Why am I hopping around like some trained dog trying to please people I hate?
Betrayal. That's the first thing I feel, which is ludicrous. For there to be betrayal, there would have had to been trust first.
I realize, for the first time, how very lonely I've been in the arena. How comforting the presence of another human being can be.
Most of the Peacekeepers turn a blind eye to the few of us who hunt because they're as hungry as we are for fresh meat as anyone. In fact, they're among our best customers.
The anguish I always feel when she's in pain wells up in my chest and threatens to register on my face.
You've got about as much charm as a dead slug.

My little sister, Prim, curled up on her side, cocooned in my mother's body, their cheeks pressed together. In sleep, my mother looks younger, still worn but not so beaten-down. Prim's face is as fresh as a raindrop, as lovely as the primrose for which she was named. My mother was very beautiful once, too. Or so they tell me.
The cat that Prim got hates me, I think partly because I tried to drown it.
