This is the squeal to The Hunger Games After Mockingjay.
I don't own The Hunger Games, Suzanne Collins does.
Katniss and Peeta are Mentors now, will they be able to help kids survive or will the kids die because the couldn't be helped?


8. Train

Doctor who reference in there, I just had to.

Katniss's POV

Aero and Willow have there hour in the Justice Building, and then they have to join us all on the train.

"Yeah, I did that." Willow said walking past Peeta, Haymitch, and I and going to her room.

At dinner I got annoyed with Haymitch and screamed at him, "how can you just drink your problems away? How can you watch people who depend on you die? I watched my sister die and that's all I could handle. Before her, Rue, Cato, Clove, Mags, all of them. How do you just drink? Not all of us can drink. Not all of find that appealing." I said stabbing the same spot with a butter knife all those years ago, again hitting between Haymitch's fingers.

"Manners!" Effie screamed.

"Sorry, haven't learned those." I said walking out of the room.

I threw my self on my bed and started crying. After awhile Effie knocked on my door to say "the reaping's are on." I change into grey sweatpants and a white sleeveless shirt. I walk out and find Johanna Mason, Adabella Meek, John Smith, and their tributes.

"Hey Jo, I didn't know we were picking up people in the side of the road." I said grinning.

"Well, they picked you up, and they are picking up people from 4." Johanna said as the train slows down to a stop, we must be in four.

Everyone sat down and as the reaping's turned on 4 peace keepers came in, "Mrs. Katniss Mellark, President Coin would like to speak to you." I stood up and one of the peace keepers tied my hands behind my back and everyone, but the peace keepers shared a worried glance with me.

"Ah, Mrs. Mellark, so good to see you again." Coin said.

"You too." I said sitting down across from her.

"Don't lie to me, Katniss." I nodded. "Now, if your not careful I will kill your friends and family." I nodded again. "Take her back. Hurt her in front of her friends and family, but don't kill her. That'll be my job if she isn't careful." Coin said as the peace keepers made me stand up and took me back to everyone. They pushed me down and started kicking and whipping me.

"Katniss!" Peeta said standing up.

"No, Peeta, stop, ow! Don't get yourself hurt." I said screaming in pain as the peace keepers laughed. Finally they left and I could untie my hands and stand up.

"What was that about?" Peeta asked helping me stand up.

"Oh, just the usual, if I act out in any way all of my friends and family will die." I said collapsing into Peeta's warm and steady arms.

"Come on, let's get you cleaned up." Peeta said picking me up. I snuggled my head into his chest as he carried me to the bathroom in our room.

He started the bath and helped me undress. Once I was in the tub, Peeta washed me. When I was done, I got out and got dressed in a grey sweater and red leggings. We walked out and back to the sitting room. Haymitch, Effie, Annie, Finnick, and Johanna were still there.

"Give up on wearing white, sweetheart?" Haymitch asked as we came into sight.

"Yeah, pretty much." I responded as I sat down next to Peeta. "Everytime I wear white it ends up stained with my blood." Peeta stiffens next to me and I look at him. I searche his eyes for blue, but all I see is black. He grips the couch and I know he is having a flash back. I straddle his legs and hold his face in my hands.

"Get a room!" Johanna hollered.

"Peeta. Look at me. Peeta. Not real. Not real. What your seeing is not real. I would never hurt you. I love you." Peeta eyes remained black.


"No, Peeta. It's not real." Nothing I said would work so I kissed him. When I pulled away I looked into his changing eyes. I sat still staring into his eyes until they turned blue.

"I'm sorry."

"Stop that." I said folding my arms over my chest.

"Stop what?"

"Stop saying sorry. It's not your fault that Snow used you against me. None of it was your fault."

"Its not your fault either."

"He's right, sweetheart." Haymitch said. "You were just their symbol."

"Why? Why me? What did I do."

"You pulled out the berries."

"Katniss, you should be grateful that you survived." Effie stated.

"Grateful? Sure, we can call it that." I said getting up. "I'm going to bed. Peeta, you coming?"

"Yeah." Peeta said getting up and taking my hand.


The next day I decided that I will be calm. I got up when Effie knocked on the door and got dressed. I put on a red knee length dress and a red headband instead of my usual braid.

"Are you okay?" Peeta asked me raising an eyebrow.

"Just fine." I replied.

During breakfast I didn't talk or listen. I start focusing when I bunch of hands are in my face. "What?"

"Did you hear me?" Effie asks frustrated.

"No, sorry."

"Katniss, use your manners, and listen." I sighed and rolled my eyes earning a sound of anger from an angry Effie and a smile from everyone. "Your interview is tomorrow. You will enter a few minutes after Peeta-"

"For extra effect, right. The same thing every year." I said rolling my eyes, yet again.

"Can't you just follow tradition without making rude comments?"

"Obviously not."

"Mom, I'm done." Prim said.

"Okay." I said grabbing Prim's medical bag and helping her.

"When will you teach me how to do this?"

"When your eighteen."


This year the costumes don't use coal, Cinna and Portia have found some way to make our tributes this year, pearls. At the end of the parade, President Coin calls Portia, Cinna, and the Prep Teams from 12 up on stage. She says "congratulations. Now, goodbye." She has and evil grin forming on her face. I start to wonder what is going to happen, when she has her Peacekeepers, publicly shoot all of them.
