Hi guys! This is my new story: High School Drama! I'm so excited so plz follow, favorite and review! Hope u guys like it! I do not own the Hunger Games!
"What do you mean your moving?!"
"I'm sorry Katniss, I am but I have no choice."
"Madge, where are you moving?" I ask her in a desperate voice.
"USA", Madge answers.
I can't believe what I'm hearing. Why is my best friend moving to the USA? So USA beats Sydney! Since when?! I've been her best friend since primary school and now she's just gonna go and ditch me! I have no other friends and-
"Katniss", Madge says snapping me out of my thoughts. "I really am sorry. I'm gonna miss you so much."
"I know", I say with a tear falling down my cheek.
Madge pulls me into a long hug but soon she has to go.
"Madge come on, we need to go!" Madge's dad yells up the stairs.
"OK!" Madge shouts back then looks toward me. "When do you leave?"
"Thursday", Madge answers.
"What! In 2 days!" I say.
"Yeah. Well maybe we can get together before I go. Maybe Wednesday. Do you want to come over Wednesday night for dinner?" Madge asks.
"Yep, sure. I'll see you then", I say.
Madge smiles and pulls me in for a quick hug. "Bye."
"Bye", I say back.
She smiles then heads down the stairs. Gosh I'm gonna miss her. How am I going to survive without her?
"Bye mum!" I yell out.
"Bye honey!" She calls back.
I head down the dirt road and head to school.
Then I walk past his house. The most popular and hottest guy in school. Peeta Mellark. I've had a huge crush on him for years now. I always want to go and talk to him, but I always chicken out. Maybe I'll have enough courage one day and go talk to him. Maybe.
Oh gosh. He's washing his car. Topless.
Peeta's wearing only cute black skinny jeans. So hot and his muscles. Oh his muscles…..
I get so distracted that I walk straight into a light post and fall to the ground. Everything right now is a blur and I'm starting to have a massive headache.
Even though how blurry everything is right now, I can still make out a figure rushing over to help me. Peeta.
"Are you alright?" He asks.
"Yeah, umm, yeah", I say nervously. I sound like such an idiot.
"It doesn't seem like it. You err…have a massive bump on your head", Peeta says with a cute and charming smile. "Here."
Peeta holds out his hand and I take it and he pulls me up.
"Thanks", I say. There's a long pause until Peeta breaks the silence and lets go of my hand.
"Well if you're alright, I better quickly finish washing my car before school starts" Peeta says.
"Oh yeah. Ok…well see you later then", I say sounding like an idiot again.
"Bye", he says with a wave and walks off.
I start to walk off, but take one last look at him. When I look back, I see him staring straight at me. He smiles shyly and turns away and starts to wash his car.
I walk along and smile. I actually talked to him. Peeta Mellark takes my breath away.
"Wait. So you walked into a light post?'' Madge says.
"Yes. I know I'm such a dork", I answer and take off the ice-pack. "Has it gone down a bit?"
"Yes. Kind of…..not really", Madge says with a smile. I roll my eyes. "I still can't believe you talked to the Peeta Mellark. When I leave I expect you to give me all the goss about him", Madge says with a wink.
I smile and the bell goes for class. Madge grabs the ice-pack and waves then heads off down the corridor.
I sigh and head towards class. Well at least I get to see him in class.
"Yep. I'm heading out the door now. Ok bye."
I hang up on Madge and head out the door to the car. Mum's waiting in there for me so I quickly go in.
"What took so long?" Mum asks.
"Sorry. Couldn't get Madge off the phone", I say.
"You're gonna really miss her aren't you?" Mum says while reversing out the driveway.
"Yeah; I am", I say with a sigh.
"Well have a good night and make sure you keep in touch. Katniss, you really have to make new friends. What are you gonna do when Madge's not around" Mum says.
"I know ok?" I snap.
Mum sighs and rolls her eyes. We don't talk for the rest of the drive.
Mum soon pulls up in Madge's driveway and drops me off.
"Have a good time. I'll pick you up at 9", Mum says.
"Ok thanks. Bye", I say. I open the car door of our range rover and jump out. I close the door and mum reverses out. I wave and then head over to the door.
I'm about to knock on the door but it opens and Madge appears.
"Hi!" Madge says excited. She gives me a quick hug and gestures for me to come in.
I walk in and smell a sweet smell of a plum stew. My favorite.
"Oh, Katniss dear! It's so nice to see you again!" Madge's mum Angela says and gives me a hug and kiss on both cheeks.
"Same with you", I say politely even though I really don't like her. Fortunately, Robert Madge's father comes in. I like him so much better than Angela.
"Hi Robert", I say with a smile.
"Hello Katniss", Robert says and gives me a quick hug.
"You're just in time for dinner! Sae was just about to dish up!" Angela says excited.
We walk over to the kitchen and dining area and I say hello to Greasy Sae. She smiles and continues to dish up the plum stew.
Sae is the best cook I know and she defiantly makes the best plum stew and pork roast with crackly.
"So Madge must've told you that we're moving. Did she tell you why?" Angela asks at the dining table and continues to eat her stew.
"Umm….was it because Robert got a job over there?" I ask.
"No. Not just because of that. I can't believe you didn't tell her Madge", Angela says and gives a look to Madge.
"So what's the reason then?" I ask.
"Madge is going to be an actor over there in movies", Robert says.
Out sprays my water across the table. "What?!" I ask still surprised. "I never knew you wanted to be an actor!"
"You didn't? Well that's weird because that's been her plan all along since she got here. She was gonna stay here a few years and then head back to the USA to continue her acting", Angela says.
I look over at Madge who's sitting there playing with her food. Why has she never told me that before?! I'm her best friend!
"Why have you never told me that?" I ask Madge quietly.
"Didn't want to", Madge says so quietly that I almost didn't hear her. She didn't want to? Great! That's totally what I wanted to hear. NOT!
"Excuse me", I say to Robert and Angela. I get up from the table and go outside to call mum.
"Hi mum. Can you pick me up a bit earlier? Maybe in half an hour or so please?" I ask.
"Oh, umm….ok. But why?"
"Thanks bye", I say and hang up before she can say anything.
I put my phone back in my pocket and head back in. I go to the table and Madge isn't there. "Where's Madge?" I ask.
"She went up to her room", Rob answers.
"Oh ok. Thanks for dinner", I say to them then thank say who's in the kitchen. After, I go up and see Madge. She's lying on her bed facing the wall.
"Hey", I say.
She rolls over. "Madge why didn't you want to tell me?"
"Because I didn't want to", she answers.
"I know but why?" I ask again getting frustrated.
"Because I didn't want to upset you and I didn't know how you'd react", Madge says with a sigh.
I sigh too and say, "Madge, you upset me more by not telling me. I think it's great that you want to be an actor and I'm glad that you're gonna go and follow your dreams. But can you at least tell me next time. You can tell me anything."
"I'm sorry", Madge says and sits up to give me a hug. "Why did you ring your mum to pick you up earlier?"
"You were listening?!" I say.
"Yeah…. Sorry." Madge says with a cheeky smile.
"That's ok but I just though that you really need some more time to pack and get ready since you're leaving tomorrow", I say.
"Oh ok", Madge says.
"Pick up your phone! It's your bestie!"
I wake up with a jolt and sigh. Stupid ring tone. I look at the clock and it's 6 o'clock. I reach over to my bed side table and answer my phone.
"Hi Madge", I say rubbing my eyes.
"Hi sorry for waking you", Madge says.
"I just wanted to say bye. I'll miss you"
"Shit! Got to go. I'll ring you later."
"Ok bye Madge", I say.
Gosh I'm gonna miss her.
