Things had been so weird lately for Sawyer that he just wanted something that felt normal. Something that made him feel like his old self. So after Divinations, one of the few classes he still attended, he went back to his room. Unfortunately, another boy was in there and he hardly felt like dealing with him so he grabbed some things and left.

He was struggling to find some place to be alone, and finally he found himself near the greenhouses. He hadn’t taken a herbology class since it was demanded of him, and much of the area seemed foreign to him now. He usually avoided it, but it was the one quiet space. So he found his way into one. He looked at everything, inspecting it as he walked through. How dumb. He couldn’t understand why anyone would be into plants. They just seemed so…boring.

Except for one plant. Which reminded him why he actually had come out. He found the bottom to a planter and dumped out the dirt. Placing a paper in there he dashed some weed onto it before rolling it up. He was deeply involved in the process and didn’t hear as someone came in. In fact, it took him a good solid few moments before he finally heard them. He whipped around and saw a familiar face.

“Athena Clark.” He muttered with a smirk. She may not be his favorite person, but he had taken to just sounding like an asshole instead of being outright mean. He licked the paper without ever taking his eyes off of her and sealed it shut. “Taking after Mommy now?” Sawyer had been with her long enough he knew what her parents did. Probably more information than he knew about most people. Frankly, he didn’t care, it was just the douchiest way possible for him to ask her what she was doing out there.

This was a blast from the past. It had been some time since he’d last spoken to Athena. He remembered why that was. “I hear you’re dating your brother’s friend. Creepy.” He put the ‘cigarette’ between his lips and lit it. Inhaling deeply. The room immediately obtained a new smell. But mostly he was preoccupying himself because he realized that that little dig revealed that he had been keeping tabs. He had honestly gotten curious when their little run ins got less frequent.

Athena had needed a diversion. Something to distract herself from how frightfully mundane her life had become. Her life had taken a turn for a good which in retrospect was actually quite fantastic. But what she hadn't expected was for her life to become so damn boring that her brother's relationship issues had reached the forefront of her attention. It was funny though, how she always seemed to be more mature than him at times, especially when she was years younger.

Still, it wasn't like she could spend every waking moment with Gavin, making sure he made all the right decisions and little to no wrong ones. Life didn't work that way. So she really did need a distraction. Some sort of something to divert her attention from her brother for at least a few hours. That was all she asked really. So she'd decided to go walking, not really searching for anything particular just needing to get out and get some sort of air in her lungs.

But what she hadn't counted on was noticing Sawyer out of the corner of her eye. Curiosity must have gotten the best of her because before she really knew what she was doing or even where he was going she was off, following him like it had been her goal all along. She really hoped he wasn't heading somewhere super shady or off to meet someone way too pretty to do something that could be considered by some people to be anything but because she really did not need to witness him doing either of those things.

"Sawyer Beckett," she greeted coolly, shutting the door to the greenhouse behind her. "Taking after mommy, really?" She rolled her eyes. "Not unless you and my mother have a special sort of relationship that I have no knowledge of." Which she seriously hoped not, because that would be just way too weird and something she knew that she'd be unable to deal with ever, at all.

She arched a brow at him. "Seems like I'm not the only stalker from the sound of things." She didn't know whether she should be amused or disturbed by the fact that he seemed to be keeping tabs on her. Instead she focused on his 'cigarette', deciding that was worth her attention more than finding answers to questions she wished she'd never ask.

"Care to share?"

Athena had certainly been a milestone in Sawyer’s life. Of what he couldn’t really describe, but something. He had never really been quite as horrible to a girl as he had been with Athena, and his fascination with her never really left. He had only recently given up upon hearing about her little boyfriend, and then with all of this shit with Mercy…He didn’t want to think about that.

Sawyer smiled when she made the comment about he and her Mother, “Oh she didn’t tell you?” Honestly he had only met her once, and that really wasn’t his game, but it was too hard to resist joking about. “Don’t worry though, it’s over now.” He was being an ass. No one brought this side out of him more than Athena. He didn’t know what it was about her. In the same way that Mercy made him stupid, Athena made him mean. Why it was that some girls could matter so little to him and some could strike him at the heart of his being he had no idea.

“So you admit to stalking me?” He asked with a raised brow. He flicked as ash on some poor students plant and watched as it wilted a bit. He smiled. But then his attentions returned to Athena. “I needed something to do with all my free time, and it appears my favorite hobby regarding you stopped once you got into a relationship.” That was not so much a lie. He had fun with Athena, even if it was pathetically destructive. “You know he’s hooked up with dudes yeah?” He had actually found that out on accident, a meer coincidence that a guy he knows who graduated had once dated this gentleman.

When she asked about sharing Sawyer took a good long moment to stare at the object in his hands, twirling it in his fingers before looking at her with a mischievous grin. “Not particularly.” Sawyer was being a smart ass. He had no issue with sharing, honestly this was more on a whim and he figured if left by himself a good portion would go to waste anyway. He may smoke a lot, but even he had his limits. And he only smoked high quality shit, so it went to his head quickly. He took another drag slowly, smiling at Athena the entire time.

Sawyer had complicated Athena's life in ways that she was still recovering from. But their times hadn't been all bad. In fact he'd been a pretty big stepping stone in her life. He'd been one of her first real relationships and they'd had some pretty good times. Most of which were ones she could barely remember but she didn't think that took away from any of it.

Sure they hadn't ended on good terms and sure she sort of hated him now but that didn't mean they couldn't get along now did it?

She rolled her eyes slightly. "Could you please just not go there?", she asked annoyed. "I don't need any more reasons to hate you." Merlin knew she had plenty although they didn't seem to be all that important in the here and now. She really couldn't decide if they ever were important for that matter because sure he was a dick and sure he'd used her but did any of that really take away from the picture as a whole?

"Sure I'll admit to stalking you if you if you admit to actually caring about me." She wasn't sure why she'd said it but a part of her figured it was because it was something he really wouldn't own up to. Her jaw dropped slightly when he admitted to keeping tabs on her but she followed her shock with an amused laugh. "So let me get this straight, I was your favorite hobby and since I stopped fucking you, you decided to keep tabs on me?" She arched a brow at him. "Sawyer Beckett you have reached a new low. And don't you even talk about Seb's sex life because I could honestly care less if he's slept with a centaur, he actually gives a shit about me."

She stalked towards him and snatched the cigarette out of his hands. "Fuck it, I'm making you share, it's the least you could do."

Sawyer was pretty sure he had never had as much fun as he did with Athena. Not even Mercy or Violet could beat her. There were other people who meant more to him, or at least that he had accepted meant more to him, but it was Athena that he always looked forward to. Even though he hated it when she finally left him, he could still admit how much enjoyment he got from her. Good or bad, she kept his attention.

When she rolled her eyes he cocked his head to the side, and smiled. He looked quite mischievous, but after a moment shrugged. “Fine.” He spent a few moments acting like she wasn’t there, or at the very least like she didn’t grab his attention. Then he looked at her again, “When did you become no fun?”

A disgusted look crossed Sawyers face when she told him he had to admit to caring for her if he wanted her to admit to stalking. But the pained look slipped away and he shrugged again, “Then I guess you’re not stalking me.” Sawyer had gone from finding it impossible to admit that people mattered to him, to telling a girl he actually liked her. He was done. At least he thought he was. Sawyer looked at Athena. Had he cared about her? He may have mistreated her, but there was a time when she probably the most impotent person in the world to him. Not in an endearing manner, at least he didn't think so at the time, but important none the less. She rephrased his words, “Exactly.”

He outright laughed when she told him he had reached a new low. “Really? This is my worst?” If making fun of an ex’s boyfriend was low as he got then Sawyer would actually be a pretty decent human being. Suddenly he got an idea and his lips curled into a smile, but when he went to speak he couldn’t. He wanted to remind her that Athena had thought Sawyer cared about her once upon a time. But he didn’t. Instead he distracted himself.

When Athena stole from him, Sawyer reacted immediately. He grabbed at her arm and pulled it back, grabbing his weed with his other hand. But he wasn’t angry, wasn’t being rough. In fact, his was much more playful. He held it high above his head, he smirked at her, “I see you’re still not a very good listener.” He would share, but he could have his fun first.
