Madge sat down on the step outside her house. The sky was turning grey with a coming storm, but she was watching her feet tape against the cement. The gate creaked and Madge looked over to see Gale coming with his game bag. She opened her mouth to say something to him.
"Hey." Gale said, like it was normal for him to stop by.
"Uh... hi." Madge said and looked down at her watch. "What are you doing here?" She asked him.
"Oh... well... I was talking the Katniss earlier." Gale said and dropped his game bag at her feet.
"Okay." Madge said and raised an eyebrow. Gale rubbed the back of his neck.
"She said that you hadn't been sleeping well." He muttered.
"She told you that?" Madge demanded, getting to her feet. "That's none of your business."
"I know." Gale said quickly, "but I when I asked about you that's what she said so."
"When you asked about me?" Madge cried, "since when do you ask about me?"
"Look you're having bad dreams, right?" He said, halting her distress.
"Yes." She blushed and looked away.
"I have something that can help you rest." He sighed and leaned forward towards his game bag. Madge watched him from the corner of her eye. He pulled out a wooden circle. String was tied across the inside of the circle in all directions. Attached at the bottom of the circle were long strings of tan and dark feathers.
"What is it?" She asked coming closer to evaluate it.
"It's called a Dream Catcher." Gale sighed. "It's supposed to catch bad dreams, spirits, and what not." He smiled slightly.
"That's... so thoughtful of you." She whispered and took the object from him.
"You hang it off your headboard." He added.
"Okay." She nodded. She looked up and narrowed her eyes at him. "Why are you doing this for me and why are you asking about me?" She demanded. He shrugged.
"Guess you'll just have to figure it out." He picked up his game bag and threw it over his shoulder. "See you later, Undersee." He winked, "in your dreams." He called over his shoulder. He closed the gate behind him and was out of sight.
