Why This Must Be Read:
This is a long one-shot, and written so beautifully. It takes its time getting Katniss and Peeta to their happy ending, winding all these important little moments together to tell the story of their lives after they return to Twelve.
And he doubts she'll ever apologise for what happened, for the way she faked her feelings, bounced back and forth between he and Gale, refused to admit any kind of affection for him for so long. She doesn't need to apologise, and she won't, because Katniss doesn't really use words.
His father used to call him a man of words. If he is, that makes Katniss a woman of ways.
It's in what she does, not what she says. He wouldn't have her any other way.
