1. What Have I done

I had heard the explosion as I was building the first fire as instructed by Katniss when I heard the rustling of the dry leaves in front of me. Expecting it to be Katniss I looked up, and my heart sank when I saw it was Peeta, the fake lover boy. “Is Katniss here?”, he asked. “No, she went to run some errands for me,” I said back hoping he would be quiet and leave me alone. “Do you know how long she will be?” he asked much to my disgust. “No, and she doesn’t want to see you, you are pretending to be in love with her so that you can get close to her, so than you can use her only to end up killing her!” I yelled back furiously. “Jeez, calm down I was just asking,” he said back. Before I knew what I was doing I was pulling out my knife and in the same instance I lunged at his heart, killing him instantly. I wish he died quietly, he let out the biggest scream I have heard, now Katniss is going to come back for sure. I have to find a way to get rid of his body, and light the rest of the fires before she gets back so she doesn't suspect anything. And quickly too. My first thought is that I should drag his body to the nearby river which is on the way to where we agreed to light the second fire. “Yes, that’s what I’ll do do,” I mumble to myself hoping that no one, especially no one in the capitol could hear. How should I approach this? I think I will try dragging him feet first, I'm pretty sure that’s the easiest option. I had been dragging Peeta’s quickly decaying body for what felt like miles when my arms started to ache. I turned around and chuckled, I had only walked about 10 metres. This is too hard, surely there is a better way. Ahah, I know I will just hide him in the bushes then go and light the next 2 fires and then deal with him later. “Rue”, Katniss’ voice seems to come out from nowhere. I stand there paralysed, dammit why can’t I move? “Rue,” Katniss sounds distressed and a lot closer. “Katniss?” I say quietly, secretly hoping that she won’t hear. “Rue, oh my gosh are you okay? I heard sc…Oh. My. God. What did you do?!” She yells at me running over to Peeta. “Katniss, I’m so sorry, I don’t know what came over me I” “I don’t care what the hell you did Rue, I thought we were allies!” Katniss interrupted. I tried so hard to plead with her but she just wouldn’t listen, she was constantly interrupting me and it was really starting to annoy me. “KATNISS JUST LET ME SPEAK,” I yell at her during the middle of her rant. “No Rue, you don’t deserve to be heard, you just killed the love of my life, even if his love was fake, mine was real,” she said in a very enraged tone I started to walk towards her so that she would be quiet and listen to me, but as I did she raised her arrow. “No Katniss please, I am so sorry, please don’t hurt me,” I pleaded with my shaking voice and glassy eyes. The pleading didn’t help, she drew her arrow as far back as it could go, “Goodbye Rue, rot in hell,” I heard the twang of the arrow being released from the bow, and then there was nothing.
