New Year, New Life, New Me

Paige Mallory is the new girl around. She just moved down to texas from georgia. She was a world champ on Orange for many years. Her dad got a new gym so it's good bye to her old family and home that she called Stingrays. Once she walks through the doors of Cheer Athletics she knows that everything is going to change but is it for the better?


9. The Cats Come Together

Paige's POV:

I walked in hand in hand to our very first cheetahs practice together with Ryan. I was actually really scared about this. The tumbling was going to be okay but the stunting, most of it was brand new to me. I was use to girls basing under me. I was a little shaky but coach said i did well. We just played around with the basics. Then it was time to do the thing i do best, tumble.

After we had shown off our best tumbling skills i saw Peyton who was sitting at the front of the floor the entire time. I mean i knew peyton had troubles with tumbling but i wasn't sure why this little girl with barley a layout was tumbling and not her. I would have thought they would have at least put her in the back of jumps but no she was right in front of me sitting and looking extremely sad. I asked ray what happened. 

"Well uhh she is the alternate to the little level 4 girl. She hasn't thrown any tumbling in the past few routines and its making us loose points so until she gets a standing two to full, roundoff handspring full and jumps to tuck she wont be competing or practice. I feel so bad for her and i know she can do it but she is just scared to do. I tried helping her. And everyone is upset and Jamie is devastated! Oh my gosh maybe you can help her! You have helped so many other girls and plus it will make Jamie like you again!!!" She said so excited. Like all i had to do was a magical wand and everything would be alright.

I was happy to help, even if Jamie still hated me in the end. I wouldn't do this for me, i would do it for her. I don't care that much about being hated. I know not everyone is going to like me. But i do know how it feels to have a mental block keep you from being your best. Cause a mental block is your brain telling you you cant do it and everything is going to go wrong when your body knows you can do and everything will be fine. I wouldn't wish that upon anyone because it is just awful to hate yourself for not doing everything you can for your team. And also knowing that there is someone in your spot. I decided then and there i was going to do, no matter what happened. 

 Mental blocks were the worst and i was good at helping overs overcome them. I went over to her hoping she would say yes...
