I open my mouth, planning to start off with some kind of joke, and burst into tears.
So much for being strong.
Sometimes things happen to people and they’re not equipped to deal with them.
In stark contrast to two nights ago, when I felt Peeta was a million miles away, I’m struck by his immediacy now. As we settle in, he pulls my head down to use his arm as a pillow; the other rests protectively over me even when he goes to sleep. No one has held me like this in such a long time. Since my father died and I stopped trusting my mother, no one else’s arms have made me feel this safe.
