I write this as I go.( in the first person) Enjoy my personal life
Zin's First Birthday
My mother starts to cry and I hand Zin to Peeta and hug her. She's hysterical and asking me questions I cant answer. Then she gets mad. Like MAD mad. She lashes out at Peeta shouting accusations about him being a good for nothing player and that makes ME mad. So I start yelling at my mother about Maybe if she checked in every once in a while she'd know, and Zin's crying uncontrolably. My mom yells "SHUT UP!!" To Haymitch who tries to calm her down and then She hits Peeta in the chest with her fist. I lose it and slap her across the face.
Everybody is frozen and Zin is crying hysterically and Peeta wraps his arms around my shoulders so that I don't freak out. My mom sits in the chair and Zinnia walks over to her and grabs her finger in her fist. My mother laughs and picks her up. Everything that just happened is immediately forgotten because you can't help being calm with Zin. We continue the day as planned. I am snuggled up against Peeta, watching Zin walk across the room. She's chasing a ballon being tossed between Haymitch and my mother. The door bell rings and Peeta goes to answer it. I hear him gasp a little and then a familiar voice asking for me. "I don't think that's a good idea." Peeta says protectively. "Please..." The voice begs. I get up and walk to the door. I freeze in my tracks and gasp, too."Gale."
