Title: Will You Marry Me?
Summary: "I've loved you since I was five years old. I never thought I'd have the guts to speak to you but the games threw us together. As much as I hate them, everything they portray, I can't help but feel thankful. They brought me to you, I will love you forever, I promise we'll always be together"
POV: Katniss Everdeen

The feel of Peeta's palm against mine is calming and soothing. I hear someone saying "For the first time, Mr and Mrs Mellark" before the oak doors in front of us open and the clapping and cheering begins. I gasp as I take in my surroundings. The district hall looks beautiful. I remember when it was built.
For 8 weeks the whole district smelt of construction work. All you could hear was loud drilling, shouting men and crashes and bangs of metalwork. I couldn't see why it was worth this, just for a District Hall. But I can see why now. The building is made out of aluminium and is a large dome. The sun bounces off in every direction and it reminds me of the cornucopia.
The sloping ceiling and walls are strewn with flower chains. Mostly white lillies with pale bluebells. Everyone is seated at round tables in groups of 6. Then, right at the front, is a little table for two. For Peeta and me. The food is delicious, there's even lamb stew with dried plums. After what feels like a million courses we stop eating and the speeches begin. First up is Mum, "I didn't think these two would ever be together, but I'm glad they are. I can't think of another couple as happy together, to Katniss and Peeta" she says before raising her glass. Everyone does the same but as the bubbles slide down my throat a thought niggles away at my mind, what about her and Dad? The speeches fly by Tom, Haymitch, Effie, Annie, even little Finn says "Katniss and Peeta are perfect together" before sipping his apple juice. Everyone avoids any talk of the games, that is until Johanna spoke up. "As much as I hate the fucking Capitol and the shitty hunger games" I saw Annie clench her teeth and cover a protesting Finns ears. "At least one good thing has come from it. Even if you didn't know it Katniss, I could see you loved Peeta in the arena, and even a little in the first. You are the best friend I've never had. Peeta, take care of her and let Peenis live forever. FUCK THE CAPITOL" she finishing in a shout. Silence fills the room until Peeta starts applauding loud and fast, I quickly join in and soon the whole room is clapping and stamping their feet. Johanna bows before downing her champagne and sitting in her chair once again. I notice Haymitch slap her back and giggle quietly.
After the speech everyone wanders around chatting, every five seconds someone comes up to Peeta and I's table and congratulates us, again. Annie and Finn have just been and as Peeta bent down to Finn's level to talk to him I can't miss the twinkle in his eye. He looks so happy. Here comes a voice on the microphone again, "Now, for Katniss and Peeta's first dance as a married couple" Peeta grabs my hand and leads me to the centre of the room. The lights dim except for a few above the oak dance floor. Peeta pulls me close and presses his cheek against mine. "How ya doing Mrs Mellark?" he asks sexily, I can hear the smirk in his voice and I want to kiss him. But this is our moment, I can faintly hear the music in the background but all I see is him. Peeta's innocent blue eyes, his little side smile and his golden eyelashes. His hands rest at the small of my back and mine are wrapped around his neck, holding myself even close to him. I lower my gaze to stare at his full lips, his smirk disappears and he leans towards me. The moment our lips touch my fingers reach up to tug gently at his hair. After a few seconds we break apart and I rest my head on his chest. Listening to his steady heartbeat. The song ends and another song starts, people start to file onto the dancefloor, but all I can think about is Peeta.
I know this chapter's a bit short but there's only one more until I'm done :[ Like my Peenis reference ern? I enjoyed writing this so much that I might write a sequel? It could be Katniss' first pregnancy? Let me now what you think in the comments~Darcy
