Back to typing at night on a mobile device. I've come full circle haven't I? Either way, here I am. I know it's been a long time again. I just, I don't know. Life's been rough again. Enough about me, I'm feeling romantic tonight. Have fun readers, it's getting steamy here. Be cautioned, but don't worry. I didn't put too many details. It's not a lemon. And only the first POV.


Annie POV

"Finnick!" I exclaimed as I walked in on him drying off from the shower he had apparently taken.

"Yes, love?" He smiled at me, a very mischievous smile, and tightened his towel slightly.

"You've got to learn to clean up after yourself - the kitchen is a complete mess!" I put my hands on my hips. "You are a grown man."

"Yes, and I plan to. I just needed a shower."

I sighed and shook my head before walking out. I didn't get far before being spun around and pushed against the wall. "You're so sexy when you're scolding me." He whispered softly.

"Oh whatever." I blushed as he trailed kisses up my neck and along my jaw.

"You're always sexy though." He ran his hand up under my shirt and to my breast, eliciting a moan from me. "Tell me, love, how do you feel about spending the day in bed?" He punctuated the question by pinching my nipple.

My only response was another moan and nodding my head wildly. He smirked and lifted me up, as I wrapped my legs around his waist. His lips were on mine, his tongue dancing with mine, within seconds.

His hand traveled under my skirt as I kicked his towel off. I moaned into his mouth as he discovered my lack of underwear. He pulled his mouth from mine. "I love it when you make it so easy for me." He said with another one of his smirks.

"I know, that's why I do." I breathed and tangled my fingers in his hair. "Now are you going to take me or not?"

And with that, he did in fact take me. Against the wall, on the floor and eventually on the bed. I spent the day tangled up in him and the pure ecstasy of his presence.


Katniss POV

"Peeta?" I called out while tentatively knocking on his door.

I hadn't seen him all morning, I was getting really worried. I raised my hand to knock again when I heard a noise. "Peeta?"

"Not now Katniss!" He yelled - he sounded like he was in pain.

"Peeta!" I opened his door and found him curled up on his bed in what seemed to be pure agony.

"Katniss, get out." He screamed without looking at me; I of course didn't listen and instead sat down on the bed with him. Once he looked at me I knew I made a mistake - he was having an attack.

"Peeta, listen to me."

"No! You're a mutt!" He lunged at me and pinned me to the bed.

"Peeta. Not real Peeta." I struggled against him. He grabbed my throat and I squeaked out another "not real." His eyes flickered for a moment before he let go of me and moved off me.

"You should go." He whispered sadly.

"No, come here." I said and cuddled into him. "Just hold me."

He slowly put his arms around me and held me tight. "Katniss." He whispered after a moment.

"Yes, Peeta?"

"I'm so sorry."

"It's not your fault."

"I couldn't stop though. I almost killed you."

"But you didn't."

He didn't say anything, just buried his face in my hair. I nuzzled his neck softly, and felt this warmth in me. Not as much as the fires I've felt for him, but close. I peeked up at him, to find him looking down at me.

"Katniss," he sighed.

"Yes, Peeta?" I whispered.

"Don't hate me." He murmured.

"Why would I ha-" I was cut off by a kiss.

"I'm sorry." He said after he pulled his lips away.

"Don't be." I said as I moved in for a second kiss.

The fire continued to burn more and more as we kissed. It grew until I thought I would turn to ashes.

Upon pulling away he whispered, "so much for our line."


Yay. I finished it. Woohoo! It's short, but hey, it's up.
