Tenth chapter! Ooh what will Prim say? This story will soon be ending so i want more reviews! Come on get those fingers on their keyboards! Oh and i apologise already for the shortness of this chapter!


CHAPTER TEN
Katniss' POV

"KATNISS!" screeched Prim running into my arms, with her still attached to me i managed to waddle into the living room

"Hey little duck,"

"Why are you here Katniss?" she asked very seriously

"Cant i come see my adorable little sister?"

"Well yes, but we both know why you're here!"

"And why is that little duck?"

"Because Cato said the L word,"

"How do you know that?"

"Clove called and explained that you ran off, probably to come here,"

"Oh..."

"Katniss," she said as we sat down on the couch "I know that Peeta was better, but you can't stay like this forever, you have to move on, I'm not saying you should forget him because you just can't! But there is something else I know, i know that Cato really does love you! So after this month I want you to enrol in college, do something you want to do, get your life back on track. Sometimes Kat, you have to show a little weakness to be strong," she took a deep breath, i had to admit she was smart even though she was four years younger "What is it you're afraid of Katniss?"

"I just don't want him or me or anybody else to get hurt,"

"I know he's hurt you in the past, but i think he means it this time,"

"You mean like he did in the hospital?" i retorted, that meant nothing to me now, after all he packed up and left after that

"No, not like the hospital. He means it Katniss. I just know it."

"I believe you little duck but-"

"No buts, you can stay here for tonight but you HAVE to go back tomorrow!"

"Since when has my little sister got so damn bossy?" i laughed

"Since she turned fourteen!" she smiled back


Cato's POV


A night of endless nights. Tossing and turning. Thinking and more thinking. She was probably with Prim even though i wanted her here. What if she doesn't love me? What if I was stupid to confess to her everything I feel?

Katniss come home.


In the morning...


I head over to Clove and Glimmer's apartment, they haven't heard anything from Katniss, I'm getting worried.

"Worried about her lover boy?" asked Glimmer slurping her coffee loudly

"Yes." i admit

"You really do love her, don't you?" said Clove passing me a mug

"I do." i say taking it from her small hands and drinking some of the hot liquid inside

"She'll be back," said Glimmer "She's always back," i just nodded, no words would come out

"You know when she saw you at the dance that first time, she was devastated but she stayed strong, but that second time after you told her you loved her, when you broke up with her, she broke down. She's seen what love can do to her mother, she endured Peeta for so long and now she's afraid. Give her time," said Clove drinking some of her own coffee. She was right but time was too long. I needed her in my arms, i needed to smell the forest in her hair, i needed her warmth surrounding me.

I needed Katniss.


Lunch time...


I headed back to my apartment to play video games with the guys for a bit. It would keep my mind at rest for a bit.

"Starving," said Finnick blasting some dude with his gun

"Same here," said Gale

"I'll see who's we're eating at," i sat putting the controller down and making my way out of the apartment and into the hall.

BAM!

I bumped into something.

And that something was Katniss.


SORRY for the shortness :( What do you think? Reviews please! One more chapter then an epilogue! Head over to Rebellion my other story about Katniss at a camp for social outcasts and rebels like her. When she gets there she discovers that she is the only girl... oh joy!
