I asked. Johanna nodded. "There are more behind-the-scenes ways support District 13. I give them information. Being the center of social life in the Capitol has its perks, and I have a whole bank of secrets. But they want you to rebel against Snow to encourage people, I presume?"/p

I'm still being watched closely by the whole nation, being one of the newer victors. People look up to me."/p

Because you've already given them your family." I stood up, and Johanna did too. "Just hold on a few more years, Johanna. Katniss is getting more and more reckless, and we all know she's our ticket out of here."/p

Like I said, I don't really have time to update over the summer, so if I have time I will, but chances are, I won't post again until August or September. Anyway, this is the beginning of Part 2 out of 3, so your welcome :)/span/p
