The Letter Q Chapter 19 Quick Quotes

bottom of page 247 to 248

I never understood why Katniss and Peeta didn't become allies from the start. Does it take bending the rules, or making a new one in this case,  to make Katniss do that? I am more ecstatic over the news than Katniss is. The two can live now. It's a relief but I wanted them to choose it for themselves.

Peeta's doing a good job staying alive so far. How did he do it? Do you think his camouflage skills paid off? I can't imagine him hiding underneath a rock bleeding to death all this time. It's been days maybe even a week since Cato cut him. Katniss should have come to his rescue sooner. When she almost steps on him he says.....

"You here to finish me off, sweetheart?"  I love that!

"Peeta!" she yells. He's all covered in the mudd and very well camouflaged. It's a miracle she finds him. He looks like the rock itself, that's how well he's hidden.

"I guess all those hours decorating cakes paid off."

Peeta smiles. "Yes, frosting. The final defense of the dying." :p beautiful.

Katniss reminds him they are on the same team now and that he isn't going to die. She wants to wash him off and clean him up but he's really weak. He wants to whisper something in her ear so she leans down and he says..

"Remember, we're madly in love, so it's all right to kiss me anytime you feel like it."

How can he joke at a time like this? I think he's just happy to see her and I hope the feelings mutual jeez. His wounds are pretty bad and he is suffering from blood poisoning. At least Katniss has a first aid kit from the boy from district 1 except it doesn't have everything she needs to treat him with. She draws out the tracker jacker venom with the medicine leaves and gives him some pain killer. She applies burn ointment on his deep cut and wraps his leg up but it doesn't do any good with his pants being so dirty and full of contagion. She can't stomach all the puss and she's sure she's killing him but then Peeta asks

"How about that kiss?"  She pretty near falls over laughing.

She's not as good as her mother is treating wounds and puss, Peeta jokes about her comment about killing him "Can you speed it up a little?" he asks.

Peeta was right, for a lethal person she sure is squeamish at the sight of all that puss! euh. Peeta hasn't been given a single gift so far.

Katniss needs to move him to someplace safe so he can get better but he can't make it very far without fainting so she finds a cave made out of a big rock 20 meters from where they were by the stream, and he's panting and shivering. She thinks he's going to die and leans over to kiss him then.

After that they receive a parachute gift. A pot of broth. What kind of gift is that when he can't even eat? well he takes it anyway but it's not anything that will save him. What they need to do is make out more. That's the message she's getting from Haymitch anyway. More Romance!
