Katniss continues to try and get Peeta to eat as much as possible. Katniss bribes Peeta with kisses to get him to eat. As night settles, Katniss sits next to a resting Peeta with her night vision goggles and her bow loaded. The temperature drops, and Katniss is forced to share the sleeping bag with Peeta. Once inside the sleeping bag, she realizes how high his temperature is. She spends the rest of the night trying to cool Peeta off. In the morning, Katniss is happy to find that Peeta's temperature has dropped a little. She goes out to find some food and get a bunch of berries that Rue pointed out to her. When she returns, Katniss finds Peeta awake and worried about her, "I woke up and you were gone. I was worried about you." Katniss laughs and asks, "Have you taken a look at yourself lately?" Peeta tells Katniss that he feels much better than yesterday. Peeta continues the romance and tries to get some more kisses out of Katniss. However, she refuses until he eats the berry mash. After Peeta eats, he realizes that Katniss has not slept in a very long time. He convinces her to lie down for a bit, and he will keep watch. When Katniss wakes up, she is mad at Peeta for letting her sleep for so long. Peeta explains that there was nothing going on, and he likes watching her sleep. It is time for Katniss to check on Peeta's injured leg. When she removes the bandages, Katniss knows Peeta's injury is getting worse. Peeta's leg is showing early signs of blood poisoning, and if she doesn't get Capitol grade medicine, he is going to die. Katniss tries to downplay the severity of the situation, but Peeta knows what blood poisoning looks like. After dressing the wound again, Katniss goes outside to prepare a pot of stew. She is surprised by how hot it is outside. Because of the intense heat, she can cook the stew with hot rocks around the cave. After setting a few snares to try and catch some food, Katniss returns to the cave. Katniss can tell Peeta is feeling miserable. But, the only thing Peeta wants is to hear a story about the happiest day she can remember. Katniss tells Peeta the story of how she got Prim her goat. While listening to the story, Peeta remarks how Prim and her mother sound like her. But Katniss dismisses the comment and claims she is nothing like them in the healing department. Peeta asks for additional details and understands why the day made Katniss happy. However, Katniss sees the goat as a profit machine and not something to ultimately bring joy to her sister. To which Peeta jokes, "Yes, of course I was referring to that, not the lasting joy you gave the sister you love so much you took her place in the reaping." After the story, Claudius Templesmith announces a new twist in the Hunger Games. He tells the tributes that a feast will be happening shortly, but that this is no ordinary feast. This feast will have something very specific to each district, something that is very much needed. Going to the feast is of course very dangerous, and both Peeta and Katniss know the risks. And before Katniss can get a word out, Peeta grips her shoulder and says, "No." Katniss confirms with Peeta that she is not going, but Peeta doesn't buy it, "You're such a bad liar, Katniss. I don't know how you've survived this long. Never gamble at card. You'll lose your last coin." This angers Katniss, and she tells Peeta she is going and there is nothing he can do to stop her. However, Peeta is determined to make it difficult and claims he will draw attention to his location to keep her safe. They are both at a stalemate. Katniss agrees to stay if Peeta does as she says. Peeta agrees and Katniss goes outside to get the stew that has been cooking. When she returns with the pot of stew, Peeta eats it without question. After dinner, Peeta winds down and relaxes while Katniss goes outside to wash up. As she is cleaningup, a parachute greets Katniss. At first she thinks that Haymitch has done it, and Peeta is saved. However, once she uncorks the vial and takes a sniff, she knows it is not the medicine she needs. This vial contains a liquid that will knock Peeta out so she can attend the feast. Katniss mashes up some more berries and pours in the contents of the vial. When she returns to the cave, she announces to Peeta, "I've brought you a treat. I found a new patch of berries a little farther downstream." After the first bite, Peeta notices how sweet they are. Katniss quickly tells him they are sugar berries right as she pokes the second spoonful in his mouth. Peeta is still trying to figure out the taste. Just as he is taking the last spoonful, he says, "They're as sweet as syrup... Syrup". His eyes open wide once he knows exactly what he is eating. After Peeta passes out, Katniss sits back and says, "Who can't lie, Peeta?" Share Your Thoughts: Was it right for Katniss to knock Peeta out?
