15. Chapter 15

Clove's POV

At camp Marvel sat examining his arm. It was obvious he knew nothing about medicine."Thanks a lot Cato." Marvel said, glancing down at his arm.

"You tried to kill her." Cato replied. "You are lucky I didn't kill you."

"It was the tracker jackers."

"Yeah, sure."

"And, Glimmer.She was my best friend."

"Sorry to hear that." I say. I know that if I lost Cato, or if Cato lost me, I'd be the same way.  I had to be a bit sympathetic but, come on, only to a certain point. I sat down. I was exhausted. I wasn't sure why, but I was. So was Cato and Marvel. Must be the stings. Us,being the idiots that we are, let Hermit keep watch. I lay my head down and fall asleep instantly.

"Cato." I wake up."Cato?"

"What? Clove?" He responds. I was cuddled up to Cato's chest.

"How long have we been asleep?" I sat up.

"No clue. Hermit?"

"2 days." Hermit replies.

"Our supplies?They are all still here." Cato acts shocked.

"Marvel and I took turns keeping watch. We tried to wake you guys but you guys didn't move."

"Wow. I did not realize." I said. Cato sat up and put his arm around me."I'm hungry."

Cato hands me a backpack."Take what you want." I take an apple and some crackers and cheese.I hand it back to him."That's it?"

"Yeah. I don't eat a lot."

"I can tell. You sure that is all you want?"

"One-hundred percent."


'Hermit, did anyone die?"

"Yeah, the girls from 1,4, and 7." He replies.

"Who killed 7?"

"Who knows?"

"How is that possible? Lover Boy is still alive. Who cares? He is as good as dead." Cato interrupts.

"Look! Some dumb ass decided to light a fire."

" I bet it's Lover Girl."

"Let's go!"

"Marvel, let's go." Cato kicks him awake. He is up in an instant."Hermit, here."

"Hermit, stay."Marvel intervenes.

"He's coming. We need him in the woods,and his job's done here anyway. No one can touch those supplies." Cato replies,shaking his head at Marvel.

"What about Lover Boy?"

"I keep telling you,forget about him. I know where I cut him. It's a miracle he hasn't bled to death yet. At any rate,he's in no shape to raid us.Come on."

"When we find her, I am going to kill her my own way,and no one interferes. " I say laughing.We race to the smoke. I led them. Cato, Marvel, and Hermit have trouble keeping up with me. I'm half the weight of Cato, and possibly even Marvel, there is no way they can keep up. Cato isn't far behind,but Marvel and Hermit, huff and puff in the distance. I stop."Let's go!" Cato and I allow them to catch up. As soon as they are with us again, we take no time to rest. We finally reach the site of the fire. Nobody."You are kidding right?"

"Marvel. Check the trap." Cato says. Marvel stands still for a second."Now!" He runs and races to the trap Melody set."Let's hunt. I need to kill someone." Cato looks to Hermit. Hermit backs up."You if we find nobody else."

"I'll kill Marvel!" I butt in. Cato laughs.

Then, I hear a huge boom. It sounds like a bomb.

Cato's POV

The boom pierced my ears. I had no clue what had just happened. I look up and saw smoke. It was coming from corn."Let's go." Clove leads our group again. I don't let her get to far ahead. I don't know who is waiting for us. Or what. We reach corn. Our supplies, destroyed. Everything but the backpack Clove has on.Clove and I run to the rubble."You!" I turn to Hermit. "You did this." He turns to run but I grab him. I put him in a headlock. I put my arms around his neck. With a little movement, I snap his neck. The cannon fires.

"Cato. Calm down. The person who did this has to be dead!" Clove grabs me.

"Clove, leave me alone. I don't want to hurt you."

"You won't hurt me. Listen to me. The cannon was probably masked by the sound of the explosion."

"You are right ,Clove."

"Plus, we have my backpack. It is full of food. And we have all our weapons, There are only two of us left to feed."

"Marvel makes three."

"I'm killing him when he is sleeping tonight."

"Clove,you are so sexy."

"Shut up, Cato."


A few minutes later a cannon goes off."Think it is Lover Girl?" Clove asks. She'd kill Marvel if he returned saying he killed Lover Girl.

"Probably not."  I reply. I look at Clove. She is polishing her knives."That makes 8 people left."

"Yeah.You are right."

I grabbed Clove and caressed  her body. "Clove, I love you."

"I love you too, Cato." We slammed our lips together. If Marvel came back right now, I'd kill him. We are interrupted by a cannon.She pulled away."Wonder who that was."

"Don't know. Don't care." I lean in but she stands up. She holds up a parachute."This love thing really works. Maybe Lover Boy knew what he was doing."

As I sat in the golden Cornucopia,I thought about it. The final 7. It's coming down to it. I can't think about the upcoming tribute"s death.Each person who dies means another one closer to the end. So far, it's not looking good. Clove sat on my legs and rested her head on my shoulder.

"Let's see what we got."Clove looked like a kid in a candy store. She opened the package to find cherries. She laughed."Cato, look. Like on the train ride!"

"Thanks Talon. This helps." I reply,trying to hold back my laugh. I couldn't do it. I burst out laughing and look to my right. The hovercraft must of removed Hermit's body because I don't see it.I was to busy kissing Clove.

"Eat this." Clove pops a cherry in my laugh.

"Not poisonous." I sallow.

"If you died like that, I would of killed Talon."

"You already partially  did." I said while I felt something hit my back. Another parachute.This time I open it. It's food."More food."

"Good. We need it." Clove grabs the container and dumps it in her backpack along with the cherries."Look, notes." She pulls a paper out of each one. She reads them aloud."Hopefully these aren't poisonous. Make Cato eat one first.-Talon." We laugh."Stuff your face with food,not each other tongues.-Colin."
