When Thresh grabbed me and held me up against the Cornucopia, I was scared. For the first time in my life, I was scared of dying. I screamed the only name I could think of. "CATO!" I screech. "You kill her!? You kill Rue!?" Thresh thunders. "N-No. CATO!" I stammer. "Clove!" I hear him shout. Thresh slams me against the Cornucopia. He is going to do it again and end my life. When he suddenly tenses up. He lets out a low moan and I look down to see the blade of a sword through his stomach. He drops to the ground, releasing me and I see Cato, my Cato behind him, pulling the sword out. He saved me. He looked panicked as he looked at me. "Clove!" He says, dropping his sword and stepping towards me. I fling myself into his arms. I am still breathing heavily and my heart beats quickly in my chest. When his strong arms wrap around me I felt safe. I breathe in deeply the scent of Cato. He has this, special scent. I don't know cologne or something. He rubs my back soothingly. "It's okay Clove. It's fine now. I'm here for you." He whispers into my ear. There was no stopping the tears coming out of my eyes. "I thought I was going to die. I thought I would leave you." I sniffle. "I thought I had lost you too. Don't leave me." He says. I nod, pulling away and staring into his eyes for a split second before crushing my mouth against his. I take him by surprise and he falls backwards onto the ground. I pull away breathing heavily. "You saved me." I breathe. He chuckles, looking up at me. "Then just shut up and kiss me." He replies.


I saved Clove. I made it in time. We get our medicine and my ankle heals soon. Katniss got away and Clove kept apologizing. "No, no, it's not your fault. It's fine, we'll get her soon. As long as you're safe, nothing else matters." Thresh died. So now, Finch, and both from twelve are alive. "We'll win, trust me." I say.
