We’re a team, aren’t we? And I’m so proud of my victors. So proud. You both deserved so much better. I am truly sorry.
#okay can i just talk about this scene #katniss seriously almost killed peeta out of anger #and then she comes and apologizes #even though she still doesn’t really trust him #and he still looks at her like she’s the most beautiful thing he’s ever beheld #and even katniss knows it #because she gives him that unwilling little smile #even now peeta can make her smile #i wonder if peeta’s even planning it now #to sneak off with the careers #not to kill katniss #but to keep them from killing her #even if it means leading them to her snare #when he says see you tomorrow #he’s planning a way to keep her safe #and to do that #he’ll make sure he is near to her #so he will see her tomorrow #alive #even if it results in his death #i can’t believe katniss ever thought he would kill her
“I don’t want you forgetting how different our circumstaces are. If you die, and I live, there’s no life for me at all back in District Twelve. You’re my whole life.” Peeta says. “I would never be happy again. It’s different for you. I’m not saying it wouldn’t be hard. But there are other people who’d make your life worth living.”
“No one really needs me,” he says, and there’s no selfpity in his voice. It’s true his family doesn’t need him. They will mourn him, as will a handfull of friends. But they will get on…. I realise only one person will be damaged beyond repair if Peeta dies. Me.
“I do,” I say. “I need you.”
"Coward," said Hermione, though she looked amused. "Well, it was a bad night for romance all around. Ginny and Dean split up, too, Harry."
Harry thought there was a rather knowing look in her eye as she told him that, but she could not possibly know that his insides were suddenly dancing the conga.
