In this journal I am going to talk about how I think Katniss feels about the whole situation with Peeta. As we all know after the rule change now allowing two winners from the same district, Katniss finds Peeta and they team up. When she finds him, hes pretty beat up with a particularly big gash in his leg. They camp out in a small cave while she nurses back to moderate health. Katniss makes a realization during her time with Peeta. The more they keep up the "Star Crossed Lover" act, the more gifts they receive from sponsors. Well at least its an act for Katniss, as we know Peeta is truly in love with her as he states in his interview. Katniss and Peeta kiss on numerous occasions and the gifts keep rolling in, mostly food to keep the two going. Deep down I think Katniss is starting to develop some feelings for Peeta but not nearly as much as he loves her. I think it is a scenario where an obligated fake love is shown but then a legit love comes out but in this case the legit love is not very strong or at least coming from Katniss. Somewhere in the back of her mind, Katniss must be thinking of how things will be if they are to return home with Gale awaiting her return. There has always been something between Gale and with him watching the games on TV, seeing all of the romance between the two will he be upset? Will he fight Peeta for the love of Katniss? What do you guys think?
