She comes to him the night before the reaping of the Third Quarter Quell. He’s sober and full of hatred for the Capitol and there she is, a product of everything he despises. It’s the first time that they kiss and his hands grip her just a little too tight, his teeth draw blood and his kisses leave marks on her soft skin. When she leads him to his bedroom, he tears the wig from her head and uses his shirt to wipe the make-up from her face.
