I had known her since maybe sophomore? No, freshman year. Even though she was in Middle school, everyone knew who she was. But sophomore year was the year I actually talked to her. She had known Madge for the longest time. And for a while, she would hang out with us. She was always very quiet. Didn't say much unless she was asked.

I had had a couple of conversations with her. Gotten her drunk, and high a few times. It was always outside a party or something. In my car, just us two. She would always be scared, saying how one day I was going to drug her or something. Something would go wrong. So I would try first then give it to her.

I remember the first time she really got fucked up. She was giggling, and laughing, and having great time. I was a little on the fucked up side. She starting take off her jacket, saying she was hot. Then her shirt accidentally came off with it. I think I was drooling. She looked at me.

"What are you looking at Jones?" she asked, laughing. She looked down at her boobs and pushed them up. "Theyre not that big," she whispered.

"I don't know Everdeen. Theyre pretty big," I laughed, trying to play it off.

"You can touch them," she said all matter of fact like. "I mean, I know tha sounds whoreish and I'm not a whore, but you can touch them if you want. I mean youre practically eye raping them." I looked t her shocked. I think that was the most I had actually ever heard her say in one sentence.

"Uhh," I had been with girls, but she was different. I didn't want to take advantage of her like this.

"God just touch me!" she yelled. She grabbed my hands and put them on her boobs, and held them there. God. Damn. "Look Cato, I know I shouldn't be saying this but im feeling pretty ballsy, even though I don't have balls, but still. I like you. Like, like you, like you. And I want you. Badly. Is that weird? Dare you just like completely disgusted by me?"

I was at a loss of words. And she looked like she was about to blow. Instead, I just slowly removed my hands from her boobs, and moved them to her face. I kissed her. And my mind was gone. Soon enough, the back seat was getting it. And I couldn't object.

So yea, I might have taken her virginity. Did she remember it in the morning? Oh yes. And she was, a mess. But by the time we departed, I was kissed goodbye.

This ended up happening more then once. But on Monday, she would act just as normal as ever. With the occasional wink or two, but everyone thought she was innocent, with her big eyes, and dressy clothes.

But then she was gone. He dad died, and no one saw her again. Madge was the only one who talked to her after she left. And I have got to say, I think I missed her the most. The group moved on pretty fast, Glimmer making a move on me every chance she got, yea I would do stuff with her. But every morning I woke up with Glimmer, my mind would be with someone else.

It was Monday, mid semester of my Senior year. That's when I saw her. Hallway. Just like any other day. Her hand in someone elses. Everyone else was already in class, for I was ditching to leave. They looked like they were arguing. His grip on her hand looked like it was killing her, and she had her hood up, I could see the bruises. He suddenly shoved her against the locker. His hand on her throat. She squeaked, and pawed at his hand. I ran over and shoved the dude off her.

"Who do you think you are? Putting a hand on a women like that?!" I yelled. He came back.

"Stay out of my business." He growled.

"Gale, stop! He's an old friend." I looked at her. She was looking intensly at me. "Gale just go!" she yelled.

"Or else what?" he asked. Stepping up to her. She stood up right back.

"You know what." She whispered. He threw a sideways glance at me. Then stormed off. Once he was around the corner, she broke down.

"You need to help me you need to get me out of her please." She begged. Please. She was gripping my arms. "Help me now. Please." She cried. I took her in my arms, and hugged her while she sobbed into my chest.

"You're ok. I wont let him hurt you." She looked up at me.

"Am I Cato?" she said.

"You're safe with me," I told her.
