The anxiety was intense I stare vividly at the television. Waiting for the cannon to sound signaling cato's death. When morning comes I stop breathing as she, my sister, tentatively approaches cato's body. When she finally puts him to rest I am relieved, they won! Peeta and Katniss won. Then a voice sounds, announcing "Lady's and gentlemen a previous rule has been overlooked and there can only be one victor." One victor. My mind tries to process what that means, and at the moment I cannot bring my self to admit what was just said was real, or a figure of my imagination, and for a second I had myself believing it was my imagination, until I saw the way Katniss and Peeta looked at each other. With their weapons drawn I lost my breath at the fact that Peeta was so much bigger than my sister. My hope was crushed when I saw him begin to through his knife. I snapped my eyes shut, I do not want to see this, I cannot, I wont. No cannon yet so I opened my eyes and see that Peeta has disposed of his weapon and Katniss has dropped hers, and as an alternative they are both holding out dark berries. Staring for an explanation in my sisters eyes I found the love between the two. And as the two put the dark berries in their mouths a frantic voice announces "Stop-stop, lady's and gentlemen I give u the victors of the seventy-fourth hunger games, Katniss Everdeen and Peeta Mellark." I gasped for air when I saw the two spit out the berries. The joy to see them alive, Katniss alive was lifting. My sister is coming home.
Standing in front of a huge group of people awaiting the arrival of the victors of the Hunger Games, it had a different meaning this time because someone I knew, someone I loved was returning.I could not wait for the moment it would happen. Then suddenly I had a moment of wonder, after they return, would Katniss? I know the victors of the Hunger Games would return, but would my sister be the same. Would she even care that I was waiting for her, would she leave me for Peeta. After seeing the love in their eyes I couldn't help but think returning to district 12 for Katniss would only mean returning home with Peeta, and a time to shut her family out like our mother did to us. She would not do that,would she? But I am not sure I know her anymore, but here, now, is the time to find out. The train comes to a halt, and the seconds tick by slowly, and last an eternity. With so many questions running through my mind I accept the possibility of Katniss abandoning me to be a victor of the seventy-fourth Hunger Games. I lift my head to find some answers to my questions and find her. I see Katniss Everdeen but with Peeta as well, her eyes are scanning the crowd, she looks tall, strong, and fierce, when suddenly her eyes meet mine. Then she transforms into who I remember my sister, her eyes lightened suddenly I could not recognize her has a player in the Hunger Games. "Katniss" I say under my breath
Katniss, my sister, leaps of the train, not with Peeta, not out of an act of publicity, but only to embrace me. I hugged her back and time stood still. While we stood there in each others arms I heard her say "I'm home." To me this means more and I do not think she understands how much those words mean to me, but now I know. My sister is home.
