After All of These Years
*I own nothing…but I'd gladly own Peeta :), but never Gale, can't stand him. Sorry Gale Lovers! I'm team Peeta all the way :P
A Peacekeeper walked over to the dark prison cell and peered inside of it. A sneer crept up on his face as he saw the limp body cowering in the corner. The Peacekeeper placed his hands on the bars of the cell and shook violently, trying to wake the prisoner up. The prisoner raised his head and looked tiredly at the person awaking him.
The man recognized the Peacekeeper's uniform and scrambled to get up. He shuffled over to the bars and clasped onto them. "Are you here to let me go?"
The Peacekeeper let out a cruel laugh "No, I was sent here to give you good news"
"What's it about?" The prisoner asked softly, he knew he shouldn't get excited, this news could be the complete opposite of good. And he could tell that it was just by the sick smile playing on the Peacekeeper's face.
"Your family" The man's face paled
He rattled the bars anxiously "What happened? Are they okay?"
"Well… some of them" The look on the Peacekeeper's face made the man sick to his stomach
"What do you mean?"
"Your eldest daughter volunteered to be tribute for the 74th Hunger Games" The Peacekeeper sneered
"No" The man whispered, his eyes wide, his skin as white as a sheet. "Why did she volunteer?" His voice was quiet, but the Peacekeeper had no difficulty hearing him.
"It seems that first your youngest daughter was picked, and then she stepped in" The Peacekeeper let out a laugh. "How, pathetic!" He exclaimed as he stalked off, chuckling to himself.
The prisoner sunk to the floor, tears spilling out of his grey eyes. "Oh, Katniss, please don't die"
