Johanna/Gale

Come on skinny love, just last the year
Pour a little salt, we were never here
My my my. My my my. My my.
Do want.

gale/katniss

"did you love me?"
"yes. especially now."
after, after; gale/katniss; pg-13

After Prim dies, after a time of mourning, of forgiving, she goes to him.

He's still as handsome as when he was young and she's nothing and everything like the girl from before.

She stares at him for a long moment, and then smiles, holding out her arms.

He hugs her, pulling her close, breathing her in, and she lets herself relax, lets herself fall against him, into him.

"I've missed you," she wishes, because she can say things like that, now, in the space between one breath and the next, when he's holding her as though they're young, again.

He's quiet. When he responds, it's almost contemplative, though the words are simple. "You, too, Catnip."

She pulls away and smiles at him, properly. "You're leaving," she says, then, because she can see it in his eyes.

He nods, looking down. "I just - I can't be here. Not with -"

"Peeta," she says, because she remembers, too, remembers a time with Gale. "I -" she starts, but the time for apologies is long past, and so she simply falls silent.

"I just have a question. Can you answer me that?"

She nods, and they're still standing so close, a breath's length apart.

"Did you love me?" This is soft, the question of a child, of someone who hasn't seen as much as Gale has; but she understands why he has to ask, gets that he needs this.

She does, too.

"Yes," she says, and the words spill from her mouth without her involvement, "I did, I loved you, Gale. Love you still, can't see that stopping - but - Peeta - he just -" and she cuts herself off, shaking her head, sharp.

He smiles, then, and it seems more real. "I know."

And when he leaves, it doesn't hurt.
prim, johanna, phoenix
cashmere/gloss. our hands rest together like pieces of paper but they're always blank.
annie,

I went down to the river,
I set down on the bank.
I tried to think but couldn't,
So I jumped in and sank
katniss, prim If you have a sister and she dies, do you stop saying you have one? Or are you always a sister, even when the other half of the equation is gone?
i can't even. ALL THE FEELINGS.
