"Stay with me until I fall asleep
Stay with me…”
-Kiss It Better by He Is We
Here, have some Clato.
Clove didn't expect their relationship move to the arena. She wasn't an idiot, only one could survive. That's why she was so surprised when Cato crawled into her bed the night before and told her "Things were not going to change. At lest not yet."
"One of the reasons it took Cato so long to kill Thresh
was Thresh getting such a long head start after Clove’s death
Cato wouldn’t leave her body for hours. Thinking maybe there
was still a chance, even after the canon went off.” -Anonymous
Clove was sleep, exhausted from 12 hours of labor. Cato sat beside her, proud of all they had been through. She had given birth to a beautiful baby girl. He waited for the doctors to finish checking the baby. There had been a slight complication, but they had told him it was nothing major.
The door opened, one of the nurses holding a sleeping bundle. “Here she is.” The nurse whispered. Without hesitation, Cato stood up, rushing to hold his baby for the first time. With careful hands, the baby was slipped into his large arms. And, for a moment, he stared, frozen in place. She was so tiny, and compared to his massive arms she seemed even smaller.
"She’s beautiful." He muttered, slowly retreating back to his chair.
The nurse left without a word. Cato had not noticed, his eyes too focused on his baby girl. “You’re going to kick ass, just like you’re mama.”
"What do you think of Ivy?" Clove’s sleepy voice came from the bed, drawing Cato’s attention for a moment. A smile fell on his face as he nodded.
"Our little Ivy."
