26. Chapter 26

Cato's POV

What the hell is wrong with her dad? He never even gave me a chance. It's not like he cares about Clove,anyway."Your dad is fucked up."

"No shit, Sherlock." Clove rolls her eyes.

"You know, it just occurred to me that you have a mouth on you."

"You just figured that out?"

"Yeah, do you have a problem with that?"

"In fact, I do." Clove stops. She turns toward me. She isn't mad at me. She is just going to tease me. She pulls out a knife with a long,curved blade. Kind of like the one she used to kill Katniss."I do have a problem with it." She steps toward me, swinging her knife around." And Cato Hawks isn't going to do a thing about it. Am I right? The cockiest bitch in District Two is going to let me slice his finger,like this." Clove cuts me finger. She's playing around with me. The cut she makes is shallow, trying not to hurt me.

"Yes, I'm the cockiest bitch in District Two. I'm pretty sure when we first met, you were the cockiest bitch in District Two."

"Still am. There is only room for one of us here."

"If there is only room for one, I guess you'll have to find somewhere new to live."

"Why me?"

"I lived here first."

"Damn it."

"Wait, what?"

"You are older. I forgot."

"You don't even know my birthday."

"How old are you?"


"I'm only eighteen."

"Wait, you were seventeen when you went into the first Hunger Games?"

"You didn't know that?"

"Since you volunteered, I thought you were eighteen."

"I was just better than all of them."

"Damn, I can't believe I didn't know that."

"It isn't an issue, is it?"

"No, I just feel dumb."

"It's a clue."

"What's a clue?"

"If you feel dumb, you probably are dumb."


Clove smiles and starts walking. It's late. The Careers in training usually are just starting to come out about now. I should know."You coming,Cato?" Clove asks as I kick rocks.

"Yeah, I'm just happy to be home."

"Me too. I think we'll be living next to Ariel though."

"Great. She reminds me of Glimmer."

"That bitch."

"And Luna."

"Cato, stop. If you keep talking, I  might kill you. The urge to kill is increasing."

"We could go night hunting."

"Let's go right now."

"I don't have a sword-"

"Oh,shut up." Clove turned to me and lifted up my shirt."Liar." Of course I had a sword. I smiled and she pulled out knives.

"We could get in trouble for this. Since we are 'experienced killers' now."

"First of all, we've always been 'experienced'. I killed my cat when I was four. It all went uphill from then. Second of all, when did you care about getting it trouble?"

"Never. What if you got hurt-"

"Me, get hurt? Yeah, do you know how many people have succeeded at giving me pain. Hmm, Thresh,you, and the Capitol."

"Five. She stabbed you."

"Ok, so three people and one nation. Five only hurt me because I couldn't see straight and Thresh because he was five times bigger than me. I let you and then the Capitol has a lot of power."

"Ok, I get it."

"Not even a previous victor could hurt me. Cashmere didn't. She tried, but failed."

"I get it,Clove. Let's go."

Clove's POV

Yes, we are going night hunting! Before the Games I used to go with  Jeff. Jeff was always loud and he couldn't kill anyone, unlike Cato. Cato is the greatest hunting partner. Not only because he is very handsome, but because he is quiet and skilled. I shake my head. I never think like this. Yeah, I think Cato is very handsome, but I never flood my brain with it. Damn, I'm turning into a normal person.

"Clove, you coming?" Cato asks. He has his sword drawn and his eyebrow is raised.

"Yeah, sorry." I shake my head once more. I look into his blue eyes. He is just so-. Stop Clove! He is your boyfriend and all, but you need to think like a killer not a normal girl."Stop it,Clove." I mutter to myself.

"Stop what?" Curse Cato's great hearing.

"Nothing. Nothing."

"Oh, yeah, like I believe that."

"It is nothing,Cato."

"Clovely,don't lie to me."

"Tell you later. Let's go. I need to kill someone and right now, you are closest."

"You walk in front." Cato looks down. He doesn't like to let me lead things, but he also doesn't want a knife in his back.

"Ok." I walk quietly along the quiet houses. I start to make my way towards the industrial area. I turn around and Cato is gone."Cato?" I whisper. This reminds me of the Games. It's just, Cato never left me.

"Cato?" I retrace my footsteps. I hear a noise and what sounds like a collar."Cato?"

I peak around a corner. I see Cato n the ground with our dog Carvel. In no way, shape or form is he named after Marvel.

"Look who I found." Cato laughs as Carvel licks his face.

"What is he doing out here?" I ask Cato. Carvel runs over to me."Carvel! I missed you so much boy." I hug Carvel as he wags his tail and licks my face.

"Who knows? Probably got lonely so he returned to the streets. Seems well fed."

"Carvel knows how to take care of himself. Looks like he got in a few fights."

"That a boy." Cato picks Carvel up. Carvel is a big dog. If he stands on his hind legs he is about my height. He is black and brown and has a short tail. He is a killer. Brutal and  mean are the two best words for him. We found him one night while out hunting. He likes no one but us. Really, the dog matches our personalities. "You want to go hunting?" Cato asks the dog. Carvel jumps up and down.

"He says yes. Wonder if he got any kills while we were away."

"I'd say he did. His right paw is bleeding. Looks like he got stabbed."

"Here." I cut away a piece of fabric and hand it to Cato. Cato wraps it around his paw. Carvel smiles from ear  to ear."He is happy we are home."

"He is." Cato smiles."Let's go." Cato is different around Carvel. Carvel brings out a soft side in him.

Cato,Carvel, and I began moving again. We come across a group of Careers. Carvel takes off. "Ugh, we need to train him not to do that."

"We really do."Cato laughs.

"Look it is that stupid dog again. Who patched up his leg?" A girl laughs.

"Let's kill him." A boy smirks. I see him raise up a sword and I step out.

"I don't think so." I poise ready to throw.

"And who are you?" The girl gives me a mean glare.

"My name is Clove."


"Most definitely."

"Don't kill the dog. Please, don't kill us. We don't mean trouble. Let's go, Xavier." She grabs the boy and they run into the dark.

"Damn it." I sigh and turn to Cato. Cato is standing behind me laughing his ass off."What is so funny?"

"Nothing." He laughs.

"Come on,Carvel. We're leaving."

"I'm coming. Chill out." Cato stops laughing and follows me. We walk and find nobody. It's like hunting District Five all over again.

I see a fire. I pause. Carvel stops as Cato and I glance at each other. Careers. These are the ones who didn't get put in the Games.They are trying to start a fight with a few other guys. Cato knows the guys they are trying to fight with. I believe they are his good friends."Carvel, stay." Cato says to the dog. He walks and says,"Hey guys. Long time no see."

"Cato! What's up dude?" I hear.

"I'm just doing a little hunting."

"Didn't get enough in the Games?"

"Never to much." I step out and walk toward Cato, Carvel at my side. The people trying to start a fight stop.

"Clove." I find the one Cato is talking to is Grader. Grader is sitting around the fire with Hayden and Payton. It's weird Cato and I have some of the same friends and never met.

"Grader." I nod my head. We've always been good friends.

"Are you guys done with the reunion. We'd like to kill them now." I hear a boy say. I tun my head to find Jeff.

"When did you become the leader of a group?" I ask him.

"When you left me."

"You dumped me dumb-ass."

"Chill out."  Jeff steps forward. Grader, Payton,and Hayden are all good fighters. The taught me how to use an ax. Cato beat them all, so they never got to volunteer. They just laugh as they watch Jeff's little group approach us.

Jeff is now standing right in front of me. Luna is in back of him. Cato is right behind me."How you've been,Clove?" Jeff asks me.

"Great, actual. How about you?"

"Wonderful." Jeff twirls his sword around in my face. 

"Enjoy it while you can."


"Being so wonderful. You'll either be in a hospital bed or in a casket when I'm done with you."

"Oh,Jeffy. Clover over here thinks she can beat you." Luna laughs. She turns to the group and says,"How sweet is th-"

Before she can finish her sentence she collapses, with a knife in her back. I grin. Jeff's eyes are wide now. He can't believe what I just did.
