DanIsNotOnFire Has My Heart On Fire

Skye is your average girl, bubbly, fun and has that one big crush. Not Harry Styles, not Josh hutcherson, but a boy who used to live around the corner from her, but barely knows her. Dan Howell, aka Danisnotonfire.

I'm going to have to put this story up to a higher rating for such adult themes- I hope you don't mind! Also I just want to say that self harm is NEVER an answer. Although here I describe it as a great release for Skye it won't make your problems go away. In fact it will only make your problems worse. So please guys- find healthier ways to deal with emotions. Thanks for reading!

10. A New Beginning

Before I proceeded to meet up with Jackie I went back to my place to do a few things.

To begin with I took a shower and washed my hair. I threw my clothes in to the washing basket and got changed.

After I decided I looked presentable enough to be seen by others I did a quick tidy of my room and hoovered it. I vowed I would come back later and give my home some tender loving care.

I had made plans to meet Jackie at her house as her family were out so I drove to hers at around 1pm. She wanted the ins and outs of everything that had happened with Dan and Phil since Za Za Bazaar like any best friend would.

I arrived at her house and knocked on her door. "SKYE!" I heard Jackie shout as she rushed to the door to let me in. "Hey!" I greeted her; pulling her in for a friendly hug.

We made our way in to the living room where two cups of coca cola sat. Trust Jackie to be prepared.

Jackie got right down to business. "So tell me everything!"

I explained to her about the meal (she even wanted to know what I ate) and how the conversation went. I told her how nice Phil was, how handsome Dan was in real life and explained how I made them food...and how Phil told me Dan was like a whole new person around me.

I then rewound the story and told Jackie the most important bit...me dating Dan.

"SKYE THIS IS AMAZING!" she exclaimed as if this was the most important news she ever heard. "Do you honestly have feelings for him?"

"Honestly...yes. But...I have my doubts. You know about my previous boyfriend" I admitted.

Jackie placed her hand on my knee. "Babe, you know he was a jerk. Shane wasn't worth your time. He pushed you further and further to the ground and you got yourself in a right mess. You didn't deserve the crap he gave you. Nevertheless, not all guys are like that. Do you really think Dan would be like him?"

I thought about it. My ex boyfriend (Shane) always put me down. He constantly made spiteful comments to me one after another until I couldn't take it anymore. It took a lot for me to break up with him, and it hurt for many months, but it turned out to be the best decision I ever made. Finally I had freedom from his harsh comments. He didn't get the chance to ruin my self esteem anymore.

"No, Dan is not anything like him" I stated. "I'm just...nervous. What about if it doesn't end well? What about if he just thinks I'm just another fan girl?"

"You'll never know unless you try Skye. If you don't give this a shot you'll lead your life thinking what if and that isn't a good way to go. Make the most of it. Let your heart lead the way".

This was the best advice I had heard in ages. Jackie made me feel so much more assured about the situation. I knew I wanted Dan.

"So what happens next?" I asked Jackie desperately. I wish she just made my life decisions for me. My life would be so much easier!

"You let Dan take you out on dates. You get to know him more and you let your barriers down. You let him in. And when you do- introduce me to Phil!" Jackie joked and I threw the sofa cushion at her playfully. I loved my best friend.

The rest of my day consisted of cleaning and sorting out my house. It had been slightly neglected since my stays at the Phil and Dan residence so it needed a bit of attention. When I finally managed to get to bed that night I was entirely exhausted by the whole ordeal.

Before I could fall in to the land of sleep I received a text. I groaned and picked up my phone; wondering who could be messaging me so late.

"HEY. HOW R U? –DAN"

I text back with a new found energy; I was keen to talk to him actually.

"GD THANKS. U? –SKYE"

"AWESOME. GREAT NOW I'M TALKING TO YOU -DAN"

"OOH AREN'T YOU A LADIES MAN! –SKYE"

"U KNOW IT BABE. WANT TO DO SOMETHING TOMORROW? JUST YOU AND ME. –DAN"

"WHAT, LIKE A DATE? –SKYE"

"EXACTLY LIKE A DATE. I WAS THINKING THE ZOO? –DAN"

"BRILLIANT! I LOVE BETTER HOPE THERE ARE LLAMAS THERES! SHALL I MEET YOU AT YOUR HOUSE? –SKYE"

"SURE. CAN'T GET ENOUGH OF LLAMAS! MEET AT 11AM. –DAN"

"GOODNIGHT, DAN. X –SKYE"

"SWEET DREAMS X. –DAN"

I switched my phone off this time round and flopped back down on my bed and sighed in happiness.

Tomorrow seemed like the start of a new beginning.
