peetas face when she hugs him

You know I love this chunk of the book and affectionately refer to it as Cheese Bun Time.

  • I love all of them together joking even under the watch of the Peacekeepers.
  • His arms around her. I imagine him hugging her from behind. What do you guys think?
  • That he knows she’s hurt from her small reaction.
  • Their kiss. 
  • It doesn’t say it in the text, but Peeta has a smirk on his face when he’s teasing her. The good kind. You know what I’m talking about.

It’s clear that Katniss knew the whole pregnancy thing was fake. She looks surprised when Peeta first dropped the baby bomb, but she also looks sad. When Peeta hugs her, you notice this look on her face. To me it almost seemed like she was mulling it over. Her pregnant with Peeta’s baby. She has that bit of sadness on her face because she has planned on sacrificing herself to keep Peeta alive, and thus eliminating children as a choice for them. And as she’s hugging him, she’s thinking how, if only for a moment, it doesn’t seem like such a bad idea.
