For @notanislander why you had to send me that gif….
AU set in Cannon Victory Tour. There aren’t any Hunger Games, only the Panem Games, where Peeta and Katniss meet and fall in love.
WARNING: M for SMUT…unbetae’d all mistakes are mine
The steady beat of the train drove Katniss crazy. They were passing through a storm in a remote area and the train had to slow down. They were on their way to the Capitol. She punched her pillow it wasn’t hard enough. It was too soft. The other pillow was too hard, it wasn’t soft enough. Nothing was good enough.
Katniss hated leaving home, hated having to go on this victory tour. She hated the idea of having to be half of ‘The Star-Crossed Lovers,’ she had to be the sweet dutiful girlfriend of Peeta Mellark as part of the game-winning strategy. A plan he cooked up to get her the prize money for the competition back when they’d been something more. “Stop it Everdeen, don’t do that to yourself,” Katniss murmured to herself.
She slipped from her bed and padded across the floor to the door. She couldn’t sleep, and she hated admitting why. She needed Peeta. No bed, no blanket, or pillow compared to being in his arms. Something she’d been bereft of for months since they’d come home from their win.
Straightening her shoulders she opened the door to her luxury cabin and slipped quietly down the hall toward his room. Her heart pounded in her chest, as she knocked on his door.
“Are you here to finish me off sweetheart?”
