We were on a train headed on our way to district twelve going to help clear up all of the rubble and charred belongings.
It was part of a "rebuild district 12" campaign and Haymitch ,Katniss ,Peeta ,Gale and I all shared a portion of the train because it was so cramped with people we all couldn't have separate dining ,living and bathrooms .
The only things we did have were small separate sleeping quarters.
I sat on a soft blue chair combing out my blond curls.
No one was awake at two in the morning so I thought I was safe from people seeing me with minimal makeup and without my hair dye and wigs.
I was wrong.
Haymitch stumbled into my room by mistake, obviously after heavily drinking all night.
I threw a blanket over my head not wanting even a drunken Haymitch to see me like this.
He hiccupped and stumbled to the bathroom.
I thought I was safe so I went back to combing my hair.
A moment later Haymitch came out of the bathroom.
He stared at me for a moment and than said "Well what's this pretty little thing doing in ugly old Effie's room?"
I couldn't believe the nerve this man had...Wait did he just call me a "pretty little thing?"
He stumbled toward me, I stood up straight.
"Look a little closer you drunk," I scoffed
"I AM Effie."
He laughed "Oops," he said and then he said "what happened to you?"
"Nothing happened to me you twit, I just took of my makeup." I said
"Well you look g-o-r uh... gorgeous."
"No I don't Haymitch, you're just drunk."
If…If I was drunk would I do this?" he asked raising his eyebrows and leaning over to kiss me.
I put my hand on his chest and gently pushed him backwards and said "Yes Haymitch, you would only do that if you were drunk, you can't stand me when you're semi-sober."
He lead toward me and giggled "Wanna here a secret?"
He asked "Not really." I said
Well he told me anyway.
"I think I kind of liked you but I acted like I didn't." he said
"But now that I've seen you without makeup whoa ... now I know I like you."
"That's enough Haymitch." I said
I led him to the small room that was his to sleep in.
"I'm going to stand out here and you are going to get some proper nightclothes on and go to sleep."
He came back a minute later in pajamas that didn't match but it was better than his filthy clothes.
"Okay Haymitch now go to sleep, I'll check on you in the morning."
"Wait!" he said grabbing my arm tightly.
"Please don't leave me, I have nightmares." he said like a small child.
I sighed "Of what Haymitch?" I asked tiredly.
"Of my family," he said quietly, eyes cast downward.
Suddenly I felt really bad about treating him so coldly.
"I'm sorry Haymitch, but what do you want me to do?"
"I don't know." he said a tear running down his face.
This was a very, VERY different side of Haymitch.
I felt so bad for him .So I wrapped my arms around him and held him for a second.
"Okay Haymitch I'll sit in that red chair and wait until you fall asleep."
"Thanks." he hiccupped.
After he fell asleep I walked back to my room.
I think I might be having feelings for Haymitch
But that's ridiculous, tomorrow he will be the same rude Haymitch who doesn't think I'm pretty, and doesn't want me to stay around him.
So I push any thoughts of Haymitch Abernathy out of my mind and go to bed.
