A/N: I know,I know. I have like 6 million stories to update. But I think this might be a nice change of pace. Something different,something with the kids. I haven't written anything with Adara or Orion in it in forever,and I seriously miss them. So,here we go. Another story for me to worry about. Oye Vey,what am I getting myself into...
"Kat,stop pacing,please? Just calm down."
"Calm down? You want me to calm down,Peeta! I might be pregnant again thanks to you!" Katniss snapped. This is bad. We agreed after Orion was born we wouldn't have any more kids. I knew how bad Katniss felt when she was pregnant,actually if we weren't careful,it could be dangerous. The Games and the war had apparently taken more of a toll on her body then either of us had thought. Her doctor told us repeatedly while she was pregnant with Adara and Orion that over exerting herself could,well...I don't exactly like thinking about it. Lets just say,things could go from bad to worse in a matter of seconds.
"Katniss,it's not my fault the condom broke. I'm sorry,ok?" I asked,trying to be sympathetic. It was obvious she was terrified,and I know she didn't want it to show. She had tears in her eyes.
"I know...it's just...I'm scared." Her voice broke at the end of her sentence. I stepped closer and wrapped my arms around her.
"It;s ok,Kat. I got you...I got you." I whispered,running my fingers through her hair. She cried into my shoulder and I tried to comfort her until the timer went off. When it did,she pulled back and I wiped her eyes gently with my finger.
"Can you check it?" She whispered. I nodded and kissed her forehead,going back into the bathroom,leaving her where we were standing in the doorway.
Sure enough,there were 2 distinct lines. Katniss was pregnant again. I turned back toward the door.
"It's positive,isn't it?" she whispered,tucking her hair behind her ear. My hands fell to my sides.
"I'm sorry,Kat." I whispered. This time it was me who broke down crying. I fell against the door and slid down to the floor. I felt responsible,and completely powerless. Katniss and the kids,if there was anything they couldn't fix themselves,I was always the one they turned to. But this was something I knew I couldn't fix.
"Peeta...it's...it's ok. We can figure it out..." I whispered,sitting down next to Peeta on the bathroom floor.
"I'm just worried about you. I can't risk loosing you again." His voice broke as he talked,making it harder and hared to understand him.
"I'm not going anywhere,Peeta." I squeezed his hand "I promise."
"But Katn-" I kissed him mid sentence. When I pulled back I looked him directly in the eye. "I promise. He sighed and wiped his eyes with his shirt sleeve.
"We better get going,if we're going to pick the kids up from school on time." I stood up and pulled him up with me. Before I let him leave the bathroom,I pulled him into a deep kiss.
When we got outside and in the car,Peeta looked over at me from the drivers side and took my hand in his.
"You still love me. Real or not real?" He asked. I looked in his worried eyes and told him, "real. Always." and kissed him one more time before we picked the kids up.
A/N: So,what do you think? Kinda short,I know. But I think I actually managed something super emotional for a change. Please,please,please tell me what you think! (:
