19. Dead in the water(Ellie Goulding)
It is all I can say. The ring where the competition is going to be is huge. It is full of skaters from different places.
"Ok guys" Martha says "You all need to change clothes. Then we just need to wait. The competition starts in two hours"
From Holmes Chapel it was me and more three: one girl from the youngest category, and another girl and a guy older than me that are on the duo category. We have already done the makeup and the hair in the hotel so we just need to change clothes.
We got here in Winsford yesterday. We went out and then went to the hotel to relax. Today is going to be a busy day.
I get out of the bathroom wearing my dress and a coat. I walk to the ring and sit next to Martha in place where most of the skaters are.
I am a little nervous. I'm not secure about the choreograph. I've learned it three weeks ago and there are some difficult steps. I needed to train one more time but thanks to Harry this was not possible. I thought Harry was my friend but it become clear he only cares about him. His attitude in the ring was so selfish!
"Katy, you are the next" Martha says
I get up and take of the coat. I just need to think of the choreograph. How it starts? Uhm....think Katy, think! Oh right! I remember! Okay, no panic. I can do this.
I heard someone introducing me on the microphone and I know it is my time.
I skate to the middle of the rink and wait. When I hear my song playing I start my choreograph. I am not thinking at all, I just do automatically. I am doing the foot work and I know the next thing is the walley jump. In one second I'm on the air, my body is rounding, in the other my right feet is on the ice and all at once I feel the cold of the ice all over my body, I look around and I am on the floor. I’ve felt. Without wasting time I get up quickly, hoping no one had seen it.Like it was possible. I smile and continue my choreograph.
The music stop. Everybody applause me but I get out of rink feeling a loser.
