Oh dear. I'm writing a story after midnight again. Curse my insomnia on a school night. Anyway, it's going to be an Annie/Finnick, Katniss/Peeta and Johanna/Gale. There may be some Effie/Haymitch along with it, because they are so cute. Takes place post-Mockingjay. Finnick didn't die, because honestly, why would she kill him? Why couldn't she kill Gale or something, I mean I like him more now but still. Anyway, moving on. It's a couple months after the rebellion and Annie isn't pregnant yet. It's about the Capitol Games. I'll be having a SYOT for this. It'll have more detail in the bottom AN. Enjoy!:)
Oh and basically, this is gonna have some scenes that are little more mature than other. No straight up graphic details, but it's The Hunger Games. It's gonna be mature. This has some parts that should be rated R, and if I get to one of those scenes I will tell you beforehand and give you a summary at the end if you don't wanna corrupt your mind, because yes, there will be some scenes you may not wanna read. I will write in Johanna's P.O.V. and thoughts will go through her head during her and Gale scenes, I mean, it's Johanna. Anyway read my friends, read like you've never read before.
I smiled softly as I looked at his sleeping face. He looked so peaceful, it'd been a long time since I'd seen him peaceful; our wedding night to be exact. I ran my fingers through his hair and smiled.
He was beautiful, he was perfect, he was mine and I didn't have to share him anymore. I was so happy that I didn't have to worry about all the people he was being sold to in the Capitol anymore. So glad that it was all over and I still had him.
So many lives were lost in the rebellion, so many innocent lives. So many people were destroyed, but left alive. Peeta was completely changed and it killed Katniss. We had slowly become friends over the last two months and she confided in me many nights. She told me she just wanted him to hold her again, she just wanted to know that she was safe and only he made her feel that way.
I sighed. I was so happy that Finnick was still the same, but I was so crushed for Katniss. She lost so much, it wasn't fair for someone her age.
Finnick groaned bringing me back to the present. He opened his beautiful eyes and looked at me. "Good morning." He said softly, sitting up and joining me against the headboard.
"Good morning." I replied with a warm smile.
"How long have you been awake?" He asked as he pushed a piece of my hair behind my ear.
"Awhile." I looked down. "I had another nightmare."
He pulled me into his arms and held me. "You should've woke me up."
"I was okay." I smiled and cuddled into him. "You looked so peaceful. I didn't want to disturb that."
"I was dreaming about you."
"Yes. We were on the beach and you looked absolutely beautiful. Of course, you always do."
I blushed. "Thank you."
"You're an Odair now." He grinned cockily. "You're going to have to get used to compliments."
I giggled. "You're always going to make me blush Finnick."
We slowly got up and got dressed for the day. He went to check the news while I went to make breakfast. I decided on waffles and bacon. I've discovered that I really like bacon.
After Finnick had decided the news was boring he poured us both a cup of coffee, but didn't put as many sugar cubes in mine as he did his own. I smiled and he kissed my temple. After we finished breakfast the phone rang. He went to answer it.
"Haymitch. How are you?" He said into it. I smiled thinking of our drunken friend. "Wait, what?" He looked worried. He glanced at me. "Of course. We'll be there." He paused to let Haymitch reply. "No, it's understandable. We're required to be there." He sighed. "No, we don't have to like it. I don't mind honestly." He closed his eyes. "I figured as much. They won't know anything." There was a long pause. "Alright. Remember, alcohol's on you." He laughed lightly. "Goodbye Haymitch."
I was worried. I watched him and could tell he wasn't happy. So, when he finally looked at me all I did was raise an eyebrow.
"The Capitol Games are starting soon. The reapings are next week." He said. "We have to go to the Capitol." He was the one of the few who didn't still treat me like a baby.
I felt the tears forming. "I don't want to go."
"I know," he said softly wrapping his arms around me. "I don't either. We can run away if you'd like. I wouldn't mind."
"We can't," I murmured. "I can't leave Katniss right now. Peeta is avoiding her again, he had a really bad attack."
He sighed and kissed the top of my head. "You don't have to watch these games."
"I can get you out of mentoring."
"I'll be okay, I promise. I want to do my part, if people are going to believe I'm getting better I have to participate." I smiled. "I'm just as sane as you now, I don't have the flashbacks that takeover and pull me away. Just the nightmares."
"I'm so glad you're better Annie." He kissed my forehead. "I was so lost during your flashbacks. I just wanted to figure out how to fix you, but I knew I couldn't. I love you so much, I have for a long time. I'm so glad I have you."
I blushed and closed my eyes. "Finnick, I love you more than you know. If it wasn't for you, I'd still have the flashbacks. I'd probably live in a flashback."
He kissed me lightly before we went back to just holding each other.
"Everything will be okay. Somehow." He broke the silence, even though, we both knew he was lying.
"I know." I replied, knowing this was not going to be okay.
Okay, first chapter was a tad bit fluffy. It'll get more Hunger Gamesish later. The next chapter will be Katniss's POV of finding out when the games are.
So here's the deal on the SYOT:
We all know some of the more important Capitol people. Snow has a granddaughter(Johanna mentioned it in Mockingjay) but I'm not sure about the others. If you'd like to come up with someone for this let me know. I'm doing Snow's granddaughter since I already have her planned out; my friend is doing her little brother. If you're interested in this please send in their name, age, who they're related to, what they look like, skills you'd like them to have, interesting facts, things like that. I'll have questions for sponsor points. This is a first come first serve process, I can't promise you'll get the relative you ask for! I may take two people if you'd like I'll even take two relatives for one person depending on if you and the other person are okay with it, or if you want to submit siblings for someone that works too. If you just want the tribute to die let me know, because I have plans for these games to last a while so not many will die in the beginning. Thanks for reading! Sorry for the long AN!
P.S. As you'll read in the opening A/N of the next chapter, I'll be uploading the first three together because they all go hand in hand. I write at night, on my iPod so chapters may come multiple in a day, but mainly only on weekends. I'll explain posting schedule in the 3rd chapter, along with the formatting for SYOT stuff:)
