When I walked in the house I didn't see anyone, "Effie?"
"Katniss, we are up here!" Effie said and I ran upstairs.
"Uh, she was crying and she threw up, and she cried more and I didn't know what to do.
"Where are you going?"
"To call Peeta." I ran down stairs to the phone a called the bakery.
"Hello." Peeta's mom said.
"Where's Peeta?" Peeta's mom laughed and hung up. "Effie, I'm going to go, Haymitch is next door and so is my mom, okay?"
"Okay." Effie said as I sprinted out the door. When I got to the bakery I saw Peeta.
"Peeta!" I yelled running up to him. "You're okay."
"Yeah, why wouldn't I be?" He asked putting his hands on my face, forcing me to look up at him.
"Uh, never mind."
"Okay." Peeta sighed. We went back to working, a few costumers here and there.
"I was thinking about hiring someone to help out around here."
"I think that would be good. Being a victor you will be gone every couple of months."
"You're right." Peeta said taking a piece of paper and a pen. He wrote 'Help Wanted' and put our phone number on it. Most of people in District 12 have phone now, if not they know where we live. He then walked over to the window and put it there and switched the sign from open to closed. "Ready?"
"Yeah." I said getting up and walking over to him. I grabbed his hand and we walked home. While Peeta started making dinner, I sat at the table watching.
Knock. Knock. "Yes?" I asked answering the door.
"I thought this was Peeta's house I'm sorry. Can you direct me to his house?"
I just stared at this person. "This is Peeta's house."
"Katniss, who's at the door?" Peeta asked from the kitchen.
"It's for you." I answered. "Come in, have a seat." I gestured towards the living room. "Hold on." I said walking to the kitchen. I walked up behind Peeta and put my arms around him and laid my head on his shoulder. "Who ever it is, is here for you."
"Okay, I'm going." Peeta said walking into the living room. "Delly?"
"Peeta! It's good to see you." Delly said hugging Peeta. I should have recognized her. She looks different since I saw her in 13 all those years ago. "I didn't know that you were back in 12?"
"I was surprised when I found out at first too." I said walking into the room. Delly just stared at me. "I'm going to go get Prim up."
"Okay." Peeta said.
"Oh, your sister?" Delly asked.
"No, my sister died, try the word daughter." I said walking upstairs.
"Hi beautiful." I said picking Prim up, she started crying. "Shh, baby girl. Are you hungry?" I asked and it seemed to make her stop crying. I walked down stairs and grabbed her bottle out of the fridge in the kitchen, went to the living room, sat down next to Peeta and started feeding her.
As I burped her she threw up on me. Peeta laughed and I just glared at him. "How did you talk me into this?"
"Words." I laughed and got up to go wash Prim, on my way I ruffled Peeta's hair as I passed him. He and Delly talked while I washed Prim.
"Here is your daughter." I said handing Peeta a clean Prim.
"She's adorable." Delly said.
"Thanks." I said. "Now I'm going to go get cleaned up." I said.
"Be careful of your skin." Peeta said.
"But the medicine hurts so much." I whinned.
"And it hurts much more to leave it alone." I just stuck my tong out at him. "I love you."
"Ahuh whatever you say." I said walking away. Leaving a laughing Peeta behind.
Katniss walked away as I laughed. "Sorry." I said turning back to Delly.
"No it's fine. So I see that you guys are doing good."
"Yes we are, I'm glad. I don't know what I would of done if she had picked Gale."
"Yeah, you guys seem to complete each other."
"You should start coming to breakfast."
"I think I will."
"Ow!" Katniss screamed. Followed by groaning.
"I'm fine. Stupid Capital medicine." She said, I just laughed. "I know you're laughing at me Peeta. You're just lucky your skin burns healed and they weren't that bad. You weren't as close to the bombs as me or, or, or her." Katniss was quiet after that.
"I'm just glad that I wasn't there." Delly said. "Gale said that it was horrible."
"It was." Katniss said walking down the steps in a tank top and shorts. She was braiding her wet hair as she walked down the steps. "Your bread is burning."
"No, I'll get it." Katniss said walking to the kitchen. She came back silently and threw a piece of burnt bread at me. "Will that save your family?" She asked with a huge grin across her face as she leaned up against the wall. I just had to laugh at her.
"Well, I have to get home before Gale sends people searching after me." Delly said.
"Gale?" Katniss asked.
"Yeah, we live together, we're engaged."
