“So, it’d be easy for you? Using that on people?” I ask.
“I didn’t say that.” Gale drops the bow to his side. “But if I’d had a weapon that could’ve stopped what I saw happen in Twelve… if I’d had a weapon that could have kept you out of the arena… I’d have used it.”
“Me too,” I admit. But I don’t know what to tell him about the aftermath of killing a person. About how they never leave you.
Admittedly, this is a scene I had forgotten about in the books, as it’s been years since I’ve read it. The feelings, however, remain the same. I remember Katniss and Gale being shown the weapons created by Beetee, and their reactions, but this passage is so powerful to me. And foreshadowing, really.
What about you? Grab the book closest to you, or whatever you might be reading, turn to page 77, and share a passage with me! Or over on the AusYABloggers page.
