17. The Power of Love

The anthem starts to play, I steadily open my eyes and watch the faces of those we have lost today flicker up in front of my face. I see the people, who I had only met a few weeks ago. I try to imagine how their families must be feeling. I can't let my family go through that. Otillie's face flickers up. I flashback to her final moment.I keep telling myself there was nothing I could have done, but I feel like it's my fault. She was 12! Laurels sweet little face comes up. I don't feel as guilty for her death, but I would give anything to have her back. Winnows comes and I can't remember any moments. I don't want to remember her. When I do, I see her being killed at the start of the games. Winnow, the girl who didn't even make the start of the games. Other faces are displayed. Then the anthem finishes and the sky returns to it's normal black self. 

"I counted 13, what about you?" I ask Gale

"Yes, 14"  I know that he can see what I'm thinking. "It wasn't your fault, you know"

I nod

"It's them" he gestures to the sky "the game makers" I know he's getting angry. 

"Calm down" I say 

"I can't they're innocent people who died today, all 13 of them" 

"And there's nothing we can do! All of them were brave, until the end." 

"They think they can kill all the districts off, so that they'll have a good life. But I'd like to see them try" He's shouting now "I want to stand up for those 13 people today, I want to keep the rest of us safe, especially you"

We stare into each other's eyes. I don't know what to say. I lean in to kiss him, but he leans back. 

"I can't Cassidy" 

I stare in disbelief. I don't say a word.

"It wouldn't be fair on Katniss"

"You don't get it do you?" I shout "We're never going to get out of here, so it doesn't matter anyway. Katniss knows it to."

"I'm sorry, I can't afford to think like that" 

"She's never properly loved you, she loved Peeta, you're second choice!"

I see he's hurt, but I'm glad. I jump of the tree onto the ground and walk away.

I don't look back.
