No more chances.

Katie meets Daniel and they fall in love straight away. Yet, Katie thinks she knows Dan from before and he can read her thoughts, he is secretive and knows a lot more than he lets on.

Every sixteenth birthday Katie appears in front of a court of ‘creatures; and is given a choice between three boys, the one she picks will be in her life the next time (she has always picked Dan because she always falls in love with him). But, now on her sixteenth time she will get one choice but no more chances, the decision she makes will stay and the people she doesn’t pick will disappear or die.

3. First encounter

I reached the park gate opposite the school and saw Dan at the bottom of the field, I ran towards him suddenly feeling

safe now I could see him again! He must of heard me because the minute I went to tap his back he turned round. I kissed

him and whispered “hey”. He smiled straight away making me feel comfortable and nearly get lost in his smile as he responded, “hi”, while pulling me into his arms for a hug. I suddenly saw an inflamed cut on the side of his neck that

ended just above his shoulder blade. I touched it and he cowered away, I could help but think: who hurt you? “It’s

another long story you won’t understand, not yet anyway! Also before you ask how I telepathically communicated with you

and how I read your thoughts, it’s a long story as well!” Dan announced politely and then he kissed me again. I felt

really tranquil around Dan and I knew I loved him. “Oh okay, as long as you didn’t get hurt because of me.” I replied

pulling away because I heard someone calling my name. I turned around again, unable to see anyone, however Dan

stiffened and pulled me closer, he whispered in my ear, “close your eyes and please do not open them even if you hear

me or anyone begging you to, please for me… please!” I did as I was told just as I felt a gust of wind circle us making

me feel surrounded. Dan bellowed to this thing, “Leave her alone she deserves to live after sixteen times, do you want

to lose her as well? Please I beg you!”

“Come on, why not! One more time won’t make a difference will it… oh right I just remembered the choice she’ll have to make… I would go for the second option!” A voice announced after a pause it then continued, “Are you going to open

your eyes Katelynn or do I have to get someone else to ask you?” Whatever it was, was mocking me, playing games

like Darren. I felt a sharp pain from behind me and suddenly I wasn’t in Dan’s arms anymore, all I could hear was

chocking noises. My emotions went wild at this point; I was anxious, petrified, worried, miserable and suffering! I was

about to open my eyes but then I remember what Dan said about not opening them for anyone or anything. I had to,

the thing was hurting him! I opened my eyes and saw Dan’s face; it was a shocked and pleading expression. Then I

saw it! It was facing away from me looking into the distance, it had the shape of a teenage boy but it turned around,

it’s face was nowhere near human, the creatures eyes were white like they had been drained of all signs of life, the

only other feature it had was his lips, blood red lips. The creature smiled at me and all I could focus on was the

shining knife like teeth, they looked as sharp as a new sword. I suddenly felt threatened however infuriated at this

beast. It was hurting Dan and that was not right. I had to stop it from hurting Dan but how? That’s when I suddenly

had an idea, I don’t know if it was a good one but it is the only choice I have! “I have my eyes open, look.” I announced

then pleaded, “Please just leave Dan alone.” The creature turned around to face me, the chocking sounds stopping

short as the creature came closer and closer to me, until he was right up close and he looked me in the eyes, “I see

you two already have developed a soft spot for each other, how sweet!” He said making me cringe at his snarling

voice. I was about to reply when I felt my feet leave the ground and was thrown at a speed that when I land I heard

an ear-splitting crack. I hit my head against something behind me. Everything went black.

“Leave her alone Shaq! I have conquered you once and will do it again!” Dan snarled and hurling forward to where Shaq was

standing grinning mockingly, Dan was about a metre away when Shaq moved out of the way and Dan landed in a pile on the floor,

I let out a yelp… please let him be okay! Dan snarled, Shaq laughed, “I will leave but I swear on my oath that I will come back!” The

now known creature announced. I looked up shocked to see Dan towering over me as Shaq disappeared; he looked around and

slowly bent down so he was on his knees next to me. “Katie, can you hear me? If you can please move or say something

please!” He pleaded while taking me in to his warm, safe arms. I squeezed his hand feeling a stabbing pain in my ankle, pushing

it aside I said to Dan, “Hi” his expression was both overjoyed and shocked; at first I felt worried, however he replied sweetly,

“You’re okay! I love you Katie, I will protect you much better next time!”

“I love you too! Next time?” I replied and groaned at the fact that it might happen again, when I suddenly heard someone calling

my name in the distance and I suddenly remembered what happened at school. “Oh my god! I completely forgot about Robbie, Tom

and the jerk!” I announced while trying to stand up. I felt pain overtake my body as my ankle let go on me, Dan caught me and

explained, “You are too hurt to stand or walk that distance, I will go and get them for you please, just stay seated!” He kissed me as

he went to find them for me. I felt a spine-tingling wind surround me and felt so lonely, knowing when Dan got back I wouldn’t

let him leave again!
