I sit quietly, watching the Cornucopia, eyeing the four backpacks, marked with 2, 5, 11, and 12. I promised Cato I would keep my only eye for District 12 to come out. But she doesnt, inside the Cornucopia, darts the sly girl from District 5, snatches her bag and sprints towards the forest. Maybe she's the one Cato and I should be concerned about. Especially if she made it this far. Impressive. But I focus my attention back on the District 12 pack. I don't care if Thresh comes around and snatches his. Cato can handle him easily.
Then I see my chance, Katniss leaps from the bushes, loading an arrow, and heading towards the mouth of the golden horn. I take off after her. As soon as she's just a few inches away from the table, I reach for my best throwing knife and threw it at her head, it only misses by a few inches, now she releases her arrow to me. It gets lodged only in my leg. My heart begins to race and I quickly remove the arrow, while she's loading another. As soon as it's out she releases the next, this time aiming for my heart. I turn to the side, avoiding my death sentence and I charge at her.
We both go into a tumble, but very soon she's pinned under me, my knife is held up against her throat.
"Where's your boyfriend district twelve? Was this little pack carrying medicine for him?" I ask tauntingly waving her pack above her, just like she waved the aroow above all of us before we were attacked by tracker jackers.
"He's out there, right now, hunting Cato. PEETA!" she screeches at the top of her lungs, I drop the knife and jame my fist into her windpipe. She chokes on her voice. I raise my head up and look around. Could it be? Did he really make a full recovery? Is he really hunting Cato? No one appears, I turn back to Katniss.
"Liar! Cato knows where he cut him. Do you have him strapped to a tree? Trying to keep his heart going?" I see that you were going to help him-" I say in my sarcastic tone, which I'm known for. She's grunting, trying to get off thE ground and out from under me. I'm too strong for her to lift. "Forget it Tweleve, we're going to kill you, just like your pathetic little ally. That little girl, what was her name? Rue? Well, first Rue, and now you, We'll let nature take care of Loverboy. How does that sound?" I end pulling out a smaller knife and pointing it towards her throat.
She spits up blood and siliva into my face. I release the smaller knife to wipe it off. My eyes flush with rage. I pick up the knife again. "Now, where to start? Why don't we start ot the mouth, you won't have very much use of it anymore, unless you want to blow loverboy one last kiss." I'm just about to slice her muth open when a bigger force lifts me off of her and slams me into the side of the Cornucopia.
"What you do to that little girl? You kill her?" the voice roars at me, I realize, it's Thresh.
"No, no it wasn't me! Is was Marvel-" he cuts off my voice again.
"You said her name! I heard you! You cut her, just like you were gonna do to this girl!" he roars again. Now I'm losing it. I screech out to the top of my lungs,
"CATO! CATO!" I screech. I hear his reply, but very dim,
"Clove!" he must still be trying to hunt Thresh, but didn't realize I'm his next prey. Now I noticed the rock, the size of a loaf of bread. And it's aiming towards my head.
"YOU SAID HER NAME!" he makes one final roar and brings the rock down against my skull, and drops me. I reach up to feel a dent in my temple. Is this really happening? I'm going to die here? Maybe Cato could win for me. I hear the faint conversation of Thresh and Katniss. Maybe he'll kill her now. But insted I see him take off and Katniss in the other direction. I close my eyes for the last time.
The cannon fires, and now I greet death and enter the new world of darkness.
