged my arms and lifted my heavy bag off the ground. I felt my phone buzz in my hand and looked down to read my message.

From: Harry <3

Are you doing anything tonight? Thought us and the boys could go bowling or something.

I began to type my reply untill Darcy said "is it okay if we stop by my house so I can get my stuff? You can stay in the car, it won't be long."

"No problem. Let's go now so we can shower. I don't want to smell gross when we go! Bye Mads!" I hollored over my shoulder.

"Bye, guys! See you lot later!" she shouted back.

The moment we reached the car, I turned on the ignition and began to drive when I turned to Darcy and said "Okay, so who's going to talk first?"

"You can." she replied, dully.

"Okay... Oh, where to begin? Well, remeber a few days ago when Grettea told me stay after later? Well, I was there for about an hour after everyone left so I was just sitting there listening to music and then Gretta told me to go and look 'presentable' and when I was walking to the bathroom I saw two boys out in the lobby and when I was changed, they were gone! So I went back into the office and boom! Harry flippen Styles was sitting right there! Then Grettea started telling Harry and I about how we needed a publicity stunt in order to get our 'reputation' back! I guess he dated some lady who was way older than him and the paps ate him alive for it, and me, well the whole accident ruined me for a good while. They said we had to get back on the good side and the only way to do that, which I don't think it's the only way, there had to have been another way, was to date each other for a year and a half, or until the Olympics, where we'd have this big break up. I had to agree, too because Grettea said if we didn't then they'd drop us as clients, which I know we could easily find new ones, but it's just not worth it. The problem is, I think I'm really starting to like him! I can't like him! I can't led myself on! You know what happened last time I did that! I was a wreck for almost five months! I can't fall for him knowing we have to break up after a year and a half! And I don't know if he is falling back or if it's just me! When he holds my hand it's electricty, when he hugs me it's perfect, and when he kissed me the other night... I can't even describe it. Everything is so perfect with him, and I can't let that happen! What do I do Darc!" When I finished I took an big inhale of breath. We were at a stop light so I turned and saw her giving me the look of sympathy.

"Darc, don't give me that look. That makes it all worse."

Darcy looked down at her feet, trying to find the words. "Rue... For once, I don't know what to tell you. You've gotten yourself into a mess, haven't you, Kanga-Rue?" She shook her head and gave a smile, first one of the day. "If it were to turn into something where you both liked each other and started to really date, what would happen?"

"I'm not too sure... We'd probably still have to break up. The intent of this wasn't for us to really fall for each other."

"Maybe you should just start distancing yourself? I know you have to be with each other a lot, but maybe you should just put the front on and start putting up walls. It's what we do best, keeping people out. That is, everyone but each other," Darcy laughed again. And she was right. I never let my guard down for many people, especially not as quickly as I did for Harry.

"I guess that's what I'm going to have to do... So what's going on with you?"

Darcy burst out into tears. Darcy, again, like me, was never one to cry. Luckily, we were passing a store, so I pulled into the parking lot and pulled my best friend into a hug. We sat there for a good five minutes, her just crying into my should and me patting her back. Neither of us said anything, we both knew words didn't help.

She pulled away from me and whipped her eyes. This time it was me who was giving her the look of pity. "Well, I broke up with Kyle last night."

My mouth dropped. Kyle was her boyfriend of two years, they were always happy and clicked immedietly. I saw them getting married one day. "What?! Why! What happened?!"

"He cheated on me." She wouldn't look me in the eye. "He really cheated on me. He's going to be a father... To someone else's child." And the chorus of heavy breathy because of tears started again.

She practically jumped in my arms and I just sat there, holding her, with my mouth hanging open. I don't know how I managed it, but I calmed her down and I began the drive to her home. She continued to talk, telling me about how he told her and what she did and why he cheated. I nodded my head at the right times, saying my opinion when needed, and listened to her. I knew she was strong and would threw all this.

I knew we both would get threw everything together.
