The Picnic by Samj

March 30, 2017

“The Picnic” – Danny and Michelle are both college students at Springfield University at a college party. They meet over a water balloon contest and Danny’s time at the picnic Pilar drug him to is definitely looking up.

“The next event will be the water balloon toss,” came the cheerful voice over the public announcing system.

“It’s about time!” Michelle muttered under her breath, wiping a sweaty curl off her forehead. “It must be 100 degrees out today.”

Michelle made her way through the confused mass of toddlers and parents playing tag until she found her best friend, Bill Lewis. “Come on, Bill, water balloons,” she practically sang.

Bill looked up from the barbecue grill and gave Michelle an apologetic smile. “Sorry, can’t I have to man the grill.”

“Bill,” she whined, “you promised!”

“Burgers, Michelle, burgers.”

Michelle put out her bottom lip in a pout that Bill knew all too well, but he remained firm. “I really don’t think you’ll have any trouble finding someone else to be your partner Michelle, especially in that outfit.”

“What’s wrong with my outfit?” she challenged, looking down at her simple pink tank top and khaki shorts.

“Absolutely nothing,” he replied, giving her an appreciative once-over.

“Hey, knock it off,” she giggled, “this isn’t an episode of Dawson’s Creek.

Before Bill could respond, several fellow SU students walked past and drowned out their conversation. Above the din of multiple voices they heard one rather obnoxious speaker bragging loudly, “Give it up man, Peanut and I are experts at tossing water balloons. We’ve already got this thing in the bag.”

Michelle gave Bill a puzzled glance and he shook his head, indicating that he didn’t recognize the speaker either.

“Twenty bucks,” the stranger challenged.

“You want to put twenty bucks on a water balloon toss?” Jesse Blue, Bill’s roommate, asked incredulously. “Have you completely lost your mind?”

“Hey, I just believe in putting my money where my mouth is.” The stranger grinned broadly. “You in or out?”

“In,” Jesse responded succinctly. “Bill, let’s go man,” he called, “we’ve got some business to take care of.”

With a shrug of his shoulders Bill handed the spatula to a fellow frat brother and followed Jesse to the water balloon field.

“Traitor!” Michelle yelled after him.

The stranger grinned in amusement at Michelle, who promptly stuck her tongue out at him. For a moment their eyes locked, and Michelle chided herself for the butterflies suddenly loose in her stomach.

Breaking eye contact, he peeled his tee shirt off and handed it to a girl Michelle recognized from her art history class. What was her name? Pilar, Pilar Santos. Then he turned back to Michelle expectantly.

Peeling her eyes from his well-developed chest she asked sarcastically, “Is that supposed to impress me?”

His voice came out as a low, seductive rumble. “Doesn’t it?”

Refusing to be baited she settled for, “Do you always answer questions with questions?”

He raised an eyebrow at her. “Do you?”

“No,” she answered simply, “sometimes I just walk away.”

A few minutes later everyone was positioned for the water balloon toss. Michelle had conned Drew Jacobs, Jesse’s girlfriend, into being her partner. Drew kept whining that she didn’t want to get wet.

“Well then,” Michelle explained, “you’d better catch the balloon.”

Michelle was so busy dealing with Drew that she didn’t even realize she was standing right next to the obnoxious stranger until she heard him taunt Jesse one more time. “I’m telling you, Blue, with that guy as your partner,” he nodded towards Bill, “you might as well hand me the twenty now.”

Michelle set her jaw and tried to concentrate on the game. No one mocked her friends this way. No one.

A short time later there were only four couples remaining on the playing field Michelle and Drew, Jesse and Bill, Pilar and her partner, and some teenagers that no one really noticed. The crowd of onlookers concentrated only on Jesse and the stranger.

Michelle was actually quite impressed with Drew’s ability, although she could’ve done without the constant monologue about how a broken water balloon would mess up Drew’s hair and makeup.

On the next throw Drew misjudged the distance, and the balloon broke in Michelle’s hand, splashing her with water. “Woo hoo,” Michelle exclaimed happily, “that’s the first relief from this heat I’ve had all day.”

Having safely caught his own balloon, Pilar’s partner looked over at Michelle briefly, a smile playing at the corners of his mouth as he looked at her damp clothing. Without saying a word Michelle and Drew left the field to watch the game from the sidelines. The two teens soon followed, and only the participants in the bet remained in the game.

The tension was almost as thick as the humidity. Finally Jesse threw his balloon just short of the distance and it splashed to the ground in front of Bill.

“YES!!!!!” the stranger yelled. “Victory is ours!” He practically ran over to Pilar, then lifted her in his arms and swung her around, chanting, “we’re number one, we’re number one.” She managed to convince him to release her, at which point she went scrambling for the anonymity of the crowd, embarrassed by the attention she was receiving.

Meanwhile the stranger was so busy extolling his own virtues to the crowd that he didn’t even see it coming five or six frat brothers dumped a large tub of water directly over his head, soaking him completely and causing him to fall onto his backside on the slippery grass.

While laughing uncontrollably at the sight, Michelle grabbed a towel from a nearby table and walked over to the now dripping water balloon champ.

Looking up at her from his undignified position, he bit out, “Glad you find this so amusing.”

“You…” Michelle began, unable to catch her breath enough to speak. Watching him push his sopping wet curls off his forehead, she managed to continue, “You look like a little wet puppy!” With that she broke into another fit of giggles.

She offered him the towel, which he snatched from her hand…too forcefully, in fact, causing her to lose her footing on the wet grass and tumble toward the ground. His reflexes taking over, the stranger managed to pull her into his lap so that at least she didn’t land on the muddy ground.

Before she had a chance to react, he shook his head wildly back and forth, spraying her with water droplets. “Hey,” she cried out, shielding her face with her hands.

By this time the anger had drained from his face and he was laughing as well. “I just wanted you to have the full puppy effect,” he explained.

“Gee, thanks,” she deadpanned. “I don’t suppose you’re willing to share a corner of that towel with me?”

“Hmm, you might be able to persuade me…” he offered. For a moment Michelle was sure he was going to kiss her, but instead he pulled back slightly and used the towel to gently pat dry her face. “By the way, I’m Danny Santos.”

Michelle flashed him a brilliant smile, then put her hand on his shoulder to keep her balance as she stood. “Michelle, Michelle Bauer.”

Afraid that she was about to walk away he gently grabbed her wrist and stood carefully. “Hey, I don’t suppose we could start off with a clean slate here? I know I deserved this,” he swept his arm in a circle indicating the wet grass, “but honestly I’m not usually such an obnoxious jerk.” He gave her a seductive grin. “I’m usually much, much smoother.”

“Oh really?” she challenged, raising an eyebrow at him.

“Yeah, it’s just that my kid sister dragged me to this thing and I wasn’t having a very good time.” He paused and took her hand lightly in his. “Until now.”

Her smile grew wider. “Well that’s what we like to hear.” She started to walk towards the lake. “Since you’re all muddy, and we’re both already wet, what do you say we take a swim?”

“Lead the way,” he answered, which prompted her to let go of his hand and start sprinting down the hill. Danny shook his head good-humoredly and ran after her.

Love Led Us Here Part 2 by JenJ

Republisher’s Note: For some reason someone wrote what would have happened if things had gone worst.

Love Led Us Here Part 2 by JenJ

“Dead?” Michelle said uncomprehending, “What are you talking about?”

“Sweetie, he was shot and…”

“Yes I know he was shot but you took him to get help,” Michelle protested.

“He got hit again while we were making a run for it,” Rick said helplessly. “He never had a chance.”

“NO!” screamed Michelle, who would have collapsed if Harley hadn’t caught her. “No, he can’t be dead. Please tell me he’s not…”

“Michelle…”Tony started to say.

“Shut up!” she yelled at him. “This is your fault! If you had just warned us earlier then maybe we would have had some kind of chance!” Tony didn’t have anything to say. He knew that he was to blame.

“Rick, what happened?” Harley asked, helping Michelle to sit down.

Rick sat down, and said, “It all happened so fast. Danny had been shot but it wasn’t too bad. We decided to go to the Lighthouse so that I could take care of him. Then when we got there we saw that we weren’t alone. These other guys had gotten there first.”

“Who were they?” Frank asked.

“I don’t know. I’ve never seen them before,” Tony said.

“They just ambushed us,” Rick said. “Danny was able to run so Tony took off first to cover us, then I made a run for it with Danny following. They just started shooting at us and…”

“Did you fire back?” Frank asked.

Tony nodded, “I fired and Danny had a gun too. I heard some shots behind me so I think he got off a few shots before….”

“Before? What happened to Danny?” Michelle asked, tears streaming down her face.

“We just kept running and Michelle, I thought he was right behind me but when we got inside he wasn’t there. So we looked outside and he was laying on the ground. I tried to get to him but they were still shooting.”

“So you didn’t see him? Then how do you know for sure that he’s….?” Michelle asked, desperate for any kind of chance that Danny had made it.

“The hitmen stopped shooting and they walked over and looked at Danny. I saw them check to see if he was still alive and from what I saw they were satisfied with what they saw. Then they saw us and started shooting so we had to duck for cover and by the time that they had stopped and we were able to look they were gone and they had taken Danny’s body with them.” Rick said grimly.

That was all it took. With those words Michelle fell apart, “You left him? You left him there to die and you let them take his body away?” She accused. “How could you do that? He’d never have let that happen to either of you? Why did you let that happen to him?”

“Michelle, there was nothing that we could have done. We tried to follow them to see where they were taking him but we lost them.” Rick said. “I swear that we did try.”

“Well trying wasn’t good enough,” Michelle said tearfully. “It wasn’t good enough and now I have to tell my son that his father’s never coming back.” As if on cue the sound of Robbie’s cries could be heard through the monitor. “Excuse me,” She said, getting up and running out of the kitchen.

After Michelle had left Harley turned back to Rick and Tony, “Is there anything you’ve left out? Anything at all? We want to catch these guys.”

“No,” Rick said, tiredly. “I’ve said everything that I can think of. ”

Harley nodded, “Well we’ll leave you alone. We’ve got a car stationed out front in case anyone tries to come back.”

“They won’t,” Tony said dully. “The hit was only for Danny. Michelle and the baby aren’t in any danger. I made sure of that.”

“I bet that’s just what Michelle wants to hear right now,” Rick said. “That you made a deal that she and her son would get to live while her husband gets killed.”

“I never wanted any of this,” Tony protested. “I didn’t want Danny to die. That’s why I tried to warn him.”

“Well I think to Michelle it’s too little too late,” Rick said.

“We’ll be back tomorrow,” Frank said, turning to leave. There wasn’t anything else they could do tonight and maybe tomorrow they’d be able to find the shooters and where they had left Danny’s body.

Upstairs Michelle picked up a crying Robbie and held him, “SHHH baby, it’s okay. It’s just going to be okay.” She looked down at him and slowly ran her finger over his face, tracing his features that looked so much like Danny’s. “It’s just us now. Daddy’s gone, he’s not coming home again. You’ll never see his face or hear his voice. The only thing you’ll have is what I tell you.” after saying this Michelle lay down with Robbie in her arms and began to sob for everything she had lost.

Republisher’s Note: A sadder take on the attack on the Bauer House.

Love Led Us Here Part 1 by JenJ

Michelle paced the kitchen with Robbie in her arms. He had been asleep for about an hour but she still hadn’t laid him down. She didn’t want to have him out of her arms for one second.

It had been hours since the shooting. Hours since Tony had shown up to warn them, Maria’s appeal to Danny, the shooting and then Rick and Tony helping a wounded Danny out the front door and leaving her behind. They had promised her that they would call her as soon as they were safe but so far she hadn’t heard a word from them and she was getting more and more worried. She glanced over at Frank, Harley and David. The ambulance had taken the body of one of the assassins away and most of the police were gone but those three had stayed to watch her.

“Michelle, why don’t you take the baby upstairs and lay down,” Harley suggested. “He’s asleep and I’m sure that you’re tired too.”

“No, I couldn’t sleep anyway,” Michelle said, rocking the baby.

“Well, the baby’s asleep so why don’t you go upstairs and put him down. We’ll let you know if we hear anything.”

“I’d rather keep him with me right now,” Michelle said. She didn’t want to leave Robbie alone upstairs in case an assassin came back or if Maria sent a kidnapper to take him.

“There’s no danger,” Frank assured her. “There are police surrounding the house. No one’s going to try and break in.”

Michelle hesitated, still not wanting to let her son out of her sight. Harley noticed this and said, “How about I bring his bassinet down here and he can sleep here?”

Michelle nodded, “That sounds better.”

“Michelle, can you think of any places that Danny might have gone to?” David asked. “Any safe houses, or secret places he has?”

“No,” Michelle said, shaking her head. “He doesn’t have any kind of place like that.”

“Are you sure or are you just protecting him?”

Michelle turned away from him and laid Robbie down in the bassinet that Harley had brought in. She spent a long time arranging his blankets before she turned back to David, “I’m sure,” She said coldly. “Danny doesn’t have any safe houses or secret places that he could hide and I have told you everything that I know.”

“Look, Michelle, you’re not helping anyone by lying to us. Now the best way to help us find Danny and the others is to tell us where you think they are.”

“I’ve told you,” Michelle snapped. “I don’t know where Rick and Tony took Danny. They just said to stay down and they took him out and drove away.”

David started to speak but Harley pulled him aside, “Look why don’t you go down to the station? Frank and I will keep an eye on things here.” He started to protest but Harley interrupted him, “You’re only upsetting her and you’re not going to get anything out of her.”

“I don’t think she’s telling the truth.”

“Well even if she isn’t then Frank and I are going to get more her than you are. So why don’t you just go back to the station, see if they’ve heard anything.”

“Okay,” David grudgingly agreed. “I’m going to swing by Laurel Falls though. Danny’s hidden there before. He might go back there.” Then he turned and left.

Michelle stared out the window, wondering where Rick and Tony had taken Danny. She hadn’t been able to see how badly he had been shot before they had left so she didn’t know what kind of shape he was in right now.

“Michelle?” Frank asked, “Is there anything we can do? We’re trying help. Maybe if you tell where you think they went then I could go and get them.”

Michelle shook her head, “No, I don’t know where they went. Rick just said that they were going somewhere safe and they would call me as soon as they could.”

“I know but where do you think Rick would take Danny? You said that Danny was shot, now where would Rick take Danny to hide and treat him?”

“I don’t know,” Michelle insisted. “Please, I’m telling you all that I know.”

“Okay,” Harley said. “We believe you.”

Michelle sighed with relief. She honestly didn’t know where they were and she was starting to get even more worried. She hadn’t heard anything from them yet and she knew in this wasn’t a case where no news was good news. The longer she went without hearing from Danny the more worried she was about him.

Suddenly she heard a noise coming from the driveway, “Get down,” Frank said, shutting off the lights. Michelle grabbed Robbie and ducked behind the island with Frank and Harley, who had drawn their guns. Then the door opened and two figures slowly walked through the door. It was Rick and Tony. Frank, Harley and Michelle stood up. Michelle laid the baby back in his bassinet and ran over to Rick and Tony and said, “Where’s Danny? What happened?”

Rick just looked at her. He looked pale and shaken but he didn’t say anything. Michelle turned to Tony. He was pale too and his eyes had taken on a haunted look, “Please, what happened to him? Where is he?”

“Michelle, honey, sit down,” Rick said, putting his arm around her.

“NO,” Michelle said, shaking his arm off. “I don’t want to sit down now tell me where’s my husband.”

Rick turned to Harley and said, “Take the baby upstairs.”

“No,” Michelle said. “No one’s going anywhere until I know where Danny is.”

“Michelle, he’ll be safe up there. I promise,” Frank said. He picked up Robbie and took him upstairs.

“Where’s Danny,” Michelle insisted. “What happened to him.”

“We did everything we could…” Rick started to say.

“So where is he?”

“He’s gone, honey,” Rick said gently. “We did everything we could but it wasn’t enough.”

“Gone? What are you talking about?”

“He’s dead, Michelle,” Rick said gently.

To make it easier to direct people to this story I wanted to put all the chapter links in a single post, in other words do a link roundup. This story is in the nonmob fanfic category. This is a fic that I rescued with help from readers (thanks!) taking chapters from various sources and have republished.

Danny and Michelle at Mall

“Destiny” (1 of 2 with this name) – Michelle and Danny are longtime high school rivals who break into the school to settle an argument about which of them is ahead in the race for Valedictorian. They are forced to lay down on top of each other to try to avoid being caught and as they lay there with their bodies entwined something changes for both of them. They are caught anyway and sentenced to community service together. Is there only competition between them or is there something more? My favorite thing is that Danny convinces Bill Lewis to “borrow” her car without permission so that she has to accept his ride home. (Chapter 1) (Chapter 2) (Chapter 3) (Chapter 4) (Chapter 5) (Chapter 6)

And sadly that’s it. Chapter 6 is the last of what we have just when Manny leave for their date. I’d love it if anybody has more.

Destiny by Hannah Cho Chapter 6

March 21, 2017

Author’s Note: Hey Everyone, I know it’s been a million years since I last posted but real life and traveling out of the country has not spared me any time to write. Time away from home was good for me, it allowed me to gain perspective on the things occuring in the US and in my life. Europe has been wonderful and if anyone ever wants to take a vacation, I highly suggest traveling to the countries I visited which are France, Italy, and Spain. I was going to post a long chapter but I decided to split it up and revise it a bit more. So here’s chapter 6, hope you all enjoy it and as always your comments are MUCH appreciated! Take care and happy reading! -Hannah

Destiny by Hannah Cho Chapter 6

Michelle Bauer found herself constantly thinking about Danny Santos. Whether she was trying to solve a quantum physics equation or read Shakespeare, her thoughts always drifted towards Danny. Everyday he’d leave a note in her locker asking her out on a date, and Michelle would always decline. Despite turning down his offers, Michelle grew increasingly more attracted and fond of Danny. For the first time, he was being so sincere and kind to her. Everyday, he’d wait for her by her parking spot, walk her to class, carry her books, and of course there was his gorgeous smile. Danny’s smile was one of the many things that Michelle found irresistible. She had to fight with every fiber in her body not to succumb to his smile and become a blubbering moron.

One Friday afternoon Michelle stayed afterschool to work on the school newspaper. As Editor-in-Chief, it was always common for her to stay after when deadline came up. She shivered slightly at the March breeze as she walked out of the building. Her pink cardigan set with her jeans were adequate enough to keep her warm during the day but it was nearly close to 8pm and the weather was getting cold. As Michelle walked towards the parking lot, she could not see her car.

“Where’s my car?!” she thought out loud.

“Need a ride?” said a voice from behind.

“Danny!” she exclaimed alarmed. “Oh my gosh, did you see where my car went?” Michelle asked.

“I believe Bill took your car,” Danny said calmly.

“Bill? Why on earth would he take my car?” Michelle asked dumbfounded.

“Why so I can take you out of course,” he responded with a smile. He looked amazing standing against his car in his traditional leather jacket. “I’ve been asking you out for weeks and I’ve decided that I wont take no for an answer anymore.”

Michelle stared at Danny incredulously. “Well I’m so glad you decided that! But that doesn’t give you the right to steal my car and to get my best friend to do it no less! You’ve got some nerve Daniel Santos! To think that I would just go on a date with you when you commit a felony and steal my car I can’t believe —–”

Suddenly Danny grabbed Michelle and pulled her to him fiercely as his mouth came crashing down on her. She tried to fight it by pushing him away, but Danny’s kisses were extraordinary. Michelle soon forgot reality and drifted into the kiss. But rationale soon found its way back to her and she gave Danny a hard shove.

“You’re incredible!” she exclaimed.

“Thank you, I’ve been told that quite a few times,” Danny said with a smile.

“It wasn’t a compliment. I just mean I can’t believe you’re cocky enough to think that you can just shut me up with a kiss and make me forget everything,” Michelle said.

“Well I didn’t hear you complaining and I certainly know you enjoyed that kiss,” Danny said with a wink. “Now there’s plenty more where that came from, so let’s get a move on, were gonna be late for dinner,” he said as he grabbed her hand.

“WHAT DO I HAVE TO DO TO MAKE IT CLEAR THAT I DON’T LIKE YOU!” Michelle yelled as she yanked her hand away from him.

“Michelle, I don’t know why you delude yourself and you just don’t face reality. You want me just as much as I want you. Michelle, I can see it in your eyes every time you look at me. It’s even apparent when you’re yelling and screaming at me. That spark in your eye never goes away when were together. So why not just do us both a favor and just give me a chance!” Danny said exasperated. Michelle knew it was hopeless to argue with him, so she sighed and opened the car door.

“So you wanna tell me where were going?” she said softly.

“I guarantee I’m gonna give you a night to remember and believe me, you won’t regret it,” Danny said as he pulled out of the Springfield High parking lot.

Destiny by Hannah Cho Chapter 5

March 20, 2017

Republisher’s Note: I’m not entirely sure they’ve kept the character of Carmen the same, but it’s a nice twist.

AUTHOR’S NOTE: Hey Everyone, Well I know it’s been like forever and a day, since I last posted “Destiny.” But here’s the fifth installment, I may be able to post chapter 6 sometime this weekend (hopefully.) Thanks to all of you that have been asking about my fanfic. It really means so much that you all care and read my story. Please feel free to post your comments and suggestions. For any new readers, feel free to email me for the previous chapters. Thanks again, happy reading! -Hannah

Just to recap: Michelle and Danny are rivals and intense competitors. They both attend Springfield High and are competing for valed victorian. They both broke into the school to find out who was winning and got caught and then sentenced to community service. Michelle and Danny are developing deep feelings for each other, and so far on more than one occassion have started to give in to their passion. Danny wants to pursue a relationship, but Michelle is very hesistant and does not want to. Last chapter, they were sent to a supply room to gather materials for the community center project, however they gave into their feelings but only to be interrupted by an angry voice…….

And now…Chapter 5

Destiny by Hannah Cho Chapter 5

“Oh my gosh, Mrs. Santos!” Michelle exclaimed.

“Daniel, que es esto?” Carmen Santos angrily yelled.

“Mama!” Danny said in alarm. “Um, we were just getting some supplies for the sets.”

“Well it sure doesn’t look like you were looking for supplies!” Carmen said.

“What are you doing here anyways?” Danny asked while tucking his shirt back in and grabbing the supplies for the set.

“I came by to see how things were going. I wanted to see how you and Michelle were getting along, but I can see from this situation that you two are more than getting along,” Carmen said.

“Mrs. Santos, I can explain…” stammered Michelle. “This isn’t what it looks like!”

“Well I sure hope so, because by the looks of things, it seems like you two were having a fledgling make out session in a storage closet!” Carmen berated. “Really Michelle, I thought the Bauers were upstanding people. I never thought in a million years theyd raise a promiscuous daughter. I can’t believe you’d manipulate and seduce my son into doing such vulgar acts.”

“Mama, that’s enough! I won’t have you talk to Michelle like that And for the record, I initiated this, not Michelle.” Danny defended as he placed a protective arm around her.

Michelle stared at Danny in amazement. She could not believe that he was defending her, especially to an intimidating woman like Carmen Santos. Michelle could remember back to how much effort and time it took Bill to finally gain Carmen’s approval. Most of the girls at school talked about how the one reason they didn’t pursue Danny was because of his overbearing mother. And to think, he was defending her, his common rival for most of his life. Michelle’s thoughts were interrupted by a familiar voice.

“Oh Mrs. Santos, I see you found them,” Ms. Garrett said as she approached the trio. “Did you guys find the supplies?”

“Oh we found more than that,” Danny said with a wink towards Michelle.

“Um, let’s go get these supplies to the kids,” Michelle stammered as she walked towards the theater.

For the rest of the day, Michelle found it increasingly difficult to resist Danny. As she watched him closer, she found herself growing more and more drawn to him. He had all the characteristics she had ever wanted in a guy. Danny was compassionate, energetic, intelligent and not to mention gorgeous. There were many times in the afternoon that Michelle felt herself blushing thinking about his incredible body and looks. She kept trying to rationalize her feelings for him. It’s just a simple crush that’ll pass, she tried to reassure herself. But inside, Michelle knew it was more than a crush. Something deep within, told her that there was a special connection between her and Danny. But Michelle was afraid. Though she did not want to admit it, Michelle was scared of getting hurt. Guys had always seemed to use her. Whether it was her social status, popularity, intelligence, or looks, guys were always after Michelle. She had fallen hard for some of these guys, particularly Ryan and Jesse. When they had broken up with her, it had devastated her. After her nasty break up with Ryan, she had vowed that she would never let another guy break her heart. And now, she found herself feeling those same familiar feelings, only this time they were so much stronger and intense. Her heart was telling her to go for it, but her head was telling her to stop fooling herself. Michelle found herself confused. She knew she would never forgive herself if she didn’t give this relationship a chance, but on the other hand, she didn’t want to relive the pain of broken promises. Was Danny really worth risking her heart? Michelle knew the answer but her head kept telling her no.

“Hey are we done yet?” asked Ricky, one of the community centers kids.

“Yep, I think were done for today kiddo. Okay everyone, please put all the materials in the appropriate boxes and then you guy are free to go! Great job today!” Michelle said to the kids.

After all the kids had left, Danny and Michelle remained putting back all the supplies and costumes. When they were finally done, Michelle sprinted out of the center to her car. She couldn’t take one more minute with Danny, it was too much. She could feel her defenses weakening. As she turned the keys in her car to get in, she felt a hand on her shoulder. She slightly jumped in alarm and then eased when she saw the owner’s face.

“Danny, you scared me!” Michelle said

“Were you going to leave without saying goodbye to me?” Danny asked sweetly.

“Okay, I’m sorry, that was rude of me,” Michelle sighed. “Well, I guess this is good bye, I’ll see you later, Danny.” She turned to get in her car, but Danny grabbed her wrist and turned her towards him again.

“Wait, I didn’t get to say goodbye to you,” Danny said. Michelle opened her mouth to respond when it was suddenly silenced by a kiss. This time, Michelle didn’t even try to resist. She fell into the sweet kiss. It was so intense, yet so tender at the same time. Ironically, this time, Danny pulled back. “Goodbye Michelle, I had an amazing time and I think that you’re an incredible kisser,” Danny said as he walked away. Michelle stood in shock by her car, amazed once again, by the actions of Danny Santos.

Destiny- Chapter 4 by Hannah Cho

Michelle drove to the community center frazzled and confused. So many emotions were simultaneously running through her mind. She had this urging feeling inside of her wanting to start a relationship with Danny desperately. He was so incredibly handsome and breathtaking. Michelle felt shivers run up her spine as she thought back to Danny’s steamy kiss. She had her share of kisses from good-looking guys, but they all paled in comparison to the effect of Danny’s kiss.

Michelle, you have got to stop thinking about him! she fiercely told herself. Michelle reminded herself of Danny’s notorious relationships with the girls in Springfield. She was determined to not be just another girl. Still, she could not deny the incredible feelings she experienced when she was with Danny. Something felt so familiar and so right being with Danny. It was like her and Danny were meant to be together. Stop dreaming, Danny would never want to pursue a relationship with me. I’m just another trophy he wants to add onto his wall. Michelle shook her head as she pulled into the parking lot of the Springfield Community Center. She got out of the car and walked into the center. A middle aged woman dressed in jeans and a T-shirt, smiled and approached her.

“You must be Michelle,” the woman said as she shook Michelle’s hand. “My name is Jill Garrett and I’m the director of the children’s department of the Springfield Community Center. Principal Manning asked me personally to look after you and Danny. It’s quite a story I hear about how Principal Manning caught the two of you in the counselor’s office,” Ms. Garrett said with her eyebrow arched. Michelle sheepishly looked to the ground as she was reminded of that infamous night.

“Um well Ms. Garrett, what’s my first assignment?” asked Michelle hoping to change the subject off of Danny.

“Well the annual parents night is coming up pretty soon. One of the things we at the children’s department do is put on a play. This year we’ve decided on putting on Cinderella. I’ve decided to put you and Danny in charge of organizing it this year. The kids have already been assigned the parts. However, you and Danny need to put together the practices, the sets, costumes, props & any other aspect of the play,” said Ms. Garrett. Michelle nodded in understandment and she smiled. It actually sounded like fun putting together a play with the kids. Michelle had always loved working with children.

This isn’t as bad as I thought it would be, she thought to herself.

“Now I understand that you and Danny have some rivalry between you, but I’m advising you to put that aside. It’s going to be extremely difficult for you both if you don’t do so because you will be working many hours closely together,” Ms. Garrett advised. Michelle cringed as she thought about how much time she’d have to spend with Danny. How on earth am I going to keep my feelings intact working with him so much? she thought to herself. Ms. Garret gave Michelle a reassuringly smile. “Don’t worry, the kids are going to love you. I’m sure everything will turn out fine. Well why don’t you come with me and I’ll show you where all the kids are. Danny’s already in there getting acquainted with all the kids,” Ms. Garrett said as she led Michelle down the hall to the auditorium. “Well, here you go. I’ll be back later to check in,” she said as she left the auditorium.

Michelle smiled as she processed the sight in front of her. Danny was on his knees talking to a little girl who looked like she was about 5 years old. It was obvious that she had been crying because of her tear stained face. Michelle quietly walked behind him to listen to what he was saying.

“But it hurts!” cried the little girl with a pout.

“Aww. I’m sure its not too bad,” Danny said soothingly as he took her cut finger into his own hand. “I think you just got one nasty paper cut, Karen.”

“Make it stop hurting!” she pleaded.

“Well I’ve been known to be a master healer of paper cuts,” he said with a reassuring smile. He took Karen’s finger and put it up to his lips. He then gave it a sweet kiss as he gave the little girl a comforting hug. Michelle’s heart melted as she watched Danny interact with Karen.

“He would make such a great father,” she thought.

Karen’s sweet voice interrupted Michelles thoughts. “I’m sorry sweetheart, what did you say?” Michelle asked as she walked towards Danny and Karen.

“I said that you’re the real princess,” Karen replied.

“I’m afraid I don’t understand,” Michelle said with a puzzled expression.

“This mean kid Mikey told me that Cinderella and other fairy tale princesses don’t exist but then Danny said that Mikey was wrong because he knew a real life princess. He said that she had long beautiful curly blond hair like Rapunzel and had magical powers,” said Karen.

“What magical powers?” asked Michelle.

“Danny said that anytime the princess was near him, she could make him feel really happy because she filled his heart with magical feelings of happiness. He said that when she walked into a room, everybody felt happy because of her powers,” explained Karen. “When I saw you come into the room, I knew you were the princess.”

“How did you know that?” inquired Michelle.

“Because silly, all of a sudden Danny got really happy and my ouchie got all better. See look.” said Karen as she lifted her finger up to show Michelle.

Michelle looked over at Danny and smiled. His face seemed somewhat embarrassed about Karen telling his story about Michelle. “Well, I don’t know if I’m that princess, but I sure hope that I can help make your ouchie feel better. Come on why don’t we go get you a band-aid for that cut of yours,” Michelle said as she led Karen to the first-aid kit. As she started walking Danny and Michelle exchanged amorable glances.

She’s so beautiful and kind. Danny thought to himself as she watched her bandage up Karen’s finger.

“A penny for your thoughts,” said a voice from behind.

Danny turned around to see the owner of the voice. “Oh Ms. Garrett,” he said.

“What were you thinking about?” she asked. Ms. Garrett then noticed Danny’s looks towards and Michelle and smiled to herself. “Nevermind, looks like the subject of your daydreams is approaching,” she said as Michelle walked towards them.

“Hey Ms. Garrett, what’s going on?” asked Michelle.

“Well now that you both have been acquainted with assignment, why don’t you start building the sets for the play?” Ms. Garrett suggested.

“Okay, where do we start?” asked Michelle.

“Well first you need to go get the paints, boards and other supplies from the supply closet upstairs,” Ms. Garrett instructed.

“Well, I’ll go get them,” Michelle volunteered.

“I better help you,” Danny said.

“No thanks, I’ll be fine,” Michelle answered back.

“Come on Michelle, you know you can’t carry all of that stuff by yourself,” Danny argued.

“I’m perfectly capable. Danny. Just because I’m a girl doesnt mean I’m useless,” Michelle said getting angrier.

“Michelle, I didn’t say you were incapable. I just think that it would be a better idea if I go with you,” he said louder.

“Danny, I said….” Michelle started.

“Whoa whoa whoa! Don’t get carried away you two!” Ms. Garrett said. “Michelle, Danny is right. There is a lot of equipment to carry and one person can’t do it by themselves. So why don’t you two go to the supply closet and go get all the materials needed for the sets,” Ms. Garrett said as she handed Michelle the keys. “Oh be careful, that door is old and sometimes gets stuck.”

“Don’t worry, I’m sure well be fine,” Danny said as he shot Michelle a mischievous wink.

Michelle rolled her eyes as she walked down the hall. “Err….I can’t get the door open,” Michelle grunted as she pushed on the old door.

“Here let me try,” Danny offered as he gave the stuck door one big shove. The door swung open and Michelle walked in the supply room not saying a word to Danny.

“You’re quite welcome,” Danny said sarcastically as he walked into the supply room.

For a while they just gathered supplies in silence finally, Michelle broke the silence. “I’m sorry about picking a fight with you earlier; habit I guess,” Michelle said.

“It’s okay, Michelle, and uh well, I guess I’m sorry, too. I didn’t mean to offend you,” Danny said sheepishly. “I guess we’re so used to fighting that we don’t really know what it’s like to get along.”

“Look Danny, we’re going to be working together for the next 3 months. We might as well try to get along. I know I can be difficult sometimes….”

“Sometimes?” Danny said.

“Hey come on, I’m trying to make a peace offering here!” Michelle yelled back as she turned her back to him.

“Okay, okay, I’m sorry,” he said as he placed a hand on her shoulder. “I guess I’m still irked that you won’t try to pursue what’s going on between us.”

“Danny, there’s nothing between us! We’re rivals, peers, classmates, competitors, neighbors maybe now since were in this predicament, well possibly even end up as friends! But there is definitely nothing else besides that between us!” Michelle said as she threw her hands in the air. Michelle started a tirade on how rude and intolerable Danny was when she was interrupted by Danny’s mouth covering her mouth with a searing kiss.

“Danny, what are you doing?” Michelle said incredulously as she pushed him away. She drew her hand up to slap him, but Danny grabbed her arm and drew her body close to his. They were so close that they could feel each other’s hearts rapidly pounding.

“Exactly what you want me to be doing,” Danny said in a seductive whisper. “Admit it, Michelle. Ever since our kiss at Laurel Falls, you know you’ve fantasized about kissing me again.”

“Danny….” she started.

Danny placed his finger on her lips to stop her talking. “Don’t you realize its pointless to fight it?” he said in a low voice. He leaned towards her again to kiss her and this time Michelle could not resist. She grabbed his head and started running her fingers through his hair. The intensity began to soar as Danny and Michelle exchanged passionate kisses. Michelle gasped in alarm as his hands traveled up to her chest as Danny started to unbutton her shirt.

Stop Michelle! You can’t let this happen! a voice inside of her head yelled. “But it feels so good!” she hoarsely whispered as Danny trailed kisses up her neck.

“I know, baby,” Danny said as he continued to tantalize Michelle with his wondrous ways.

Suddenly the door swung open with a loud bang!

“And just what do you two think you’re doing?!” boomed an angry voice.

Destiny by Hannah Cho Chapter 3

Michelle Bauer walked in a haze through the halls of Springfield High School. It was Saturday morning and Michelle was there to meet Bill to go watch the state swim finals. Michelle was not one to get up early on the weekend to watch swim meets, but today’s meet was different, Danny Santos would be there. Ever since their night encounter at the counselor’s office, Michelle could not stop thinking about Danny. She could not get him out of her mind, his eyes, his body, his voice. Everything about Danny Santos, her sworn rival, was swarming around in Michelle’s intricate mind. A loud noise interrupted her daydreaming.


“Ahhh!” Michelle screamed. She turned around to see the source of the noise and smiled when she recognized it. “Bill! You scared me half to death!”

“That was the idea,” Bill said with a smile. He looked into Michelle’s face and realized that she looked very distant.

“Hey you all right, Chelle?”

“Hmm?” she asked.

“You’re like a million miles away. What’s preoccupying your mind?” Bill asked.

“Nothing. I don’t know what you’re talking about, Bill,” Michelle tried to cover. She knew that she would never hear the end of it if Bill knew she was hopelessly falling for Danny Santos.

“This wouldn’t have anything to do with Danny Santos would it?” he asked with a coy smile.

“No way, Bill! I can’t stand him! Why would I be thinking about Danny?” Michelle asked with false indignity.

“Whatever, Michelle. C’mon, it’s me Bill, your best friend you’re talking to. You know you can’t keep a secret from me! I saw the way you looked at him, it’s the same look you had when you had a crush on Ryan Stewart! You’re starting to like Danny Santos aren’t you?” questioned Bill.

“I do not have any romantic feelings for Danny Santos! And you are so wrong for bringing up Ryan, you know that was like centuries ago!” retorted Michelle.

“Michelle, it was last year, and you’re just mad that he didn’t like you back. He’s the only guy who hasn’t ever fallen under your spell and you just can’t handle that rejection,” said Bill.

Michelle turned her head and started walking towards the parking lot in the direction of the school pool. She couldn’t let Bill see her like this. She herself couldn’t understand why her feelings for Danny Santos were developing. And she really couldn’t understand the intensity of them.

“Come on Michelle, don’t do this!” said Bill as he ran to catch up with her. “Just admit that you like him. You and I both know that you haven’t ever been able to keep a secret from me. That’s why my mom didn’t even tell you about my surprise birthday party cuz she knew you couldn’t keep it from me! There’s only one reason why you would get up early on a Saturday morning and his name starts with a D and rhymes with fanny. Which by the way I saw you looking at his last night.”

Michelle playfully slapped Bill on his arm. “Okay I admit it!” Michelle said exasperatedly. “I may be starting to be developing teeny, tiny, microscopic feelings for Danny Santos.”

“Michelle, you had tiny feelings when you kissed me in seventh grade. You had teeny feelings for Jesse Blue when you asked him to homecoming freshman year. But you definitely don’t have those same teeny, tiny feelings for Danny. I don’t know why you’re being so immature about this, just admit your feelings!” chided Bill.

“Ugh fine!” groaned Michelle. “I admit it, I do like Danny Santos. I can’t get him out of my head! He’s everywhere. This morning I nearly choked when I thought I saw him in my cereal!” She glared back at an amused Bill. “And for the record, I was not starting at his butt!” She said as she grabbed his arm into the pool arena.

Bill and Michelle took their seats along the homeside of the pool. The announcer came on the speaker to announce Springfield High’s undefeated swim team.

“And now, introducing the undefeated Springfield Spartans!” The crowd rose to their feet and cheered as the team made its way into the arena. And leading the team is varsity captain and the nationally ranked #1 swimmer, Danny Santos!”

Instantly the ladies in the audience began to scream and yell for Danny. It was obvious that many girls of Springfield High harbored hopeless crushes for the infamous heart throb Danny Santos. Michelle was no exception. She started intently as Danny made his way into the arena. He looked like a Greek god with his perfectly tanned body. His muscles rippled as he strided in and of course he was flashing his million dollar smile. On top of all this, Danny was wearing nothing but a speedo.

“Damn he looks good,” she whispered to herself.

“What was that, Michelle?” Bill asked.

“Um I said wanna get some food?” she said as she tried to cover.

Bill and Michelle watched with enthusiasm as Danny led the swim team onto victory. Danny placed first overall for the state-championship. Afterwards Michelle and Bill headed towards Millennium for lunch.

“Hey honey! Hey Michelle!” said Pilar as she greeted them. “How was my brother in the swim meet?”

“Oh he was exquisite according to Michelle,” teased Bill as he imitated Michelles dazed look during the swim meet.

Michelle gave Bill a playful slap.

“Well I was talking about Danny’s swimming skills in this case, Michelle, not his famous handsome Santos looks,” laughed Pilar.

Michelle blushed as she thought about how her temperature had risen when she saw Danny at the swim meet.

“Ay caramba! Michelle, please tell me that you haven’t fallen for my big macho hermano!” said Pilar.

“Who said anything about falling for him?” said Michelle.

“Well let’s continue this conversation over some food! I’m starving!” exclaimed Bill. The trio sat down at a table to eat and Pilar and Bill of course teased Michelle about her crush on Danny. Just then Pilar eyed Danny walking into the door. She motioned for him to come over to the table.

“Um hey honey, why don’t you help me go pick out a song on the jukebox?” Pilar said to Bill.

“What jukebox?” Bill said with a puzzled look.

Pilar jabbed him on the side with her elbow and Bill got the hint. “Oh THAT jukebox.” He said as they got up from the table. “Michelle well be right back.”

Michelle didn’t even notice them getting up, she was too lost in her thoughts about Danny. She couldn’t get his face out of her mind, especially his hypnotizing eyes. Plus, it didn’t hurt that he had a gorgeous body. She thought back to their escapade on Friday night.

“Danny did look nice in black,” she thought outloud.

“So did you,” a voice said from behind. Michelle got out of her seat alarmed and turned around to see the owner of the voice.

“Danny, hi. Fancy running into you here,” Michelle said sheepishly. She stared into his eyes and could feel herself getting lost. It was like he was seeing right through her into her soul when he looked at her. “Well I guess I better go find Bill and Pilar,” she said as she started to leave.

“Wait don’t go,” he said as he grabbed her arm. “Would you like to take a walk with me?” he said as he held out his hand to her.

Again, she looked into Danny’s handsome face. How can I say no to him? she thought to herself. “Sure,” she said as she placed her hand into his as they left Millennium together.

“Pilar, I don’t know about this. I got a bad feeling,” Bill said as he watched his best friend leave with Danny Santos.

“Oh honey don’t worry, my brother’s got plenty of experience with girls,” she said.

“I know, that’s what I’m worried about,” Bill said with a worried look.

For a while Danny and Michelle walked in awkward silence. Finally, he broke it with a poignant question.
“Are you developing feelings for me Michelle?” he asked.

Michelle paused and stared at Danny with an incredulous look. “I mean I know I’m being really forward. It’s just that I’m starting to feel things for you that I haven’t felt for anyone else. I just wanted to know if you were feelings the same things too.”

“Um Danny, let’s keep on walking,” Michelle said, trying to avoid eye contact. They walked towards Laurel Falls, making small talk. Michelle sat down at a rock gathering daisies. Unbeknownst to her, Danny was staring at her adoringly. She looked like an angelic figure to him. Her soft, creamy skin and her long, golden curls drew Danny to Michelle like a force that could not be resisted. Danny felt a strange sensation pulling him towards Michelle. He tried to fight it, but realized that it was futal because he could not win over it.

“You know, Michelle, you never answered my question,” Danny said as he sat down next to her.

“What question?” Michelle said trying to play dumb. She could feel Danny’s body next to her and it was making her temperature instantly rise. She got up and turned away from him, scared that Danny might see the intense desire for him in her eyes.

“Are you starting to have feelings for me?” he asked her from behind. “Because I think that I’m starting to fall for you.”

“Danny….” Michelle started.

“Whenever I’m around you, I get these intense electric currents through my body that draws me towards you and I can’t resist them. They make my temperature rise and then I get this undeniable desire and longing to be with you. And there’s nothing I can do about it. There’s some kind of force thats drawing us together. Michelle, I know you can feel it,” he said as he approached her from behind. He placed his arms around her waist and Michelle gasped. She closed her eyes and could feel herself melting into his arms. “Tell me you don’t feel undeniable pleasure when I put my hands on you,” he said as he slowly started to give Michelle sensual kisses along her neck. Michelle knew that Danny was right. There was a powerful, unstoppable force that was pulling her towards Danny Santos. She thoroughly enjoyed Danny giving her kisses, but warning bells began to siren in her head.

“Wait stop,” she said breathlessly as she pulled away from him. “This isn’t right, Danny.”

“Oh but quite the opposite, my dear,” he said as he turned her towards him, making them only a few feet from each other. Danny then took a step forward, making them face to face and only inches apart. “This is anything but wrong.”

“Look Danny. No, I won’t deny it. I’m very attracted to you and I do have feelings but there’s a simple explanation for that.” She said as she stepped away from him.

“Well pray tell,” Danny said as he moved towards her.

“It’s just lust we have between us. I’m a girl, you’re a guy, and naturally we’ll just be drawn to each other. There’s nothing more than that,” Michelle said trying to convince herself of her words.

“You don’t sound too sure, Ms. Bauer,” Danny said as he continued to walk towards her. Michelle, you and I both know that it’s more than physical attraction. If it was, you and I would have hooked up long before our senior year.”

“‘Cmon don’t make more of this than it really is,” Michelle said nervously as she moved backwards away from him. “We’re rivals. We have been for our entire lives. I mean my mom even says that we were competing to see who would be born first. Whatever you’re feeling towards me isn’t real.”

“Oh but quite the contrary,” Danny said. “What I feel for you is 100% genuine. Don’t fight the feelings, Michelle, just give in.”

“Danny, you’re probably just feeling this way towards me because I’m the one girl that you can’t have. Let’s face it, you could have any girl in Springfield if you wanted to. You wouldn’t even have to pursue them, but I’m a different story. I’m the one girl that you’ve never been able to have. You’re a competitive guy always looking for challenges and in this case the challenge is me. You’re wanting to win a challenge has just morphed itself into this twisted feeling that you’re calling attraction,” Michelle said matter-of-factly. In fact, whatever attraction that I had towards you is gone.

“Well if that’s the case, then why are you trembling?” Danny said as he moved towards her.

Michelle opened her mouth to speak, but before she could, Danny in one swift move, covered her mouth with his, drawing her into a magical kiss. Michelle at first tried to resist but then soon succumbed into the power of Danny’s kiss. He placed his hands on her waist as she began to run her fingers through his dark, silky curls. Deeper and deeper, Michelle started to fall into this kiss. Suddenly, warning bells went off in her head and Michelle finally, but barely gained enough energy to back off.

“Tell me you didn’t enjoy that as much as I did. Tell me you didn’t feel the incredible connection between us. Go ahead, I dare you,” Danny said intensely as he moved towards her. He drew Michelle into his arms and placed his forehead against hers. You can’t deny science, Michelle, you and I definitely have some chemistry between us. You’ll regret it if you don’t pursue what’s forming between you and I.”

“Danny, it’s gonna take more than a sweet kiss and a couple of smooth sentences for me to pursue anything with you. I know you too well, Danny Santos. You’re only saying these things to get to me. You only want me because I’m the one thing you want but can’t have,” Michelle said as she walked away from him.

“Oh Michelle, you’re right about one thing. I do want you. But it’s unfortunate that you don’t realize one small, but important fact- I always get what I want,” Danny said to himself as he watched Michelle walk back to Millennium.

“Principal Manning!” gasped Michelle.

“Indeed I am, Ms. Bauer. The question at hand is what are you doing here on a Friday night after hours and why are Mr. Lewis & Santos with you?” inquired Mr. Manning.

“Um I can explain….you see…. um…. Bill here left something in the counselor’s office and so Danny and I just came here with him to look for it,” stammered Michelle. She poked a dumb-founded Bill on his side to coroberate her story.

“Is that so Ms. Bauer? Because to me, it looks like the three of you were breaking into the counselor’s office computers. You do know that’s a federal crime and the consequences for it are quite severe?” Mr. Manning said with a stern look.

“Yes sir, but you see we weren’t breaking into the computer per se, it was more like we were scanning for information,” Michelle said trying to cover her tracks. “Wouldn’t you agree, Danny?” she said through clenched teeth.

“Forget it, Michelle. Look Principal Manning, this was all my doing. Michelle and Bill had nothing to do with it, they just came in here to stop me,” said Danny.

“Why is he covering for me?” thought Michelle. Suddenly her respect for Danny rose to a new level. She had always held deference for him because of his many talents, but now it was like she was actually starting to like the guy. Michelle flashed back to lying on top of him behind the file cabinets a few short minutes ago. The intensity, steamy atmosphere and images of Danny’s hardcore body caused her to blush. These new amorous feelings startled Michelle. She was usually the girl that every guy wanted to have, but never could get. She guarded her heart with a stone wall that she only broke down the wall and allowed access into her heart for a very few select people like Bill, her life long best friend. And now, she was slowly starting to open her heart to her sworn rival. Of all the guys in Springfield High School, Michelle Bauer was actually starting to develop a crush on Danny Santos. She shook her thoughts away and realized the serious situation she was in. Michelle knew she couldn’t let Danny suffer punishment all by himself. It wasn’t fair and she wanted the satisfaction of knowing that if she indeed became valedictorian, it wasn’t because Danny got caught breaking into the counselor’s office.

“Mr. Santos, correct me if I’m wrong, you’re telling me that you alone committed this act of breaking and entering school property?” asked Mr. Manning.

“Yes sir, that is correct,” Danny said.

“No, he’s lying!” Michelle said as she came forward. “I’m just as guilty as Danny is Mr. Manning. Bill didn’t do anything wrong.”

“What are you doing, Michelle?” Danny whispered fiercely in her ear.

“The right thing,” she whispered back.

“Very well then. Mr. Lewis, I will let you off the hook this time. HOWEVER, consider this your one and only warning. If I ever catch you doing any more stupid and illegal acts, you will suffer the consequences,” he said.

“Thank you so much, sir!” said a grateful Bill.

“And as for the two of you,” said Mr. Manning as he looked in Danny and Michelle’s direction. “Since this is the first time either have you been caught breaking school regulations, I will not suspend or expel you. However, I will sentence you to 3 months of community service. The two of you will work together, side by side, everyday after school for 3 hours and every weekend for 5 hours. I understand that there is a rivalry between you two. Know that I really don’t care if you don’t like each other. You WILL work together because you WILL do this assignment and you WILL get along. I will be monitoring your progress and personally contacting the supervisors at the community center, which you will both volunteer at. If during this time should either of you commit any act that goes even the slightest bit against school rules, you will be suspended and not allowed to walk with your class at graduation. Both of you are skating on very thin ice and consider yourselves extremely lucky that I’m letting you get away with just community service. Do I make myself clear?”

Danny and Michelle nodded in astounded silence.

“I said, do I make myself clear?” Mr. Manning said more loudly.

“Yes, sir,” both of them said quietly.

“Well then, you should all be getting home now. Let this be a lesson to the three of you. Never try a stunt like this again, because you WILL get caught,” Mr. Manning said as he left the office.

“Well, Manning sure blew some steam there,” Bill said with a sigh.

“Yeah,” Danny said. “Well, I should be going now, the state swim finals are tomorrow morning.” He grabbed his car keys and started walking out the door.

“Hey Danny!” Michelle yelled. He turned around to look at her. “Um, thanks for trying to cover for me earlier.”

He stared back at her with a new look in his eyes. No longer were they full of rivalry and competition. In place were a set of chocolate brown eyes saturated with extreme intensity, passion and desire.

“No problem,” Danny said as he flashed her a smile. Michelle smiled back at him.

“Well, I guess we better go too,” Michelle said. “Come on, Bill.”

As Danny and Michelle walked out of the school and into their cars, they both took one last long look at each other. Bill observed their faces and shook his head. These two are hopelessly falling for each otherhe thought to himself.

Destiny by Hannah Cho Chapter 1

From the day Michelle Bauer & Danny Santos made their entrances into the world; they were destined to be together. They were born on the same day, in the same hospital and slept side by side in the neonatal section of the hospital. It was not coincidences that led them to having the same hobbies, passions and social standings. Destiny would take course in their lives. Forces always seemed to catapult them to each other.

The Bauer & Santos families were two of the most prestigious families of Springfield. The two families were also good friends but they were also rivals. For years, the Bauer & Santos families competed with one another in various events such as charity galas and parties. This rivalry also transcended into their children, especially Danny and Michelle.
From grammar school to high school Danny and Michelle competed for everything. From student council president to National Honor Society president to cross country captain, the competition between these two was fierce and electric.

It was now senior year and time for many memorable events such as prom, superlatives, senior party, graduation and more. For years Danny and Michelle had been competing for the covenant position of valedictorian. Both had been fierce in their academics and both were fierce to beat the other.

“Bill, come on you gotta tell me if I’m valedictorian!” pleaded Michelle.

“Michelle, you know I don’t know the class rankings!” replied her best friend Bill.

“Bill, you intern at the counselor’s office, you’ve gotta know! I mean you work right next to the filing cabinets and computers that rank everyone in our class,” argued Michelle.

“Hey, even if I knew, I wouldn’t tell you,” said Bill.

“And why is that?” asked Michelle.

“Because for one, if I told you that you were ranked first you’d be on cloud nine and go rub it in Danny’s face and my hide would be tanned because the school board and administration would absolutely all go into cardiac arrest I leaked it out to you. AND if I tell you that Danny’s valedictorian, you’d go ballistic and go slash the tires on his sweet Mustang and then go do God-knows-whatelse and knowing you, you’d probably talk me into helping you, which would make me an accessory to a felony which would land me in deep trouble which of course would not look too great on my application to Springfield U,” Bill explained.

“Damn Bill, no wonder you’re the captain of debate club and the #1 debater in the state. Oh well guess I’ll have to wait and see.” Michelle said with a michevious smile.

“Oh no Michelle! I know that smile, you always give me that face when you’re about to do something stupid and usually that involves me getting into trouble,” Bill lamented.

“Oh chill out Bill, have I ever gotten you arrested?” Michelle said with a wink.

That night while Bill was out with his girlfriend Pilar, who happened to be Danny’s younger sister, Michelle stole the keys he had to the counselor’s office. She drove her 4-runner to Springfield High and slowly crept into the school. Dressed in black, she slowly opened the door to the office and snuck inside. Cautiously, she turned on the computer and began searching for the senior class rankings.

“Ah-hah, the class rankings.” she whispered triumphantly to herself.

Suddenly there was a loud noise and a dark figure looming over her.

“Well, well, well, just what do we have here? Michelle, what the hell do you think you’re doing?!” a voice said.

Michelle quickly grabbed her flashlight and shone it at the source of the voice.

“Danny Santos! I should have known! And you know exactly why I’m here. I just want proof that I outrank you and am valedictorian!” she yelled.

“Shhh, someone could hear you!” he fiercely whispered.

“Well who the hell would come here on a Friday night?” Michelle asked sarcastically.

“Well obviously people like you who want to break the law and get caught,” Danny said back.

“If I’m not mistaken, you’re here for the exact same reason I am, which makes you just as bad as I am!” said Michelle.

“Touche, Ms. Bauer.” Danny said with an eyebrow raised. The doorknob turned and footsteps were heard.

“What was that?” Michelle said alarmed.

“Damn, it’s Mr. Patterson the night janitor. He probably heard us talking or something. Shh, get down!” Danny instructed as he grabbed Michelle’s arm.

“Danny what are you doing?” Michelle asked.

“Trying not to get caught genius! Now come hide behind here.” he instructed as he led Michelle to a narrow space behind some cabinets.

“The space is too small, both of us can’t fit.” Michelle complained.

The footsteps grew louder as they approached the duo. Danny laid down by the cabinets and pulled Michelle onto him, pinning her body on top of his.
Michelle gasped at Danny’s actions. Her breathing was labored as she laid on top of Danny’s very defined, muscular, chiseled body. Suddenly, Michelle found her temperature rising.

How can I be attracted to Danny Santos? I loathe this guy! Ive been competing against him since we were in diapers. Michelle thought to herself. But he has such a great body! And those eyes, theyre sending electric chills down my body!

Michelle and Danny stared into each other’s eyes and the heat between them began to intensify.

You gotta stop Danny! You can’t let Michelle Bauer do this to you! You can handle yourself! Danny tried to reassure himself. But she’s so damn hot!

“Well who would have thought that me and you would ever end up in this position?” Michelle said coyly.

“Yeah who would have thought.” Danny said in labored breathing. He slowly began to draw his hand from his side and up Michelle’s leg to her thigh. “And who would have thought that I would do this,” he said as he started leaning towards her face. Michelle closed her eyes and leaned forward as well. For the first time in her life, she wanted Danny Santos, who happened to be her biggest rival. Five minutes ago she would have clobbered him if he tried to touch her. Now as he started to touch her body, she wanted nothing more but for him to continue and keep sending these intense currents down her body. Just as their lips were millimeters apart, a flashlight shined in their faces.

“What the hell are you two doing?” boomed a voice.

Michelle looked up and recognized the face. “Bill?” she asked.

“Yes oh clever one it’s me!” Bill said irritably as he turned on the lights. “I was driving Pilar home when I discovered that a certain pair of keys were missing from my keychain.”

Michelle sheepishly dangled the keys in the air. “Well guess you’ve found them.” She said as Bill angrily snatched the keys away from her.

“Wait, what are you doing here?” he said as he pointed at Danny. He took a closer look at the pair and stared at their positions. It clearly looked like Bill had interrupted some kind of hot interlude between Danny and Michelle. This of course puzzled him. These two can’t stand each other so why the hell are they on top of each other like they were gonna make out or something? Bill thought to himself. “Danny, why is Michelle on top of you?” he questioned as Michelle hurriedly got up from Danny’s arms.

“We were just trying to hide. We thought you were the janitor. Bill, this isn’t what it looks like, nothing happened,” Danny stammered.

“Well it sure as hell doesn’t look like nothing happened,” Bill retorted. “Whatever, I don’t care. Let’s just get out of here before we all get caught.”

“Too late,” a voice said from behind.
