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?


13. Its Almost Here


*Sorry i haven't updated in awhile. I was spending time with my sister and I've had lots of homework lately. Enjoy :)**


I was shaken awake and I flinched. I slowly opened my eyes to my mom leaning over me.

“Wake up sweetie” and her dark figure left my room.

I sat up and looked over at my alarm clock; it was barley four in the morning. I stretched my arms up over my head and slid out of bed. I took a quick shower before returning to my room. I put my hair in a top knot and put on yoga pants and a hoodie. I grabbed my suit case and drug it down the stairs, damn that thing was heavy.

“Your oatmeal is in the microwave,” she said running through the living like a crazy women.

“Thanks,” I faintly smiled.

“Oh, there’s something on the island for you” she winked.

I raised my eyebrow and almost ran to the island. My phone sat there, fully charged. It was pretty ridiculous my eyes started watering. I was surprise my mom waited this long to give it to me. Since the fight, we’ve slowly gotten better. Now things were basically back to normal, and since Andrew went back home there wasn’t any added drama.

I quickly typed in my code and I had 35 messages all from Niall. I couldn’t help but smile. He texted me the most random stuff,

“Niall: I said no tomatoes on my burger and I see tomatoes on it niceee”

“Niall: Liam just said I’m wimpy I’m not right? ):”

“Niall: I’m hot and it’s cold outside”

“Niall: I just told the press I have a girlfriend whoops, btw its you (:”

I scrolled through each message, missing his presence. I grabbed my oatmeal and sat at the table, eating it in under a minute.

“Car, we need to leave!” My mom yelled from her room.

“You’re the one still packing” I reminded her.

She ran out with her suitcase.

“Got your leos? Have your grips and bobby pins and-“

“Yes!” I laughed, “I checked all last night”

She went and turned off all the lights and locked the doors.

We stuffed our suitcases into the back seat and we were off to the airport.


The airport was busy but we got seated quickly on the plane. It was my first plane ride and I was terrified. Heights weren’t my thing. To make matters worse, my mom’s ticked got switched so we didn’t get to sit together.

I totally forgot I had my phone so I could talk to Niall. I quickly sent him a text,

“Hey, I’m getting on the plane to go to trials. Text you when I land. Miss you. Xx”

I put my phone in my pocket and took a deep breath. Everyone was starting to take their seats and I felt my anxiety worsen. The people behind me were teenage girls gossiping and I didn’t know how long I could take it.

“Excuse me, I need to get through”

I quickly jerked my head up, and quickly hugged him tight.

“What are you doing here?” I cried.

Him and the boys were laughing, and they eventually took their seat. Liam, Zayn, and Harry sat in front and Niall, Louis, and I sat in a row.

“How?” I asked through my tears of joy.

“Well,” Niall began, “I talked to your mom and brother one time while you were in gymnastics. I told her how much you meant to me, even though we’ve know each other a few weeks. She changed and said that she lost your father and she doesn't want’ you to lose me”

Niall bringing up my father brought up so many memories, my stomach dropped. I bit my lip to keep me from crying. I gave him a tight hug and kissed him, which took him by surprise. Louis groaned but I didn’t care.

I kept hearing the girls whisper stuff about “one direction sitting in front of them,” but we ignored them.

The plane got ready to take off. I grabbed Niall’s hand tight.

“This is my first” I said turning away from the window.

“Well babe, you’re lucky because this is my life. I’ve got you”

We put our seatbelts on and the plane took off. I grabbed Nialls hand even tighter but he didn’t flinch at all.

“You’re perfect” I said laying my head on his should and soon falling asleep.
