“Ladies and gentleman, from District Four, please welcome Finnick Odair!” Caesar Flickerman’s voice boomed. The audience erupted into applause as Finnick came onto the stage, the bright lights illuminating his face and causing him to squint slightly. When he saw everyone staring at him expectantly, he gave them all a bright grin.

“Mr Odair, we are so glad to have you here tonight. So tell me, what was it like to leave behind your family in District Four. It was hard, I imagine.”

He nodded in response. “It was. I only hope that I’ll get to see them again.”

There was a collection of ‘aahs’ from the audience and Caesar nodded towards them. “And not just family, I hear there’s a special someone as well. Y/N?”

Finnick gave him a look of surprise and confusion. “Y/N? They’re my friend. I mean they’re special, of course, but not in that way.”

“Of course. So, they’re your friend.”

“They’re my best friend. Actually, more like a sibling. Been around for longer than I can remember.”

"So you hope to get back home and see them again?”

“Absolutely”

Caesar Flickerman, the man who has hosted the interviews for more than forty years, bounces onto the stage. Its a little scary because his appearance has been virtually unchanged during all that time. Same face under a coating of pure white makeup. Same hairstyle that he dyes a different color for each Hunger Games. Same ceremonial suit, midnight blue dotted with a thousand tiny electric bulbs that twinkle like stars.

Meanwhile in the Mellark family...
  • *Baby cries*
  • Katniss: *groans* your turn, Peeta...
  • Peeta: no no, it's your turn, Katniss. I've done it a thousand times this week.
  • Katniss: But I'm too tired...
  • Peeta: Heh, coming from a girl who started a revolution..*mutters* Can't even change a diaper..
  • Katniss: *stands up* tisk, fine.
  • Peeta: *imitating Caesar Flickerman* One more question, Ms. Everdeen--or shall I say, "Girl on Fire,"?
  • Katniss: *rolls eyes*
  • Peeta: You love me. Real or not real?
  • Katniss: last straw
