The bird, the pin, the song, the berries, the watch, the cracker, the dress that burst into flames. I am the mockingjay. The one that survived despite the Capitol’s plans. The symbol of the rebellion.

Peeta’s the good one, the likable one. He can make people believe anything. I’m the one who shuts up and sits back and lets him do as much of the talking as possible.

I’m sorry, Peeta. I’m sorry I couldn’t save you.

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.

The one who could think of the right thing to say when nobody else could.

I don’t want them to change me in there.
Turn me into some kind of monster that I’m not.

Do you know breaks my heart?

Peeta was probably 99.9% sure he was going to die in a few days’ time during each one of these interviews and yet he was able to keep it together in order to do everything he could to save Katniss.

RUDE

I never wanted any of this. Never wanted to be in the games. I just wanted to save my sister, and keep Peeta a l i v e.
