Scars Reopened

It's been 8708 days, 3 hours and 25 minutes since Katniss had defeated President snow and abolished the Hunger games. Now with her family Peeta and her two beautiful children, she feels trapped, unable to live the live she had before. What will happen when a note passes under the door from a mysterious stranger? This may be able to solve Katniss's trapped feeling, but it may also hurt the people around her.

3. Her Peace

 

Everyone shuffled slightly and the sound of murmuring spread around Katniss's living room. Katniss was on edge. What the hell is Peeta playing at she thought, what's he planning to do, fight them. She was about to pull him toward her when he spoke again.

"What we want you all to do is go home to your families, your districts and talk to mayors or anyone you know and get them to join together to make a stand" He gulped and began playing with his fingers. He used to be great at making speeches all those years ago but he'd never made another one during the time he lived in District 12. "We'll all join together tomorrow in between the space outside districts 6 and 8. Bring people."

                             .               .               .              .                 .                  .              .

"Hello and welcome to the Capitol as One. Updated news on the Copy Cat of the Hunger Games. People had travelled far and wide this morning to join together outside districts 6 and 8 to make a stand to anyone considering making a second Games. Led by Peeta Mellark, Haymitch Abernathy and Katniss Everdeen, they brought all district leaders together to make a united stand against these conspiriters to ensure the Games will never happen again. In an effect to protect their children and there children. It's been decided, a law has been created stating if there's any suggestion to restart these games and recreate these mass murders they would be tracked down and executed."

                            .               .               .              .                 .                  .              .

"Katniss" A voice echoed through the crowd "Katniss" This time Katniss heard the call and turned around. It was Peeta, the man who had just made the speech that may of stopped one of the worst things from happening again. That man, her husband.

"Hey Katniss can I talk to you a moment alone?" He whispered, erging her to follow him. They made there way through the crowds in till they came to a empty space with nothing but a memorial pond near them. "Look I haven't been quite honest with you" He paused as if to recollect his thoughts "The only reason I haven't told you was because I know you've been stressed and I understood that. My leg that I lost, well lately it's been playing up quite badly. I keep feeling lost and thinking what would of been if I still had it" This was hard of him to admit but he was glad he did, it was like a weight was lifted off his shoulders.

Katniss knew how difficult that was for him, she knew the leg might of given some of discomfort but this still shocked her. It also gave her confidence and prompted her to reveal to Peeta how she'd been feeling.

Katniss slid the front door open to her house exposing the interior inside. Behind her, Melonie and Sky skipped in followed by Peeta. Ever since he and Katniss had revealed the truth about their problems the pain and the feeling of loss in his leg had eased . This was the same for Katniss, now Peeta knew, she felt better -she couldn't believe that she ever felt that way so strongly. Now they believed they could both work together.

As she sat down on the soft leather sofa that was situated on the opposite side of the room, she brushed her fingertips over the smooth fabric, feeling the individual scratches and sign of wear. She felt relaxed knowing that everyone was coming together, defending the life they now had, all for freedom. She could be at ease with life. 

Katniss slid to the side as something joined her on the sofa. She looked up to see bright blue eyes looking down at her. It was Peeta. His blonde locks pushed off his face, his strong jawline emphasising his features. How did I end up with someone so perfect? Katniss snook a quick smile. Peeta catching this laughed and went down to kiss his wife tenderly. How did I end up with someone so perfect? Peeta thought, unaware Katniss had thought the exact same thing. He pulled up and brushed her dark hair behind her ears. She'd decided to wear it down today, however much she loved her braid she believed it was her past and now it was time for something new.

Peeta wrapped his arm around Katniss as a sign of affection. The door creaked open and Haymitch entered, the stench of alcohol on his clothes. But Peeta and Katniss didn't mind, they were happy he was there. As Haymitch made his way toward the wooden chair his eyes caught the book Katniss had been looking at just a few days before.

They were all in silence for a few moments. Neither of them knew what to say. Katniss was glad when Sky broke it by jumping onto Peetas knee making Peeta grunt. Melonie followed by prancing across the room and delicately sitting in the seat by Katniss.

"Mummy can you sing me the lullaby?" Melonie smiled, giggling contently as she sat on the sofa beside her mother. Katniss nodded and brushed Melonies long, dark hair as she prepared herself to sing.

"Deep in the meadow, under the willow

A bed of grass, a soft green pillow

Lay down your head, and close your sleepy eyes

And when again they open, the sun will rise"

Melonie lay back resting her head on her mothers legs as Katniss caressed her hair. Sky who was still perched on Peeta, settled down and lay back, his thick lashes fluttering to a close.

'Here it's safe, here it's warm

Here the daisies guard you from every harm'

Katniss continued. She was determined to finish the lullaby which held so many memories for her.

'Here your dreams are sweet and tomorrow brings them true

Here is the place where I love you'

As Katniss leaned back against the sofa she began thinking about her life over the past decade. Oh how much had happened. Things she wanted to forget, to block out of her mind so she could live a full and happy life. But she knew that if none of it had happened, she wouldn't have the life she had today. Katniss didn't know why she'd ever wanted more excitement in life because when she thought about it, she had everything she ever wanted and more.

Her family, her life, her peace.

Just Katniss, Peeta, Melonie and Sky.
