12:04 AM

I wake up to the feeling of someone's thumb brushing against my inner thigh. My body stiffens and I instantly swat their hand away.

"Why?" I turned to the boy who was meant to be taking me to Peeta and J.

"I had to find out a way to wake you up." He shrugs.

"Where are we?" I look out the window to see a large white mansion.

"That's not important."

"That seems like your answer to everything." I roll my eyes.

"Yeah. Whatever. Get out of the car." He says and I scoff before doing as he says.

"You could at least try to be polite."

"Polite." He said the word as if it were foreign to him.

"Let me guess, it's not in your vocabulary?" I asked dryly.

"I don't believe so." He says and I simply roll my eyes in response.

I quickly get out of the car and proectively wrap my arms around my self as the cool night air hits my skin. My eyes then briefly find their way up to the starry before I fully focus my attention on the mansion before me.

"So, he's in here?" I ask.

"Yes." The guy responds.

"Follow me." He says and harshly grips onto my forearm.

I wince as the pain from his nails sinking into my skin surges through me and roughly push him away.

"That hurt." I snap.

"Well you didn't seem like you were in any rush to get inside, cupcake." He says angrily and grabs onto my arm again.

"Don't call me cupcake." I narrow my eyes at him and try to pry myself out of his grip, but he's too strong.

"I wouldn't bother fighting if I were you, cupcake." He said.

He brought me up and down the many stair cases and corridors of the mansion until we finally arrived at our destination. We stand in front of a door right at the end of a corridor where the guy who brought me here knocks on the door three times before saying, "It's me boss, I brought the girl."

"Good, enter." A man behind the door said.

I knew that voice as soon as I heard it, it was Peeta's father.

The guy that brought me there then quickly opens the door and shoves me inside.

"Katniss? What a wonderful surprise!" Mr. Mellark exclaims happily, but there is way too much venom laced in his voice for him to decieve me.

"Where's Peeta?" I cross my arms across my chest.

"You say that as if you worry he isn't in good hands." Mr. Mellark pouts and I scowl at him.

The room we were in was set up in a office kind of way and Mr. Mellark sat in a chair behind a large desk wearing casual clothes.

"Just tell me where he is you asswipe!" I say angrily.

"Alright, alright." He puts his hands up in mock surrender.

"But before you go I want you to know how deeply offended I am that you actually think I do anything to harm my son." He said mockinly and I balled my hands into fists.

"Jason, take the girl to the boy." He says to the guy that brought me here.

"Okay." Jason says plainly.

"Katniss, are you sure this is what you want?" Mr. Mellark asks and I nod.

"Okay, Murtle wanted me to get rid of him first, but I guess killing two birds with one stone won't hurt." He grins wickedly.

"Madge set you up to do this?!" I ask angrily.

Mr. Mellark doesn't answer, instead he pretends to zip his lips closed with index finger and thumb. I suddenly feel a pair of strong arms wrapped around me before I'm basically dragged back up the hallway and up some stairs to the very top floor of the masion.

Jason then opens the first door in sight and shoves me inside.

I don't bother yelling at him or anything, instead I focus my full attention on Peeta. He lays to a corner of the room beaten and bruised with blood stained tiles beneath him. His eyes look almost dead and his skin is very pale, a gasp escapes my mouth at the sight of him and my eyes fill with tears.

"Oh my gosh." I bring my hand to my mouth as my lips tremble and the tears escape my eyes.

"K-katniss." He whispers and a smile forms on his lips despite the sadness in his eyes.
