Everlark challenge: 14. What I’m afraid they’ll leave out of the movies.
“I can’t believe you didn’t rescue Peeta.”
“I know,” he replies.
There’s a sense of incompleteness. And not because he hasn’t apologized. But because we were a team. We had a deal to keep Peeta safe. A drunken, unrealistic deal made in the dark of night, but a deal just the same. And in my heart of hearts, I know we both failed.
“Now you say it,” I tell him.
“I can’t believe you let him out of your sight that night,” says Haymitch.
I don’t know why I’m scared that they’ll leave this moment out. Maybe because it’s one of my favorite Katniss/Haymitch scenes in all three books. They’re right to blame each other, and for the first time, they actually do it. They made a deal to keep Peeta alive, and they both failed. And this scene just moved me, and I can’t really explain why. But it did, and it will forever be one of my favorite scenes. Ever.
