Wanna get right into this so.....
Enjoy chapter 9!!
Annabeth and I went to bed a bit after dinner. We were tired and there wasn't much else to do. When I woke up, she was staring at me. "You drool when you sleep," she said with a smile. I smiled remembering the first time we met when that was the first thing she said to me. "You know you love me," I teased draping my arm around her waist. "Yeah, I do," she said in a more serious tone than the one she had just used. I leaned in and kissed her lightly on the nose. I looked into her beautiful grey eyes. "I love you too," I said. We kissed softly and then stared at each other for a moment. Her blonde curls hung loose around her shoulders. She was so beautiful. And she was all mine. I hugged her tight to my chest. "What's on the agenda today," I asked her. "I was hoping we could take Katniss and Peeta down to the training area today," she said. "Ok. We'll show them a few tricks," I said. She smiled and we kissed again. We've been doing a lot of that lately.
At breakfast, we asked Haymitch if we could keep them after training to show them a few things. He said after all the other tributes trained we could go down there for an hour or two. I could tell Katniss was tired. Or that she had been up thinking. She kept her head down and didn't eat as much as she normally would. Finally, she looked up and noticed me watching her. I motioned to the hall hoping she would get what I meant. She cleaned her mouth with a napkin. "I'm done," she said and walked into the hall. I took a sip of water. "I have to pee," I announced. I walked into the hall.
Katniss was standing at the other end. "Tired much," I asked. "Nightmares," she said. "Demigods tend to have those," I told her. "I just want to make sure Prim is okay," she said. "I can check," I told her. "You're going to go all the way back to District Twelve to check on my sister," she asked raising her eyebrow. "You can say hi to her, too," I said. She looked dubious. "I'll talk to Grover tonight and you can talk to Prim tomorrow," I said. "That sounds good," Katniss said nodding. She walked into her room. I went into the bathroom and flushed the toilet for good measure. I walked back into the dining room and finished the meal with the rest of them.
Katniss and Peeta went down for training a little bit later. Annabeth was going through the drawers looking for something to wear. I could see her camp necklace dangling from her neck. I grabbed a drachma from the stand and changed the image on the screen. "O Iris, goddess of the rainbow, accept my offering," I said and threw the drachma into the screen. Annabeth straightened up and joined. The screen changed and they saw Grover pacing back and froth muttering to himself. "Grover!" I yelled so he would hear me. "Percy! Annabeth! Oh my gods. Are you guys ok?" he asked. "We're fine," Annabeth assured him. "Listen, can you make sure Prim is able to talk tomorrow? For Katniss," I told him. "Yeah but listen I heard your plan. Please promise you'll be careful," he said. "We promise," Annabeth said. With that we said our goodbyes and hung up. We got changed and walked out of the room to head down.
Next chapter will be training then the day of and the interviews. Be sure to review! Until the next.
