Katniss’s yellow dress and Peeta’s blue suit. Just perfect.
“I raise my left arm and twist my neck down to rip off the pill on my sleeve. Instead my teeth sink into flesh. I yank my head back in confusion to find myself looking into Peeta’s eyes, only now they hold my gaze. Blood runs from the teeth marks on the hand he clamped over my nightlock.
“Let me go!” I snarl at him, trying to wrest my arm from his grasp.
“I can’t,” he says.”
Then I know Prim is right, that Snow cannot afford to waste Peeta‘s life, especially now, while the Mockingjay causes so much havoc. He‘s killed Cinna already. Destroyed my home. My family, Gale, and even Haymitch are out of his reach. Peeta‘s all he has left.
“So, what do you think they‘ll do to him?” I ask.
Prim sounds about a thousand years old when she speaks.
“Whatever it takes to break you.”
