11. Comfort from an unexpected source

I narrowly miss his head, the arrow punctures the shoulder of a man standing nearby. He yelps and I run. I keep running, until I'm back at the penthouse. I run into my room crying silently, ignoring everyone, throw my head into my pillow and cry for what seems like hours. Katniss walk in later carrying a tray of food.

"He'll be fine" she says. I look up. "The game maker you shot with the arrow, he's going to be fine, and just so you know, I would have done exactly the same thing." 

It's like she understands, I feel really safe. She hugs me like a mother hugging their child. I feel like we have overcome our differences. 

"I've blown it haven't I, they'll be looking for an oppertunity to kill me the moment I enter the arena"

"No, they want a good show, they wont kill you, you're important part of the games" she replies softly

"I don't want to be part of the games" I cry "At least if Laila had been in the games they might have spared her for a little longer."

She nods.

"I want you down bright and early tomorrow, I've planned something for your last day"

"Whats about Gale" I ask

"Oh, well me and him" she stops "he wants to end it, he doesn't want me to get too attached, he doesn't believe he can win" She starts to cry "I want it all to end, I can't lose everything, I've lost everything once and I don't want it to happen again"

I know she's talking about Peeta.

She clutched my hands "Peeta meant the world to me, now you go into that arena and knock em dead, for him" I know she's trying to hold back her tears, she wants me to be strong. But I can't in two days I'm going to lose everything. My family, my friends and my life
