A bit later, I’m sitting on a chair under the shade of the Cornucopia, next to Marvel. Something out of the corner of my eye moves. There is a column of smoke rising over the tree tops, “look!” I call out, pointing to the woods.
Marvel looks, and bursts into a grin, and I see Clove also look over at the smoke, she is looking at it, puzzled. She gets up off the blanket and grabs her jacket and vest, pulling them on while she walks our way.
Marvel is grabbing 2 spears from where he put them on the ground. “Let’s go,” he says.
I check my waist; my sword is still there in its sheath. “Ready,” I say.
“Ditto,” says Clove.
3 comes over holding a spear, “I’m ready too,” he says.
“Wait a minute, you aren’t coming with us.” Marvel says yanking the spear from his grasp.
“Yeah, I am.” 3 says.
“No, you’re not.” Marvel tells him.
“Yes, I am.”
“No you aren’t someone needs to stay here and guard the supplies!”
“He’s coming,” I say, I’m hoping to get 3 killed off in this trip. “We need him in the woods, and his job’s done here anyway. No one can touch those supplies.”
“What about Lover Boy?” Marvel asks.
“I keep telling you,” wait did I only tell them once? Oops whatever. “Forget about him. I know where I cut him. It’s a miracle he hasn’t bled to death yet. At any rate, he’s in no shape to raid us. Come on,” I take the spear from Marvel and toss it to 3. The 4 of us head off into the woods. As we get into the woods I say, “When we find her,” they know I mean Katniss, the girl who outscored me and dropped a nest of Tracker Jackers on me and my girlfriend. “I kill her in my own way, and no one interferes.”
“You’re being overly dramatic,” Clove tells me.
“She dropped a nest of Tracker Jackers on us,” I remind Clove.
“Yeah, and we treed her.”
“Whose side are you on?” I ask Clove incredulously.
Clove shrugs, “My side.”
