————— Finnick and the Capitol —————
There is a knock on the door and I rush to open it.
"Finnick! Where have you been? You said you’d be round over an hour ago."
I then realise that something is wrong. He looks shaken, running a hand through his hair distractedly.
"Yeah, I’m sorry.. I.. had a visitor." He replies.
"You did? Who?"
The one word is enough to send a shiver down my spine. What did Snow want with Finnick? He’d done his Games, he’d suffered enough.
"Was it about mentoring?" I ask, hoping that that’s all it could be, that Snow didn’t have any other reason to visit Finnick.
"Umm.. yeah, I have to go to the Capitol early, attend a few parties just to ensure we get good sponsorship."
I breathe a sigh of relief, but something still doesn’t sit quite right. Finnick knew this was coming, he knew he’d have to mentor the tributes from our District. He wasn’t happy about it, of course, but why did he look so shaken up?
I just hope he isn’t lying about Snow.
