7. Best Night of my Life


It was getting closer to 8 and for some reason, I'm nervous. I mean, half an hour ago, I was fine. I check the clock and see that it's 7:24. I still have some time to do God-knows-what. I go into the bathroom and check for any flaws. Thankfully, I don't. I go into the kitchen and find Johanna sitting on the counter on her phone. "Why are you on the counter, we make food there. Get your ass off the counter." I say. She justs rolls her eyes, smirking. She heads for the living room and plops down on the couch. I sigh and head back to my room for a while. I walk to my full mirror, I look...amazing. I mean, my eye shadow compliments my steel gray eyes, my light pink lip gloss looks great. My hair is slightly curled and to be honest, I've never seen myself like this. I step out of my room and see Johanna at the door. I hear her talking to a guy, who must be her date. She opens the door wider and I stop dead in my tracks. Her date is my best friend , Gale Hawthorne. "Hey Catnip" he says, clearly surprised to see me here. We haven't been on speaking terms for a few months. He looks different now, he looks older. Johanna stands there, confused. "You 2 know each other?" She asks. I look at Gale before answering. "Gale is one of my best friends, we just haven't talked in a few months." I say. Jo just nods. The thought of our date pops into my mind and I glance at the clock and see that it's 7:49. We still have time. I go into my room and grab my purse. I take my keys, wallet, phone, any last minute things I might not need but I might as well take. I hear a knock and I run to go get it. It's not like Jo will just get up and get the door if she wants to. I open it and see Peeta, Finn, and Annie. I open the door wider to let them in and I hug Peeta with a death grip. I unwrap my arms and lead him into the living room.


She looks gorgeous. I'm so lucky to have her. When she ran into my arms with that death grip, it couldn't have gotten better. Katniss leads me into the living room and sits on my lap. "Ok, I'd like you guys to meet my date, Gale." Johanna says. "Gale is my cousin, just to let you know" Katniss says. All of us nod in unison. "Well, we should get going" Finn says. We all nod and get up and leave. We all go in separate cars. Katniss and I go in one car, Jo and Gale, in another, and Finn and Annie in another. We meet up at Olive Garden like, 5 minutes later. When we get there, I open Katniss' door and she blushes. I smile and lead her to the door. When everyone is here, we check in with the reservation. The waitress leads the 6 of us to our table and we start off with drinks. After a while, we order our food. When we're halfway through dinner, Katniss excuses herself and Jo and Annie follow. Why do girls go to the bathroom in groups? "Earth to Peeta!" Finn says, waving his hand in my face. I snap back into reality and see Finn and Gale looking at me as if waiting for an answer. "What?" I say. "So when are you gonna ask her?" Finn asks. I smile at the thought of Katniss becoming my fiancée. "Well, I was thinking about doing it after dinner" I reply. They both smile. A few minutes later, the girls come back. I smile and wink at Katniss and, sure enough, she blushes. When we're all done eating, I reach into my blazer pocket for the ring. I'm about to do something I never thought I'd do: I'm about to get all the attention in the room. Here it goes. I grab an empty wine glass and a fork. I start tapping the glass with the fork and like I suspected, all the attention is on me. "Excuse me, yea, hi. Uh...I'd like to say a few words to my girlfriend here" I start off. I look over at Katniss and her face is flat-out flushed. I smile at her. "Katniss, I have loved you ever since I laid eyes on you back in college. You mean the world to me and I'd do anything to see your smile everyday. I love your smile, your laugh, your stubborn ways. You're gorgeous in every way. You have no idea the effect you have on everyone. It would make me the happiest man in the world if you'd spend the rest the your life with me. Katniss Everdeen, will you marry me?" I say. She's crying and honestly, my eyes are watering a little. Katniss smiles and squeaks out: "Yes, of course!" The entire restaurant is screaming and clapping and everyone at our table is crying tears of joy, mainly the girls. I slip the ring on her finger and I stand up. She wraps her arms around me and when she pulls away, she joins our lips. This night is officially the best night of my life by far.
