She is aiming her last arrow at Cato’s head, a shot that will kill him, then it’ll just be her and me left. No, I won’t let that happen, I did not come this far to let Cato just die. I won’t let that happen, he’s too important to die, too important to just be...Gone. I take a knife from my sheath, now I’m the one with more weapons, making me the bigger threat; Katniss turns the bow to me. Cato takes a step closer to Katniss, who points the arrow at him, and then back to me, she’s confused at who to kill.
Me! I want to shout at her, she should kill me; Cato deserves to get out of this hell. Out of all of us, Cato deserves to go home free.
I think of the time that Katniss dropped the tracker jackers on us, she deserves to die, right? She has a little sister, a family. I remind myself, we all have families and lives to get back to. My other part says. Yes, but her family needs her more than yours needs you. There are 3 of us left, if Katniss dies, that means two can live, if Cato or me die that means that only one can live, so really it’d be a waste of a life to spare hers, right?
I can’t think like this, I have to get Cato home, no matter what the cost. I run at Katniss, she turns the arrow at me at lets it go. I duck, the arrows grazes my cheek, I can feel blood and the burning sensation coming from the wound. I jump towards Katniss, and tackle her to the ground (of the Cornucopia) just like I did during the feast. We roll on the Cornucopia, but the space is too narrow, and the next thing I know, I’m falling, and Katniss is with me, I can hear Cato yelling my name, and I briefly register that I fell off the Cornucopia, before I hit the ground.
Next chapter I'll post on Saturday :) Don't forget to review! <3 ~Bookfanic~
