"In My Doubt"

By Maggie's Revenge

"She lied to you."


Before my eyes, there's Katniss in my best memory. There's Katniss, hovering inches over my face. Her cheeks are flushed. Her eyes are dilated, but softness overcomes her muscles.

"She preyed on your emotions."

I see her succumb to relief.

"Her motives were based on falsehood."

She strokes my cheek.

"Nothing she did was real."

She closes her eyes and bows her head as if, at last, she can lower her guard. But there is still tension in her shoulders, just perceptible in my doubt, and I wonder why.

"She lied to me."
