142. When Katniss went picking flowers to decorate Rue’s body, she had no idea she was being targeted. That is until the shakiness of her hands and ragged sobs were noticed by her stalker. Then the predator lowered his weapons. He observed as Katniss traveled to and from the little girl to adorn her tiny body with wildflowers similar to the ones home in Two. He observed Katniss hugging Rue’s lifeless body, shutting her eyes and finally kissing her forehead. It was as if the little girl could be sleeping. The Games did this, thought the person crouched in the bushes. And he realised that his friends, family and neighbor’s home in Two were loving this and now egging him on to kill Katniss. He sickly pictured his father waving his fist at the screen saying, “Kill.” So Cato slid his knife back into it’s sheath and walked away. He would kill District Twelve. But at the moment, he could not.
