9. Chapter 9

Clove's POV

After my interview, I went back to the apartment we were staying in. Olivia stopped by and gave me a new outfit. This one was for the party. She did my hair all pretty."Olivia, no makeup please."

"Ugh, Clove. We have to cover this scar! How did you get this anyway?" She replied.

"Just put my hair in front of it. That will cover it. And long story."

"You can tell me,Clove."

"Well, no. Never mind."

"Ok. We are done!" She put a bobby-pin in my hair and sprayed my hair with hair spray. I had one strand of hair covering my scar and the rest was up in a bun. I have to say, I looked good."Now, put on your dress."

"Alright." This dress was a short red dress. It was tight on top and loose on the bottom. It had a black ribbon around the waist. 

"Your favorite color."

"Thanks, Olivia. I love it."

"And here. I know you hate heels." She handed me red shoes, just like my pink ones.

"Thank you. Think Cato will like it?"

"Clove, he loves anything you wear. Don't worry about him."

"Good point."

*Walking into the party*

"Be on your best behavior." Harley said while looking at Cato."Be good, Cato. No punching anyone or anything for that matter."

"No promises,Harley." Cato laughed. Cato had a black tux on with red accents. He looked really handsome."Did I tell you, you look beautiful?"

"No, but I could tell you thought that." I laugh.

"Was it my face?"


"Have fun! Go." Harley pushed us forward.

Cato grabbed my hand and I pulled away."Clove."

"Sorry." I grabbed his hand. Everyone was looking at us."Cato, I don't like this."

"Me neither."

"We should find my dad."


"You have to meet him someday."


"I'd like to invite Cato and Clove to the stage! Let's give them a big round of applause." Some man said.

Cato's POV

I don't want to propose to Clove in front of all these people. I have a better idea."Clove,slip this on."

"Why?" She asks.

"Just do it. We are going up to announce our engagement."

"Oh, ok. Good idea." She slips the ring on. A smile breaks from her lips.


"I don't know. It just, feels right."

"It does."

We go up to the stage. Of course Clove knows what to say." We want to thank you for coming out here to celebrate our victory and our engagement." The crowd gasps." Thanks for coming and thank you Snow for throwing this! You know how to throw a party!" Clove holds up her drink," Drink up!"

We walk off stage."Good job." I whisper to her.

"Thanks. Let's just say, I know how to work it."

"You do."

"Clove!" A man approaches us.

"Hi,dad." Clove hugs him.

"How are you? It's so good to see you."

"Good to see you too."

"So, is this Chato."

"Cato." I interrupt. I extend my hand but he just glances at it and looks back up to Clove.

"Chato, Cato. What does it matter?"

"Yeah, you're right, it's just my name." I sarcastically say.

"So, you are the boy marrying my daughter?"

"That'd be me."

"I'm going to go look for Ariel. Be nice." Clove walks away, leaving me with her dad.

"I never pictured my daughter with someone more like Jeff. Jeff was nice."

"I almost  killed Jeff."

"Of course my daughter likes the brutal one. See, Jeff was just right. He was tough but had a heart unlike you."

I tried to control my anger."Your daughter gave me heart." 

"Don't try to impress me. I don't like you. My opinion of you won't change."

"I just met you. How do you already hate me?"

"For what you did to my daughter in the Games."

"You mean when I saved her life. If I didn't care about her, I wouldn't of ran to her assistance when Thresh was going to crush her skull."

"Oh, please. I know why you kept her alive."

"Because I love her."


"Dad." Clove walked back over.

"What do you find attractive about this boy? He is fiend."

"Everything, Dad. Whether you like it or not, you have no opinion in this. You have no opinion in my life."

I tried to hold back my anger. 

"Listen,Clove. I'm your dad. I can, and will, give you my opinion and you should take it."

"I will never take your opinion. It means nothing to me."

"Why do you even like him?"

"I like him because he is short-tempered,has angry issues, isn't scared of anyone, I love his skills with a sword and his willingness to punch anyone,any where."

"And those make great characteristics for a husband or dad?"

"Did I say the sex is great?"

Oh god. Clove did not just bring that up. I really want to just walk away. My anger has filled my entire body. It's a surprise that I haven't attacked him yet.

"The whole country of Panem watched it. See Clove, this is why I didn't want to take part in your life. You always to something that makes me regret having you." Clove and I are both pissed.

Clove jumps without hesitation and pulls out a lethal looking knife. The blade must be ten inches."I regret a lot of things. One of them is not killing you."

Her dad is now  against a wall and Clove is laughing. I don't hold her back."Clove, don't throw that knife."

"Why should I listen to you?"

"Because I have one too." Her dad pulls a knife out."You wouldn't kill me. You aren't a real killer. You just think you are. Unlike me, I will kill you."

"No you will not." I step in.

"Standing up for her? How sweet. I'm not scared of you two."

"Cato." Clove hands me a knife.

"Thank you, Clove."

"You aren't scared? Well, you should be." Clove punched him with the handle of the knife. I grabbed the knife out of his hand and slammed him against the wall." You bastard. You don't know what I am capable of do you? You were to busy rooting for Twelve you probably didn't know your own daughter was in the Games."

Clove prepares herself to throw the knife. Just as she is about to release it a Peacekeeper picks her up and carries her away."Cato!" She calls for me as she struggles with the Peacekeeper.

"Clove." I'm yanked back by a Peacekeeper.Suddenly we are brought away from the area we just were. I thought they were going to kick us out.

"Cato and Clove. What troublemakers you are." I hear Snow. He comes up behind us.
