I can't believe what is happening. We have made it to his bedroom and he has placed me on the bed. When I reach for his shirt and begin to undo the buttons, he grabs my hands and pulls away. Now I am confused.
"Don't start, Haymitch. You just told me you want me and that you wouldn't deny it anymore." I'm upset and hurt.
"Yes, I did, and I meant it, but I also said we need to take this slow."
"But then you said you wanted me to stay. Have you changed your mind already?" I'm getting angry and I'm hurt. I knew this couldn't be real.
"Yes, but I didn't mean this," he says pulling my hand away from his half-way unbuttoned shirt. "Not tonight. I want this to be right."
"I guess I just thought that…" I pause and look away embarrassed and on the verge of tears. "I thought you wanted to…but I guess I was wrong."
"I'm sorry I gave you the wrong message, Sweetheart," he says with what I can only interpret as pity.
"No, I'm sorry. I have made a mistake." I am still looking at the ground; still not looking up at him. I know if I look at him right now my tears will betray me. "I should go home," I mumble so quietly I'm not sure he can hear me. What is wrong with me?
"Maybe tonight you should. I need to think about this, about everything." Now he is the one being quiet and I'm not sure what to make of it.
"Yeah, you're right…I should go."
"Katniss…wait…I didn't mean…" he says, grabbing my wrist when I turn to leave.
"No, I don't want to hear it Haymitch," I spit angrily as I pull my arm away. I pull with so much force that I stumble back when he lets go. I am at the door about to open it, when I hear Haymitch's voice.
"Katniss, let me explain…"
"No, goodbye Haymitch." My voice hitches as I say his name. My voice betrayed me and I hope he didn't notice. With my head down, I run out the door, and this time, I don't intend on coming back.
AN: I know I have not updated for a long time and I am sorry. Finals were rough and I just didn't have time to update. I know this is a short chapter, and again, I'm really sorry. Please Review!
