Thank you for all the amazing reviews :)
Clove: Cato pulls me from my friends and into the empty hallway.
"What do you want?" I ask.
"I thought I asked you to change!" He replies.
"I told you! Popularity is important to me! I don't want to change and you can't force me." I ask folding my arms.
"Why is it so important?! Why can't you just change and be the likeable Clove that I know?!" He exclaims.
"Well why do you want me to so much?!"
"Because I've fallen for you!" He blurts.
Cato: She looks at me dumbfounded. To break the awkwardness, I lean down and kiss her, hard.
Clove: He leans down and kisses me passionately. I begin to kiss him back. I don't know if this is the right thing to do. He doesn't seem to care. He kisses me harshly, pushing me against the wall. One of his hands caresses my face and the other one is around my waist. I didn't even know what I was doing. What if someone saw? I guess I did have a small crush on him…And he was just so...Irresistible. My hands automatically wrap around his neck.
Cato: I felt her hands trail down my chest and up my shirt. She touches my abs and I felt shivers. I eventually pulled away when I ran out of breath. Damn that was hot.
"Serious?" She pants, looking up at me. I nod, catching my breath.
"Serious." I agree. "So, now will you be yourself?" I breathe. Her face darkens and she pushes me off her. I stumble back and catch my footing.
"Forget it. Forget what just happened, what you said, what I said, whatever. I don't know you." She mutters, walking away.
What?! She kissed me back! She obviously likes me!
Clove: He just wanted me to stop hurting Glimmer. He's just using me! Trying to make me fall for him then listening to what he tells me to do. He doesn't understand how important my popularity is!
"Wait! Clove!" He calls, running up and grabbing my arm. "Don't you understand? I like you, a lot. But I don't want you to be the fake Clove that you aren't. I like you. As in the REAL you. I don't want you being someone you aren't."
"How about you join Marvel's group instead of hanging out with Peeta? You can win the homecoming King with me. How about that?" I suggest. He throws my arm back to my side in disgust.
"Clove, you're not getting the picture here! Popularity isn't important! I don't want to be popular, if it means I have to act like you."
"Fine, then don't! I won't become a loser too!" I retort. He runs his fingers through his hair in frustration.
"Why is popularity so important to you!?" He demands.
Cato: Clove looks away.
"It just is." She mutters.
"Why should I?!" She snaps.
"Because I'm your-"I stop.
"My what?! Boyfriend. No way. Who died and made you that?" She scoffs.
"IT'S ALL YOU CARE ABOUT! POPULARITY! YOU KNOW WHAT?! I WOULDN'T EVEN WANT TO DATE YOU! YOU JUST USE YOUR BOYFRIEND TO MAKE YOURSELF MORE POPULAR! BECAUSE THAT'S ALL YOU CARE ABOUT ISNT IT!?" I yell. She doesn't say anything. Instead she bites her lip and fights back tears. She looks at me again then she runs off, wiping her tears. I regret what I said. Maybe I shouldn't have been so harsh? I hear the door clang and I snap back into reality. I run down the hall and burst out into the open air. Where did Clove go? Where would she go? I knew she wouldn't go somewhere where everyone would see her. My eyes trail to the car park. I walk over to the cars and sure enough, Clove was sitting in a gap between a red and blue car. She was crying into her hands and didn't know I was there.
Clove: I ran out the door and headed to the car park. No one would see me there. I sat in between two cars and cried into my hands. He doesn't understand. I keep thinking to myself. I hug my knees, trying to muffle the escaping sobs. Maybe he's right. Maybe I don't actually like Marvel that much. Maybe I'm just using him.
I hear someone's footsteps and before I could look up, I was pulled into a hug. I didn't hug him back. I just cried onto his sleeve.
"Clove, I'm sorry. I'm so sorry, I-I shouldn't have yelled at you like that. Don't cry." He comforts. I look up at him.
"No, you're right. It's all I care about." I say quietly.
"No, Clove. I didn't mean that."
"No, it's exactly what you meant and that's right. It's all I care about. And if you don't, then let's just stay the way we are. Normal classmates, popular, loser." She stands up, leaving me on the ground looking up at her. "Just remember, nothing happened today." She wipes her face and runs off.
Clove doesn't want to become a loser and Cato doesn't want to be popular.
Who's going to give in..?
What about Glimmer and Cato's relationship?
Next time :)
