I woke sweating. I walk down stairs, everyone is there, my mother, Peeta's family, Gale, Delly, Hazelle, Posy, Rory, Vick, Haymitch, Effie, and Peeta. "It wasn't a dream." I said out loud on accident.
"Katniss, your awake." Peeta said standing up.
"No, no, no. Its my fault. All my fault. Peeta, your right, I am a mutt." I said turning and running into the study room. "Its my fault! I should have died! She should be living!" I screamed rocking back and forth.
"Catnip." Gale said.
"Katniss." Peeta said. They both stood in the door way.
"Catnip, it's not your fault." Gale said.
"Your right, its not completely my fault. I only put her in danger, you built the bomb that killed her, Gale!" I screamed standing up and walking past both of them.
"Your insane." Some one at the table said.
"Thank you." I said approaching the table. The phone started ringing so I walked over to it and answered. "Hello?"
"Annie?" I asked, she started laughing and crying at the same time. "Annie, calm down. What's wrong?"
"Finnick." She chocked out.
"Your son? What's wrong?"
"No, Finnick he's here."
"Annie, are you sure? Your imagination might be making this up?"
"No, it's not. I swear."
"Then, can I talk to him?"
"It's really you! I thought you died!"
"Ha, you can't get rid of a Victor that easily!"
"I know, I tried to get rid of myself, but Peeta had to keep me alive!" I said being extra loud with the last part. "They even threw me back in the games."
"I heard about that."
"So, how are you alive?"
"Like I said you can't get rid of a victor that easily."
"Finnick, really, how?"
"Well, its simple really, I didn't die. I wasn't dead."
"Well, I'm glad. It was a little to secretive." I laughed.
"I would give you a sugar cube, but were on the phone."
"Thanks Finn, but I don't want a sugar cube." I laughed.
"Well, I got to go, but it has been great talking to you, and Annie says she told you."
"Okay bye, and tell her, she was right."
"I will bye." Finnick said hanging up the phone.
Just as I hung up the phone it started ringing again. "Hello?"
"Did you hear about Finnick?"
"Yes! Annie called me and told me and I thought it was her imagination, but then I talked to him."
"Have you told Peeta?"
"Not yet, I hung up with Finnick and then you call."
"I will, will I see you on the Victory Tour?"
"Try and get rid of me brainless."
"Oh, believe me, I will. Bye." I said hanging up.
"Who was on the phone?" Peeta asked.
"Oh, just Annie, Finnick, and Johanna."
"Finnick? Like Annie's son?" Peeta asked.
"No, like the Victor Finnick."
"What? He died."
"That's what I thought. I though Annie was imagining in, but then I talked to Finnick."
"Kat, are you sure?"
"Yes, I'm sure. If you don't believe me, then call Annie or Jo."
"Catnip, you, Peeta, and I were there when he died." Gale said.
"I thought the same thing, but like he said, you can't get rid of Victors that easily. Trust me I tried to get rid of myself, but Peeta just wouldn't allow that."
"I don't want to lose my Mockingjay."
"And I don't want to lose my boy with the bread." I said sitting on Peeta's lap and kissing him.
"Gross." Posy and Rory said at the same time.
"I believe you." Peeta said.
"Sorry, Catnip, but I don't believe you." Gale said.
"Fine, then go call Annie, or Jo."
"I actually like that nickname more than others." I said shooting Haymitch a look and then Gale the same one.
"Sorry, Sweetheart." Haymitch said.
"Your not going to give up on that are you?"
"Nope." Haymitch said popping the P.
"I have news, for everyone." Peeta's mom said. "I'm pregnant." Everyone jaws dropped.
"Your not the only one." I said.
"What?" Peeta asked looking at me.
"Well, I'm pregnant too. With twins." I said.
"I'm having twins too." Peeta's mom said.
"They're going to end up and the games." I said looking up at everyone.
"Because, they are Peeta's and mine, the leaders of the rebellion, they want to get back at us, where it hurts." I said.
"Why not just kill you?"
"Because they know that that's not where it hurts. Seeing a loved one hurt, or watching them get killed and you can't save them. Watching them get hurt to the point that-"
"Kat, you don't have to finish." Peeta said wiping the stray tear off of my face.
The TV turned on by its self and I got up and watched it. "Welcome to Capital TV," The TV said. The anthem played and then Paylor came on the screen.
"All fences will be rebuilt and electrified, hunting will be illegal, peacekeepers will be coming in as soon as possible, there will be a Quarter Quell every 5 years, the reaping ages are 12-18 and anyone no matter your age, can volunteer, and Coin is helping me with all desions. Good bye."
"No!" I screamed and ran out of the house.
"Katniss! Katniss!" Peeta screamed after me, but I didn't stop. I ran all the way to the woods. when I got to the fence people were already building it I jumped over it and kept running. I went to the lake.
"This might be the last time I come, dad." I sat down so that my bare feet were in the water. "Dad, I love you. Can you tell Prim that I love her too, and-and I'm sorry."
"I'm sorry too." Gale said.
"Gale, I-I thought Peeta would come."
"He tried, but I said, I could get to you faster and I know the woods like the back of my hand." We both said some more things and then my world turned dark, noises barely audible, I can just barely see Gale drop the rock that hit me in the head and put his left arm under legs and his right arm holding my back up. No matter how much I wanted to fight him, I couldn't, I couldn't move.
"Why?" I mumbled.
I could see again and I am looking into the beautiful eyes of my husband, Peeta Mellark. "Peeta?"
"I'm right here Katniss."
"Is right here." Gale said.
My eyes widen, "stay away from me." I am sitting on the table, shaking like a leaf. Peeta is standing in front of me, a couple of feet away from me, "too far away" I think. I wrap my legs around Peeta's waist and pull him closer. I hold on to him like I might lose him if I let go.
"What did you do to her?" Peeta asked turning around to Gale.
"Liar! Your a liar." I squeaked letting go of Peeta and standing, but still shaking like a leaf in the wind.
"What did you do to her?" Peeta asked slowly stepping towards Gale.
"Nothing." Gale said stepping closer to Peeta. They ended up circling each other, eyeing each other closely. I jumped in front of the separating them.
"Stop, please." I said.
"No Katniss, go away" Gale said pushing me to the ground.
"Katniss, are you okay?" Peeta asked, but before I could say anything Gale punched Peeta. Peeta attacked Gale. They wrestled to the ground. When they finally stopped, they were both bleeding and bruised. Peeta hobbled towards me blood coming out of his mouth. Gale stood there, across the room, looking just like Cato.
"Cato." I spit out.
"What?" Peeta asked.
"Look at yourself, Gale, doesn't that image of yourself look like Cato." I said.
"Yeah, so, it just means I look like a person who beat up your lame excuse of a husband." Gale spat at me, blood flying across the room.
"Stop it! You can make fun if me all you want, but you cannot make fun of Peeta." I said getting closer to Gale.
"I will talk about who ever I want, especially Bread Boy." Our face are inches apart now.
"He has a name you know." I said spitting in his face.
"So, you should try using it sometime, or are you too childish that you can't say the name of the person I chose over you."
"I can say it. Peeta. Peeta. Peeta. See?" Gale said spitting blood in my face. Haymitch and Peeta pulled me away before I did something that I would regret.
When they finally let go I went to the kitchen and locked myself in. I picked up glasses and threw them.
"Katniss! Common, let me in." Peeta said knocking on the door.
"No! I don't want to hurt you."
"Your hurting me by not letting me in. Katniss, if anything happened to you, I would die."
"I'm sorry." Throwing more glasses. I broke one in my hand and I screamed from the pain of the sharp shards cutting into my skin.
"Katniss! Please let me in."
"I don't want to physically hurt you!"
"I will brake down the door and that's a promise if you don't let me in."
"Go ahead." I said looking at the blood falling into my clothes. Peeta got in some how and he cradled me in his arms. "I'm sorry." I said touching his face smearing a little blood on it.
My mom cleaned Peeta up and then the cleaned me up. "Our Prep Team will have a cow tomorrow." I said kissing Peeta as I laid my head on his lap. Peeta's family went home, Haymitch and Effie went to his house, my mom and Prim went to her house, and Delly and Gale went home.
"It will be funny." Peeta said messing with my hair.
"I can't wait to see there faces."
"What are we ever going to do with you." Peeta said in a capital voice.
"Well, I know what you can do." I said sitting up so that I was sitting on Peeta's lap.
"And what would that be?"
"Well-" I started, but was interrupted by someone knocking on the door. I got up and went to the door. "Yes?"
"She isn't the only one here you know." Finnick said.
"Hey, come in."
"Kat, who's at the door?"
"Your so funny."
"Thank you." I said grinning. Peeta came and picked me up like a sack of flour.
"I'm not a sack of flour."
"Your right, a sack of flour weighs less." I hit him in the butt. "I'm kidding, Kat, you weigh less than I sack of flour. Come in." We walked to living room, Peeta dropped me on the couch and say on me.
"They are squished." I said.
"Sorry." Peeta said standing.
"Who is they?" Annie asked.
"I'm pregnant." I said. "I'll be back." I said running upstairs. I grabbed a blanket and put it on like a cape.
"Your childish." Johanna said.
"Well, I have that right because that women stole it from me." I said pointing at my mom who is standing in the door way.
"How did you here me?"
"Mom, you could scare deer away, your feet are so loud."
"Funny, your father used to tell me that. Anyway, I can't babysit, um, I have to take care of some people from a mine explosion. They opened the mines again, they-"
"Opened dads tunnel didn't they?"
"Idiots. It blew up right?"
"Yes." I screamed. Peeta pinned me against a wall.
"Katniss, calm down."
"What are you doing?" Johanna asked.
"Preventing her from hurting herself."
"Okay, okay, fine." I said. Peeta let go of me and I took Prim from my mom and she left. I sat down and held Prim in my arms.
"How old is she?" Annie asked bringing me out of my thoughts.
"Almost a year old. She will be almost 2 years older than her siblings." I said without looking up.
"None." I said. "Hi Haymitch. Man, you people are loud."
"Hello to you too, sweetheart." I turned around and glared at Haymitch. Prim started crying so hard she throws up.
"Katniss?" Peeta laughs.
"Peeta, have your daughter." I said. I went upstairs and showered. When the water hit my cuts I screamed.
"I'm fine." I yelled down stairs to Peeta. When I got out if the shower I got dressed in black shorts and one of Peeta's yellow shirts. When I walked downstairs Peeta rolled his eyes. "You love it don't lie."
"Someone knows how to get dressed!" Haymitch said to me.
"Who?" I asked sarcastically.
"Not Katniss." Peeta laughed.
"Hey, your making fun of your own shirt." I said sitting down.
"Are you always like this, Katniss?"
"Yes, Effie." I said.
"Katniss." Peeta whispered.
"Haymitch." I said handing Prim to Haymitch. Peeta got up and left and I followed him. "Peeta."
"What ever it is that your seeing isn't real. I promise."
"You tried to kill me, real or not real?"
"You killed Coin, real or not real."
"You acted like you loved me."
"At first it was an act, but then I my love for you blossomed, I love you, Peeta."
"Katniss," I looked into Peeta's blue eyes. "I'm fine I just want to be alone for a minute."
"Okay." I said leaving. "Bad. He's right you know."
"About?" Haymitch asked.
"I'm a mutt. A killer."
"Katniss, we all had to." Johanna said.
I stopped listening to everyone and I got lost in though. I had a 'daydream.' Gale came over and I started shaking. He walked up to me.
That's when I screamed, my scream brought me back to reality. "Katniss?"
"I'm going to go hunting." I said getting up.
Johanna, Finnick, Annie, Haymitch, Effie, and I talked for a couple of hours when Rye bursts in the house. "Peeta, they are whipping Katniss in the square."
