    Summary

    Post-Mockingjay. Peeta reaches a breaking point and finally confronts Katniss. A pivotal point in their relationship that will decide where they stand from here on out.

    "I need to get a grip before I do something really stupid, but the unending silence that stretches between us feels more like a waiting game than a comfort. A standoff between hunter and prey, but who is playing which part is still unclear. Was it always like this? Did she always make my pulse trip in unease? Or was it nervous anticipation? I don’t know."

    Summary

    Peeta is full aware that he sounds like something terrified. Something deranged, but Katniss nods firmly.

    “I believe you," She whispers. "I believe you. But it's all stopped. We're safe, sweetheart, I promise.”

    His voice cracks when he next speaks.

    “I can't go back to them again.”

    Katniss brings her head forward so her forehead rests against his, and all Peeta can think is that she can’t possibly be comfortable in that position; leaning up into his shaking frame with her hands still warm and steady against his jaw.

    “I will never let that happen.”

     

    Alternatively:

    In which Peeta Mellark doesn't want Katniss to see just how badly he's holding up until everything eventually comes crashing down on him. A sequel to "all the version of me dead (and buried in the yard outside)"

    Summary

    They’re in his bathroom. Peeta has set Katniss down on the edge of the counter and now she watches him as leans forward to check the temperature of the bath.

    The girl on fire is still trembling from the cold, and when she catches sight of herself in the mirror, she sees near-blue lips and haunted eyes, blood smeared across her cheekbones and hands. She looks like something insane, something feral.

    She stands there before Peeta, suddenly self conscious about the way she must look under his gaze. Her skin looks as if it’s been stretched over her bones, Katniss Everdeen is gaunt, sinewy , rough at the edges, and she’s healed wrong so many times in the past few years that her body is a patchwork of old fractures and burns that are still slightly pink.

    Katniss wonders how Peeta can even recognise her like this. 

     

    Based on the prompt:

    Could you write a oneshot AU type thing where when Peeta comes back to Twelve after the war, instead of planting primroses or maybe after he plants them, he takes Katniss upstairs and gives her a long bath and washes her body for her. A bit more of an intimate parallel to her bathing him in their first games?
