She won’t be able to handle it.

Parts I wish had made it from script to Catching Fire 9/?

  1. Peeta:Katniss... I don't know what kind of deal you made with Haymitch, but... He made me promises too. He can't save us both.
  2. Katniss:*shrugs, tries to downplay it* I'm not sure he can save either one of us. I mean, where's he been? So far the games have begun, we've gotten one spile and that's it. Where is he?
  3. Peeta:You know what I'm saying... If you die. And I life. I would have nothing. No one I care about. You're my whole life.
  4. Katniss:Peeta--
  5. Peeta:Your family needs you. You have to live. For them.
  6. Katniss:*photos in locket bring tears to her eyes, she turns to Peeta* What about you?
  7. Peeta:*he smiles and gently shrugs, without any self-pity* No one needs me.
  8. Katniss:*looks at him, almost seeing him for the first time* I do. I need you.
  9. Peeta:*he turns -- not quite believing this*
  10. Katniss:*leans in and kisses him -- THE FIRST PASSIONATE KISS OF HER LIFE, when she breaks he starts to object and she quiets him again*
  11. Peeta:*finally he just kisses back, then takes the locket off, puts it around her neck*
  12. Katniss:*smiles, locks in his eyes, touches his face, kisses him again*

If you should ever need my help… I will come.

“Those two together are like hot sex.”

Peeta was taken prisoner. He is a l i v e. He is a traitor but alive. I have to keep him alive.
