Hey NessaMei here! Here is the first chapter of this story! It's pretty short, but I'll make them longer if I get more reviews. ;D

Katniss Everdeen. Along with her voice, her name is music to my ears. I have loved her for so long, but she will never love me back. Even if she does, at least one of us has to die. Even if it is with my final breath, I will protect her.

The thing is: I don't want to die. I wish Katniss could live with me and I already told her that I would protect her at all costs, but she declines. She is a tough girl with a tough heart. I know that I will never be able to meet her standards.

No matter how gentlemanly I try to be, she will never love me. She already has her family and Gale. If she makes it back, she will probably marry him. How I envy Gale Hawthorne. Best friends with the prettiest girl in District 12 and he never tried to make a move. No, I won't let her go back home just to forget about me and start a life with Gale.

If I can't protect her, the question is: How do I kill a mockingjay?

This thought takes place right after the Reapings on the train to the Capitol. The next chapter is probably going to be from Haymitch!
