I turn spontaneously to Chaff and offer my hand. I feel my fingers close around the stump that now completes his arm and hold fast. And then it happens. Up and down the row, the victors begin to join hands. Some right away, like the morphlings or Wiress and Beetee. Others unsure but caught up in the demands of those around them, like Brutus and Enobaria. By the time the anthem plays its final strains, all twenty-four of us stand in one unbroken line in what must be the first public show of unity among the districts since the Dark Days.
“Sometimes when I’m alone, I take the pearl from where it lives in my pocket and try to remember the boy with the bread, the strong arms that warded off nightmares on the train, the kisses in the arena.”
In the first gif, it’s obvious that Katniss is the one who goes in for the kiss. In the second one, it’s also obvious that she slightly pulls away, thinking the kiss is over.. But in the third gif, Peeta does the only selfish act he’s probably ever done. He pulls Katniss back to him and deepens the kiss, because he’s planning to die soon, and he wants to kiss (really kiss) the girl he loves for the first and last time.
