Just Stubborn Enough

HUNGER-SYLGZN

“You won’t get a hundred yards from here on that leg," I say. "Then I’ll drag myself," says Peeta. "You go and I’m going, too." He’s just stubborn enough and maybe just strong enough to do it. Come howling after me in the woods. Even if a tribute doesn’t find him, something else might. He can’t defend himself. I’d probably have to wall him up in the cave just to go myself. And who knows what the exertion will do to him? (Collins, ch. 20).
