Katniss is pretty sure she’s gained 10 pounds since Peeta Mellark’s food truck started showing up outside her office two months ago.
Every day at 12:30 p.m., she’s outside in the parking lot, first in line to get her lunch from him. Smoked turkey on sourdough, pastrami on rye, roasted chicken on French baguette, veggie on ciabatta—she’s tried every sandwich on his menu. It’s the bread that makes each sandwich, really, which he says he bakes at his storefront cafe and bakery downtown.
It’s amazing food, and she likes to support local businesses. That’s why she eats here everyday—it has nothing to do with how attractive Peeta is, or how sweet and funny he is.
They talk every time she’s there, and if it’s not busy, he’ll lean out the window and converse with her until her break is up.
It’s the highlight of her day.
