Exposure Therapy by optimus-pam reviews
Exposure therapy. That was how Coin justified it. She explained that the ink schedules tattooed on their arms were synchronized because the doctors believed it would help. By exposing Peeta to the subject of his hijacking, it would help him recover. District 13 canon divergence. One shot. Mature.
