It's dark, finally nighttime. The sea salty air fills my lungs as I sit down on the docks. District Four definitely had its perks, one of them being the ocean.
I lean down, my feet barely touch the surface of the water. I look around. Nobody in sight. I slide off my cut off shorts and tank top, leaving me in my swimsuit. I jump into the warm water.
I swim deep below the surface. The darkness of the ocean consumes me. I wish I could stay under the water, but my lungs cry for oxygen, I resurface. I must've been down there for at least a two minutes.
"You know, we aren't supposed to swim after 7:00" a voice calls out.
I flip my long wet hair back words. I turn and face the docks again. The tan guy that sits before me looks like a god.
"Well I've never been one for rules."
I swim closer to the docks, trying to get closer to this stranger. He's sandy hair moves around with the wind. He's tan glows nicely as the sun sets.
"What's your name?"
I swim close to the dock. Now I could reach out and touch him if I wanted to. Maybe I should.
I reach out my hand for him to shake. He smirks down at me and reaches his hand toward mine. His mistake. As soon our hand make contact, I pull him down will all my might. He falls down into the water.
God she even has a beautiful name!
(Y/n) reaches her hand towards mine, I reach mine out to hers, smirking in the process. Just before our hands touch, I see a hint of mischief in her eyes. I realize I'm too late when I get pulled into the ocean.
I resurface, to hear (Y/n) laughing. It has to be the most beautiful laugh I've ever heard. Her laugh is contagious, it makes me laugh.
Her long hair glides down her back. She looks stunning. The sun is just behind her head. She looks as if she were a model.
"I can't believe you did that." He laughs and shakes his head.
"What? You surprised that I would pull The Finnick Odair into the ocean?" I laugh.
"Ohh so you do know who I am?" Finnick asks.
"Well duh!" I laugh and float around in the water.
"Well, it's just most girls freak out and immediately start hitting on me."
"Well I'm not most girls."
I dive back down under the water before he can respond. I swim deeper towards the coral reef. Fish swim all around me. Suddenly, the scatter. A dark shadow covers over me. I turn to look at whatever is blocking the sun from reaching me.
I smile up at him and continue to swim deep below the surface. Finnick grabs my hand to grab my attention. He gestures up the the surface. I shake my head no. I can still swim for a while before I run out of oxygen.
Finnick and I don't let go of each other's hand. We swim closer to the reef. The fish come out again and surround us with all of their different colors. I smile at the sight.
After a few more minutes both of our lungs are aching for air. We swim up the surface. Our hands never separating.
"That was amazing" Finnick pants. "I've never done that before."
"What swim?" I ask with a laugh.
Finnick smiles, "No, gone down to the reef. It was a whole different world down there. It was beautiful.... You're beautiful"
I look up to him when he says the last part. My mouth parts slightly in shock. Finnick takes this opportunity and connects our lips. I open my mouth wider to deepen the kiss, Finnick does the same. I smile into the kiss before I pull away.
"Wait, what was that?" I ask.
"(Y/n) I want to be a part of your world. I know that we've only been talking for a short time but I feel like I've known you for my whole life." Finnick stops to think for a second.
"After I won the games, I never thought that I could be happy with someone again. I never thought someone could like me for me, not for what I look like. Honestly (Y/n) your different"
I smile to Finnick. He raises his eyebrows, hoping for a good answer. There are now words good enough to comprehend how I feel about what he says. Instead I just kiss him again. Words aren't good enough. I feel Finnick smiling, I am too.
"You really aren't most girls are you?" Finnicks says after we pull away.
"Nope" I peck him on the lips again and pull myself onto the dock. Finnick does the same.
"This is where our story starts huh?" I ask.
"What do you mean?" Finnick laughs.
"You know, this is how it all starts for us. This is the beginning. I just wanna remember that right now"
Finnick wraps his arm around my shoulders.
"This is the start of something new." Finnick agrees.
