Take a Chance on Claire Gibson



Hi. I’m Claire. You might have already seen me at the Deep Haven pizza joint – Pierre’s Pizza.

I make a mean Spinach Pizza. I also tend the flowers at the Deep Haven Community Gardens.

Yeah, that’s right, exciting stuff.

I’m going places.

Actually, okay, I know that’s not funny. My entire life seems to be on hold since I graduated from

high school seven years ago. It’s not that I don’t want to do something amazing or exciting. It’s

just that…well, I don’t know what that might be.

See, since my best friend, Felicity, died, I seem to be stuck in Deep Haven. I can’t seem to find

my groove. I spend most of my time watching over my grandfather, Gibs, and looking in on

Tiger and Darek. And Jensen – yes, I see him hanging around also. My heart just hurts for him,

even though I can’t bring myself to talk to him.

I know the accident wasn’t his fault. Exactly. No, he has other reasons to feel guilty. And it’s for

those reasons I can’t forgive him.

Even if I’ve never stopped loving him. But, he never loved me, so I’m not sure why I’m still

pining for him.

No. Not pining. Just…wishing life could have been different for all of us. Wishing that once

upon a time Jensen had possessed the courage to could take a chance on me. Then, maybe

everything would have been different.

Maybe we all would have had a happily ever after.

So, I’m stuck here in the no-man’s land of grief, regret…confusion, and unless something

changes, I guess I’ll be in Deep Haven forever, making pizza, playing in the Blue Monkeys and

tending the garden.

And really, nothing exciting ever happens in Deep Haven, right?
