Once Jade arrived home, she couldn't wait to tell her mom about the gymnastics try-outs at her high school.
Hi Mom! Guess what? There's going to be gymnastics try-outs tomorrow! I've been training for so long, and if I make the team, it will be awesome, don't you think!
Jade was furious with her mother, and she didn't care whether or not she doesn't want her to try-out.
Jade... We've been over this before, you are too tall to do gymnastics. Why can't you focus on a different sport, like volleyball? You are very good at that and they could use a player like you.
She couldn't believe what her mother said... Jade let all her anger out on her mom.
UGH! So stupid!
Can't you get over that stupid stereotype? If I make the team, it will be a great opportunity to qualify for college gymnastics! I can get into an amazing school with a scholarship! Bye, mom. I will go now since you won't listen to me.
Fine then, don't listen to me.
The next day, despite everything that happened with her mother, Jade strived to make the team with her friends, even though she was much taller than them.
Litte did Jade and her friends know, that the girl on the very left did not want them to be on the team, especially Jade (because of her height). Of course, they did find this out, but not until after the try-outs.
Yeah! Of course! We're the best!
I'm excited to try-out! I think we all will make it since we've been training for many years!
The next day, the list of the people who made the team were on the board in the dancing room.
Jade was super excited. She couldn't wait to go home and tell her mom about it.
PEOPLE WHO MADE THE TEAM: Jade Sam Ruby Olivia
Even though a lot of things happened with her mom, Jade knew that her mom would be at least a bit happy.
Oh really? What is it? And come inside.
Mom! I'm home! I have exciting news!
Although Jade thought she mom would be mad, it actually turned out differently.
Oh... I didn't expect that. You know what, ignore what I told you yesterday about that you can't qualify for the team. I was very angry yesterday. But, I'm happy you are! Let's go celebrate with milkshakes!
Okay, the news I was going to tell you was that... I MADE THE TEAM!!! Aren't you happy for me? I hope you are, because of what happened yesterday...
