The Tally of the Victors’ Vote

Was it like this then? Seventy-five years or so ago? Did a group of people sit around and cast their votes on initiating the Hunger Games? Was there dissent? Did someone make a case for mercy that was beaten down by the calls for the deaths of the districts’ children? The scent of Snow’s rose curls up into my nose, down into my throat, squeezing it tight with despair. All those people I loved, dead, and we are discussing the next Hunger Games in an attempt to avoid wasting life. Nothing has changed. Nothing will ever change now.

  • what she says:i'm fine
  • what she means:finnick and annie were so close to living a beautiful and peaceful life together with their son after years of torment and abuse but finnick volunteered to help bring down the capitol so everyone else could have a better life including annie no matter what happened to him and now annie has to go on without him and she's strong as hell but imagine how perfect they'd be as a little family with their son in district 4 free from the capitol's oppression and free at last to just live their lives and do what they want without the fear of more violence and cruelty and they really could've had it all at last because they just deserve all the happiness in the world
