As promised for Friday…smut! And fluff. ;-) We’re in the home stretch on this one, so enjoy! Smooches, @peetabreadgirl!
My friends are meddling little shits.
After I got back from the sheriff’s office, they asked all kinds of probing questions about what I did while I was there. They were both disappointed when I told them that Peeta neither handcuffed me nor had his way with me on top of his desk.
“Then what good is it dating a sheriff?” Johanna had asked in exasperation. Hearing words put to it scared the snot out of me and I quickly hid myself in my room shortly after, claiming that I needed to call and check on Daily Fix. Which was true. I’ve been neglecting my business.
Once that was done, I sucked it up and called my investors to rearrange our next meeting, since I have no idea how much longer I’ll be here in Twelve Willows. I guess since I’m technically not a suspect anymore, I could leave any time, but I don’t want to leave Madge when all of this is still unresolved.
That thought led to thinking about how I’m supposed to leave here after what’s happened with Peeta. I’m no good with labels and this one eludes me worse than most. Whatever it is between us, I can’t stay here indefinitely. We’re not dating. We can’t be dating. My life is in Philadelphia. Daily Fix is in Philadelphia. My friends, other than Madge, are in Philadelphia. Which makes Peeta and I temporary.
