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?


11. The Fight


“What do I do!?” Harry whispered and he and Niall ran away from the door.


This wasn’t supposed to happen. She was supposed to stay at work. Phil probably called her. We heard her come up the stairs.

“The closet!” I whispered waving them off into the closet.

They slid the door shut as my mom opened mine.

“Carson babe are you okay?” She asked flooding me with a hug and touching my knee.

“I’m fine…” I sighed.

I was still upset with her from last night. No way was she getting out of this.

“What are we going to do?” she asked, “You have to get gold Carson it’s our goal.”

“I know Mom… Phil said rest and I’ll be fine tomorrow.”

“If you don’t get healed I’ll be so disappointed. I’ve waited years and paid thousands. We’re not throwing it away with a knee injury.”

“Wow. Thanks for making me feel bad” I rolled my eyes at her.

“Carson, are you telling me you don’t want to do this?”

She looked shocked. Here she went, taking the situation and turning it into an argument.

“I never said that. You and Andrew don’t make this fun. I couldn’t even eat another piece of bread without you guys calling me fat” I said tears lining my eyes.

“If it wasn’t for us you wouldn’t be disciplined. It’s for your own good. You will get first. We worked hard for you to get this far…”

“I worked hard for this…” I corrected her, a tear falling down my cheek.

“I’m going back to work,” she said slamming the door behind her. I took a deep breath, but broke down and cried. I covered my face trying to keep me from embarrassing myself. I heard the closet door slide open.

“I’m sorry,” Niall said his lip quivering.

Harry looked just plain uncomfortable.

“It’s fine,” I force smiled.

Niall and Harry gave me a hug and Niall kissed my cheek.

“I’m going to take a nap, I’ll text you when I wake up”

“Sounds good,” Niall said putting a piece of hair behind my ear.

“Carson, I’m- “My door slammed open and my mom let out a little scream.

“What is going on here?” She said her face getting angry.

“Mom! They helped me home. It’s nothing!” I said panicking.

“Were-Were they hiding?”

“I knew you would be mad, mom I swear they were helping me.”

“Miss, that’s what we were doing” Harry said trying to get into the argument but my mom stuck her finger out, shushing him.

“I don’t care what you’re doing Carson is busy and she can’t have you interfering leave please”

“Mom!” I cried.

“Give me your phone!” She yelled grabbing it off my bedside table.

“Mom this isn’t fair!”

Niall and Harry left, shaking their heads.

“You are to go to gymnastics and straight home. No more leaving. I’ll take you and Anthony will pick you up”

She stormed out of my room, slamming the door so hard it shook the wall.

“I HATE YOU” I yelled through the door.

I cried hard in my bed. My life was so complicated, and now my mom pushed Niall out of my life.
