#this is so painful to look at #because at first katniss is afraid that the canon was for peeta #then peeta comes up looking so disoriented and scared #and then #katniss’s face switches into remorse for peeta because it was his first kill #but then happy he’s alive #and this just hurts
Anyone? On Snow’s visit before the Victory Tour, he challenged me to erase any doubts of my love for Peeta. “Convince me,” Snow said. It seems, under that hot pink sky with Peeta’s life in limbo, I finally did. And in doing so, I gave him the weapon he needed to break me.
“Annie Cresta. The girl Mags volunteered for.”
Of a sort.
“No one really needs me,” he says, and there’s no self pity in his voice. It’s true his family doesn’t need him. They will mourn him, as will a handful of friends. But they will get on. Even Haymitch, with the help of a lot of white liquor, will get on. I realize only one person will be damaged beyond repair if Peeta dies. Me.
