I open my eyes and yawn. And that's when I discover that Cato is next to me. I never left his room last night. His arms holds a protective grip on me. I hear the door open and then a horrified scream.
"What do you two really think you are doing?"
Cato wakes up and I sit up in the bed when his arms fall off me. He sits upp too.
It's Tryffina standing there in the doorway.
"Uh..." I get out.
"Tryffin... n ... na", Cato yawn.
"Come here Clove", Tryffina mills.
I obey her without any hesitation.
"Forgive us Tryffina", I say.
"Oh well, now into your room and dress modestly before breakfast and the arrival to the Capitol", Tryffina says patiently.
When I hurry away, I almost run.
I come into my room and take out a pair of black jeans and a white blouse. I brush my hair and put it up in a pony tail.
When I come to breakfast half an hour later, everyone is already there.
I can see at Adam and Skylie that they know what happened this morning. I swallow hard, sits down on a chair next to Cato and wait for Adam and Skylie to start yell at us.
But they don't.
I eat a little iffy on a piece of bread and drink a hot sweet liquid that Skylie told me is called hot chocolate. It's so quiet around the table, almost an embarrassed silent, as if I had confessed a crime before a judge.
"Oh, we're here", I hear Tryffina say.
I turn around and look out of the window. Yep we are. I go up to the window to get a better view. So beautiful.
How would my life look like if I had been born in the Capitol instead of District 2. I just know that I'm glad I was born where I was, because otherwise I would never have met the guy who now comes and stands beside me.
