One Little Kiss (Chapter 8)

Author’s Note:

Ahhh, hectic life! I was barely near a computer lately and I’m so sorry for the long wait. BUT I feel like this chapter was worth the wait. Hopefully I didn’t disappoint anyone :) One of the events in this chapter actually happened in real life, do you guys know what it is??

I love all your comments! Happy reading.

“Cue the rain.”

I stood behind Gary while I watched intently at the monitor before him. We were beginning to film our first scene of the movie; the bread scene. That is the part in the movie where Peeta is getting scolded by his mother because he burnt a batch of bread. When he goes to throw the bread away he sees me, basically on deaths door, and throws me a loaf. The producers chose to shoot this scene in two parts. The first one being focused on Josh, then they would film my reactions and mix them together for the final product. They had a machine set up to let out a downpour of rain over the set.

“Now remember, Josh,” Gary called over the drumming of water droplets. “Lots of emotion.”

Josh turned his thumbs up in the air, “Got it.”

My lips unconsciously curved into a smile. Watching him close up on the monitor as Peeta and also looking around at all the filming equipment, made this finally seem real. I could feel the excitement bubble up inside of me as I thought ahead to what the finished movie would be like. Seeing Josh on screen was the first time I’ve seen him yet today. We were both taken from our rooms to our separate trailers on set where we had our hair, makeup, and wardrobe put on. From what I could see, Josh was wearing a white t-shirt with an apron tied around his waist. He had flour covering his hands and forearms while his hair was all messy. I had on old torn clothes with an oversized sweater covering me. My hair was in the famous Katniss braids, which were soon about to get soaked when I started filming. It always seemed like dramatic scenes like this always happened in the rain.

“Take one. Action”, a man said closing down on the Clapper in front of the camera.

Josh stood on the front steps of an old abandoned brick building that some of the workers added a bakery sign to. A woman that was playing Peeta’s mother walked out of the doors and slapped Josh on the side of the head. I covered my mouth with my hand and silently giggled, I remembered back to a few nights ago when they were rehearsing that. By the looks of it they weren’t going to have to film this scene twice, everything was going as imagined. Josh threw the bread into the pen where the pigs were held and looked out into the distance where he was supposed to be seeing me. His expressions were spot on, and at end the scene he threw the bread down onto the muddy ground.

“And cut!” The Clapper shut down again.

“Great job, Josh!” Gary congratulated while shutting off the monitor.

They moved their equipment a little bit to the left, in front of the tree that I’d be sitting underneath.

“Now Jen, all you have to do is look off into that direction like you’re questioning why this boy is saving your life.”

I nodded and stepped out from behind the cameras to where the ‘rain’ was falling. I was immediately soaked to the bone which added to the affect that I’ve been sitting outside for a while.

I heard him call to quiet down on the set, followed by “action.” I began by leaning back against the tree like it was the only thing keeping me in a sitting position. I acted as if something caught my eye, and I looked into the direction that Gary pointed to. I narrowed my eyes as though I was curiously watching someone. I concentrated on really feeling starving, and that what I was seeing was about to save my life. It wasn’t long until I heard Gary declare “cut.”

“Perfect! Wonderful beginning to the filming,” Gary said.

Josh and the rest of the cast who were watching smiled as I walked towards them. I reached for the elastic in my braid and took it out, twisted my hair to squeeze the water out.

Gary chuckled, “Now you two go get dried off and we’ll let you know when we need you again.”

I looked at Josh who nodded his head towards my trailer and we walked there together.

Once inside I began to search for dry clothes. “Is something wrong with your trailer?” I asked.

“It’s pretty messy, I figured yours was nice and clean.” He threw the towel that he dried his hair in onto the floor.

I glared at him until he picked it up. “Doesn’t surprise me.”

I opened one of the small dresser drawers and grabbed a clean pair of jeans and a tank top. I’m glad when we first arrived on set I brought some clothes just in case I would need them.

“Hey Jen, do I have a sweater in here?” Josh questioned.

I scanned the room. There was more than likely one in here; I would always steal them because in my opinion guy’s hoodies are so much more comfortable than girls.

“Here’s one,” I tossed it across the room to him.

Josh tugged at the bottom of his t-shirt that was plastered to his body from the water. I could see the outline of a six pack through the material and secretively watched as it was pulled up over his head. It’s been a long time since I would have seen Josh shirtless. It would’ve only been when we would go swimming and in the past couple years there had been no time for that. I felt my cheeks go red as I looked away from his newly toned body and hurried into the bathroom to change.

When I finished, I came out to find Josh lying on the couch with the TV remote in his hands. I walked over and planned to sit on his legs if he didn’t make room. He kept his attention focused on the screen and pulled his knees in towards him. I took a seat and Josh’s legs outstretched again over my own.

“These TVs never get any damn channels!” Josh said ferociously pressing buttons.

He finally came to a stop on a wildlife documentary about crocodiles.

I made a noise in my throat. “Look at them, they’re so ugly.” The show zoomed in close to the crocodile.

“It’s skin looks like an Avatar,” Josh pointed out.

I cocked my head to the side and looked closer. He was right; it did look like Avatar skin. “Wouldn’t it be so cool to be an Avatar?” I beamed.

Josh sprung up into a sitting position. “Yes!” His voice increased its volume.

I folded my arms over my chest. “It’s no fair!”

Josh clasped his hands to the side of his head. “Pandora, Jenn! Pan freakin’ dora! Could you imagine?!”

“It’s like mind blowing!” I shrieked.

We locked eyes and both let out a yell.

“IT’S NO FAIR!” Josh protested.

We were both screaming at this point. “THERE HAS TO BE A WAY!”

“THIS IS SO UPSETTING!” He pouted.

“I WANT TO BE AN—“

“AVATARRR!” We both cried at the top of our lungs.

This was normal for us. We both are crazy, and when we get worked up about something we go completely insane. We barely noticed the trailer door that flew open, until Liam came charging through.

“Are you guys alright?!” His voice was full of panic.

We covered our faces and groaned.

“We can’t be Avatar’s,” I mumbled sadly into my hands.

“Wait,” Liam said catching his breath. “All the screaming was about Avatar?”

“Yes! It’s so depressing. No matter how hard we try it can never happen.” Josh sighed.

Liam let out a breath that was a mixture of relief and frustration. “My God you guys. I came running because I thought someone was getting brutally attacked or something. Scared me to death.” He shook his head laughing and turned to leave the trailer.

“Wait a second, Liam. Can I talk to you for a minute?” Josh’s face went serious all of a sudden.

He gave him a short-sided glance. “Yeah sure, I’m just heading over to my trailer if you want to come.”

Josh got up and followed Liam out the door while throwing me a “see ya later” as he left. A part of me wondered what Josh needed to talk to Liam about, but it was probably nothing important. I groaned when I looked around at the mess that was already on my floor.

“Boys,” I sighed to myself.

When I picked up some of Josh’s belongings off the floor I noticed his cellphone in the pile.

He probably needs this.

I grabbed the phone and made my way across the set to Liam’s trailer. I froze to a stop when I heard them talking from an open window.

“When did you realize how you felt?” Josh asked Liam.

“When I first realized I loved her? I don’t really know, I honestly just think I woke up one day with whole new feelings.”

They must have been talking about Liam’s long-time girlfriend Miley Cyrus, but why was Josh asking him about his relationship?

I heard Josh deeply sigh.

“Are you telling me that you think you’re falling for—“

Before I could hear what Liam was about to say, a sneeze erupted from my nose and the door swung open.

“Hi,” Liam seemed shocked.

“Jen,” Josh poked his head from behind Liam. “How long have you been standing there?”

“Just got here,” I lied. “Here, you forgot your phone in my trailer.”

“Oh, uh, thanks,” he stammered.

There was something definitely going on here. He was looking down at the floor as he quickly snatched the phone out of my hand. He cleared his throat and seemed to shake whatever was bothering off of his mind.

“Well I should go check to see if Gary needs me,” he said running a hand through his blonde hair.

“I’ll come too,” I replied.

The two boys exchanged looks and Josh waved his arm in front of me.

“Beast before beauty,” he smirked as I walked out the door.

“I know you are, but what am I?” I said in a childish voice.

He nudged my arm with his as we walked, “Crazy, that’s what you are.”

I held back a laugh, “I know you are, but—“

I quickly found myself pinned up against nearest tree with Josh’s arms on both sides of me, and his body standing over mine.

“Don’t say it,” he warned.

“Or what?” I teased.

“Come Jen, I know your weakness.”

I scowled at him, “You wouldn’t.”

“Watch me.” His hands went down to my ribs and began to swiftly tickle them.

“Stop,” I breathed between giggles.

He shook his head no and continued to tickle me all over. With a quick movement of my foot I kicked out, causing him to lose balance and catch the tree with his hands, trapping me between them once again.

His face was expressionless as he looked into my eyes, with his arms still pinning me to the tree. I never realized before how close we were. Our chests were touching and there were only inches between our faces. I could feel my chest tighten up and my heart rate speed up. What was wrong with me? I nervously chewed on my bottom lip which made Josh’s gaze break away from my eyes and skim over my lips, then looking back up at me. I wanted to speak, but as much as I tried no sound came out of my mouth. We stood silent, reading each other’s faces intently. Was he about to—

“Josh!” A producer yelled through the trees.

He sighed and dropped his hands from the trees. “Coming!”

I stood frozen against the tree as if his body was still holding me there.

“You coming?” He asked.

I breathed in a shaky breath, “I-I’ll be there in a second.”

Josh shoved his hands in his pockets and disappeared out of sight.


My legs suddenly felt week and I slid down the trunk of the tree. It didn’t take me long to realize what was happening a moment ago. My lips, my eyes; Josh was about to kiss me.

One Little Kiss

Author’s Note: I swear if I didn’t have loyal readers like you guys, I would probably never update. I’m trying my best to whip up new chapters for you guys, but I’m moving back to school in a month so with that and going on vacations with friends it’s hard to just sit and write. BUT because of all of you I force myself to because you’re all awesome and I don’t want to leave anyone hangin’! So here you go! And for those who think the FaceBook group is a good idea, I made an account under the name ‘Alexis Rain’ so if you want then add me and I’ll make a group for this story.

Chapter 7

My eyes couldn’t fight to stay open any longer, so I let them close slowly. I heard the heavy thumping of my heart in my chest, filling my quiet hotel room. Or was it the thumping in my legs I heard? Or my arms? Or my feet? I swear that every part of my body was throbbing in pain. It was just a week ago when our plane landed in North Carolina and they wasted no time with getting us into our training routines. I breathed a sigh of relief knowing that the intense workouts were all over.

You know how if you go swimming all day, that when you close your eyes it feels like you’re still in the water? Well right now it feels like I’m shooting a bow and arrow, weird I know. My thoughts were interrupted when I heard the door to my hotel room open. As much as I wanted to look who it was, my body refused to listen and kept my eyelids glued shut. I heard a muffled groan as they drew closer. Whoever the groan belonged to was literally dragging their feet towards me. I peeked out of one eye just to make sure the Zombie Apocalypse hadn’t made its way into my room. I looked just in time to see a body crash down onto the foot of my bed, face first.

“Jenniferrrr.”

My cheek muscles even seemed to hurt when I smiled. “Joshhhh,” I whined back.

“I can’t feel my arms,” he mumbled into my comforter.

“Lifting too many sacks of flour, baker boy?”

“I have a new found appreciation for people who work in a bakery.” Josh pushed his face from the blankets and rolled over with a grunt.

I tossed him one of the extra pillows by my head, which I overshot and it landed on the floor next to him.

“Nice catch,” I said sarcastically.

“I couldn’t force myself to reach up and catch it.” He turned his head towards me and stuck out his bottom lip. Josh was the master of the puppy dog pout.

“Drama queen,” I scoffed, tossing him another pillow.

I lay back once again and closed my eyes. It was only 5 o’clock in the evening, so I couldn’t go to bed yet, although I wished I could. I heard the soft, steady breathing of Josh at the end of the bed and I knew he fell asleep. I guess a little nap could never hurt, I thought.

_________________________________________

“Wake up, wake up, wake up!”

Was I dreaming about being in Australia right now? I could’ve sworn I heard an Australian accen—

“Josh! Jennifer! Wake up!”

My eyes snapped open to the familiar voice of my Australian co-star, Liam Hemsworth. He’s been here since the first day of training as well, and the three of us have gotten pretty close. Josh knew Liam before he was casted the role of Gale, my best friend in the books. Ironic, isn’t it.

“Liam? How did you get in my room?” I asked confused. Now that I think of it, how did Josh get in here too?

He nodded towards the door, “You left it unlocked. Not a smart idea by the way. If it was Woody who came to get you, he would’ve dumped a bucket of water over your heads.”

“Woody’s here?” Josh perked up. That’s someone who Josh has been dying to meet since we’ve landed.

“Yeah, that’s what I came to tell you. Everyone else has arrived, including the make-up artists,” he smirked while rubbing his hair.

So tonight was the night. The three of us were getting our hair dyed to match our characters. Liam and I are going from blonde to brown, and Josh is going from brown to blonde.

“I’m going to look so weird as a blonde,” Josh pointed out.

I crawled over to where he was now sitting up on the bed. I sat up on my knees behind him and rested my chin on the top on his head, letting my long hair cover his head. Josh reached up and started to run his fingers through it.

“How do I look?” He questioned in a girly voice.

Liam snorted a laugh. “Is your character’s name Peeta, or Patricia?”

“It has to be a name of bread,” I reminded him.

“Pancake,” Liam grinned.

Josh dramatically threw one section of my hair over his shoulder. “You’re all just jealous,” he said still talking in his girl voice.

We broke into a fit of laughter before we caught our breaths and followed Liam to a different room in the hotel. We walked through doors that lead to a suite, which some of the staff and producers were all sharing together. Inside were members of the cast we had already met at training, such as some of the actors playing the Tributes like Alexander Ludwig who’s playing Cato, and Isabelle Fuhrman who’s going to be Clove. The others we hadn’t met were in the small kitchen, talking to Gary. Josh and I walked towards them as Liam joined in a conversation with Alex.

“Ah, there they are.” Gary said smiling.

He turned to his left and extended his arm, “Josh, Jennifer, this is Woody Harrelson, Elizabeth Banks, and Lenny Kravitz.”

“Hello,” I said, taking turns with Josh to shake their hands.

“I heard we were having a hair party tonight.” Elizabeth enthused.

“Wait until they see your wig,” Lenny teased.

Woody took a sip of the drink he had in hand. Yes, he was going to be the perfect Haymitch. “So, I’m curious. Are you really best friends?” A suspicious little half-smile curved his lips.

“Of course they are,” Elizabeth said.

“Just best friends?” He asked with his eyebrows arched.

I felt heat rush to my cheeks. Was asking if we were more than friends? I looked down at fumbled with my fingers. Why would he think that? I’ve never seen Josh as anything but a best friend. But maybe…..my thoughts trailed off into a different direction before I quickly snapped myself out of it.

Josh coughed out a laugh that sounded a bit strained, “Yes.”

I looked at him from the corner of my eye and watched him unconsciously scratch the back of his head, something that he does when he’s nervous. But why was he nervous?

“It’s time,” a female voice said dragging me out of my own thoughts.

While we were busy talking, our make-up artists set up the hair dying station in the bathroom. The bathroom was quite large so they had set up the dye on the counter and placed a chair in the middle of the room. Liam, Josh, and I trailed behind them and sat on the edge of the bathtub, me being squished in the middle of the two.

“Okay, so we’ll do one at a time. Josh, you’re first.” The woman gestured to the chair.

“Blondes have more fun,” Liam teased as Josh took a seat.

“We’ll see about that,” he responded.

I watched the bleach cover his dark brown hair, and his eyebrows too. He gave a nervous grin when his entire head was covered in dye, and switched places with Liam who was next. I studied his appearance and wondered what the result would look like. As I focused on his face, Woody’s question popped back in my head. I wonder who else had wondered that too? Was I that oblivious to how Josh and I act together? Do we act like a couple? So many questions were rushing through my mind all at once. Josh took notice to my staring and gave me a questioning look.

“I’m just trying to picture you as a blonde,” I said with half the truth.

He looked at his watch, “In an hour you won’t have to picture it anymore.”

_________________________________________________________________________

“Is everybody ready?” Gary called into the suite.

Everyone gathered around the bathroom, and it was time to wash the dye out to reveal our new look. We were going to do it in the same order the dye was put on, so Josh crouched down and turned on the taps in the bathtub and stuck his head underneath it. He stood up and gave his head a little shake, sending drops of water in every direction.

“And Peeta is born!” Alexander spoke first and everyone cheered.

Liam was now bent down under the tap, while Josh came and stood beside me after looking at his appearance in the mirror.

“What do you think?” He whispered.

I pursed my lips as I took in his whole appearance. “Honestly, I wouldn’t stick with it as a permanent look, but you make the perfect Peeta.” I said smiling.

When Liam finished everyone cheered as well, giving their comments about his new look. Now it was my turn. I stuck my head under the warm water, the dye washed off in a dark brown waterfall off my head. I dried off the access water that was pooling at the bottom of my hair with a towel and turned to face everyone.

“I love it!” Elizabeth squealed.

“It really suits you, Jennifer.” Lenny said.

I listened to the rest of the opinions before the crowd gathered back into the living room, while others filed off to bed.

I looked into the mirror. It was all becoming real, I wasn’t looking into the eyes of Jennifer Lawrence, I was looking into the eyes of Katniss Everdeen.

The rest of the cast that were straggling around the suite also left for the night. We all needed to get a good night’s sleep for filming early tomorrow. Josh and I said our goodbyes and headed back to our rooms. We headed in the same direction because his was just a couple doors down from mine. He walked with his hands in his pockets like he usually does, reminding me that he was still the same old Josh even with his new appearance. When we got to my door he stopped too as I searched for my keys.

“Tomorrow’s the big day,” he said.

I found my key and turned the door knob.

I rested against the door frame, “It doesn’t seem real yet.”

Josh nodded,” I know.”

I chewed on my lip, unsure of what to say next. “Well looks like I should get to bed.”

“I should probably get some sleep too.”

I gave him a smile before I turned and walked into my room. Something caught the door before it shut all the way. It was Josh’s hand.

He looked like he was about to speak, but stopped himself.

“What?”

He shook his head, “Nothing. Goodnight, Katniss,” Josh said with a smirk.

“Goodnight, Peeta.”

My smile faded away as I shut the door. Was I nervous for filming? What else could explain these butterflies in my stomach?

“Oh, uh, thanks,” he stammered.

There was something definitely going on here. He was looking down at the floor as he quickly snatched the phone out of my hand. He cleared his throat and seemed to shake whatever was bothering off of his mind.

“Well I should go check to see if Gary needs me,” he said running a hand through his blonde hair.

“I’ll come too,” I replied.

The two boys exchanged looks and Josh waved his arm in front of me.

“Beast before beauty,” he smirked as I walked out the door.

“I know you are, but what am I?” I said in a childish voice.

He nudged my arm with his as we walked, “Crazy, that’s what you are.”

I held back a laugh, “I know you are, but—“

I quickly found myself pinned up against nearest tree with Josh’s arms on both sides of me, and his body standing over mine.

“Don’t say it,” he warned.

“Or what?” I teased.

“Come Jen, I know your weakness.”

I scowled at him, “You wouldn’t.”

“Watch me.” His hands went down to my ribs and began to swiftly tickle them.

“Stop,” I breathed between giggles.

He shook his head no and continued to tickle me all over. With a quick movement of my foot I kicked out, causing him to lose balance and catch the tree with his hands, trapping me between them once again.

His face was expressionless as he looked into my eyes, with his arms still pinning me to the tree. I never realized before how close we were. Our chests were touching and there were only inches between our faces. I could feel my chest tighten up and my heart rate speed up. What was wrong with me? I nervously chewed on my bottom lip which made Josh’s gaze break away from my eyes and skim over my lips, then looking back up at me. I wanted to speak, but as much as I tried no sound came out of my mouth. We stood silent, reading each other’s faces intently. Was he about to—

“Josh!” A producer yelled through the trees.

He sighed and dropped his hands from the trees. “Coming!”

I stood frozen against the tree as if his body was still holding me there.

“You coming?” He asked.

I breathed in a shaky breath, “I-I’ll be there in a second.”

Josh shoved his hands in his pockets and disappeared out of sight.


My legs suddenly felt week and I slid down the trunk of the tree. It didn’t take me long to realize what was happening a moment ago. My lips, my eyes; Josh was about to kiss me.

One Little Kiss

Author’s Note: I swear if I didn’t have loyal readers like you guys, I would probably never update. I’m trying my best to whip up new chapters for you guys, but I’m moving back to school in a month so with that and going on vacations with friends it’s hard to just sit and write. BUT because of all of you I force myself to because you’re all awesome and I don’t want to leave anyone hangin’! So here you go! And for those who think the FaceBook group is a good idea, I made an account under the name ‘Alexis Rain’ so if you want then add me and I’ll make a group for this story.

Chapter 7

My eyes couldn’t fight to stay open any longer, so I let them close slowly. I heard the heavy thumping of my heart in my chest, filling my quiet hotel room. Or was it the thumping in my legs I heard? Or my arms? Or my feet? I swear that every part of my body was throbbing in pain. It was just a week ago when our plane landed in North Carolina and they wasted no time with getting us into our training routines. I breathed a sigh of relief knowing that the intense workouts were all over.

You know how if you go swimming all day, that when you close your eyes it feels like you’re still in the water? Well right now it feels like I’m shooting a bow and arrow, weird I know. My thoughts were interrupted when I heard the door to my hotel room open. As much as I wanted to look who it was, my body refused to listen and kept my eyelids glued shut. I heard a muffled groan as they drew closer. Whoever the groan belonged to was literally dragging their feet towards me. I peeked out of one eye just to make sure the Zombie Apocalypse hadn’t made its way into my room. I looked just in time to see a body crash down onto the foot of my bed, face first.

“Jenniferrrr.”

My cheek muscles even seemed to hurt when I smiled. “Joshhhh,” I whined back.

“I can’t feel my arms,” he mumbled into my comforter.

“Lifting too many sacks of flour, baker boy?”

“I have a new found appreciation for people who work in a bakery.” Josh pushed his face from the blankets and rolled over with a grunt.

I tossed him one of the extra pillows by my head, which I overshot and it landed on the floor next to him.

“Nice catch,” I said sarcastically.

“I couldn’t force myself to reach up and catch it.” He turned his head towards me and stuck out his bottom lip. Josh was the master of the puppy dog pout.

“Drama queen,” I scoffed, tossing him another pillow.

I lay back once again and closed my eyes. It was only 5 o’clock in the evening, so I couldn’t go to bed yet, although I wished I could. I heard the soft, steady breathing of Josh at the end of the bed and I knew he fell asleep. I guess a little nap could never hurt, I thought.

_________________________________________

“Wake up, wake up, wake up!”

Was I dreaming about being in Australia right now? I could’ve sworn I heard an Australian accen—

“Josh! Jennifer! Wake up!”

My eyes snapped open to the familiar voice of my Australian co-star, Liam Hemsworth. He’s been here since the first day of training as well, and the three of us have gotten pretty close. Josh knew Liam before he was casted the role of Gale, my best friend in the books. Ironic, isn’t it.

“Liam? How did you get in my room?” I asked confused. Now that I think of it, how did Josh get in here too?

He nodded towards the door, “You left it unlocked. Not a smart idea by the way. If it was Woody who came to get you, he would’ve dumped a bucket of water over your heads.”

“Woody’s here?” Josh perked up. That’s someone who Josh has been dying to meet since we’ve landed.

“Yeah, that’s what I came to tell you. Everyone else has arrived, including the make-up artists,” he smirked while rubbing his hair.

So tonight was the night. The three of us were getting our hair dyed to match our characters. Liam and I are going from blonde to brown, and Josh is going from brown to blonde.

“I’m going to look so weird as a blonde,” Josh pointed out.

I crawled over to where he was now sitting up on the bed. I sat up on my knees behind him and rested my chin on the top on his head, letting my long hair cover his head. Josh reached up and started to run his fingers through it.

“How do I look?” He questioned in a girly voice.

Liam snorted a laugh. “Is your character’s name Peeta, or Patricia?”

“It has to be a name of bread,” I reminded him.

“Pancake,” Liam grinned.

Josh dramatically threw one section of my hair over his shoulder. “You’re all just jealous,” he said still talking in his girl voice.

We broke into a fit of laughter before we caught our breaths and followed Liam to a different room in the hotel. We walked through doors that lead to a suite, which some of the staff and producers were all sharing together. Inside were members of the cast we had already met at training, such as some of the actors playing the Tributes like Alexander Ludwig who’s playing Cato, and Isabelle Fuhrman who’s going to be Clove. The others we hadn’t met were in the small kitchen, talking to Gary. Josh and I walked towards them as Liam joined in a conversation with Alex.

“Ah, there they are.” Gary said smiling.

He turned to his left and extended his arm, “Josh, Jennifer, this is Woody Harrelson, Elizabeth Banks, and Lenny Kravitz.”

“Hello,” I said, taking turns with Josh to shake their hands.

“I heard we were having a hair party tonight.” Elizabeth enthused.

“Wait until they see your wig,” Lenny teased.

Woody took a sip of the drink he had in hand. Yes, he was going to be the perfect Haymitch. “So, I’m curious. Are you really best friends?” A suspicious little half-smile curved his lips.

“Of course they are,” Elizabeth said.

“Just best friends?” He asked with his eyebrows arched.

I felt heat rush to my cheeks. Was asking if we were more than friends? I looked down at fumbled with my fingers. Why would he think that? I’ve never seen Josh as anything but a best friend. But maybe…..my thoughts trailed off into a different direction before I quickly snapped myself out of it.

Josh coughed out a laugh that sounded a bit strained, “Yes.”

I looked at him from the corner of my eye and watched him unconsciously scratch the back of his head, something that he does when he’s nervous. But why was he nervous?

“It’s time,” a female voice said dragging me out of my own thoughts.

While we were busy talking, our make-up artists set up the hair dying station in the bathroom. The bathroom was quite large so they had set up the dye on the counter and placed a chair in the middle of the room. Liam, Josh, and I trailed behind them and sat on the edge of the bathtub, me being squished in the middle of the two.

“Okay, so we’ll do one at a time. Josh, you’re first.” The woman gestured to the chair.

“Blondes have more fun,” Liam teased as Josh took a seat.

“We’ll see about that,” he responded.

I watched the bleach cover his dark brown hair, and his eyebrows too. He gave a nervous grin when his entire head was covered in dye, and switched places with Liam who was next. I studied his appearance and wondered what the result would look like. As I focused on his face, Woody’s question popped back in my head. I wonder who else had wondered that too? Was I that oblivious to how Josh and I act together? Do we act like a couple? So many questions were rushing through my mind all at once. Josh took notice to my staring and gave me a questioning look.

“I’m just trying to picture you as a blonde,” I said with half the truth.

He looked at his watch, “In an hour you won’t have to picture it anymore.”

_________________________________________________________________________

“Is everybody ready?” Gary called into the suite.

Everyone gathered around the bathroom, and it was time to wash the dye out to reveal our new look. We were going to do it in the same order the dye was put on, so Josh crouched down and turned on the taps in the bathtub and stuck his head underneath it. He stood up and gave his head a little shake, sending drops of water in every direction.

“And Peeta is born!” Alexander spoke first and everyone cheered.

Liam was now bent down under the tap, while Josh came and stood beside me after looking at his appearance in the mirror.

“What do you think?” He whispered.

I pursed my lips as I took in his whole appearance. “Honestly, I wouldn’t stick with it as a permanent look, but you make the perfect Peeta.” I said smiling.

When Liam finished everyone cheered as well, giving their comments about his new look. Now it was my turn. I stuck my head under the warm water, the dye washed off in a dark brown waterfall off my head. I dried off the access water that was pooling at the bottom of my hair with a towel and turned to face everyone.

“I love it!” Elizabeth squealed.

“It really suits you, Jennifer.” Lenny said.

I listened to the rest of the opinions before the crowd gathered back into the living room, while others filed off to bed.

I looked into the mirror. It was all becoming real, I wasn’t looking into the eyes of Jennifer Lawrence, I was looking into the eyes of Katniss Everdeen.

The rest of the cast that were straggling around the suite also left for the night. We all needed to get a good night’s sleep for filming early tomorrow. Josh and I said our goodbyes and headed back to our rooms. We headed in the same direction because his was just a couple doors down from mine. He walked with his hands in his pockets like he usually does, reminding me that he was still the same old Josh even with his new appearance. When we got to my door he stopped too as I searched for my keys.

“Tomorrow’s the big day,” he said.

I found my key and turned the door knob.

I rested against the door frame, “It doesn’t seem real yet.”

Josh nodded,” I know.”

I chewed on my lip, unsure of what to say next. “Well looks like I should get to bed.”

“I should probably get some sleep too.”

I gave him a smile before I turned and walked into my room. Something caught the door before it shut all the way. It was Josh’s hand.

He looked like he was about to speak, but stopped himself.

“What?”

He shook his head, “Nothing. Goodnight, Katniss,” Josh said with a smirk.

“Goodnight, Peeta.”

My smile faded away as I shut the door. Was I nervous for filming? What else could explain these butterflies in my stomach?
