3. The Boys

I was in a peaceful slumber when all of a sudden, I felt something warm licking my hand that was hanging off the side of the bed. I looked down and saw Chubbs my little 10 week old pug. He was the cutest, fattest little thing. I leaned down and picked him up to snuggle with me in bed. He started to lick my face, and I suddenly remembered about my eye.

"Ouch! No, no more Chub, no more licking." I set him back down on the floor and got up and walked to the bathroom. I turned on the light switch and was not please with what I saw looking back at me.

"Oh how fantastic." I said out loud as I saw my bad eye. Last night the doctor said I wouldn't need stitches or anything, and with enough ice it would go away with in a few days. But he didn't tell me that the morning after it would deepen in color! It was the ugliest shade of dark purple. Thank god the swelling went down though. I took a deep breath and told myself I could cover it with makeup.

I turned on the shower and let it get warm as I took off my clothes. I stepped in, and the warm water felt amazing. After doing my usual- shampoo, conditioner, face wash, body wash, and shave routine, I rinsed off and turned off the water. I stepped out and wrapped myself in a towel and thought about what my plans were today. Hmm, maybe I'll give that Jay guy a call...

Yeah, that's just what I'll do. Who needs Alex? I'm better off with out that douche.

I went to my room and put on some excersise clothes. I picked out a pair of pink, tight athletic shorts, a black racerback top, and my favorite cheetah print sports bra. I went back to the bathroom and looked at my purple eye. Gosh it was awful looking. I opened my drawer and got out my mascara and concealer. I loaded the concealer over the purple and then applied a layer of mascara. I was shocked at how normal looking I looked when I was finished; you wouldm't ave even known I was punched in the eye only 24 hours ago. I threw my long hair into a ponytail and grabbed my phone. I pulled out the the paper Jay gave me yesterday and I dialed it. As it rang, I looked at the writing on the back again. One...One. Could that have been One....Direction? Before I could think about it any longer I heard Jay pick up.

"Hello? Johnathen Parker Physical Trainer, may I ask who is calling?"

"Hey Jay, this is Kristina Lexa from yesterday! How are you?" There was a moment of silence.

"...Oh...OH! Yes miss Lexa, I am brilliant, how are you? I'm so thrilled you called!"

"Haha I'm alright, and please call me Kristina! So, I was wondering if you had any free time today, possibly you could squeeze a quick session in for me?"

"Oh of course!" He was quiet for a few seconds, I assumed he was looking through his schedule, "I am free from noon to two? Does that work with you Kristina?"

"That's perfect! Where should I meet you?"

"Oh well I have my own private facility in central London. It's called "Parker's" can you get directions?

"Yes, I can get those. So I'll see you at noon then, thank you so much for doing this last minute!"

"No! Thank YOU Kristina this is quite a big honor for me. See you soon!" We said goodbye and we both hung up. He was so genuine and nice! It was a nice change from Alex...

I got my gym bag together and put on my shoes and ran downstairs.

"Hey mum! I'm off, I'll be back later." I grabbed an apple and a few granola bars and threw then in my bag.

"Where are you going? You need to rest babe! Your eye remember?" I chuckled at her.

"I'm going to that Jay guy's private gym, you remember, the nice guy we met yesterday? And mum, I'm a runner! I doubt I will strain or injur my eye while I'm running. Besides, I think I'll take it easy today. Maybe some yoga or something to loosen me up. Bye! I love you!" I walked towards the door. I heard her let out a sigh and get up.

"Alright, but please be safe love. You have your phone right?" She kissed me on the head.

"Yes mum, see you later!" I gave her a hug and walked out of the house to our car. As I drove away, I gave her a wave. Then, as soon as she was out of sight I turned on my GPS and plugged in the gym's address and pulled out a granola bar. As I drove to London I sang along to the radio and danced like no one was watching me. I loved driving to the city by myself, London was so beautiful! Finally, I pulled up to the gym and parked my car. I got out and opened the glass door, my jaw dropping as I saw the inside. It was HUGE! For a private gym, it had everything: treadmills, bench presses, a juice bar, TV's, stereo systems...I was in heaven.

I heard someone clear their throat and I turned to see a petite blonde women behind a desk, she looked about 35 and she had deep brown eyes framed by chic red glasses. She looked at me with an annoyed expression.

"Do you have an appointment with Jay?" She said raising an eyebrow.

"Yes, I do. At 12 pm." She sighed and reached to her desk phone. She looked like she really hated her job. It was kind of amusing.

"Jay, theres someone here for you.....I don't know who she is...ugh, fine." She looked up at me. "Name?"

"Kristina Lexa." I said politely. Her eyes widened and she looked apologetic for acting so rude. Wow, there are perks to being a well known Olympian in England.

"Oh um yes...err..Kristina Lexa. She's here for you." It was quiet for along time, and I thought I heard panicked screaming on the other end. Finally she looked up at me.

"Oh, Miss Lexa I'm so sorry. Jay seemed to have accidentally double booked. He is so sorry, this rarely ever happens, he must have been so excited you were coming he didn't think straight when he told you noon. Are you alright with sharing your session with another client...or well, um, clients?"

"Oh, that's totally fine. I'm flexible." I smiled at her. She smiled back and got up from her chair.

"I'll take you up stairs to the exclusive training room, Miss Lexa." She led me upstairs and we approached a door. She knocked and opened it slightly.

"Jay, she's here."

"Oh yes! Bring her in!"

I walked in to the room to see Jay, and five young boys about my age looking at me. My jaw dropped as I recognized who the five, sweaty, and VERY fit boys were...

Harry Styles, Liam Payne, Niall Horan, Louis Tomlinson, and Zayn Malik.

I was about to work out with One Direction.
