[Music Plays]

I'm gonna break your little heart,

Watch you take the fall,

Laughing all the way to the hospital,

'Cause there's nothing surgery can do,

When I break your little heart in two.

I'm listening to music on my 5s while strolling through the park. White snow glistens from the outstretched branches of the trees, while snow flakes still gently float down to the ground covering up anything in their path. The sun stays hidden behind the thick cotton like clouds, I walk slowly taking in the cool, crisp air.

While standing at the edge of the pond and feeding the swans I see the two mean that Peeta sells drugs to, they look extremely mad, they're yelling at someone who is blocked out of my view by the tree, it's only when they hold the person by their shirt neck and whisper a threat I realize it's Peeta.

However instead of being scared he's laughing his ass off.

It's probably not a good idea to go over there but I can't just leave him.

I make my way over to them and put on a poker face.

"Let go of him." I snap

"The man let's go of him and they both kick him in his stomach.

I have a strange urge to rush to his side and make sure he's alright but I have to get rid of these men first.

They walk up to me and cross their arms.

"And what if we don't?" The man with the deeper voice asks

"You just did moron." I say

He gets really angry and so does the other one but it doesn't scare me.

"Yeah I called you a moron, what you gonna do about it?"

They step closer which is mean to intimidate me but it just causes me to scowl.

"Ooh, i'm so scared." I say

"You can leave now." I say sounding annoyed

They shove me against a tree roughly and a horrible pain shoots up my spine.

"Watch your back." They say in unison

"Still not scared." I say as they walk away even though i'm terrified.

I pick Peeta up and dust the snow and grass off his clothes.

My back is against the tree and he stands with his body pressed against mine and his head buried in my neck.

"Never do that again." He says

"Why?"

"You don't know who you're dealing with Kat, they can kill you and easily cover up their tracks."

"I'm not scared of them, and you can't expect me to see them threatening you and just ignore it."

"Well i'd prefer if you did."

"You can't tell me what to do." I say crossing my arms

"Would you just stay out of this!" He shouts angrily

"I mean...sorry." He sighs

"I'm not going to let them hurt you." I say

He pulls his face away from my neck.

"You're not making it easy for me to protect you when you do this."

"I don't need protecting." I say coldly

"Yes! You do!" He shouts

"God!" He shouts again and kicks a pebble into the pond.

He closes his eyes and takes a deep breath.

"Sorry."

"I don't want you to get killed."

"I'm not going to, i'll be careful."

"It doesn't matter how careful you are."

"Peeta."

"Katniss."

"I guess we're both scared to lose eachother."

"Well you're not going to lose me, not now not ever." He says

He leans in and presses his soft lips against mine. My mind goes completely foggy and I feel like i'm floating, the way our lips move together and the way his tongue explores my mouth is enough to take me to another world. This kiss ignites a spark within me that is way out of my control.

He pulls his lips away from mine and we look at eachother in shock for a while.

"That did not happen." I say

"Yeah." He says passing his hand through his hair

"So we're going to pretend it didn't happen?" I ask

"Pretend what didn't happen?" He asks

"Good boy." I say tapping his head.

He nods and looks deep into my eyes as if trying to see into the deepest cracks and corners of my mind and soul.

He gives a triumphant smile when he finds what he was looking for.

He gives me a quick chaste kiss and walks away.

"Wow." I say under my breath

"OMG!" Madge exclaims

"So you kissed twice?" Annie squeals

I nod and twirl a lock of my hair around my index finger.

"Why aren't you happy and screaming?" They ask in unison.

They're always saying things together. I guess it's a habit they formed from being best-friends for 12 years. I couldn't have picked it up though because i've only known them for 5 years.

"I don't know...i'm not really sure how I should feel."

"Come on Katniss." They whine in unison

"This is Andrew Mellark we're talking about." They say

You mean Peeta Mellark.

"Not Andrew Cartwright." Annie says

"Or Andrew Harrison." Madge says

"Andrew Mellark!" They shout happily

"I know, I know." I say

"You've been spending a lot of time with him lately." Annie says

"Do you like him?" Madge asks

"I have no idea."

"Before there was no doubt in my mind that I hate him but now i'm not so sure."

"Aww you like him!" They squeal

"Katniss no friends over when you're grounded!" Mom shouts from downstairs

I say i'll call them later, then they grab their handbags and leave.

Could I really like him? No, impossible we despise each other it's our thing. And even if I did like him, he wouldn't like me back obviously, i'm just not his type.

He's probably only my friend because someone dared him to be, but he wouldn't have opened up to me.

The thought of me liking him causes me to blush but causes my heart to ache at the same time. Not the average heart ache though, I can actually feel my heart slowly sinking and breaking as we spend more and more time together.

Maybe I do like him and maybe he likes me but nothing can be done about us, we just shouldn't be together it's a simple as that.

My phone buzzes, when I check my messages I see it's from Peeta.

Peeta

I shit you not, I can't stop thinking about that kiss, Katniss Everdeen what have you done to me.

Nothing you aren't capable of handling.
