Going for the Gold

Carson is a 17 year old that has only been surrounded by gymnastics. With the Olympics coming up, she is pressured into perfecting each routine for trials. One day, when her mom couldn't pick her up, she was forced into taking the subway. In the one cart she decided to sit in, she met someone that would change her life forever. Will Carson go to the Olympics and get the gold she has been practicing years for with that special someone by her side?


8. A Distraction at Practice


I woke up the next morning extremely tired. I hit snooze on my alarm but I couldn’t fall back asleep. I could hear my brother snoring in his room next door. I definitely didn’t miss him. I picked out a blue leo, a shade that was almost identical to Niall’s eyes. Then it hit me, all five were going to be watching me. I went to the bathroom and shaved everywhere. I had to at least look decent. I didn’t even know if Phil would allow them to sit in and watch.

I pulled my hair back into my usual messy bun and put on my spandex. I heard my phone go off and I ran to my room.

“Niall: We’re leaving now”

I quickly threw on a t-shirt and tennis shoes. I grabbed my wallet and a jacket and was out the door. I quickly texted Niall back.

“Me too. See you soon (:”

The sun was starting to come up and the buildings were casting shadows. I check the time, gymnastics started in an hour, we should get there at least fifteen minutes early. I decided to jog and got to the subway. I bought my ticket and went and sat on the same bench Niall and I did. I checked to see if Niall texted back but he hadn’t. They should have been here by now. The station was pretty much empty, only a few people walking by.

Then I saw them, they had hats and sun glasses on. I didn’t think they’d be in disguise…

“Sorry, Zayn fell back asleep” Niall said punching his arm.

“Hey, you know I don’t wake up early…” he said pushing him back.

“Stop!” I yelled, “If you want to go back home its fine. You don’t have to watch me.”

“Oh we want to watch you” Harry said stepping between Niall and Zayn.

“You guys are ridiculous” I sighed.

“When is the subway supposed to be here?” Louis asked putting his elbow on my shoulder and leaned on me.


Right after I said that, the subway flew by and stopped. The door opened and all six of us got in an empty cart. I watched them take their hat and glasses off.

“Do you always do that?” I asked playing with a fiber on the seat.

“Nah not always,” Niall smiled.

Within five minutes, Harry and Liam were singing, Zayn had his head up against the seat resting his eyes, and Louis was throwing questions at me.

“How long have you lived here?”

“My parents moved here when I was a few months old, so basically my whole life.”

“Louis man, are you done?” Niall laughed and wrapped his arm around me and pulled me close.

I rested my head on his shoulder the rest of the ride there. They quickly put the hats and glasses back on before the door opened. All six of us went up the stairs and walked the block to the gym. Niall opened the black door for us and they gathered in the front room.

“Stay here for a second” I said and ran to Phils office.

“Morning Carson,” he greeted me not looking from his computer screen.

“I have a few guests here to watch me okay?”

Phil shook his head immediately.

“You don’t need distractions we fly out in a week”

“They won’t distract me I promise! If anything I’ll be better, really”

He got up from his chair and went to the gym. I took that as a yes.

I went back to the front room and Louis and Liam were messing around on a balance beam.

“You can’t distract me which means no yelling no flashes no nothing got it?”

“Sure thing” Niall said scooping me up and kissed my cheek.

I wrapped my arms around his neck and stared into his eyes. I swear he was about to kiss me but one of the boys shouted “Get a room”

He put me down and they followed me to the bleachers. As soon as they entered the gym, girls screamed and ran to them, flooding them with hugs.

“What is going on!” Phil yelled walking over to see what the commotion was.

“What are you doing here?” Phil asked, definitely star struck.

“Watching Carson” Niall said winking at me.

I felt myself blushing.

“We’ll do autographs later” Louis said trying to get everything in control.

“You heard him, back to work,” Phil said waving them off.

The girls were upset but did as they were told.

“You’re doing floor and bars,” Phil said walking by me.

The boys sat down and watched me walk to my locker. I took my shirt and shorts off and the boys began whistling.

“Shhh!” I said scolding them.

I took a deep breath. I couldn’t trip or make myself look stupid in front of them. This would be fun…
