‘I told you, he hates me!’ I say, but I can’t help laughing at the image of Haymitch becoming my new pal.
'Only sometimes. When he’s sober, I’ve never heard him say one negative thing about you,’ says Peeta.
'He’s never sober!’ I protest.
'That’s right. Who am I thinking of? Oh, I know. It’s Cinna who likes you. But that’s mainly because you didn’t try to run when he set you on fire,’ says Peeta. 'On the other hand, Haymitch…well, if I were you, I’d avoid Haymitch completely. He hates you.’
Let’s be real. Katniss’ ideal man is Cinna. Gale is more like her brother and Peeta is more or less a placeholder. In the movie, I couldn’t really feel the chemistry between Katniss and Gale or Peeta but that scene where she meets Cinna… oh my god. The chemistry was unreal. Also, Gale and Peeta weren’t that attractive. Cinna was more attractive than the two of them put together.
