Who: Finn and Katrina Magby (Finnick Odair and Katniss Everdeen) When: Tonight Where: Their place What: Finn and Katrina discuss their relationship and Peter Rating: Low
Things had been weird. He had tried to pretend like everything was okay between them, because he didn't know what else there was to be said that they hadn't said the night everything had happened. But Finn could still feel everything between them. Things had never been like this for them before. They had always discussed everything. And now it seemed like they were talking, but the things they were saying didn't mean anything.
He knew that Katrina loved him, but this thing had called their whole marriage into question somehow. He had looked back over the time they had been together with this new perspective, keeping in mind her precise words. And it'd dawned on him that Katrina wasn't attracted to him. She was trying to be because she cared about him -- because she did love him. But everything past that was built on a lie. And it was that epiphany that was torturing Finn, because what was he supposed to do about that? That wasn't the sort of thing you could change. But it was the sort of thing that could wreck a marriage.
(And quietly, he wondered what it said about him and the kind of person he was. How could he have not known before? And they obviously couldn't do anything remotely sexual now. It was practically some kind of abuse.)
So, here they were, sitting at their kitchen table for another uncomfortable meal.
"Kat," he said finally. "Can I ask you something?"
