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


4. Why do you leave?

“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! After a few minutes I heard voices getting closer, I knew who they belonged to before I could see their faces. A couple of seconds later, I saw Dan, Robbie and Tom’s faces appear in front of me. They were running as fast as they could without worrying too much. Dan was first to get to me and I fell into his safe, open arms, then I heard Robbie and Tom drop to the ground in front of me being careful to avoid my ankle. “Are you okay Katie? Dan filled us in on what happened, how’s your ankle?” Robbie questioned with an un-eased edge I knew he was worried. I took his hand hoping to reassure him. “I’m fine but my ankle does hurt a bit I have to admit.” I replied hoping he would not be so worried. Before Tom or Robbie could speak I heard a worried voice that I did not expect to hear from the distance, “is Katie okay?” At first I had second thoughts about it being Darren, but when Dan tightened his grip on me and groaned I knew it was, “why do you care?” Dan whispered so only I could pick it up. I thought about if Darren tried to threaten Dan; however I pushed that thought aside because Dan and Robbie saw my expression was scared, I didn't want them to worry any more than they were already! “I’m fine and why do you care?” I shouted in reply hoping Darren would pick up on the hatred and nobody else would. “Okay ‘cause you’re my brother’s girl!” He said angrily and I looked at Dan as I saw him tense beside me then Tom suddenly feeling very protective over Dan and Tom because of the way Darren said ‘my brother’s girl’. I looked up and saw him approaching; Dan must have seen him as well because he took hold of one of hands and with the other tightened his grip around my waist. . “It’s okay!” I whispered so quietly only Dan could probably just about hear it. After I said this his gripped loosened a little and Darren reached us. He joined us on the floor and gave me a sympathetic glance for a split second, and then he just stared down at the ground, making no eye contact with anyone. I felt like reaching out to him however I decided against the idea because of the built up tension between him and Dan. “Should we go back to school?” I announced while still having hold of Dan’s hand very tightly, he was my only support. “Katie, school finished when the fire got out of control but it was only half the school so we might have to go in still!” Tom explained, “I also called your mum to say we were going to the park with Robbie for a bit.” I must have lost track of time. I had a flash-back of when Shaq took control over Dan, all I could see was Dan’s expression… I hated Shaq! Darren interrupted my thoughts and said, “ Shouldn't we try and get Katie on her feet so we can get her home!” He went to take me from Dan but both Dan and Tom glared at him un-moving. “I think Darren is right I need to get up and on my feet. Even if it means making it home with all your help or input.” I explained looking at Tom and Dan so they would go along with it. Robbie who had been very quiet the whole time suddenly announced, “We need to get Katie home because she wants to, so leave your petty squabbling until later, okay?” Everyone was astonished by this so we just nodded along. I suggested, “Dan you take my back, Darren and Tom take my sides and sorry Robbie but could you just be back-up because with them lot supporting me, I should be fine!” 
“I don’t know Katie! Are you sure you’re not in any sort of pain?” Dan replied politely and his own expression just showed pain. I couldn't see him like this but I wanted to get home as soon as possible, so I replied, “With three people supporting me I should be fine. I just want to get home Dan even if I have a little pain to get there!” Dan only nodded in response but I knew he still wasn't happy with the arrangements even when they were my idea! “I could take your legs Katie; I am stronger than you think!” Robbie explained and I knew he wanted to show all of us he wasn't my weak little brother anymore. I thought about it and knew straight away it was a really good idea because it meant my ankle would have no weight on it at all. “If you’re sure you can hold me Robbie. I think it is a great idea! Can we get to my house now because I am knackered?” I explained just as Tom and Darren moved to my sides waiting for Dan to let me go. I thought to myself I want to get home and then I was in hysterics. Everyone’s face looked either shocked or sympathetic. “Katie, please don’t cry,” Dan pleaded as he started to move away but I clung to him and wouldn't let him go! In the end Dan held me in his arms kissing my forehead as I cried my heart out. 

Ten minutes later, I stopped crying and Dan held me until the others were holding me steady and safely, then he supported my head and shoulders. “Are you in pain?” Dan questioned worryingly.
“I’m fine, I can’t feel any pain. Don’t worry!” I explained while smiling, “Robbie will you lead the way home please.” I looked at him and saw a massive grin on his face. I felt really proud of him and made a mental note to tell him later or I may embarrass him. I looked up to see where we were, to realize we were only a few houses away from mine, I felt shocked and happy because I thought it would be an agonizing journey.  “Stop! I want to try and walk on my ankle!” I explained then turned around to Dan as they put me down, “Please support me and just you!”
“Of course!” Dan replied willingly and he kissed me in front of them. I was happy he wasn't worried about what they thought about him however I was. “Okay enough kissing,” Tom said jokingly  “I thought you wanted to get home Katie!” 
“Okay, let’s go!” I announced with a big grin on my face. Dan put his arms around me and I began to walk but at the top of my driveway he picked me up in his arms and carried me to my front door. No-one said anything not even Darren, they were either okay with it or pissed off… My mum opened the door and was in a state of shock as Robbie showed Dan were to put me down in the living room. As Dan put me down my mum said, “What happened, Katie?” Luckily Dan replied for me, “She fell over at the park and landed on her ankle awkwardly, Miss Hill!”
“Oh my poor baby girl, thank you for bringing her back home all of you!” She said while kneeling down beside me, “are you in pain?"
“No, I’m just very sleepy. Dan can you take me to my room please?” I said politely and Dan took me in his arms again, this time everyone showed me to my bedroom. Well everyone except Darren, obviously Tom guessed what I was thinking by my facial expression because he said, “he wanted to get home, sorry Katie!” I just shrugged my shoulders in reply and nodded. Dan put me down on my bed and everyone left us alone. “Why did they do that?” I said but Dan didn't understand so I explained, “leaving me without a goodbye or an actual reason!” 
“Because they don’t know me so well, so this means they don’t know what to do or say around us. That’s all Hun.” He explained sweetly and I tried to tell myself it was the truth even if I didn't believe it… “I want them to be able to trust you like I do already.” I said half-heartily because I kept yawning as I spoke. 
“I should go, you need to sleep!” Dan said with an empty feel as he got up off my bed, I grabbed his arm and pleaded, “please don’t leave me, I don’t feel safe without you!” He obviously understood or didn't want to see me upset because he moved back on to my bed so he could hug me and he slowly rocked me to sleep like I was a little child. “I love you,” I whispered while he carried on rocking me peacefully, “I love you too. Now please sleep, you need it!” Dan replied harmoniously and kissed me on the lips. I thought I won’t be able to get to sleep if you do that, because I’ll just want more. Dan must have read my thoughts because at the same time he chuckled quietly and whispered, “Try.” That is the last thing I heard as I fell into a peaceful sleep.

I woke up to find myself lying under my patch-work blanket and to see Dan sitting in my nan’s antique rocking chair, that was placed in the far left corner of my room next to my window, with a family photo album flicking through carefully and it looked as though he was trying to take in every tiny detail of the pictures he saw. I sighed and Dan turned round to face me with a calm look on his face, “Hello angel, are you okay? Not in any pain at all?” He questioned while placing the photo album under his arm and walking over to my bed and sitting on the opposite end of my bed, putting as much space as the bed would allow between us. He seemed as though he was worried that if he came to close he may hurt me? “Hello yourself, I’m fine and not in any type of pain, how is your neck?” I answered as I slowly moved closer to him then gave him a peck on his cheek. He slowly pulled away from me whilst touching his neck where the deep cut was and I saw him shiver. “It feels a bit tingly but fine otherwise.” He replied and wrapped his arms around me just as I heard footsteps on the stairs. I looked at Dan, not knowing what to do as he let me go and ducked under my bed. I lay back down in my blanket, slowed my breathing and pretended to be asleep just as I heard my door start to creak as someone stepped into my room. “Katie? Katie?” My mum whispered stepping closer to my bed, but I stayed quiet reminding myself to breathe slow, “I tried.” My mum said, I knew she has said her thoughts out loud by mistake not knowing that I had heard her as she left my room. I heard the stairs creak and knew she had gone back down to where she came from. I was slightly confused about what she said, however I completely forgot about that because I heard a light tapping on my window. Once again I got distracted as Dan had me in his arms and his lips were against mine. “You were such a cute baby, you know!” He murmured against my lips. I couldn't think of a response, so I just nodded. Then, Dan slowly pulled away and took out the photo album from under his arm, flicking through it once again until he found the right page. He showed me a picture of a chubby, emerald green eyed baby with snow-blonde ringlet hair and in the picture I had a massive toothy grin on my face. “What’s wrong with that?” Dan questioned while pointing at the bay photo of me. Looking at me now you honestly wouldn't think it was the same baby except for the eyes. “Umm… EVERYTHING!” I explained to him with an unimpressed face and I gave him a playful shove. “I disagree, you look absolutely adorable!” Dan replied guilty like he was admitting a crime.
“If you think I look ‘absolutely adorable’ there, what do I look like now?” I answered, trying to mimic his voice but failing terribly. 
“You’re are gorgeous and no other girl can be compared to you because in my eyes you are the most beautiful girl I know, I love you!” He replied nearly announcing it and I was so happy that I kissed him to show my appreciation to such a compliment even if I didn't believe it one bit. I smiled at Dan and responded, “Thank you but I don’t believe it! I love you so much.” I put my arms around his neck pulling him closer to me, I realized he smelt like nothing I had never smelt before, but it was like heaven! “Why won’t you admit it? Also it is six o’clock you may want to get some food otherwise you will be hungry later!” He said politely and I was shocked to find out it was only six, I thought it was much later than that! “Really? I thought it was around nine or later and don’t you need to go home then?” I commented as he let go of me, got off my bed and offered his hand as support. I took it just as he explained to me, “I don’t live with my parents, I don’t know them… I live by myself, well kind of. So I can stay here until you want me to go!”
“Oh, that is really sweet of you and don’t say that because I won’t want you to leave ever! You do need to eat though, or wash!”
“I will be fine Katie! I’m not complaining, I’m your hostage!” He explained, but I didn't believe the first bit one bit! 
“I will go downstairs and get some food, then bring it up for us to share, okay?” I protested as I hobbled towards my bedroom door.
