The hilltop view is chaos. Fires consume miles around, wind stirs the fumes, skyscrapers crumble. She gasps. Memories, however scattered, tell her this is wrong. They fixed this. Prevented this.
She'd made a deal once to forget all this, to move on. Was her mind clearing?
Behind her, a rustle. A man. Tall fit. Dressed simply, holding a tattered book.
"Who are you?" She steps back.
"I trained you. We were... partners. For a while..."
"...Jackson." She eyes the city. "Didn't we... fix this?"
"We did. We fixed everything, actually."
"You left. We made the world perfect. Fixed history. Then sat. We had thought we were working towards going home. Cycles passed, Darus soured, believing we were all fated to traverse the gates without true course, forever. But you... You left with the only ticket out. Then Darus devised a plan: undo some of our greatest repairs…"
"And bring me back…"

"What is this?" Lily asked, spotting a piece of scarlet fabric in one of the last few boxes we had yet to unpack. "Uh, nothing," I lied as I sat onto the bed, biting my lip. She pulled it out and revealed that it was a sweater some distant aunt or grandmother knitted for me. Along with the sweater with a bright gold J right on the front. I felt my face heat a little bit and she burst out in a grin. "James Potter! You have a sweater with your initial on it? That's so cute!" she laughed, a symphony of bells playing out. I couldn't help but love her laugh. With the rest of her, it was just to perfect. The redhead bounded over to me and kissed me on the jaw, leaving me to my thoughts. I blushed a little more, unable to help myself. We'd just graduated from Hogwarts and, after dating for the better part of the year, she finally agreed that we could move in together after school. So that's exactly what we were doing. As much as I hated to, I had to get out of that house. There were too many

"I'm sorry, you're what?" Eleanor barks at me from across the table.
"I told you, I-"
"Oh I heard you. Snow's granddaughter. I'm just curious as to how on earth you expect us to believe your ridiculous lie."
"I'm not lying! I wouldn't lie, not about this," I say, my voice catching.
No one really reacts, all too shocked to do much more than stare. Every eye bores into me, and I sigh with relief when the silence is broken.
"How could you possibly have been reaped if you are his granddaughter?" questions Athena. "Everyone here knows how the Capitol manipulates everything to work the way they want it. Why would your grandfather, the ruler and controller of the Games, possibly put his own kin in them?"
"Just because I am family does not mean I am treated like it," I start. But he was going to save you. He was going to have you win. I take a deep breath and continue

It takes me a while, but gradually I begin to disappear. I smear dirt and mud all over my clothes and smudge it on my skin. I entwine reeds and grass in my hair.

I'm so tired . . . My eyelids are slowly sinking shut and before I know it, I've fallen asleep.
I feel worse when I wake up a few hours later. Something else is very wrong with me. My head feels thick. And . . . feverish. I'm sick. My leg is throbbing badly. I will not be able to search for Katniss anymore. There is absolutely no way. Even if I could get out of this prison of weeds I've put myself into, I just don't have the strength. My only hope of seeing her again is if she finds me before I die.

Setting: Jace just dropped off Clary at Amatis's house, and he starts thinking about her.
(PS: This is just before he confesses his love)
He stared at the door for a little bit longer before walking off into the night. As he was walking, his mind began to wonder about thoughts of the past few weeks...
If only she hadn't followed us and saw us kill that demon, he thought, none of this would have happened. Clary would have been dating Simon, and Jace would be flinging himself in paths of demons, risking his life 'cause he had nothing to live for.
But, she had shown up and changed everything. Everything.
She'd changed him in a good and bad way. Since the first moment he saw, he couldn't get her off his mind. Since he brought her back to the Institue-after begging Hodge to let him bring her back-he's wanted to kiss her.
Then that day finally did come. When Hodge told him it was her b

Haymitch detaches himself from the dry bar when it finally sinks into his thick skull that Bartel won't even supply him with rubbing alcohol on Effie's orders. His face is screwed up like a well-shaved bear who's been stung on the snout by a bee who didn't like him. And I get the funny feeling that we're in for it as he makes a direct line for the banquet table where Madge and I are seated.
And I'm right. Haymitch drags out a chair next to me that was abandoned by my brother Rory and slumps down into it, casting a jaundiced eye at the pot of coffee in the center. He pours a cup for himself and lets it turn cold.

Prim uncovers her ears long enough to hug Katniss and then me, while Mrs. Everdeen pretends she isn't crying again. Wedding guests throw ticker tape made from shredded confidential paper by the handful. Effie, in her new role as wedding planner, says it's the only way they can recycle them.

Before we can get sucked back into the fray in the conference room converted into a banquet hall, I hook Katniss's elbow and we're out of here.
