They do exist. Matt is proof of that, but they're not easily attained and they're hard to hold onto when everything else is so much easier.

Matt wishes he could rewind things for her and let her have that innocence back. He can't though, but he can give her a little taste of it. She'll have to trust him for that though.

No. She didn't say the wrong thing. She helped them clear up something that both of them had been wrong about. She might say things that surprise him or shock him, but she won't say anything that makes him leave and anything she does say will eventually help them . Communication is a good thing. She can change now. She's got that opportunity.

Change is hard and it doesn't come overnight, but it's worth doing. If he knew that, it would just reinforce his idea that they need to slow down. He's beginning to get a picture of what else had gone on in her past. It's not hard to put together and it makes him want to hurt the people that had done this to her very badly. No one should be in those circumstances, least of all a teenage girl. Maybe she needs to stop and think, realize what she's doing, realize all of those things. It might be beneficial in the long run.

If she feels like scowling, then she ought to scowl. There's a difference between physically happy and actually happy. Right now, he's bewildered and worried, excited because of the prospect for a romantic relationship with her and yes, happy, but that's not all that's going on right now.

It's hard to focus when she's touching him like that. He feels like he can't breathe and it takes him far too long to put words together. "Katniss. Slow down. That's not--this isn't how I want us to do this," he tells her. He takes a shuddering, deep breath. "Trust me," he tells her, reaching down to take her wrist again in his hand. "Trust me this time, okay?"
