29. Heading Home
The train was silent as I sat, snuggled on the couch reading a book.
I was excited about returning home, but I just needed to get my mind off of it before I got too excited.
As I turned the page, Finnick walked into the car where I was.
He came over and leaned over to kiss me gently, the he sat beside me and pulled me to him.
"Hello." I reply, still reading, smiling.
"What are you doing?" He asks.
"Reading." I laugh a little.
Wasn't it obvious what I was doing?
He smiled. "We're almost there you know."
I put the book down. "Dang you Finnick O'Diar, that's why I'm reading. I'm trying not to get too excited." I say.
He chuckles. "I'm sorry babe. I didn't know!"
I sigh. "Gosh."
He laughs and I turn, climbing on top of him.
Smiling, he watches my actions.
"So, how quick did you say you wanted this wedding?" I ask smiling.
"This upcoming week." He says smiling.
I laugh. "Finnick, come on."
"I'm not kidding!" He says smiling. "Are you scared?"
"No, I just don't know how we're going to pull a wedding together that quick." I say.
"Trust me, we can do it." He says leaning up to peckmy lips.
I smile down at him and peck his back.
The train suddenly slowed to a stop and I got off of him. "We're here!"
I started prancing around happily and Mags walked in smiling.
The doors opened and everyone starting clapping and shouting.
I smiled and watched as Adeline ran straight into my arms.
"You're back!!!!" She says.
"Yes Adeline, I'm back." I say happier than ever.
I was home. I was away from that arena that still haunted my dreams. I was away from the Capitol. I was home.
She clung to me and we walked to the town square where they were throwing a party for me.
I was pretty excited and thankful for everyone.
I was glad that I was here and I never wanted to go through what I went through again.
I didn't want anyone to!
We laughed and danced and had a blast together, and I realized how much they had truly missed me.
I was happy, completely happy!
And even though the odd weren't in my favor, they seemed to be as of right now.
I leaned up to kiss Finnick as I watched Adeline dance along with the others.
It was a day I'd remember for as long as I lived....And I wouldn't trade it for anything.......
