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. Basically, Katie is a girl with a gift but this gift can turn into a weapon very quickly. She has lived more than once and this is her sixteenth time.

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.

9. Jealousy and a little bit of realization.

 

I felt so angry at Harry but he was saved as I heard my phone ring on my bed, I walked over to pick it up facing away from Harry, I answered it, “Hello?”

“Hey Katie,” replied a voice that I straight away knew was Dan’s.

“Hey Dan, how did you get my number?” I replied sweetly trying to mute any anger that I felt for Harry.

“Tom let me have your number gorgeous!”

“Oh right, that makes more sense!”

“Can you please walk to your front door please?”

“Okay…” I said confused as I hobbled my way downstairs and towards the door, unlocking it and letting it swing open to see a massive, blood red bouquet of freshly-picked roses with an aroma so breath-taking. Dan appeared from behind the bouquet, smiling like a clown, “Hey gorgeous!” He said while he kissed my lips and passed me the bouquet that felt heavy even though they were only flowers. “Heyya, bunking school?” Dan chuckled and I made more room for him to come into my house so I could close the door, preventing any heating leaving the house. “Red roses for the beautiful Katelynn,” Dan announced facing me looking adorable. I hugged him to show my appreciation of such a romantic gift; I observed my roses to see there was a glistening fake rose in the middle of the bouquet, “why is there a fake rose?” I questioned not understanding there whole concept.

“Because I am going to use the saying, ‘I will love you until the last rose dies’” Dan replied confidently, I smiled and kissed him to show him I was appreciative. “Good choice of words,” snarled a voice from behind me sounding to similar to Shaq’s, “to be honest I have always hated love.”

“Shaq sent you to be sure and what a disappointment for him,” Dan snarled back sending a shiver down my spine.

“Yes he did and all is well I see so I will be off!” The voice said more calmly. Dan just nodded and I heard him sigh, “that was one of Shaq’s people…. He has a lot!” Dan explained before I could ask making me realize how stiff and on edge I had become, I calmed myself and turned around just to make sure the ‘thing’ was gone for good then questioned, “will I meet more?” I knew the answer with just one look at Dan, so he didn't bother replying. I suddenly remembered that Harry was upstairs well the last I remember he was, I turned around and made my way upstairs, not knowing if Dan followed or not. I was cautious to open the door not knowing if Harry would still be there or not. I opened my door to see my bedroom empty and the window fully open, letting in a chilling breeze, I saw a folded piece of paper on my bed and picked it up, it said:

Have a nice life, Harry x

I was confused about the note when I heard my door shut. I felt familiar, warm arms go around my waist; they froze as Dan must have read the note over my shoulder. “Was Harry here?” Dan asked with an angry tone and removing my arms from around my waist taking any comfort with him.

“Yes but…” I said as Dan cut me off, “well...” Dan moved as far away from me as my room would allow, his back against my door with an expression of pure thunder, “he turned up about ten minutes before you called me. We talked that was it, he annoyed me so I called him a jerk because of something he said and asked him to leave, that was all I promise Dan!” I explained pleadingly.

“Why did he say to you, Katie?” Dan aggressively announced I was too scared to even move, wondering what Dan might do I couldn't reply shivering. He repeated what he said and I replied close to tears, “he said I started l flirting with him the minute we met and I have feelings for him…but….but…but…I DON’T! I love you Dan, only you!” Dan’s expression was pure hatred as I saw him turn around and punch the wall to the right of him; I was petrified thinking he may hit me next. Dan pulled his arm away from the wall and his hand was bleeding with gashes along his knuckles. “Ouch, fuck!” Dan said as he gripped his hand, I knew he was in pain and I wanted to help even if it put me in danger. I hobbled out the room when Dan moved towards my desk chair to fetch a towel from the airing cupboard to prevent the bleeding. When I got back he was still sitting with tears rolling down his cheeks, sobbing. I walked over to him slowly, taking my time to see if he would flip again and I passed him the towel. “I’m…I’m…sorry…Katie…I….was…a…jerk!” Dan announced through tears, I pulled him towards the bed and sat down with him sitting next to me, I gave him a hug to try and reassure him. I cleaned up his knuckles, covered the enormous hole in my wall with an old paramore poster and bandaged his hand with another tea towel before I spoke, “I should be the one apologizing, and you hurt yourself because of me. I’m so sorry Dan, you are not a jerk you did it with the best intentions honestly. You are the perfect boyfriend I could ever ask for and you love me! What more can I ask for?” I tidied away all the towels now covered in blood, placing them in an old wicket wash bin then I sat back down next to Dan and he automatically put his good arm around me pulling me closer to the comfort of his body. “I love you not Harry!” I whispered against his lips then kissed him as he was about to speak, I could tell he was surprised and shocked by my act of affection but he leaned in for more. Dan finally pulled away and went to take hold of my hand forgetting about the damage he had inflicted on his self. “OUCH, F***! THAT HURTS!” Dan yelped as he pulled away.

“I’m….I’m…I’m sorry! It’s my fault!”  I said while trying to hold back the tears as they weld up in my eyes. “Katie…” Dan said soothingly with pitiful glance, “I should go!” Dan stood up, opened my door and left without a good-bye. I felt so empty without Dan as tears began to fall down my cheeks, landing on my shaking hands. I lay down on my bed and cried all my emotions away and out of my body.

I heard my door slowly open, telling me to sit up and I saws Darren walk into my room, “Hey gorgeous!” He announced with a flirty tone. I braved a weak smile as Darren took his place next to me on my bed. “Hey Darren, what are you doing here?” I replied half-heartily, I felt drained and need to rest. Darren lifted a bag, which I didn't notice before, and realized it was Tom’s new school bag, “the front door was open and Tom asked me to bring round his school books for you because he has some kind of sports club on, I think.” Darren explained as he placed the blue rucksack on the edge of my bed.

“Oh yeah, thank you and could you say thank you to Tom when he gets home from football as well please!” I said calmly trying to act happy even though inside I felt like a slumping zombie. Darren smiled but he had an edge to his movements like he was being watched as he made himself more comfortable on my bed. “S’alright, you mean a lot to Tom and him to you.” I rolled my eyes, “don’t deny it; I see it in both of your eyes when you’re around each other.” I smiled at the thought of how happy Tom makes me, but realizing he was being off with me recently. “Yeah, we make each other happy. He is like a brother to me but every time I get a boyfriend he turns against me and acts as though I have killed someone?” I said unimpressed by the way Tom was acting around me and Dan from day one.

“There’s only one reason behind that and I’m surprised you haven’t figured it out yet. He’s in love with you! He isn't the only one willing to do anything for you if you would just notice him!” Darren said shyly, I was unsure what he meant as he leaned closer and before I knew it he kissed me. His strong arms encircled my body taking me in; I opened my eyes shocked by such an action!
