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. 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. Shaq has always been there as he is one of the leading creature’s toy but Shaq has his own people to make sure that Katie makes the decision he wants and needs. Katie and Dan’s relationship is tested when an ex-‘people’ of Shaq’s turns up to try and cause tensio


10. One mistake after another.


I opened my eyes and thought I saw Dan for a split second then he disappeared, “no…” I yelped as I pulled away from Darren. Darren also pulled away but still kept hold of one of my hands, “I’m sorry Darren, that shouldn't have happened… I love Dan. It is so wrong that I have three boys who think they love me at the same time. It is too much, I’m sorry!” I explained moving away and putting space between us at the same time I tried to avoid eye contact with him.
“I understand I think you don’t know who to choice right now. I get it, you need time.” Darren said sadly and I didn't know what to do. My head was telling me to take Darren’s hand in mine and kiss him but my heart told me not to! I felt confused, isolated. I had to find Dan soon and explain and I had an idea. “Darren, I love you like a friend I’m sorry but I really need your help to find Dan like now before it’s too late,” I pleaded while looking deeply into his eyes as I rose.
“I love you more than enough. If finding Kingsdale makes you happy, I will do it!” Darren explained squeezing my hand lightly. I sighed with relief that Darren understood how I felt even if he didn't feel the same and it will never be enough to give up on Dan. “Come on then, get your heads out of the clouds Katie!” Darren said smirking while dragging me out of my bedroom door just as I grabbed a jumper not knowing how long I would be looking but I wouldn't give up. “Sorry, let’s go…” I said then suddenly realizing, “…I don’t know where he lives!”
“Well, call him then stupid!” Darren chuckled to himself as I hit him lightly as I pulled my phone out my pocket causing him to wink at me. We walked downstairs and out the door in a few minutes when I called Dan’s phone when I looked up to see him leaning about an old lamp post opposite my house. Dan saw me and started to walk over; with every step he took I felt the tension build between us all especially Darren and Dan. Dan was about two meters away from Darren and me when he stopped, I decided to place myself in the middle and put myself closer to Dan. Dan looked me in the eyes and all I could see was betrayal and grief shine bright in his eyes. “Why?” is the only word Dan said quietly and I felt this urge just to run into his arms and kiss him, realization kicked in reminding me Darren was behind me and I couldn't hurt him. I mean he was willing to help me find Dan because he knew he made me happy. I couldn't do that now I know how he feels. “Dan…I…I” I stuttered, I had thought of everything I wanted to say but when the chance came to say it I couldn't  My head dropped in shame and tears began to fall, running down my cheeks. At that moment, I felt like my whole world had collapsed around me. No-one said anything for a while, it was uncomfortable, and then I felt a hand being gently placed on my shoulder. I looked to see who it was and saw Darren before me, half of me felt happy that Darren obviously cares however the other half was telling me to still run into Dan’s arms and plead for forgiveness. Darren gave me a secret smile and then started to explain while Dan patiently listened to every word, “don’t be angry at Katie. She has done nothing wrong, it was all me. She loves you truly with all her heart and she didn't kiss me I kissed her! She told me it was wrong that she loves you. If you’re going to be angry at anyone be angry at me not Katie!” Darren took his hand off my shoulder and started to walk away. I stopped him before he was out of reach, “thank you,” I said to him then let him go. I breathed heavily then turned towards Dan; he was looking down at the ground away from me, “Dan?” I questioned hoping he would just take me in his arms once again… that didn't happen, he done the complete opposite. He walked away. I felt so blue that I strolled back into my house in a sort of haze and went to my bedroom shutting the door behind me. Once I was behind my bedroom door I fell to the floor and cried for what felt like years… I knew I had lost Dan in that instant and all I knew was I loved him… I loved him with everything I had.

I felt and heard a gentle knock on my door, I moved myself allowing space for it to open. The door opened slowly to reveal my best friend standing there, Tom, he was still in his muddy football kit looking lost. He took me in his strong arms, “Katie, Darren told me everything. How are you feeling?” He questioned as he went to wipe the tears that lingered on my cheeks away.
“I … just… don’t know… what to… do …or say…” I whimpered while looking into his comforting eyes.
“Darren really shouldn't have told you everything he did it wasn't fair on you and of course he shouldn't have kissed you. Yet, Dan really shouldn't have got angry so quickly without knowing the scenario. They are both in the wrong,” Tom replied sending comfort in his words to me. He always knew what to say but the thing is I knew I was partially to blame as well.
“They may both be in the wrong but so am I. They both done what they did for a good reason in their hearts,” I said frustratingly.
“Yes I guess you’re right Katie but what’s happened from both of them doing so?” Tom responded with an intelligent tone but I knew he was trying to be sympathetic towards me. I never really liked to admit it but I knew deep down I had lost them right and what Tom was true. Tom knew as well so I felt there was no need admitting it or saying it out loud. I laid my head down on Tom’s chest and he hesitantly brought me closer to him, comforting me like he always did when I messed up my life. What was a lot! We lay together in complete silence as our chests rose and fell in rhythm and we didn't have to say a word out loud because we knew what we were thinking already without a word shared. I felt calm and safer with Tom but for some reason I was still quite confused and puzzled about something Darren had told me, which I must admit hadn't bothered me at the time but I knew it was something I needed to understand. “Tom… did Darren tell you everything he told me?” I questioned wondering if Darren had missed out the part where he said that Tom and Darren liked me more than friends. “Umm… I think so. He said he told you how I feel for you, that he kissed you and that’s it, anything else I should know about Katie?” Tom replied gently but his voice changed to quite stern when he asked if there was anything else he should know. I didn't know whether I should tell Tom that Darren told me how he felt about me or not. “Err… Umm… Don’t worry!” I stuttered to Tom but in the end knew it would be best not to tell him everything. Knowing Tom he would either freak out or do something incredibly dumb, stupid and dangerous. “Okay Katie, do you want me to try to talk to Dan for you?” Dan asked curiously.
“Thank you but I would rather do it myself if he will speak to me at all.” I replied thinking about what might happen really started to worry me. Tom sighed with relief and for the first time for two days I forgot about Daniel and everything he was involved with.  “How was football practice?” I said to get a new conversation going and to take my mind even further off everything.
“Mm… yeah okay but the guys missed you watching us because they couldn't try to impress and flirt with anyone!” Tom joked and winked at me.
“Hmm… they must have been really lost with who to flirt with!” I teased and gave Tom a playfully shove. He winked at me again and pulled me in for a bear hug, at that perfect moment everything was back to normal like before Daniel walked into our lives. “Coach told me to tell you he will speak to you when we are back at school in his office,” Tom told me with a confused look on his face.
“Oh okay thanks. I’m thinking of joining the athletics team because according to coach I’m good at it,” I explained half-heartily.
“Right that reminds me we have a game in three weeks, will you come?” Tom questioned with the impression he wanted me to come along.
“Of course, I love football games!” I announced enthusiastically as I really did love watching football games especially Tom’s matches.
“Good good! I’ll tell the boys to practice their chat-up lines then!” Tom joked while laughing his silent but manly laugh making me realize I did have deep feelings for this boy but I couldn't do anything about it for now. We could easily tell what the other was thinking, we knew how we felt with just one look, we knew everything about each other and more but he was like a brother. I kept thinking about how we would be as a couple and I took a look at Tom and straight away knew he was thinking the same. I wanted to tell him how I felt but I had been through too much in one day with Dan and Darren that telling Tom how I felt would ruin yet another relationship and I couldn't lose him. We carried on just lying there for about fifteen minutes and Tom’s phone beeped making me jump slightly. He pulled his phone out and I could see it was a text from his mum, Kathy, saying she would pick him up from mine on her way home after her yoga class and will be there in around five minutes. I sat up and Tom slowly rose, he turned to face me and gave me a quick hug whispering that he was only a call or text or walk away just as the doorbell rang downstairs. I smiled at Tom as he left, however the minute he left I felt isolated once again because everyone has gone and left, I had no-one to speak to, Robbie was too busy to talk and I didn't want to talk to my mu for many obvious and personal reasons. I was left alone with my thoughts and all I could think about was how Dan’s mood changed with a click of your fingers. He saw me and seemed all happy and lovey-dovey, then says he saw something he didn't like he would turn all aggressive and over protective! I longed to be in his arms safe and sound but he wouldn't even listen to my point of view or let me explain. I knew if it was any boy I would say he wasn't worth it and move on but it was Dan… I loved him with all my heart!
