Without further ado, chapter 9 of Camp Mockingjay, the penultimate chapter, cowritten by @burkygirl and @xerxia31…

The kiss tastes like surprise, like nights of longing and secret wishes finally fulfilled before sliding into a long, slow smoulder that burns in my belly and ignites a hunger unlike anything I’ve known before.
Peeta rumbles low in his chest and his hands flex to pull me closer. My hands thread through his golden curls as I sample first his top lip and then the bottom one. When his tongue slips past my lips, I grant him entry with a satisfied sigh. It slides against mine, then tickles along the roof of mouth only to plunder its depths again.
The hunger in my belly builds to an ache that spreads along my core until I throb between my legs and my breasts long for his touch.
But not yet. There are so many things left unsaid. It seems Peeta feels the same because he takes that moment to break the kiss, though he doesn’t let me go.
“I have always wanted to do that,” he whispers, and the tremor in his voice matches the one I feel inside.
