The Registry (Part 2)
Prompt: The Eavesdropper (Prompt 12)
A/N: Thanks for the positive feedback from Part 1! I loved the reblogged notes. tags, and especially that great wedding registry story from @katamount! Many hugs to @papofglencoe for editing and reminding me that details do matter, damn it!
A week passes and Katniss has become creative in finding ways to avoid her handsome, blue-eyed neighbor. As much as she would like to get to know him, the awkwardness of the situation is too much for her to bear. So she’s hidden in the elevator, popped in on Madge unannounced, tied her shoes behind the bushes outside, and even shadowed a dog walker. She realizes her avoidance of Peeta Mellark is becoming a challenge, and in an effort to rectify the matter, Katniss takes another bus trip to the Capitol department store.
She spots Effie Trinket in the same place she met her before. Katniss approaches cautiously, clearing her throat when she steps in front of the large mahogany desk. Effie looks up to her and beams. She glances at her computer, punching a few buttons.
