I walked over to beam with my hands shaking. I hated beam more than anything. Who thought of doing flips on a 4 inch wide metal platform? (I know I didn’t.) But I knew I had to be brave so I carefully climbed onto the top of the beam. “How about we do some kicks.” April said. Everyone sighed but I grinned. This was the one thing I wasn’t terrible at on beam. I swung my right leg into the air as hard as I could until it reached my nose. But then I feel myself falling backward... and the nightmare began. My butt slammed onto the beam and I started to fall. My left arm swung around and stopped me from falling to my face. For a millimeter of a second I was happy but then I felt a horrible and agonizing pain in my arm. I let out the loudest scream and looked down at my arm. The bone had gone sideways and was hardly staying in my skin. All of the coaches rushed over to me with terrified looks on their faces.
They wrapped my arm in ice and carried me to the lobby. Ava held my hand and my mom called my aunt to come and take Ava. A couple minutes later a coach carried me out to my mom’s car and put me in the backseat. My mom opened the door with a look of panic in her eyes, but I could tell she was trying to stay calm which made me feel better.
Twenty minutes later we pulled into a parking spot. “Are you ok?” my mom asked.
“Ah… no.” I responded trembling.
My mom got out of the car and slowly picked me up. She dropped me in a wheelchair and wheeled me into the hospital. My mom told a receptionist what had happened. We waited in a chair for 15 minutes and then a nurse came out. She took me into the x-ray room and told me to relax. The nurse wheeled me next to a metal platform. My arm was lined up right next to it. The nurse then walked out of the room. I heard a click and then she came back in. My mom came into the x-ray room and wheeled me through the hallway. We then went into a room with a white hospital bed. The nurse and my mom lift me onto the bed, I lean my head back then feel a pinch in my right arm. I sit back up and there is a needle in my arm. My mom comes over and holds my hand. I look at her and then i close my eyes.
