A Huge thanks to wonderful jamiesommers23 for sharing this amazing idea with me! Keep an eye out for her story Safe and Sound that goes hand in hand with this fanart. I just hope that I could do that justice.
But as I stretch out on the sand I wonder, could it be more? Like a reminder to me that I could still one day have kids with Gale? Well, if that was it, it was a mistake. Because for one thing, that’s never been part of my plan.
And for another, if only one of us can be a parent, anyone can see it should be Peeta.
As I drift off, I try to imagine that world, somewhere in the future, with no Games, no Capitol. A place like the meadow in the song I sang to Rue as she died.
Where Peeta’s child could be safe.
When I wake, I have a brief, delicious feeling of happiness that is somehow connected with Peeta.
