The explosions knock the wind out of Katniss and cause her to lose hearing in both of  her ears. She knows that the Careers will be coming back to see what's become of their  camp, but she can't stand. She crawls into some brush for cover just before Cato and  the rest of the Careers come bounding through the woods and into the clearing. Cato is  livid. He kills the boy from District 3 by snapping his neck and, at nightfall, the Careers  head back into the woods to hunt. The next morning, Katniss has regained some of the  hearing in her right ear, but believes the left one is damaged beyond repair. She makes  her way back to the site of her and Rue's first meeting slightly disoriented, feeling blind  on the left side of her body without any of the noises of the woods. Rue hasn't shown  yet, so Katniss waits for her in a tree. The day passes and still no sign of Rue.
