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
Everything is happening too fast for me to process it.
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.
It'd be better if he were easier to hate.
So I thought if I stopped being so, you know, wounded, we could take a shot at just being friends. - Peeta Mellark

I pull an arrow, whip the notch into place, and am about to let it fly when I'm stopped by the sight of Finnick kissing Peeta. And it's so bizarre, even for Finnick.
Katniss, when you are in the arena,you just remember who the true enemy is
