“If this eye cannot see a thing, then it does not exist. That is the assumption under which I have always fought. What is this "heart”? If I tear open that chest of yours, will I see it there? If I smash open that skull of yours, will I see it there?“
♥♥♥ On March 3rd, 1997, the beautiful, hilarious, talented, and amazing Karla Camila Cabello Estrabao was born. Today she turns seventeen. Happy Birthday hun, I hope you have a wonderful day, and thank you so much for inspiring and entertaining all of us over the past two years. ♥♥♥
He’d asked Haymitch to “bring something nice” because it was her birthday. Peeta should have known that meant Haymitch would bring Capitol-grade liquor. He was determined to celebrate Katniss’s birthday this year, even if it just meant the three of them sharing a meal full of Katniss’s favorite things served on real dishes. Last year, when Peeta’d planned on taking her for a picnic out at the lake because Spring had come early and May 8th had been a beautiful day, he’d all too quickly realized that it was going to be one of her bad days, and instead of enjoying the weather and the lake, she’d spent the day in bed, while he’d spent it quietly baking in their kitchen instead of the bakery—just to keep an eye on her.
So this year was different. And perhaps slightly less ambitious. Which is okay, because May 8th this year is rainy and unseasonably cold. But that just means that the lamb stew tastes especially good, and that steam coming from the fresh cheese buns makes them look even more appetizing. Then, after they’ve finished, and Haymitch is still sitting at the table with them, Katniss reaches for the booze and pours them all a drink. Peeta’s surprised, and also slightly worried when she does, but he accepts it and sips on the bitter liquid all the same. And he smiles softly when Katniss raises her glass just barely off the table, holding it like she’s giving a toast. She tells them that they should do this more often, and that she loves them both. And even Haymitch laughs when she narrows her eyes at him before turning her gaze to Peeta.
“But I love him more.”
