Number Twenty-Two

Title: Except

Summary: Maysilee Donner was brilliant.

Perspective: 3rd Person. Haymitch POV. Previous to Book One.

Prompt: (For SonofHell666) Haymitch; Maysilee

Maysilee Donner was brilliant. Mad brilliant. A survivor.

The kind of girl whose mind was more a weapon than her dart gun. The kind of girl whose will laughed when you tried to tell her no. The kind of girl whose heart was fierce enough to turn and run rather than kill a partner, even if she'd abandon their troth.

It's what Haymitch wants to remember most about her when he wakes, still unable to see straight, from nightmares of watching her insides outside of her.

Maysille Donner was brilliant. Mad brilliant. A survivor.

(Except she didn't survive at all.)
