otp: peeta and katniss

2

Peeta and I grow back together. There are still moments when he clutches the back of a chair and hangs on until the flashbacks are over. I wake screaming from nightmares of mutts and lost children. But his arms are there to comfort me. And eventually his lips. On the night I feel that thing again, the hunger that overtook me on the beach, I know this would have happened anyway.

I like to think that at the end of Mockingjay, when Haymitch and Katniss go home, the reason Effie had to say such a heartfelt goodbye is because she and Haymitch had decided by themselves that one of them needed to stay with Katniss, and the other needed to stay with Peeta.  So they agreed Haymitch would go home with Katniss and Effie would stay behind with Peeta.

And then she wasn’t able to come visit right away.  But she came eventually.  She had to.  She loved those three (especially Haymitch).  I refuse to believe she didn’t.

“I feel that thing again. The thing I only felt once before. In the cave last year, when I was trying to get Haymitch to send us food. I kissed Peeta about a thousand times during those Games and after. But there was only one kiss that made me feel something stir deep inside. Only one that made me want more. But my head wound started bleeding and he made me lie down.

This time, there is nothing but us to interrupt us. And after a few attempts, Peeta gives up on talking. The sensation inside me grows warmer and spreads out from my chest, down through my body, out along my arms and legs, to the tips of my being. Instead of satisfying me, the kisses have the opposite effect, of making my need greater. I thought I was something of an expert on hunger, but this is an entirely new kind.
