I'm Not Interested

A/N- Disclaimer: I don't own THG or any of the characters. You'll understand why Peeta is known as " Andrew Mellark " later on in the fanfiction.

Monday

"Shit. Shit. Shit." I mutter under my breath as I fling my school bag over my left shoulder.

I rush downstairs and join my family at the breakfast table.

My father is sipping coffee from his over-sized mug and looking through the newspaper as usual, while mom gives Prim another lecture about why it's important to be home early.

I snatch a bunch of grapes from the bowl In the middle of the table and begin eating them.

"I'd love to stay but I'll be late for school." I say chugging down my glass of orange juice.

I rush to the front door and open it.

"Drive safely!" Mom yells

"Don't enjoy school too much!" Dad adds

"I will!" I shout back and make my way to my silver 2014 Honda Ridgeline.

The traffic is horrible this morning and the drivers are very grumpy. I've said some pretty unpleasant things to people today but that's what happens when you piss me off.

Finally cars start flowing like normal again and I arrive to the day prison known as 'school'

My car is usually parked right next to the exit of the car park so I can leave this place of horror as soon as possible, everyone knows that it's my spot and no one dares to park there except for today.

The parking slot is occupied by a red 2012 Lexus IS 250.

Nope, not today, the owner of this car will remove it immediately.

I quickly hop out of my truck and make my way over to the car.

The owner takes his time to get out of the car, locks it, slips his keys into his pocket and answers his phone.

"No, Delly, of course I love you."

While obviously lying to the girl on the other side of the phone he accidentally knocks into me and spills his cup of starbucks coffee onto my shirt.

"Uggh."

He hangs up his phone.

"Aren't you going to apologize for that Mellark?"

"I would, but I'm trying this new thing where I'm not nice to irrelevant people."

"Wow, a new term and you're still a dick-head."

"A dick-head that you're attracted to Everdeen."

"You wish."

He shrugs.

"Maybe I do." He says winks at me and walks away.

I feel butterflies rush through me. Ew. No. He's an asshole Katniss. Don't let him play games with your head.

His phone rings again and he picks it up.

"Hey Bianca, I was just thinking about you." He says and makes his way off to class.

And that's why I don't like him.

Shit, I forgot to make him move his car. I'll just find another space.

It's not easy but after 45 minutes of driving I find a spot, park the car, change my shirt and rush to class by the time I get there it's halfway through 3rd period.

"What's the reason this time Everdeen?" Mr. Goldsworthy asks

"Traffic."

"Seems reasonable."

"Take your new seat next to Andrew."

"Andrew?"

"Yes, Andrew."

"Mellark?"

"No, Andrew Harrison. Of course Andrew Mellark I'm the only Andrew in this class." Andrew interrupts

"Mellark." Mr. Goldsworthy warns him

"Whatever." He says and turns his attention back to Stacey who he's obviously flirting with.

So he's after 3 girls. Wow, that's lower than usual but then again the day has just started.

I don't care anyway, he's just an immature, self-absorbed, asshole.

I take my seat next to him and he winks at me, again. Stacey looks like she's about to blow a fuse.

"What?" I snap

"Get your own boyfriend Andrew is mine."

"I don't want Andrew."

"Ladies, ladies, no need to fight over me." He interrupts

"Don't feel special Mellark, we're not fighting over you."

"Right." He says and continues his conversation with Stacey

A crunched up paper hits my head.

I turn around, ready to shout at whoever did that.

"Sorry!" Annie and Madge say in unison

I give a little laugh and shake my head.

"It's fine."

"I can't believe he separated us." Madge says barely above whisper

"It's only for this class."

"True, wait for us in the hallway."

Lunch

"I just don't understand what girls see in him." I say slamming my locker door shut

"What's going on?" Finnick asks walking up to us

"Katniss is going on about her love for Andrew again." Madge says

Finnick wraps his arm around Annie's shoulder and kisses the crown of her head

"Hey Guys." Gale says walking up to us with a girl hooked under his arm

I don't know this one. Gale gets a new girlfriend like every week.

"You want me to hook you guys up?" Finnick asks

"Hook who up exactly?" Gale asks

"Katniss and Andrew." Annie says

"Sure you wanna do that Catnip?"

"No, I don't want to be with Andrew and I never will!" I shout

A little too loud because everyone turns and looks at me.

And to add to that none other than Andrew Mellark walks up to me and stands close to me. Too close. Our lips are centimeters apart.

He places his hand on the locker next to me.

I feel his warm breath against my lips, I get a hot fire feeling in the pit of my stomach and I'm sure everyone around me can hear my heart beat.

"Katniss." He says with a smirk

"A-andrew." I say with a deep breath

"I'm not making you nervous am I?"

"N-no."

"Then why are you stammering."

"I'm not."

"Well not anymore." He says

"I know you like me Katniss, I like you too, we could make this work."

Why does that make me want to blush?

He moves in closer so our lips are almost touching.

"I guess i'll see you around."

I let out a slight gasp as the taste of cinnamon rolls leaves his mouth and enters mine.

"I g-guess you will."

He smirks again and steps away from me.

I pass my hand through my long, brown hair and sigh.

"And you're sure you don't like him?" Gale asks

"Positive." I say and we head to lunch.

After School

"If you two don't mind I'd like to get in my truck." I say sarcastically

Andrew's making out with a girl against my truck, his hair looks extra messy. He's wearing an armless hoodie which gives you a full view of his tattoos, I don't usually like tattoos on people but his are beyond sexy.

Did I just say that?

Never mind.

This is getting really annoying.

"Guys, get off my car."

He pulls his lips away from Bianca's.

"You might want to chill in the trunk for a while Everdeen, we're just getting started." He says and kisses her again

I roll my eyes and get in my truck. I start the engine and drive off not caring what happened to them.

I go to Prim's school, pick her up and head off to the mall so I can help her pick out something for her friend Rue's birthday party.

We go to H & M , Forever 21 and Hollister.

Finally she decides to get a floral bodycon dress from forever 21.

Dad gave me $80 to do this and said I could spend the change so I buy us milkshakes.

We sit and talk.

"I have to pee." Prim says and runs off to the bathroom

As soon as she does Andrew slides into her seat.

"Oh god." I say and drink the milkshake

"Just thought I'd keep her seat warm."

"Right."

"Why are you here?"

He smiles and shrugs

"Maybe I want to spend time with you."

"Maybe you've run out of girls to mindfuck." I say and pull out my 5s

I unlock it and begin blogging on Tumblr.

"Playing hard to get, I like that."

"Whatever Andrew."

"Why don't you just accept the fact that I want to be with you."

"Because you don't, I know the game you play Andrew and I don't wish to be apart of it."

"What game?" He asks innocently

"The whole get in a girl's head, pretend you love her, break her heart beyond repair thing."

"I don't know what you're talking about."

"I know you and your stuck up, ass wipe friends think i'm a unattractive, socially-awkward, loser so just go away."

"Nope that's what my friends think of you."

"Wanna know what I think of you?"

"No."

"Well i'm going to tell you anyway."

I look up at him prepared for any insult he's about to throw my way.

"I think you're beautiful." He says and pushes a loose strand of hair behind my ear. By the look in his eyes I can tell that as hard as it is to believe he actually means it.

With that he walks away.

A/N- So that was the first chapter :) The reason he's called Andrew would be explained later on, please don't be upset or anything that I changed it in the first place, and that I made Peeta an asshole and a player . And you'll have to give their relationship time to grow in this fanfiction, but not too much. The things in Italic don't belong to me have a nice day/ night :)
