Hope is like a harebell trembling from its birth. - Christina Rossetti

The Village seemed different at night.

There was a lone street lamp at the front gate leading into the Village. Since the district was still struggling with electricity, most of it was routed to the Town Centre and to people’s home. Ensuring that the streets in the district had enough lights was still work in progress and that solitary lamp casting a dim glow over the village was something they should all be thankful for.

“I am not!” I say. “I’ve been practically ripping your clothes off every time there’s been a camera for the last year!”

“Yeah, but … I mean, for the Capitol, you’re pure,” he says, clearly trying to mollify me. “For me, you’re perfect.”
