Brad Paisley

No one was more shocked than Katniss at Peeta's words. Absolutely no one. So much so that when she reached the penthouse alone she bolted to her room before he could find her.

"Katniss" She heard him say. She felt his hand wrap around her wrist. Instinctively she elbowed him in-between the ribs. She almost felt sorry when she heard a plant holder shatter and he let out a cry of pain. Almost.

She hid herself in her room and locked the door. She only came out to see the recaps because Effie forced her to.

She sat awkwardly glancing every now and then at Peeta's hands that were wrapped in gauze.

"Can I go to bed now?" She asked the moment the television snapped off, though she didn't wait for an answer. She ran away with the intent of sleeping away her worries.

Though three hours later she was still awake.

She got up and decided to take a walk to force herself to be tired. She climbed up to the roof in search for some fresh air, when she happened upon a shadowy figure.

"Can't sleep?" She asked. Reaching the railing.

He shook his head, "You either?"

"I can't seem to stop thinking."

"Thinking about your family?"

"Not exactly" She looked back down, "I really am sorry about your hands."

"It doesn't matter. I've never been a contender in these games any way."

"That's no way to think" She said.

"Not for someone like you maybe. But for someone like me... It's just I know I'm not making it out of there."

"Nothing is for sure." He looked at her for a brief second. "For all we know I could die before the games even begin."

"Don't say that"

"But it could happen. And I know one thing. When I get where I'm going, On the far side of the sky, The first thing that I'm gonna do Is spread my wings and fly.

"I'm gonna land beside a lion, And run my fingers through his mane. Or I might find out what it's like. To ride a drop of rain" She looked at him sadly for a second, "Yeah when I get where I'm going, There'll be only happy tears. I will shed the sins and struggles I have carried all these years.

"And I'll leave my heart wide open I will love and have no fear. Yeah when I get where I'm going Don't cry for me down here."

"But you're you. You're smart and a survivor. You'll make it out of there... But me... I'm not so sure"

She began again, "I'm gonna walk with my daddy, And he'll match me step for step. And I'll tell him how I missed him Every minute since he left. Then I'll hug his neck. Yeah when I get where I'm going, There'll be only happy tears. I will shed the sins and struggles I have carried all these years.

"And I'll leave my heart wide open I will love and have no fear. Yeah when I get where I'm going Don't cry for me down here."

" So much pain and so much darkness, In this world we stumble through. All these questions I can't answer, So much work to do.

"But when I get where I'm going, And I see my maker's face, I'll stand forever in the light Of his amazing grace.

"Yeah when I get where I'm going, There'll be only happy tears. Hallelujah. I will love and have no fear. When I get where I'm going, Yeah when I get where I'm going"

"But again Katniss, you won't die. You're stronger than me."

"Maybe... But how do we know the odds are in my favor?" She asked before leaving. When she gets down to her room she slips in and out of sleep until morning.
