Gold for the gold part 1

It was a beautiful December; a woman with long red hair, and was dressed in a pink shirt with matching pants, and red sneakers. She was heading to a gymnastics school. Inside the school were numerous boys doing gymnastics. Then a handsome looking man with graying dirty blonde hair, and a black outfit came in. He was, "Robert, "Rex" Marston". "Mrs. Bowerman," he said, "I like to talk to you."

She walked into his office, where there were numerous pictures of his best gymnasts. Naomi and Rex sat down. Rex said, "Hello Naomi. It's been one week since your husband died in that fire."

"Yeah," she said, "He was visiting a friend when his friend forgot to turn off the stove, "Avery" got trapped and didn't make it out on time and I miss him."

Rex said, "And just to let you know, you're fired."

Naomi was shocked on her getting fired. "You we're co-owners Rex." said Naomi.

"True, and there's no way a woman can do it." said Rex.

Naomi got mad, packed up her things and left. As she was leaving, a woman with long orange hair, glasses, a red sports jacket, a brown skirt, red socks and brown sneakers came in. She was Mr. Marston's assistant, "Jaime McPherson".

"Mr. Marston, she asked, "Did you just fire Mrs. Bowerman, she's been a good teacher here ever since you hired Mr. Bowerman 15 years ago."

"Yeah, but she's a woman." Rex said," Jaime, don't send out her last paycheck."

Outside the office, Jaime didn't know what he said, "I think he said, "Do" send her a check." she said. She went to the accounting building and wrote out a check for 500 dollars. Back in a 2-story home, Naomi was relaxing and cleaning up the house. As she was dusting the pictures, she saw a picture of her late husband. He had short blond hair and a mustache. Then two twin girls came in. One had long red hair, blue eyes, and wore a periwinkle t-shirt, dark periwinkle shorts, white socks and sneakers named, "Carissa" and the other twin had short blonde hair, a gray jacket, a white t-shirt, leaned shorts, white shoes and sneakers named, "Carli".

"Hi Mom!" said Carissa. "What's wrong?" asked Carli.

"Are you still moping about Dad?", asked Carissa.

Naomi sadly said, "Yes, and I got fired because my boss thinks girls can't do gymnastics, but we'll be okay." The next morning, The Dobermans were making pancakes. Naomi had a pink nightgown on, Carissa had a periwinkle nightgown, and

Carli had a gray nightgown. After Carli was done with her pancakes, she got the mail. In the mail was her mom's last paycheck. She showed it to her mother. As Naomi opened the check, she noticed a 500-dollar paycheck from The Mars ton Gymnastics School. "Girls," Naomi said with a smile, "I think we finally have enough to open a gymnastics school of our own in honor of your father." "He will be so proud Mommy!" Carissa exclaimed.

Over the next three weeks, Naomi found an old gymnasium and decided to use it as a gymnastics school. As the workers remodeled the place, Naomi knew she had to advertise her school so everyone can know about it. She put out fliers, gave out a radio announcement and told it to her friends.

three weeks later, Naomi had opened her new Gymnastics school, "The Bowerman Gymnastics School for girls". There 16 girls from ages 8-12 girls came in. They all sat on the floor lounge, couch, and chairs.

Naomi came up and said, "Hello girls, and welcome to, "The Bowerman Gymnastics School for girls". Since it's our first day, let's get to know each other."

After they got to know each other, Naomi replied, "Good, now that we all know each other," said Naomi, "Show hands, who has done it before?"

Only seven girls raised their hands, "Only half of you?" said Naomi. "Luckily, I'll teach you all about gymnastics."

The next day was the first day of practice, all of the girls were wearing different leotards.

A blonde girl named, "Reagan" did a round off, another blonde girl named, "Teagan" did a hand stance, A Jamaican girl named, "Vanessa" did a 1 1/2 twist turn, A Peruvian girl named, "Nadia" did tumbling dance moves, An Indian girl named, "Renee" did a round off with 2 turns, A Mexican girl named, "Cora" did 3 back handsprings, and a short haired blonde girl named, "Delaney" did a single front salto.

During the practice, the girls did the floor routines wrong. Naomi thought she could turn on music and the minute she did the disco song, "Top Of Fire" the girls got focus and got some of the routines right.

A few days later when they were practicing the horse, A Native American girl named, "Lyric" saw Mr. Marston and asked Mrs. Bowerman, "Mrs. Bowerman, who's the weird guy in the black track suit?"

Mrs. Bowerman turned her head and saw Rex, "Rex!" said Mrs. Bowerman in a horrified look.

"This is your team?" Rex said, "Please, what a bunch of circus clowns. I don't even like the circus because of all their lousy acts. My students told me about your team and I thought I would make a solo trip while I cancel class for the day."

Mrs. Bowerman said, "Girls, this is my old boss, "Rex Marston."

Teagan asked, "You really owned a gymnastics school, "Mr. Martian"?"

They girls started laughing at him. "It's "Mars ton" you brats!" said Mr. Marston.

A Norwegian girl named, "Vile" said, "If you say so, "Mr. Martian"."

They kept laughing. Then he left with an angry look.

"Listen girls," said Naomi, "I'm going to be talking to your legal guardians/parents tonight here. You girls will have a slumber party tonight, though I haven't decided where should be the location." Nadia answered, "I use my sister's room as a gymnastics training room, we can have a slumber party there."

The other girls agreed with Nadia's idea.

"I'll bring the snacks, I know how to make a good Indian curry." said Renee.

"I'll get the party games. We own a lot of board games back home." said Vilje.

"I'll get the arts and crafts. My parents have a lot of arts and crafts supplies" said a Japanese girl named, "Kailee".

The girls were excited about this. The twins went up to their mom. "This is the first time we sleep outside of home without you." said Carissa.

"As long as you to listen to each other," said Naomi "You'll be fine, girls."

Later at The Mangiapane residents, the girls were enjoying themselves. Leaving Reagan in charge because she's the oldest. They practiced their gymnastics, ate snacks, braided each other's hair, and have a good time. Teagen was doing Mr. Marston impressions while Sparrow and a Moroccan girl named, "Elaine" laugh with her. "I've came to Earth to make gymnastics looks like a circus!" said Teagen while she does her Mr. Marston impressions.

"Oh Mr. Martian, please don't turn us into monkeys." said a hippie named, "Sparrow".

"Too Late, I'm going to with my armpit farts." Teagen said as she did armpit farts while Sparrow and Elaine acted like monkeys.

Meanwhile at the gymnastics school, numerous adults were there.

"Settle down people." Naomi said, "Now, your children have been getting a rough start, but I made a discovery that when I put on disco music, they start working hard on their routines. In 2 weeks is the tournament." Jaime raised her hand and said, "Mr. Marston sent me here to let you know he's letting your team compete. He has his soaps on now and doesn't want to miss an episode. If you win you keep your school and if you loose you shut down forever."

Naomi was shocked by the news.
