8. Husband and Wife

4 months later...


I hear a loud thump downstairs so I quickly drop all the clean clothes and race down stairs to find Peeta laying on the floor in a pool of blood. My legs give way and I fall next to him in shock. NO, NO ,NO this can not be happening. Multiple stab wounds surround him. Who would do such a thing?

"Katniss....." Peeta mumbles. I look into his crystal blue eyes.

"Peeta please" I beg

"Peeta please, stay with me" I pick up his hand and hold it. Tears stream from my eyes.

"Katniss...." He mumbles again

"Peeta, please I love you and I can not live without you" I scream. I watch as he takes his last breath.

End Of Nightmare

I jolt up in bead screaming,


"Shhh, Katniss it was just a bad dream it isn't real" Peeta says whilst embracing me into a cuddle.

"You were dead" I sob.

"Katniss it's ok, I'm right here." I begin to slowly calm down realising that it was only just a dream. He kisses my forehead. I close my eyes and try to get back to sleep knowing that tomorrow, or today because I hardly have a clue what time it is, will be the biggest day of my life.

When I wake up the golden sun is shining through the tiny gap in the middle of the curtains brightening up the room. I turn over an notice that Peeta isn't there, instead my mom is smiling at me in a chair by the side of the bed. Mom got out of hospital two months ago, the doctors said that it was a miracle that she survived the illness. She told me that it was the thought of mine and Peetas child not having a grandmother that upset her and she tried her best to get better. With success. She smiles even more when she sees me.

"Big day today" She says. I smile. My morning sickness hasn't gone, it isn't long before in in the bathroom throwing up. Because Peeta isn't here my mom holds my hair back and rubs my back instead and when I am finished she hands me a towel so I can wipe my face. She leaves so I can wash myself. Once I am finished I put my robe on and head back into my bedroom where she is waiting for me with my prep team. I am now four months pregnant and my belly is beginning to show. After the interview with Ceaser was aired live people have been coming up to me and Peeta non-stop congratulating us and giving us little presents for the baby.

 My mom makes me sit in a chair whilst my prep team frantic over me to get my hair and makeup done in time. It feels like forever until they step back and I can admire myself in the mirror, my makeup is natural but my hair falls over both shoulders in big, natural curls. Small diamonds have been scattered in my hair. My mom walks over,

"I will go and get you something to eat" She says. Good! I think. I am starving. It seems like forever until she walks back with two croissants and a glass of water. Quickly I eat the croissanta and drink the water. It isn't long before they are all fussing over the dress and helping me into it. Venia then leads me over to my closet so I can look at myself in my full view mirror. My dress is white, with diamonds all over. My mom adds the finishing touch to my dress, my Mockingjay pin.

"I can't believe my little girl is getting married" Mom says crying. Effie bursts into the room.

"Come one everyone we have to be on schedule, the car is outside ready and waiting to take Katniss away to her wedding. Chop, chop." She then walks over to me,

"Katniss dear, you look gorgeous" She says.

"Thank you Effie" I reply.

Soon enough we are on our way. Peeta wanted to choose the venue, for a surprise. So I have no clue where we are heading. That is until the car stops and I look out of the window. The venue is the meadow. The aisle has been scattered with primrose's and on either side of the aisle there is five long benches for the guests to sit on. At the end of the aisle is a gorgeous white canopy decorated with primrose's. The whole place is beautiful. My mom hands me my bouquet of primroses'. We chose primrose's so then Prim would also be here with us.

My prep team, Effie and my mom rush to go and take their seats and Haymitch walks up to me.

"Ready sweetheart?" he asks smiling. I nod and smile.

Everyone begins to stand and I hear the music begin to play. I link my left arm around Haymitch's and he begins to walk me down the aisle. That's when I see him, he is so perfect. He is wearing a dazzling white suit. When I see him I smile even more. This moment is perfect. When we reach the end of the aisle Haymitch hand me over to Peeta. Peeta takes hold of my hands. I look at him in the eye and smile even more. 

"I, Peeta Mellark, take you, Katniss Everdeen, to be my wife, to share both good times and bad times together, I will forever be by your side, protect you and care for you. My love for you is like a ring, never ending, eternal and it will never end. With this ring, I thee wed" He says and he places the ring onto my ring finger.

"I, Katniss Everdeen, take you, Peeta Mellark, to be my husband, I will forever take care of you, protect you, help you through your struggles in life and share the good time in your life with you. My love for you will go on forever, it will never ever stop and I will forever be by you side. With this ring, I thee wed" I say, I place his ring onto his ring finger. The priest  then says,

"Peeta, do you take Katniss to be your lawfully wedded wife?"

"I do" Peeta replies. The priest then turns to me and says,

"Katniss, do you take Peeta to be your lawfully wedded husband?"

"I do"

"I now pronounce you husband and wife, you may now kiss the bide" We walk closer together, the happiest we have ever been,  We both lean in to share a small but beautiful kiss. Everyone begins to clap.
