“I can’t win. Prim must know that in her heart. The competition will be far beyond my abilities. Kids from wealthier districts, where winning is a huge honor, who’ve been trained their whole lives for this. Boys who are two to three times my size.Girls who know twenty different ways to kill you with a knife.”
In Panem they don’t say “I love you”, instead they kneel beside their district partner and desperately beg them to stay with them as they are moments away from death. Tragically just-rip-my-heart-out-and-take-it beautiful.
