AU of Katniss and Peeta’s daughter. (Teacher’s POV)
I call the little girl to the front before she left for the day. I had things to discuss with her about her most recent assignment… It was suppose to be fun, a small essay about the kids fictional heros. Like a superhero, or something like that. But this little girl, she refused to turn her small one page essay in. She sits at the chair by my desk, setting her bag on the floor and tugging at one of her braids. I lean in, “May I ask why I didn’t get an assignment from you today? The essay?”
She shakes her head, “I can’t write it.”
My brow furrows, “And why not? It was suppose to be fun, writing about your fictional hero…”
Her bright blue eyes look up at me, “I only have two heroes, and they aren’t fictional.”
My eyes widen at the little girl’s words, “What do you mean?”
She smiles, a bright white one. The type that could charm anyone. “My parents did more then any superhero could miss. They saved the world in a different way! A better way. They are my only heroes.”
I sit there stunned. What could I say to that? The little brunette with two braids hops to her feet, grabbing her bag. “They played the games Ma’am! And they are the best! Better then any super hero!”
The little girl runs out of the room, her hair flying through the wind as she goes. Hair and confidence like her mother. Eyes and charm like her father.
She was a Mellark, no doubt.
