22. Chapter 22

Cato's POV

"Congrats my big victor." I wake up to a womans voice who isn't Clove. I open my eyes to see Enobaria.

"Where's Clove?" I imediately try to sit up but something is holding me down.

"Somebody get these restraints off of him!"

"Is Clove alive?"

"Don't you worry. She is perfectly fine. Her hands look better.'

"What  happened to her hands?All I remember was I sat up and her hands had blood gushing out of them"

"She carved a heart into the. Your name was in the middle."

"I don't get it."

"You were dying and she didn't want to win without you." Brutus interrupts.

"What happened to Colin and Talon?"

"Oh. Just busy." Enobaria replies. Something is wrong. I'm not sure what it is though."Anyway, she is doing a lot better. Both of you would have died if she didn't start to cut her arms."

"She started to cut her arms! Why?"

"We went over this,Cato. Now get some rest."

"No. I want to see Clove."

"You can't see her quite yet. They want to televise your reunion."

"What bullshit. Just let me see her."

"No. Eat. Now." She pushes food into my face. I am starving. I eat a lot and I feel it come up. I throw up into a bucket on the side of my bed."Cato, your stomach is a lot smaller now. You have to eat small amounts."

"Couldn't you of told me that before I ate?"

"More amusing this way. Anyway, reunion is tonight. You both are  healthy so Brutus will be back later to escort you down."

"Thanks?" Brutus and her walk out. All I can think about is Clove. Why did she cut herself? It made no sense. I can't wait to see her. Luckily I fell asleep so the time passed quickly.

"Cato, let's go. Get dressed." Brutus called from outside the hospital room door. I was wearing a blue tee shirt and some shorts. On the chair there was the outfit that all tributes had to wear. This one was brand new. No blood stains,no tears,no holes. I put it on. I looked just like I did before the Games began. My impeccable abs were gone. Now my stomach had stitches on them. I was a lot skinnier than before.

"Why do I have to wear this?" I asked Brutus.

"Don't ask me."

"Alright, can we go already?"

"What's the rush big guy? You miss Clove?"

"Don't call me that. I want to go home."

"You leave for District Two tomorrow morning."

Before I knew it we got out of the elevator and I was escorted to a room below the stage."This looks like the room that you go in before the Games."

"It's suppose to. You are very smart.."

"Shut up."

"Don't get all high and mighty. I won the Games too. I could kill you just as easily as you think you could kill me."

"Don't under estimate me."

"I never said I did. I do have to say one thing to you. You did a good job in the Games. The way you fought Thresh was something.You are brave. You saved that girls life too. You did good, Cato."

"Thanks, Brutus. Guess I'll see you soon."

"Yeah. This time I guarantee you'll see me again."

The ground below me soon began to raise. I felt recaps of the Games come back to me. I killed four people in the bloodbath. That memory wasn't as haunting. The memory that haunts over me is the day Clove almost died. Before I know it, the only thing seperating Clove and I is space.

Clove's POV

When I first see Cato, my first instinct is to run and hug him. Instead I step of the platform and causually begin to walk over to him.  don't want to be super sappy. I guess we are technically a couple now. Or, are we? Cato does the same thing I do. Just about as I go to extend my arms to Cato, Cesar steps in the middle of us.

"Clove! Cato! How good it is to see you again!" He exclaims. The crowd roars.

"Good to see you too Cesar." Cato shakes his hand.

"I missed you Cesar!" I wrapped my arms around him and hugged him.

"Oh, Clove. I missed you too!" He hugged me back. "I think we all know who you really missed here." Cesar steps back. It's not long before Cato steps forward and lifts me off my feet.

We embrace for a short second before I move my head so I now face Cato. He leans in and I kiss him. I have no clue how long it has been since the Games. My guess is about 2 weeks. 2 weeks I don't remember. The Capitol doctors fixed up all my wounds. One thing they didn't fix was my hands. They stitched them up but you can still see the hearts and Cato's name. I clench my fist so Cato doesn't see them. He still doesn't know I did that in the arena.

"Alright you two! There will be plenty of time for that. Follow me." He leads us to a love seat, that has replaced a single chair meant for one victor. We sit down. We do't want to be over sappy so we just sit normally."Let's watch a recap."

As they recap on everything, I find out that it was Rue who told Katniss about the nest and Katniss blew up our supplies. I can see they cut out our night before the Feast. I see Thresh bang my head and Cato run to my assistance. He throws the knife fairly well. I then watch when I forget everything and Cato hits me. I zone out thinking about that and when I refocus myself I'm cutting my hands. I can see Cato glancing at me.

"Wow. This was most certainly a memorable Games. We were all so distracted by the Star-crossed Lovers from District 12 , that we never realized you two had something!" Cesar says.

"Well we didn't make it the most  obvious thing." Cato replies.

"I loved watching you guys.  You guys cared so much for each other! And oh, that night where Clove decided to leave. Cato, you were so sad. I think everybody was crying at that. Am I right?"

The crowd agrees with Cesar."Well, hopefully our reunion 15 minutes later made everyone cheer." I reply.

"Well, it made me happy! And Clove, when you almost died, I was praying Cato would come and help .Weren't you as well?'
"No. I knew Cato would come."

"Now, that final battle! So symbloic. It showed that even a strong person like Cato, needs help sometimes."
I knew Cato was rolling his eyes at this. Cesar was annoying both of us."Well, everybody needs help once in awhile. Let's face it, I wouldn't of won without Clove and Clove wouldn't of won without me.We helped each other out a lot." Cato says looking at me.

"Yes. I couldn't of said it better. It wasn't just about skill and survival, it was about teamwork." I finish the interview off with that statement.

"Well, you two. You are certainly something. I'm sure we will see a lot more of you two! I present you your Seventy-fourth Hunger Games victors, Cato Hawks and Clove Springs!" We stood up and i grabbed Cato's hand. We raised our hand just like District Twelve did in the chariot ride.
