Contest Giveaway!

I have officially reached 100 followers!!! Big shiny smiles to that! In thanks I am holding a contest giveaway. The contest is simple: Drake is in a situation. He is given a string of choices choices and whoever picks the right choice( the choice he would make) will be entered into the contest.
How to get extra points?

3+ points if you're already a supporter of my blog, because I love you guys :)
1+ point if you become a supporter.
2+ if you blog about this contest.

I will use to choose the winner.

So here is the situation:

I felt claustrophobic, stuck in between making a choice, one I never thought I would have to make. Franky's bright eyes were bold and the memory of his skin taking the beating over mine was overbearing and so real, like it was just yesterday. I could see him gritting his teeth as my father wrapped his hands around his thin throat, making his pale face flush a bruised purple. He told me to run, to leave... He took the pain for me, he always did. I could never repay him for all that he has done and he has never asked me to... I have a feeling he never will...

My growing feelings for Amber were alien but welcoming and inspiring, she made me see life in a different way, she made me wake up for different reasons, she taught me that there just might be something out there to believe in. And Amber's family-- Patrick and Mable took me in, sheltered me when my own family lacked that ability. All of them played a part in making me who I am. It is because of them that I am here. How could I make this choice? How could I choose between them?
How could they make me choose?

*I understand the background information on why he has to chose is not given, just give it your best shot!* :)

So who does Drake decide to stand by?
1) His best friend who has stuck by him through his abusive childhood?
2) The girl he is slowly falling in love with?
3) The family that has taken him in when his own family was nowhere to be found?
4) Or, does he decide to stand alone, choosing neither because he simply can't.

Leave your answer in a comment below and be sure to let me know if you're already a supporter, if you became one and if you blogged about this contest!

The prizes?

Dear John, by Nicholas Sparks.

Description: An angry rebel, John dropped out of school and enlisted in the Army, not knowing what else to do with his life--until he meets the girl of his dreams, Savannah. Their mutual attraction quickly grows into the kind of love that leaves Savannah waiting for John to finish his tour of duty, and John wanting to settle down with the woman who has captured his heart. But 9/11 changes everything. John feels it is his duty to re-enlist. And sadly, the long separation finds Savannah falling in love with someone else. "Dear John," the letter read...and with those two words, a heart was broken and two lives were changed forever. Returning home, John must come to grips with the fact that Savannah, now married, is still his true love—and face the hardest decision of his life.

The Choice, by Nicholas Sparks.

Description: Travis Parker has everything a man could want: a good job, loyal friends, even a waterfront home in small-town North Carolina. In full pursuit of the good life -- boating, swimming, and regular barbecues with his good-natured buddies -- he holds the vague conviction that a serious relationship with a woman would only cramp his style. That is, until Gabby Holland moves in next door. Despite his attempts to be neighborly, the appealing redhead seems to have a chip on her shoulder about him...and the presence of her longtime boyfriend doesn't help. Despite himself, Travis can't stop trying to ingratiate himself with his new neighbor, and his persistent efforts lead them both to the doorstep of a journey that neither could have foreseen. Spanning the eventful years of young love, marriage and family, The Choice ultimately confronts us with the most heart wrenching question of all: how far would you go to keep the hope of love alive?

So there you go. Who doesn't love Nicholas Sparks? :)

The contest ends February 10th at 12pm.

Have a beautiful moment.

You have gotten an award for being cup-cake sweet from my blog:

Sorry I know you have already been given it previously but I really appreciate all your comments!!!

Christopher said...

In all honesty I don't think he should have to make a choice. Ultimatums ruin bonds, they don't reinforce them. I'll say 4), choose himself.

Bish Denham said...

I don't know Drake all that well, so I don't why he would have to choose between three things that are important to him. Particularly when he seems a thoughtful, introspective sort of guy. So I'm in agreement with Christopher. I don't think Drake would settle for anything less than the best for all concerned.

Kelly said...

He should choose himself, but at his age, attraction sometimes clouds emotions. He's going to go for the girl.

(wild guess!)

Tiana Lei said...

Hmmm. I'm going to guess that he chooses to stand alone. I dunno though. Choosing the girl would probably be my second guess.

DL Hammons said...

First...congrats on the 100 followers!

Second, I don't know, but being a guy I'd have to choose #1. Stand by those who stand by you.

Elana Johnson said...

Man, I have no idea! So rather than embarrass myself, I'll just say congrats on all the followers!

Shannon O'Donnell said...

Congrats on 100 followers! This is a tough, tough contest, Victoria. :)

I'm already a follower. I agree with Bish - we don't really have the background knowledge to choose well. Based on what we're given, it really does seem like he would choose to stand alone. I dunno...

Kimberly Franklin said...

I second Elana's comment. Congrats on 100 followers. : )

Mary Campbell said...

I'm choosing 4 - i think he would hate to have to make a choice. I'm a follower of course. Congrats on the 100 and counting followers. I want the Dear John book.
