The white curtain that divides my bed from the next patient’s whips back, and Johanna Mason stares down at me. At first I feel threatened, because she attacked me in the arena. I have to remind myself that she did it to save my life. It was part of the rebel plot. But still, that doesn’t mean she doesn’t despise me. Maybe her treatment of me was all an act for the Capitol?

     “I’m alive,” I say rustily.

    “No kidding, brainless.”

She always told you...

that angels were watching over you. It’s one of the first things you can remember. About her. It is one of the earliest memories you can recall and it is just as present in your mind as is her humming “Hey Jude” to you as a lullaby. Only years later you realized not every child was sung to sleep with that song. You can still find yourself singing it in your head when you lie in some motel room bed, somewhere in America and you feel cold and alone. It’s that memory of her that keeps you warm, keeps you burning. She said she’d even told you that angels were watching over you already, when you weren’t even born, but only kicking her belly and that there was a tiny angel sitting atop of your bed to protect you in your sleep. Sometimes you wonder if that same angel used to guard Sammy’s sleep too and you can’t help but get angry, because if it had been there it failed at its job. You kind of know the feeling of that. To fail. No matter how big or small. Angels are watching over you… In the end she was right. Angels did watch over you and Sam, but so drastically different to how she believed. Yes, they were watching over you, but in the end it’s always been just one, who wasn’t just watching over, but looking out for you…

MONDAY: Favourite Quote // 2x13 “Houses of the Holy”


Someone who has all the qualifications to be a “miracle”, yet didn’t become one of the Generation of Miracles. Has the same gift as the Generation of Miracles, the last to awaken his talents. “The Miracle who did not become one of the Miracles”. And then, he met with his fated shadow. The true light.
