Hey, Finnick, come on in! We figured out how to make you pretty again!
KEEP CALM and HAVE A SUGAR CUBE
You know, you could live a thousand lifetimes and not deserve him.
A hysterical young woman with flowing brown hair is also called from 4, but she's quickly replaced by a volunteer, an eighty-year-old woman who needs a cane to walk to the stage
I knew it. In this way, Peeta's not hard to predict. While I was wallowing around on the floor of that cellar, thinking only of myself, he was here, thinking of me. Shame isn't a strong enough word for what I feel.
So I thought if I stopped being so, you know, wounded, we could take a shot at just being friends. - Peeta Mellark
But the only thing that distracts me from my current situation is fantasizing about killing President Snow.
In my mind, President Snow should be viewed in front of marble pillars hung with oversized flags. It's jarring to see him surrounded by the ordinary objects in the room. Like taking the lid off a pot and finding a fanged viper instead of stew.
They can pump whatever they want into my arm but it takes more than that to keep a person going once she's lost the will to live.
Highly unlikely but not impossible.
Look, if you wanted to be babied you should have asked Peeta.
You're hideous, you know that, right?
A mockingjay is a creature the Capitol never intended to exist.
I look coolly in to the blue eyes of the person who is now my greatest opponent, the person who would keep me alive at his own expense. And I promise myself I will defeat his plan.
So it's you and a syringe against the Capitol? See, this is why no one lets you make the plans.
But there was only one kiss that made me feel something stir deep inside. Only one that made me want more. But my head wound started bleeding and he made me lie down.
In really bad times, the hungriest would gather at his door at nightfall, vying for the chance to earn a few coins to feed their families by selling their bodies. Had I been older when my father died, I might have been among them. Instead I learned to hunt.
They can't hurt me. I'm not like the rest of you. There's no one left I love.
I can't fight the sun. I can only watch helplessly as it drags me into a day that I've been dreading for months. Katniss Everdeen
My nightmares are usually about losing you. I'm okay once I realize you're here.
You've got to go through it to get to the end of it.
A spark could be enough to set them ablaze.
I mourn my old life here. We barely scraped by, but I knew where I fit in, I knew what my place was in the tightly interwoven fabric that was our life. I wish I could go back to it because, in retrospect, it seems so secure compared to now, when I am so rich and famous and so hated by the authorities in the capitol.
So that's who Finnick loves, I think. Not his string of fancy lovers in the Capitol. But a poor, mad girl back home.
Charred bits of black silk swirl into the air, and pearls clatter to the stage… I'm in a dress of the exact design of my wedding dress, only it's the color of coal and made of tiny feathers. Wonderingly, I lift my long, flowing sleeves into the air, and that's when I see myself on the television screen. Clothed in black except for the white patches on my sleeves. Or should I say my wings. Because Cinna had turned me into a mockingjay.
In that one slight motion, I see the end of hope, beginning of destruction of everything I hold dear in the world. I cant guess what form my punishment will take, how wide the net will be cast, but when it is finished there most likely be nothing left.So you would think that at this moment, I would be in utter despair.
They erase my face with a layer of pale makeup and draw my features back out.
I do think you're mad and I'll still go with you.
No wonder I won the Games. NO decent person ever does.
Aim higher in case you fall short.
