I wake up on my couch. Huh? How did I get here? I look over and see Annie asleep in Finnick's arms. Finnick is talking quietly to Peeta. Peeta! I suddenly feel angry. I want to yell at him to leave, but Finnick's voice stops me.
"Kitty Kat! You're awake!" he says. I look at him and give him a small smile, when I realize something.
"Finn, I had an awful dream!" I say starting to cry.
"Katniss," Finnick starts to say, but I cut him off.
"It was P-Prim. She got in a car accident a-and d-d-died," I get out through my sobs.
"Katniss," Finnick says again. Finnick never calls me Katniss unless its a serious matter. So that means- No. No! "Katniss, it's true. She, um, she's gone, Katniss," he says with a sad voice. Finnick never met Prim, but I know they would have loved each other. He would be like her brother too.
Sobs rack my body, and I can't contain them. I put my face in my hands and let the tears fall. Then, I notice, Annie has woken up and is coming over to me, hugging me. Finnick comes too, stretching his long arms around both of us. Peeta just stays in his chair. When they finally let go, I am starting to calm down, but the tears are still streaming heavily down my face. I stand up, a little shaky, and start to walk to my room, when I hear Peeta speak.
"I'm gonna go try and talk to her," he says quietly. I hear his footsteps coming down the hall as I sit on my bed. I put my face in my pillow, when I hear a small knock at my door.
"Go away, Peeta! I don't even want you here! Just leave!" I say, but I want him here more than anything. I may be angry with him, but once I care about someone, I'll care about them forever, even when I really don't want to. I hear the door squeak as it opens.
"You really think I'm just gonna leave?" he asks. He sits next to my troubled self, and rubs circles into my back. "I know you're angry and mad and upset about me right now, but I'm still here for you."
"Yes, I am, so go away!" I say pushing his hand off of me and shoving him off of my bed. "I thought you were gonna be different this time! I thought that you meant it when you said you loved me! But now I know you were just playing me. Get out of my house, Peeta! You are NOT going to stand here in MY room telling me lies! You know I don't mess around with saying love, and you used it as a joke! And I almost thought, for once, that I might actually-" No. I'm not gonna say it. Because if I say it, I'll believe it. And I don't want to believe it.
"Might actually what, Katniss?" Peeta asks. He has an angry tone in his voice, but it's still sweet and soft. He looks so hurt from all of the hateful words I've spoken to him.
"That I might actually love you, you jerk! It may have taken you this long, but you finally stole my heart. Little did I know, that once you stole it, you would break it into a million pieces! Now go away! I hate you!" I get up and try to push him towards the closed door, but he grabs my arms and pulls me to him. He takes my face in his hands and kisses me. I try to stop myself from kissing him back, but I can't. I love this man too much. I finally convince myself to break away and I push him. "Leave," I say in a stern, yet shaky voice. He lowers his head, defeated.
He leaves my room, and I vaguely hear Finnick's voice ask, "Did you even tell her?" Tell me what?
"I was going to, but it doesn't matter anymore. She hates me now. I'll try later. It's getting late anyway, I'm going home," I hear Peeta answer.
About 10 minutes later, Finnick and Annie come to my room and say their goodbyes. I change my clothes, and hop in bed, falling asleep instantly.
----- 2 days later-----
The funeral for Prim is this morning. I flew to Panem yesterday, seeing as that's where the funeral is being held. I am with my mother in the kitchen of my old home, trying to get her to eat something. But, in all honesty, I don't even want to eat either. I just want to curl up in a hole and die. My Primrose, my only reason for living, is gone.
"Come on, mom. We need to leave now," I say quietly, grabbing my purse. We drag ourselves outside and to the car. I end up driving, because I'm not sure if my mother is up for the job. The service is short and when it's over, I take my mother home.
I'm sitting on the couch in the living room, when I hear a knock on the door. I walk over and open the door, and see Peeta. I immediately slam the door shut, but he knocks again.
"Go away!" I yell through the door.
"Katniss, please let me talk to you! It's important!" he yells back.
"Peeta, did it ever occur to you that the reason I'm NOT talking to you, is because I don't WANT to talk to you? What can I do to make you leave me alone?!" I yell through the door again.
"Give me 5 minutes. If you don't like what I have to say, then I will never bother you again. Just 5 minutes. Please," he begs. I stay silent for about a minute before I open the door to let him in.
"Begin," I say, sitting on the couch.
"The other day, I told you I was leaving. And I was trying to tell you why, but you wouldn't ever let me finish. It hurt me to see you so upset. That's why I chose the song I did for the talent show. I figured, if you wouldn't listen to me talk, maybe I could get you to listen if I sang it to you. Katniss, I'm not leaving in the way you think I am," he says.
"How can you leave in any other way? Leaving is leaving, Peeta," I say.
"Just listen, Katniss. I was only leaving to come here to get my stuff. I'm moving in with Finnick. I was excited to tell you, but you got upset right after I said I was leaving, so I never got to tell you why. Do you understand now, Katniss? Are you still mad?" he asks. All I do is grab him by the collar of his shirt and pull him towards me in a kiss. I can't believe I got so upset over that. Why am I so stupid?! Why couldn't I have just let him finish talking in the first place? When we break away, Peeta looks strait into my eyes.
"Stay with me," I whisper.
"Always," he says. I hug him tightly, and he leaves.
I leave the next day to go back to Dublin. Peeta had to stay to pack all of his things. When I get in from the long journey home, I fall in bed and go right to sleep.
A/N: So I'm not sure how well I did on this chapter, but I know y'all were waiting for an update. Sorry if there were any mistakes in this, my computer was being all wacked up, so I did this entire chapter on my iPod. I know it's short, but I didn't know what else to put in it. Forgive me! And if you have any ideas for future chapters, let me know! This is all I know to do, but I wanted to keep it going after the talent show, so yeah. Let me know! special thanks to @02220222anna4 for helping me with this chapter! Thank you!
