How It Could Have Been ~ The-Mockingjay-xx
After the war things are never the same between Katniss and Peeta, he is not the same. Katniss forgives Gale for the bombings knowing that he would never intend to kill Prim after years of looking out for her. After losing hope of Peeta ever returning to her the way he was, Katniss falls back in love with Gale, her best friend and hunting partner, and is reminded of her life before the Games, where she was happy and free. She tries to fix herself, the broken girl on fire, but can she ever erase her scars and learn to love Gale the same way she used to do?
