Resize boot partition on /dev/sda?

Hey guys, I'm currently triple booting (Windows 8.1, Fedora 22, and KUbuntu 15.04) on my laptop, and I want to add another partition in. However, when I installed Fedora, it seemed to have taken up all the room on /dev/sda. The others take up about 500MiB each, while Fedora is taking up 21.38GiB. AND it says it's using everything, so I can't decrease the size. Here is the printout for 'fdisk -l'. I can't attach an image because apparently I don't have enough points, but it shows the same thing, and that the entire 21.38GiB is being used (exactly 4.00MiB is unused). How should I do this without breaking my partition? Thanks!
