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!

21. Jacqueline

After my talk with Phil it made me realise how much I missed Jackie. Phil did mean a lot to me but so did she. Me and Jackie had been close pretty much our whole lives- it would be a shame to mess it up now. Since our argument nor I or Jackie had made any contact with one another...but today I was going to alter this. I grabbed my phone and began texting.

"HEY JACK. WE NEED 2 TALK. I DON'T WANT OUR FRIENDSHIP TO BE RUINED. I VALUE IT TOO MUCH. I NEED TO EXPLAIN. 3PM TODAY AT STARBUCKS? Skye x"

I pressed the send button and sighed. I hoped Jackie would decide to reply instead of deleting the message and ignoring it. I didn't want to part on bad terms with her and be that way for the rest of eternity.

It was already 2:00 in the afternoon before Jackie eventually replied to me. During that time I spent it sitting anxiously beside Dan on the sofa whilst he edited his video twirling my phone round and round in my hands. I had already explained to Dan the situation and agreed I was doing the right thing. "One time we should all hang out" he suggested "then she can get to know me and Phil and see we aren't bad guys taking you away!" I decided this was a brilliant idea and vowed I would mention it to Jackie if she did decide to meet up with me. As soon as the ringtone for my text messages went off I reacted almost instantly and quickly unlocked my phone to view the message.

"I DON'T WANT TO RUIN OUR FRIENDSHIP EITHER. I LOVE U SKYE. SEE YOU AT 3 THEN. Jackie x"

I grinned to myself and told Dan the good news. Replying to Jackie I said:

"GREAT. SEE U SOON Skye x"

I left the house at 2:25pm with all my things that I took over Dan and Phil's place. I told Dan that I should really go back to my own house after mine and Jackie's meeting as I had chores to do and I couldn't just abandon my own home. Reluctantly and with puppy dog eyes Dan sadly agreed and made me promise I would text him as soon as I reached home.

At 2:50pm I approached the doors of Starbucks. As soon as I entered the cafe my nostrils were hit by the strong smell of coffee beans and tea. It was a smell I greeted eagerly. I ordered my favourite (a latte) with a slice of lemon cake to the kind waitress and they tasted wonderful. Taking a seat in the corner of the room I curled my hands lovingly around my mug of coffee only taking them off briefly to eat a piece of my cake.

"Room for one more?" said a voice behind me. I knew who that voice belonged to the moment I heard it. "Jackie!" I squealed and turned around to confirm my suspicions. Jackie grinned back at me and I took this as a confirmation to get up and hug her. Luckily for me Jackie hugged me back just like old times as opposed to pushing me back in annoyance.

Jackie had already ordered a mug of hot chocolate and was soon sat opposite me on our table. Before I got a chance to explain Jackie spoke up. "Listen Skye I'm so sorry for treating you like that. I was wrong to do so and I hope you will forgive me. I was in a bad mood and I guess I took it out on you". I smiled back at Jackie and took a sip of my latte. "I'm sorry too Jackie for not paying enough attention to you. I was so caught up in my own problems I didn't think to care about how I was treating people. We good now?" Jackie grinned at me and put her hand on mine. "Yeah we're good!" She giggled. "So what was it you needed to tell me?"

I retracted my hand away from hers and placed them around my latte once more. I took a deep breath and exhaled slowly. "The reason I never got the chance to talk to you and wasn't in a very good mood was because...I...I...I was raped". There. It was out in the open. Jackie looked at me in horror. "What?! Are you serious?! Christ Skye, I don't know what to say!"

I carried on my story. "I was out on a date with Dan to the zoo and we stopped off at the pub before we went our separate ways for the night. I went outside for a quick breather as I was getting a migraine and stupidly enough I went down the alleyway for some peace and quiet. A drunken old man followed me there and...You can guess the rest. I don't need to go in to details. But luckily for me he didn't get to go all the way as Dan found me and saved me"

I could see tears forming in Jackie's eyes. "That must have been awful Skye. The worst things happen to the best people. Did you go to the Police?" I shook my head "I don't want to relive it all, go to court and face the situation. I just want to forget it all". Jackie just looked at me understandably yet sympathetically. I decided to change the subject.

"Anyway; it's water under the bridge now. How's life treating you Jack?" Jackie wiped her tears and didn't challenge the change of subject. She knew me too well to protest or drag it out further. "Nothing has really happened. Same old single boring life".

I chugged down the rest of my latte and placed the empty mug on the side of the table. I ate the last piece of my sublime and scrumptious lemon cake whilst Jackie took a sip of her drink. "I thought you liked the single life?"

"I did" replied Jackie "but now I feel more alone than ever. I wish I had someone to share my life with. You're so lucky to have a boyfriend now Skye. He seems like he loves you and would do absolutely anything for you too".

Suddenly an idea struck inside my head. "You know, Phil was actually saying those exact words to me earlier. Oh my god...we should go on a double date! Phil is a kind and great guy I promise! Me and Dan were already talking about the four of us hanging out- it would be perfect!"

Jackie swallowed the last drops of her hot chocolate whilst she contemplated my promotion. She nodded to herself. "Well, I've always thought he was good looking..."

"Perfect!" I exclaimed "we can all go to the cinema or something tomorrow. You up for it?" A gradual smile formed on Jackie's lips. "Can we see Ted?" "Certainly!" I replied.

"Anyway" I said standing up. "I have to go home now to do some chores. Boring, I know. But I will text you later once I've discussed it with the boys and I'll let you know the details!" Jackie stood up too and pulled me for a friendly hug. "I've missed you Skye" she stated. "I missed you too Jack" I replied.

And on that note we went our own directions to our own homes.

The rest of the day was dull and nothing exciting happened. I spent my time washing my clothes, ironing, cleaning all the rooms and mowing the lawn. I had the music on my iPod blasting the whole time (Nicotine and Alcohol Saved My Life by Deaf Havana was my favourite one to sing along to) but it only made the boring tasks slightly more fun.

At 10pm I was exhausted and was ready for bed. I climbed in to bed keenly and grabbed my phone to call Dan. I had to tell him about the arrangements.

"Hey Dan" I began.

"Hello my love. How did it go with Jackie? Did you tell her the truth?" he replied.

"It went fine. Better than fine actually! Yes I did tell her everything. But we are close again now and that's the main point. How was your day?"

"Boring. I miss you already! Come baaaaack"

"Haha. I miss you too Dan. But I have more to tell you!"

"Go on. I'm listening"

"Well. Before I went to see Jackie I found Phil crying in his room. He was upset because he was jealous of our relationship and wished he had a girl of his own"

"What? Why didn't he tell me? He usually tells me everything. I'll talk to him later"

"It's okay Dan; I sorted him out. But I have a plan! When I was chatting with Jackie she mentioned how she was also bored of the single life and wanted to be in a relationship"

"Oh" Dan responded cottoning on. "I see where you are going with this"

"I figured we could get Phil and Jackie to go on a date. But we also said how we wanted all of us to meet up anyway- so how about a double date at the cinema?!"

"Perfect; I'll tell Phil. When are we planning this double date?"

"Tomorrow. Jackie wants to see the new film Ted by that Seth McFarlane guy and I've already looked up the cinema times. So 1:30pm tomorrow?"

"Brilliant. We'll meet you there! I hope the plan succeeds!"

"Great. I'm so tired Dan I'm afraid I am going to have to go. I love you!"

"Sweet dreams baby. I love you too"

Everything looked like it was going to go well. I hastily messaged Jackie the details before I closed my eyes to be greeted by much needed sleep.

For once in a long while absolutely EVERYTHING seemed to be going my way!
