Okay third chapter lets go!
This chapter was inspired by the song "Little Doves" by Brooke Waggoner
I don't own The Hunger Games unless . . . SURPRISE I'm Suzanne Collins ! (LOL as if)
He looks at me again, in assembly, while Headmaster Snow is yammering on about world peace i keep sneaking glances at him, at Cato, with those beautiful ocean blue eyes and sandy blonde hair.
The only problem is, he keeps looking at me too and every time he does Katniss is there tapping me on the shoulder taunting, "He's looking at you again."
He is sat one row in front of us at the other side of the hall so He has to turn sideways to look,but every time he glances at me butterflies take flight in my stomach.
Eliza puts her hand to my ear pushing her auburn hair out of the way and whispers quietly "Does he like you or something this whole time he's been turning to look at you ?"
"No, of course not, he's Cato, one of my best friends now pay attention to the teacher." I snap
I zone out completely in Spanish and look out the window thinking of him, of Cato, he is a really good friend and never anything more. But the question has been lingering in my mind this whole day, that forbidden question, What if ?
As the day skips to English I slip in the class only to look at the seating plan and find my name, next to Cato's.
Oh well, it could be worse at least I have Eliza and Katniss behind me next to Thresh, Glimmer on the other side of Cato and infront of us are Marvel and Peeta.
I sit down to find that Mrs Ehzaria but we call her Enobaria is our teacher, she is very strict. I spot Annie on the other side of the room next to Finnick, she is freaking out and only I know she liked him from the moment she looked in those sea green eyes, in front of her is Johanna next to Gale who looks lovingly at Madge.
Enobaria calls for quiet as she announces our topic, "This term we're focusing on the poetic play by Shakespeare called Romeo and Juliet, now any of you Drama Scholars can expect to see this in your afternoon lessons as you will be putting on a production of the play soon."
Pretty much every Drama Scholar in the room groans, Cato and I included.
"Now, erm . . ., Johanna would you be nice enough to hand out the books?" She asks.
"I'd love to." She gleams casting a mischievous glance my way.
In our case it's Glimmer taht gets her own, so as Johanna whacks Cato on the head with the book she whispers to me, "Lucky Clove, getting to share with Cato!".
I turn back to Cato who looks entrigued "What did she just say to you?" he demands.
"Nothing importaint to you!" I tell him and he didn't ask again.
Enobaria tells everyone to recite the piece to each other in our pairs, I stare deep into his eyes as we recite the words, his eyes find mine, I feel like there's elecricity flowing through my veins, into my heart, and through our stare and we finish our work.
The whole class has stopped to look at us which means, Johanna giving me the thumbs up and Gale, sat next to her, looking very confused. I can't hold in the laughter bubbling up inside of me.
Enobaria breaks out the applause and flashes her shark toothed smile before settling us down. I feel like there may be a connection between Cato and I, I just need to find it and for now I wait.
Darn, Clove's looking at me again.
Stay calm Cato, casually swivel your body turn your head and look at her . . . my head snaps back to the front as she's looking at me again with Katniss tapping on her shoulder and Eliza whispering in her ear.
I turn my head to Finnick as he repeatedly taps me on the shoulder as he says, "Dude, are you into Clove or something you keep looking at her?"
I reply sighing, "No Finnick of course I don't she's . . . She's Clove." I tell him, he nods and we don't mention it again.
I sit through the rest of assembly thinking of her, of Clove, she's just so beautiful but she's Clove and as beautiful as she is we've come too far as friends to just have it all crash down, I can't help but feel something more for her, something deeper.
The bell rings and the rest of my classes pass by in a blur, right up until English, I walk into the class talking to Thresh about some party one of the richer kids are throwing, to stop, look at the seating plan and see my name, next to Clove's.
I do a double take, the realization hitting me later than it should have, I'm sat next to Clove!
It could be worse I suppose, at least I have Thresh behind me and Marvel and Peeta.
I sit down to find that Mrs Ehzaria but we call her Enobaria is our teacher, great, I'm totally going to fail this class !
I spot Annie mouthing to Clove on the other side of the room next to Finnick she is freaking out and it's pretty pretty obvious that she likes him, in front of her is Johanna sat next to Gale who is currently drooling over Madge.
Enobaria calls for quiet as she announces our topic, "This term we're focusing on the poetic play by Shakespeare called Romeo and Juliet, now any of you Drama Scholars can expect to see this in your afternoon lessons as you will be putting on a production of the play soon." Pretty much every Drama Scholar in the room groans, including me and Clove.
God I hate Shakespeare, half the time you have no idea what anything means.
"Now, erm . . ., Johanna would you be nice enough to hand out the books?" She asks. "I'd love to." She said casting a mischievous glance toward Clove.
Lucky Glimmer! So whilst Johanna smacks me on the head with the book she whispers something to Clove, then Clove turns round to me with a scowl on her face. Why did she make Clove scowl like that, is it me?
"What did she just say to you?" I demand.
"Nothing importaint to you!" she snaps. She's been so moody lately, I'm starting to think I've done something wrong.
Enobaria makes us recite the words to each other, I gaze into her eyes, as she does mine, I feel that feeling of something more again, something that I have to stop feeling.
The whole class has stopped to look at us and, eurgh Finnick has a smirk on his face as he mouths "Clato" my god I'm never going to hear the end of this, like what happened with Eliza and Marvel he still laughs about it every time he sees her.
And then Clove bursts out laughing.
My head snaps back towards her, had she just seen what Finnick said, I hope not.
No time to ask her however as then Enobaria breaks out the applause and flashes her shark toothed smile before settling us down.
I feel like there may be a connection between Clove and I, I just need to find it and for now I wait.
