Disclaimer: I don't own the Hunger Games or the song happy birthday. :(
A/N: this is the sequel to my story The Rebellion. I would suggest reading that one first because this one is not going to make any sense. :)
I woke up at 5:00 in the morning. I looked down at the girl in my arms. Katniss Everdeen. I kissed her forehead and got dressed.
I walked out the door and threw the victors village. I walked to town, I own the bakery. A lot have happened in the past four months. The town was really coming along, all of the people from 12 (except Gale. We think he moved to district 2) and a few from other districts have come. They have rebuilt the town and shut down almost all the mines.
Today was a pretty slow day. I made bread and frosted some cakes. Tomorrow is Rue's birthday so I made her a cake. Finally at 3 I start walking home.
I walk in to Clove and Katniss sitting on the couch watching some soap-opera they are opposed with at the time. "Don't let her go Alfredo!" they screamed simultaneously at the tv. I chuckled and Clove threw a pillow at me. It hit me square in the face. "Go bother Cato!" she screamed. She was now eight months pregnant and her mood-swings were as bad as ever.
I walked into the kitchen to see Cato looking threw the knives. Clove isn't aloud to handle knifes since the last time she had one she almost killed Marvel. "What are you doing?" I asked.
"I'm going to scare the girls" he said not turning around. He picked up a large knife. "Perfect" he said with his killer smile plastered on his face.
"How are you going to do that?" I asked a bit scared.
"Throw a knife at them"
"Clove will kill you"
"She would never hurt me. Besides she wouldn't be able to catch me"
"Please. Clove is way to smart for you. She'll probably chase you around and then pretend the baby's hurt. Then you being you would run right to her and she'll kill you"
"I hate it when your right" Cato said and put down the knife.
"How did you purpose to Clove?" I asked after a few moments of silence.
Cato smiled. He twirled a smaller knife threw his fingers. "Two days before the reaping I took Clove to a meadow, our special place, and asked her to marry me."
"That's it?" I asked.
"That's it" he said still smiling and twirling the knife. "Why?"
Crap. I didn't think he would ask that. "Umm..."
"Oh... I'll leave you to it then" Cato smiled. "I'd take her to the house by the lake" Cato said and walked out of the room. A few minuets later I heard the door open and close.
Katniss walked into the kitchen. "How was work?" she asked.
"Fine. Do you want to come into the woods with me?" I asked her. We were aloud to go into and hunt in the woods.
"Yes" she said excitedly. I grabbed her hand and walked out of the house. I lead her to the abandoned house by the lake.
I stopped and got down on one knee and took the velvet box out of my pocket. "Katniss Everdeen I have loved you since the first moment I saw you when we were five. I was heartbroken when we had to go into the games together. When you agreed to be my girlfriend I was the happiest man on earth. Katniss Nicole Everdeen will you marry me?"
"Yes, Peeta I will marry you" she said and kissed me. I slipped the ring on her finger and we walked back to the victors village.
It's finally my birthday. Lucky number 13! Ok 13 isn't a luck number, but I'm surprised I lived this long considering I was reaped. I opened my eyes to see Rueben, Clove, Cato, my four little sisters, my parents, Katniss, Finch, Marvel, Peeta, Prim and Siera surrounding my bed. They all started singing happy birthday. (you all know the happy birthday song I'm not putting the lyrics!)
We had a party. Half of the district came. I spent most of the party hanging out with Ruben, Prim, Siera, Vick, and Rory. It was really fun.
After the party Ruben walked me up to my room. He's been acting really awkward around me. We reached my bedroom door and Ruben leaned down and kissed me. It was a light peck on the lips, but still a kiss! My heart started beating a thousand miles per minuet. "I'm sorry" Ruben said and tried to run away.
I grabbed his wrist and I kissed him. It was as short as the first. "So..." I said trying to give him a hint.
"Will you be my girlfriend?" he asked. He his smart.
"Of coarse" I said smiling.
He smiled. "Goodnight and Happy Birthday" he said kissed me and walked away.
"Goodnight" I called after him. I fell asleep dreamed of my first kiss.
A/N: Thank you to all the people who reviewed on my last story and convinced me to write this one! If you have a better title please comment of pm me. I hate this title. Rue's party was random. Rue's first kiss was with Ruben! So cute! KATPEE! Peeta and Katniss are engaged. Yay! Please review!
YOU ARE ALL STILL AWSOME!
