Williams: no but I don't think your parents would see it that way do you
Taylor: your not going to tell them are you
Williams: they need to know what kind of trainer they've got for there daughter but then again I don't think your too innocent in this do you and if I wasn't to tell your parents I don't think I'd be able to let this go remember you have a very important chemistry exam coming up that your parents expect you to pass be a shame for you to let them down wouldn't it
Tom: you can't do that
Williams: I'd watch it if I were you it's your job on the line too
Taylor: you can't fail me for this
Williams: just watch me so what's it going to be tell your parents or fail exam

Taylor: yes
Julie: how could you he's way to old for you and not to mention he's your trainer not for much longer though
Taylor: no you can't sack him
John: calm down dear. Why didn't you tell us about this?
Taylor: why do you think the way she's reacting?
Julie: can you blame me what about the age difference among a million other things

Taylor: well that can be soon sorted I'll move out
John: now hang on a minute Julie she's right we can't tell her how to live her life no more Taylor wait outside a minute please wile I have a word with your mum

Taylor walked outside but listened through the door

John: we can't tell her what to do any more whether we like it or not and they've not broken the law it's just your bubby Williams trying to get her into shit again why do you listen to him
Julie: if it wasn't for him we still wouldn't know about this thank god he told us
John: yeh and I bet him telling us must have killed him. Shouting at her and trying to control her will just push her away more whether you like it or not we'll have to accept this
Julie: fine then but I really don't like this and oh no what will the family say
John: so screw them there not perfect Taylor you can come in now and stop listening through he door
Taylor: how did you know?
John: I know my daughter

Taylor: horrible they're sewing you and I can never compete again
Tom: They didn't
Taylor: nah I'm just kidding
Tom: waiter give me a heart attack what did they really say no meeting this time

They both laughed unaware that her parents were watching

Taylor: mum didn't take it too well but dad was totally on my side
Tom unbelievable
Taylor: I know but there is one down side I'm not allowed to see you until the exams are over
Tom: but don't the exams last for the two weeks that you're at home between the competition
Taylor: yeh I know but if we don't want them to completely flip and stop us seeing each other and me competing that's what we'll have to do I can still train though but without you


The day of the final competition Tom and Julie and John were in the stands watching Taylor come first in both competitions again. Taylor in her room packing; talking on the phone to Jackie.

Taylor: yes so I'm on my way home and when I get home I can't see Tom till after the exams which means he won't be able to train me for the final of the competition which sucks because I' gunna do crap now after missing two weeks of training... yeh well I can still train myself but the whole point of having a personal trainer is for them to help you improve...ok see you when I get home see ya.

Jackie: yeh you seem a little stressed too
Taylor: a little stressed I'm a bit more than that I'm not allowed to see Tom not even to train until I've finished these exams which means I'm really gunna suck in the competition which might affect my chances at eventing but then if I mess up these exams there will be no eventing my heads spinning.
