I Found You

Katniss runs into college classmate Peeta Mellark and they start catching up. They become inseparable, will they live a happily ever after?


17. House Shopping


I wake up in Peeta's arms, again. I love when he wraps his arms around me. I try to wiggle out of his arms, but he tightens his grip around me. I smile and kiss him awake. After a second or 2 he kisses back. I pull away smiling. "Great to see you're awake." I say while giving him a cheeky grin. "Great to wake up with kisses like that" he says, returning the grin. I get up and go and use the bathroom, brush my teeth. I walk out and see Peeta still on the bed, this time, under the covers. I walk over to him and shake him a little. He groans, but doesn't budge. "Peeta, get up babe." I say, shaking him. "Kat, a man needs his sleep." He says. His words are muffled by the covers but still understandable. "And a lady needs her man." I reply. I stop shaking him for a bit. He pops his head out from under the covers but only his eyes are visible. He raises his eyebrows and looks at me, interested. "A lady needs her man, huh?" He asks. I put my hands on my hips and nod, grinning. "Yup, I need my man." I say. With that, he pops out of bed and stands in front of me. He mimics me by putting his hands on his hips. Did I mention he's shirtless? His toned abs and huge biceps...wow. I can't help but stare at him. He notices me gazing at him. "Enjoying my 'God-like' figure?" He says. I smile and wrap my arms around his neck. "Oh yeah" I say. I peck his lips and send him into the bathroom. I head into the kitchen and make some tea. After a few minutes, Peeta comes out. He's still shirtless, but I don't mind. I'd prefer him being shirtless. I finish making my tea and sit down on his lap in the living room. "So, what's our plan for today?" Peeta asks. Considering today is Monday, I have to work. "Well, babe, I have to work. Remember, my time off from work ended. Have to be in by 9." I say. He frowns but I kiss him and he perks up again. I laugh and stand up to go put my mug in the dishwasher. I glance at the clock and see that it's 8 am. I still have time. "Ok so when I get home, we'll continue our house hunting, ok?" I say. Peeta nods. "Babe, what time do you have to be in for work?" I ask him. He thinks for a moment. "I don't have to be in until 9:20" he says. Peeta co-owns his family's bakery. "Oh ok. It's-" I look over to see the time. 8:09. "It's about 8:10, I have over half an hour 'till work. You have over an hour." I say, giving him an evil smirk. He seems to know what I mean, so he follows me to our room and the real fun starts...


After Kat and I have our 'fun' we both get dressed for work. Kat meets me in the kitchen before grabbing her bag. She kisses me before walking out the door. I still have some time before I have to go to work. I watch re-runs of Riduclousness before heading out. I grab my phone, wallet, and keys and walk to me car. It's a 10 minute drive from my place to the bakery. I pull into the parking lot and sign in. "Hey Peet!" I know that voice. I turn around and see one of my older brothers, Ryan. Hey Ry, what up?" I say. He shrugs before answering. "Nothin' much. How's that sexy girl of yours?" He says. I chuckle a little. "Kat's fine." I say. Ryan goes to the back and I run the cashier. The day goes by pretty fast. By the time I get off, the sun is already setting. I sign out and head to my car. I get home and see that Kat is already sitting on the couch in her sweats. She's on her laptop, looking at houses, I assume. She looks up and smiles. She runs to me and wraps her arms around me. "Hey! How was work?" She asks. I kiss her and reply. "Pretty good, I missed you." I say. She giggles and pull me toward the couch. "So, we've narrowed it down, we chose the house in LA, correct?" She says. I nod and she clicks on the house. "This house has like a path to the beach, but it's private, you know, for us." She says pointing to the path she was talking about. "So, what do you think?" She asks. I'm speechless. "I...uh..I really like this house, like this house is amazing!" I say. Kat giggles and closes her laptop. "So what's the plan? When is this house gonna be ours?" Kat says with a smirk. "We could buy it after our wedding, fly all if our stuff out there, then go on our honeymoon." I say. I like the idea, I mean, if you buy it before, you have to fly the stuff and that's a stress when your wedding is not too far. "Perfect, we can get settled in, then have fun during our honeymoon." She says. I smile and pull her closer to me. We end up falling asleep on the couch.
