ďWeíve reached a stalemate. I canít shoot Cato without killing Peeta, too. He canít kill Peeta without guaranteeing an arrow in his brain. We stand like statues, both of us seeking an out. [...] As in a last-ditch effort, Peeta raises his fingers, dripping with blood from his leg, up to Catoís arm. Instead of trying to wrestle his way free, his forefinger veers off and makes a deliberate X on the back of Catoís hand. Cato realizes what it means exactly one second after I do...Ē

The Hunger Games, Chapter25 ~ Suzanne Collins

Ok I never use this phrase, but this is so badass!! I loves this part of the book, it may or may not have something to do with Peeta being my only fav character remaining (poor little Rue, I knew the second I got attached to her Iíd given her a death sentence with my whole fav character dying in anything and everything thing :roll:)

I wasnít happy about the background, I wanted a dramatic cloudy storm thing going on but Iím pretty sure its daytime at this point and hot... so I settled for a storm rolling in :P

This won the 2011 Pearl Award for 'Best Action' on the Forums, so THANKS GUYS!!!!

Don't know why I haven't favorite this already; I've loved it for years! This is exactly how I imagine Cato looking; he looks too pretty-boy for me in the movie! I love all the details, such as Peeta's twisted leg and how much of Katniss' jacket is missing! It's fantastic!
I didnt read the book so this makes me notice that he did do it in the movie, lol

Hmmm we must have seen a differet movie then :S In the movie I thought he only tapped at the hand, not dug his finger into his leg and put a cross there
I just meant that he'd noticed her about Cato's hand and I'd missed that moment until I saw this. Ok?
May my bad English makes you get me wrong.
