A/N- DISCLAIMER: I DON'T OWN THG OR ANY OF THE CHARACTERS

Thursday

*Music plays*

Have you got colour in your cheeks?

Do you ever get that fear that you can't shift the type that sticks around like summat in your teeth?

Are there some aces up your sleeve?

Have you no idea that you're in deep?

I dreamt about you nearly every night this week.

I'm awoken by the sound of my ring-tone.

"Uggh."

I reach under my pillow, grab my cell phone and drop it to the ground when the bright light comes in contact with my eyes.

*Music plays*

How many secrets can you keep?

'Cause there's this tune I found that makes me think of you somehow,

And I play it on repeat.

Until I fall asleep-

I reach down, pick up the phone from the ground and answer it.

"Hel-hello?" I ask with a yawn

"Hey Kat, you asleep?"

"No, of course not." I say sarcastically

"Meet me outside your house."

"No."

"Come on, please."

"Whyyyyy?" I whine

"So we can go somewhere."

I check the time

"At 1:00 AM?"

"You know you want to."

"Fine."

My body rolls off the bed and I hit the ground.

My eyes feel heavy and close for a few seconds before I quickly open them. Lazily I make my way over to my closet where I put on my pink hoodie and slip on some pink flip-flops.

Hopefully tonight isn't one of those restless nights for dad.

I hurry down the stairs and stop when I notice dad eating cereal.

"Where are you off to?"

"Umm...early morning jog."

"In your pj's , hoodie and flip-flops?"

"Early morning walk?"

"I'm going to let this slide because i'm really tired."

"Dad i-"

"Be back before sunrise and be careful."

"Alright." I say and run out the door.

I quickly make my way to Andrew's car. The air is cold and it's misty outside, i'm very happy for the warmth I get when inside his car. He starts driving as soon as I close the door.

"Wow silk pj's." Andrew says stressing on the silk

"And not even a bra on."

"Looks like i'm getting laid tonight." He says while biting his lip

"Not even if the human race depended on it." I reply

"Why?" I ask

"Why what?"

"Do you want me to go somewhere with you at 1 AM?"

"Because I do."

"Why didn't you ask one of your friends?"

"Because I want to hang out with someone who isn't my friend because of my looks, money or popularity."

"Andrew..."

"Yes."

"I'm not your friend."

"But you wanna be."

"Of course I do." I say sarcastically

"Stop questioning me just relax." He says turning up the volume

*Left you multiple missed calls until my message you replyWhy'd you only call me when you're high?High, why'd you only call me when you're high?*

Somewhere darkerTalking the same shite [ Andrew Sings ]

"You know this song?" I ask

"Yeah, I love Arctic Monkeys."

"Me too."

"Well sing the song with me then."

"I don't know Andrew..."

"Sing the song with me Everdeen."

"Fine."

Now it's three in the morning and I'm trying to change your mindLeft you multiple missed calls until my message you reply (message you reply) [we sing in unison]

Why'd you only call me when you're high? [ I sing ]

High, why'd you only call me when you're high? [Andrew sings]

And I can't see you here wondering where am I?Sorta feels like I'm running out of timeI haven't found what I was hoping to findYou said you gotta be up in the morning, gonna have an early nightAnd you're starting to bore me, babyWhy'd you only call me when you're high? [ we sing in unison ]

Why'd you only ever phone me when you're high? [ Andrew sings ]

Why'd you only ever phone me when you're high? [ I sing ]

Why'd you only ever phone me when you're high? [ Andrew sings ]

Why'd you only ever phone me when you're high? [ I sing ]

"See that wasn't so bad."

I smile

"This still doesn't make me your friend."

"Mhmm, I hear ya."

After a few hours of driving we arrive at a cliff edge.

"What are we doing here?"

"Watching the stars while drinking vodka and eating sour worms."

"Really?"

"Really."

About 6 shots of vodka each and 4 packets of sour gummy worms later we're laying down in the front seat of his car, our legs are entangled and my head is near the door on the left side of the car and his head near the door on the right.

"SPRINKLES!" I shout

"What?" He asks while laughing

"They're everywhere." I say stretching my hands up towards the sky

"Oh God Katniss why can't my friends be as awesome as you!"

I giggle

"I could be your friend." I say and laugh

"I want you to be more than that."

I sit up and he does too

"Really?" I ask

"Yes." He says while cupping my cheek

"Me too." i say

"Just joking, or am I?" i say

"I feel dizzy." i say

"Me too." he says

He pushes a strand of hair behind my ear.

"You know if you weren't such and asshole you'd be mine." I say pulling him closer to me

"Oops, maybe I shouldn't have said that." I say with a chuckle

"Maybe you should've." He says with a smirk

His lips get closer and closer to mine and for a moment I actually want him to kiss me.

But just when our lips are about to touch he stops moving forward and leans his forehead against mine.

"Thanks." He says

"For what?"

"Tonight."

"Anytime."

"Maybe I don't hate you." He says

"Maybe I don't hate you too." I reply
